Skye Cabins Deluxe Rotunda & Luxury Mini Lodges

Stargaze through the dome ceiling window from the comfort of your bed and relax in your own private wood fired hot tub while sipping a glass of bubbly - the perfect escape on the Isle of Skye, overlooking the sparkling shores of Loch Snizort.


Finnish in design and made to withstand the Highland climate, your compact and deliciously comfortable rotunda makes for the quickest holiday relax. Fully equipped with a bespoke kitchen, en-suite bathroom and exclusive furnishings throughout. There's a luxurious king-size bed where you can even stargaze through the dome ceiling window above, as you drift gently off to sleep. There's a fabulous natural playground on your doorstep to explore if you can tear yourself away from the wood fired hot tub with a canopy covered balcony out the front. Watch the sunset over the sparking waters or if you're lucky you may even catch a glimpse of the aurora (Northern Lights) making a spectacular show in the winter. There is a seating area outside to enjoy breakfast in the morning or a glass of wine before dinner. The owners also have two other properties, both Finnish Lodges featured separately on Best Scottish Cottages as well as a mini apartment each sleeping 2. All four properties can be booked together for parties of up to 8 in total, upon request.


The Isle of Skye has plenty to offer, whether you seek relaxation and together time or want to immerse yourself in the vibrant landscape, beautiful Gaelic culture and history of the island. There is direct access to Loch Snizort 200 metres from the cabins. You can enjoy all things water related from sailing on the loch to wild Atlantic salmon fishing on River Snizort. Various wildlife can be seen close by with sea eagles, heron and buzzards commonly circling the skies. Red deer, Scottish blackface sheep and Highland cattle are also common in the village. Eilean Chaluim Chille or Saint Columba's Isle is found in Snizort river and can be reached by a wooden bridge. This was the Nicholson Clan graveyard for nine centuries and the ancient headstones can still be seen. The ruined chapel was also once the most important religious site in the islands from 1079 until 1498.


Skye Cabins are based seven miles from the main town of Portree on the beautiful Isle of Skye. Situated on a small working croft on the banks of Loch Snizort, there are three luxury cabins which looks east onto the back of the Old Man of Storr and looks south onto the Cuillin Mountain range. Skye Cabins offer a relaxing, peaceful and tranquil stay in a stunning central location, where the natural playground of Skye and all its attractions are within easy reach.

The Isle of Skye

The Isle of Skye is known throughout the world, rich in history with dinosaur fossils, clan warfare, highland clearances, Jacobite rebellion and made famous by the escape of Bonnie Prince Charlie with Flora Macdonald after his defeat at Culloden in 1745. Home of the MacCrimmons, the ancient masters of the bagpipes, the island is home to Clan MacDonald and Clan MacLeod both having their Clan Castles on the island. A great destination for wildlife watching with the white tailed sea eagle at the top of bird watchers lists. Otters, seals, whales, dolphins and red deer are just some of the other impressive creatures that can be seen on and around the Isle of Skye. With world class walking and climbing, visitors seek out the Cuillin Range and ‘The Trotternish Ridge' both offering challenging climbs and interesting scrambles. The Cuillins offers 12 Munros - peaks above 3000ft (914m) and there are many low level and interesting walks to enjoy as well. With lots of interesting places to visit you'll have plenty to see and do including the highly instagrammable fairy pools, a day trip to St. Kilda or a glimpse into the life of The Giant MacAskill at his tiny but dedicated museum.
