Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
The Anchorage in the fishing village of Kyleakin, Isle of Skye is our family owned recently-refurbished holiday cottage located in a magical location overlooking the Kyle of Lochalsh (nb the iconic bridge from the mainland means no ferry to worry about!).

Abundant wildlife, (otters and seals regularly in the garden or water right outside the house) stunning mountains and sunsets, and wilderness. All the awesome beauty of this stunning Scottish island. 5* Superhost reviews!

The space
The cottage garden has a gate which leads from the right on to the high tide line making an ideal spot to fish or just sit and watch the yachts, ships, naval vessels and fishing boats come and go. Opposite is the lighthouse-keeper’s cottage Eilean Bàn where author Gavin Maxwell (Ring of Bright Water) lived.

Kyleakin is perfectly situated on Skye, just a few minutes from the bridge and within easy reach of the many holiday attractions of the island. Although very peaceful, there is always something going on in the channel or the fishing harbour and marina around the corner.

The Anchorage is a two bedroom holiday cottage and is cosy enough to accommodate either one or two couples but spacious enough for a family of up to four people (plus single camp bed for a fifth on request).

Absolutely no smoking or pets please - the otters dislike both!

**Please note that due to dangerous rocks and direct sea access we cannot accommodate children under the age of ten **

Easy going and happily married to my darling wife Charlotte for 36 years with four fabulous children. Love the outdoors, mountains, sailing and good food/wine/company. I enjoy single malt whisky and Apple products. Hate smoking and litter. Like Van Morrison, Amy Winehouse, James Morrison and Ed Sheeran. I live in Cheltenham in beautiful Gloucestershire, with a holiday home in Skye. I often travel on business as a real estate trainer/consultant and Airbnb suits me perfectly in locations all over the world.
