Description

Skye Snug is on the northern edge of Portree, just off the Staffin Road, located in a quiet cul-de-sac. Within easy walking distance to the town centre, staying at Skye Snug is a rare treat on the Isle of Skye because you’re able to walk to and back from the pub and a meal out in the evening.

Skye Snug is a perfect base from which to see as much as you can during your visit. The owners have given this wee cottage some care and attention and have created a lovely place to base yourself for a holiday on Skye. There’s a spacious living/dining room, a great kitchen with access to the back garden. And there are two comfortable double bedrooms with lots of wardrobe space.

The location is also very ideal due to its very easy access to some of the Isle of Skye’s most well-known sights. The trailhead for the Old Man of Storr is only 5 miles up the road, so you can be at this other worldly landmark before the crowds! The Quiraing, Staffin Bay, Fairy Glen, Brothers’ Point are also all close to Skye Snug being located on the Trotternish Peninsula. You’re also close to the hiking routes into the Cuillin mountains, just under ten miles to the south of Portree. The Fairy Pools accessed by almost passing the door of the Talisker Distillery (it would be rude not to nip in for a dram!) are definitely worth a trip, as is Glenbrittle beyond the pools. In the north west of the island across the other well-known peninsulas of Waternish and Duirinish you have more amazing places to see and explore. The village of Stein with its inn and Michelin starred restaurant. Dunvegan Castle and nearby Coral Beach. Macleod’s Tables and the Maidens on the coast. As well as iconic Point Neist Lighthouse in far reaches of Skye. You need a week, probably two (and possibly a lifetime!) to explore this great island.

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.
