Visitors to the Isle of Skye and to Stone Cottage will not be disappointed. Conveniently positioned mere steps from the small train station, it is situated in one of the Island’s most picturesque spots with uninterrupted views from the bedrooms, dining area and the living areas, overlooking the Southern part of Skye (Sleat) and over to the Isles of Rhum and Eigg.
The cottage has been restored by the current owner with the main outcome being to preserve the cottage and the byre. Once through the porch you are welcomed by the living area which is the full width of the original house and complete with a wood burner at the far end and comfortable leather sofas on either side. You will find a bookcase full of books, games, DVDs and an album describing the renovation process that the owner went through for over two years to get the house up to the luxury standard it is. There is also a top of the range Hi-Fi (Cambridge Audio with Bowers and Wilkins Speakers) with an eclectic Vinyl collection and bluetooth connectivity to allow you to play your own music.
The kitchen and dining areas have a full picture window for you to watch the wildlife, and also where you will see some wonderful night skies. On this floor is a bedroom (originally the byre) with very quirky windows, along with a wet room. Heading up the bespoke staircase you will see some of the artifacts that the owner discovered whist renovating the house. There are two bedrooms, again with lovely southerly views from the master, and a beautiful bathroom with a round bath. Outside, the garden is enclosed, and the smell of Skye air cannot be found anywhere else; it makes you feel alive, and during your stay you will see all four seasons, possibly in the one day.
There are walks form the cottage to the nearby Spar Caves, where you can take a coastal walk to Elgol and to the beach. There are fairy pools at the foot of the Blaven mountain which is a short drive from Glasnakille. Other things to look out for nearby is Dun Grugaig Iron Age Fort which is perched on the top of a cliff. Whether you decide to go for a drive and visit the rest of the Island, or if you want to stay closer to home, you will have an amazing time creating wonderful memories of your trip to Skye and to the Stone Cottage.
