Description

**FREE WiFi** Cuillin Lodge is situated at the foot of the Cuillin in the tiny hamlet of Glenbrittle, with direct access onto the mountains and provides a wonderful base for climbers and hill walkers. There are stunning views of the mountain ridge from the decked patio and lounge. The Cuillin are widely acknowledged as Britain's most spectacular mountains and Glenbrittle has a prominent place in the history of Scottish mountaineering. More information on this is available in the small library of books at the cottage, and a collection of historic mountaineering prints is displayed on the walls.The cottage has been recently completely redesigned internally and refurbished to provide a pleasant, modern living space with all the comforts of home, and many visitors go home vowing to return again very soon.

Further details outdoors

The cottage is surrounded by a flat, fenced garden, laid mainly to lawn. There is ample parking and a large lockable shed is available

Location description from owner

The Scotland region

The Isle of Skye is the largest and most northerly island in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland, its peninsulas radiating out from a mountainous centre dominated by the Cuillin mountains. The Cuillin include twelve Munros (Scottish mountains over 3,000 feet) and provide the most dramatic and challenging mountain terrain of anywhere in Scotland and indeed The Inaccessible Pinnacle (visible from the cottage lounge) is the only Munro requiring technical climbing skills to reach the summit.

At one time only accessible by ferry, Skye is now linked to the Kyle of Lochalsh on the mainland by a very picturesque road bridge. The island is renowned for its dramatic coastline, spectacular scenery and abundant wildlife, including the densest population of golden eagles in Western Europe. Portree is the largest settlement on Skye and is known for its picturesque harbour. Just over 30 per cent of the residents on Skye speak the Gaelic language.

Although the island experiences its fair share of wind and rain, the influence of the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf Stream create a mild oceanic climate.

Glenbrittle

Apart from being the obvious base for those wishing to climb some very challenging mountains, Glenbrittle is absolutely perfect for anyone seeking a peaceful location to recharge the batteries, with just the sound of waterfalls, the colours of the changing seasons and the enormous variety of wildlife in the area. Glen Brittle Forest and the headland offer many miles of mountain bike trails and there are also lower level coastal and river walks for those less adventurous climbers.

Eas Mor 'the grandest waterfall on Skye' is a short walk from the cottage and the enchanting Fairy Pools are also found in the glen. The nearby sandy beach, one of the largest on Skye, is a very special place, with the majestic mountains behind and views out to the isles of Rhum and Canna. There is a huge variety of wildlife in this beautiful location and golden eagles, sea eagles and otters have been spotted at or near the property. Boat trips available locally afford sightings of minke whales, basking sharks, seals, dolphins, porpoises, otters, sea-eagles and puffins.

Other local attractions worth a visit include the Talisker distillery and the Old Inn, both in the nearest village of Carbost. Also on the island are Dunvegan Castle, the renowned Three Chimneys Restaurant and the Aros Centre, which displays local art and hosts theatre productions.

“An amazing stay”

Reviewed 10 Jul 2016

This was the second time visiting Skye for me and my sister and we were lucky to get these two nights to show this beautiful place to our mum. She loved the Lodge and Mrs Angela was great as usual. We were sorry to go but had other places to see during this vacation break. A little less rain would have been better but it was still a great couple days. Thank you! Rita, Ana and Palmira

“amazing location - great accomodation”

Reviewed 25 Apr 2012

Amazing location - right at the foot of the Cuillin mountains and 15 mins walk to the beach. Accommodation spot, on clean, comfortable and well equipt. Had a week of sunshine which is quite unbelievable at Easter.

“Stunning views, peace and tranquillity in a well equipped property”

Reviewed 31 Dec 2011

Stayed for a week in August 2011 with my husband and two teenage daughters. The property is off the beaten track with a few other houses nearby. We loved the peace and tranquillity and the stunning views over the mountains when sitting in the living room. No mobile phone signal (which for me was a bonus). It was a novelty for my daughter to call her boyfriend from a payphone close by. Property is very well maintained and really well equipped. It was a bonus having a DVD player and lots of books to read when the weather was not so good and it was very changeable! We ate in a few times and it had everything we needed. 10 minutes walk to the beach and 15 minutes walk to the waterfall (opposite the Youth Hostel). A car is essential, we toured all around the island and found it stunning. Make sure you walk up to the fairy pools (10 minutes from Glenbrittle by car). We also enjoyed visiting Portree, Uig, Dunvegan, Mallaig and lots more. Loved the arts and crafts and walking on the island. We enjoyed a boat trip from Kyle of Lochalsh (just over the bridge) and we saw seals and sea birds. I was worried my daughters would be bored but as one is a photographer she loved it and my other daughter enjoyed walking and exploring. We would definitely like to return in the future and highly recommend this property.
