"Lovely property and a beautiful location!"
Having sheep right outside the front yard was an unexpected (and wonderful) surprise <3
"A lovely week 21st to 28th October spent at Gramarye Cottage."
Our third year running on the Isle of Skye and our first stay at Gramarye Cottage. The location is superb and the cottage is excellent, so clean and well equipped we were short of nothing. Home from home and nicely decorated and laid out. Weather was unusually good for the time of year. Spotted a Sea Otter at close quarters on the rocks at the adjacent Braes Bay and the icing on the cake was watching two pairs of White Tailed Sea Eagles performing right in front of the cottage for 20 minutes.
Thank you so much for this lovely review. It is so kind of you to take the time to do this and is so appreciated. I am so glad you had good weather and some great wildlife spotting which is always so amazing. Thank you so much Property Owner

Boasting a truly unbeatable setting with breath-taking views across the sea to the Isle of Raasay in Peinachorrain (Peinchorran) near Portree on the Isle of Skye is Gramarye Cottage.
This delightful dwelling benefits from a welcoming interior adorned with character features including woodburning stoves and feature, exposed stone walls, two well-appointed bedrooms and a stunning setting overlooking the sea encapsulated by peace and tranquillity; a perfect choice for small families, friends or couples looking to explore the wonders of Skye.
Cross the threshold into your new home-from-home and head straight into the homely sitting room where the warmth of the woodburning stove greets you, unwind here in front of the TV before heading into the fully-equipped kitchen to rustle up a delicious meal to be enjoyed around the dining table.
On warmer evenings, dine alfresco at the picnic table; the perfect setting to raise a toast thanks to the mountains and sea creating a memorable backdrop, there’s even a toasty, indoor snug with woodburning stove so you can savour the views on colder nights.
When stars appear overhead, head back inside to wash off the day’s adventures in the ground-floor bathroom before sloping off to sleep in either the king-size or twin on the first floor.
If you can tear yourself away from this idyllic setting, take a drive into Portree, the island’s capital, where you can stock up on all of your self-catering essentials at local stores or enjoy a well-earned break from the kitchen with a delicious meal at Merchant Bar, Caberfeidh Bar and Restaurant or Antlers Bar and Grill.
Be sure to make the most of the coast by hiking along Braes Beach or head to Talisker Bay Beach to marvel at its impressive waterfall or appreciate the beauty and swells of the Atlantic.
Hidden gems are woven throughout the island, discover the Fairy Pools surrounded by blue and green waterfalls, reach the impressive summits of Bla Bheinn or Sgurr Alasdair or explore The Lump a wonderful headland with watch tower.
Guests can also take ferries across the charming islands surrounding Skye or to the mainland home to endless attractions.
All this and more awaits at Gramarye Cottage.
