Description from owner


Mackenzie Cottage is a semi-detached cottage situated in Satran with views of Loch Harport and overlooking Glen Drynoch. Satran is in the area of Skye known as Minginish and a ten minute drive from the Cuillin Hills. The area around abounds with wild life; otters, oystercatchers, sea-eagles, golden-eagles, sparrow-hawks, along with buzzards that sweep and soar along the glen. An ideal base for climbing the Cuillin Hills or searching out the "Fairy Pools" as the start of the walk can reached within a 10 minute car journey. In the village of Carbost you will find Talisker Distillery where you can book onto a tour to find out how single malt spirit is made then matured in warehouses to become Talisker Single Malt Whisky.

Very Good

“Couldn't be more helpful B&B”

Reviewed 18 Oct 2020

It looked like Covid had prevented our holiday from going ahead but Mrs Morrison provided us with a second cottage so we didn't have 2 households mixing. Both were warm, very comfortable and well equipped. They are centrally positioned to tour most of Skye. Highlights would be 4 golden eagles whilst working our way up from The Storr (stunning scenery) to The Quirang and great views of The Cuillin from Glenbrittle and Sligachan. The Fairy Pools are pleasant but parking is pricey and similar scenery is available elsewhere. Neist Point lighthouse has great coastal walking. Dunvegan Castle is nearby. Talisker Distillery is up the road. The Three Chimneys restaurant is a 15 minute drive.
