Enjoy the rugged beauty of the Isle of Skye from this spacious family home where an abundance of walks, wildlife and stunning coastline can be explored.

The cottage is nestled in the sleepy township of Ose, which lies on the west coast of the Isle of Skye between Dunvegan and Struan. The wildlife in this area is extensive and a track leads from the main gate down to the shore where seals, otters and sea eagles can be seen. The village of Dunvegan is 7 miles away and has independent shops, Skye’s oldest bakery, restaurants, an art gallery and gift shops. Explore Dunvegan Castle and Gardens or enjoy a walk down to the Coral Beach in Claigan, just north of Dunvegan by another 5 miles. The island's capital of Portree is 14 miles away and has a selection of supermarkets, shops, cafes, restaurants and excellent leisure facilities including the Fingal Centre with a swimming pool and gym.

 On entering this beautiful home, step into the handy porch where you can hang up your coats and kick off your boots after a long walk. Head through to the kitchen/diner which is fully equipped to cook up a storm with an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave and washing machine. Set the table and enjoy a family meal whilst planning your next adventures. The lounge has a big window overlooking the countryside and comfortable sofas to relax on after a day out exploring the local area – enjoy a movie on the TV with Freeview. On those cooler evenings, curl up in front of the roaring wood burner and warm cold toes. Continuing through the hallway on the ground floor you will find two bedrooms, the first is a double bedroom and the second is a twin bedroom. There is a family bathroom with a shower over the bath and WC on the ground floor too. Heading upstairs you will find another double bedroom which benefits from an en-suite shower room with WC.

Venturing outside, there is a spacious, enclosed garden with a large lawn, perfect for children to play and burn off some energy. There is a seating area where you can relax and take in the views. From the rear garden, you can sit and enjoy stunning views of Loch Bracadale. There is parking on the driveway for two cars.

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.
