The Old Cottage Coastal Cottage description

Holiday home
The Old Cottage was once a humble crofter's dwelling, but it has now been lovingly restored and carefully renovated to become a delightfully comfortable holiday home in the tranquil hamlet of Suladale on the Isle of Skye. The owners have refurbished the cottage to ensure that it stays in keeping with its traditional Scottish character and surroundings, and the attractive accommodation includes a multi-fuel stove in the open plan living area, and a bedroom with four poster bed. Anyone looking for a romantic getaway will find it at The Old Cottage. The owners have created a warm and welcoming holiday cottage which reflects the special magic of the Isle of Skye.

Area
The crofters' hamlet of Suladale is a charming place over the sea to Skye situated between Portree and Dunvegan. A number of working crofts with livestock can still be seen here. Skye offers numerous visitor attractions including walking, fishing, bird-watching and horse riding at the stables close by. There's so much to see and do - take a boat trip out to sea from Portree; explore Dunvegan Castle, or climb up the Cuillin Mountains. The fabulous summer ceilidhs and lively pub sessions are not to be missed on any visit to this area, and they are a fantastic experience for locals and island visitors alike! Find out where the local tipple comes from at the popular brewery in Uig. Portree offers a number of fine restaurants, a good assortment of interesting shops and workshops which showcase local skills in arts and crafts.

Region
From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain's best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.

The Old Cottage was beautiful, restful and calming, with stunning surroundings. It provided everything you need for a comfortable stay. It is perfectly situated for touring the the beautiful Isle of Skye, with its amazing scenery and so much too see and do. We loved the cottage so much we stayed two extra days and didn't want to leave and we are hoping to return very soon. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

The Old Cottage is absolutely perfect!! We had been there before so knew what to expect, but especially in the winter with the coal/log fire, it was brilliant. We will definitely be back!

It was a perfect week! We enjoyed the isle, the sea, the people, the cottage, and last but not least - the whiskey!
Mrs Laval

The cottage is a delight, and well-placed for views over the landscape, whatever the weather. It's well-equipped and cosy, and close to local amenities whilst retaining a feeling of remoteness. Excellent location for exploring the beautiful north of Skye.

The remote nature of the cottage was lovely. Beautiful scenery as well.

We very much liked the island in general and the location of the cottage in relation to the activities we had planned whilst we were up there.
Mr Tooth

We were very pleased with the location of the cottage found the views amazing. We were very comfortable instantly felt at home. We particularly liked the coal fire. It was lovely to have seating areas on three sides of the cottage to catch the morning sun and sunset.

The Old Cottage is lovely. Beautifully presented and in a great location for visiting the north of Skye. Would have no hesitation in recommending. Highlights of the holiday included The Lookout Bothy at Rubha Huish. Sadly no whales in sight but a great hideaway from the midges!

The cottage was beautifully renovated and so peaceful. It was a great place from which to explore different parts of Skye. Portree was also not far away which was useful for food shopping. We enjoyed having fires in the evening.

Wonderful location and property. Shortage of children a true blessing! The Sea Breeze at Portree Harbour was our number 1 choice for eating.

The cottage was in an environment that really suited my husband and I. It was quiet, peaceful yet easy to get to and from when we went out, and we travelled all over the Island in the week we were there.

The cottage is in a beautiful location and is ideally situated to explore the North of the Island. It is comfortably furnished and makes a good base to tour from.
Mrs Leslie

The cottage was fantastic - as you walk through the front door you just have to go wow, and the location could not have been better. Skye is the best place to be. Would go back tomorrow, or even buy the cottage if it were for sale.

The decor of the cottage was beautiful and the location was perfect for exploring the Isle of Skye. I would definitely recommend this to family and friends.

