This beautiful detached property has been tastefully renovated and retains many traditional features and charm, offering cosy country living with 21st century comfort with surrounding countryside views.

One of just a handful of residential homes on the remarkable Isle of Skye, a stay in this cottage ensures privacy, peace and quiet throughout your well-deserved break. A family of five guests are ideally suited to enjoying some quality time in this secluded home, enjoying walks amongst the rolling hills that surround it or a trip into Skye’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The home boasts an expertly thought out balance between modern and traditional style. Find contemporary pieces of design furniture, such as the stylish dining table and vibrant sofa, amongst feature fireplaces in the bedrooms. The resulting home is one filled to the brim with character and homely charm.

On arrival, head to the kitchen and stick the kettle on. Leaving the kitchen door wide open, you can enjoy far-reaching views of the surrounding hills, and the breakfast table is the ideal spot to enjoy a rest after a long trip. More formal evening dining can be enjoyed in the quality dining room, where fresh white walls create a bright and cheery atmosphere. After a long day on the Isle of Skye, you’ll desperately look forward to putting your feet up and getting engrossed in a good film, so switch on Sky TV and enjoy the warmth of the wood burner.

Cottage stairs lead onto the first floor, where you’ll find three bedrooms. Owing to the age of the home, all three of these rooms are compact and cosy. Get a good night’s sleep in two double bedrooms, or enjoy the privacy afforded in the cute single bedroom.

From the kitchen, you can head out onto a lovely enclosed garden with remarkable views over the pretty village of Glendale. Enjoy morning coffee or an evening tipple on the private patio.

Many head to the Isle of Skye to challenge themselves to the challenging Cuillin mountain range, an area which contains 11 Munros and 16 other summits to embark upon. This area covers a large space but is accessible around 30 miles away. Those looking for a less difficult outdoor excursion can enjoy walking and cycling routes along the Isle of Skye coast, which begins a mere 1 mile from home.

At the waterside, the local Loch Pooltiel (1 mile) is a great place to fish for pollock, cod, dogfish and more. Whilst heavy rain on your holiday is often a bad thing, here at Loch Pooltiel it often results in a huge waterfall cascading off one of Skye's highest cliffs, a stunning sight. These steep cliffs are home to many wild seabirds, so bring your binoculars along and keep your eyes peeled.

Fans of Scotland's finest export will enjoy a trip to the popular Talisker Distillery, 26.5 miles away. Head here for a tour of the distillery, enjoyable tastings and a place to grab a bottle or two to take home with you.

Another stunning day out is a trip to the local Dunvegan Castle (8.5 miles), leading on to the remarkable Coral Beach (12.5 miles). This unique beach is made up of crushed white coral, and when the sun comes out, the waters light up into a remarkable turquoise on a bright white background. Head here for a brisk swim or lovely family picnic.

The house is located in a quiet spot. It's cosy, well appointed and a great base to come home to at the end of a day's exploring. The fire was a focal point to relax in front of after dinner.

What a wonderful sight! Sitting in the kitchen and looking at the Glendale valley is really great. Dozens of sheep welcome you on the Croft in the morning. Whatever youd like to cook - no problem in the well equipped kitchen. Relaxing after long hikes is easy in the cosy living room, and you wont have bad dreams in the comfortable beds.

Charming home with comfortable furnishings and views of the countryside. First time on the Isle of Skye for us so cannot compare to other similar accommodations. Well equipped kitchen. Comfortable living area with wood stove. Comfortable beds. Small but well-stocked grocery and very nice cafe a 2 minute walk away.

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.
