Chasing The Moon is a hidden treasure that sits on a plateau overlooking one of the most spectacular views on the Isle of Skye, Rubha nam Brathaerean, or Brothers Point. Self-catering, three double bedrooms with ensuite, luxury accommodation, pets welcome.
Sitting halfway between the Old Man of Storr and Kilt Rock, on the northeast section of the Isle of Skye, Chasing The Moon is ideally situated to explore the drama of the truly spectacular Trotternish Peninsula. Only 5 miles away from the thrilling views of the Quiraing and 9 miles from Staffin, where you can explore a mesolithic hunter gatherer site dating back the 7th millennium BC, the location of this property covers the best that the Isle of Skye has to offer.
If you take the short walk to the pebbled beach below the house, you will encounter sea-lions lazing on the rocks and birds of prey circling over Brothers Point. Dozens of giant dinosaur footprints were recently discovered on this beach providing rare evidence of dinosaur evolution in the middle Jurassic epoch. Even to the dis-interested, it is impossible to walk out at low tide and not see these remarkable fossil prints, and imagine them standing on the same spot as you over 170 million years ago! Continue onto to Brothers Point and look in wonder over to the Isle of Raasay to the Scottish mainland beyond. Here you will feel very blessed that you have made it to one of the best-kept secrets on Skye.
The view from the lounge looks out over the Sound of Raasay to the west coast mainland. From this spot you will experience some of the most stunning sunrises and sunsets that Scotland has to offer.
Offering accommodation for up to 6 people, with 3 double rooms, all with en suite shower rooms and a super king or king-sized bed, there is plenty of space to relax and recover after a long day exploring.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a fridge freezer, dishwasher, microwave, and oven with induction hob. There are plenty of good quality cooking pots and materials to encourage guests to make the property a home from home, and take advantage of the breathtaking views from the dining table.
Equipped with free Wi-Fi, DVD player, free satellite TV, and a Playstation 4 with ample games and DVD’s, there is something for those who do not yet appreciate the value of a good view.
