  • Pets welcome
  • Private garden

Katie's cottage is a typical Skye croft house. It was built in the early 1900's. Back then it cost £10 and three hogs to build and the stone mason would not get his daily payment if he did not complete a full course of stones for that day. The stones for the walls were quarried from the hills at the back of the cottage and brought on site using the Glendale community horse. Certainly different times!

In 2009 Katie's cottage was completely stripped down to the bare walls and fully renovated during 2009/2010.

The inside is cosy and welcoming with soft colours and natural materials like stone and wood. Both gable ends have exposed stone walls which add to the period character of the property.

The cottage is very comfortable with underfloor heating, a very well equipped kitchen, satellite color TV and WIFI internet.

And... pets are welcome!

Downstairs you will find a spacious open plan living area with sitting area and kitchen/dining area. To the back of the property is an extension which houses a separate utility room and a spacious bathroom. The downstairs floors are finished with beautiful cream coloured natural slate.

Via a beautiful, hand made, ash staircase -the ash was sourced from a local tree which was struck by lightning- one gets access to the upstairs area of the cottage. A mezzanine style landing gives access to two bedrooms: one double bedroom and one twin bedroom.
