Glendale, Scottish Highlands & Islands, Scotland
Additional Location Information
The Island of Skye, situated off the West coast Scotland, is the largest and best known of the Inner Hebrides.
Sometimes referred to in Gaelic poetry and song as Eilean a' CheΓ² (The Misty Isle), Skye is renown for its natural beauty, history and wildlife.
The Cuillin Hills, the Red Hills and Blaven have long been favourites with climbers and walkers. If you don't fancy the high places, the deeply indented coastline means you are never far from the sea.
Wildlife abounds on the Island, with birds from the tiny Goldcrest to magnificent Golden Eagle, mammals from Pygmy Shrew to Red Deer and fish from Saithe to Salmon. If you are lucky you might catch sight of the elusive Otter playing on the shore. The wide range of geology and topography provides habitats for many wild flowers.
As you travel around the Island it's not unusual to hear snatches of Scottish Gaelic, the indigenous language of the area. Gaelic culture and heritage pervade the atmosphere, each part of the Island having its own tales of times past and plans for the future.

What Past Guests Are Saying
We stayed here. The house keeper Lindsay was fantastic. The owner's son Mr allan gave us very good driving directions how to get there. The view is amazing, the house is very comfortable with brand new kitchen and a huge dining table. There are several bedrooms to choose from. We went on several walks to take pictures of the scenary. The beds were lovely and each one has its own bathroom so no fighting for the bathroom! Overall it was great and we have booked already so spend Christmas there..
Excellent house, beautiful surroundings
A really beautiful house, well looked after with an open fire (although the house is very warm anyway).
Very enjoyable week. Lovely and comfortable house. Well furnished.
Beautiful house, 5 star accommodation in a fabulous setting
Stayed here with 10 friends and a baby. Ample space for us all. Brilliant cooking facilities, easily ale to cook for a large group. House beautifully furnished and maintained. Love to arrive to an emaculately clean house and freshly baked scones.
Brilliant holiday, the house and fabulous scenery made a wonderful holiday.
Relaxing trip staying in a beautiful cottage!
Cottage was beautiful and in the most serene landscape. Its decor was lovely, very tidy and fully equipped for 10 friends and a baby. Evenings spent in the large kitchen diner and in front of the fire meant a very relaxing time for all. Great location to get to Talisker distillery, Dunvegan castle and Neist Point lighthouse.
We want to buy this house
If this place was more conveniently located for us (so that we could commute to Birmingham), we would buy it. Absolutely beautiful house in perfect condition with great views and great walks.
Great for a big family of a big groups of friends.
