Set at the very tip of the Strathaird Peninsula on the beautiful Isle of Skye, the rural crafting community of Elgol lies at the end of a single track road which runs from the village of Broadford. Quiet, peaceful and amid stunning scenery, Elgol makes a wonderful base for those seeking to get away from it all and rediscover nature. Experienced hill walkers and climbers have a choice of mountain trails to explore, while a picnic by the side of the Loch Coruisk is an ideal afternoon treat. Fishing boats operate from Elgol's small quay, and can transport visitors across the water and past the seal colony. For amenities including pubs, restaurants, shops and a petrol station, Broadford is just 15 miles from Elgol.

    We were spoilt by this beautiful property, and the weather was a magnificent 10/10 while we were there. The views? Down right amazing, and the fresh air was very restorative. It was lovely to get a welcoming phone call from the owner on arrival, and any queries I directed toward the housekeeper were met with prompt, friendly responses. My husband-- a chef by trade-- remarked how extensive the range of kitchen equipment there was. Shop at the nearby village of Broadford's CO-OP as you go up, it will save heaps if car space, and the store is a very large and well-equipped one. Also, the 15 mile journey between Broadford and the crofting community of Elgol is a long, windy and one roaded, and make a the journey feel much longer. If the house doesn't wow you, the views will. And if THEY don't, you have no business being there. Thank you for such an amazing stay.

    The house had everything we needed. Comfortable beds and plenty of bathrooms. It is remote enough to feel like you are away from everything but Broadford which has all that you should need is 35 mins away. Beautiful views from the window and I'm sure the balcony is a lovely place to eat when it's the summer.

    The drive from Broadford is about 15 miles, however it feels more like 35 as it is single track and take great care of driving at night. Rain pools at front door so expect to get your feet wet if it rains. Floor in living room and hall creak a lot and therefore it is difficult to be quiet when moving about.
