    “Stunning location for a holiday house, the view from the living room was incredible.”

    A few negatives which did detract from the overall experience.

    A few negatives which did detract from the overall experience. No hot water in ensuite shower. New mattress needed in ensuite bedroom Threadbare towels. Nonetheless we would not hesitate to return and would be happy to pay a bit more to remedy the negatives.

The property

A lovely detached cottage, occupying a stunning elevated location, with an array of wildlife, and uninterrupted, beautiful views of the Isle of Skye, in the picturesque village of Glenelg on the fabulous west coast of the Scottish Highlands.

From its private hillside situation, this Highland cottage boasts breathtaking, uninterrupted views across the Sound of Sleat to the Isle of Skye, and views to the smaller islands of Rhum and Eigg.

Very well-appointed throughout, this Glenelg cottage would be ideal for a family group or group of friends who will enjoy this area and all that it has to offer.

There are three well-presented bedrooms in this Glenelg cottage, and a very comfortable sitting room with a dining area with welcoming multi fuel stove and fabulous views from the windows.

Next door is the very well-equipped kitchen where you can enjoy cooking some tasty meals.

The large, private and enclosed gardens to the front and rear are the perfect place for relaxing or dining alfresco, and just a short walk away is Glenelg Inn, a traditional inn with cosy character, lively music nights and excellent local cuisine, so there is no need to cook every night.

The village has a very well-stocked local shop too.

Of course, the community-owned ferry runs regularly in the summer months, sailing across the Sound of Sleat to Skye and is a most pleasant alternative to using the Skye Bridge, which is located just 25 miles away in the bigger village of Kyle of Lochalsh.

There is so much for wildlife enthusiasts to enjoy in this beautiful part of the country with sea eagles, otters and seals seen regularly.

This Glenelg cottage will delight visitors of all ages, who are sure enjoy a wonderful Highland holiday.

About the location


Shiel Bridge 9 miles.

Just ten miles from the main route to the Isle of Skye, the small coastal village of Glenelg lies on the shores of the Sound of Sleat, surrounded by scenery deemed magnificent even by West Highland standards. The glen has preserved its unspoilt beauty and sense of isolation, yet remains within easy reach of the more well-known centres of attraction in the area. Overlooking the Isle of Skye, it is situated on the route once used by drovers from Skye to get their cattle to the mainland, crossing over the narrow Kyle Rhea straits. A couple of miles from the village on the Arnisdale road you will find Sandaig bay, named "Camusfearna" by Gavin Maxwell in his novel Ring of Bright Water, and where there is a cairn for his beloved otter Edal. Glenelg also has the best preserved Pictish Brochs on mainland Scotland. The ruins of Bernera Barracks, an 18th Century garrison for English government troops, still stand next to the village.
