About this location
The Hebrides region
Skye is an island of superlatives - amazing wildlife, superb scenery, wonderful food and great hospitality. See golden eagles and sea eagles, otters, seals, basking sharks, minke whales, dolphins and porpoises. In 2012 lucky visitors saw a leatherback turtle and orca whales. Deceptively large, you can whizz round the whole of the north of the island in a day but it's much better to take your time and explore each peninusala a day at a time. Every direction affords different scenery, wonderful galleries and coffee shops and activities from boat trips to hiking to land sailing and kayaking.
Broadford is a great base for visiting the whole of Skye and Lochalsh and is Skye's largest settlement after Portree. There are a range of great restaurants to choose from, a well stocked Co-Op and other shops to investigate. It is also a great base to explore as you can visit every part of Skye and back over the bridge to Lochalsh in day trips from the cottage.
If you are a keen hillwalker or munro bagger you can head over to Kintail, the Sheil Ridge or of course the Cuillins; if you prefer beaches wonderful Ashaig beach with its coral island and fossils is a couple of miles down the road; for gardens you can visit Clan Donald at Armadale, Dunvegan or Attadale near Lochcarron and you are spoilt for choice with boat trips, from Kyle of Lochalsh, Armadale and Elgol.
For fabulous food and drink there are anu number of superb restaurants, both on your doorstep and a short drive away and plenty of opportunities for discovering real ale and working your way down the whisky selection.
