Exceptionally beautiful, secluded, romantic stone cottage for two, located right on the edge of one of Skye's grandest sea lochs. Views are to the Cuillin mountains, the Outer Hebrides as well as to the otters on the rocks below.
**** In its first year, Kingsburgh Boathouse was awarded 'Winner 2011 - Top Vacation Rental, Isle of Skye' and 'Rated Excellent' - both on TripAdvisor's FlipKey affiliate - thank you to all guests who reviewed so positively - I am so proud! ****
The historic Kingsburgh Boathouse, Skye, is an ideal romantic hideaway, located on Loch Snizort on the western coast of the Trotternish peninsula. Secluded and just a few steps from the shore, it is only 8 miles from Portree. The Cuillin mountain range dominates the southerly horizon from the picture windows and to the north, in mid-summer, the sun sets beyond Harris.
The Kingsburgh Boathouse is fully equipped for a luxury break for two people. Super comfy sofas in the sitting area and elegant dining suite, with neat kitchen and cloakroom, are located on the ground floor. Underfloor warming throughout is complemented by the wood stove; HD TV with DVDs, broadband and Hi-fi with iPod dock are all available. Upstairs, the super-king bed can be offered as twins and the bedroom has a charming morning coffee corner. The glamorous bathroom has a large walk-in shower and double-ended bathtub with, arguably, Skye's best bathroom view.
The location is perfect for canoeists or surfers, for wildlife watching, fishing, walking or just chilling out, watching the weather. Rescuing the stone building from its ruinous state has been a labour of love by the owner and discerning guests will love the tranquillity and luxury of this haven, perched on the edge of the Atlantic.
Unfortunately as the cottage is on the edge of a sheep croft, pets cannot be accepted at the Boathouse.
