Description from owner


Driftwood Cottage is a detached former Blackhouse built in 1890, recently renovated to a modern standard, providing Self catering for 4 persons in 2 bedrooms. The cottage occupies a stunning hillside location above Staffin Bay with spectacular views across the sea to mainland Scotland. Situated in the crofting village of Staffin, Driftwood Cottage makes an ideal base for exploring the Trotternish Peninsula, located on the north-east coast of the Isle of Skye. Boasting famous geological sights such as the Quiraing, Kilt Rock, the Old Man of Storr, Duntulm Castle, Skye museum of island life, Staffin Dinosaur Museum & Uig - this Peninsula and its views are simply breathtaking and a must for any visitor to Skye.The property is the owners’ former family home which they lived in from 2010 -2016 and consequently ‘oozes’ a wonderful homely charm. The family pride themselves on attention to detail to ensure that every need is catered for and relaxation is paramount. FREE WI FI, FREE PARKING

The Kitchen/Dining Room 29Sq Metres / 310 Sq Ft.

This spacious but cosy kitchen is the best room in the cottage – light and airy, it offers the best views and has been left as a wonderfully functional family kitchen. The ‘Stanley Rayburn’ cooker/boiler and large oak dining table, make this a warm and comforting room for socialising. The kitchen is fully equipped with a gas hob/electric oven, microwave, coffee machine, fridge/freezer & dishwasher.

Having lived in the cottage for many years and cooking/baking being a passion of the owners, they have equipped the kitchen to a high standard and hope that it will exceed expectations of a self-catering property.

The Sitting Room 12 Sq Metre / 120 Sq. Ft.

This room offers wonderful views and is warm and comfortable. A digital TV and DVD player is available as well as a selection of games and books. There is plenty of space to stretch out on the sofas after a day’s walking/sightseeing.
