Description

Cliff Cottage enjoys a quiet yet central location in the popular village of Kyle of Lochalsh. The cottage has been equipped and furnished to a very good standard to ensure as comfortable and relaxing a holiday as possible. Kyle is ideally placed for exploring some of the most spectacular scenery in the west Highlands and also many of the picturesque villages such as Plockton, Glenelg, Applecross and further north to Gairloch and Ullapool. Cliff Cottage is only a few minutes away by car from the bridge over to the enigmatic Isle of Skye. The surrounding area and Skye is an outdoor enthusiasts paradise with so many activities available including hill and mountain climbing in the magnificent Cuillins and the Five Sisters of Kintail, a wide range of watersports including fishing and sightseeing boat trips, kayaking and sailing in the waters surrounding the area and mountain biking trails for all levels of expertise. Skye and the west coast have many interesting historical sites such as Dunvegan Castle and gardens and also the stunning Eilean Donan Castle located on the edge of the village of Dornie – Eilean Donan is reputed to be one of the most photographed castles in the UK.
Take a trip up the ‘Pass of the Cattle’ leading to the lovely village of Applecross where you can take in the dramatic scenery on offer. There is a large network of National Trust nature trails around the area where you can take a leisurely stroll or take your bike out on them and perhaps catch sight of the wide range of wildlife, flora and fauna - an exhilarating experience! A must do is a visit to the Bright Water visitor centre in nearby Kyleakin & Eilean Ban, and White Island, a 6 acre nature haven nestled below the Skye bridge where you can learn about the wealth of wildlife and natural heritage of the area and where you can visit the Gavin Maxwell museum. There are so many activities and interesting places to explore you will be spoilt for choice and will suit all ages. Shop, pub and restaurant 750 yards.

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.
