The Old Dye House is set in a quiet location overlooking the sea, and on good days you can see the Outer Hebrides far in the distance. This detached cottage for two, adjacent to the owner’s home, is spacious and warm and has been sympathetically renovated and furnished to a very good standard. Beautifully presented with tasteful use of colours and textures, The Old Dye House makes the perfect base from which to explore the lovely Isle of Skye and the west coast.

Waternish itself is home to several art galleries, a family run sheepskin tannery, which gives guided tours, the oldest inn on Skye and a Michelin star restaurant. There are also plenty of walks available nearby for all abilities and the best sunsets on the island. Set towards the northern end of the island, all the attaractions Skye has to offer are within easy driving distance. Take a trip to Dunvegan Castle and gardens, and after enjoying that you can take a walk along the shoreline to Coral Beach – just stunning! Visit Portree, the island’s capital, with its wide variety of shops, art galleries, craft shops and some great places to eat and drink. A trip from Portree to the Trotternish Peninsula is well recommended. You will see dramatic scenery, and one of the most famous walks, the Old Man of Storr, which is a large pinnacle of rock and can be seen for many miles. Part of the Trotternish Ridge was created by a massive ancient landslide leaving probably what is one of the most photographed landscapes in the world.

To the southern end of the island you will find the Sleat Peninsula, known as the ‘Garden of Skye’, where you can visit Armadale Castle along with some amazing places to eat. There is a large variety of outdoor pursuits available including hill and mountain climbing in the famous Cuillins, sea trips, fishing, kayaking, sailing and mountain biking. Take a stroll along some of the many quiet and unspoilt beaches which surround the rugged coastline. For the less energetic, sit back and relax in front of the wood burner and enjoy the everchanging vistas. Shop 21 miles, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.

    Very pleasant cottage and location. Very clean and finished to a very high standard. Outstanding views of Loch Bay and the sea beyond-whales, golden eagles and deer all spotted from the living room window.

    Beautiful comfortable cottage spacious for two downstairs not much head room up but the views from the skylights made up for that small detail. Warm welcome but then very private. Immaculately clean lots of hot water and very well equipped kitchen apart from small under work top fridge. We took plenty of supplies because of remote location and we don’t like to do much driving once we arrive. luckily being November we were able to leave some outside in a cool bag. Excellent phone reception and WiFi plus lovely pub and takeaway just up the road.

    My husband and I (and our two pugs) had a wonderful week at The Old Dye House. The cottage has everything you could possibly need. The views (from every window) are spectacular and in the evenings we enjoyed curling up in front of the log burner with a glass of wine.
