The Property

Uig 6 miles. This charming, typical crofter's cottage is located in the pretty crofting hamlet of Kilmuir on the north western edge of Skye, benefiting from exceptional views across the Minch, towards the Outer Hebrides. This Skye cottage is very well-equipped and comfortable, and is ideal for any group to embrace the splendour of Skye. With enticing, panoramic views from each window on the first floor, guests will find two bedrooms and a bathroom. The ground floor boasts a shower room, a pretty farmhouse-style kitchen with dining area and a relaxing sitting room with woodburner, ideal for cosy nights in. A spacious garden lies to the front of this Skye cottage, a wonderful place to unwind and absorb the sights and the tranquil atmosphere after a hike along the coast. Within easy walking distance of your Skye cottage is the Museum of Island Life, with its traditional thatched cottages and artefacts offering a taste of life for the crofters in bygone days. The area is rich in wildlife and rare birds, including majestic golden eagles which regularly soar overhead. This is a walker’s delight, and as your Skye cottage is ideally situated at the north end of the wild Trotternish Peninsular, close to the fabulous Quiraing and the sandy beach at Staffin, there are plenty of options for exploration on foot.

About the location


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.
