The Property

Dunvegan 8 miles. An immaculately-presented semi-detached cottage, attached to the owners’ home in the village of Edinbane, centrally located on the magical Isle of Skye. This Skye cottage has views out over Loch Greshornish, and the evening sunsets can be quite spectacular. This Skye cottage is ideal for a couple or small group of friends who want to explore the fabulous island by day, and relax in the comfort of their cottage in the evening. The zip/link super king-size double bedroom comes complete with a seating area, second TV and tea making facilities and has a spacious en-suite shower room. The kitchen/diner in this Skye cottage is very well equipped, with every possible appliance, and the sitting room is both stylish and comfortable. Outside this Skye cottage there is a seating area overlooking the neat front garden, and just a short walk away is the shore of the Loch. Edinbane has both a small hotel and an inn, with the latter offering live traditional music. The village also offers the Edinbane Pottery workshop and gallery and the Skye Stained Glass workshop. Just a five minute drive away is the Waternish Peninsula, which boasts an area rich in history and culture and has a seafood restaurant, craft workshops, the oldest inn on Skye - The Stein Inn and spectacular views. The main village of Dunvegan is a ten minute drive away and offers enhanced shopping and dining-out facilities, including the Old School restaurant. Dunvegan is also home to the famous castle with its beautiful gardens, and in the summer months, the Seal Boat Trips running from the pier are a must to see the seal colony at close quarters, plus the village of Glendale is within driving distance and offers the famous Three Chimneys restaurant. Skye has much to offer, and at the end of a busy day you will be delighted to return to your Edinbane cottage.

About the location

DUNVEGAN

Portree 22 miles.

The village of Dunvegan is set in the north west of Skye and contains a mixture of traditional stone and modern houses, along with a selection of shops and hotels. About a mile from the village is Dunvegan Castle, home to the Clan MacLeod, who have continuously occupied the castle since the 13th Century. Also in the area are the Cullin Mountains with their fantastic rock forms and pinnacles, which many climbers would put at the top of their list. Other attractions on the Isle are plentiful - visit the Talisker Distillery or Portree, the island’s only town, set around its natural harbour, which boasts an excellent range of shops, hotels and restaurants, and also offers Sea Eagle trips from the pier, which are extremely popular.
