Luxury at your fingertips

  • 5 of 5

My first time to the Isle of Skye and the Seashell was superb.

The Seashell has every luxury your require and even more with the peace and quiet overlooking beautiful views. It is a fabulous bolthole to all the exploring of the Isle and there is plenty to see. I went in March and very few places are open so made my packed lunch and had a fabulous time. The weather was lovely as well. I even got to see the northern lights.

Thank you for a fabulous stay - only downside the garden is not secure but luckily my dog follows me around like a shadow

Perfect bliss

  • 5 of 5

The Seashell is wonderfully comfortable and well equipped. The huge windows give panoramic views of the bay in all weathers. The dogs loved the five minute run from the end of the garden through the bracken to the deserted bay every morning. The house has a lovely feel and the owner was really helpful with answers to our pre visit questions. There is an outstanding bar/restaurant (Munros) only five minutes drive away and we kept popping into the Oyster Shed on our travels out to the rest of the island. Fiscavaig is beautifully quiet and out of the way but well located for places of interest near and far - Portree, Sleat peninsula, Cuillins etc. Can't recommend the Seashell highly enough.

Fantastic cottage in a beautiful, peacful location

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing time on Skye and Seashell cottage is the perfect base to explore the island. The cottage is set in a beautiful location with a short stroll leading down to a little bay which is a great place for an early evening walk. The cottage has everything you will need for a relaxing holiday and has excellent décor with stunning views. We can not wait to return to Skye and we will also return to Seashell cottage. Thank you

Magical place

  • 5 of 5

Both the cottage and location provided everything we could dream of. We had some high quality family time in Seashell. Kids loved the beach, birdwatching and charming evenings by the fire. I loved the silence and an absolute comfort of the cottage. We felt safe and looked after:) and will definitely recommend this place to our friends. Thank you Nevelee xxx Milena

Was für ein niedliches Cottage! Wow!!!

Nicht nur seine Lage, die sehr ruhig und erholsam für uns gewesen ist, sondern auch die liebevolle Ausstattung mit allem, was man zum Wohlfühlen benötigt, hat uns unsere erste Ferienwoche auf der Insel Sky versüßt (Küche modern und komplett mit Koch- und Gewürzutensilien ausgestattet, geschmackvolles Interieur, alles sehr sauber). Das findet man selten. Vielen Dank an Nevelee!

Wir können die Insel Sky nur empfehlen. Sie ist besonders, sowohl landschaftlich als auch farblich. Jedoch sollte man versuchen, die Touri-Ströme zu meiden. Ruhige unbd lauschige Plätze/ Buchten findet man nach kleineren oder längeren Wanderungen abseits. Bitte immer eine Regenjacke im Rucksack mitnehmen. Die Wolken ziehen hier schneller vorüber.;-)

(Leider haben wir nie persönlichen Kontakt zur Vermieterin gehabt.)

[What a cute cottage! Wow!!!

Not only its location, which was very quiet and relaxing for us, but also the loving facilities with everything you need to feel comfortable, our first holiday week on the Island of Sky sweetened us (kitchen modern and completely equipped with cooking and spice utensils , Tasteful interior, everything very clean). This is rare. Thanks to Nevelee!

We can only recommend the island of Sky. It is special, both landscape and color. However, you should try to avoid the touri streams. Quiet unbd secluded places / bays can be found after smaller or longer hikes away. Always bring a raincoat in the backpack. The clouds are moving faster.;-)

(Unfortunately, we never had personal contact with the landlord.)]
