    “Wonderful homely cottage in a quiet location.”


The property

Portree 7 miles.

This detached 100 year old traditional croft house is set in front of a working croft amongst sheep grazing fields in the crofting village of Gedintailor, seven miles from Portree.

The cottage has stunning views over the Narrows of Raasay and towards the Isle of Raasay and is an ideal base for those looking to get away from it all.

The cottage has two bedrooms on the first floor, a double and a twin, both of which have sloping ceilings to the sides.

The rest of the accommodation is spread across the ground floor and includes a kitchen with a dining area with a multi fuel stove.

The sitting room has an open fire and is a lovely cosy spot to curl up and relax in the evenings.

Outside, the garden is a sheltered spot to enjoy barbecues or your morning cup of coffee.

Why not sit a moment and enjoy the views out to the Scottish mainland?

You are just a ten minute walk from the sandy beach at Braes and nearby Portree is the main town on the Isle of Skye.

The town is set around a busy harbour and is a popular tourist destination with a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants.

Boat trips are available to see a different view of the island and pony-trekking is also an option.

Portree is also home to the award-winning Aros Centre with a theatre, film showings and concerts.

Half of 6 is a fantastic base for exploring the whole island.

About the location


Fort William 108 miles; Inverness 113 miles.

Set round its natural harbour on the stunning and tranquil Isle of Skye, charming Portree boasts an excellent range of shops, hotels and restaurants. Cultural attractions are plentiful; the Aros Centre is well worth a visit with its programme of concerts, theatre and cinema. Sports enthusiasts are also well catered for, with sea kayaking, rock-climbing and a good choice of well-marked walks. The rock formations are particularly spectacular; Trotternish Ridge stretches for 31km of continuous cliffs, with many fantastic rock forms and pinnacles. Dunvegan Castle and the Talisker Distillery Visitor Centre are just two more reasons to visit this magical isle.
