Merman Cottage is a converted traditional stone "Steading" on a croft, we are close to The Edinbane Inn, 8 miles from Dunvegan, 13 from Portree and an hour from the Skye bridge.
The cottage is a traditional 1 and a half story stone building, upstairs there is a double bedroom, a twin room and toilet accessed by a wooden spiral staircase. The ground floor is an open plan living, dining, kitchen area with a bathroom. There is a sea loch at the bottom of the croft. The cottage is cosy, safe and peaceful. It is a place to relax after a day on the hills or exploring Skye, the thick walls and crackling fire in the potbellied stove provide a haven to recharge your batteries in a busy world.
The entire house will be available to guests
Interaction with guests

Before living on Skye I lived and worked in a number of countries in Africa.
