    So much thought has gone into making it welcoming for guests. We love the location. Rural but within a short drive to Uig. We will be coming back again and again hopefully.

  • "Kathryn and I would like to express our gratitude to Pat Beaton, for the use of her cottage Bothan Aonghais for Kathryn's 50th birthday celebration."

    It is an extremely tranquil cottage, with 3/5 windows facing out to sea. The surrounding landscape is very rugged, verging on quite barren in parts and the weather can be somewhat extreme to say the least. We were hit by gale force winds from the Sunday through to the Tuesday morning which, at it's height, woke me by shaking the whole house, which is some going to say the walls must be about 2ft thick. I thought the roof was going to come off and we were going to wake up in Kansas. We don't really bother with TV but when we decided to try for Netflix, I found that despite it being a smart TV we weren't getting any program listings for that or YouTube. I was really pleased that I'd thought on and taken my laptop with me. Kind Regards Mrs. B. J.S. & K.T.

    Although remote there are a lot of other cottages nearby. Very comfortable bed and pillows. Nice welcome pack from the owner and she was there tomshow me round. She also came over to help me get the cooker to work! I would go back again earlier in the year as the weather was not good when I was there.

    Pat made us feel very much at home. The cottage is well equipped and beautifully decorated with nice little things to look at. The bed is comfortable and the view out of bed amazing. The most astonishing fact for us was this: you go outside and you hear nothing!! We really enjoyed the tranquillity of this beautiful location, the stunning views and lovely sunsets. We also enjoyed the great Isle of Skye. A wonderful place to be, lots of landscape to enjoy and walks to do.

  • "The Bothan Aonghais was a truly fantastic place to stay."

    We wanted a hideaway and were not disappointed. No mobile coverage for us but a plethora of books, games, magazines, CDs, DVDs and access to Netflix. The 'neighbours' were so friendly. The local church opened the door to so many welcomes. The proximity to the beach and local scenic features meant we had so much to vary our daily routine. We found peace, tranquility and a wonderful owner who went that extra mile to make our stay comfortable and so so enjoyable. We found the Bothan so clean, tidy and kept in a warming decor to make those winter nights just the perfect hideaway.

    So tastefully furnished and equipped. It lacked nothing. There were lovely goodies left for our arrival and Pat called to see that we had everything.Having restricted mobility I was so pleased to see a fixed fold up chair and a grab rail in the shower which made my stay so much easier. The bed was very comfortable and lying on it you have a lovely view of the sea and the Hebrides. The views all round the cottage are beautiful. There is a wood burner in the living room already laid and ready to light if needed but we were warm and cosy just with the heating. Lovely and peaceful and quiet just what you need for a relaxing break. I cannot recommend this cottage enough.

  • "This is an absolutely beautiful cottage."

    It was kept impeccably clean, and is by far the best stocked holiday cottage I have ever been to. The log fire, with all of the wood and kindling provided, made the stormy nights in the cottage absolutely perfect. The views from the window of the sea are stunning, and on good days you can see other islands in the distance. This cottage is remote enough to feel like you can really get away from everything, yet it's only a short 20 minute drive to Uig (where there's a harbour to hop across to Isle of Harris). I can't fault Pat at all for her kind hospitality. Instructions for arriving at the property were great, and she popped by to say hello one morning and gave us fantastic advice on seeing things around the island. Pat also provides a fantastic folder and a basket full of books and information about Skye. There are great walks that you can do near by, and even though you're in the north of the island, it's only a 1.5 hour drive to the south where the incredible Fairy Pools are. I cannot recommend this cottage enough, and we already have plans to return.

    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 northern tip of Skye - we ended up having two holidays in one!

  • "This is a 5*+ holiday cottage."

    The building itself has been extended and refurbished to an extremely high standard, something which is obvious as soon as you enter. Also, the owner, Pat, has equipped the property with 'everything' and when I say everything I do mean it! We have stayed in a great many self catering properties and this one is far and away the best equipped (and stocked with essentials) of any we have stayed in. Finally, the pictures on the website don't do the view from the kitchen window justice. To stand at the sink and watch the water, the weather and the clouds (not to mention the ferry scuttling back and forth from Uig) is something that few properties can match. We had a brilliant time here and have no hesitation in recommending the property to couples who like remote living in a beautiful setting.

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 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.
