Cottage | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Waterfall View provides the ideal retreat for relaxing and watching the ever changing vistas and is a super base for touring this mystical and historic island. Take a visit to Dunvegan Castle (the oldest inhabited castle in Scotland and seat of the Clan MacLeod) and a boat trip to see the seals basking on the rocks in Loch Dunvegan. The Glendale Toy Museum - a fascinating private collection of toys, is a favourite place to browse for children and adults alike.
Boat trips include a sea trip from Portree to see the varied sea and bird life including the sea eagles, glass-bottomed boat trips and a ferry trip to the Outer Isles of Lewis, Harris and Uist. No visit to the Isle of Skye is complete without a trip on the Bella Jane from Elgol to Scotland's most isolated Loch Coruisk.
The island boasts some wonderful restaurants, the world famous ‘Three Chimneys’ has held 3 red rosettes for 9 years and The Kinloch Lodge Hotel has been awarded Skye's first Michelin star.

The Hebrides/Skye region
Skye is the most important centre for Gaelic culture outside of the Western Isles, and almost half the population speak Gaelic fluently; the Gaelic College on Sleat (Skye's most southern tip) is the most important in Scotland. For a sample of the local culture, visitors to the island during mid July can experience the two-week long Skye and Lochalsh Festival - the Feis an Eilean. One of the most popular sights on Skye is the Cuillin ridge, made up of jagged snow-topped peaks, which can be seen from miles around, and are suitable for experienced walkers.
The other main attraction on the island is the unusual rock formations of the Trotternish Peninsula, where the pillars and pinnacles are at their most dramatic in the Quiraing above Staffin Bay, on the east coast
Whilst on the island, the capital Portree is worth a visit, with its picturesque fishing harbour encircled with restaurants, and a mile or so out of town, visitors can also experience the Aros Centre.
10 minute walk to the pier with mackerel fishing at high tide. A beach can be found at Glendale.
If you enjoy swimming outdoors then try Glenbrittle’s magical Faerie Pools, or try kayaking, sailing, fishing or scuba diving in the crystal clear water around Skye's coastline.
There are numerous boat trips around Skye to see the wildlife and other islands.

House equipped with everything you need, clean and ready for us. Except for the kitchen, there the cupboards need a thru scrubing again.

"Spacious 5* home"
Access to the property was very easy. This welcoming, spacious 5* home was a joy to arrive to after a very long journey. The property is clean, light & airy and well maintained with fantastic views over the Loch and Outer Hebrides.
If you like walking there are plenty of walks to do. Skye is easy to travel around by car. The 3 Chimneys restaurant is always very busy and difficult to book a reservation. The local shop has basic provisions which is more than adequate to get started with.
Dunvegan castle & seals are worth a visit.
Thank you for your review, much appreciated.
We're glad you enjoyed the cottage and Skye. It is always best to book with The Three Chimneys in advance of your stay.
