The detail

Curl up next to the wood-burning stove at this cosy retreat on Scotland’s most romantic island, with views of the surrounding countryside, the waters of the Minch, and the Cuillin Mountains around you. At this beautifully designed, eco-friendly home you’ll feel thoroughly looked after with all modern conveniences and a king-sized bed to boot, making this a perfect retreat from a day of exploring the Isle of Skye.

Inside you’ll find The Lookout decorated in neutral, light colours mirroring the surrounding sea, sky and coast. The bedroom sleeps two and has Egyptian cotton sheets ready for your arrival. Adjacent is a large walk in shower, with bathrobes and soft towels. The open plan kitchen/living room has everything you need to cook a delicious feast. In the living area you’ll appreciate a fantastic wood-burning stove for keeping you warm on cool nights and wide windows that look out to land and sea that surrounds you. Step outside onto the deck to take in the night air and gaze at the clear skies above you.

You will be spoilt for choice at this location of things and places to go. We recommend you take a boat trip across Loch Coruisk from Elgol, amidst the dramatic landscape of Cuillins, where you can look for dolphins, eagles and perhaps even an elusive whale. Climb, walk or bike your way around Skye, ‘bag’ a Cuillin, or simply drive over to Dunvegan Castle to hear the history of the MacLeod Clan.

Whisky connoisseurs will love a trip to the Talisker Distillery, home of the world renowned drink, whilst all those called Donald (and those who love them) will appreciate the ‘Clan Donald Skye and the Museum of the Isles’ on the Sleat peninsula. For a luxurious meal, dine at two Michelin-starred restaurant The Three Chimneys, which is uniquely located within a former crofter’s stone cottage, and only a stone’s throw away from your home on the misty Isle.

This is the perfect home away from home on Skye. A peaceful and beautiful place with the most spectacular sea views. The property is modern, spotlessly clean and wonderfully cosy. Murray and Lorna’s care and attention to detail make this place truly special.

Fabulous, clean and cosy cottage with stunning view! The owners Lorna and Murray are friendly lovely people who will do anything to help. Nothing is too much trouble. Everything inside and out is just perfect!!! Skye is just wonderful for walking, climbing and exploring with incredible scenery which is easily accessible from the Lookout!! We had a fantastic week.

We had a great week at the lookout. The location is stunning but it is the care and attention to detail invested in making this a true home from home that marks this out as perhaps the loveliest holiday cottage we have ever visited … Thank you both
