Lovely wee cottage, basic but with everything you will need! We really enjoyed a very relaxed trip including the walk up the hill behind the cottage with spectacular views and we even saw an eagle.

About the neighbourhood
Camustianavaig is very quiet and has a rural feel. The house is a two minute walk from the bay and there is an abundance of wildlife including seals, sea eagles, otters, basking sharks, dolphins - and the local sheep. Restaurants, pubs and supermarkets are five miles away in Portree.
Getting around
There is a bus from Camustianavaig to Portree in the morning, and one that returns in the evening. Otherwise, you'll need a car or bike - there is room to park a car in the garden and shelter for two bikes in the shed.

How to get there
Airport: Inverness: 180.0 km
Railway: Kyle of Lochalsh: 50.0 km
Ferry: Armadale: 40.0 km
Cross the bridge at the Kyle of Lochalsh and follow the A87 north. Turn off when you see a signpost to the right to the Braes B883. Follow this road to a T-junction. Turn right. Follow this road for about 2 miles. Just after the bus stop, you will see a signpost to Camustianavaig, take this road down to the left.

When you enter Camustianavaig, just after the sign, there is a fork in the road beside the phone box. Take the right hand road that takes you down to the water. Continue along the road to the other side of the bay, past a red post box and follow the road as it bears left inland. The Crofter’s House is the third house on the right, just past the yellow and white pillars house.
