Eilean Sionnach Lighthouse Cottage Large group Family friendly Pet/Dog Friendly Holiday Cottage in Isleornsay, The Highlands, Scotland


Stylish, pet-friendly Lighthouse Cottage on the Isle of Skye. The cosy cottage sleeps eight in four ensuite bedrooms and is fully equipped with modern conveniences and a log burner. Stunning sea and mountain views. Arrival and departure by boat.

Welcome to Eilean Sionnach Lighthouse Cottage on the Isle of Skye (you say Aylahn Shoo noch). It means the Island of the Fox.  The cottage is located on a tidal island on the rugged Isle of Skye, Scotland’s most legendary island. It’s been said that this place feels as old as time itself.  A lighthouse keeper’s cottage nestled into the rocks – its historical inhabitant with a very important job to do.

Overview

The former Lighthouse Keeper's Cottage is your home during your stay. The cottage has 4 bedrooms, three of which have king-sized beds and the fourth has a single day bed that makes up into a full king-size. All four bedrooms are ensuite and the master bathroom features a roll-top bath. The cottage also has a spacious lounge, atmospheric dining room and well equipped kitchen.

Arrival and departure is by a short 10 minute skippered boat trip. It's also possible to walk on and off the tidal island depending on the tides.

In more detail...

In this unique, secluded place nothing interrupts.  Slow down and simply just ‘be’.  There’s no rush here – the natural rhythm and nature of the sea dictates the day.  It takes time to access the island. On your epic journey to Skye, feel as though you’re travelling back in time.  Feel that time itself has started to slow down. Discover the wonder of this ancient land and all there is to explore.  Arrive at a place like nowhere else and forget the outside world.

You might be greeted by a storm. You might be greeted by stillness. As the seas rise and fall about you, the cottage holds you tight.  The fire burns warm in the hearth.  Sit by the fire with a dram of whisky or a good book; listen to the music of the waves; experience the wildness and beauty of this place where you can enjoy the ‘little things’ in life.

Perhaps you value home comforts even out in the wild, so all the little details are attended to.  Make use of this place as if it were your own. And just across the way (walkable when the tide is out) a traditional Highland pub awaits when you’re ready to reconnect with the outside world.

Renovated to a high standard and fully equipped with modern conveniences, you'll find the cottage a far cry from the days of the old lighthouse keepers! Underfloor heating keeps your toes warm in the ensuite bathrooms and kitchen and a smeg range style cooker and American style fridge freezer mean there's scope to have everything your party needs to hand - no need to go to the shops all week. A dish washer, washing machine and tumble drier are provided for your convenience.  Although there's no TV in the property, there is superfast broadband WiFi.

What to see and do...

Skye is a well-known Scottish tourist destination that attracts bus tours and backpackers all summer long. But here in the village of Isleornsay you'll find the picturesque, off-the-beaten-track side of Skye you may have dreamed of.  With several high quality restaurants,galleries, artist studios and shopping experiences within a few miles, it's definitey a part of Skye catering to the luxury traveller.

And for the outward bound, sea kayaking, wild swimming, mountain biking and guided walking are all easy to arrange so that you can make the most of what Skye has to offer.

Our property manager can put you in touch with tour guides and activity leaders when you book.

Eilean Sionnach lighthouse keeper’s cottage is a unique place on Skye. A place with a sense of peace that some say is hard to find in a modern world.

Come, and discover what you’ve been missing.
