Step away into a place of retreat and sanctuary, where you can do as much or as little as you need to feel recovered, revived and reconnected. Expertly designed by award winning local architects R House, Skye Lair is a five star, self catering home for four with a minimal yet cosy ambience. Clad in local larch wood and elegantly appointed, Skye Lair includes everything you need to cocoon yourself in Scottish Scandi luxury. Set amidst stunning scenery on the Sleat Peninsula (known as the ‘Garden of Skye’), panoramic windows make the most of mesmerising, ever changing mountain and ocean views, compelling in any season. Explore the ancient history, physical wonders and culinary delights of this legendary island from Skye Lair’s ideal location or curl up in front of the wood burning stove and watch the flames dance - the perfect definition of ‘hygge’ (or as we say in Scotland, ‘coorie in’).

This was fantastic accommodation; clean, well equipped and had the most beautiful views. Melanie was very helpful. I would definitely recommend Skye Lair.

Tips:

Sleat point was a fantastic beach with an hours walk to get to it- definitely worth the walk. An Crubh was a great cafe for breakfast and lunch.

Skye Lair is a stunning R-House settled into the hills of Skye with the most spectacular views from every window. Comfortable, warm and stocked with all the essentials, it was a fantastic place to return to each day after exploring the island. Owner was fantastic to deal with—great communication and very welcoming! Highly Recommended!

Tips:

For breakfast and lunch, I highly recommend Deli Gasta in nearby Broadford. Fairy Pools and Brother's Point are must-sees. Bring the hiking boots for both though!

From booking Skye Lair to departure ,was friendly and professional . We had everything we needed for a wonderful stay, and so comfortable, including a cosy wood burner . Melanie could not have been more helpful, and thank you for our little treat that awaited us. Would love to return again sooner than later.

Tips:

The scenery was stunning, with lots of walks to enjoy. We crossed on the Ferry to Mallaig for the day, the crossing was wonderful. The Eileen Larmain hotel had good food and great sea food.

What a wonderful house to stay in if visiting Isle of Skye .The house is immaculate and has everything you need so comfortable and warm. The weather was not kind to us in Skye bit it was November ! This house was an absolute pleasure to return to after our day out and sitting in front of the lovely wood burner. The view is spectacular from the house. I will definitely return . Melanie was so helpful and always there to answer any questions Thank You Skye Lair for a lovely trip

Tips:

You must take a trip to Elgol stunning views. We had breakfast in An Crubh lovely. We also visited Deli Gasta food is amazing this is a must to visit beautiful sandwiches. Some hotels around the property but we ate dinner in the house most evenings .

Amazing Lodge. Very warm and comfortable with glorious views. Our wee grandson loved playing in the garden and riding his bike over the grass. We wish we were still there.

Tips:

It is in a beautiful area of Skye. We took a trip to Elgol which was well worth the views of the Cuillin. We took another trip to Quiraing in Trotternish and had a walk up there. We didn't have time to go to the Fairy pools or the Coral beach but next time we will. There is so much to see on Skye even if you are not a hillwalker. We didn't eat out but we were very impressed with the local Coop in Broadford for supplies.

We absolutely loved our stay at the Lair and were sorry to leave. The house itself was beautiful, very well equipped and spotlessly clean. Melanie was a pleasure to deal with.

Tips:

Melanie's recommended bakeries and coffee shops were excellent. Be sure to phone ahead to other restaurants as we found that booking was essential and opening hours varied from what was advertised on their various websites.

Beautiful and comfortable. After a day of walking it was treat to have everything we needed to cook dinner, set a fire, and cuddle up for a movie. We particularly loved the area, it didn’t feel quite as busy as other areas of Skye we’ve visited.

Tips:

We loved Red Sky! And the day trip to Mallaig was the best!! Saw dolphins from the ferry and rode bikes to Loch Morar and saw the sand beaches! Delicious fish and chips at the end, a bonus. We also visited the otter hide from the guide book, but it’s not open yet. (you can still see down the hill to the beach though)

Fabulous house, amazing views and everything you need for a comfortable stay. Would highly recommend for a peaceful break, it was wonderful to get a change of scenery as nice as this!!

Tips:

We tended to eat out during the day and cook in the evening but plenty of places to visit within a 15 minute radius (driving) for a nice meal. Fairy pools and glenbrittle beach were a highlight in the sun. If it’s a nice day getting to coral beach past Dunvegan is a challenge as it can be very busy so best to go first thing.

A beautiful modern house with stunning views, in the south of Skye, a long way to drive to many of the main attractions. We met our daughter and son-in-law and 2 year old granddaughter there for a long weekend. It was ideal, warm, very comfortable beds, well equipped, super clean and has space and light. An excellent cot was provided. Cannot fault it and would definitely recommend as a retreat or for a short stay.

Tips:

We visited Armadale Castle and gardens only a few miles away and had a most pleasant time, walks, garden, interesting museum and excellent cafe for lunch. It is also the ferry port; catching the ferry to or from Mallaig can split up a long car journey. Our 2 year old granddaughterloved it! We toured most of the island; most notable were Talisker distillery, Staffin museum (dinosaur footprints) and Skyeskyns who produce the softest of soft sheepskin rugs. The Torevaigh Hotel very near Skye Lair provided a very expensive but delicious meal, note that the cheapest bottle of wine is £35!
