This wonderfully bright and spacious detached cottage is perfect for a family getaway. With a roaring wood burner and nestled in a peaceful location, it's the perfect getaway on the magical Isle of Skye.

This getaway is perfectly positioned in the quiet little crofting township of Camuscross on the Sleat Peninsula in the southern part of Skye. The village is full of rural charm with its single-track road that curls prettily around the coastline offering wonderful valley and countryside scenery. The cottage is within walking distance of small and secluded sandy bays, a wonderful spot for walking the dogs, and the popular local restaurant and bar with its cosy lounge and crackling log fire where you can enjoy a dram of award-winning Gaelic whiskies and gins. You will also find a small pier, an art gallery, and a whisky shop.

On entering this beautiful home, step into the handy porch where you will find the washing machine, and space to leave your outdoor boots and shoes. The porch leads into the kitchen/diner, which is fully equipped to cook up a storm with an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. Set the table and enjoy a family meal whilst planning your next adventures. Follow the hall through to the delightful and welcoming lounge which features a traditional wood burner. Relax on the comfortable sofas after a day out exploring and watch a movie on the Smart TV or play a board game. Continuing back through the hall you will find a family bathroom with a bath, separate shower and a WC and two light and bright bedrooms, one king-size and one twin.

Outside, the spacious enclosed garden, which is mainly laid to lawn, is the perfect area for children to play and relax in whilst you admire the splendid countryside scenery. There is a seating area with a charcoal BBQ for al fresco dining on a warmer day. There is ample off-road parking available next to the property.

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
