Property Description

This traditional cottage, which was once the home of the last weaver to work in this part of Skye, faces the Trotternish hills and from the grounds there are glorious views to the Outer Hebrides. Inside, the cottage has a cosy and homely character. There is a large kitchen with a dining table to swap holiday stories around and the sitting room has an open fire. Attached to the owners’ croft house but remaining private, it makes a comfortable base from which to explore this remote part of the Misty Isle. Walks are possible straight from the front door, go through the nearest gate and head for the hills. Visitors have spotted whales, seals, otters, basking sharks, dolphins and eagles, all within a few miles of the cottage and in the winter months a few lucky guests may be treated to a spectacular display of the Northern Lights. Weaver’s Cottage is just north of Uig which has a shop, a petrol station and a couple of good pubs and restaurants. It is the ferry port to the Outer Hebrides and you can arrange a day trip to these remote islands. Close by is the Museum of Island life, an educational visit with traditional stone and thatch cottages filled with pictures and artefacts. There are two castles nearby. One at Duntulm is three miles north of the cottage. It’s next to the Duntulm pub, so it is best to combine a trip here with a lunchtime meal. The castle consists of a small ruin, which is not very impressive, but it’s free, and the views are lovely! At Waternish there is Dunvegan Castle. This is a real castle, still lived in, and the seat of the Macleod clan. It has Claymores, oil paintings, four poster beds, and the famous Fairy Flag. Portree is about half an hour away. This is where you can shop for your food supplies or local crafts and don’t forget to try the fish and chips down by the harbour. This breathtaking area is ideal for walking, wildlife spotting or just watching the sun go down. Every lay-by to and from this part of the world offers a postcard view to take your breath away. If you can tear yourself away from the island, The Isle of Skye bridge opens up the whole of the mainland to explore or you can still travel by ferry to Glenelg where the well preserved Brochs, iron age dwellings, can be found. The Capital of the Highlands, Inverness, is an easy day trip away. Shop, pub and restaurant 5 miles.
