About Us...

The Isle of Skye's Longest Established Garage

We are a family run business, established in the late 1950’s. When Ewen MacRae first took over the business from Storment and Maclean they were a Massey Ferguson dealer.

Throughout the years after that we have traded as British Leyland, Rover, Renault, Volkswagen, Ford dealers and a Unipart centre.

We are now on our fourth generation in the business with Ewen’s son Donald running the business, his son Donnie as service manager, daughter Lorraine the shop manager and two of Donald’s grandchildren Grant and Nicole in the recovery and service department.

Now that "Silkie" has had her annual service and her MOT for another year, she is running beautifully again - though the timing belt still has to be adjusted, and that's been arranged for early December. John and I are always very impressed with the helpful and efficient service we get from macrae's. And the staff can be kindness itself, always very patient with a couple of "oldies" like ourselves. For all of which, our thanks.
