The Property

Broadford 1 mile. Set back from the road that leads from the Skye Bridge through the Isle of Skye, this immaculately-presented semi-detached cottage, in the crofting township of Upper Breakish, a mile from Broadford, makes an excellent holiday home. The large picture window in the sitting room looks across to a traditional thatched cottage and out across Broadford Bay beyond, and over to the Red Cuillin mountain range, meaning the evening sunsets at this Skye cottage can be stunning! This cosy Skye cottage is within a 10 minute walk of a lovely peaceful golden sandy beach, which you will probably have all to yourself! This cottage on Skye, which offers WiFi internet access, has a bright spacious sitting room with dining area, a smart shower room, a well-fitted fully-equipped kitchen, a cosy south-facing sun room with views across heather moorlands and two spacious bedrooms. This Skye cottage is conveniently situated to enjoy this fantastic area. You can travel north from your cottage on Skye, towards Portree with its pretty harbour, or take a short drive south and call at Armadale Castle with its beautiful gardens. Why not cross the Skye Bridge to visit the famous Eilean Donan Castle or the charming village of Plockton complete with its palm trees? There is an abundance of wildlife all around this Skye cottage, with dolphins, otters and even the odd passing whale to be spotted when close to parts of the coast. Closer to home, the friendly village of Broadford offers great dining out opportunities, and there is a restaurant 200 yards from this lovely cottage on Skye. A great Skye cottage base for discovering the magical Isle of Skye and its many delights.
