A four-bedroom property in one of the prettiest parts of Skye, perfect for families or friends seeking a luxurious base from which to explore the delights of the island.

In the far north-west of the island, the idyllic hamlet of Glendale has a calm and friendly pace of life making this a restful holiday destination. Walks to suit all ages and abilities are on offer straight from your doorstep, enjoy shoreline strolls and have a paddle in the clear water, spot seabirds, dolphins and whales on a ramble to Neist Point Lighthouse, or be rewarded with spectacular views from Waterstein Head. Discover the blood-curdling legends of Dunvegan Castle (9 miles) and test your nerve in the creepy dungeons.

Nestled into the hillside and surrounded by open countryside dotted with white-washed crofter's cottages and grazing livestock, your rural retreat sits in a slightly elevated position offering fantastic views across the fields and farmland. Follow the driveway through the gardens and park next to your imposing holiday home. Step through the front door into the spacious entrance hall where there is plenty of space to hang up your coats and leave shoes and walking boots. Leave keys and wallets on the hallway table and head through into your inviting living room. Comfortable sofas invite you to sink into them, put your feet up and relax with a glass of wine in the evening. Play a family board game on the coffee table or light the wood burner and sit and chat late into the evening. For family movie nights, get the popcorn ready and head into the TV room. Gather together in the spacious kitchen/diner that stretches the length of the house, making this perfect for social mealtimes. A traditional wood burner makes this a cosy space the whole year through. Cook up a storm in the stylish contemporary kitchen that comes equipped with everything you could require, including double electric oven and electric hob, fridge, freezer and microwave. To ensure a comfortable stay, a dishwasher and washer/dryer are provided for your convenience. Off the kitchen is a handy utility area and second hallway with more hanging space.

This beautiful, clean and well furnished home was waiting for us after a long drive. We fell in love with the village and the Old Manse. The village has a general store and a wonderful cafe as well as many walks along the most beautiful scenery I have ever seen. It is so quiet and the room darkening curtains helped us to rest and to feel very comfoRead morertable. The kitchen is well equipped and large enough for all five of us to be making snacks and food at the same time. There is a large dining room with a table that seats eight and two living rooms that allowed the adults quiet time while the children watched movies and played games. This house and area were the highlights to our stay in Scotland. Hide

We rented this cottage 3 nights for 8 persons (family and friends) and it was just perfect to visit the isle of Skye. All the equipment (for cooking, bathrooms, lounge, ...) was in impeccable state. The view from the cottage is fantastic and absolutely quiet ! A good starting point for visiting and going for walks. You just have to drive carefully Read moreas the road leading to it is narrow, but in good condition, with regular places to pass each other. Only regret : we wished we could have stayed there longer ! Hide
