Description

A cosy wood burner and central heating make this a most welcoming and cosy holiday hideaway on the stunningly beautiful Isle of Skye.

Acessed via a rough track, Crofters Cottage is a delightful 100-year old cottage that oozes charm. With whitewashed stone walls, beamed ceilings, latch doors and a wood burner in a lovely stone fireplace, it makes a most welcoming and cosy holiday hideaway. The windows in the property provide spectacular views. With both coastal and mountain views, it is nestled at the base of the Trotternish Ridge within a traditional crofting township with cattle and sheep happily grazing along the way. This is a very popular walking area on the island and the route runs from The Storr through the striking Quiraing at Staffin and onto Flodigarry. Staffin Bay beach is just a short drive from the cottage with a combination of sand and pebbles, and has fabulous views over Staffin Island onto Gairloch and the Torridon Mountains. There is a small slipway where you can launch kayaks or a small boat. An abundance of wildlife can be seen in the area including eagles, fulmars, kestrels, otters, deer and so much more. The Staffin Museum is a must as it contains an excellent collection of local geological and fossil specimens. Other attractions include many historic sites, castles, brochs, standing stones, gardens and a whisky distillery, or take a boat trip, go pony trekking and kayaking, or just be amazed at the dramatic scenery and seascapes. Beach 550 yards. Shop 875 yards, pub and restaurant 3 miles.

    Overall, would stay again at the cottage, but would need to be assured that there was an internet connection (and the promised free wi-fi), although I understand the problems were beyond the control of the owners. Communication regarding this and the difficulty of access - up a VERY steep, rough track - could have been a lot better! Location at Staffin was superb, lovely views from the garden. Don't rely on the TV for the evening entertainment, it only has about 22 Freeview channels ( discounting a few radio channels), though again I realize the remote location has a lot to do with that, just making people aware! Although there are a couple of local grocery stores, be aware that the nearest supermarket is in Portree, approximately 18 miles away, so stock up well! There are some nice touches within the cottage re the decor and ornaments, which I think puts it a notch above your normal rental cottage, and it was good to see a welcome tray in the kitchen which incuded a cake, some cookies, the usual tea and coffee capsules, AND a bottle of wine! We didn't avail ourselves of the wine, but the idea is a good one. If you are looking for a relatively remote cottage to use as a base for exploring the north of the island, you could do a lot worse than choosing Crofter's Cottage. Best of all, hardly saw a midge all week!

    we arrived to a note saying that sorry there is no internet but that it was hoped to be fixed. It was not and we recieved no further update. Previous feedback suggests that this has been a problem for previous guests and it would appear that either the package at the cottage is woefully inadequate or that it is no longer in place. We would not have booked if we had known this. Mobile signal was also poor which would have been an issue in an emergency. we were also unhappy with the couch and chair which were both uncomfortable and the drive which is quite ridiculous and really only accessible by a 4x4. Apart from this the cottage is beautiful with fabulous views and lovely outside area.

    Wonderful welcoming, cosy and well equipped cottage. Loved the small touches, hill views, peaceful sleeps and local wild..(and not so wild)..life. Good location for amazing walks on the Trotternish Ridge after which the stonking hot bath and woodburning stove are incredibly welcome. Local amenities are few nearby, but within a short walk you'll find a Post Office, a general store with takeaway food and petrol, and a bus stop for Portree. Twenty minute walk away is Staffin, for bigger grocery shop and The Kilmartin licensed Restaurant (recommended). Absolutely fell in love with Crofter's Cottage and will definitely try and return next time we need to unwind.

    The only thing that wasn't on booking was that there was no dogs aloud upstairs. If this had been on initial booking site we wouldn't of booked this cottage.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner: Thank you for the fantastic scores you have awarded Crofters Cottage. Pets are definitely more than welcome at the property however, we have to be mindful of guests who don’t have pets therefore we kindly ask that pets are not allowed upstairs on the beds or on any of the furniture. This information is stated within the Agency’s Booking Terms & Conditions and applies to every property within their portfolio. We don't plan to make any changes to these requests, in respect of all those who don't have pets.

    Beautiful little cottage in a amazing landscape. Perfect for us two. It had all the equipment we needed, except an axe. We bought firewood for the fireplace but it was to big and we needed an axe to cut it to small pieces. Otherwise it was just great.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner. Thank you so much for the positive feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. The wood burner is single size as its only a little lounge and large logs probably wont fit. By highlighting the no axe issue, if clients wish to bring one that's great information to share. Due to health and safety we would not supply such equipment for fear of injury. We hope you return to Skye to explore again soon.

    This is one of the best holiday cottages in which we have stayed (if not the best!) When holidaying in Skye, look no further for a comfortable base which the owners have equipped with every amenity and a superb attention to detail, all that one could wish and more. Beautiful coastal area and within driving distance of superb walks
