    “The cottage was really well equipped, with everything you could possibly need to enjoy your stay.”

    Would certainly recommend. The only feedback would be to replace the mattress of the master bedroom to provide more support.

The property

A beautifully presented property on the outskirts of Uig in a remote area of the Isle of Skye, situated with views out to sea and the croft land.

Skye House features large glass windows and doors throughout the property, making the rooms light, bright and a sense of bringing the outside in.

The main living space is open-plan and on the left there is a seating area which centres around a large two-way fireplace, whilst the middle of the room has a beautiful dark wood dining table perfect for enjoying a delicious meal together, and on the far end you will find the stunning kitchen - featuring a traditional cream Rangemaster cooker, sleek wooden worktops and a Belfast style sink.

The kitchen is fully-equipped to a very high standard and boasts far-reaching views over the croft ground.

The additional lounge area is modern with plush seating, a fluffy rug and modern, painted-brick fireplace, giving you another space to sit back and relax as the sun goes down.

The large, Smart TV allows you to catch up with your favourite shows or watch a film on a rainy day.

Take five minutes, just for yourself, and relax with a book in the small office area, or check your emails if you really have to!

Skye House has three large double bedrooms, each finished to a really high standard with en-suite rooms that feature high-quality appliances and a modern and clean decor.

A short drive takes you to the village centre of Uig, where you will find an assortment of pubs, cafes and local shops as well as the main ferry terminal, which gives you access to the Outer Hebrides.

The capital town of Portree is just 14 miles away and boasts an abundance of wildlife and dramatic scenery, perfect for photography enthusiasts and keen hikers, although it is also famous for annual events such as the Portree Show, the Isle of Skye half marathon and the Skye Highland Games.

The Fairy Glen, one of the Isle of Skyes most enchanting attractions, is also nearby so take a walk and discover the magic of these unique geological formations.

About the location


Portree 15 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 cliffs, the bay is one of the most beautiful in Skye, and is home to the ferry terminal for the Outer Hebrides. Wildlife in the area includes golden eagles, sea eagles, 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.
