    “This was one of the best holidays ...”

    This was one of the best holidays we have ever had! We expected grey skies and rain but were very lucky that the sun shone everyday. The Isle Of Skye is beautiful and lived up to all our expectations as we toured around enjoying all the places on our itinerary. (The Skye Museum of Island Life in Kilmuir is well worth the journey north.) Being April meant that the roads were quiet but watch out for those potholes! ...

    This was one of the best holidays we have ever had! We expected grey skies and rain but were very lucky that the sun shone everyday. The Isle Of Skye is beautiful and lived up to all our expectations as we toured around enjoying all the places on our itinerary. (The Skye Museum of Island Life in Kilmuir is well worth the journey north.) Being April meant that the roads were quiet but watch out for those potholes! The cottage was absolutely brilliant! Beautifully located with lochs front and back, very well maintained and clean, and short of nothing that one would need, it totally enhanced our holiday. Our evenings at the cottage were a very pleasant part of our stay. Sitting in the wood panelled lounge enjoying a wine or a whisky and reflecting on the day contributed perfectly to the mindfulness we were seeking. Shelves of books and nice art on the walls added to the ambience of this room. It is a long drive from our Manchester home to this cottage, and they say that you should never go back, but we are already planning our return! Many thanks to owner Hazel and custodian Kim.

The property

Portree 8 miles.

A charming traditional stone cottage with stunning loch and mountain views, situated in a quiet and friendly crofting community.

This cottage has a mature and pretty garden and would suit a family or small group of friends who want to explore this magical island, whilst enjoying the peace, tranquillity and diverse wildlife the Isle of Skye has to offer.

This spacious cottage is very well equipped and still retains some lovely original features, whilst also offering guests the convenience of modern additions such as WiFi.

The cottage has two cosy bedrooms with sloping ceilings and original wood-lined walls, perfect for a comfy night's sleep after a busy day exploring the area.

A warm and welcoming sitting room offers guests a vast selection of books and a comfy space to read them in.

The kitchen and dining area are spacious and well-equipped and the picture window provides stunning views out over the loch to the mountains beyond.

This Isle of Skye cottage also benefits from a wooden summerhouse in the garden, a beautiful place to sit and read whilst gazing out across the loch and perhaps sipping a pre-dinner drink.

The vibrant town of Portree is just 8 miles away and offers guests a choice of shops, restaurants and lively pubs.

A short drive will bring guests to the famous village of Dunvegan with its stunning castle, well worth a visit whilst discovering the area.

The Isle of Skye has something for everyone and the scenery is breathtaking whether viewed on foot, by bike, car or sea!

This Portree cottage is the perfect setting for a holiday to this beautiful island at any time of year.

About the location

PORTREE

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.
