A lovely semi-detached, single-storey cottage situated in a small residential development, within the friendly highland village of Staffin on the Isle of Skye.
Offering warm and welcoming accommodation, Bethany Cottage is ideal for a family or group of friends who will appreciate the rugged unspoilt beauty of this magical island.
The accommodation is spacious and bright with a cosy sitting room with a warming open fire, and a well-equipped dining kitchen, from which views across to the Quiraing mountain range can be enjoyed.
This cosy holiday home also has two generously proportioned bedrooms and a bathroom.
Outside, there’s a small side garden, from where you can admire those mountain views and there’s also the convenience of off road parking for two cars.
From your holiday home you can stroll to the lively community centre named Columba 1400, where a snack or full meal can be enjoyed along with a glass of local beer.
The community centre also has good WiFi facilities along with local information and history.
Also within walking distance is a shop, and just a ten-minute walk away is a fabulous beach, where dinosaur footprints have been found.
The Quiraing mountain range provides excellent walking opportunities and for the experienced walker, tackling part of the Trotternish Ridge will be a most exhilarating experience.
Skye is an island with much to offer visitors of all ages and the wildlife is exceptional.
Sea eagles can be seen soaring overhead and from the rugged coastline, dolphins, otters and whales are common sights.
Portree is a short drive away and boat trips out to the smaller islands can be taken weather permitting.
This delightful cottage is a great base for an absolutely unforgettable holiday on the Isle of Skye!
