The Hebrides region

Our beautiful house is situated on the northern coast of Skye, 30 minute drive from Portree. This is an outstanding location for bird and wildlife watching, painting, marine activities, including scuba diving and nearby boat trips and water sports.

If you have never been to the Isle of Skye, here is what you should expect…………….. hill walking, climbing, cycling, outdoor activities, painting beautiful landscapes and lazy days in a fantastic location (for those who wish to take it easy!).

Bornesketaig

Skye is renowned for its impressive mountains for all levels of walker and climber. Within a short drive from the house is the well known Quirang area where rocky outcrops provide a fantastic backdrop for any budding photographer. The local wildlife includes various species of whale, porpoise, and seals, sea eagles, hares, otters, plus many other exciting species such as the basking shark. This is the best location you could imagine for photography, drawing and painting, cycling, walking or just gazing at the views.

Close by you will find several restored Black Houses with their original thatched roofs and native Highland Cows.

In the village of Uig, 10 minute drive away, you will find the Isle of Skye Brewery, various local pubs where meals are served, petrol station and the ferry terminal to the Outer Hebrides.

You will find a swimming pool in Portree along with restaurants, pubs, cafes, fish & chip shop, chinese and Indian take-aways, jewellers, book shops, craft shops and all the other facilities you would expect in a large village.

Further a field, the Isle of Skye offers everything – art galleries, boat trips to Raasay and Rona, diving trips, glass bottom boat trips, guided walks, pony trekking at Suledale, the Talisker whisky Distillery, golf courses at Skeabost and Sconser. There are also many places to go wild fishing.

Take a look at our website www.westviewskye.co.uk for local visitor attractions, web addresses and other local information on walks and fishing in the area.

"Excellent accomodation and customer service"

What can we say other than we had a brilliant holiday here. The cottage was fantastic everything was clean, tidy and very spacious for me, jenny, Skye (our 21 week old daughter) and dog aika. The garden was like a small piece of heaven for the dog she loved it. The views from the cottage were stunning.
