Description

Detached thatched cottage for couples superbly positioned between open farmland and the sea makes the ultimate romantic venue in a spectacular setting

Finkle Cottage is an immaculately thatched cottage with stunning views across the sea. With thick stone walls, thatched roof and large wood burning stove; it provides the ultimate romantic venue in a totally unspoilt and spectacular setting. This holiday cottage has been lovingly rebuilt stone by stone from the original croft house and offers the very best of both worlds - a brand new cottage with the ultimate in olde worlde charm. Situated on a working croft, with Highland cattle grazing the surrounding hills, Finkle Cottage is superbly positioned between open farmland and the sea. Set in its own grounds, with a delightful stone patio that runs the length of the cottage, it provides a quiet and secluded location for couples or singles to escape from it all. With slate flooring and under floor heating throughout it is warm and cosy all year round. The main lounge has beautiful Chesterfield sofas and a large wood burning stove. There is a bright modern kitchen, a separate dining room and large double bedroom, all with the same superb sea views. A modern, fully tiled bathroom with bath and shower completes the picture.

    The owners were very welcoming. The cottage was very comfortable and had great views but was more remote than we realised. It was also down a short but rutted unmade track which we were unaware of when booking. Driving on it did damage the underside of the car.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your comments. Yes the Cottage is in a somewhat remote part of Skye, most of our guests prefer that and it is advertised as being in a secluded location which is at the top of the island. These guests informed us on arrival that they were then travelling from our location to the Isle of Islay and needing to connect with Ferry times would have to leave a day early. The distance from our cottage to the Ferry Terminal was in excess of 300 miles, we would have thought that this information was checked prior to them booking and we would have happily answered any questions. As for the road, the Cottage is on a 'working croft’ as stated on the website and it is an unadopted road and not maintained by the Council. We need access to the Croft and animals and tractors, trailers, livestock and deliveries all use it. We use this road at least twice daily to feed the stock in our Vauxhall Astra. We have had no other complaints. The damage to their car was repaired by the Finkle Cottage Owner. It appeared that the heat cover to the exhaust pipe had come adrift because the fastening bolt had become loosened by normal wear and tear. They inserted a bigger bolt to secure and there were no further problems reported during their stay. We are sorry they were unhappy with certain aspects of their stay and we were surprised by this as it contradicts the comments left in the visitor’s book.

    A fantastic experience all-round. Cottage cosy, full of character and ideally equipped and the location and sea views from every window simply superb. The warm welcome we received from the owners was just lovely (even a bottle of wine and local butter and eggs in the fridge!); they couldn't have been friendlier and more attentive. Only one complaint: one week not nearly enough!

    We had a lovely stay in Finkle cottage for our honeymoon. Although fairly expensive, the cottage is a really special place, combining modern comfort (underfloor heating, well specced kitchen and atmospherically lit throughout) with the traditional feel of a crofter's cottage, which was rebuilt brick by brick close to the site of an original. Sea views from every window allow you to simply sit and watch the drama of a sunset over the outer hebridies which are visible on the horizon some 20 miles away. Although it's location on the very northern point of the Trotternish peninsular means you will need to drive around a bit to get to the more dramatic landscapes of the Cuillins etc, the drives in themselves are treats. Stuart and Judy are the most welcoming of hosts, and it was lovely chatting to them and hearing their advice as to what can be done locally. Not-to-be-missed if staying at Finkle Cottage is the walk to Rubha Hunish, the northernmost point of the island, which we took on straight from the cottage door (approx. 5 hours, easy/boggy terrain with some scrambling if desired) Thank you very much for a lovely stay. Nick & Katharine
