The Hebrides/Skye region

The natural beauty of the Isle entices visitors to return again and again, lured back by the abundance of wildlife, variety of birds.

There is a variety of walking terrains and the spectacular sea life including puffin colonies and the occasional glimpse of a whale.


Portree is the principle town in Skye and as such as all the local amenities you would expect, including shops, supermarkets, restaurents, library and swimming pool.

Skeabost Bridge is a 10 minute drive from Portree and just on the River Snizort.

The house was obviously designed by an architect: beautiful, clever use of space. Windows and large skylights in every room give lovely views of hills, river, and pasture with grazing sheep. Minimal… More

"Wonderful Spot"

Cottage is as good as it looks in the pictures with great outlook across green fields. It's well equipped and maintained and we would be happy to stay there again. Good location for touring the northern part of Skye

"Superb - hope to be back!!"

Wow! What a stunning house - beautifully designed and furnished, and spotlessly clean on arrival. We loved staying here and so did our two girls. Amazing views and a very practical layout made for a most relaxing stay. We really hope to be back before too long.

"We stayed at Skeabost for our honeymoon and it was amazing!!"

We stayed at Skeabost for 3 nights for our honeymoon. The cottage is tucked away off a road and it really does feel like you're away from everyone and everything else. In a word, it is beautiful.… More

"Relax in luxury, peace and tranquility"

The silver birch wood within the grounds of the cottage was great for our 7 and 9 year olds to explore. The surrounding area is beautiful and ideal for running/jogging away from the main road. The cottage is well placed for exploring the north and west of Skye with facilities in Portree a short drive. Dunvegan Castle and Tallisker Bay well worth a visit. Ales from the Isle of Skye Brewery a real treat, particularly the 'Red Cuillen'.
