Perfect spot for an elopement! We came to Skye to elope in Fairy Glen and could not have been happier with our stay at Mint Croft. The view from the Blackhouse is amazing no matter the time of day and changes all day long. It's located in a remote area, but close to several amazing restaurants. Definitely unforgettable, I'd recommend a stay here to anyone!

Little piece of heaven - We had a wonderful stay at Mint Croft on our honeymoon and didn't want to leave. I can't remember how we stumbled upon Shaz and Ali's gorgeous place, but if you're reading this don't hesitate to book - it's cosy, romantic, beautifully designed accommodation with stunning views and close to some of the best walks and restaurants on the island (book ahead!). We hope to be back very soon!

Heavenly stay on Skye - Shaz and Ali present a warmth that will heighten the mood of any traveller. Their professional backgrounds and artisan sense have directly contributed to the making of their incredibly crafted properties. Onto the buildings: we were fortunate to have booked both buildings. Architecturally they are a delight, and the care and meticulous curation of interiors are rare to encounter. An easy summary: Book now!

Idyllic and stylish. Five stars plus. We stayed here and loved every minute. If you want to enjoy peace and quiet in beautiful accommodation then this is the place. Views are amazing. Our accommodation had everything you would need. Restaurants are a wee drive away with one of the best Loch Bay only a five-minute drive. Thank you for making our stay so memorable.

Fantastic luxury stay with money-cannot-buy views! Mintcroft was amazing! My husband and I were lucky enough to stay in July 2019, and it was a fantastic experience. From the outstanding views (which changed almost hourly with the mist rolling in and out over the sea); the unique lodgings; luxury furnishings; to the beyond dreamy bathroom (which included a bathtub fit for two). Mintcroft is an isolated oasis, and we highly recommend it to anyone wanting to explore Skye."

On Top of the World! Knowing that my ancestors came from the Isle of Skye, the island has held a fascination for me for a long time. I knew I would eventually get there, but I never had any idea that I could stay in a crofter cottage like my ancestors had built, but with a very distinctive 21st-century twist. Mint Croft combines old-world charm with new world luxury. Shaz and Ali have created a beautiful and peaceful haven in which to "get away from it all." The Isle of Skye is a magical island, on top of the world, and Mint Croft is THE place...

Absolutely perfect stay at Mint Croft! Our recent stay at Mint Croft was an absolute dream! Friendly, quiet, beautiful, comfortable, meticulously clean...we were torn trying to decide whether to spend all of our time in our gorgeous house, or outside in the spectacular scenery. Shaz & Ali have created a stylish yet perfectly relaxing space. From the spa bathroom, cozy bedrooms, and delicious breakfasts, to the adorable lambs and breathtaking views from your windows- we were overwhelmed by every single detail! I CANNOT recommend this property hi...
