About this listing
Escape to this gorgeous stone-built, mid-19th-century Skye Farmhouse brimming with character and charm with window seats, wood burner and to die for views – nestled within the dramatic landscape of Macleod’s Tables, two flat-topped mountains that dominate the landscape of North West Skye.
With stunning views towards the Cuillin Ridge and Loch Dunvegan on the magical Isle of Skye, a stay at Osdale Farmhouse is a tonic for the soul. Relaxing and tranquil surroundings with lashings of greats walks, adventures, activities and culture just waiting to be discovered.
With equally stylish interiors and luxury bed linens on offer similar to their additional property the Byre, the Farmhouse offers a warm and relaxing base for friends and families to explore all that Skye has to offer. Enjoy sunlit rooms in summer and cosy winter getaways with underfloor hearing downstairs, a perfect place to relax in the star-studded winter months. The Farmhouse sleeps 4 guests with room for up to 3 well behaved pets. Attention to detail at every turn with thoughtfully chosen pieces throughout, make for a very special stay on Skye.
Step into the semi open-plan living area downstairs, with kitchen, dining and sitting room all in one. There’s also a TV, DVD, Bluetooth speaker, CD player and unlimited Wi-Fi for guests use during their stay. The wood burning stove is great to stretch out beside for a relaxing night in after a day of adventures. A great addition to the cottage is a purpose designed utility room with washing machine and handy boot room for coats, muddy boots and muddy paws – the perfect place to rub dogs down and store outdoor stuff. Downstairs you will find a family bathroom and upstairs there are two bedrooms – one twin and one king-size bedroom.
A stay at Osdale Farmhouse affords true isolation, the only neighbour being Osdale Byre at the other end of the same generous grounds. Otherwise, the cottage sits on its own amongst the stunning landscape, making it a remarkable spot to enjoy the Highlands. The Farmhouse is available throughout the year for weekly bookings with arrival and departure on a Friday. Short stays of three or more days may be possible, particularly in low season. The owners of The Farmhouse also own Osdale Byre, so it offers a great option for extended numbers or larger family groups as both cottages can be booked sleeping up to 8 in total if taken together.
5 star location
The cottage is located on the Isle of Skye’s North West peninsula, called Duirinish. The wilderness of the Macleod’s Tables provides a majestic backdrop and offers plenty of great walks straight from your doorstep. Although only 3 miles from Dunvegan with local shops and good places to eat, your location offers real privacy and you still get to enjoy that remote island feel with wide open spaces to explore. Access to Skye’s famous attractions – Neist Point, Coral Beach, and Dunvegan Castle are all nearby as are some of Skye’s best restaurants including The Three Chimneys, Edinbane Lodge and Loch Bay.
The easiest way to reach the Isle of Skye is via Kyle of Lochalsh and the Skye bridge. By car it takes about 2 hours to reach Kyle from Inverness, and 4 1/2 hours from Glasgow and Edinburgh. From Kyle it is another 1 1/4 hours by car to Osdale. The drive cuts across the middle of Skye with stunning scenery to admire along the way, including the Cuillin mountain range.
Osdale Farmhouse offers a truly special escape being perfectly located to take in all that Skye has to offer. If it’s culture, history, landscapes, walking or wildlife you seek you won’t be disappointed. Fresh local seafood, island crafts or breathtaking backdrops such as Dunvegan Castle, Coral Beach and Neist Point await your arrival. Share wide open spaces with deer, sea eagles, seals, dolphins and otters or simply relax with family for a memorable island stay.
Weekly rates range from £875 to around £1600 depending on the time of year. Shorter stays of 3+nights are available, particularly in low season. Availability and prices can be found HERE or contact Anne via the ‘Request Information’ button.
Please note there is a pet housekeeping fee of £10 per pet per week or part week, up to a maximum of 3 pets.
‘We booked both the Farmhouse and Byre for a week on Skye with our family. Anne and Lucy couldn’t have done more in keeping us up to date with everything we needed to know before we went as well as looking after us when we arrived at Osdale.’
‘The guidebook they have put together is a brilliant idea and is good for planning your trip as well as using whilst out and about on Skye. The welcome pack we received was full of lovely goodies including eggs, bread as well as items from local businesses.’
‘The Farmhouse has everything you need to have a fantastic relaxing holiday. Very well equipped, clean and the views are great. Osdale is close enough to Dunvegan but far enough away to feel that you have gotten away from it all. There is so much to do around Osdale and its the perfect place to come home to each night.’
‘If you are looking for a remote getaway in a beautiful picturesque location with hiking this is the perfect quiet cottage.’
‘I absolutely loved my week at Osdale Farmhouse, there were so many thoughtful touches and the cottage is incredibly comfortable, a real home from home. The location is perfect, isolated but only a short drive to Dunvegan and a great base for exploring further afield.’
It was such a pleasure to find a truly dog friendly cottage that wasn’t “doggy” and the underfloor heating was a real hit.
‘I’m trying hard to think of the best features of Osdale Farmhouse, but if I’m honest, it’s everything. I’m definitely booking again for next year.’
