    “Roddy's Cottage is a place to " coorie in " and experience the stunning location and life in Glenelg.”

    The owners are so kind and welcoming. The views from the cottage over too Skye are truly beautiful. The trip on the wee Glenelg Ferry to Skye is amazing and we loved the two Collies onboard who belong to the Ferry men and bring you sticks! The Otter Hide and RSPB Hide across at Kylerhea are brilliant and Cameron the RSPB Warden from Glenelg is full of information and has a collie too!! Walking and hiking is brilliant in this area.

    The owners are so kind and welcoming. The views from the cottage over too Skye are truly beautiful. The trip on the wee Glenelg Ferry to Skye is amazing and we loved the two Collies onboard who belong to the Ferry men and bring you sticks! The Otter Hide and RSPB Hide across at Kylerhea are brilliant and Cameron the RSPB Warden from Glenelg is full of information and has a collie too!! Walking and hiking is brilliant in this area. We walked from cottage to Sandaig to see where Gavin Maxwell lived with his otters - very special. The Glenelg Inn is great to meet locals. Staff and owner of Inn were lovely. Adored the log fire! Meals very good too! Local produce. Scottish Band "Tweed" played one evening - good fun. Roddy's Cottage is a cozy cottage with character - a place to truly escape from busy living. The sounds of seabirds, the cuckoo, the sheep and lambs, the water - perfect. The bluebells and wild Iris were so beautiful amongst the Ferns in the woods and sides of the wee single track roads. Plockton and Lochcarron are lovely places to experience in this area too. If you want to slow down and breathe clear beautiful air and enjoy the beauty of Glenelg and views of Skye this is the place to go!! Amazing.

The cottage

An enchanting single-storey detached cottage, which has belonged to the family of the owners for generations, nestling by the bay in Glenelg, ten miles from the main route to the Isle of Skye.

Lovingly restored and renovated, Roddy's Cottage invites all who cross the threshold to unwind, relax and absorb the stunning scenery.

This simple Scotland cottage offers welcoming accommodation with an open fire and stunning uninterrupted views over the Sound of Sleat.

Hills and climbs are within striking distance, while those who take to the sea can observe the bird life - cormorant, heron and eagles, and even the wonders of the deep where whales, dolphins and porpoises follow their migratory routes.

With the area's ancient brochs and wonderful small traditional car ferry to Skye, this Glenelg cottage offers easy access to excellent walking, climbing and a lively pub.

About the location

GLENELG

Shiel Bridge 9 miles.

Just ten miles from the main route to the Isle of Skye, the small coastal village of Glenelg lies on the shores of the Sound of Sleat, surrounded by scenery deemed magnificent even by West Highland standards. The glen has preserved its unspoilt beauty and sense of isolation, yet remains within easy reach of the more well-known centres of attraction in the area. Overlooking the Isle of Skye, it is situated on the route once used by drovers from Skye to get their cattle to the mainland, crossing over the narrow Kyle Rhea straits. A couple of miles from the village on the Arnisdale road you will find Sandaig bay, named "Camusfearna" by Gavin Maxwell in his novel Ring of Bright Water, and where there is a cairn for his beloved otter Edal. Glenelg also has the best preserved Pictish Brochs on mainland Scotland. The ruins of Bernera Barracks, an 18th Century garrison for English government troops, still stand next to the village.
