Best Features

This cottage lies on the most wonderful waterfront site where you can launch your own boats/kayaks straight off the grass on Spring tides. We have tried to cater for everyone - superbly equipped for self-catering - you like to cook? we provide cookbooks and all necessary utensils and electric equipment: from superb new cooker with eco function, fridge, microwave, freezer, to fondue set, cake tins, and barbecue set.

We are immensely proud of our Green Tourism Silver Award gained for having energy efficient white goods; using and supplying green cleaning materials; adopting water and heat saving activities, such as sheep's wool insulation, blackout blinds on all windows, and encouragement for visitors to reduce their carbon footprint by sign-posting to local activities and public transport, and by the supply of locally sourced wood for use in the extremely efficient wood-burner. We support our local charity - the International Otter Survival Fund, by adopting otters and providing a collection box in the cottage - if you are really lucky you will be able to watch one from the sitting room window! We have provided bird feeders to encourage the myriad garden birds who visit us daily, together with binoculars and guidebooks to help you identify them. We have an extensive supply of guidebooks and suggestions as to how you can spend your time on Skye, without having to visit the "honey spots".

And if the weather really isn't your friend, we do have super fast broadband, and have a wide selection of DVDs and lots of books to read, curled up next to the wood-burner.

Sleeps: from 1 to 6

Cottage Review: (UK)
‘Twas late in the year of 2019
Four Midlanders wanted a real change of scene
We left our houses, all warm and dry
And headed up North to the Isle of Skye
We went on a boat trip which left from Elgol
Over grass, mud and black rocks, we took a nice stroll
And somehow we didn’t break too many bones
As we stumbled and slipped on the set stepping stones
We saw the lighthouse, standing proud at Neist Point
The Boreraig village did not disappoint.
We stood out for hours on three freezing nights
But saw no sign at all of the Northern Lights
Our cottage in Breakish came right up to scratch
Neither wee mice nor oysters did we actually catch
We’re confident that, however you try,
You won’t find a better place anywhere on Skye.

Cottage Review: (UK) Thank you for another superb stay at your lovely cottage. Children enjoyed playing in the garden and on the shore. As a chef for fifty years I found the oven the best of any holiday cottage we have stayed in. Once again another great stay on Skye – the weather was stunning as the last visit.

Cottage Review: (UK) Thank you for a lovely cottage. We were very comfortable and felt at home straight away. Lovely to look at the view and watch the tide coming and going. This was not our first visit to Skye (too many to count!) but it certainly won’t be our last. Hope to come back again soon. Thank you.

Cottage Review: (UK)We’ve had a wonderful few days on the Isle fo Skye. Cottage is beautiful and we’ve felt so at home. We’ve been utterly spoilt with the weather making for amazing sunrises and sunsets to watch from the cottage. J has loved watching out for birds at the feeders and playing with the games! Thank you!

Cottage Review: (Germany) As part of a round trip through Scotland we stayed here for three nights. We loved this beautiful cottage and its setting from the beginning. We didn’t have much time, but we visited some very beautiful places on this wonderful island. On our first day we went to Kylerhea where we saw many seals, oystercatchers, herons and cormorants. Thank you that we could use your binoculars, so it was a fantastic experience for us and our 8 and ten year old girls. IN the afternoon we visited the “Fairy Pools”. What a wonderful place. Don’t forget to take your swimsuit with you – and something that keeps away the midges if you go there in the evening. On our second day, we did a hiking tour to and around the “Old Man of Storr”. The weather was perfect and so we had fantastic views over the island. At last, we also visited Kilt Rock. WE had a great time here. Thanks you , that we would stay in your amazing cottage, Everything was so well organised and considered. We missed nothing here and would like to stay longer.

Cottage Review: (UK) A stormy week to say the least. However it didn’t spoil our 2nd visit to Skye although it did curtail our walking so will have to return again. Recommend An Crubh (shop, café, post office) on way to Sleat excellent community initiative, Dunvegan Castle garden, Eilean Iarmain Hotel/pub and scenery. Thanks again.

Cottage Review: (France) Charmante maison – les paysages de Skye ont l’air superbes hélas mais nous n’avons pu en profiter ! Pluie, brouillard et froid: un vrai temps de d’Ecosse ! Le matin nous partons sous un beau soleil. See you soon Skye!

Cottage Review: (Germany)We had a wonderful week on this lovely island…we saw such a lot of beautiful locations and the weather was great all the time. We enjoyed the stay in your cute and comfortable house and it’s hard to leave now… We fed the birds outside and while having breakfast, we enjoyed to watch the birds and their young ones having their breakfast, too. Thanks a lot we’re sure that we will return here!

Cottage Review: (Canada) It will be difficult to put into words the feelings and enjoyment we’ve had there these few days but I’ll try! The boys (me too) love the cottage itself, layout, décor…and its location is perfect! My husband is proud of himself for finding Oystercatchers. We all felt at home, relaxed and conzy right away. And thank you for being so organised and informative! This trip with the four of s has been wonderful so far and God has blessed us in so may ways with this outing. Thank you for making this part so special!
