Fully equipped kitchen with large fridge freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer,microwave, toasty maker, coffee machine, electric kettle etc.


Waternish is the central of the most prominent peninsulas to project north west into the Minch. It is an extremely pretty area and very green. There are a series of scattered settlements here including Bay, Lusta, Stein Hallin, Halistra and Trumpan. There are several places worth a visit whether it be historic or just local attractions. These include 'Fairy Bridge' dating from the early 1800's and apparently named because it was believed to be the haunt of fairies and where the then Chief MacLeod was given the famous 'FairyFlag' by his fairy wife (before she left him returning to her own people) to be waved only three times if the MacLeod Clan were in danger. The flag has been waved on two occasions and is now kept in Dunvegan Castle. Dunvegan Castle (about 15 minute drive) is the ancestral home of the chieftains of the Clan MacLeod. The castle can trace its history back to around 1200AD.

Also to be found in the Dunvegan area the beautiful Coral Beach - one of the best beaches in Skye with great views of the highest sea cliffs in Skye, Dunvegan Head.

The historic Trumpan church in Waternish was the scene of a bloody massacre of the MacLeod clan by the MacDonalds in the middle of the 16th century. There is an excellent picnic area here where you can enjoy superb views. Nearby you will find the path leading to the Waternish lighthouse for those of you who enjoy walking.

We absolutely loved this cottage. The location is superb. Quite honestly the comfiest bed I have slept in for years! Our host was friendly and welcoming throughout the entire booking and stay itself. Wonderful place to relax.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely cottage with views to Outer Hebrides
One of the best things about this cottage was the amazing views over Loch Bay and the Outer Hebrides. The location was peaceful and tranquil ans we were scarcely aware of the neighbouring cortages. We found the cottage to be reasonably well equipped on the whole and enjoyed using the wood burning stove most evenings. Good quality towels were provided and also cleaning products including hand sanitizer at the entrance. Car parking was also easy. We did our main shopping at the Co op in Portree which was a bit of a trek but found the food store in nearby Dunvegan well stocked and reasonably priced. There was no mobile signal at the cottage but the wi-fi signal (secure connection) was good. Our nearest restaurant at Loch Bay was pre booked for the whole of August and September. We really enjoyed our stay at this lovely cottage in Waternish and hope to return to Skye someday soon.
