The Little Skye Bothy

Your own piece of tranquility in our Little Skye Bothy, with outstanding views to the loch and the mountains. The pod has kitchen facilities, 2 ring hob and microwave (no oven).

There is an oil filled heater, table and chairs, TV for watching DVD's (there is no signal for local or national channels) and wifi is available

What guests are saying:

“The little bothy is a lovely, unique place to stay. It's beautiful and Nicky's hospitality was the best part - she was always reachable via text for any questions (and she was nice enough to welcome us with a bottle of Prosecco and call restaurants both evenings we were there so we knew where we could go and eat - both places were SO yummy as well). Visiting in February was not the best month (we had Storm Dennis raging around us and the weather was mostly terrible), but we were snug in the bothy, even if the heating was a little weird to regulate (even though Nicky clearly showed us how to use it, we kept over/under heating the place - our fault though!). Visiting when it's mostly good weather would definitely be divine - the long-ish drive from the main road in Broadford to the bothy was a little scary at times when there was heavy fog, but all OK if you drive slowly and carefully. It's amazing how thoughtfully Nicky has laid out the place - it's tiny, but has so many amenities and even some little games (which we took advantage of) and a kitchen. Highly recommended.”

Dark Skye Cottage

A truly one of a kind private holiday cottage located on the breathtakingly beautiful and mystical Isle of Skye. Dark Skye Cottage offers the perfect romantic getaway for two who want to escape the buzz of everyday life for a holiday on one of Scotland’s most sought after Islands. It offers the perfect balance of seclusion while still only a short walk from one of Skye’s most desirable villages.

What guests are saying:

“We stayed in Dark Skye Cottage in late January, so got a great deal out of season. We arrived to an immaculately clean cottage, with the wonderful under floor heating on so the place was nice and cosy upon arrival. On the way up the road (we were travelling to Skye from Glasgow) Fiona texted me to warn of a possible road closure, which was a very nice thing to do and really adds that "human touch" so often missing in other places. This thoughtfulness was again apparent with the lovely welcome hamper left for our arrival, with some local goodies (I wont spoil the surprise!) and some fresh eggs from their very own croft! Lovely touches that really go a long way. Dark Skye cottage itself is gorgeous - exceptionally well designed, and the attention to detail throughout is very apparent - ergonomically laid out to a high finish, and really well thought out lighting, which can be altered considerably (and easily). There are modern, easy to use appliances and abundant hot water. The cottage is actually far larger than the pictures give the impression of, and there is more than enough room to feel spacious whilst still being cosy and intimate - we felt at home as soon as we walked through the door, which is a great indication of how nice a space it is. It is extremely well insulated and brightly lit in the daylight, with great views from every window. The decoration and artwork is lovely and very tasteful as well - attention to detail in every regard throughout the cottage is outstanding - a lot of thought and design has gone into the building and it really shows. Dark Skye is literally a 5 min drive from the local shops, so getting supplies was quick and easy. Broadford is an ideal central location on Skye and the cottage is immediately at hand - but still far enough removed from the road to feel "away from it all" - so the best of both worlds, close amenities, and also remoteness with nice views - ideal. This is a long review, but I really wanted to give Dark Sky and it's hosts Gordon & Fiona the recognition they all deserve - you will get a first class experience here - in every regard, and the high end location and service really enhances your experience of staying on the island. A real first class experience. We absolutely loved it and will very likely return in the future. If you are swaying as to whether to book it or not, just go ahead and do so - I promise you will love it!”

What guests are saying:

“After our cruise was cancelled and no other acceptable alternatives we were delighted to discover availability for this amazing house for our 50th wedding anniversary. The house is aptly named “The View” as this is undoubtably the greatest asset of the property and is a fantastic 180 degree panorama. The house is very well furnished and equipped with everything you could think of in kitchen utensils available to satisfy anyone wanting to cook for themselves. Plenty of comfortable seating options, upstairs and downstairs, make it difficult to choose the best spot to enjoy the ever changing sea views. The house has underfloor heating downstairs, radiators upstairs and a wood stove in the lounge which we used in the late evenings just to add to the ambience despite it being July. The Bose Bluetooth sound box was great but we had no need for the big tv upstairs as we were fully entertained by the ever changing skies, mountains, seas, boats and birds. Even had a visit from a pine Martin one night. The garden is nice for wander around but with one side being at the edge of a cliff is definitely not for kids, dogs or the faint hearted. If we had to pick a favourite spot it would be the bench at the bottom of the garden with best of the views.”
