Description from owner

Description

The cottage is in Sleat on the Isle of Skye, commonly known as "The Garden" of Skye. It is right by the shore of Camus Cross Bay beside the picturesque village of Isle Ornsay. This, a crofting village of whitewashed cottages, once was a busy harbour for fishing boats. It has views overlooking a beautiful lighthouse. The local Hotel Eilean Iarmain has good food and a welcoming bar often with live music and Ceilidhs.

The Misty Isle of Skye has the most spectacular scenery. It is dominated by the magnificent Cuillin Range which can be seen from many points of the island, each offering another breathtaking view.

Further details

There are books and maps about Skye at the cottage and there is an English-speaking representative on hand to answer any questions.

Further details indoors

The lounge has a sleek hole-in-the-wall wood burning fire. It is cosy and beautifully furnished. The Kitchen will be the hub of things with a large beautiful teak dining

Location description from owner

The Scotland region

Skye is renowned for its geological formations, the gabbro of the Black Cuillin, the hard granite of the Red Cuillin, the lava landscape of Quirang and Storr and the jurassic sandstone of the pitted rock at Elgol.

The wildlife is abundant around the rugged sea lochs where you may see dolphins, seals, whales otters and sea eagles. Deer are never far away.

With years of history behind it you will be immersed in the archaeology, the turbulent past and charming Gaelic folklore. There are many monuments, castles, folk museums, Scotch whiskey distilleries, art and craft galleries and visitor centres to enjoy.

Isleornsay

I love Elgol - my most favourite view in the world! - Stunning view of the Cuillin Range. Also walk on the pebble beach to the over hanging rock made of Jurassic Sandstone - looks like honey comb.
There's a three mile walk to Camusunary Bothy from a mile outside Elgol.

Take a fast rib to Canna and Rum whale and wild life watch. Ribs can be taken from Elgol - Bella Jane or Seafari from Armadale pier.

Walk 3 miles to the Point of Sleat. Half a mile before the Point there is a track to one of the few sandy beaches on the island - a lovely bay. The point has a wee bothy and views to Rum and the Cuillin.

There is a forest walk at Lettir Fern - near Kinloch Lodge - (which is an expensive/nice place to eat - Lady Claire MacDonald's Hotel)

The local Hotel Eilean Iarmain is great for bar meals - also for dinner. Also there is usually an Art Exhibition on in the summer. There is also Duisdale Hotel and Toravaig nearby with exclusive menus. In Broadford there are a number of restaurants. Visit the famous 3 Chimneys Restaurant at Dunvegan- book way in advance!

There is a great bric a brac store called Breakish Byres on the Broadford to Kyle Road at Breakish. It's an Aladdin's cave.

Pick up the Visitor magazine - which has a map to show you the tourist attractions round the island.

Geographically : Kilt Rock (and the dinosaur prints), Old Man of Storr, Quirang, Macleods Table, Cuillin, Macleod's sisters.

Historically: Flora MacDonalds Monument at Kilmuir and visit a Skye Life museum. Visit Neist Point Lighthouse.

Interest: There is a Museum of Toys in Glendale - an amazing array of old toys.

Whisky Tasting: Locally at Isle Ornsay and at Talisker. There is another lovely walk to Talisker Bay as well.

Travel: An alternative route other than the Skye Bridge is the route via Mallaig by Ferry to Armadale on Skye. Take the coastal loop road to see the beaches and views to Rum.
(Phone Cal Mac to check if the ferries are running and to book. 01471 844 248).

Provisions: There is a good co-op in Broadford and in Kyle before the bridge.

“Fabulous accommodation. Tasteful, clean and a real pressure to stay in.”

Reviewed 3 Mar 2013

I can't praise this property enough. The location has to be one of the nicest spots on Skye. The property was fully equipped with everything we could possibly need and the views from every window were a picture in themselves. We would unquestionably return.
