The Shed Tokavaig is a beautiful architect-designed house situated on the north side of Sleat between Ord and Tarskavaig. The house offers views to The Cuillins and the small isles of Rhum and Canna. Commonly referred to ‘the garden of Skye’ Sleat is home to not just some of the best scenery that the island has to offer, but also award winning restaurants and other attractions which will cater for every taste.  

The previous architect owner of this sleek and serene hideaway, built the house in 2008 and technology wise the property has it all, with under floor heating, solar panels, ultra-insulation and a wood burner making it warm and comfortable no matter what time you choose to visit. Tastefully and stylishly furnished throughout, the property offers contemporary accommodation for up to eight guests.   

The house has been positioned to take full advantage of the views, the spacious open plan living area on the ground floor with its large windows overlook the sea loch and the small isles beyond.

We read several stories about The Shed before and have seen many pictures, however, the reality is even better. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, all necessary items are available. The house is very spacious, has an excellent ground plan and spectecular views from almost all rooms. And an outdoor shower (with warm water) - not to be missed. We certainly will try to come back - even if its quite far from Austria.

We travelled nearly 3 days from the South of Germany to the Shed in Tokavaig and it was so worth it! Mary's house was a dream. Beautifully designed, clean, equipped with everything we could ever wish for. On top of it all: very happily situated with the most amazing views.

This was a return visit to this very special place and we enjoyed it even more than the first. The house does all the things a good house should, it being welcoming, giving a feeling of spaciousness, and being calm and comfortable. The weather was superb, we watched deer and eagles and the hooting of owls lulled us to sleep. What a very very special place. Even though we live in Johannesburg we will be back.

The Shed is a beautiful building, with lovely social spaces laid out to make the most of the incredible location and views. Our friends and family all loved it, and would very much stay again. The bedrooms, although tucked away at either end, are perfectly sized, and all have easy access to a bathroom close by. Mary, the owner, was helpful prior to and during our stay. Now, if we could do something about that Scottish weather!

Stayed a week at The Shed in November with six friends. We all thought the house was exceptional both as architecture but importantly as a beautiful space to occupy. It sits beautifully within the landscape and offers mesmerisingly lovely views out over the sea to the inner isles and the Cuillin. Highly recommended.

Amazing stay at the cottage!! It was exactly as pictured but the view was even more amazing in person. We stayed for 2 weeks and we were SO sad to leave. Will definitely be coming back! Favorite thing was the local flock of sheep and herd of cows. Also a castle ruin super close that we walked to and the locals were very nice to help us with directions :)

The house was fantastic for our family get together. Lots of room and beautifully designed. Very comfortable and clean. Also great views of the bay and the mountains from downstairs and the upstairs lounge. Easy access to the local beaches.
