Mint Croft view across Loch Snizort
Mint Croft view across Loch Snizort

The soaring spirit and serenity of Skye are reflected in Mint Croft,
sitting high over the sea yet blending in to the landscape around.

THE BLACKHOUSE

A renovated Hebridean Blackhouse with a traditional turf roof. The stone walls are nearly one metre thick, making this a cosy and cocooning abode. Floor to ceiling windows frame stunning views over Loch Snizort to the islands of Harris and Lewis. The open plan living and dining area features a Devol hand-crafted kitchen. For 2020 The Blackhouse will be sympathetically linked to the old Stonestore behind. The entrance hall leads to a Fired Earth designer bathroom with large bath and rain-head shower. The first floor reveals an elevated bedroom, with super-king bed and sitting room suite with endless views to the beach at Bein an Sguirr and sea cliffs beyond.


THE CROFT HOUSE

A traditional Hebridean croft house built in 1934 by local craftsman in village stone. The Croft House and herb garden have stunning panoramic sea views across Loch Snizort to the Ascribe Islands and the Trotternish Ridge. A spacious, slate-floored kitchen and dining area feature a Devol hand-crafted Shaker kitchen. The welcoming stone-walled sitting room and library has a toasty wood-burning stove and solid oak floor boards. Upstairs, the bedroom has a vaulted ceiling with beams in local Douglas Fir and a super-king bed. Next to this is a Fired Earth designer bathroom with rain-head shower plus a large, separate dressing room with custom-made wardrobes and a huge mirror.
