Holiday Cottages on the Isle of Skye

Self-catering holidays on the Isle of Skye

If you’re really looking to get away from it all and soak up some of the most beautiful scenery in the UK, then it’s time to get your bonnie boat to speed, like a bird on the wing, over the sea to Skye. Having said that, rowing all the way to Scotland might take a little longer than you’d like, which is why most people drive, take the train or catch a flight! Our extensive range of Isle of Skye cottages give you enough choice to choose the holiday HQ that’s best for you, whether you’re travelling with the family or escaping for a week with your loved one.

Skye was recently voted the 4th best island in the entire world by National Geographic, which means that it’s suddenly come on the radar as something of a holiday hotspot. Although it’s not renowned for tropical weather, Skye does see the mercury rising in the summer and many of our Isle of Skye cottages are close to some of the best beaches, such as Glen Brittle Beach and Talisker Bay. Pack your swimming costume or if you’re a bit of a wimp, a wetsuit!

A holiday in the Isle of Skye is ideal for those who like to get out and about. If you’ve booked a holiday cottage on the Isle of Skye for the whole tribe, you’ll find that there are plenty of family outings. Check out the Old Man of Storr, a huge pinnacle of rock and one of the island’s most famous walks. Sometimes kids need a bit more than stunning scenery, so a visit to the Serpentarium at Broadford gives them the opportunity to learn about and handle snakes, while the Otter Hides at Kylerhea offer the opportunity to see otters in the wild.

Because Skye is an island, there’s also plenty of scope to go whale-watching and seal-spotting. Most of our holiday cottages on the Isle of Skye are just a short trip to the coast, where you’ll find plenty of Moby Dick-style adventures available in the form of whale-watching excursions.
