Region: From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain's best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.
Town: Situated on the Trotternish Peninsula in the north of Skye is the scattered village of Conista - formed from a few, traditionally whitewashed cottages. Ten miles from the village of Uig, and six from Staffin, Conista is well served by local amenities. It also boasts close proximity to Duntulm, named after a steep rocky headland where the ruins of Duntulm Castle can be seen. The entire island offers excellent walking routes, as does the nearby mainland - accessible by both road bridge and ferry - whilst the breathtaking scenery makes a wonderful backdrop for cycling trips, fishing and birdwatching, especially as many seabirds use the steep cliffs during the early summer, including the rare Fulmar.
Additional amenities include: high chair, cooker.Read more

Booking this holiday cottage was completed smoothly.
The Cottage was all i saw in the on line images and more!
The location is quiet with beautiful views especially from the dorma bedroom.Local people were welcoming and the shops and amenities
I have too recommend the Little Teapot cafe in the local village the selection of Tea's from around the world and Home made cakes make this a must to enhance the whole relaxing experience of my stay on Skye.I will most certainly be returning to this cottage and area of stunning natural beauty!!

Recommended location to get away from it all. Extremely calm with great views. Access to Uig and Portree shops within 30mins. Well-presented cottage with all self-catering necessities for a family of four. Kids loved the wildlife,countryside,including basking sharks,otters,seals, dolphins all easily spotted within a week in summer. Hebrides clearly visible from upper bedroom.
Perfect cottage in perfect location!

It was an extremely well equipped cottage with high specifications. We especially enjoyed the wood burning stove and the beautiful upstairs bedroom. Local people were very helpful and nice. The cottage was a lovely place to come home to after a day's adventures in Skye.

We met some friends from Liverpool area here in the north of Skye. We didn't expect such a great location. And the "real"house is much better than the pictures on the homepage does show! But you should like remote areas! The next supermarket is far away - but what you get instead is a place of peace and tranquility. And overall the house is a good base for some beautiful hikes & places like the Old Man of Storr, the Quairing, coast & waterfalls!
One negative thing: The combined living/dining-room was a bit too small for 4 adults & 1 child.
Rating: We would definately come back!!

Superb location. Very high spec and very inviting with its log burner giving a cosy feel during the cold evenings.
Used this as a base for walking each day. Superb coastal walks nearby and close to the high peaks too. Great place, highly recomend it and had three lovely bedrooms.
Wonderfully relaxing and a wonderful location.

A great location to simply relax time. The surroundings are breathtaking. The house is very modern and has everything you need. The service was excellent. A German television was not available. The fireplace is very noisy in high winds.

We had a wonderful time at the cottage in Conista. The cottage was spacious modern with a cosy feel. The woodburning stove was a lovely bonus. We will be coming back very soon.
Peace, quiet and luxury rolled into one.

The service we received was fantastic.
The cottage had everything you would want and more, three beautiful bedrooms, a modern bathroom and kitchen living room. The whole cottage was everything we wanted. After a day walking we would go back light the fire and enjoy an evening in or go out to a local hotel to eat.
The location is fantastic if you want a quiet relaxed holiday in a beautiful location with dramatic landscapes. You do have to be prepared with your supplies but the cottage is well worth the effort.
This cottage has been put together with thought and attention to detail and is well worth a visit.
