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.
