This fantastic property is surrounded by breathtaking glens, lush countryside and a striking landscape that has featured as the backdrop for many famous films.

Wonderfully bright and spacious, this dynamic home lends itself to sociable evenings spent relaxing with loved ones. Designed with a traditional Scottish longhouse in mind you are reminded of your fantastic location in this stunning corner of the country. Kick back in the heart of the home and admire views of the surrounding glen with a tipple or a book in hand. Fire up the wood burner for warmth or head outside to make the most of the fresh Scottish air on your escape from the everyday. Sleeping nine this home suits large families or groups of friends with a passion for the great outdoors. Four-legged friends are also welcome and will relish in the chance to roam the private garden come morning or night. They are also sure to find a favourite spot by the wood burner where tails and tummies can be kept toasty!

You could spend hours whiling away time in the gloriously spacious open-plan hub of the house. The vibrant lounge/kitchen/diner is beautifully styled with a sleek contemporary feel complemented by warm homely touches and a vaulted ceiling. Recline on the sofa and nestle down to watch a spot of TV or choose a book and immerse yourself in another world. The bright kitchen space is well-equipped for every occasion whether that is rustling up a picnic, whipping together a tasty treat or showcasing your culinary skills and experimenting with flavour to serve up a formal three-course meal. Raise a glass to special times at the table and savour your food before retiring to bed to rest your head. Two bedrooms are on the ground floor and a family bathroom offers you the chance to soak aching muscles. All bedrooms boast glen views so you can wake up and be whisked straight into holiday mode.

Climbing stairs to the first floor you will find the remaining bedrooms which also have glen views. Each room is decorated in fresh tones to create a tranquil space in which to unwind, doze and dream. Wake to feel revitalised and ready for the adventures which await and grab a quiet moment to yourself in the Minstrel gallery with lovely picture window and seating.

Having soaked up the peaceful atmosphere of this rural retreat, head 8 miles north to the Skye Museum of Island Life and step back in time to an old Highland village. Learn interesting facts about the way of life back in the 19th century and observe examples of thatched cottages, farming tools and equipment used for work. An archive tells fantastic tales of individuals and the whole museum experience is well worth a trip for family members both young and old. Now you know how the Isle of Skye used to look and run, travel 2.5 miles to the pier and jump on a boat to see how things have changed. Discover wonderful wildlife and spectacular scenery and keep your eyes peeled for puffins, sea eagles, seals and dolphins.

Hop on your bike and explore the Trotternish circuit, a 50 mile circuit passing through Uig. Choose the best route but be sure to cycle towards Staffin and gaze over the impressive Storr lochs. Navigate your way to Kilt Rock and take the time to stop and sip from your flask or snack on something tasty before continuing your ride.

This property is personally managed by Carol.

We had a great stay here for 4 nights in June to celebrate a family birthday. The house was lovely, had a well equipped kitchen and wonderful garden space. The Faerie Glen is just 10 minutes walk away which was convenient. The only suggestion was perhaps to be provided with a few extra towels. We would recommend this place and hope to stay there agRead moreain soon in the future! Hide

We greatly enjoyed our stay at Taobh an Uillt. The cottage is beautiful, and the view is incredible. Several evenings we BBQed (Lamb, Salmon, Beef) products which we picked up in Portree. We were two couples, thus had lots of space to spread out. We would highly recommend this property.

The Taobh an Uillt House was absolutely lovely. There were six adults, and the three spacious and comfortable bedrooms were great. There were two bedrooms upstairs, sharing a full bathroom. Downstairs were two bathrooms, one was an ensuite with a shower, the other a full bathroom with a tub, off the hall. The living area and kitchen were spacious aRead morend so well stocked with everything we needed to cook meals. There was a dishwasher and a full laundry facility. The two story windows and the cathedral ceiling over this whole area were stunning. Magnificent views. It is right near the Fairy Glen, so a beautiful area to walk. It is in the countryside in a farming community, with lots of great views. The sheep were everywhere, and in May the lambs were bounding about. Nearby is the small town of Uig, and it has a nice restaurant on the outskirts, and in town a grocery and pottery shop, as well as shops for the locals' needs. The wharf is interesting and the ferry links you with the Hebrides, if you wish to go. We kicked back and relaxed. We spent a day driving on a loop north and visited the Crofters' Village, a well preserved group of croft homes with lots of interesting artifacts. Another day we went to Portree and looped another set of roads, stopping where we wished. It was a great central location. The only thing I would do to improve the stay, would be to stay longer!!

Nice welcome mail from Ishbel with a lot of ideas for activities. The house was fully equipped and very cosy. A wonderful view from the living area and terrace.

There were seven of us including my daughter who is in a wheelchair. We were aware of the short staircase from the kitchen to the living area before we arrived. There were enough of us such that this was not a problem, but clearly not everybody would be able to deal with this. Outside of this item, chair access around the rest of the house couldn`tRead more be better. We all loved the house, its position and its location above Uig. We left a list of some things that needed addressing, all of a minor nature. The list was left in the spirit of hoping we were helping the owner by pointing them out. The Uig pottery down near the pier was worth a visit. The products were a cut above what we expected. It was our first time on Skye and we loved it and the house. Hide

This house is amazing from its value to its comfort. Along with having your home with you, you get amazing views both day and night. There was a great welcome from the cattle in the field and a very helpful owner/ caretaker on hand. We had an amazing time and house made it mark.

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.
