Location description from owner

The Scotland region

Aurora Cottage is perfectly placed for walking, wildlife, climbing, fishing, boat trips or cycling. But equally well placed for an 'away from it all' holiday.

Recharge your batteries in our beautiful cottage and just enjoy the stunning scenery and views.

So whether its exploring Skye or peace and quiet, come and stay at Aurora, the perfect island getaway.

Kilmuir

Borniskitaig is a small crofting community on the north west of the Trotternish Peninsula. It is perfect for a quiet relaxing holiday but is also well placed to explore the rest of Skye.

Nearby is the ruined castle of Duntulm and on the beach below are the recently discovered footprints of a dinosaur, some 170 million years old! Within site of the cottage is the Skye Museum of Island Life and a short walk takes you to the grave of Flora MacDonald,the 18th century Jacobite heroine.

Just a short drive away is the magical Fairy Glen and the Quiraing, a stunning geological feature often used in Hollywood films. Recently appearing in Macbeth starring Michael Fassbender and soon to appear in King Arthur.

“Excellent accomodation and customer service”

Reviewed 25 Jun 2013

What can we say other than we had a brilliant holiday here. The cottage was fantastic everything was clean, tidy and very spacious for me, jenny, Skye (our 21 week old daughter) and dog aika. The garden was like a small piece of heaven for the dog she loved it. The views from the cottage were stunning. The booking and correspondence with the Karen was excellent it made everything more personal. We recommend staying here for your visit to the Isle of Skye. We will definitely book again.
