The Property

Portree 12 miles. An immaculately-presented semi-detached cottage occupying a stunning hillside location on the magical Isle of Skye. Adjoining the owners’ own home but with total privacy, this Skye cottage really provides exactly what visitors to this beautiful island wish for; stunning sea views to the front with the Cuillins providing a dramatic backdrop. Very well-appointed throughout, this Skye cottage is ideal for a family or a group of friends who will appreciate the unspoilt beauty of the island and all it has to offer. With generously-proportioned rooms, this Skye cottage has three bright bedrooms, two at ground floor level. The contemporary fitted kitchen is open through to the fabulous dining room, with its picture window providing lovely views across to the Isle of Raasay and surrounding mountains. The sitting room is situated on the first floor to ensure the best possible outlook, and visitors will not be disappointed - there is even a telescope provided, ideal for wildlife enthusiasts! Outside this Skye cottage there is a garden with seating area for guests to enjoy the views and tranquil atmosphere, and just a short stroll along the road will take you to the Sconser Lodge Hotel, with its small intimate bar serving real Skye ale. Journey north to the island's capital Portree, and from there take a drive around the northern tip of the island with its rugged coastline and pretty white cottages or venture south to the 'Garden of Skye', with its lush flowers and dense forests. There is something for everyone here from mountain climbing to bird watching. Your Skye cottage is perfectly placed for easy access to the whole island and you will simply love it!
