This Skye cottage is ideally located just 7 miles from the vibrant capital town of Portree and also 7 miles from the ferry port and pretty village of Uig.

From your Skye cottage follow the road around the top of the Trotternish Peninsula, passing through an array of pretty crofting townships and Staffin with its lovely sandy beach.
