Sandpiper - Self catering holiday cottage, Waterloo, Broadford, Isle of Skye, Scotland - Sleeps 4
Sandpiper sleeps four guests and is a newly built luxury holiday cottage that sits in an enviable beautiful position right on the very edge of Broadford Bay. The first house to be built in this stunning spot for more than thirty years, Sandpiper has been designed from the outside to blend in with the older Hebridean cottages in the area. With stunning views across the bay to the Red Cuilins and across the sea to the Scottish mainland, this is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing holiday by the sea amongst spectacular scenery.
The cottage sits in a very peaceful position, nestling in half an acre of what is planned to be a wild flower meadow. There is seating to the front of the cottage and a picnic table and BBQ to the rear where it is more sheltered, allowing you to enjoy the fantastic views. Behind the cottage is croft land where cattle can be seen peacefully grazing against the backdrop of the hills in south Skye. You can watch beautiful sunrises from the back and spectacular sunsets from the front and the shore can be accessed just by walking across the quiet single track lane in front of the cottage.
Designed to maximise the enjoyment of the amazing views, there are many windows in Sandpiper which provide a wonderfully light and airy environment. The kitchen and lounge also both have French windows and the bedroom windows are low enough, that you could lie in bed and watch the tide coming in!
The area is very popular with bird watchers and if you are lucky you may also catch sight of an otter swimming past or perhaps searching through the seaweed for a tasty crab.
At the end of the lane a gate leads to a rough track and a good area to look for fossils. Half a mile walk in the other direction takes you to the nearest bar, which serves bar meals and take away food.
Broadford village with shops, cafes and restaurants is just two miles away and provides a great location from which to explore the rest of Skye and parts of the mainland. A visit to the picturesque tiny fishing village of Elgol is not to be missed and perhaps a boat trip to Loch Coruisk situated right below the awe inspiring Cuilin Ridge. This loch is considered by many to be the most beautiful place on Skye and is just waiting to be explored!