About 15 mins North of Portree, the location of this cottage allows you to access both Dunvegan and Uig very easily, which opens up the beautiful West and East sides of the island to you. Great access to the Cullins too. The cottage is beautifully set up, with a great sofa, fire and four poster bed. It would have been nice to have a table to eat from, but we brought the garden furniture inside. We would recommend walking from the cottage to Lynhead Point and around the moors to the Iron Age Broch and visiting the hamelt of Stein for a pint! A wonderful place to stay.
Mr Birt

The perfect, secluded location of the cottage.

Location - very quiet. Large, comfortable bed. Lots of walking in the area - no need to go very far afield.

Cosy lounge, comfy bed. Bit on the cool side but once you figure out the heating it's alright. Great if you like an open fire. If you stay in May you will be woken each morning by the sound of a cuckoo in the trees outside the bedroom! Idyllic, Local supermarket is only in Portree 20 minutes away!

The Isle of Skye in a word, wow! beautiful scenery which just takes your breath away, and at times all four seasons in one day! The cottage is isolated, the nearest main shop being a 15 minute drive away in Portree, but that is all part of the charm. This really is a perfect little hideaway for 2 - you really wouldn't want anyone else with you in this romantic setting! Be warned though, having stayed in other cottages before, i was surprised to find there was no welcome pack, no milk, bread, coffee or tea, and only enough coal for 1 fire, so pick up your provisions en route.

The cottage was lovely, just right for a couple. Weather wasn't quite what it should have been for august so it was lovely to return in the evening and light the fire.

We had a lovely holiday in the cottage at suladale, it exceeded our expectations, the walk over the moors behind the cottage to the Iron age broch was a particular delight if wet in places

Lovely cottage, very quiet. Lovely couple very helpful would love to stay there again. Negative side. No washing machine or nowhere to wash or dry clothes. Had to go to portree to get our clothes washed and dried.

Fantastic Location, clean, comfortable and the weather was good as well. Would definitely stay here again. If I had to point out one thing that could be improved it is the fridge, one with a small freezer box would be handy.

Well located property with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The cottage makes a great base to explore the north of the island and has beautiful outlooks.

This cottage was set in a beautiful location and reasonably well appointed. The quality of kitchen utentials was poor. The seating arangements were compromised by having an uncomfortabl, for sitting and I suspect sleeping on, bed settee. This cottage could warrent the same rental or more as a 2 berth but with a higher standard of utilities. I would reccommend it to friends having told them of the minor negative parts.

Booked the cottage through Sykes Cottages. Very prompt and good service. Directions to Cottage on the Isle of Skye were accurate and with aid of SatNav arrived no problem. After a 10 hour journey we arrived at destination and were pleasantly surprised. There were only two images of the cottage in the brochure which didn't do it justice and these were external shots. So you can imagine we were a little anxious on arrival. The cottage was neat and tidy inside and out and was set back on a hill with a steepish driveway and gate. Internally it was nicely decorated with a welcoming open fire. The kitchen area was small but functional, bathroom was adequate but well equipped. The one bedroom was impressive with a four poster bed. Decent TV with Sky channels. The cottage at Suladale is at the northern end of Skye but is only 20mins driv to Portree which is great for fish and chips. We went in March, out of season for boat rides, so i'd recommend going in late spring. Also take the A87 to UIG, then A855 around the northern coastline of Skye past "The old man of Storr'. Stunning!! A few hours drive from cottage and your in the Western Highlands which are mind blowing. A trip to Loch Ness and Urchart Castle is a must, allow a day for that. Go to Plockton just past the main bridge at Skye (Kyle of Lochalsh). Again out of season but a stunning little village and a late spring or summer visit would be great. For: Peace and tranquility. Cottage great although not ideal for a family of 4, more a romantic getaway for couples. Western Highlands. Talisker Whisky distillery on Skye. The roads in late winter are really quiet. Old Man Of Storr. Dunvegan Castle. Against: Not enough pics of cottage which is better than in brochure. Metal pans, take your own nonstick. Electric cookers take forever. Sofa bed not ideal to sleep on. Unless your a hardy type go in late spring/summer as a winter visit to Skye will literally blow you away.
