About Fisherman's Loft

Located in a stunning position on the water’s edge in the south west corner of the Isle of Skye, Fisherman’s Loft is the perfect retreat for anyone looking for a slice of Scottish paradise. With views from every window of the hills, sea and mountains, this lovingly restored fisherman’s cottage is a true gem. Brave souls can enjoy an early morning dip, or simply enjoy your breakfast overlooking the sea from the balcony of the cottage. With two en-suite bedrooms and a sofa bed for two extra guests, this is the perfect hideaway for couples, families or friends at any time of the year.

The Isle of Skye is well known for its breathtaking coastal and mountainous scenery and the Fisherman’s Loft, located in the secluded hamlet of Ord on the Sleat Peninsula, will certainly not disappoint. Sitting just ten yards from the sea you will enjoy uninterrupted views across Loch Eishort and beyond to the majestic Cuillin mountains. Often described as the Garden of Skye, the Sleat Peninsula has an abundance of spectacular views and wildlife. Otters and seals are seen regularly - you might even spot a sea eagle. Whisky fans should visit Torabhaig distillery in Teangue whilst those wanting to learn more about the history and culture of the area should visit Armadale Castle and the Museum of the Isles.

Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy a new activity each day on the Isle of Skye. From hiking on the infamous Cuillin ridge to family walks along the dramatic coastline, there is something to suit all abilities. Alternatively, try your hand at rock climbing in the Black Mountains, kayaking or wild swimming in the lochs and seas or follow in the footsteps of Danny MacAskill on the huge number of mountain bike tracks. Whatever you decide to do you cannot fail to be captivated by the raw beauty of this magical island.

The Fisherman’s Loft is about fifteen miles from the village of Broadford where you will find a variety of restaurants, shops and cafes, and forty two miles from Portree, the capital of the island. It is easy to reach from the mainland via the Skye Bridge or take the ferry from Mallaig to Armadale.
