Holiday Rental House
This beautiful 18th century cottage has a large garden across from the terrace that extends right down to the shore, a wonderful place from where to watch the famous Waternish sunsets: a majestic seascape with the backdrop of the Western Isles dotted like jewels along the horizon. The cottage itself is equally as atmospheric, built in 1750 with many period features and an open fire for those cooler nights. If only the 3ft thick stone walls could speak they would tell of many a clan battle or Highland skirmish! 50 metres from the property is a 'Dark Sky' location where you can look at the incredible stars and if you are lucky see the Northern Lights. Wonderful location for Michelin starred Loch Bay restaurant and the oldest Inn on Skye. Both within steps of the cottage.

About the neighbourhood
Waternish is a beautiful peninsula with a number of excellent craft businesses working there. The coastal scenery is spectacular looking over to the Western Isles. Dunvegan is 8 miles away, where there is a good array of shops for your grocery needs, a couple of excellent bakeries, plus a number of cafes and restaurants. Petrol can also be obtained here. Portree is 22 miles way, the capital of Skye, certainly worth a day's trip to.
Getting around
A car is a real necessity to enjoy Skye. Bikes are also a good way to get around locally.
