About this listing

Stay in a traditional waterfront Hebridean crofting cottage built in 1857 on the sparkling water’s edge at Broadford Bay on the magical Isle of Skye – birdlife, rockpools and stunning views.

Waterside Cottage

This characterful cottage is as cosy and welcoming for 2 guests as it is for a family of up to 8. Location is everything and Waterside Cottage couldn’t be better placed being close to all the essentials yet central to visit the whole of Skye and Lochalsh. At low tide the bottom of the garden is a door to a world of discovery with amazing wildlife, birdlife, rockpools beaches, and islands to comb, stroll and play on. Breathtaking views to wake up to overlooking the islands of Pabay, Scalpay, the majestic Beinn na Caillach on one side and views of the hills of Applecross on the other.

The property enjoys 1 x downstairs double bedroom with en-suite shower room, 1 x double bedroom,1 x king bedroom, 1 x twin bedroom. Inside you will find a well-equipped kitchen for all your catering and cooking needs (ceramic hob and electric oven, combi microwave and oven, dishwasher, fridge freezer) during your stay, a lounge/dining room with wood burning stove for cosy nights in. There’s a well-stocked games cupboard with games, books and DVD’s as well as Freesat TV and selection of welly boots in different sizes for guests to go beach-combing with. This is a beautiful location and enjoys the benefits of being in easy walking distance of the shops, cafes and restaurants of Broadford village. It also makes a great base to explore the whole of Skye and Lochalsh.

Total relaxation by the water’s edge

A great spot for relaxing in the garden there’s outdoor furniture perfect to enjoy with a good book on sunnier days or a glass of wine before dinner – you might even spot the herons which share the water’s edge location with you. There’s an abundant bird and wildlife population where you can spot migratory birds and local wildlife in their natural habitat undisturbed.

Drive from Scotland’s mainland, over the famous Skye bridge, and just seven miles later you come to Broadford, the location of Waterside Cottage, and also the home of many independent cafes, shops and restaurants. There’s parking for you, right on site. And when you have had enough of relaxing, the restaurants, cafes and shops of Broadford are a short walk away. Bookings are for weekly stays.  Three or four night stays may be available on request.

Five-star fun

There are countless activities to cross off whether you seek adventure and hills, romantic beach strolls, shell collecting, traditional Hebridean dining or an immersion in Celtic culture with lively traditional Scottish folk music in the summer months in some of the local bars. With sea kayaking, walking, angling, sailing, boat trips, otter spotting and whale watching in the Sound there is something for everyone to experience first-hand.

Take a tour at Talisker distillery to sample a dram crafted by master whisky distillers, visit the instagrammable Fairy Pools or learn about the Fairy Flag at Dunvegan.

A stay in this charming crofter’s island cottage is the perfect antidote to city life and the quickest relax. You can be as active or as chilled out as you choose and there’s plenty to occupy both littlies and adults alike at Waterside Cottage on the Isle of Skye.
