Find cottages in Isle of SkyeVisit Isle of Skye

The Isle of Skye, Scotland's second largest and amongst its most beautiful islands is situated just off the west Highland coast and conveniently connected to the mainland by the Skye Bridge or by ferry.

The island is renowned for its dramatic mountainous terrain, sea lochs and stunning coastline, pristine nature and rich cultural and historical heritage, providing one of the most exquisite cottage holiday breaks in Scotland.

Probably Skye's most recognised mountain formations are the Cuillin range, with its jagged peaks providing a challenge to mountain climbers from around the world and the strange rock formations and pinnacles found in the Trotternish peninsula. Further geographic wonders can be found just outside Portree at The Old Man of Storr. This rocky hill offers great views of the surrounding area, not to mention an enjoyable walking location. If you fancy slightly more of a challenge then we'd recommend the Quiraing, a landslip made up of stunning natural landmarks.

Wildlife abounds here; see dolphins, porpoises and minke whales from the shore at Neist Point, visit the Ring of Bright Water interactive wildlife visitor centre with a live otter webcam or maybe hop on a boat trip to Loch Dunvegan seal colony.

Skye has a fascinating history and any visit would not be complete without seeing Dunvegan Castle which dates back to the 14th century and has been the fortress castle of clan Macleod for hundreds of years. Also of interest is the extensive estate on the Sleat peninsula, Clan Donald Skye, where you'll find great walks through the beautiful estate, gardens, wildlife, wonderful views and a museum.

Situated by Loch Harport and with views of the Cuillins can be found the only distillery on the island. The Talisker distillery offers a fascinating insight into the heritage of Skye's only single malt along with the opportunity to sample what is often regarded as one of Scotland's finest whisky. Also of interest is The Aros Experience on the outskirts of Portree; here you can see exhibitions of film, music and wildlife.

The Isle of Skye is perfect for those after an active break, with plenty of open expanses and views to die for so if you'd like to begin planning you next trip take a look at our selection of holiday cottages on the Isle of Skye today.

Weaver’s Cottage Ref: 28511


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.
