Description

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday cottage in Isle of Skye - Waterfall View

Sleeps 8 in four bedrooms, 2 double bedrooms and 2 twin bedrooms, plus 1 cot.

Waterfall View is situated in a quiet hilltop location with stunning sea views towards the Outer Hebrides. From the cottage one has views of the Macleods Tables and the countryside towards the crystal clear waters of Loch Pooltiel. On a clear day the Western Isles can easily be seen.

The cottage sleeps 8 in four bedrooms - 2 doubles and 2 twins. There is a cot for an infant available on request.

A ramp leads to the front door, although the property has not been specifically designed for wheelchair users.

Lounge - two sofas, freeview TV, DVD player, children's games/toys, small selection of DVDs, wood burner. Separate sitting room - two sofas, hi-fi, small library, board games, NEW - FREE BROADBAND WIFI.

The cottage is surounded by 4 acres of natural croft land - (sizeable puddles may form, where young children will need supervision).

Duvets with linen and towels provided.

Sorry, No Pets allowed. Non-Smokers only.

Waterfall View provides the ideal retreat for relaxing and watching the ever changing vistas and is a super base for touring this mystical and historic island. Take a visit to Dunvegan Castle (the oldest inhabited castle in Scotland and seat of the Clan MacLeod) and a boat trip to see the seals basking on the rocks in Loch Dunvegan.

Boat trips include a sea trip from Portree to see the varied sea and bird life including the sea eagles, glass-bottomed boat trips and a ferry trip from Uig to the Outer Isles of Lewis, Harris and Uist. No visit to the Isle of Skye is complete without a trip on the Bella Jane from Elgol to Scotland's most isolated Loch Coruisk. The island boasts some wonderful restaurants, the world famous ‘Three Chimneys’ has held 3 red rosettes for 9 years and now has its first Michelin star. The Kinloch Lodge Hotel has been awarded Skye's first Michelin star.

If you enjoy swimming outdoors then try Glenbrittle’s magical Faerie Pools, or try kayaking, sailing, fishing or scuba diving in the crystal clear water around Skye's coastline.

Skye is the most important centre for Gaelic culture outside of the Western Isles, and almost half the population speak Gaelic fluently; the Gaelic College on Sleat (Skye's most southern tip) is the most important in Scotland. For a sample of the local culture, visitors to the island during mid July can experience the two-week long Skye and Lochalsh Festival - the Feis an Eilean. One of the most popular sights on Skye is the Cuillin ridge, made up of jagged snow-topped peaks, which can be seen from miles around, and are suitable for experienced walkers. The other main attraction on the island is the unusual rock formations of the Trotternish Peninsula, where the pillars and pinnacles are at their most dramatic in the Quiraing above Staffin Bay, on the east coast. Whilst on the island, the capital Portree is worth a visit, with its picturesque fishing harbour encircled with restaurants, and a mile or so out of town, visitors can also experience the Aros Centre.

About Peter & Wendy

Having holidayed on Skye and the West coast of Scotland over the years, we decided to build a home on Skye, for ourselves and others to enjoy.

Peter & Wendy purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Peter & Wendy chose Scottish Highlands & Islands

The plot enjoys magnificent sea or rural views. It is quietly located, set in natural croft land with magnificent views of Loch Pooltiel, Dunvegan Head and on a clear day the Outer Hebridean Islands.

What makes this cottage unique

With no light pollution, at night, there are amazing starry skies.

It is possible to see the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights).

Highland cattle and sheep graze here in front of the cottage and there is plenty of wildlife to be seen.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely location, very beautiful. Excellent walks and hikes here. Lots of sheep. Really nice not having to deal with the internet/wifi. Took a nice long break from it.

Very comfortable house in a very attractive area

  • 5 of 5

Waterfall View is a wonderful house on a very beautiful part of Skye. We found the house to be clean and very comfortable and well equipped. Spotting the red deer on our daily walks to the small harbour was a highlight for the children. Regular stunning sunsets over the Outer Hebrides added to the feeling of being somewhere very special.

Wherever you stay on Skye there will be long drives to visit the points of interest (although Neist Point for the best sunset view ever is really very close). That is something we had not anticipated but which didn't spoil our time at all as the roads were really good and the views constantly amazing however long the journey. Shops are few and far between but the Post Office at Glendale just ten minutes drive away is like a Tardis inside and sells everything - it's amazing!

I would recommend this house to a large family group as it is plenty big enough with a large kitchen, two comfortable lounges and a conservatory which gets toastie in the sunshine! The bedrooms are all good sizes too.

Thanks for a lovely stay.

Fantastic views and a great place to relax

  • 5 of 5

We had a really great holiday in Waterfall View, it's a lovely place to get away. Walking part of the Cuillin valley was definitely the highlight of the trip with such beautiful scenery and snow capped hills. We were also lucky with mostly calm weather and even got some snow.

The house is well equipped with lots of space. Really great to call it ours for a week. The views down to the lock are stunning and it is a wonderfully quiet place to relax. Would thoroughly recommend to friends and family and we hope to return in the future.

Spacious 5* home

  • 5 of 5

Access to the property was very easy. This welcoming, spacious 5* home was a joy to arrive too after a very long journey. The property is clean, light & airy and well maintained with fantastic views over the Loch and Outer Hebrides.

If you like walking there are plenty of walks to do. Skye is easy to travel around by car. The 3 Chimneys restaurant is always very busy and difficult to book a reservation. The local shop has basic provisions which is more than adequate to get started with.

Dunvegan castle & seals are worth a visit.

Cottage with magnificent views

  • 4 of 5

we just arrived at home after 2 weeks of holidaying in Scotland, of which we spend the first week at Waterfall View Cottage.

We have had a superb week at your lovely cottage. It is at a nice location with magnificent views. Cottage feels like you are at the end as well as on top of the world, without feeling (uncomfortably) alone. The house was well-maintained, clean, and provided with everything we could possibly need. Loved the fireplace!

Skye in november was covered in magnificent colours! We had quite good weather so enjoyed a lot of walking.

Thank you again for letting us stay at your cottage.
