From the owner

Come and relax in a beautiful traditional detached crofter's cottage in the picturesque village of Torrin on the Isle of Skye. A fabulous base from which you can easily enjoy all the wonders of Skye.

Torrin is a small village (7 miles from Broadford, Skye's second largest town) on the shores of Loch Slappin, close to a gorgeous secluded beach and nestled between the Red Cuillin and the mighty Bla Bhienn (pronounced Blaven, it means blue mountain). Bla Bhienn is our favourite mountain and arguably the finest Munro in Scotland!

The cottage has been in the family for over 150 years, we have just completed a big upgrade. It is now rewired, re-plumbed with all new carpets and decoration in time for your visit! It's wonderfully homely and comfortable and very very peaceful.

The property has been extended over the years comprising on the ground floor a cosy L-shaped living room with log/coal burning stove. An initial supply of coal and kindling will be provided. There's also a TV, DVD player, books, maps and games. There is a very well equipped kitchen with fridge/freezer, electric cooker, microwave, washing machine and tumble dryer. There's a separate dining room, a twin bedroom and a WC with wash basin all on the ground floor. Upstairs is a double bedroom, a further twin bedroom and bathroom with electric shower, WC and wash basin. Downstairs also has a fabulous sun porch overlooking the garden - a great place to relax after a day's exploring! The cottage is double glazed throughout and has an electrical heating system as well as the log burning stove in the living room.

As a traditional cottage, the stairs are rather steep and narrow so care should be taken at all times.

There is large cultivated mature garden with further grounds surrounding the house.

The cottage is situated up a lane off the road. There's free parking with room for two cars in the drive on our property.

The cottage is 7 miles from Broadford, lovely little town with a beautiful bay and views to the mainland. It has a good variety of shops, artisan and craft outlets and a really excellent Co-Op supermarket, 24 hour garage and chemist, doctor, dentist etc. There are several restaurants and cafes etc etc. And there are two ATM cash machines, a Post Office and a mobile bank.
