Are you looking for a luxurious cosy traditional cottage on the Isle of Skye?
Aisling Cottage makes a perfect, indulgent retreat for two people, for a romantic honeymoon or an anniversary treat.
A former crofter’s cottage, Aisling has been sensitively modernised with great attention to detail to provide you with every home comfort and luxury. The works of local artists are displayed on the walls, adding extra dimensions to your stay. Thoughtful personal touches around the cottage enhance the feeling of a home from home. And with a choice of double or twin beds, two friends can have a room each. We regret the cottage is not suitable for children.
The well-appointed kitchen has a dishwasher, fridge-freezer, washing machine and MP3 player, plus all the equipment you need to create gourmet meals from quality local produce. You can enjoy the view across to Beinn na Cailleach, the iconic mountain above the village, as you cook.
Next to the kitchen is the dining room, which looks out over the garden. The comfortable sitting room has a selection of books and wide-screen TV with digital freeview. A corner window enjoys stunning views over Broadford Bay and several islands to the mainland beyond.
Aisling is centrally heated throughout, keeping you snug and warm whatever the time of year.
The small conservatory is perfect for breakfast in the morning sunshine, while a pretty summerhouse clad in clematis and honeysuckle is an unusual den to relax in with a dram to enjoy our spectacular sunsets.
In the large sheltered garden we provide a barbeque and a picnic table.
Surrounded by green fields and very private, Aisling nestles in a peaceful crofting township on the outskirts of the village. It’s an easy walk to the amenities of Broadford, Skye’s second largest village. Here you will find a choice of restaurants serving fresh local seafood and other delicacies, a supermarket, craft shops, artists’ gallery, petrol, bank and more. The nearest pub is just a short stroll down a leafy lane bordered by a stream.
A sandy beach with fossils and otters is close by. Boat trips to take you whale and sea eagle spotting are a short drive away. Aisling Cottage is ideally placed for walkers and climbers, with many rewarding local walks and easy access to Skye’s spectacular Cuillins. On our bookshelves we provide extensive local information on the island and its wonders. South Skye is not far from the mainland, making it simple to get to and well-placed for exploring the near mainland as well as the island itself, with the famous Eilean Donan Castle and Plockton village less than half an hour away.
