  • “I really enjoyed my stay at Seadrift Cottage and I was warmly welcomed by Liz who gave me some information about the cottage, the area and the local facilities.”

    ...

    With that huge picture window in the front room affording the sweeping view over the bay, it provides an opportunity to watch the Black Guillemots and Skuas wheelling and diving above the sea directly in front of the cottage. Everything you think you'll need is provided in the cottage and the internet speed is fast and consistent. Bring your Firestick TV dongle etc and you'll be sorted for evening entertainment. It's ideally placed to visit some fantastic scenery on the island and you won't be disappointed. Make sure you bring a camera of some kind, as you'll most certainly want to document your visit. There's a really well stocked shop a short distance south and what surprised me was that the fuel cost to fill up my car on the island was only a few pennies per litre more than I pay at home. Every corner you go round in your car will give you another wonderful view and I defy anyone to go away from the island without feeling relaxed and having a huge grin on their face. I visit Scotland on a regular basis and I have to say that Skye has become my new favourite, I hope to return as regularly as possible.

The property

This immaculately-presented detached cottage situated within the grounds of the owner's home occupies a superb location in the friendly highland village of Staffin, on the stunning Isle of Skye.

Boasting breathtaking sea and mountain views, with sights reaching to mainland Scotland, this Staffin cottage is ideal for those who desire the peace and tranquillity that this coastal location affords.

The upper floor of this Isle of Skye cottage offers a flexible sleeping space with a super king-size convertible bed, ideal for a couple or two friends.

The open plan living space on the ground floor offers a contemporary fitted kitchen, a dining area and a comfortable sitting area with a big picture window allowing stunning views towards the majestic Quiraing mountain range, across the bay and out to sea.

A large lawned garden encloses this Skye cottage, and to the side is a private seating area, a great spot for a morning coffee and perhaps with a pair of binoculars for some eagle spotting.

For walkers, the Quiraing provides dramatic scenery and well-defined pathways, leading direct from the doorstep of your Isle of Skye cottage.

The sandy beach, with its history of dinosaurs, is just a short walk away, and wildlife spotters will most certainly enjoy the seals, otters and seabirds that dwell in this unspoilt area.

Staffin is an excellent location for touring the island, with the pretty capital town of Portree just a short drive away.

With the outstanding views, the nearby beach and the complete comfort of this Staffin cottage, guests are assured of an unforgettable holiday here on the beautiful Isle of Skye.
