About the property

Stay Taigh Walker.
July 2022 saw the renovation completed on Taigh Walker, one of our Kenovay croft houses. We have kept the name which this croft house is known locally as "Taigh Walker" (Walker's House) after being built and owned by generations of the Walker family until recent years.
Taigh Walker has been newly renovated to create a modern, bright, well appointed and peaceful house with uninterrupted panoramic views over fields to the Reef Reserve. View from the north to the islands of Rhum, Eigg and Canna; across the Lochaber and Argyll hills; to Mull with Ben More; onto Iona; to the Paps of Jura and Islay in the south.
Relax, unwind and listen to the calling Corncrakes and watch the surrounding wildlife with a 7 minute walk taking you down the road to the seals at Balephetrish Bay.
Centrally situated in the Crofting township of Kenovay, the house is an ideal base for walking, cycling and engaging in the island’s many outdoor activities as well as exploring the magnificent beaches and numerous cultural sites.

    Simply stunning house and location - the photos don't really give you a real insight into how well this house is furnished and its cracking location. The weather was cold when we were staying but the heating is ultra efficient so we warmed up very quickly. Beds and bedding are really excellent quality and very comfortable. Smart TV is installed and the wifi was really good. Plenty of parking and a handy shed to keep bikes in. Fully Equipped so there is nothing you need to bring in terms of hairdryers, irons etc. Very peaceful location overlooking the coastline directly towards Scarinish. Lots of birdlife, hares and the cattle in the field were curious and kept us entertained.
    Lovely place - you will not be disappointed if you choose to stay here.
    PS - The fresh scones, homemade butter and jam were delicious too!

    Highly recommend this lovely house that has been freshly renovated to a high standard. Everything you need was there and the owners couldn’t have been more helpful. Lovely welcome and would definitely book again. Thank you to Archie John and Caroline for a lovely stay and the fresh homemade scones which made a lovely touch!
