  The Detail...

With some of the most spectacular views in the British Isles, this highland Crofter's Cottage occupies a romantic and atmospheric position on the magical Isle of Skye. This is an exquisite property with an interior befitting of its spectacular location. It has been fitted and furnished to the highest specification giving guests high-end luxury, style and comfort. Guests arrive through the stone entrance way which was painstakingly constructed by the owner, a local stone mason. And this exquisite property has an interior befitting of its spectacular location.

Stepping into the semi-open plan living and dining area, visitors are immediately drawn to the three metre by three metre sliding windows which give views of the inspiring Cullins. On milder days, slide back the doors and enjoy a drink on the paved and grassed area, and on wilder days get cosy on the sofa and enjoy the weather from the warmth and comfort of the croft. Underfloor heating keeps toes cosy and a wood burner adds atmosphere and extra warmth.

The kitchen and dining room has two exceptionally large windows which brings the outdoors right into the room. Azure cabinets mirror the Skye skies and the kitchen is exceptionally kitted-out with everything guests could need for creating culinary magic - as well as a Caple wine cooler and Lavazza coffee machine and milk frother.

The two bedrooms are also on the ground floor, with all beds dressed in Egyptian Cotton with Harris Tweed furnishings. Prints and paintings by local artists adorn the walls.Both have luxurious en-suite bathrooms with Grohe power showers, Highland Soap toiletries and waffle bathrobes. The master bedroom is a king size and the second bedroom can be made up as a twin room, or super king size, and they both have flat screen smart televisions.

Daytimes can be filled exploring the island and admiring the views. Nearby is the Dunvegan Castle and Gardens, nature lovers will be awed by the birdlife and a boat can be taken to the formerly-inhabited to St Kilda. Walkers will want to get up to the Maidens or Macleods Tables, or head to the Coral Beaches with its clear blue waters, a great place for a wild swim where the Gulf Stream makes the waters slightly warmer.

Visitors to Skye are spoilt for choice when it comes to eating out. The Three Chimneys restaurant is 10 minutes away, The Dunvegan and The Old School restaurant are both firm favourites and also worth a visit.
