About The Sheiling Skye

The Sheiling Skye is a romantic wooden cabin on the Isle of Skye, with amazing views of Loch Dunvegan, the Cuillin Mountains and the Isle of Harris. The holiday cottage is the perfect place to escape if you're feeling frazzled. However, you don't need to feel stressed to appreciate the calming magic of this landscape or the quiet location on a private, 18-acre croft with woodland walks, panoramic vistas and a path that leads directly to the loch. The Sheiling Skye is furnished to a high standard, with couples enjoying luxurious bedding, handmade toiletries, and a sense of peace that is impossible to find when caught up in the busyness of daily life.

The cottage is on Skye's Duirinish Peninsula. It's incredibly peaceful yet not so remote that you have to travel for ages to get anywhere. You can see across the water to the Waternish Peninsula, Dunvegan Castle and Coral Beach from the wide sheltered deck, inspiring you with plans for your day as you eat your breakfast outdoors in nice weather. The jaw-dropping views don't stop when the sun goes down. The absence of light pollution amplifies the brilliance of the night skies, while the northerly location means you have a good chance to witness the Northern Lights.

There is a village shop and two cafes in Glendale, a five-minute drive from the cottage with more variety 15 minutes away in Dunvegan. The famous Three Chimneys restaurant is also within a short drive. You'll need to book in advance of your arrival, but a meal here is the ideal way to celebrate something special.

While it's reasonable to assume that people don't come to the Isle of Skye for the excitement and nightlife, that doesn't mean there isn't still plenty to do on the island. Spend days exploring its rugged landscape on foot or bicycle, stopping along the way to admire the incredible views that can include sightings of seals, whales, dolphins, otters, red deer, white-tailed sea eagles, amongst others. Rocky peaks attract climbers who come for the challenge of The Cuillin Range and The Trotternish Ridge. There is also a huge choice of footpaths accessible to less-experienced walkers. As the biggest of the Hebridean islands, Skye has always been an important Highland location. Clans MacDonald and MacLeod both have castles on the island, with other attractions including the Fairy Pools and Talisker Distillery (a must for whisky lovers!).

The Sheiling Skye is somewhere you can relish spending all day outdoors being active or where you can be completely content moving no further than the deck. Everything about the property encourages you to slow down, relax and enjoy the magnificent surroundings. It's available for bookings all year round.

Location (The Scottish Islands)

Accommodation Comprises:

The Sheiling Skye is on a working croft, surrounded by 18 acres of private land with no neighbours. There are steps leading to the cottage but it's all on one level once you're inside.

  • Open plan living/dining area with multi-aspect double glazed windows that look out onto the deck. It's a light, wood-filled space that almost makes it feel as if you're outdoors even when you're snuggled on the sofa with the warming flames of the log burner. There's a Smart TV with Freesat channels, a wireless Sonos sound system and the cottage has WiFi. There are books and information about the local area to help you plan your days.
  • Small but functional kitchen which makes efficient use of the space. While not equipped for cordon bleu cooking (The Three Chimneys is down the road for that) it has everything you'll need to cook and serve simple and delicious meals.
  • Bedroom with more amazing views you can enjoy from the comfort of the kingsize bed with its luxury Sealy mattress and high thread count Egyptian cotton bed linen.
  • Ensuite with a shower, WC and a handbasin. Thick, soft towels and locally sourced handmade toiletries are included.

Outside: There is seating on the sheltered deck, a footpath leading to the loch, and off-street parking.

Additional Information: Utilities, WiFi, bed linen and bath towels are provided. An initial basket of fuel for the log burner is also included. Pets and smoking are not permitted.
