About Sandpiper

Sandpiper is a modern holiday cottage on the Isle of Skye, constructed in the style of a traditional Hebridean cottage on the edge of Broadford Bay in Breakish. It's hard to imagine anywhere more relaxing than here, with spectacular views of the sea and the mountains. Sandpiper sleeps four people in two bedrooms, one ensuite, and is ideal for a romantic escape or a family holiday full of fun and adventure.

An island holiday is pretty special, especially when your destination is as beautiful as the Isle of Skye. The largest of the islands of the Inner Hebrides, Skye is only 50 miles long with nowhere more than five miles from the coast. It's compact enough to get around it all during your holiday yet large enough that you can always find space where you can sit in silence with no one around. At the end of the lane there is a track leading to Arndish, one of the best spots on the island to find fossils and spot otters. Breakish is only 15 minutes from the Skye Bridge and is convenient for the mainland while still feeling wonderfully remote. Walking around the coast reveals seals, waders, and herons that thrive in this pristine estuary, and don't be surprised to see a buzzard or an eagle hunting for their next meal. Other local footpaths lead to moorlands and mountains - the diversity of the landscape is as impressive as its beauty.

Sandpiper is only two miles from Broadford. As the second-biggest community on the Isle of Skye, it has a good selection of places to buy provisions for your self-catering holiday and dine out if you don't want to cook. Broadford is also a hub for boat trips, public transport, and equipment hire if you need a bicycle or a kayak.

Sandpiper is an idyllic waterfront cottage. It offers all of the space and privacy you could wish for yet is close enough to restaurants and shops for convenience. The owners have done a wonderful job creating a comfortable holiday home with accommodation all on one level that welcomes guests all year round. Please contact the owner directly for their accessibility statement.
