Description

Brogaig Cottages are rather unique as they are built from corrugated steel and are architecturally designed, taking aspects from traditional crofters’ cottages into consideration with all up to date requirements. Quiraing (ref UK5330) is a more traditional design, keeping the appearance of a crofters’ cottage. The open plan living area is spacious, bright, stylishly furnished and equipped, with a multi-fuel burner and underfloor heating taking all your comforts into consideration. Storr (ref UK5331) has a more modern design, with a panoramic floor to ceiling window. These detached cottages are situated on a working croft in the crofting township of Brogaig-Staffin, at the foothills of the Quiraing which has the most dramatic landscape on Skye. Views over Staffin Bay and the hills beyond can be enjoyed from the comfort of the cottages. The owners who live nearby, are both local, native Gaelic speakers, and are on hand to assist with any queries and to give advice on places to go and see.
There is walking in the area to suit all abilities, from low level coastal to more challenging walking on the Trotternish Ridge. The famous dinosaur footprints on Staffin Beach are only a short walk from the cottages. An abundance of wildlife can be seen in the area, including eagles, fulmars, kestrels, otters, deer and so much more. The Staffin Museum is a must as it contains excellent collections of local geological and fossil specimens. There is so much to discover throughout the island, such as historic sites, castles, brochs, gardens, whisky distilleries, boat trips, pony trekking, kayaking and dramatic scenery and seascapes. Beach 1 mile. Shop and restaurant 1 mile, pub 3 miles.
Quiraing (ref UK5330) can be booked with Storr (ref UK5331) to accommodate up to 4 guests.

About the local area

Skye is one of the largest and best known Scottish islands and is particularly famous for its spectacular mountain scenery. It is also home to some dramatic history, diverse wildlife and rugged mountain beauty. The island of Skye makes for a great holiday destination with many visitor attractions, endless walking routes and fabulous restaurants.

Due to its popularity with tourists, you will find many craft shops and cottage museums. As for sports, you can visit the swimming pool in Portree, play golf at Sconser and Skeabost or go pony trekking. Watersports available on the island include diving, canoeing, windsurfing and yachting. Skye is also the ideal place for fishing and birdwatching.

Skye is easily accessible by either road or ferry. The road bridge is accessible from the Kyle of Lochalsh on mainland Scotland making it ideal for a day trip as well as a longer stay.

Lochalsh is truly highland territory full of clans and castles, hills of heather and views of lochs to the sea beyond. Visit the village of Plockton, a picture perfect location or Scotland's highest waterfall, The Five Sisters of Kintail. Where ever you go you are sure to be surrounded by some truly awesome scenery.

The Western Isles is a chain of islands also known as the Outer Hebrides. The main destination is the Isle of Lewis, a fairly flat island with many spectacular sandy beaches, a rugged coastline and a landscape that is worth investigating. Visitors will enjoy lots of activities including fishing, cycling, walking and bird watching. There are many other standing stones and archaeological monuments to visit too.

The rest of the western Isles can be explored using Lewis as a base. Most of the surrounding islands are covered in a blanket of peat meaning they are teaming with wildlife. Spot birds such as Kittiwakes, Guillemots, Kestrels, Hen Harriers and Redshank. With any luck you may even see otters, seals, eagles or dolphins off shore. In the summer months there are many colourful wild flowers to be seen and if you visit later in the season you can enjoy the heather in full bloom.
