Skylark Cottage is a picture perfect thatched cottage; the epitome of a dream croft cottage on the beautiful Isle of Skye. It is set in its own pretty garden grounds with stunning views across the sea to the hills beyond.  The cottage was renovated and painstakingly restored by its current owners and provides an ideal romantic getaway for couples in a superb setting. The main accommodation is open-plan. The lounge is accessed from the dining area through an arched wall. This lovely, welcoming room has large French doors leading onto a delightful patio area with picnic table and chairs; a wonderful spot to sit and drink in the views and experience the stunning sunsets over the bay. The kitchen is well-equipped, with a separate dining table and chairs. The double bedroom is attractively presented and a sofa-bed in the lounge is available for extra guests. Cottage gardens surround the property, mainly laid to lawn with flowering shrubs, bounded by original dry stone-walls. Situated in the small hamlet of Breakish, just 5 miles from the Skye bridge, it is an ideal location for exploring the whole the Isle of Skye and beyond.
