    The Bothy at Number 7 is a one-bedroomed cottage rising in 2007 on the site of an old wood and stone building on croft Number 7 Achachork, Portree, Isle of Skye. Designed by Skye-based award winning architects, it provides luxurious accommodation for two with no expense spared in its construction and fitting out.

    The bedroom's King-size canopied double bed and fitted furniture has been specially built by Scotland's biggest hotel furnisher. There are views of Ben Tianavaig to the east and the rolling moors to the west or satellite tv all from the comfort of your bed.

    The bathroom has a large oval bath, walk in multi-head shower, toilet, bidet and wash basin, and all towels will be provided along with little extras.

    The kitchen, fitted out in solid oak, provides dual-fuel cooking (gas hob), microwave, dishwasher, washer/dryer, fridge, freezer, and breakfast bar.

    The living area has a cathedral ceiling up to rafter level and its huge picture windows look south to Portree and the Cuillin mountains, and west with its promise of spectacular sunsets. Lounge here enjoying the views, or widescreen satellite tv or - simplicity itself - the contemporary HWAM Vivaldi wood-burning stove. There is a cosy dining area next to the west window for romantic dinners.

    The Bothy has been built with leisure in mind. Ascend the spiral staircase to the leisure suite for a Finnish sauna, exercise machines, and invigorating shower. Or check your email or favourite websites on the broadband enabled PC. A FREE telephone is provided too.

    You will not lack any home comforts in our beautiful cottage-next-door - the Bothy at Number 7, central for visiting all areas of Skye.

    Road Directions

    From Skye Bridge A87 follow signs to Portree. Bear right into the village on the A855 and follow signs for Staffin. Around 2km out of Portree turn left at the Achachork sign. The Bothy is almost 2km along this road on the left. Satnav users - avoid Mallaig unless you have checked ferry availability!

    Public Transport Directions

    From the nearest information centre:- From Portree Tourist Iinformation Centre follow the A855 Staffin road for around 2km. Turn left when you see the Achachork sign. The Bothy is almost 2km along this road on the left.

    Getting there by railway:- The world famous Inverness to Kyle of Lochalsh line will take you through the heart of the Highlands to its terminus near the Skye Bridge. There is a bus service from here to Portree where a taxi or hire car can be arranged.
    Or try the steam train (May - Oct) from Fort William to Mallaig and catch the ferry, the proper way to start a Hebridean holiday.

    Getting there by aeroplane:- Inverness Airport is around 2.5 hours away by hire car via Loch Ness. Glasgow Airport is 5 hours away by car or a little longer by direct coach service to Portree.

    Getting there by ferry:- You can still come over the sea to Skye by travelling the Road to the Isles to Mallaig and catching the ferry to Armadale in south Skye. Cars are now carried throughout the year, but please check. If you are adventurous and really want to avoid the Skye Bridge turn off the A87 at Shiel Bridge and follow the signs for the tiny Glenelg Ferry (summer only) to Kylerhea in south Skye.
