About Georgina McNaught
We are renting my grandfather's old cottage on Skye where we have enjoyed family holidays for many years.
Georgina McNaught purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Georgina McNaught chose Isle of Skye
Skye is beautiful and peaceful. This cottage used to belong to my grandfather and we came here for many many wonderful holidays.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage is a perfect base for exploring Skye. It's peaceful and backs onto the hillside, but it's only ten minutes from Portree, where there are shops, restaurants and a lovely harbour. We have recently put in a new kitchen with new appliances, utility room with washer and drier, there is a powerful shower, and also a log burning stove for cosy evenings in by the fire. There is a separate dining room for family meals and planning the next day's adventures with the help of our maps and guide books. Newly installed central heating system 2014. There is a lovely mature enclosed garden, half an acre, perfect for relaxing in and taking in the views and for kids to play. Whether you like walking, mountaineering or just relaxing in peace, Skye is a wonderful place to take a break.

Cozy and sweet
Loved our 5 night stay at the cottage. It was so nice to be able to have a cozy homebase to explore Skye from. The bed was comfortable, shower was excellent, and it was a treat to cook our own meals, wash our clothes, and read a book in the cozy living area. The view from the home was lovely, and it was nice to watch the sheep grazing throughout the day. Very happy with our stay here. Also.... we got engaged here!
Congratulations! So happy for you both. Thank you for sharing the news of your engagement during your stay at our cottage. Best wishes for the future
Lovely cosy cottage.
Great little holiday cottage with comfy beds and all amenities. Beautiful views and very serene. Wish we had stayed longer.
Warm and inviting cottage
My cousin and I were on a 3-week trip around Scotland and stayed at the crofter's cottage in mid-skye. We loved this place, the view is spectacular! We even enjoyed the sheep in the field in front of the cottage. The cottage itself is warm and inviting, having a fire at the end of the chilly day was a bonus.
Conveniently located, just a short drive to many sights in Skye! Would love to return some day soon!
A lovely area. So wild yet so much history.
Comfortable cottage well equipped. Spacious. Some quirks for North Americans but most are explained in the book. Go for the walks near the cottage.
Cozy, comfortable and charming!
Everything needed for a quiet getaway was thoughtfully provided, even a bottle of wine! It was just perfect for us while on our 49th anniversary tour of the UK. We will forever treasure our memories from the Isle of Skye!
Lil pink house
Nice little cottage. It was a great central location to explore Skye. We only had a couple days so not too much exploring, but was perfect place to head up north to Uig and around to Kilt Rock back to Portree.
