The stresses and unease of contemporary urban life simply dissipate as you step onto the island, knowing its yours and yours alone for the duration of your stay.

While the island itself is private, occupied only by you and whoever you bring with you, the region of Isle of Skye is populated by a thriving community. Visitors flock to this stunning area from all over the world, drawn by the unique topography, gorgeous seas and skies, and relaxed way of life.

While the cottage is intensely private, you arent cut off from society, with several bars and hotels within walking distance. The closest spots to eat and drink are the Eilean Iarmain Hotel and Am Praban Pub, both found by the pier, and well worth visiting for a pint of local ale and a meal. A little further afield is Kinloch Lodge with its excellent restaurant, and two further hotels, Toravaig and The Duisdale Hotel. That said, most guests find very little reason to leave the immediate area, fishing on the private beach, walking along the rugged coastline, and spending their evenings on the terrace or curled up by the stove with a good book, good friend and good whisky.
