Skye is a fascinating place to holiday, so why not make it unforgettable by staying in one of our two beautifully appointed shepherd huts? Located on the croft in Heaste, Isle of Skye, the huts are very special small space retreats, and unique to the area.

I have 2 huts, Bothan Beileag and Bothan Buidheag, each sleep 2 guests. All linen is provided.

Retreat ~ Refresh ~ Renew...

Despite being small, you will find everything you might need in your wee cosy hut, and each bespoke hut has been finished to the highest standard. Each hut has a wood-burning stove, electricity, water, double bed, tea- and coffee-making, wifi at the house, and spectacular views in all directions. The toilet and shower room, along with washing and drying facilities are to be found around 50 m away from your hut, in the hallway of our house. All towels, bathrobes and linen is provided.

Just ask, whether you find you have forgotten your toothbrush, or need advise to plan the next stage of your holiday. We can also recommend some beautiful and intriguing places to visit, as well as the best-known tourist attractions.

The area also has a good selection of both relaxed local eateries and more formal award-winning restaurants. A Hospital, Doctors' Surgery, Chemist, Bank, Supermarket and Petrol Station are amongst the usual amenities to be found in Broadford (8 km).

A car is essential, there is no public transport in Heaste.

The Hebrides region

The Isle of Skye lies close to the north-west coast of the Scottish Highlands. It is the largest and the furthest north of the islands in the Inner Hebrides The name 'Skye' is probably from the Norse words Ski (cloud) and Ey (island). In Gaelic it is normally referred to as An t-Eilean Sgitheanach, which translates as The Winged Isle. It gets this name from the wing-like shape formed by the two northern peninsulas of Waternish and Trotternish. The island is marked on old Roman maps as "Scitis". It is sometimes referred to in English as The Misty Isle (in Gaelic - Eilean a' Cheo). That one seems a wee bit too romantic for my taste. And there's more…but that's enough to confuse anyone already.

Skye is a romantic place though. The history, the legends, the scenery, the weather, the music and the poetry combine to produce something very special indeed. It is that peculiar magic that draws visitors to the island from all around the world, and makes it Scotland's biggest tourist destination after Edinburgh. It has been said that Skye is conclusive proof that, sometimes, God was just showing off.

Skye is about 50 miles from north to south, and around 25 miles from west to east at its widest. The coastline is very irregular and indented by sea lochs. In all it is some 400 miles long – and I can't think of a single mile of those 400 that I would class as dull. The coast is littered with bays, sea arches, stacks, caves, massive cliffs, waterfalls, fossils, tidal islands – a lifetime's worth of exploration and discovery.

This dramatic coastline surrounds some of the most exceptional and varied scenery to be found anywhere. The main mountain range, the Cuillin, is often said to be the home of the only true mountains in Britain. Certainly there is nowhere in the country to compare with the magnificent, dramatic and challenging peaks and ridges of the Cuillin.

Nearby, the rounded granite lumps of the Red Hills are less savage, but still offer stunning views - both of them, and off them.

In the north-east is the Trotternish Peninsula, with the world famous ridge or escarpment that forms its backbone. The ridge rises to its highest point at the summit of the Storr, above the tortured landslip topography that includes the iconic pinnacle - The Old Man of Storr. The ridge is home also to the Quiraing, another landslip area of pinnacles and gullies, this time below the summit of Meal na Suiramach.
