Always something interesting passing by. This is the Hebridean Princess luxury cruise ship.
Always dramatic!
Fishing boats always passing
Otters on the rocks by the house
Wonderful summer days on Skye
The small fishing harbour is just 30 seconds walk away.

Castle Moil is a nice half hour round walk from the house- just beware the tide!

“One of the best located holiday homes we have been to”
Reviewed 22 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

The Anchorage more than met our expectations. Beautiful location, right on the water. The house is spacious, warm and inviting, furnished to a high standard and so clean. Detailed information about the house and places to go on Skye was emailed to us before our departure by Richard (the owner) which was very helpful. Tried to book for September but all dates booked out unfortunately. Will certainly be going again - just off to find dates!!

“A WONDERFULL VIEW FROM THE SUN LOUNGE THAT IS EVER CHANGING”
Reviewed 29 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We have stayed in many cottages in the highlands of Scotland and The Anchorage has a view that will stay in our memory for ever
The fast tidal flow of the Kyle just outside all the windows brings an ever changing show of sea birds, otters diving for a meal, fishermen viewing their pots, boats large and small plying their trade, we just sat and gazed for hours
Kyleakin is a genuine working village and the locals made us very welcome ,Saucy Mary provides excellent food and the King Hakon bar is very friendly
The month of February provided weather of pure blue sky's to raging storms and just went by in a flash .
Thank you Richard it was great

“Perfect cosy magic”
Reviewed 14 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

A beautiful cottage in a great location, perfect for exploring the island. Warm and cosy, and really nicely decorated it was a wonderful place to return to after a day on the mountains! Exactly as the website and pictures showed. Even better for us was the exact location. Walking distance to Kyleakin and a great view of the stunning Skye bridge.
If you are lucky you will see otters outside. I have a short film on youtube but I couldn't attach it here because of the rules. But if you go and get lucky you can make your own otter-movie!

Reviewed 6 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

A wonderful cottage - right by the sea with fantastic views from every room. Perfectly furnished, with wood burner and Aga. Comfortable beds, cosy sofas, a lovely garden - absolutely nothing not to like. We even watched an otter catch and eat his breakfast, right from the sitting room window. Magical.
