Property Description

Nestling at the base of a small heather clad hillock, Hill Cottage enjoys breathtaking views across the water towards Dunvegan Head. Visitors can enjoy a brisk walk to the top of Waterstein Head for a chance to spot a golden eagle, or wander the clifftops and rocky shoreline in search of whales, dolphins or peregrine falcons. Further afield are castles, museums, art galleries and distilleries. Shops 3 miles, pub and restaurant 10 miles.

Spacious, open-plan living/dining room with wood-burning stove and well-equipped kitchen area. Double bedroom with 5ft bed and en-suite bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet. Twin bedroom. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Lovely modern, well kept cottage in faboulous location. June 2012.
  2. Very special location with excellent views and a very high standard in fittings en fixtures and very clean. May 2012.
  3. If you want a peaceful break away from it all, this is the cottage for you. The views are amazing and there are lots of walks around the area. You can watch seals in Loch Poolteil and we had our own pet hare to watch in the evenings! The cottage is cosy - we lit the stove every night - and really well equipped. The village shop has most things but take your own fresh veggies! A great escape in beautiful surroundings! March 2012.
  4. Enclosed garden was great for the dog, and the sea views were fantastic! Nov 2011.
  5. Stunning views. Very self contained and slightly apart from other properties which is good for those seeking a remote property that isn’t isolated. Cottage extraordinarily warm even without wood burning stove as central heating extraordinarily efficient. Entrance hall is reasonably large which is great for discarding outdoor clothes/shoes etc and great for containing the dogs. Garden is large and fenced so again great for dogs. Well-equipped. Only comment would be that the lounge could use a mat or rug in the seating area to make it more cosy. Oct 2011.
  6. We really loved the cottage - it was comfortable and clean with a well equipped kitchen. The garden was great for our dog who enjoyed running around in the heather. The views from the cottage windows are fabulous and the cottage is set back from the other houses in the village so you really feel away from it all. I would thoroughly recommend Hill Cottage and would not hesitate to book again. Sept 2011.
  7. Hill Cottage makes the ideal base for touring Skye, while at the same time providing a sense of having got away from it all. The views over the sound and out toward the Outer Hebridies are fantastic, and there is plenty to do; from walking and fishing in the harbour in Milovaig to fine dinning at The Three Chimneys only a short drive away. July 2011.
  8. Property has excellent layout internally for 2 groups making up a party as there is one bedroom and one bathroom each end of the cottage. Steep drive could be difficult with small, heavily laden car. Excellent, large, dog proof fenced garden. Probably more suited to active people as lovely walks straight from cottage door, although I could have sat and enjoyed the view from the cottage living room for hours if i was house bound and had binoculars. July 2011.
  9. We liked the remote location and facilities. Oct 2010.
  10. Simple open plan living, kitchen, dining, made holidaying easy and sociable. Aug 2010.
  11. Overall, the property was clean and well equipped. The location was fantastic. Aug 2010.
  12. Cleanliness, furnishings excellent. July 2010.
  13. Liked the property matched what we were expecting from the photos and description that we were left alone and not bothered also the feeling of home away from home. June 2010.
  14. Excellent position and views, garden terrific fir dog, great space, well appointed. April 2010.
  15. This was our 3rd Xmas in Isle of Skye, Hill Cottage was best accommodation we have booked so far. Ideal location from which to explore the Island and property was presented superbly. Dec 2009.
  16. Well constructed and serviced, very easy to settle into, warm and comfortable. Oct 2009.
  17. It is a lovely house and very roomy for 4 people. Very well equipped and very cosy - wonderfully insulated. Beds very comfortable - will certainly return to this house and would highly recommend it. Oct 2009.
  18. Take time to explore area. Great walks nearby. July 2009.
  19. Perfect hideaway for getting away from the every day hussle and bussle of life. March 2009.
  20. Very good with everything required, safe for children with enclosed garden. All round facilities great. July 2009.
