The kitchen is well equipped with washing machine, dishwasher, tumble-dryer, built in cooker and microwave. In the cupboards you will find everything you need, if you would prefer to cook for yourselves.

If cooking is not your thing, the world renowned restaurant, The Three Chimneys and the Michelin star 'Ullinish Lodge' are all within easy reach of the cottage.

The water is from an underground well and will be the finest water you can drink! Free of chemicals and taken straight from source, it is the ideal accompaniment to a dram!

The bathroom is spacious and luxurious! Every detail has been thought of and it boasts a large free standing bath and separate shower cubicle. Luxury towels and dressing gowns are provided.

We are blessed with an abundance of wildlife locally, so as an alternative to driving further afield, we've provided mountain bikes which can be used to cycle the near-by 6 mile forestry track. Here you'll have every chance of seeing Eagles, Buzzards and Deer along with a host of flora and fauna. Down on the shoreline otters are common as well as a large variety of coastal bird life. At the cottage we've also provided fishing rods which can be 'tested' on the local lochs or river and, after all this activity, why not relax around the barbecue in the evening and watch the wildlife come to you!

Everything in Skye Crofters Cottage has been carefully thought about with the guest in mind.
