  • "What an outstanding cottage in the most fantastic location."

    Catriona, the cottage owner is always on hand to provide support, information and help. She even offered us a free nights complementary stay due to the poor weather. A true example of fantastic customer service and hosting! I would highly recommend staying at this cottage.

  • "Loved this cottage."

    It was exactly what we wanted, out of the way of the busy parts of Skye, but still close enough to see all the sights. The view from the cottage was great and the log fire in October was ideal. I also loved that they used eco-friendly cleaners and items around the cottage. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely be booking again when we are up there in future.

    It is full of everything you need and the owner was only a text away for info if you needed it. The place was immaculate and you could tell that it had been cleaned to within a inch of its life. You can tell the owners really have pride in the cottage. The scenery on Skye is jaw dropping, and the people were all welcoming. We have already booked for next year

    There was plenty of room and a good supply of towels etc. There is a wood burner with a starter pack of wood but the central heating was more than adequate without this. The property is at the North of the island, which was where we particularly wanted to stay, and is surrounded by beautiful views. Some might find it rather remote, as visiting other locations entails a longer journey.

  • "Ridge End Cottage is in a very special and magical corner of the Isle of Skye."

    While some travelers may not like the remoteness of this part of the island, we found it a perfect place to experience the mystical nature of this island. The cottage itself is extremely comfortable and has every amenity you could ever imagine needing on a holiday. But what's really special is that from every room there are views of the sea and of the Quiraing (there's also a footpath you can take to hike the Quiraing just up the hill from the cottage!) and your nearest neighbors are the McIntyre's sheep, whose soft bleeting will lull you to sleep. Peter and Catriona provided us with excellent information for making ourselves comfortable in their home and for exploring Skye. I highly recommend Ridge End Cottage and can't wait to return!

  • "A cosy, yet spacious, and well appointed cottage in a stunning and tranquil location."

    The owners put in many thoughtful touches, particularly for our late evening arrival. The views from the master bedroom are the best I have ever experienced! The only minor issue (which is so insignificant it's only worth mentioning as its the ONLY thing between this cottage and absolute perfection) is that the fixed shower head is not well aligned so that most of the water just goes straight across the cubicle and down the wall. That being said, we absolutely adored our stay here and miss it already. We'll definitely be coming back to Syke, and we'll be sure to try for this cottage again too!

Catriona and Peter also went the extra mile and came to our rescue one evening when the DVD player would no longer work bringing their own DVD player as a replacement. We could not ask for better customer service. The weather gods smiled on us and we had fine, unseasonably warm conditions to explore this stunning island. Thank you and we would highly recommend a stay at Ridge End Cottage to explore this beautiful part of Skye.

  • "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 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.

Mezzanine bedroom (big enough for double bed plus sofas!) above living room had superb views over the rural countryside, mountains in the distance. Two other large bedrooms (one double, other twin) and a modern bathroom. This is the perfect base to enjoy peace and tranquillity. Evening strolls at Duntulm castle ruins as the sun disappears, Uig coastal village for real ale and exploring the fairy glens, or hiking the magestic Storr are not to be missed. I wish I lived closer to this beautiful part of the country. Highly recommend a stay here.

    The Isle of Skye itself is simply stunning and there is so much to do, but you have to be prepared to drive (the island is much bigger than we thought), however driving is actually a pleasure. There is so much to recommend but we particularly liked the Museum of Island Life, The Old Man of Storr and the Fairy Pools. Word of warning though - watch out for the grumpy old Crofter if you go to the Cave of Gold; grumpy but good value.

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.

Please note that there is a pod near to this property that sleeps 2 (reference 1025275) so they can be booked together for added flexibility if required.

  • Winter
