Score Bay Cottage, South Duntulm, Kilmuir, Sleeps 5

Wood Burner

Sorry No Pets Allowed

Score Bay Cottage is situated in the small township of Duntulm which is on the most northerly part of the Trotternish peninsula.  The property is situated in a quiet location and enjoys spectacular coastal scenery with far reaching views to the Outer Hebrides.

The cottage is well equipped and tastefully furnished and ideally positioned to take full advantage of the coastline, with sea views from the majority of the windows.  All the accommodation apart from the second double bedroom is located on the ground level. The upper level is reached by a space saver staircase, which unfortunately makes this floor unsuitable for the very young or elderly. Outside the garden is fully enclosed and is equipped with garden furniture and a barbecue.

The surrounding area itself offers some of the most dramatic scenery on the island, within a short distance the Quiraing, Old Man of Storr, and the spectacular Trotternish Ridge can be found, these are ideal areas for walkers and the awe inspiring peaks a photographers dream. The Skye Museum of Island Life is located in the vicinity and is well worth a visit to see the traditional thatched cottages and the way of life of a bygone age.

Whitewave, Skye’s outdoor centre is located just a few miles away and offers various activities to keep the whole family amused. The nearest facilities including a general store, cafe and restaurants, would be located in Uig which is 8 miles away, a regular ferry service also runs from here to the islands. Further afield Portree is located 24 miles to the south and offers a good range of facilities including a supermarket and various visitor attractions. 

Within a couple of minutes walk you will find the shoreline of Score Bay, where during 2015 fossilised dinosaur footprints were discovered on the beach. The prints which are only visible at low tide are a major discovery and date from about 170m years ago, in the Jurassic period. Score Bay Cottage is the closest on the island to the discovery.

We've been to Skye now 6 times and this cottage is by far the best place we've stayed. The location was fantastic and incredibly relaxing; the house itself was perhaps the best equipped we've ever stayed in; and my partner, David, can now say that he can confidently cook on an Aga! All mod cons were included such as Wi-Fi, a great telly, dish-washer and washer-dryer. The house was charming, clean and the view onto the Bay was hypnotic. This is the only time that, on leaving a property at the end of our holiday, we've agreed that we should return to that property in future. I can't recommend this place highly enough. I'd like to move there permanently!

Wonderful! At the top of Skye, looking out over Harris & Lewis, if it's peace & quiet you are after, this is the cottage for you. Located some 30m back from the road, and with very little passing traffic, the cottage benefits from fantastic views, & wonderful sunsets. The cottage was surrounded by sheep. Just across the road is a pebble beach, which I'm sure is great in summer. The cottage is warm, comfortable and well equipped. The Aga was a doodle to use. We will be back

This place is a dream come true. After spending three nights here I simply cannot think of a more perfect place to come to get a way from it all. The location is thrilling - austere and dramatic in the very best way - and the house itself is a gem. I will be returning often - since my need to get away from it all is quite pronounced. The owners are very friendly and sensitive and their excellent taste is evident both in the simplicity of the renovation and the detail of the interior features.
