Overview

About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom

Aurora Cottage is a spacious self catering holiday cottage in the rural crofting community of Bornesketaig and is situated at the end of a quiet private access road. Aurora is surrounded by crofting land and benefits from with exceptional views across the sea to the mountains on the Isle of Harris.

The cottage sleeps up to 6 in 3 bedrooms, including a king, double and twin beds. The upstairs family bathroom includes a bath and shower, while the downstairs en-suite serves the king size room. All bedrooms have views across crofts and the sea to Harris. The kitchen and dining room have been refurbished to a very high standard. The lounge comprises reclining leather sofas and a 4K television with Netflix subscription. The Cottage also benefits from WiFi

Aurora is located approximately 5 miles north of the ferry port of Uig on the spectacular Trotternish peninsular. As well as 2 general stores which include a post office and petrol station, Uig is home to the famous Skye Brewery, and the Uig hotel whose resturant is open to non-residents. Travelling south some 14 miles on a very well maintained road bring you to Skye’s main town of Portree where you will find a good selection of shops, a large supermarket and resturants to suit all tastes.

The north of the peninsula includes locations to see dinosaur footprints, the Skye Museum of Island life (can be seen from the Cottage) and Flora MacDonald’s grave.

Traveling down the east coast of the Trotternish peninsula, the incredible views of some of Skye’s geology are available including the Quiraing and the Old Man of Storr. These are but a small number of cultural and natural attractions on the Island. Skye offers a huge range of activities, walking to kayaking, mountain climbing to boat tours.

So if your holiday to Skye is for a quiet relax or an adventure exploring remote corners of the Highlands and Islands, Aurora Cottage is an ideal base for you to discover why the Isle of Skye has been voted the ‘most desirable place to live’ in Britain.
