    “Beautiful location, cosy cottage.”
    We enjoyed a 2 week stay here. The cottage has an amazing view of the Quiraing ridge and the beach. An easy 10-15 minute walk to the beach nearby, or a good walk down to the pier. The cottage was clean, tidy and suited all our needs. The owner and housekeeper were great at making sure we had all we needed. Shops nearby are limited and expensive.

Had a fabulous stay here and would highly recommend to anyone looking to get away from it all. No wifi, and wifi is limited on the island, but detoxing is good every now and again!

The property

Staffin 1 mile.

This pretty detached, whitewashed stone cottage is in a private, elevated setting, one mile from the village of Staffin, on the Isle of Skye.

Boasting breathtaking sea and mountain views, this lovely single-storey cottage is situated within walking distance of village shops, a sandy beach and a community centre with a licensed restaurant.

This cosy cottage is ideal for a small family or group of friends who want to soak up the wonderful views from their own wee cottage, as well as being close to some exceptional mountain walks.

Amber's Cottage has two bedrooms, a shower room and a comfortable sitting room with an electric stove-effect fire, along with a spacious fitted kitchen/diner and a large porch, where you can store walking boots and coats after a day out and about exploring this wonderful island.

The impressive Quiraing Mountains form a dramatic backdrop to the village of Staffin, where you can spot eagles soaring overhead.

Just a short walk from the cottage takes you down to the shoreline and the sandy beach, from where will see some remarkable footprints left by dinosaurs that walked across the sand here some 165 million years ago!

The Isle of Skye has so much to offer visitors and the capital town of Portree provides a great selection of lively pubs, shops and restaurants.

The world famous Dunvegan Castle is also well worth a visit, as is Skye's only Distillery at Talisker.

For the wildlife spotter, whether on land, in the sea or in the air, there's never a dull moment with eagles, whales, deer and otters to spot in the area.

Your charming cottage is a welcome base after a day’s walking or sightseeing.
