EILEAN ISAY COTTAGE - FAMILY FRIENDLY - AMAZING SEA VIEWS - SLEEPS 6

Waterfront cottage with kitchen and patio
The traditional stone built croft cottage has 2 public rooms - lounge with cosy wood burning stove (initial supply of logs and coal supplied) Wi-Fi enabled satellite TV/DVD player, i-pod docking station, dining room seating 6 people also with satellite TV, library of books, games, puzzles, DVD's, videos, maps, details of the many local forestry/coastal walks. Both public rooms and bedrooms with sea views. All electricity, heating, Wi-Fi, bed linen and towels included in tariff. Large enclosed garden which dogs love, with panoramic views across Loch Bay and onwards to Outer Islands - amazing sunsets.

There is also free internet and Broadband connection. There is a payphone in the cottage which accepts incoming calls but whilst the mobile connection is poor inside the cottage, mobile signal can be found in the garden.

There are two large comfortable bedrooms - one double (King size bed) and one twin - both having extra fold-down single beds. Bed linen and towels are all supplied. Electric blankets on the bed with extra blankets supplied for the chillier evenings. Again both bedrooms with sea views.

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.

5/5 Excellent

amazing location, awesome views and pub nearby
We were lucky enough to be visited by golden eagles at the cottage. The views are to die for. You have everything you need in the cottage including internet. The washing machine and separate dryer were a luxury and the brand new fridge freezer was a treat that dispensed cold water for drinking. Marion is a gem who took immediate care of any problems reported to her. A fantastic week. Thank you Marion.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful view
Comfortable cottage, perfect for our family of 4, with a comfortable king size bed in the master bedroom & decent twin beds in the 2nd bedroom. It had everything we needed for cooking, dining & cosying up for the evening. The view over the loch is breathtaking, and there are lovely walks nearby. Also nearby is The Yurt at Skye Skyns, which is a fabulous place to get coffee & cake, or a bowl of delicious soup. The owner is very friendly, and called us the say after we arrived to check if we had settled in ok & ask if we needed anything. We had a lovely stay and would definitely recommend this property.
