This is one of a few places in the area that has this feature.

Our small 196 yr old cottage is by beautiful sea & mountains - good for 'getting away from it all' to explore unspoilt nature. We serve a continental breakfast with a lovely sea view. Tarskavaig is wonderfully peaceful & remote (no shops or restaurants in the village), 8 miles from Armadale port. Enjoy birdsong, peace & quiet. Graham is a professional landscape photographer. We can't offer wi-fi (extremely limited broadband) & there's little to no mobile signal locally; it's digital detox time!

Penny has created an oasis of calm. Lovely twin room with ensuite facilities. Lots of charm and lovely gestures like the little treats when you arrive. Very remote but I am so glad we stayed here rather than in a town as I felt we got to see the real Skye. Breakfast is first…
