High on a hillside on the western edge of Skye sits this pretty whitewashed bungalow, brimming with rustic charm and homely touches.

Right on the rugged edges of the country, where the Isle of Skye meets the Atlantic, this holiday cottage is a dream retreat for a family or group of friends wishing to get away from the grind and immerse themselves in the wilderness of this stunning Scottish island.

The cottage is a quaint, pretty bungalow set on a meadowy climb overlooking the sea. Inside, its light and cosy rooms offer your very own island retreat; with uninterrupted views across the water and mountains, and space outside, the cottage gives you the ability to immerse yourself in this fantastic atmosphere.

Inside, the rooms are ideal for a troupe of adventurers. The sitting room is snug and pretty, with sofas and armchairs beside the TV and an open fire. The kitchen is in a sweet country style with a window-side family table and all the equipment and appliances you need to rustle up fuel for your hikes and cycle rides. Head through to your lovely bedrooms. The master is a romantic double, peaceful with light furnishings and thoughtful touches. The other bedrooms are a twin and a bunk bedroom, perfect for kids to enjoy their own space while they’re here. Each room enjoys its own special view of the dramatic surrounding scenery.

The space outside the cottage has been designed so that you can make the most of the landscape. Lush grass and heath flowers curl around the house and a picnic bench gives you an inspiring lookout point on the loch to enjoy a meal or read a book.

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.

The cottage is situated in a small sweet crofting hamlet. It enjoys a balance of seclusion and company, with other beautiful cottages curling around the cliff edge. From your garden, you can see Dunvegan Head and even the Outer Hebrides when the weather's clear. A 2.5-mile stroll around Loch Pooltiel will bring you to the heart of Glendale, a quintessential Skye community, with shops and a post office, all nestled in a nook of the Hamra River.

From here, you can explore all the sights the Isle of Skye has to offer. Take a drive along the mountain road around the coast. This stretch of sea is home to fascinating habitats and species of wildlife, many of which you won't find anywhere else. Head to Neist Point to enjoy some prime island wildlife watching — you may even spot dolphins, minke whales or basking sharks. There have even been killer whale sightings in recent years. Take a 3-mile trek around Loch Mor over to Neist Point, where you'll find a trail to walk and Neist Point Lighthouse, a perfect place to do some spotting.

Or head further afield to take in some local history of the island. The site of Dunvegan Castle and Gardens is a 10.5-mile drive from the cottage and is a beautiful lochside building.

This property is personally managed by Carol.

A very pretty house at the west of Skye. Spacious and confortable, with two much-appreciated living-rooms with big panoramic windows, showing the extraordinary landscape outside.

We liked the silence and the view on the sea. The cottage was nice for 5 Persons. The dishwasher was out of order and the brush for the toilette was very spoiled and should be replaced. But all the other things were o.k. We liked all the guides and maps in the living room for planning our hiking tours!

We have stayed in this cottage for 9 days. We have had a absolute wonderfull time. The cottage needs some TLC (especially the couch in one the living rooms, and the bathroom). But for the rest the cottage was absolute fine. For 9 days it was our home away from home.

We have talked to the owner a couple of times, because of some heating problems, but everything was fixed a.s.a.p. Would recommend the accomodation and the area. It is not full of tourists, which was perfect in our opinion. We have met the most lovely people in this area. I wanted to give 5 stars, but because of the Bathroom I would give it 4 stars. For us the cottage was very big btw. Hide

If you are looking for a time away from all the noise of the city this is for you. The cottage itself was very calming perfect for a family even though we actually went as a group of 5 friends which was still brilliant. A few things we would say to anyone staying here would be, bring food to the cottage and prepare to cook as it is very far to get Read moreto anything around this area. Bring firewood and a lot of it. Apart from that this was such a relaxing holiday with beautiful views and at night you the sky was beautiful as due to the lack of light pollution you can see so much more stars than you can normally see in a busy city. There are sheep and deer everywhere around the cottage which was nice, just make sure you close the gate so they don't get in! Hide

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.
