The Hebrides/Skye region
From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain's best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.
Situated on the Trotternish Peninsula in the north of Skye is the scattered village of Conista - formed from a few, traditionally whitewashed cottages. Ten miles from the village of Uig, and six from Staffin, Conista is well served by local amenities. It also boasts close proximity to Duntulm, named after a steep rocky headland where the ruins of Duntulm Castle can be seen. The entire island offers excellent walking routes, as does the nearby mainland - accessible by both road bridge and ferry - whilst the breathtaking scenery makes a wonderful backdrop for cycling trips, fishing and birdwatching, especially as many seabirds use the steep cliffs during the early summer, including the rare Fulmar.

"Superb location - mountains on one side and the sea (at a distance) on the other."
Ridge End Cottage is wonderfully located at the northern tip of the Trotternish Peninsula on Skye. Fifteen minutes into Staffin for light shopping, newspapers, and excellent Internet services at Columba 1400. 40 minutes into Portree. The interior of the cottage is clean and very comfortable and the neighbors around the cottage are exceptionally friendly and helpful. The only (very slight) downside was that the cottage was not as well-equipped as many that we have rented. But we had an excellent two weeks there and hope to be able to return.
