Usually stay in Uig but not any more. Will definately come back to Staffin & the Old Mill. .......Only complaint was that i kept banging my head on the ceiling in the bedroom. Otherwise Excellent!

Beautifully restored cottage in a fantastic location
The cottage is situated next to a small stream on the edge of the village of Staffin. There is a private driveway to it with room for a few cars. The entrance area has a dirty boots tray - very useful, washing machine and the downstairs loo, The well equipped kitchen has everything you could possibly need - the original stone wall is a real feature. The lounge is comfortable with large sofa, armchair plus sky tv and the woodburner. The 2 bedrooms upstairs are of a similar size and both have ensuite small bathrooms - please be aware that the bedrooms and bathrooms have a sloping roof. The shower cubicles are large with ample hot water all day. The bedrooms have a fabulous view out over the fields to the mountains. The cottage is beautifully decorated throughout and always warm. The outside area is accessed via a patio door and has a small bench and picnic table to enjoy al fresco living when the weather is kind. All in all a super place to stay after a long day out sightseeing. The only thing we missed was not having a radio in the kitchen - this was a personal thing though and not meant as a criticism.

Warm and welcoming
We booked the Old Mill for a the Christmas week. It was all we hoped for. Warm cosy and beautifully appointed. Two en-suite bedrooms, a large well equipped kitchen diner and a cosy lounge with WiFi, Sky TV, DVD player and a selection of up to date films, games (no cards but we got some at the village shop) and a couple of jigsaws. The weather during our week was not too good and Skye and the NW of Scotland were lashed by Storm Barbara with high winds and heavy rain. It was so bad that sometimes the TV reception disappeared! The internet due to a lightning strike on the island was very patchy - not the fault of the owner! There is a very well stocked village shop with good fresh local bread as well as everything you would need. Be warned that on Skye in the winter months the majority of cafes and restaurants close so don't go expecting to eat out a lot. Our nearest restaurants were in Portree which meant a 30 mile round trip drive in bad weather. The owner Liz was charming and couldn't do enough for us - she even gave us the Christmas tree she had had in her classroom which really made the cottage seem very Christmassy. Skye is bigger than we realised but we found that the OLD MILL was well located for various attractions such as the Old Man of Storr, The Quirang and Mealt Falls. We cannot recommend this cottage highly enough it was all and more than we had expected. Thank you Liz.

Everything you need and more!
The Old Mill is a lovely cottage which although situated in the heart of Staffin,very near to a grocery shop and a restaurant is actually very private. It is in an ideal place for anyone who wants to explore the beautiful Isle of Skye. Everywhere on the Isle can be reached by road quite easily and many of Skye's premier attractions are very near to Staffin. The cottage itself is clean and comfortable and because of its location offers some spectacular views. The only problem you might have is not wanting to leave at the end of your holiday.

The fireplace at The Old Mill is very nice, especially when you return from a trip in the mountains.
