This totally unique property, perfect for couples, is eco-friendly, bijou and stylish, making it a very cosy, comfortable holiday home. Enjoy the views over the open countryside from the decking. Situated within the peaceful scattered crofting community of Minginish, this is where the Cuillins are to be found. This hugely impressive mountain range is the spiritual heartland of the island. Eagles are frequently seen in this area, as well as resident hares, red deer, otters and so much more in the way of wildlife. Talisker Distillery, Skye’s only distillery, and an inn which has regular live music are only a short drive away. Just a five-minute walk from Skye Eco Pod, you can sample home cooked food and an excellent selection of whisky and gin. The walking is superb for all levels, with Talisker Bay, Glenbrittle Beach, Fairy Pools, the Cuillin Mountains and so much more. A trip to Dunvegan Castle and Coral Beach, Neist Point Lighthouse or the beautiful Waternish Peninsula are all recommended and are all on the west side of the island. Take a sea trip from Portree to see the varied sea and bird life and also enjoy the beauty of the rugged coastline. To the north of Portree is the Trotternish Peninsula, which boasts some of Skye’s most stunning scenery. To the south of the island is Broadford, where you will find ‘The Garden of Skye’. Here you can visit the ruins of Armadale Castle and its lovely gardens. Skye has so much to offer for the outdoor enthusiast, with hill walking, fishing, boat trips, kayaking, pony trekking, as well as the opportunity to discover the many craft/art galleries and restaurants for a more relaxing time and to be awestruck by the dramatic scenery.

    Wonderful stay. The Pod is beautifully furnished with everything you would need and more. Very cosy but surprisingly roomy. In a stunning location.

    This is a great place to stay on Skye . Traditional cottages looked a bit dark and there were only two of us. The Pod was clean light and airey with a very nice (if a little compact) wc and shower room. The quality of the fixtures and fittings was high and we did appreciate having a dishwasher. The bed was a kingsize and very comfortable. Towels and bed linen were provided. There was a deck for sitting out (when the midges permit) and a panoramic view. The pod was snug and warm and on the one occasion we used the heating it was soon warm. It would be good all the year round. There are very good local walks without having to drive and fine mountain and coastal views. We saw a sea eagle from our deck! Thank you Jan for a memorable stay.Highly recommended and very good value.

    We had a lovely week at Skye Eco Pod, the owner was very helpful and accommodating, the pod had everything for a comfortable stay, we were disappointed that the local bar had closed for the season and the other was not walking distance. The pod is in a good position for exploring Skye, car is essential.
