    Farmhouse cottage was true to its description and online photos. The accommodation was good, kitchen was adequate with enough crockery and cooking implements to meet our needs and a very welcome Welcome Basket containing local beer, sparkling wine and biscuits with milk in the fridge, coffee and tea, which is what you need after hours travelling. The outside space was rustic with large shrubs and a path through to a secret garden alongside a small beck, lovely. Being positioned near to the coast path and within walking distance of Quaraing walks, whilst being just off the 'main' route around the north of Skye, meant options were available to match weather conditions, which being Scotland, were varied. Better known or advertised, places seemed busy with only limited roadside parking mainly, but it was easy to get away and find less well populated spots of equal interest and beauty. Skye life museum well worth a visit, reasonable prices too, Claigan white beach, Faerie Glen and Quaraing also lovely. Morag was very friendly, met her in her shop which is also worth a visit for some memorable artwork and local crafts and is above a bakery and cafe if sustenance is required.

The property

Staffin 4 miles.

Nestled between the coast and dramatic cliffs of the Quiraing in its own wooded grounds is this historic 18th century semi-detached stone cottage.

Full of period charm, the cottage is situated next to the owner’s home in the peaceful hamlet of Flodigarry, famous for its association with Flora MacDonald, on the Island of Skye.

The cottage is situated on the north eastern coast and is an ideal base for families or couples to enjoy the great outdoors and the dramatic scenery.

From the front door you enter a small entrance hall which leads to the well-equipped kitchen and then through into the large combined living/dining area.

There is a table and chairs together with comfortable seating and a multi-fuel stove set in a lovely stone inglenook fireplace.

There is also a handy utility room where the washing machine is situated.

Upstairs there are two charming bedrooms, both of which have Velux windows and sloping ceilings.

The accommodation is complete with a family bathroom.

Outside, you have access to a portion of the owners' two acres of woodland garden, complete with stream and seating area perfect for relaxing and planning your next day's adventures.

At the bottom of the garden a well-surfaced coastal path leads down to the shoreline and one of the best beaches for fossil hunting.

A pub and restaurant is also a 10 minutes stroll from the cottage along this coastal path.

Further afield is the town of Portree, which is in a central location on the Isle of Skye, and you can explore and enjoy the marvellous scenery, together with the abundance of wildlife.

Be sure to visit the world-famous Dunvegan Castle and the coral beaches.

After a day touring, walking or fishing you can return to your comfortable cottage and relax.
