This detached cottage situated in a township, close to the village of Broadford on the Isle of Skye sleeps six people in three bedrooms.

Solas is a detached stone cottage situated on a hillside in the friendly crofting community of Camuscross, ten miles from the village of Broadford on the Isle of Skye. This cottage sleeps six people in three bedrooms, consisting of two doubles and a ground floor adult bunk room, as well as a ground floor bathroom. The cottage also has a kitchen with dining area and a sitting room with multi-fuel stove.

Outside there is off road and roadside parking for one car, as well as a front lawned garden. Solas is an ideal base for exploring the Isle of Skye, as well as venturing onto the mainland.


What a gem of a place! The views across the sea to the mountains are exquisite, ever changing with the light. The dark skies meant stargazing for us, watching shooting stars. It is a very comfortable house, with everything we could have hoped for, including a table tennis table, which was a hit with the kids. The kitchen is well equipped. The garden provided us with a lovely space to enjoy the beautiful weather we were blessed with for our stay. A few minute's walk down the lane was a hotel, with friendly staff, nice food and award winning gin and whisky produced on the premises. The beer garden on the lochside is a great place to enjoy a local beer in the afternoon. There is a community run shop and cafe just a couple of minute's drive away, with friendly staff and well-stocked shelves. The fresh bread is amazing! I would highly recommend a stay in this great barn conversion situated in an unspoilt corner of Skye.

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful 7 night stay at Solas! The cottage is warm, cosy, well-appointed and the location is perfection ? easily our favourite area on Skye. The only issue I would highlight is that there is no Wi-Fi or phone signal at the property. This can make planning your stay on Skye a bit difficult, however, the Eilean Iarmain pub is only down the road, and the Wi-Fi signal there is excellent (as is the food!). The games table, surround-sound, TV, games, books etc? mean there is plenty to keep yourself entertained at the cottage, so if you are looking for a relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, then this is the place for you! Highly recommended.

The view of the mountains and loch was magnificent! Sleeping worked out very well - all beds were comfy. The location on Skye worked out very well as it was convenient for touring Skye and nearby Torridon area. The large sitting room was great for hanging out in the evening and having a pub 15 minutes walk away was a nice touch.

We were delighted with Solas, it was a beautiful cottage with stunning views out over the Sound of Sleat to Knoydart. It was comfortable, warm, very well equipped, just perfect for us.

Cosy cottage with stunning views
We stayed at Solas for a week to celebrate our wedding anniversary, having been married just along the road in the nearby hotel. The property was superb, and certainly exceeded our expectations. Very well appointed, very well finished and very well located. When we arrived the first thing we did was open up the bi-fold doors in the living room and just sat and soaked in the stunning views over to Knoydart. There's a lovely big stove in the living room, however we only used it twice, and even then it was more for the comfort of a fire rather than needing the heat. Solas is well insulated and is a very toasty property, we had all but one of the radiators turned off during our stay. I think even on the coldest wintery day you'd not need all of the radiators on. The only criticism I could really level at the property would be that the trees in the neighbouring garden obstruct a little bit of the view, however the views are still stunning, and to get the full vista all you have to do is go a few steps down to the bottom of the garden. We'll certainly be back, it was fantastic value for money and was a genuinely lovely place to stay for a week, we were sorry to leave.
