Osdale Farmhouse is reached by an unmade road unsuitable for low cars, and nestles beneath the Macleod’s Tables, two flat topped mountains that dominate the north west of Skye. The chief Macleod originally built the stone built farmhouse in 1870s for Donald ’Osdale’ who farmed a huge flock of sheep on the surrounding clan land. It fell into ruin on his death and was only rebuilt in 2006 by the previous owners. It is now a comfortable cottage that retains much of its original character and charm. A great place to sit, unwind and enjoy the far-reaching views or get outside and enjoy the walks from the doorstep.
Today Osdale Farmhouse enjoys a modern standard, whilst retaining its highland character and charm. The open plan living areas benefit from underfloor heating and the living room has a large fireplace with a wood burner to relax by when the evenings draw in. The kitchen is a well-equipped, sociable place with a large practical boot room leading off it providing plenty of room for coats, muddy kit and muddy dogs.
The farmhouse continues to be surrounded by sheep and cattle and is visited by wildlife that includes red deer and eagles. If you stay at the right time you can help yourself to the wild raspberries that grow on the plot and sit amongst the colourful fuchsias.
Your only neighbour is Osdale Byre, which is at the other end of the same generous plot and the owners who live nearby and are happy to help with any queries you may have. Otherwise, the cottage sits on its own amongst the stunning landscape, making it a remarkable spot to enjoy the Highlands. However, it is easy to get to civilisation again and the cottage is close to some of Skye’s best restaurants, Dunvegan is readily accessible where you can explore the castle and visit the local shops and cafés. North west Skye offers plenty of outdoor activities including climbing and coasteering. Beach ¾ mile. Shop, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.
Osdale Farmhouse can be booked together with Osdale Byre (UK5851) to accommodate up to 8 guests.

    Loved this cottage from the minute we walked in. A good atmosphere and well laid out with everything we needed. It has been thoughtfully designed and pleasant to be in. It was cosy and retained the heat well with enough logs supplied for two or three evening fires. The underfloor heating downstairs worked very well especially in the morning when it was a bit chilly outside. There is plenty of seating in the lounge and a good selection of books, c d’s and DVD’s to keep you occupied. The bathroom is accessed from the lounge through the “ boot room” which has plenty space for hanging jackets, coats etc. and a second separate toilet is located beside a washing machine and tumble drier also off the boot room. The kitchen finishes off the open plan downstairs and has plenty space for storage. Lovely cooker and oven too. There is no toilet upstairs which did not cause us any bother and the two bedrooms are located at either end of a wooden staircase. A small niggle is the WiFi which was very poor. Unable to use at all. Loved the peace and quiet and would love to return to this lovely property next year.

    Lovely cottage with stunning views. Excellent communication with the owners who provide a welcome pack of milk, butter, eggs and bread to get you started. Very comfortable and private house.

    Wonderful location, beautifully maintained and equipped farmhouse/cottage. Great walks in the immediate vicinity and all of Skye less than an hour’s drive away. Only downside: my partner found the bed a bit too firm: it was perfect for me!

    We had a great time at Osdale farmhouse. The livingroom is very cosy und the kitchen well eqipped, so cooking for the family was easy and everybody felt at home. The Interior is very worthy and nice and shows many local specialities like pottery. The beds are very comfortable. We enjoyed drinking the clean and fresh water and eat raspberrys, witch grow near the house. A walk to the summit of McLeods Table in the evening was an adventure. We hope to come back soon, thanks a lot for providing this very nice place to stay!

    We really enjoyed our stay at Osdale Farmhouse. A lovely cottage in a beautiful location on a spectacular Island. The cottage was very comfortable and had all that we wanted / needed for our week on Skye. The owners had kindly left some supplies for us when we arrived which was very much appreciated. The cottage is ideally placed to visit many of the popular spots on the island with a 30 minute drive. It is perfect if you are looking for peace and quiet in beautiful surroundings but do not expect to find a pub, restaurant or shop without a short drive. We loved it there and would definitely go back again.

    Lovely location and views. Unfortunately previous dog owners had not picked up after their dogs in the garden. Comfortable cottage for a Christmas break, we enjoyed our stay.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; I am sorry you discovered that a previous guest had not cleared up after their dog in the garden. Since taking responsibility for the Osdale cottages in March we ask all guests to clear up after their pets and provide poo bags and a bin for disposal. We also check the area ourselves.
