West Cottage was built around 1870 as a typical croft house with a byre beside it but gradually deteriorated during the 1990s until it was in danger of becoming derelict. In 2007 the old cottage was stripped back to the stone shell; it was re-roofed and completely refurbished to a very high standard and a large living-room was built on the end of the old house on the site of the former byre. The cottage offers comfortable accommodation over 2 floors. The living room, kitchen/dining and double bedroom with en-suite shower are on the ground floor with a further double bedroom, twin room and bathroom upstairs. The kitchen is fully equipped with electric cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. The living room has well-stocked book shelves, a wood burning stove and a colour TV. There is wifi throughout the house.

A little piece of heaven
We absolutely loved West Cottage. It has been refurbished to a very high standard whilst keeping the authentic “Croft” feel. The downstairs ensuite bedroom was perfect for my 92 year old Mum & the view from the sitting room is just breathtaking - even better when the weather’s good enough to enjoy the view sitting outside with a gin & tonic (which it was this week!)
We were so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your holiday so much and that the house worked out for you all.
The cottage fulfilled all our needs for a perfect holiday on Skye. It was warm and dry so welcome in the wind and rain. The living room space and view are magical. Can’t wait to return.
First visit to Skye & cottage perfect introduction
We stayed at Helen’s cottage for a week. Great location and well equipped and comfortable house. Beautiful views from sitting room and added bonus of extensive book collection. Good base for exploring southern Skye and also for excursions to the north. Lovely area and really helpful hosts. Thank you.
Charming, quiet, and peaceful
Everything we needed was provided, the space was more than adequate for 2 people, comfortable and with views that made each morning a pleasure to wake up to. Quiet and calm, we loved staying here and I'm very sad to have to leave. Thank you for such a memorable place to stay.
Well appointed home tucked away in the Scottish countryside with stunning views. Truly wonderful.
Perfect! Stunning views. Spotlessly clean. Everything you need for a comfortable stay. Log fire was wonderful and the cottage was warm and cosy. Helen was easy to communicate with and made every effort for us to enjoy our stay. None of us wanted to leave!
West Cottage is situated in upper Teangue, a quiet and secluded part of the Sleat Peninsula, with views across the Sound of Sleat to Knoydart. Sleat is known as 'the garden of Skye' and is the perfect base to stay. Ideal for walking, photography, boating and various water sports or just watching the wildlife. There is a reasonably well stocked grocer in Ardvasar (5 miles) and a large Co-op in Broadford (14 miles). There are several good restaurants within a short drive: Toravaig House is just at the bottom of the hill, Hotel Eilean Iarmain at Isle Ornsay (5 miles) offers both restaurant dining and has an atmospheric bar serving pub food and the Michelin starred Kinloch Lodge lies between Teangue and Broadford.
