Property code: CA293

Charming 1830s cottage that's been fully modernised to provide a stylish, contemporary space for two. Unwind and discover the beauty of the Isle of Skye.

This wonderfully converted 19th-century cottage can be found in the small village of Tarskavaig. Walkers regularly follow a route past the house to access the small and secluded sandy bay, a wonderful spot for dog walking or relaxing. Take in beautiful views of Rum, Eigg and Canna islands whilst there. Walk along the coast to the ruins of Dunscaith Castle for more of these stunning views, or head across the bay for Spar Cave. Under 10 miles you'll find yourself at the less ruined Armadale Castle with beautiful gardens to enjoy, and the Torabhaig Distillery can also be visited on this side of the island. Head to local village Arvasar for a pub, restaurant and shops.

Enter into the open-plan living space on the ground floor and immediately notice the vaulted ceilings, exposed wooden beams and original stone walls, all nicely contrasted with contemporary furnishings and bright colours. Large skylights allow light to flood into the property. To one side of the room, the lounge centres around a TV/DVD player, perfect for a cosy night in. To rustle up that romantic dinner for two, the kitchen can be found to the other side of the room on a unique mezzanine-style platform. This stylish kitchen boasts a fridge with ice box, electric hob and oven, microwave, washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher. Settle into the small dining table or make use of the larger dining area in the centre of the room. Downstairs you'll find a spacious double bedroom and modern shower room with WC and towel heating radiator. The bedroom has patio doors leading out onto the garden.

The garden offers both a gravel drive and lawn, with outdoor picnic furniture for enjoying food and drinks on summer evenings. Parking for one car is available on-site.

Great place to stay for peace and quiet. Fantastic sea views from out of the cottage window. Lots of walks nearby. The ferry and a great local shop and garage are just a scenic drive away. Lovely lady owner. Wonderful.

Cottage was very comfortable and clean. The owners of the cottage just stay next door and were very approachable and courteous. Location of the cottage was perfect, so quiet and peaceful. There was also a beach about a 5 minute walk away and also lovely coastal walks.

Rum View cottage been renovated to a very high standard while being sympathetic to the authenticity of the original building and is similarly of a high standard in relation to cleanliness, comfort and equipment. The owner was very welcoming and knowledgeable about the area and Skye in general. A very good choice for relaxation and coastal views. ThRead moree road to Tarskavaig, Tokavaig and Ord is not for the faint hearted but well worth it when you arrive. Good base for exploring all Sleat has to offer Hide

The cottage is a perfect base to explore the south of the island. The beach and headland at the end of the lane provide spectacular views. The cottage has everything you need for a very comfortable and enjoyable holiday. We would certainly use it again.

Rum View was awesome..peaceful and secluded yet comfortable and welcoming. Furnished to a very high standard, it had all that was needed to hide away for a wonderful week. Views across the sea to Rum were almost as good as those of the Cullins from the headland. Janet and Donald (the owners) were friendly and had plenty of information about the hisRead moretory of the cottage and Tarskavaig, but were never intrusive. Network access was reliable and fast enough (few Mbits). Hide
