Description

Dating back to 1857, Waterside Cottage is a former crofting cottage that the owners have lovingly restored and filled with both contemporary and antique furniture. The cottage is perfect for a large family, two families or friends. Two dogs are welcome, but they’re only allowed downstairs and the charming cottage garden. Waterside Cottage is an outstanding short break or week long holiday base. Within the attractive crofting cottage the interiors are fresh and pleasing on the eye. For an old cottage there’s an enormous amount of natural light spilling into every room. The living/dining room is a highlight, and a place that you’ll thoroughly enjoy recharging in after long days out exploring the island.

Situated right beside Broadford Bay, the seascape is constantly changing as it very tidal. At low tide, there’s an expansive sandy beach to explore right from the garden, and at high tide the water laps the border of the garden. The cottage is different every hour of the day! Waterside Cottage is opposite a fantastic hotel, bar and restaurant, and only a short walk into the centre of Broadford where there are amenities. Being on the outskirts of Broadford, Waterside Cottage makes for the perfect base from which to explore all corners of the Isle of Skye. Local highlights include the road to Elgol, from which you can climb Blaven, one of the UKs finest peaks. And also the village of Elgol itself, enjoying possibly the best views of any island settlement. The Sleat Peninsula is close to the cottage too, and there are many off the beaten path sights to see. Only 20 minutes from the cottage is Sligachan, where all the famous routes into the Cuillin start, so you’re within easy reach of some world-class hiking. Portree and the famous northern peninsulas are reached within 40 minutes.

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.
