  • “The photos on the website do not do ...”

    The photos on the website do not do justice to the place - it is more beautiful and more spatious than we first thought based on the photos. And the VIEWS! Magnificent! What a perfect holiday and a belated honeymoon we had, with such a wonderful welcome from Pat. We may have been the first Finns there, but I am guessing not the last! We enjoyed the peace and quiet a great deal. And yes, the hot weather made it even more perfect, the entire week over 25 degrees Celcius and sunny, even in this ...

And yes, the hot weather made it even more perfect, the entire week over 25 degrees Celcius and sunny, even in this northern tip of Skye - we ended up having two holidays in one!

The property

Uig 6 miles.

A pretty whitewashed stone cottage which is situated near the village of Uig.

Bothan Aonghais (Angus's Cottage in Gaelic) is ideal for a couple who appreciate the comfort and tasteful decor of this traditional highland home.

The cottage has been refurbished to a very high standard offering smart and cosy accommodation.

The sitting room has a welcoming woodburning stove, great for those cosy nights in.

The bedroom oozes style and comfort with the kitchen and dining area being well-equipped for all those budding chefs.

From all the windows there are uninterrupted views to the sea with the Outer Hebrides clearly visible in the distance.

The cottage is privately situated and the garden area to the front is enclosed by a stone dyke wall adding to the atmosphere of bygone days.

A large raised deck at the front of the cottage is a perfect place for relaxation whilst listening to the birds and soaking up the surrounding, wonderful views.

Leaving Bothan Aonghais will be difficult but Skye is a wonderful island to explore with a rugged dramatic coastline and scenery difficult to beat.

Why not do the circular tour turning left and following the Trotternish Peninsula, passing the stunning Quirang and onto the iconic Old Man of Storr, with its wonderful pathway up to the pinnacle.

Less than an hour away is the capital town of Portree, where you can enjoy a little shopping and a wander around the pretty harbour.

From here you can journey on and take in Dunvegan with it world famous Castle and Coral Beaches.

Skye has much to offer and this fabulous gem of a cottage, hidden quietly away from it all, will make for the perfect holiday.

About the location

UIG

Portree 14 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 ballistic cliffs, the bay is one of the most beautiful in Skye, and is home to the ferry crossing to the Western Isles. 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.
