We invite you to stay in our family home, built on the family croft in the township of Kildonan (near Edinbane) with magnificent views over Loch Snizort to the Ascrib islands, Shiants and the Outer Hebrides beyond. This view whether drenched in summer sunset, or dusted with light winter snow is always captivating and frees your mind to relax. Facing south-east and north-west, sunrise and sunset are glorious. Facing north west it is in the perfect location to view the Aurora borealis from the sitting room, and the picnic site. The croft land extends down to a rocky shore where you are welcome to wander. Dogs are welcome with well behaved owners!
It is a perfect base from which to easily explore all of North Skye's wonders. Situated by historical 'Dun Flashadder', the croft and cottage is only a few hundred metres off the main road, A850. It's a 2 min drive from Edinbane, 15 min from both Portree or Dunvegan and neighbour to well known Waternish. Neist Point Lighthouse (22m), Talisker Distillery (30m), Dunvegan Castle (9m), Portree Town(13m), The Old Man of Storr, The Quiraing and Trotternish Ridge (30m), The Cuillin (22m) and Fairy Pool (30m) are all an easy drive drive from the cottage. Trips to Elgol, Armadale in Sleat or Plockton on the mainland are all realistic, all being 55 miles away offering great days out.
Dining, pub and live music are available at Edinbane Inn, and Edinbane Lodge which are about 1.5 miles from the cottage, close enough to walk down and get a taxi back.
This deceptively spacious cottage has been split into two apartments Ascrib & Shiant. Entirely independent they each have dedicated access, parking and garden seating areas offering privacy to enjoy your holiday. A great idea for those that getaway together, but enjoy having some peace and quiet to themselves too.
Both Cottage Apartments have a distinctive Highland character, and offer a welcome where you really feel you're in a charismatic island home from home. Colourful and cosy, with 'minders of childhood freedom', local island heritage and some modern luxuries they are refreshingly inviting holiday apartments.
ASCRIB COTTAGE APARTMENT provides accommodation as follows:
Downstairs: 1 Double bedroom, 1 lounge, 1 kitchen/diner, 1 jacuzzi bathroom, hall and porch.
Upstairs: 1 Double gallery bedroom.
The upstairs gallery bedroom is wonderfully romantic, with a canopy bed in glorious colours with celtic inspired drapes. Candles, flowers, and quirky old photos endear this room as a very charming island retreat. Lie at night and enjoy the stars and moon in the skylight window. If you leave the blackout blind open, sunrise will greet you with a warm rosy good morning, while evening sunset engulfs you in a rich golden glow. Downstairs the second bedroom has calmer colours reflecting the seashore. The bed is canopied and again with welcoming flowers and soft light this room is gently relaxing. Overlooking the front garden it faces east so sunrise again welcomes the day, if you choose not to draw the thick window drapes. The bathroom with Jacuzzi and candles invites you to truly relax after an energetic day out or simply pamper yourself because you deserve it. The living room has fabulous sea-views, easily enjoyed from the fireside whose cosy warm fire invites you to sit back and chill out! Characterful old island photos and inspiration from the outdoors will inspire your escape from every day life. Freesat TV, and DVD are available for those that still enjoy modcons of the 21st century. The kitchen diner, open plan off the sitting room makes mealtime planning more sociable. The table is by the window again with views over the croft to the sea.
