  • “Perfect accommodation in almost every way”
    We stayed here in March of this year with my fiancé, mother in law and pup. It was such a beautiful and comfortable home to stay in truly a home away from home. It was the perfect spot for our trip to celebrate my mother in laws 60th and see all the sites. The whole house was gorgeously decorated. The only thing I found uncomfortable was the bed we had as it was a spring mattress but I am known in family as the princess and the pea so it can be hard to please me when it comes to beds.

    We stayed here in March of this year with my fiancé, mother in law and pup. It was such a beautiful and comfortable home to stay in truly a home away from home. It was the perfect spot for our trip to celebrate my mother in laws 60th and see all the sites. The whole house was gorgeously decorated. The only thing I found uncomfortable was the bed we had as it was a spring mattress but I am known in family as the princess and the pea so it can be hard to please me when it comes to beds. Apart from that we had such a wonderful stay, having the lovely garden for our pup to be able to play in and a comfortable living room to chill out in at the end of the night. We will definitely be back and hopefully soon. Thank you to the wonderful owners they were great and answered any questions we had.

The property

Portree 12 miles.

Ideally located in central Skye, this spacious bright cottage has lovely views and stands in a pretty private garden area with its own stream flowing through.

This cottage is ideal for a family or group of friends who will appreciate the space and comfort in this cottage.

There are four bedrooms offering great flexibility for six people and the generously proportioned sitting room is just perfect for relaxing in at the end of a busy day.

A modern fitted kitchen with dining area means that preparing and enjoying meals together is easy and, on a pleasant evening, guests can enjoy a pre-dinner drink in the front garden whilst soaking up the view.

Sconser is the ferry terminal that links Skye to the Island of Raasay and from this cottage guests can watch the little ferry as it journeys across the Inner Sound between the islands ferrying cars and foot passengers.

For golfers, this location is ideal as Skye's only golf course is located a short walk away and the pretty 9-hole course borders the coast and offers fabulous views.

Of course, taking the ferry on the 20 minute crossing to Raasay is a lovely trip and as the ferry is on your doorstep it has to be experienced!

The island itself is rich in places of interest, and the world-famous Dunvegan Castle with its stunning gardens makes a great day out.

Why not venture down into south Skye, known as the Garden of Skye due to its fertile land and abundance of flowers, and here you can visit the ruins of Armadale Castle and enjoy the lovely tea rooms whilst there?

Skye has a rugged coastline and there is wildlife to be seen around every corner, be it eagles in the air or dolphins and otters in the sea.

The magical beauty of the island is undeniable and your lovely centrally placed cottage will be a most welcome home-from-home.

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. Dunvegan Castle and the Talisker Distillery Visitor Centre are just two more reasons to visit this magical isle.
