Please note - the B&B is open now, subject to coronavirus restrictions, and I will keep at least 2 days free between bookings in order to allow for an enhanced cleaning process.
I offer a high quality peaceful retreat for two people looking for a location that is typical of Skye with wide countryside views along a very quiet road, ideally situated between the Skye Bridge and the Mallaig to Armadale ferry, both of which are about 20 minutes away.
Parts of Skye are becoming very busy and expensive, but South Skye is still an undiscovered gem.
The Cottage is ideal for that special holiday - a landmark birthday, a wedding, honeymoon or anniversary perhaps and the modern interior and comfortable, well equipped accommodation are aimed at providing an experience which I hope you will enjoy.
Take a short walk from the house to the nearby loch or watch the light changing over the tops of Blaven and the Cuillins or Ben Sgriteall on the mainland. Hear the squeal of buzzards flying overhead or keep an eye out for the elusive eagles that sometimes come our way.
In the evenings, guests have exclusive use of the lounge that has wide views of the countryside and a very cosy wood burning stove.
The B&B is very near Kinloch Lodge, Eilean Iarmain and Duisdale House which are ideal for that special evening meal, or Broadford is about 20 minutes away where there are other restaurants and cafes.
Sit on the comfortable chairs in the guest lounge or relax outside and soak up the views of the countryside and the mountains in the distance. Take a walk from the house either to the nearby loch or along the quiet single track road.
The lounge is exclusively for guests to use in the evening and the TV is set up with NETFLIX for your enjoyment. Come back from a wonderful day exploring the island and revive yourself with a cup of tea or fresh coffee and homemade cake. Books, maps and binoculars are available for guests to borrow, or I could tell you all about my favourite secret places on Skye.
I offer a very varied breakfast menu, including a full Scottish breakfast and fish, souffle or pancakes for a lighter option. My fresh fruit salad is much appreciated, as are the home-made jams and marmalade and freshly brewed fairtrade coffee.
There is a spacious shower cubical with a large rain shower and a stylish basin and I supply luxury linen, cosy dressing gowns, slippers and large soft towels.
This is by far the lovliest B&B we've been to, with the best breakfast. The view is fantastic and we only wanted to sit and watch.- Gaby and Werner
Superb B&B and what a location! Facilities are second to none and this is currently unbeatable in what it offers. Can't recommend this high enough!

Exceptionally high standard of accommodation in a house that takes full advantage of the wonderful views.
