The Villa overlooks 'Princes Point'; the headland where Bonnie Prince Charlie landed back on Skye with Highland heroine Flora MacDonald during their flight from government troops after defeat at Culloden. Flora is buried nearby in the the small graveyard at Kilmuir; one of the most interesting and beatiful in Scotland. The whole area is steeped in history.... from dinosaurs, Celts, Vikings and the Jacobites.
The main first-floor lounge and all four bedrooms have sea views. Sunsets over the Outer Hebrides from the picture windows of the upstairs family lounge have to be seen to be believed.... see our pictures!

Recently refurbished to a very high standard and comprehensively equipped with quality amenities throughout, you'll want for nothing!

Wildlife abounds and the lounge viewing scope offers the chance to get 'close up' to whales, porpoises, basking sharks, otters, eagles and other Scottish wildlife... as well as neighbouring sheep and Highland cattle. Corncrakes are in the surrounding fields.
Outside, the house has a safe and secure lawned garden enjoying both fabulous sea and mountain views. Ample garden seating allows you to relax and soak up the timeless views.
There is a fully equipped gas Barbecue with a shelter and an outside dining area perfect for dining 'al fresco' on long Skye summer evenings... the sun doesn't set until almost midnight!
Inside the Villa or in the lovely garden, Princes Point offers a superb holiday experience and a wonderful base from which to explore the Island.... or just stay in and 'chill'!

THE AREA... Princes Point Villa is situated on the north-eastern peninsula of Skye - called Trotternish. We believe it to be the most beautiful part of the whole island..... it has everything you could wish for on a Highland Holiday!The coastline is simply stunning from the broad sweep of sands at Staffin Bay to the dizzy heights of the famous cliffs at Kilt Rock. There is something to discover along almost every inch of the coastline and nearly all of it can be walked. The Rubha Hunish headland at Duntulm on the very northern tip of Skye is among the most beautiful and dramatic places in the whole of the british Isles. It's also a great place for whale watching! The 'back-bone' of the peninsula is the Trotternish Ridge which runs from Portree to Duntulm in the north and can be walked for all of it's 20 miles. It is acclaimed as one of the best and most dramatic long walks in Britain. Along the Ridge is the famous rock pinnacle called the 'Old Man of Storr and then above Flodigarry, are the renowned pinnacles of the Quiraing Mountain.... featured in many movies including 'Highlander'. So, the walking is just wonderful and almost unlimited..... dare we say...... better than the Cuillins? There is so much to do in Trotternish and so many ways to enjoy your Skye holiday. There are fascinating museums, famous Dinosaur finds and footprints, crofting community recreations, ruined castles, deserted mines and villages.... the list is endless and will keep you more than busy. The two main villages are the ferry port of Uig and the crofting village of Staffin. Both are thriving little communities with pubs, restaurants, wee tea rooms and a warm Highland welcome! The award-winning ales of the Uig brewery are never far away. You can hide away on deserted beaches, watch otters, eagles and dolphins.... take kayak or archery lessons at the Whitewave Outdoor Centre....or just relax in the wonderful peace and quiet that is this timeless and special part of our world.
