This comfortable detached cottage boasting fabulous views of the Cuillin Mountain range is situated on the outskirts of the capital town of Portree, on the magical Isle of Skye. Very well appointed throughout, this Portree cottage offers spacious accommodation, ideal for a family or group of friends who wish to enjoy time together exploring this stunning island with its dramatic scenery and wonderful wildlife. This single-storey Skye cottage has two well proportioned bedrooms, a dining room and an impressive sitting room with bay window to take full advantage of the widespread views. The well-equipped kitchen has a door that opens onto a secluded patio area, and the large mature gardens that lie to the front and rear of this Portree cottage provide excellent space for relaxation. The famous town of Portree with its pretty harbour, array of shops, lively pubs and good local facilities are just a short walk from this Skye cottage, plus there is no shortage of places to go and things to do on the island. For something a little bit different, travel to the north end of the island to Staffin beach, where you will find fabulous sands and even dinosaur footprints, which were left some 165 million years ago. Whatever you choose to do and wherever you choose to go, you will most certainly be happy to return home to your very own Portree cottage.
