Sleeping up to seven people in three bedrooms, this cottage is on a working croft 5 miles from Uig on the Isle of Skye.

Trotternish Cottage is a cottage on a working croft 5 miles from Uig on the Isle of Skye. The cottage has a ground floor room with adult bunks, a double room and a king-size double with additional single sofabed. There are two shower rooms, one on the ground floor. There is also a kitchen with dining area, and a sitting area with woodburning stove. Outside is off road parking, and a lawned garden to the front and rear, with some lovely views over the glen and river. Trotternish Cottage makes a wonderful base for families or friends to explore the beautiful scenery, or take in the abundant nature of Skye.


The cottage is in a very peaceful setting, situated a short drive from many stunning coastal and mountain walks. Perfect if you want to get away from it all. The cottage is a lovely base and quite central for visits to the rest of the island. The owners were very friendly and helpful, and it was lovely to stay on a working farm. We were fortunate to have week of glorious sunshine. Couldn't have been better.

We have been to Skye twice a year for the past ten years and I can honestly say that this cottage is probably the best presented one in which we have stayed. Well worth the eleven hour drive with our two wee dogs. Gordon and Margaret should be rightly proud of this little gem. Clean, comfortable, warm and welcoming. The location is ideal for travelling round the north of the Island with Portree only a fifteen minute drive away and Uig only ten minutes away. It was nice to know that Gordon and Margaret were only next door if anything was needed but everything worked well. I was going to pass the details of this wonderful cottage on to my friends but decided against it, just in case they wanted to book the same time as me! We will definitely be back. Thanks.

We loved this cottage. Well worth the 8 hour drive. Lovely owners who helped when asked and couldn't do enough for us. The Isle of Syke is a beautiful place with so many stunning places to visit. Gordon let us use some of the land to comfortably walk our dog off lead away from cattle. We appreciated that. A little word of warning the National Lottery funded walk across the river is great BUT please watch out for the 3 cows through the second gate! In summary we had a relaxing week but Gordon please sort out those noisy pipes from the log burner!

I have already recommended this property, and destination to friends at work. We had a really lovely holiday, and would stay there again.
Mrs Smyth

The owners made us feel extremely welcome. They had gone out of their way to ensure that we had everything we needed. The location of the Cottage was idyllic.
