Lovely views, well laid out & interesting house (I wish I could teleport it back here to live in). We seek out secluded settings and quiet environments whenever possible and this cottage fit the bill perfectly. We had one little snafu but it was quickly...More

Extremely comfortable cottage with everything you could need. Always warm and cosy and well situated for walking locally or for visiting other parts of Skye, particularly to the North. Endless hours were spent with views of the river and the wildlife. Would definitely recommend Skeabost...More
