Right next to the shore - along which you can walk to the local Inn. Simple, spacious and basic. This bothy is our former home decluttered. One large, light open-plan room. Small range & wood-burner provides heating and hot water. Composting toilet.
“Perfect wee spot right by the ocean for a quiet and very affordable break away, close to Portree for all the main shops and supplies if needed too. Great host that was a lot of help and also very generous with help and advice, well worth listening too. Would have already booked another trip if it wasn’t so far booked up lol, honestly didn’t want to leave. Great place”
TINHOUSE is an architectural award winning luxury holiday cottage for 2. Located in North West Skye and deal for foodies, walkers, or simply for those that want a secluded break in the extraordinary landscape of Skye. Finished with the highest quality furnishing and fittings, the house exudes a relaxed style, and enjoys a panoramic view over the seascape of north west Skye.
“My wife and I stayed at Tinhouse for the last week of our honeymoon and it was absolutely perfect. The home is tucked away along the hillside featuring a spectacular view of the ocean and cliffside across the bay, as well as the surrounding greenery and wildflowers. The house itself is crafted with the surrounding landscape in mind featuring natural elements, bright color pops, and windows running alongside the neighboring views. We found so much peace and refuge within Tinhouse home that it was hard to ever leave, but we also really enjoyed our time exploring the Isle of Skye and it was a great home base to visit some renowned views and hikes on the island. Overall, we had the best stay and cannot thank Alan and Gill enough for their hospitality, great communication, list of recommendations, and for creating such a wonderful home for visitors!”
The Blacksmith's bothy is a traditional black house with thick lime washed stone walls. These compliment a modern kitchen and wood burning stove. Set in a peaceful location, the building is over 100 years old. It is surrounded by croft land and spectacular cliff top walks. Situated very close to Spar cave and 5 minutes drive to Elgol. A private, screened deck area and hot tub is adjacent to the bothy with sea views through a wooded glade. Perfect as a romantic retreat.
“A fantastic, secluded place to stay in an out of the way place with lovely scenery. Log burner was lovely after being out in the rain all day! James was a great host and very friendly, his directions were easy to follow and we found it with no problem. Go well prepared and stock up with food, nearest shops are 30 mins away in winter months! Would recommend for a restful, away from it all, few days.”
