A cosy, detached pet friendly cottage for two with wood burning stove. Situated at the foot of the famous Quiraing and Trotternish Ridge. It's a 10 min walk to the beach at Staffin Bay. Close to some of Skye's most iconic sights including the Old Man of Storr and Fairy Glen.

Ideal for couples and solo adventurers who will appreciate the easy access to some of the best walks on Skye. Also a perfect spot for writers who will appreciate the tranquility and distraction-free environment.

The space
If you're looking a place to get away from the stress of everyday life, you've found the right spot. Clean air, zero light pollution, and little noise, just the sound of bleating sheep. If you're lucky, you might catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights.

Disconnect completely for a few days, take a break from the internet (there is none!) and read one of the many novels on offer. The bothy has been set up as a place to relax and unwind. In addition to books, there are games to play and a selection of DVDs including a few Scottish classics such as Local Hero and Whisky Galore. Light the fire (big basket of logs supplied) and enjoy your evening.

The bothy is situated in the north of Skye on the road up to the Quiraing. From the garden, you will enjoy stunning views of the Quiraing and Trotternish Ridge. You are within easy driving distance of all the popular destinations including the Old Man of Storr, Fairy Glen, Duntulm Castle and about an hour from Talisker Distillery.

Dogs are welcome. The yard is securely fenced and they run around freely.

I've been in the Highlands for the last 15 years after moving up from Fife. Never looked back! Have spent a lot of time working on the west coast of Scotland in remote and spectacular areas and lived on Skye for the best part of 3 years. I am now based in Dornoch, another beautiful part of the country.
