    “The cottage at Ridge End is just a wonderful little escape.”

    The cottage is exceptional. It has more than anything you will need for your stay - the kitchen is stocked like a full kitchen - not just a few little broken utensils and mis-matched plates like you often get at rental homes, oodles of towels and blankets, and comfortable beds & furniture. The views are stunning and the location at the end of the Trotternish is a great starting point to see most of what’s what on Skye while still being away from it all - and any drive you do to get to things ...

The views are stunning and the location at the end of the Trotternish is a great starting point to see most of what’s what on Skye while still being away from it all - and any drive you do to get to things is breathtaking and part of the fun. Catriona was just lovely and always available with answers to questions. To sum it up: we booked 7 days and extended to 10 we loved it so much.

The property

Situated in the scattered and isolated crofting township of Conista, within the surrounds of Duntulm, in the far north of the Trotternish Peninsula of Skye, Ridge End Cottage enjoys spectacular views over tranquil crofts to the sea and distant mountains.

Unusually designed, the traditional, whitewashed exterior of this detached cottage belies its modern décor, with a cathedral ceiling and a mezzanine bedroom.

The high standard of craftsmanship, cosy furnishings and amount of wood used give a warm, welcoming atmosphere.

With great hill and coastal walking, and boat trips nearby, the cottage is an ideal wildlife and birdwatcher's retreat.

The elusive corncrake inhabits a number of crofting meadows nearby, and a sighting of the rare merlin is possible.

Along the seashore and lochs, otters and seals patrol the sheltered bays.

Seabirds including diving gannets, cormorants, guillemots and puffins abound.

A stay at Ridge End Cottage promises to be a memorable holiday indeed.

About the location

CONISTA

Staffin 6 miles; Uig 10 miles; Portree 25 miles.

Comprising of a few, traditionally whitewashed cottages, the scattered crofting township of Conista is situated within the area known as Duntulm, on the Trotternish Peninsula in the far north of the Isle of Skye. Duntulm is named after a steep rocky headland where the ruins of Duntulm Castle can be clearly seen. Conista is 10 miles from the village of Uig - the gateway port to the Outer Hebrides - and 6 miles from the village of Staffin. Both Staffin and Uig offer a small range of shops and local amenities. Trotternish is the northern peninsula of Skye, dominated by the Trotternish Ridge ranging from the imposing monolith of the 'Old Man of Storr' to the geological phenomenon that is the Quirang. The area offers excellent walking country, boasting breathtaking views including the Kilt Rock viewpoint, to the south of Staffin, with its dramatic waterfall. Many seabirds use the steep cliffs here in early summer, including the Fulmar, often seen circling the cliff tops at eye level. A fantastic location for exploring this mystical Isle.
