Cottage | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Pooltiel View consists of two double bedrooms and two twin bedrooms, three of the bedrooms have en suite bathrooms and there is a main bathroom adjacent to the fourth bedroom. The layout of the house is ideal for large parties of up to eight, two families or a family plus Grandparents. The lounge has floor to ceiling windows to take advantage of the magnificent views. It also has a wood burning stove for the cooler winter evenings. On a clear day the outer Hebridean islands can be seen. The cottage is set in natural croft land and has stunning views. It is in a peaceful location, within a 10 minute walk to Milovaig Pier, a beach can be found at Glendale and with views towards the outer Hebrides.
Pooltiel View provides the ideal cottage 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. 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.
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.
For larger parties of up to 16 the neighbouring property (248808 Waterfall View) can be booked.
