Beautifully located cottage with nothing between it and Staffin bay below. If you want to avoid the hustle and bustle of Portree and experience the peace of this less frequented part of Skye you’ll love Driftwood cottage. It’s exactly as per the pictures on their website. If you have the good weather we did you’ll love the outdoor seating and trestle table for meals/relaxing with a bottle and looking direct out to sea and across to the mainland.

Tips:

The cottage is situated about 30 minutes North of Portree and we’ll located for the Quiraing, old Man of Storr and Kilt Rock. There are a couple of general stores in staffin but Portree is the best bet for food shopping. The large Co-op located just on the outskirts of Portree on the Dunvegan Road is a better bet than the smaller one that you’ll find in town. No problems with parking either! Bear in mind the cottage only offers a small supply of coffee, tea and sugar (no milk, bread, cooking oil etc) so bear that in mind when planning what to bring/buy en route. Owners are readily available if needed else you have total privacy. Do try the Lochbay restaurant in Stein. Open for lunch and dinner with reasonable prices for a fine dining place. Booking is essential as it only has 18 covers or so and was full when we ate their for a mid week lunch with walk-ins being turned away. You can finder cheaper places to stay without a doubt but the the space, peace, privacy and fantastic views make the added expense worthwhile.

The cottage was modern, bright, and clean. Truly enjoyed the space. We appreciated the information book that was left for us. It was very helpful. The directions sent beforehand were very clear.

Tips:

Skye Pie Cafe was only ten minutes away, and was a great place for a bite to eat. They also have a small supply of local yarn for sale.

Driftwood cottage is in an idyllic location. With views out to the ocean and surrounded by countryside. Everything you need during your stay is catered for at the cottage. Easy to book and great directions/instructions from the owners. I have no hesitation in recommending Driftwood Cottage.

Tips:

The fossil museum and Kilt Rock are close by and definitely worth visiting. You must visit Staffin beach, near Staffin slipway, just a few minutes drive away. Best to go when the tide is out in the hope of being able to see the dinosaur footprints. There is a local shop and tea room in Staffin and Portree has lots of places to eat and shops to browse.

Driftwood Cottage could not have been more perfect! It is well positioned to explore Skye and major sites (30min from Portree, and 1hr from Carbost area). The cottage itself is immaculate and beautifully designed, with incredible views of the ocean to one side and the mountains to the other. It was so perfect that we didn’t want to leave!

Tips:

The cottage is well situated to the rest of Skye. We highly recommend driving north of the cottage along the Trotternish Pennisula for absolutely unreal views. The Staffin village store has quite a selection of goods or the CoOp in Portree is open until 10pm. Drive to Uig Harbor across the Quiraing (during daylight hours!) for views out of this world and a delicious dinner at the Ferry Inn in Uig.

Driftwood Cottage was perfect for our stay on Skye. Spotlessly clean and very comfortable with great views. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely return and recommend to others.

Tips:

Jenn's Cakes in Dunvegan was a brilliant chance discovery...we'll most definitely go back. Amazing cakes and chocolates! We enjoyed hiking in the Quirang which was virtually on the doorstep of Driftwood Cottage. Check the tides if you want to see the dinosaur footprints on Staffin beach. We'll have to plan to see them next time...

Fabulous stay; extremely comfortable, well appointed, feel good home. Gorgeous views from every aspect. Great location. Loved how light the house felt, even when dismal weather outside! Beautifully dark at night with the black out blinds in bedrooms. Lovely and cosy, the Rayburn is wonderfully efficient! Would love to return and certainly recommend to others.

Tips:

Two village shops; only used the Mace during our short stay; this is well stocked and staff were friendly. Cottage in a great spot for visiting tourist spots in the north, great walking country.

The driftwood cottage is just a little piece of heaven. Everything is so perfectly set from the location of the house to room furniture. View of sea from the bedroom is so amazing. My stay was so nice that I was little sad while leaving. I would certainly come back to this cottage frequently! And we all loved Sally's flapjacks ;) Thanks for that sugary treat!
