  • "The Lookout had fabulous views however it didn’t stop raining and the gutters were leaking quite badly."

    Facilities 80% as we cooked every meal ourselves due to bad weather and local cafes being closed. Lack of baking trays and smaller pans. Banged my head on the bathroom shelf over the sink due to the narrow sink. However, it is a beautiful property with modern interior decor. Shops are close by and in Broadford. Would not hesitate to recommend and would go again in a different season.

  • "Stunning views, beautiful location."

    Very clean, warm and cosy. Great WiFi. Only problem we had was there was a lawned area advertised which wasn’t there, there was a garden area with a fire pit which was lovely but no lawn. As we took our little dog we ideally wanted a grassy garden area.

  • "Excellent place and fantastic location."

    I’d go back in a heartbeat. Really helpful and detailed guidance in the folder provided by the owners. Very comfortable. Amazing views and extremely peaceful. Great if you want to switch off.

  • "We are a family of 5, with 3 adventurous and energetic boys."

    The Lookout is a deceptively spacious house, beautifully decorated and maintained. Excellent cleanliness. The location is stunning and the walk down to the beach was great for using up that energy! The property manager was kind and helpful when we needed to call on him and the cleaner was just as lovely. All in all a five star review. Would definitely recommend!

    Hi Rebecca, I’m so pleased you enjoyed your time at The Lookout and thank you for the lovely review. Best wishes, Dulcie. Property Owner

The property

Broadford 12.6 miles.

Perched in the idyllic location of Saasaig near Broadford on the Isle of Skye, discover this splendid single-storey property, The Lookout.

Boasting magnificent ocean and mountain views, off-road parking and a woodburning stove, The Lookout welcomes seven guests to bask in the ultimate getaway in Scotland.

Cross the threshold into your new home-from-home into a light and airy reception area leading to the open-plan living space; the social hub of the home, it boasts all the necessities required to make your self-catered stay a success, as well as plenty of places to relax and spend quality time with your loved ones.

Allow your designated chef to rustle up a tasty dish as you set the table, ready to tuck in as the conversation flows and wine is poured.

If you prefer to dine alfresco, step out into the enclosed garden or onto the front deck and take advantage of the garden furniture so you can soak up your pretty vistas for a little while longer before curling up on the sumptuous sofa in front of the roaring woodburning stove.

If you begin to feel tired, wash away the day in a sleek shower room before retreating to one of three neatly-presented bedrooms including two king-size and a triple bunk, a tranquil spot to slope off into a deep slumber.

Sit and soak up the breathtaking views from the property, which include the mystical ruins of Knock Castle, ancient stronghold of the MacDonald clan, looking across the Sound of Sleat to the wild and rugged mountain peaks of uninhabited Knoydart on the mainland.

While away the hours spotting dolphins and eagles using the high-definition telescope in the living area or spend the evenings enjoying a great selection of board games and books, before snuggling up and watching a movie on the 42" Smart TV.

There are plenty of children's books and beanbags too, perfect for the little ones of your group to enjoy!

If you can tear yourself away, venture to the nearby village of Armadale where you can find a shop, perfect for stocking up on the essentials; further afield is Broadford, hosting a supermarket and a selection of bars and restaurants, perfect for a delicious local meal or light refreshments!

Spend the day at the spectacular Sandy Beach, Aird of Sleat where you can admire the beautiful views, take a scenic stroll or paddle along the shores, or journey to Dunscaith Castle and tour the ancient ruins.

Well-positioned to embark on a challenging hike to the summit of Bla Bheinn and Sgurr Alasdair, there is plenty to see and do.

Hop in your car and tour the Isle of Skye's impressive list of global bucket list destinations including The Old Man of Storr, famous for being the filming location for the BFG movie, The Quiraing, the Fairy Pools and the Fairy Glen.

Tour the whisky distilleries of the island, sample some of Scotland's finest cuisine at the famous 3 Michelin Star restaurant The Three Chimneys, hike to the abandoned fishing village of Leitir Fura or wander the streets of Portree with its picturesque harbour and colourfully painted houses.

For a truly unforgettable break on the Isle of Skye, book a stay at The Lookout.
