The Property

Dunvegan 10 miles. An immaculate and luxuriously presented detached cottage, occupying a superb hillside setting on the Waternish Peninsula on the north west of the Isle of Skye. This Skye cottage has been built to very high standards and takes full advantage of the fabulous sea and mountain views. Very well appointed throughout, this Skye cottage is ideal for a family or friends who wish to enjoy time together exploring the magical Isle of Skye, and the wonderful scenery and wildlife that the island has to offer. There are four spacious bedrooms in this Skye cottage, with an en-suite shower room to the master bedroom. The large open plan living area in this Skye cottage is a fabulous space, with an impressively equipped kitchen, a large dining area positioned to take full advantage of the fabulous views, a comfy seating area and even a cross trainer for working off all that holiday food whilst gazing out to sea! The main sitting room is a very comfortable space for total relaxation, and the views from the picture window are sure to be more appealing than any TV programme! Outside this Skye cottage there is a large paved patio area, an ideal spot for alfresco dining or a pre-dinner drink. Within a short drive of this Skye cottage is the historic village of Stein, which not only has its own inn, reputed to be the oldest inn on Skye, but is also home to a renowned seafood restaurant which is well worth a visit. The Waternish area itself is brimming with local craft industries such as Skyeskyns, a tannery and showroom, and Halistra, a local pottery perfect for gift purchases. The area has some fabulous walks, and a meander through Waternish Forest will take you down to the black coral shores of Score Bay. The Isle of Skye has much to offer visitors and your Skye cottage will be a joy to return to after a day exploring.

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.
