The Property

Uig 3 miles. This wonderful detached cottage is situated in the friendly crofting community of Totescore on the stunning north eastern tip of the Isle of Skye, three miles from the village of Uig. Accessed via its own private road, this traditional Skye cottage is a much-loved family home dating back to circa. 1870, and forms part of a 15-acre working croft. Tastefully appointed throughout, this charming Uig cottage is ideal for a family or group of friends who wish to savour the dramatic and unspoilt beauty that the magical Isle of Skye has to offer. There are three delightful bedrooms on the first floor of this cottage near Uig, all fitted out with oak furniture, whilst on the ground floor is a bathroom with underfloor heating, and a large open plan living area with beech wood flooring, a cosy open fire and a smart and well-equipped Shaker-style kitchen, all of which make this room an ideal place to prepare a celebratory meal or simply enjoy the peace and quiet on offer from this Skye holiday home. The parking area at the front of this Uig cottage leads around to an enclosed and pretty rear garden with mature plants and shrubs, so why not sit and enjoy the lovely mountains views, or better still, put on your walking boots and explore the dramatic Trotternish Ridge close by, which offers both short and long high level walks and of course, fabulous views? The pretty village of Uig is close by, and just a 20-minute drive away is the capital town of Portree with its busy harbour and selection of shops and restaurants. The whole island is easily accessible from your Skye cottage and what a perfect place to return to at the end of a busy day - just kick off your shoes, light the fire and relax.

About the location

UIG

Portree 14 miles.

The village of Uig (pronounced "oo-ig"), at the northern tip of Skye, rests on the shores of Loch Snizort, Skye’s largest sea loch off the Atlantic. The village boasts two pubs, two shops, a hotel, a filling station and cafe, as well as two other businesses well-worth a visit. Uig Pottery sells a range of high quality pottery produced on-site, while the Skye Brewery sells its own superb real ales from the brewery shop. Sheltered by high ballistic cliffs, the bay is one of the most beautiful in Skye, and is home to the ferry crossing to the Western Isles. Wildlife in the area includes golden eagles, sea eagles, puffins, pilot whales, seals and dolphins. The attractions of the Isle, including the main town of Portree, are all within easy reach of this tranquil base.
