    “A well equipped and comfortable cottage in a superb location overlooking the sea to the Hebrides.”

    We particularly liked the Aga which was easy to use and kept the kitchen warm and cosy at all times. The peninsula of Uig is the most beautiful of all the island, in my opinion. Went to the Old Man of Storr at 7am. Best time to see it, away from the crowds you have the place to yourself. Didn't see any large raptors but that was probably due to walking the hills and coastline most of the time and not taking time to sit and watch. Portree is a pleasant market town and I found the ...

    We particularly liked the Aga which was easy to use and kept the kitchen warm and cosy at all times. The peninsula of Uig is the most beautiful of all the island, in my opinion. Went to the Old Man of Storr at 7am. Best time to see it, away from the crowds you have the place to yourself. Didn't see any large raptors but that was probably due to walking the hills and coastline most of the time and not taking time to sit and watch. Portree is a pleasant market town and I found the islanders very friendly. Would very much like to visit again and would stay in the same cottage, if it was available. The journey by car took us over 9 hours each way but it was worth it for the stunning scenery.

The property

Uig 6 miles.

This charming crofter's cottage is located in the pretty crofting hamlet of Kilmuir on the north western edge of Skye, with exceptional views across The Minch, towards the Outer Hebrides.

This cottage is well-equipped, comfortable and is ideal for any group to embrace the splendour of Skye.

With enticing, panoramic views from each window on the first floor, guests will find two bedrooms and a bathroom.

The ground floor boasts a shower room, a pretty farmhouse-style kitchen with dining area and a relaxing sitting room with a woodburner ideal for cosy nights in.

A spacious garden lies to the front, a wonderful place to unwind and absorb the sights and the tranquil atmosphere after a hike along the coast.

Within easy walking distance is the Skye Museum of Island Life, with traditional thatched cottages and artefacts offering a taste of life for the crofters in bygone days.

The area is rich in wildlife and rare birds, including majestic golden eagles which regularly soar overhead.

This is a walker's delight, and as your cottage is ideally situated at the north end of the wild Trotternish Peninsula, close to the fabulous Quiraing, the sandy beach at Staffin and the Fairy Glen, there are plenty of options for exploring on foot.

There's so much to do and see on the enchanted Isle of Skye, so book this charming cottage, a wonderful base to return to at the end of each busy day.

About the location

UIG

Portree 15 miles.

The village of Uig (pronounced "Oo-ig"), at the northern tip of Skye, rests on the shores of Loch Snizort, Skye’s largest sea loch off the Atlantic. The village boasts two pubs, two shops, a hotel, a filling station and cafe, as well as two other businesses well-worth a visit. Uig Pottery sells a range of high quality pottery produced on-site, while the Skye Brewery sells its own superb real ales from the brewery shop. Sheltered by high cliffs, the bay is one of the most beautiful in Skye, and is home to the ferry terminal for the Outer Hebrides. Wildlife in the area includes golden eagles, sea eagles, pilot whales, seals and dolphins. The attractions of the Isle, including the main town of Portree, are all within easy reach of this tranquil base.

Note: Max 4 adults.
