    “Beautiful isolation!”

    Elgol is a fantastic place with amazing views and surprising wildlife. The weather (as you might expect) can change from minute to minute and usually comes with a healthy breeze. I travelled to Askival with a mixed party of eight. We had teenagers, young people and parents. The house itself is just perfect. Spacious, modern, warm and brilliantly equipped. It's decorated beautifully and has lovely features. The owners have a great eye for style and its a fantastic place to stay. I can't think of ...

    Elgol is a fantastic place with amazing views and surprising wildlife. The weather (as you might expect) can change from minute to minute and usually comes with a healthy breeze. I travelled to Askival with a mixed party of eight. We had teenagers, young people and parents. The house itself is just perfect. Spacious, modern, warm and brilliantly equipped. It's decorated beautifully and has lovely features. The owners have a great eye for style and its a fantastic place to stay. I can't think of anything that could be improved and we all loved it from the moment we arrived. Excellent value for money and even better than it looks in the pictures. Elgol is the quieter part of the island and if you want hustle and bustle this is NOT the place for you. The best words to describe the area are wild and remote but also spectacular and amazing. It takes around half an hour to drive from the last real 'town' area down a one car wide road to get to Askival but it's always an eventful journey peppered with sheep, highland cattle and (if you are lucky - and you probably will be) even the odd stag! If you love the outdoors and want a base for great walks; boat trips to even more remote islands; Lochs; access to mountains and peaceful isolation this is the place to go.

The property

A stunning, detached cottage situated in the village of Elgol, in a fabulously elevated location, in the southeast corner of the beautiful Isle of Skye.

Built to take absolute advantage of this desirable location, the view from this Elgol cottage is very impressive indeed, looking out over the sea to the Inner Hebrides.

Comfortably-appointed throughout, providing bright and contemporary accommodation, this Skye cottage would be ideal for a family group, or group of friends, who wish to enjoy time together in this magical area of Scotland.

This Skye cottage is set over two floors with two spacious bedrooms downstairs benefiting from en-suite facilities, one of which also boasts a walk-in wardrobe.

On the first floor is a further king-size double with the bonus of an en-suite shower room, along with Velux windows from which sea and mountain views can be seen.

There is so much space, with the cottage also offering a separate shower room, and a snug with a double sofa bed!

On the ground floor level of this Skye cottage, there is a stylish kitchen, with a breakfast bar, well-equipped and perfect for preparing delicious home-cooked meals.

Steps lead up to a dining room and stairs to the snug.

The raised floor sitting room exudes comfort and style with its woodburning stove, high beamed ceiling, tall windows, and French doors leading to the balcony.

Outside, the large balcony is a simply perfect spot to sit, relax and view the local wildlife whilst savouring this magnificent location.

With just a short stroll down to the busy harbour, you can easily enjoy boat trips to the Islands of Canna, Rhum, Eigg and Soay, while trips to Loch Coruisk, in the heart of the Cuillins, are very popular, with regular sightings of whales, dolphins, basking sharks and puffins along the way!

The Isle of Skye is a breathtaking island, and a trip to Talisker Distillery and its great visitor centre is a must to taste the local whiskey.

With so much to see and do from this wonderful Elgol cottage, you will be sure of an unforgettable holiday.

About the location

ELGOL

Broadford 15 miles.

The crofting community of Elgol sits at the tip of the Strathaird Peninsula, in southern Skye, at the end of a single track road running from the village of Broadford. Passing through the picturesque village of Torrin, round the head of Loch Slapin with the celebrated Bla Bheinn mountain on the right, the road descends into Elgol, with breathtaking views overlooking the small islands of Rhum, Eigg, Canna and Soay. Several pleasure crafts operate from the pier, and it is well worth a trip to the famous Loch Coruisk in the heart of the Cuillin, passing a seal colony en route. Experienced hill walkers and climbers can set out from here into the surrounding mountains or have a picnic by the loch and return by the same boat 1.5 hours later. Elgol has a small community shop and post office, and petrol is available in Broadford, which is 15 miles from Elgol and has a variety of pubs/bars, restaurants and shops including a Post Office and a petrol station.
