Eilean Mor Cottage, Skinidin

Sleeps 4 - Wifi - Wood Burner - Sorry no pets

Eilean Mor Cottage is a beautiful little retreat located in the small village of Skinidin in the north west part of the island. Sitting in an elevated position the cottage enjoys panoramic views to Loch Dunvegan and to the Outer Hebrides in the west. The cottage and the location are a perfect choice for a relaxing holiday or for those that enjoy the outdoor life, with hill walks on the doorstep.

This traditional cottage is tastefully furnished throughout and equipped to a high standard. On the ground level guests will find a well appointed kitchen, a sitting room complete with a wood burner, a twin bedroom and a beautiful conservatory which has a dining table and seating, this room being ideally positioned to enjoy the spectacular views of the surrounding landscape. Upstairs there is a double bedroom and a shower room. All the rooms apart from the kitchen are front facing and enjoy views to the loch below. Outside an enclosed garden with seating completes the facilities.  

The surrounding area has much to offer the visitor, for food lovers the famous Three Chimneys restaurant is within walking distance, and located not far away at Stein, is the Michelin starred Loch Bay Restaurant run by the accomplished chef Michael Smith. For days out, Neist Point with its lighthouse is within a short drive. The point being the most north westerly on Skye, and the sunsets here are just stunning. Basking sharks, dolphins, seals and whales are often spotted, along with a large variety of birds, including the majestic Golden eagle. The coral beaches at Loch Dunvegan are definitely worth a visit, as is Dunvegan Castle, home of the Clan Macleod for the last 800 years.

For supplies, Glendale (3 miles), which is on the way to Neist Point, has the Glendale Store and Post Office and the delightful Cafe Lephin. In the other direction, Dunvegan (4 miles), offers a small range of shops and restaurants, including the Old School Restaurant, and further afield Portree (26 miles) is the one of the largest towns on the island and has all the usual facilities, including boat trips from the harbour which are always popular. Another place worthy of a mention is the Talisker Whisky distillery based at Carbost, here you can arrange a tour around the distillery and learn all about the making and history of Scotland’s “water of life”.

Eilean Mor Cottage Reviews

Stayed at Eilean Mor cottage for a week at the start of June. Very clean, cosy and comfortable cottage. Everything you need. Spent most of our nights sitting in the conservatory relaxing with a glass of wine after a days walking in the hills of Skye. Only one small complaint was that the Wi-Fi did not work for the whole week we stayed. Called the caretaker who couldn't have been more apologetic. Informed me that BT had called the week before and the problem had supposedly been fixed. A new hub arrived while we were there so hopefully the problem has been fixed. One other small thing was the lack of any blind or frosted glass on the bathroom window. No privacy. All in all would not hesitate to book the cottage again. Thanks Darren McKay Stayed 9th June 2018
