The Old Mill is a detached cottage set next to a river, in the village of Staffin on the Isle of Skye. This cottage sleeps four people in two en-suite bedrooms, consisting of one king-size double and one twin. The cottage also has a kitchen with dining area and a sitting room with a cosy woodburning stove.

Outside, there is ample off road parking, a front seating area, and a rear gravelled garden with a picnic table. The Old Mill is a great base for exploring all that the Isle of Skye has to offer.


What an amazing place, everything you could possibly need in a holiday cottage with the added bonus of the scenary. We had the most amazing week. Absolutely everything covered and Covid safe, hand sanitiser, cleaning sanitiser, everything, regular contact from owner and really good advice on the long journey up from our home during these strange times . Thank you for letting us stay in your property. We will be back!

Cosy base for exploring Skye
Stayed at the Old Mill between 3rd-10th November and loved every minute spent there! Such a cosy, warm and well equipped base to relax in after a day of exploring the wonders that the island has to offer. Despite strong winds, the cottage stayed warm and well insulated against the sound of it battering the trees. The Quiraing is only 10 minutes drive away as is Staffin Beach, from where I?d recommend a spot of stargazing and you could even be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the northern lights like we did! Thoroughly enjoyed staying at The Old Mill and will definitely return.

Wonderful Cottage with a Location.......
Stayed here for a Week. Cottage had Everything you could ask for.Wonderful Location. Even got to see the Dinosaur Footprint. Lovely pastry left for us by the owners. 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.

Excellent! Perfect cottage!
This was my second time staying at the Old Mill in Staffin and I would love to come back! The cottage ticked every box for me and I really enjoyed staying there. Upon arrival, the owners had baked some gorgeous biscuits which were very nice. Initially, the cottage had no working internet, therefore I informed the owner who went out of her way to rectify the problem in less than 24 hours by obtaining a new router. The cottage itself is spacious, modern, comfortable and warm. It has stunning views of a river and mountains, from the second that you wake up in your bedroom and look out of the window. The location of the cottage is perfect, the Isle of Skye is one of the most beautiful places that I have ever visited in the whole of Europe. The cottage has amazing views nearby of the sea and there are many fantastic places to visit on the Island. Overall this cottage is brilliant, the location brilliant, the owners are very helpful and respect and I can not wait to book to come back!
