This stylish lodge is nestled in a peaceful location, enjoying spectacular valley and mountain views in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, on the magical Isle of Skye.

This luxurious lodge is nestled in an elevated position on a beautiful working croft, with breathtaking views over the MacLeod’s Tables and the Trotternish Ridge.

Cook in the well-equipped kitchen with an electric oven and gas hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and coffee machine.
