This is a wonderful area for walking .If you get up into the hills behind the cottage , you will see in the distance the mountains of the Scottish mainland . Here you may see Golden Eagles .and other wildlife.
This is a truly special place that people return to frequently .

Location description from owner

The Scotland region

The cottage is situated in one of the most interesting parts of the Island. There are many bizarre rock formations in the Trotternish peninsula. Other extremely interesting features are the Quirang , and Kilt Rock all within easy reach from Storr Lochs Lodge.The location of the Storr Lochs is interesting in itself, ,although so near to the sea ( about a mile at most ) the loch is about 500 m.above sea level. A small museum at Staffin ( about 15 miles North) has very ancient remains .
;Further round this quite extraordinary coast you come to the small port of Uig , from where car ferries, sail to the Outer Hebrides . Bookings can be made with Caledonian MacBrayne.

“Wonderful stay in a beautiful landscape”

Reviewed 26 Mar 2015

We stayed at the cottage at the beginning of March and it was a truly magical experience. On arrival we found two bottles of wine and a welcoming phone call letting us know everything we needed. The cottage itself is the perfect size for two (and a dog) and has everything you could need to stay warm, fed and comfy. It's location is close to the local town as well as to some breathtaking scenery, and is easy to find if heading out by road. The loch surrounding the house and the Old Man of Storr in the distance make for a wonderfully tranquil atmosphere especially when the weather was clear. When the rain came and the wind picked up it made for an epic experience and I'm glad to have seen it. Everywhere is easy to get to by car, pretty much one road round the whole island, that will take you to all of the places worth seeing. Amenities and other such pleasures were easy to find in Portree, the local trading district. We will forever remember our stay at Storr Lochs Lodge and its amazing location. Mary couldn't have been more accommodating and I am already looking forward to our next stay. I said to myself I wouldn't rent the same cottage twice but I can't see how Storr could be bettered.
