The property

Broadford 10 miles.

This delightful, 100-year old detached stone croft cottage is nestled on a pretty hillside in the friendly, small crofting village of Camus Cross, within driving distance of the village of Broadford on the Isle of Skye.

Solas means light in Gaelic, and the cottage has been converted into a modern, comfortable and beautiful home.

It offers wonderful panoramic views across the sea, enjoyed by dolphins and seal, to the mountains of Knoydart on the Scottish mainland.

This Camus Cross cottage is ideal for a family or group of friends who will simply love the breathtaking views and appreciate the wildlife and scenery.

There are three bedrooms at this cottage near Broadford, with a well-equipped kitchen/diner and a 250 square feet sitting room, which was once the byre used by cows, sheep and horses!

The sitting room is a bright and sociable area, which benefits from a welcoming multi-fuel stove, fully-folding oak doors that open onto a private front garden, double height ceiling, a multi-use games table and a high quality surround sound audio system.

The lawned garden is the perfect place to relax on sunny days with a good book, that’s if you can keep your eyes off the view!

Within walking distance of this cottage in Camus Cross is a hotel and small harbour, used by yachtsmen, fishermen and locals.

This cottage is ideally placed for the Skye Bridge so guests not only have the whole of this beautiful island to explore, but can also travel to the mainland to explore the villages of Kyle and Plockton.

This is a truly magical location for a great holiday on Skye.

Guest Reviews


    • “Cosy cottage with stunning views”

    • “We stayed at Solas for a week to celebrate our wedding anniversary, having been married just along the road in the nearby hotel. The property was superb, and certainly exceeded our expectations. Very well appointed, very well finished and very well located. When we arrived the first thing we did was open up the bi-fold doors in the living room and just sat and soaked in the stunning views over to Knoydart. There's a lovely big stove in the living room, however we only used it twice, and even then it was more for the comfort of a fire rather than needing the heat. Solas is well insulated and is a very toasty property, we had all but one of the radiators turned off during our stay. I think even on the coldest wintery day you'd not need all of the radiators on. The only criticism I could really level at the property would be that the trees in the neighbouring garden obstruct a little bit of the view, however the views are still stunning, and to get the full vista all you have to do is go a few steps down to the bottom of the garden. We'll certainly be back, it was fantastic value for money and was a genuinely lovely place to stay for a week, we were sorry to leave.”

    • “We were delighted with Solas, it was a beautiful cottage with stunning views out over the Sound of Sleat to Knoydart. It was comfortable, warm, very well equipped, just perfect for us.”

    Mr Jameson, Dufftown, October 2015

    • “The location of this property was fantastic. The views from all windows at the front of the property were amazing over The Sound of Sleat and Knoydart mountains. It was cosy & comfortable, and we had plenty of hot water for showers when wet from a day in the rain. Skye was also a revelation, very varied and very beautiful even in the mist and rain.”

About the location


Portree 29 miles.

Skye's second largest village, Broadford lies in the shadow of the Red Cuillins and spreads itself along the southern side of Broadford Bay. Views extend out to the Isle of Pabay and more distantly to the Applecross mountains on the mainland. The village caters well for the tourists with shops, hotels and colourful craft stalls. Close by is the little village of Elgol, which enjoys 'the finest view in Britain' - the end of the Cuillin Ridge seen across Loch Scavaig. From Elgol pier take an unforgettable boat trip to Loch Coruisk in the heart of Cullin Mountain Range. The nearby Sleat Peninsula known as the 'Garden of Skye' has many attractions and a ferry link to the mainland - Armadale to Mallaig.
