Just a few miles from the village of Sconser on Skye's east coast, Moll House enjoys a fabulous shoreline location with views across to Scalpay and Raasay.
Tastefully furnished and equipped to a high standard the property is modern, spacious and light. Accommodating up to six, the property's quiet and enviable position makes it an ideal base for a family holiday.
Situated on a quiet minor road, the location is perfect no matter what your outdoor pursuit. With direct access into the surrounding hills it is popular with walkers and climbers, and its waterside location makes it ideal for the water enthusiast or fisher. For a more relaxed holiday perhaps just relax in the garden and enjoy the views.
From Sconser a short ferry trip takes you to the island of Raasay, one of Scotland’s most beautiful and unspoilt islands. An ideal location for a day out, Raasay is popular for its cultural heritage, walks and wildlife. Skye itself has numerous places of interest for the visitor: ancient castles, Talisker distillery, unspoilt beaches, picturesque villages, and of course the magnificent Black and Red Cuillin mountains.
All main rooms at the property benefit from sea views.

We stayed at the beautiful Moll House on the edge of the loch. It was a wonderful week. It was very peaceful, the house was a great size and had everything we needed for our stay. Sadly the house will no longer be available for rental (we met the owner during our stay) so we can't book it again for next year. It was in a fabulous location. In my honest opinion the fish farm next door does spoil somewhat the breathtaking views from almost all windows, but their business did not disturb us in any way.
A very comfortable home at the end of a loch next to the fish farm, accessed by a long rough road but worth it.
This is a great holiday house with plenty of space allowing the whole family and dog to relax. Big well equipped kitchen area and separate utility very practical. Bedrooms spacious and comfortable. Beautiful location by shore to watch wildlife. Well placed to explore whole of Skye. Some 3/4G signal was possible in kitchen window area if needed urgently but nice to disconnect and actually talk to your teenagers! Only gripes are the horrendous road conditions to get to Moll House, had to repair car tracking on return home!

Thank you for your review and feedback, unfortunately the road that passes the property is the responsibility of the Highland Council to look after and repair, and therefore Wilderness Cottages and the owner of the property have no control over this.
Comfortable & spacious house, ideal loch side position. Thoughtful fittings; large freezer, bath as well as a shower, very comfortable new bed, lots of storage space, utility room ideal for drying walking gear. Perfect base to tour Skye. Would book again.
A little piece of heaven. Beautiful views, quiet and peaceful. Lovely house, comfortable, warm, everything supplied too. This was our second visit to Moll, and we'll be back in the spring. Sweep our dog is moping for the garden and beach!
I can say that all of us had a really enjoyable time at Moll House. The accomadatation was really excellent, well equipped and warm. No need for fire etc, despite weather not being warm. It was at times wet and windy, but even this merely made the views across the lock more interesting. Lots of interesting wild life to be seen nearby and further afield. 50 years since last I was on Skye and despite more houses and people, the island retains its charm and beauty. Can recommend Moll house and the Island to any one looking for interesting place to visit. Frank Leach.
Moll House is in the most perfect position on the shore and only one other cottage in view. Stunning views from all the rooms.
Probably the best holiday cottage we've ever stayed in. Very large, modern, fresh, light, comfortable, well appointed and peaceful. Great central location for visiting Skye's attractions. There are very few other cottages on Skye that offer such access together with a shore location but away from the main roads. So if that's what you're after book this one!
Lovely spacious cottage in a great location - quiet, but with easy access to Skye's main facilities and tourist destinations. Great for wildlife- we saw seals, otters and eagles from the house. Great enclosed garden and access to pebble beach.
Our first holiday with Wilderness Cottages, excellent service throughout. I particularly liked the booking service both the online and the fact I was also provided with hard copies through the post. Our accommodation was top rate, excellent condition, great location, and total peace and quiet. I will definitely use Wilderness Cottages again, already looking forward to 2017.
We were thrilled with Moll House. After a long drive from York we arrived to find the house beautifully warm and spotlessly clean. It was a real home from home and the Xmas tree was a nice surprise. In the morning we were greeted with a fabulous view from the kitchen window which never failed to fascinate us every day as we looked for wildlife. The location is stunning. Our dog Max soon made himself at home next to the heater in the kitchen. The garden was lovely and safe for him to play around in and the proximity and privacy of the shore led to lovely relaxing strolls every morning. Our dog is not very sociable with other dogs so all that worry was taken away. This is our second stay in a wilderness cottage and we will certainly be back. Many thanks once again.
Lovely large clean and warm property, comfy sitting room. Kitchen well equipped . Caretaker phoned us to make sure we were alright during storm Abigail. Fantastic views The only niggles were the kitchen sink is extremely slow running, boiling water didn't help, so needs looking at, also mattress in master bedroom one half of it seems to have gone flat quite uncomfortable, we ended up sleeping in different rooms as mattress in other room was also quite flimsy. Not hard things to put right.
Moll House is certainly the biggest place we've every stayed in during our 30 years of holidays in Scotland but it was still homely and clean. The weather wasn't fantastic but that didn't spoil our enjoyment of the house and its environs. As promised, there are lovely vistas from every window and it's a very light house. Its position on Skye is ideal for travelling to all parts of the island. Really enjoyed our stay and wish we'd stayed longer.
You could not wish for a better location although the single lane approach road is a good introduction to driving in some of the more remote parts of the island. The approach from the Portree direction is shorter. The house was immaculate when we arrived and was well equipped. The five of us (all adults) had plenty of space to enjoy. The wildlife seen from the kitchen window was amazing and as the house is right on the shore of the loch it included seals, otters and a large variety of bird life.
A lovely spacious but cosy house in a peaceful setting and lots of wildlife in area. Access road from Broadford direction very poor but road in Portee direction not quite so bad so used that. Overall a great house, well equipped and comfortable. Little niggles - fridge in utility room not kitchen so rather inconvenient. Extractor fan in master bedroom ensuite didn't work but rattled sometimes. Also broken kitchen window. No major problems and would definitely consider coming again.

Thank you for your review, the window had been broken prior to your stay and and a replacement ordered. Unfortunately this was not carried out before your stay due to the the window having to be made, but it has now been replaced. Thank you for the information relating to the en-suite fan, which we have also arranged to have looked at.
Excellent, warm cosy and very well equipped. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend staying in this property
Comfortable, well equipped, warm, beautiful house. Unspoilt location with some great walks. Highly recommended! Thank You.
Outstanding property, well equipped and the position just stunning. Had a fantastic fortnight, just didn't want to leave!!
Lovely house in a beautiful location. Fully equipped and very clean. Caretaker was very friendly and helpful. House is in good central situation for touring Skye.
The cottage is very comfortable and the views are magnificent. Lots of walking nearby and a great trip on a boat to see the Sea Eagles. It is also central for exploring the rest of Skye. Otters and seals swimming in the sea near the cottage and lots of birds. Fantastic cottage in a brilliant area.
It was a lovely spacious house in a stunning location with amazing views over the loch. Nicely furnished and the log burner made it perfect. Kitchen was well equipped and there was a good selection of books, guides and maps. Exactly what we were looking for.
We had a fantastic holiday on Skye, with perfect and unbelievable weather for the time of year. We loved the house, it was very comfortable, very well equipped and in a beautiful location. So peaceful with wonderful views. We would highly recommend Moll House and we would love to return.
