This carefully designed, wheelchair accessible holiday home is set in an elevated position on Skye, where it enjoys breath-taking views out across the water.

Located close to the most southerly point of the Isle of Skye, this charming cottage sleeps six guests across three rooms. There are walks straight from the doorstep, and with a wood burner in the lounge/diner, and TV, DVD, and Wi-Fi to keep you entertained, the property is perfect for experiencing the peace and tranquility of a rural retreat to the south of Skye.

The ground floor is reached via three steps up to the front door, or ramp access to the back door. Inside, the spacious triple-aspect lounge/diner is the heart of the cottage, with a wood burner to warm your evenings and patio doors at one end for increased natural light and hillside views. Prepare dinner in the well-equipped and homely kitchen – which includes a small breakfast table perfect for light bites and quick snacks – and sit down together at the dining table. When it’s time to call it a night, snuggle down in one of the bright and colourful bedrooms. The first of these, a double, is on the ground floor, along with a bathroom with walk-in shower and bath.

Up the wooden staircase are the remaining two bedrooms, both of which have sloping ceilings as they are built into the roof space. Skylight windows on the landing, in the bedrooms, and in the shower room make the first floor a bright and welcoming space with lovely views, where you can be sure of a quiet night’s sleep.

The front of the property features a raised decked area straight from the front door. There is a range of seating, and it’s an idyllic spot for al fresco brunch or evening drinks looking out to sea. Immediately around the house it is gravelled, and as well as a grassy space there is a shallow stream that runs through the garden, so do make sure young children are supervised.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Please note there is a refundable £150 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

This starkly beautiful area of Scotland, with its sparse population and few settlements, makes for wonderful walking. Just down the road from the property, less than a mile away, is the Aird Old Church Gallery. After admiring the art, follow the trail until you reach a tiny harbour, and from there you can continue on to the lighthouse for breathtaking sea views at The Point of Sleat. Another popular walk is to join a trail at Kinloch Forest (14 miles) which takes you along an old drovers' road to an abandoned village. Also great for a stroll is Rubha Shleite (2 miles), a beautiful sandy beach in a sheltered bay where you can settle for the afternoon with a picnic, and further afield the dramatic ruins of Dunscaith Castle (13.5 miles) perched above the sea. Along the coast you'll find quaint villages, including Ardvasar (3.5 miles) and Armadale (4 miles), where you can stock up on supplies from the local shop, and sit down for a cup of tea and a piece of cake in a cafe. Armadale also has its fair share of visitor attractions. At the end of the pier is the Isle of Skye Leather company, which sells handmade items and creates bespoke orders, and if you fancy going back in time and travelling in style, there are regular carriage rides leaving from the village. Armadale Castle, Gardens and Museum (5 miles) has 40 acres to explore, as well as exhibitions on the history of the Isles, and two gift shops.

This property is personally managed by Carol.

Cnoc An Theine is a fantastic well-equipped cottage in the most stunning location. The decked area with table and chairs is fantastic for spending hours just relaxing and looking out over the water. It's also secure so the dogs could be out there with us without their leads. Mags popped up to check all was OK which was very thoughtful. Only a few mRead moreiles from Armadale so we took the ferry over from Mallaig. There's a well stocked local shop in Armadale and a large co-op slightly further afield in Broadford with very reasonably priced fuel. The Inn at Ardvasar is also just a few miles up the road and recommended for a quick drink on the way home or an evening meal. We'd have stayed here a second week if the cottage had been available!

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.
