Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
With lovely views looking right across to the Cuillin, this cottage has been totally transformed to provide cosy accommodation with every necessary modern convenience. There's no better way of experiencing a truly Highland lifestyle in the vicinity of such a peaceful and welcoming setting as this.
The Old Byre next door has been upgraded and converted and now provides additional accommodation for the cottage and an ideal private space. A small garden to the front makes a lovely picnic area and is a perfect space from which to fully appreciate the magnificent surrounding scenery.
In the house, the open plan ground floor comprises a spacious dining area with an extendable table which seats 6 people. The neat fitted kitchen has an electric cooker, washing machine/dryer and fridge/freezer, while the cosy sitting room, with its 2 settees and a television & DVD Player, is set out around an open fireplace. There is a sofa bed which can provide additional beds for two people.
On the upper floor there is a spacious shower room and two bedrooms, one double and one twin room. Located in the side garden is the Old Barn, now converted and providing a twin bedded room with en-suite shower room.
The Old Barn has an electric panel heater whilst the main cottage is heated by oil central heating. Please be aware that the mobile phone signal in the area is poor and therefore a payphone and internet has been installed in the house.

In an area surrounded by wildlife, there are ample opportunities for hill walking with the Red Hills in front of the house and Blaven behind. Also, the award winning “Bella Jane” operates from Elgol pier and, from here, you can travel into the heart of the Cuillin and see seals along the way.
The Hebrides/Skye region
The North West Highlands of Scotland holds some of the world's best scenery as well as hundreds of plant and animal species.
It also has a unique culture and although eveyone here now speaks English, the local language is the Gaelic (pronounced. Gaalik)
Broadford, Isle of Skye
It is almost impossible to spend a holiday on the island without visiting the small town of Broadford.
There is a good selection of interesting shops and museums as well as a bank, supermarket and 24 hour filling station.
Broadford bay boasts one of the finest sandy beaches on the island and you can take one of the boat trips which regularly leave from the pier.
When you visit Sleat, you will understand why this area of the island is called the garden of Skye. With its broad leafed trees and glorious flora this is a truly beautiful and verdant area.
The Clan Donald Centre is worth a visit and if you want to come 'Over the Sea to Skye' you can still do so on the Mallaig to Armadale Ferry.
