The Isle of Skye, famed for its beauty, setting, history, romance, was recently voted the 4th best island in the world by National Geographic. Hilly peninsulas and points, boasting wonderful names like Trotternish, Waternish, Duirinish and Sleat, radiate out haphazardly from the central massif of the Cuillin Hills, producing a succession of long, narrow sea lochs and bays, many with small villages and scattered crofting townships.
Set in the ‘Garden of Skye’ amongst some of the worlds most beautiful scenery, the charming Skye White House has panoramic views of Knock Bay, Knock Castle and the majestic Sound of Sleat. Beyond lie the peaks of the Knoydart mountains and the snow-capped peaks of the highlands. Within easy reach are golden sandy beaches, beautiful and sometimes challenging walking and climbing, as well as wonderful places for lunch with local pubs, art galleries and the Clan Donald Visitors Centre all nearby.

“Lucky enough to hit the jackpot with the weather and with cosey evenings in the cottage, it’s been a great week on Skye”
The SKYE WHITE HOUSE is located in Sleat, the garden of Skye, on the south-east peninsula of the Isle of Skye, Scotland. Famous for its mild temperate climate this is the greenest part of Skye. Skye is connected to the mainland via the Skye Bridge although it is still possible to reach the island by ferry. The house is less than 20 minute drive from the Skye Bridge along excellent scenic roads. It is only a few minutes drive from Armadale Pier where one can catch a ferry to Mallaig on the Scottish mainland.

It is a 2 hour drive from Inverness (the closest airport) There is also an aerodrome in nearby Broadford on Skye itself. The route takes you along some of the most stunning scenery and some of the best roads in the UK. Car hire is reasonably inexpensive at Inverness airport with services offered by all major operators. It is about 4 hours from Glasgow and about 5 hours from Edinburgh. It takes about 12 hours to drive from London.
