Cuillin View Ord, due to Covid 19 we have to ask that all guests making bookings confirm to Scottish Government advice regarding travel and number of households staying together. Thanks we want everyone to stay safe. Our holiday house is a small cottage (approximately 100sq meters floor space) set about 200 meters from the sea with a beautiful views of the lochs and mountains. The house has large garden and exterior deck with garden furniture. The interior has a large open plan sitting/dining/kitchen area. This room runs along the whole length of the house and has a mezzanine sitting/ play area. The house is wonderfully cosy. We have a log burning stove (wood is supplied free of charge) backed up by electric storage heating. The house is family friendly. There is a double bedroom and two twin bedrooms one of which is small being set in the roof. There is one bathroom which is large, with an integrated shower/bath unit. At the mezzanine level there is a roomy sitting/ children's play area with toys, games etc. We have available in the cottage; a (travel) cot, high chair, stair gate and a guard for the log burner. The location is too remote for a normal TV signal but we can access the free Sky satellite channels, we have many DVDs, there are books and maps. The house is also out with mobile phone networks and so we have a payphone which can receive incoming calls. We have WiFi but only for browsing and emails but we ask guests not to stream games or films, TV ( the WiFi speed is also too slow to allow this). The hamlet of Ord is breathtakingly beautiful and secluded: a few houses, four miles from a two way road and seven from the nearest pub and shop. Just a beautiful safe shore with abundant wildlife and one of the best views in the UK. From our holiday house you can see over Loch Eishort to both the Cuillin of Skye and the Cuillin of Rum, Scotland's most famous and rugged mountains- a truly wonderful view, both summer and winter. Ord is in the south of the Isle of Skye, which is arguably Scotland's most beautiful Island. Skye is on the north west coast of Scotland, part of the group of islands called the Inner Hebrides. The other Hebrides include Barra, Uist, Harris and Lewis all of which can be accessed by ferry. Skye is famous for its variety of beautiful scenery both mountain and coastal. It has fabulous walking. It is also steeped in Scottish history e.g. Dunvegan Castle, the Clan Donald Centre and the grave of Flora MacDonald who rowed the defeated Bonnie Prince Charlie 'over the sea to Skye'. It also has great food and drink; famous restaurants such as the Three Chimneys and the Kinloch Lodge, home to the classic malt whisky Talisker and to the Skye Brewery. Ord is near Armadale and Isle Ornsay on the Sleat peninsula in the area known as the garden of Skye. This area also houses Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, the Gaelic college, internationally recognised as a National Centre for Gaelic language and culture. Ord is about 15 miles from Broadford and 42 miles from Portree. We normally allow one dog, sometimes two, but prefer to discuss specifics of pets with our guests individually.More

About the neighbourhood
Ord is in the south of the Isle of Skye, which is arguably Scotland's most beautiful Island. Skye is on the north west coast of Scotland, part of the group of islands called the Inner Hebrides. The other Hebrides include Barra, Uist, Harris and Lewis all of which can be accessed by ferry. Skye is famous for its variety of beautiful scenery both mountain and coastal. It has fabulous walking.

It also has great food and drink; famous restaurants such as the Three Chimneys and the Kinloch Lodge, home to the classic malt whisky Talisker and to the Skye Brewery
Getting around
Skye is amazing and there is much too much to describe. There are ferries which allow you to visit other parts of Scotland and Islands. There are many outdoor activities. There is scenery and history. There are many restaurants. But there is not much land based public transport so you need a car or (if you are very keen and fit and have a bike with good low gears) you can cycle. Just Google 'Skye'
