Moll Cottage, Sconser, Isle of Skye,

Sleeps 2 - Wood Burning Stove - Sorry No Pets Allowed

Moll Cottage is situated in a quiet coastal location just a few miles from the village of Sconser on Skye's east coast, and enjoys uninterrupted views across to Scalpay and Raasay. This traditional gamekeeper's cottage, which has stood for over 100 years, has been newly renovated and throughout is tastefully furnished and equipped to a high standard.

The accomodation is all located on the one level and consists of an open plan sitting room with kitchen, a double bedroom, and a shower room which also houses the laundry facilities. Ideal for a couple or equally a single person looking to enjoy this part of the island, the location is perfect for the walker or climber, with direct access from the doorstep into the surrounding hills.

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.

A relaxing and peaceful place to say. The cottage has breathtaking views and is decorated and kitted out to a high standard. Perfect getaway that is both secluded but not too far away from tourist attractions. Skye itself is becoming very busy so it was lovely to have this sea side retreat to return to after our sightseeing and days out. Midges were the only downside as it meant sitting outside in the evening and enjoying the amazing view and wildlife wasn't possible. We will definitely come back, out with midge season!

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful cottage. Very well equipped and views to Raasay as sun sets. We have spent the whole week exploring Skye and can't wait to come back! Gorgeous spot and Moll Cottage itself is just perfect.

The moment we arrived we loved everything about Moll Cottage, fantastic scenery, great weather, and a cottage that is well restored and fully equipped for all of your needs. A highlight was watching an otter dive, catch and eat a fish just outside the cottage. We were very sad to leave but will return next year.

We had an amazing week in Moll Cottage... it is in the most beautiful position, is well equipped and bigger than the photos make it look. A great spot for exploring Skye and a wonderful haven to come back to. Just beware the midges if you are taking a baby!

My husband and I came to Skye in January for a brief respite from a hectic year. We loved Moll Cottage! It is in a beautiful and tranquil location. It took us a few nights to get used to the silence and amazing darkness, but it was just what we needed! The cottage was spotless and the kitchen very well equipped. The spacious closet in the bedroom allowed us to unpack and store our suitcases under the bed (which was extremely comfortable), making the two rooms feel quite spacious. The wood-burning stove was excellent and there was plenty of fuel, although we really didn't need much as the cottage is well insulated and a small fire made the cottage very cozy! The television had excellent reception, but we only watched it once because there are fantastic views from the cottage windows. We enjoyed waking up each morning to see the water just at the edge of the lawn and seeing red deer, otters, seals, cormorants, shags, and eagles. The single-track road to the cottage seems to have been patched up and in slightly better condition coming from Broadford rather than Sconser. Moll Cottage was the perfect place to get away from it all! I am sure we will be back! Jessica Russell

Moll Cottage was easy to find, very warm and in an incredibly private and scenic location. Use northern access road: southern approach in bad repair (30 mins to drive 3 miles) so access from further junction takes half the time! Comfy bed but needs new pillows. Nice to have liners. Lots of local info and some DVD's. Basic condiments provided, but only a tiny prep area if cooking. One of the two ceiling lights, the cooker hood light and under unit lights not working: should have been spotted before our arrival. No spare bulbs provided - we did not want to wait around for manager to call during our stay. As others have noted - suite is really uncomfortable because, bizarrely, all its rear cushions have been removed. The property does need quite a thorough cleaning: lots of mould - on window frames and surrounds, floor and wall at end of lounge & inside the shower. Lots of greasy, dirty pots, cutlery, utensils/dirty tea towels and apron. Grubby everywhere: chair backs, bedhead and end, picture glass and even the bottom of the wardrobe mirrors and their runner recesses. Toilet brush & holder awful. No bathroom mirror or shaver point. Bins have stickers stating "collection contract expired" so were not emptied. Lovely location but quality of cleaning/lack of attention reduced rating.

Dear Mr & Mrs Nicol, thank you for your feedback on your recent stay at Moll Cottage, we do as a small company appreciate all the reviews we receive. We are disappointed that certain aspects of your stay did not meet your expectations, we do provide in the event of any problems a contact number for the local caretaker and our office is open until 7pm during the week and until 6pm at the weekends, along with an out of hours answering service. We have checked with the caretaker and our own records and see that no problems were reported by you. Due to the location, the owner has provided a telephone in the cottage for emergency and local calls. The caretaker does live within a few miles and could easily have come and rectified any issues that you had.

However in the circumstances we have, as a goodwill gesture made a partial refund to cover you for any inconvenience caused.

Great little cottage away from it all with good facilities and beautiful views to Raasay. Be aware that the single track road to the cottage is poorly maintained by the local council. Perfect place for couples looking for relaxation and quiet alongside access to the many walks and sites across Skye.

A lovely isolated cottage with stunning views. Isle of Skye was beautiful. We had a seal pass on the 1st night and a deer feeding at the back of the house one morning. The cottage has everything you need for a lovely stay . Would say the only negatives were the boiler due to not having high pressure makes a noise. And a shame the settee was so uncomfortable change this and it would be perfect.

Lovely cosy little cottage, perfect for 2 people for a week. Great views. Settee not the comfiest, but appreciate it does need to be small! Bed very comfy. Our week on Skye was a bit stormy, but cottage stayed warm. A bit off the beaten track, which was what we wanted. Would definitely go again and wholeheartedly recommend. Thank you!

This cottage is a pearl! We just spent a week there and only dreamed of staying here again. Its location is exceptional, in absolute calm and especially in an environment of any beauty. The house is very well equiped and especially decorated with taste and simplicity. Everything we expected. A house in keeping with the landscape.

This house is absolutely perfect!! My husband and I stayed there for our honeymoon and never wanted to leave! It is in a great location too, close to Broadford and Portree. We can't wait to visit Scotland again soon and would definitely stay here again!

Visited this cottage from the 26 December 2014 to 3 January 2015. Loved every minute of our stay some great views and a well kept house had all our offer and more would stay again anytime of the year. Lots of wildlife around also for such a quiet location.

Arrive via a little used coastal road to a great cottage in a great location, just a few steps from the sea. Very well equipped with everything you'd need. The weather on Skye was outstanding which certainly helped but, good weather or bad, this is a lovely place. We saw lots of wildlife from the cottage - Red Deer, Buzzards, Otters, Seals etc. The only small downside was the settee - not very comfortable. Overall though, a great place
