Off the beaten track, but just 15 minutes from Portree, Skye's capital. Online booking is possible for weekly stays commencing on a Saturday; if a different start day or shorter stay is wanted, please e-mail or call and we'll try to assist.

11th August 2020:

James and Christina were very helpful both before and during our stay. We had an incredible stay largely because the Boathouse is such a fantastic holiday destination.

Tips:

We had a lovely meal at the Edinbane inn one evening, and would recommend it to future guests. We would also urge future guests to make the most of the location on the water: bring wetsuits, kayaks, paddle boards etc. We did and it made it all the more fun! We would also recommend the Seafari Experience Jurassic Coast boat trip which leaves from Portree harbour. It was great to see the local wildlife and also an amazing way of exploring the coast of Skye.

An outstandingly, private and beautiful location!

Tips:

Just a 10 minute drive to Portree and even less to Uig, but remote enough that if you don't want to see a soul, you won't.

Kingsburgh Boathouse is a wonderful space to stay. Perched on the edge of a loch with spectacular views to the Cuillins in the south-west and north up Loch Snizort and the open sea, it sits in a perfect location. The accommodation is beautifully appointed with big windows to the views and all the amenities that you'd expect of a five star self-catering cottage. It's a perfect place to escape from the world in comfort and enjoy the peace.

This was the holiday house of a lifetime. A beautiful conversion of an old building, comprehensively and tastefully equipped, with uninterrupted views across the loch, to the Cuillin Mountains, and North to the sea and the Outer Hebrides. Only 15m drive to Portree and all mod cons including vast range of restaurants etc. For those who like sunsets, sheep, scenery and sumptuous solitude it wouldn't be possible to do better.

Tips:

SCORRYBREAC CIRCUIT is an excellent 3k circular walk from Portree. It feels twice as long as it is, has varied terrain, and is possibly worth doing in both directions. RELISH is a first rate sandwich shop in Wentworth St, Portree.

The location and cottage were stunning. We had great weather so amazing sunsets and bird watching. The boathouse itself was spotless and had all the amenities we needed for our stay on Skye. Carol was so pleasant to work with and followed up to any of our questions.

Tips:

If you plan to eat out, recommend booking restaurants at least a day in advance, if not more for busier times. Portree can get very busy and restaurants tend to book fast. There is a coop grocer about 10 minutes south of the boathouse which was very convenient for groceries or items we had forgotten. The Three Chimneys restaurant was amazing and if you can book the kitchen table, it is a fabulous experience. There are so many places to see on Skye and viewing the common tourist places is a must especially if it is your first time. There are other stunning places away from the crowds as well. The boathouse has some maps which make planning the days easier, especially when you have to service on the road. Most important, be patient and just enjoy it. May is the drier of the months so we lucked out with weather, but weather can change suddenly so be prepared.

I'm so glad you had a fine experience visiting Skye - and it is worthwhile seeking out the quieter spots. I hope you'll return one day.
