On your arrival, a 'welcome gift' awaits you with a bottle of wine, and tea tray with Scottish shortbread, tea, sugar & milk; filled salt and pepper mills, too!
Providing accommodation for two, An Eyrie does so in style. This 'penthouse apartment', exclusively for adults, has been thoughtfully designed to ensure that you have everything you could possible need or desire to enjoy a relaxing break on Skye.
The exquisitely furnished double bedroom with luxury linens also has a seating area for reading, relaxing and taking in the infinite sea views.
The Spa shower room with vessel sink and heated towel rail, enjoys finishing touches of natural soaps and indulgent Pima cotton towels.
In the open space living area overlooking the sea, take pleasure in lounging on the comfy sofa, along with flat screen HD Satellite combi TV/DVD and CD player, as well as books galore!
Enjoy casual cooking in the 'Bijou' mini-kitchen with full size fridge freezer, sink, microwave-oven-grill, work top mini-hob and slow cooker, toaster, electric kettle, cafetière and all the gadgets you need as well.
Dining, too, is a treat with the lovely dinnerware, cutlery and glassware.
An Eyrie penthouse apartment is available for rental on its own. Completely private, the penthouse is situated on the first floor of Tir nan Og Cottage. For larger parties, An Eyrie penthouse may also be taken as additional accommodation with Tir nan Og Cottage which is also available for rental through Islands & Highlands Cottages.
When you rent An Eyrie combined with renting Tir nan Og, you have an ideal get-away for 2 couples (or 3 or 4 adults - family/friends) who want to be 'together' but who also want to enjoy privacy. Each property has its own entrance and porch for wellies, coats etc. If you are not renting An Eyrie together with Tir nan Og, you are still guaranteed total privacy, as only one residence is rented out at a time.
There are spectacular views from the apartment and surrounding garden, across the sea and to the Outer Isles. Sunsets viewed from An Eyrie will leave a lasting memory of your stay at this beautiful lofty 'penthouse style' apartment.
Only a few minutes to nearby attractions including the famous Stein Inn, the oldest pub on Skye, Lochbay Restaurant, Images Gallery, Skyeskins, the medieval Trumpan Church and our very own Iron Age broch-Dun Hallin! About 10 minutes to Dunvegan Castle. And for unobstucted star gazing (some of the darkest night skies in all of Europe), enjoy our new Celestron telescope.
An Eyrie extends to you a warm invitation to relax, unwind and enjoy. Available September to May. Available with Tir Nan Og & Penthouse Apartment all year for 4 people.

North West Skye
It is easy to understand why this area attracts visitors from all over the world. Dunvegan castle is the oldest inhabited castle in Scotland and is home of the Clan Chief Macleod. A visit to the castle and its gardens is a must. Its spectacular fireworks display is fast becoming the place to be on Guy Fawkes Night. Dunvegan has a variety of shops and restaurants and you can take seal boat trips, visit the Coral Beaches and enjoy all the visitors' attractions this area has to offer.
Anyone interested in coastal scenery and marine wildlife including whales, porpoises and sea birds will enjoy Kildonan and Waternish. The visitor can enjoy boat trips, guided walks, craft shops and excellent restaurants. The oldest Inn on Skye is situated in the eighteenth century township of Stein and is well worth a visit.

A lot of thought has gone into the look and style of An Eyrie, which is a well presented and an enjoyable place to stay whilst on the beautiful Isle of Skye.
The directions to the cottage are very good and it's easy to find. Parking is right next to the cottage and is rather secure.
The entrance lobby is compact and ideal for leaving one's shoes, boots and coats.
As I climbed the stairs to the living accommodation I said 'wow' to myself. A double bedroom is to the right which has great views of Dunvegan Head and it's loch. There's a little seating area here too, to pause and admire the view when your not sleeping.
A wide gallery leads to the compact bathroom which is well decorated, then onto the bijou kitchenette which is situated next door. The kitchen is big enough for one person only and is very compact, but a full English breakfast could be cooked up without issues if adequate planning had taken place beforehand.
The seating area is next to the kitchen as the gallery opens into a bigger space, with comfortable sofa, a small table for meals, TV with FreeSat and DVD player. Again, lovely views are to be had from the ample Velux window and the table is ideally placed to admire these vistas ad infinitum.
There's an excellent selection of books to read, DVDs to watch (although we didn't).
The property's name is very apt, 'Tir Nan Og' or land of dreams.
We were blessed with a fortnight of glorious weather which added to the magnificence of Skye. I won't go into the activities to experience on Skye except to suggest a visit to Skye Skyns, Russel Sherwood Photography and a ferry ride to the Outer Hebrides (Harris or Lewis) whose beauty is unsurpassed.
I don't want to go home.
