Newly refurbished, but sustaining all the charm of a traditional Skye croft house, Cnoc Uaine offers a warm welcome from the moment you arrive. With a double and a twin room, as well as a double bed settee, up to 6 can enjoy the wonderful island scenery in true comfort.

The space

Standing prominently in the picturesque village of Peinchorran, Cnoc Uaine, takes its name from the green hill on which it sits.

Facing east, it offers the opportunity to witness many spectacular sunrises over the island of Raasay and the distant peaks of Wester Ross. To the south and across Loch Sligachan, Glamaig - one of the Red Cuillin mountains – towers over the loch and the scenic village of Sconser. To the south west Sgurr nan Gillean, one of the better known peaks of the infamous Black Cuillin, marks a starting point of the formidable ridge. Countless breath taking vistas, irrespective of the weather, create the most stunning panorama from Cnoc Uaine.

This newly renovated croft house has belonged to our family since it was originally built more than 100 years ago and we have endeavoured to maintain its warm character. The downstairs comprises of a cosy sitting room - including a double bedsetee for any extra guests – spacious kitchen/dining room and toilet.

The two bedrooms upstairs, one double and one twin, epitomise the atmosphere of the house which is further emphasised by the light and airy toilet/shower room.

Television, docking station and free Wi-Fi are provided and there is ample parking.

We ask you to respect our no smoking policy within the house and regrettably, we cannot accept pets.

Etta and her cottage were amazing : - beautiful location far away from any noise but close enough to Portree to move easily, surrounded by awesome sheeps and stunning landscape - a clean, well-designed, beautifully decorated cottage with everything to enjoy his stay (books, information about walks, wifi...) - perfectly equipped house (kitchen for the ones who love to cook, astonishing view from a beautiful bathroom, a high quality bedding) - hosts who take care of you, multiple communication and pieces of advice before/during/after our stay I recommend this cottage more than anything! Thank you again Etta!

My favourite airbnb ever, loved it! Etta was amazing, the cottage feels isolated yet is only a short drive to portree, the views are incredible and the cottage is warm, extremely comfortable and has all the mod cons you need. I would highly recommend to anyone visiting isle of Skye. Thanks Etta

A really beautiful house and location. Etta was the most thoughtful host, leaving a welcome basket with essentials (and wine and fudge!) was really sweet. Can't fault the amazing view from every room!

This is a top notch cottage for a stay on the Isle of Skye! The cottage is very luxurious and cozy. It's about a 20 minute drive to Portree on a very quite road from where you can visit everything Skye has to offer (which is a lot!). Suitable for both families or a group of friends (we were with 4 friends). We did not see Etta, but she left a welcome gift for us which was very nice. Would definitely recommend this place for a stay on Skye!
