Situated in a tranquil spot on the northern side of the island, this idyllic property offers a wonderful retreat for a couple or young family on the beautiful Isle of Skye.

Set against a backdrop of rolling mountains and open skies, this cosy white-washed cottage is a tranquil retreat for families seeking an escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Just a short walk from the enchanting hills and lochans of Fairy Glen, spend the day exploring its mystical landscape. Rugged mountain walks, stunning shoreline strolls and ancient ruins are within easy reach of this secluded cottage, and for days when civilisation calls, shops and pubs are less than 2 miles away.

Approached down a quiet lane, this compact cottage has a bright and contemporary feel, decorated in muted tones with bright accents of colour. Windows look out onto open countryside and rolling hills, offering ever-changing vistas as the light plays across the landscape.

Entering into the cottage, the cosy sitting room is a warm and inviting space with plump sofa and comfortable chairs. On cooler evenings, light the open fire and unwind in its gentle warmth. Prepare yourself a delicious meal of local produce in the well-equipped galley kitchen with views across the countryside from the glazed door. When it’s time to retire to bed, the master king-size bedroom can be found off the hallway and the family bathroom is on this level also.

Take the stairs to the first-floor landing which has been made into a snug/book corner for younger guests to curl up with a magical story before heading into their beds. The two single bedrooms are charming with sloping ceilings and Velux windows filling the rooms with natural light.

Outside, sit with your morning coffee and watch the birds swooping overhead or fire up the BBQ for a sociable meal late into the evening, watching the colours changing on the dramatic landscape.

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

The area surrounding the cottage is ideal for outdoor enthusiasts and keen walkers. One of Skye's most popular tourist destinations, the magical landscape of Fairy Glen (0.5 miles) offers winding routes through its gentle hills and hidden lochans. Climb up to the top of Castle Ewan for wonderful views and seek out the hidden cave where you may be rewarded with good luck.

The peaceful village of Uig (1 mile) offers a general store, welcoming pub and restaurant serving local produce and freshly caught fish. Visit the Uig Pottery and pick up a unique souvenir of your stay with one of their hand-finished pieces inspired by the land and sea. Catch the ferry to Lochmaddy or Tarbert on the Outer Hebrides to discover the wild beauty of these islands.

Walking routes for all abilities can be found close to the cottage. Lace up your walking boots for the challenging ridge walk along the Trotternish Ridge (14 miles) to be rewarded with spectacular views across the countryside and coastline. Wander through the wild garlic and bluebells at Uig Wood keeping your eyes peeled for the elusive woodcock and barn owls sheltering in the trees. Follow the sound of thundering water through the trees to discover the spectacular double cascade at Rha Glen. Take a pleasure cruise from the harbour of bustling Portree (16 miles) in search of whales, dolphins, seals and porpoises before feasting on fish and chips sat on the harbour wall.

This property is personally managed by Carol.

This is a gorgeous, cute cottage. Well appointed and full of mod cons. Despite rural location, wi fi is excellent and a large selection of tv channels are available. A lot of thought and care has gone into the interior design of the house and the fabrics and furnishings are comfortable and welcoming. For a fantastic meal and great gin selection, trRead morey The Ferry Inn, 2 minutes drive from the cottage in Uig. Hide

Clean, comfortable, well situated cottage with everything we needed. Information pack gave ideas and recommendations, as well as maps and books. Would recommend Ella's Cafe in the village for lunch or just coffee and cake, and Bog Myrtle in Struan. Scenery fantastic, had a great holiday here.

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.
