The Old Thatch is a, fully restored, traditional stone built cottage with a marram grass thatched roof located in Tiree's main township, Scarinish.
The cottage nestles in a small cluster of houses, known as ‘Macleans row’ and looks out on to open grazing and has views of the sea from the front. It has easy access the shore at Scarinsh harbour and adjoining beaches, and is just a short walk to shops and local facilities.
The Old Thatch is available for short lets and full weeks.
The exact age of the cottage is unknown, but it is believed to be several hundred years old. The cottage is small but perfectly formed, providing comfortable accommodation for 2 people. It has been sympathetically restored to a high standard providing modern comforts, whilst maintaining it traditional features and charm. The accommodation consists of just two main rooms.
The property sleeps two in a ground-floor double bedroom.
The Living Room - This incorporates the kitchen and dining area which has a Belfast sink, an electric range style cooker. Sofa, fire place with electric stove, TV/DVD, wi-fi
The Bedroom - Has a window to the front looking across open grazing towards the sea. It features a full sized double bed and a luxury roll top slipper bath. In the corner of the room is a small separate wc (or ‘An Taigh Beag’).
The house has been kept in traditional style; painted white with a red door, and traditional marram grass thatched roof. The property is situated within a fenced garden.
Due to the traditional structure of the house, the doorway is not wide enough to be wheelchair accessible.
You can book Monday to Friday (4 nights) or Friday to Monday (3 nights) or full weeks.
