The centrally situated holiday cottage is ideal for climbing and walking and for exploring the rest of Skye.There is a fantastic waterfall with a 'swimming pool' for the brave!

Our Highland Holiday Cottage Facilities

The holiday cottage has been comfortably modernised while retaining its traditional character. Modern double glazing throughout ensures comfort even in the depths of winter. The kitchen/sitting room has a new (2015) wood burning stove in addition to a storage radiator and electric heaters whilst comfortable sofas and chairs provide a cosy place for passing those wet or midgy Skye evenings! There is a good selection of books, as well as cards, jigsaw puzzles and games. There is no television as the reception is poor but the cottage is wifi  broadband enabled and there is a telephone. The well equipped kitchen provides everything that you need to cater for 8 people, except of course food and drink! There are full sets of crockery, glasses and cutlery, and a wide selection of pans and utensils. We provide tea towels and oven gloves.

In the holiday cottage one bedroom with 4 single beds is up some steep and narrow stairs, and there are two bedrooms downstairs. (One with a double and a single bed leads through to a twin room). Please note that linen is provided but towels are an extra. A cot and high chair can be provided on request.

There is a downstairs bathroom with bath, shower, hand basin and toilet. Through a separate entrance there is a shower room, with electric shower, hand-basin and toilet. There is an automatic washer/dryer. Bath mats are provided.

There is a large drying room with electric heater and clothes pulley rack.

As a wonderful and unusual bonus there is the former large School Room, now a Games Room with table tennis, darts, table skittles and other games. Also old sofas, chairs and a small open fire.

. All rooms have electric heaters with controllable time clocks and there is a storage radiator in the hall and one in the sitting-room. We provide wood - one sack is free- and a little kindling to start you off on arrival.  Note that electricity is not included in the rent - please see conditions of let for more details.The cottage has a private water supply with a UV sterilisation and filtration plant.  Hot water is provided by immersion heaters and controllable time clocks, and the shower in the shower-room heats its own water.There is a telephone at the cottage for both incoming and outgoing calls, and broadband wifi. Please note that mobile phone coverage can be patchy on Skye.

Pets and dogs, not on the furniture or in the bedrooms, are welcome at our Highland Cottage.

Our holiday cottage is located near Carbost in the Isle of Skye, in the West Highlands of Scotland. As you will see on the website, the cottage is in an excellent location near Carbost village and the Cuillin Hills. This is an excellent cottage for walkers and climbers, or as a base for  exploring the Isle of Skye by car. 

Carbost village and the Talisker distillery are about 1/3rd mile from the cottage. The Inn is open through the season serving food all day and there is a small shop.Other shopping is available at Portree, about 15miles north and Broadford or Dunvegan. A big additional attraction is The Oyster Shed half-way down the hill to the village. There Paul has a varied take-away menu, farm shop with veg., venison, wide selection of fish and shell fish and of sauces, etc. He will also serve you a fresh oyster there and then!

As well as walking and climbing there are many great things to do near the cottage, including visiting the nearby sandy beaches at Glenbrittle, Fiscavaig and Talisker. Golf is available at a 9 hole course in Sconser about 9 miles away. For swimming - the burn by the cottage has a lovely pool under the waterfal and the now famous Fairy pools are only a few miles distant but beware they have become very popular! The sea is never far away, but if you long for chlorine and warmth then Portree has a good public swimming pool. Fishing: - in season river, loch and sea fishing are available locally (please ask us for details). There is also a great range of Boat Trips available from a number of places, including Broadford, Portree, and into Loch Coruisk from Elgol
