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.

GUEST REVIEWS

  • “Lovely stay on Skye and the perfect spot to make the most of it here in the White House.

    Really lucky with the weather so days by the fire playing scrabble and drinking wine were kept to a minimum. We did move the TV and DVD player to the living room so nights on the sofa watching a film were also a perfect way to end a day’s exploration.

    We recommend the Point of Sleat walk – great on day 1 and a good way to get started.

    Let us know if you ever come to sell up – we had a fantastic week – who’da thought we were in the same country. Off to catch the ferry now! Thank you”

    Rich and Sarah | Oxford | UK | November 2014
  • “Our stay has been short and sweet – we’ve felt very at home here. Ventured out each day but spent some time enjoying the stunning views from the cottage, and making good use of the kitchen.

    The bed and bedding so so comfortable and a glorious view to wake up to. Many thanks”

    Mark and Jacky | Fife | North Yorkshire | November 2014
  • “Thanks so much for a wonderful stay – you even managed beautiful weather – in the morning through the windows the light was like laser beams and then me oh my the view!!!

    Skye as ever is gorgeous, and in October with the brown hues mixed with all the other gorgeous subtle colours it was a joy to travel around

    There was enough to do if you wanted busy with some lovely restaurants – the Three Chimneys was everything it promised but our final evening we went to Lochbay restaurant that was marvellous (but check if open in the winter!)

    If you want to just relax and mooch about the cottage then this cottage was perfect, sofa, wine, a little whiskey, log fire and an iPad (Thanks for the internet – saviour for our 16 year old son!!)

    Perfect really just Perfect”

    The Stanford Family | Edinburgh | October 2014
  • “We really enjoyed staying in your little cottage! Fabulous views, peaceful surroundings, great drives and walks nearby.

    We can heartily recommend passing the evenings in the living room watching a box-set, beer in hand, as the wood fire roars.

    Skye in the Autumn was magical as ever, great colours and wild weather. M&K’s top tip for Skye

    - ring ahead to check that tea room 40 miles away is open!

    Hope to be back in 2015!”

    Mark and Kate | Dublin | October 2014
  • “We have had a great time on Skye. The weather has been wonderful

    We have enjoyed our stay in the White House and will look forward to returning to Skye in the near future

    We enjoyed the beaches at Point of Sleat and Claigan Coral beach and had two good boat trips to Loch Coruisk (which we walked around) and a trip to Canna where en route we spotted dolphins, minke whales and lots of porpoises. The Old Man of Storr is a lovely walk with lovely views but is a very popular walk!

    Thank You”

    Bob, Joyce and Callum (aged 8 weeks) | Linlithgow | September 2014
  • “A wonderful week in Skye White House!

    We have had amazing weather and enjoyed walking, and seeing the wonderful scenery on this island

    The White House has been an amazing retreat for us at the end of each day – so peaceful, a haven for rest!

    We have loved the wood burning stoves and candles too. Thank you!”

    Wendy and Greg | Highworth | September 2014
  • “Many thanks to the White House. We have had the best holidays on the Isle of Skye!

    Our cosy cottage to come back to after a day exploring the many jewels of this beautiful corner of the world! The weather was fantastic, sunny most of our stay! Our highlight of the week:

    Aquaexplore boat trip (minke whale and seals), the Point of Sleat walking trail, the many more walks around the isle, our culinary experience at the 3 Chimneys restaurant, most of all the comfort of the cottage!

    We have to say bye bye for now but hope to come back soon for another relaxing enchanting week!

    Thank You”

    Sarah and Ian | August 2014
  • “Had a great week – lovely cottage, superb views.

    Great acoustics for fiddle and cello playing”

    Karen and Brian | Milngavie | August 2014
  • “Spent a wonderfully hot and sunny week at the cottage & enjoyed it tremendously! What could be better than wine by the fire with views overlooking the bay!!

    Would highly recommend a trip to the pub – the nearby Eilean Iarmain (the one Gerard Depardieu went to), as well as the Old Man of Storr, Point of Sleat & Quirang walks”

    Maya and Michael | July 2014
  • “This has been a wonderful first trip to Skye for us.
    It’s a truly stunning island in all weathers and, typically Scottish, we’ve had stunning hot sunny days and rain and of course mist. None of which made any difference to our enjoyment of Skye.

    Charming cottage in an idyllic spot with a view to take your breath away.

    Won’t hesitate to recommend it”

    Marion and Marrie | Edinburgh | July 2014
  • “Lovely house,

    Beautiful views”

    Ian and Janet | Stourbridge | July 2014
  • “Wonderful week in this beautiful cottage, so cosy and friendly, fortunate to have a gorgeous day on Tues and able to picnic and enjoy the lawn outside with the fabulous views.

    Enjoyed food at the Eilean Iarmain, Ardvaser Hotel, Cafe Sia, Harbour Inn, Bakur Bar Uig, and a wee cafe next door to the Misty Isles Hotel, Dunvegan. Dunvegan Castle worth a visit, Black houses museum at Kilmuir is excellent. We were fortunate enough to meet Torsten and have a chat about his new project along the road and have a sneak peak.

    Also a lovely reminisce for my husband who actually stayed in the cottage in around 1965 on a family holiday. It has changed a lot since then but not lost it’s tradition and charm. It was special for us to bring our daughters here to holiday in it. We will be back! Thank you Torsten”

    Tracy, Gavin, Ruby & Nancy | Kinross | July 2014
  • “SKYE AS BEAUTIFUL AS EVER AND WE’VE LOVED THE SITUATION OF THE COTTAGE WITH BEAUTIFUL VIEWS. IN PARTICULAR WE’VE ENJOYED:

    - WAKING UP IN THE LIGHT AIRY BEDROOMS AFTER A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP ON EXCELLENT BEDS

    - BREAKFAST ON THE BENCH OUTSIDE

    - VISITS TO THE CLAN DONALD CENTRE AND GARDENS, TARSKAVAIG FOR VIEWS OF THE CUILLINS, FOOD AT THE HARBOUR INN (PORTREE) AND EILEAN IARMAIN HOTEL OR AM PRABAN BAR, ISLE OF SKYE BAKING COMPANY (PORTREE & BROADFORD) MAKES EXCELLENT BREAD. NEWSPAPERS CAN BE BOUGHT AT SABHAL MOR OSTAIG (THE GAELIC COLLEGE) – JUST UP THE ROAD.

    THAK YOU T + A”

    Caroline and Margaret | Glasgow and Cambridge | June 2014
  • “OUR 2ND VISIT TO THE COTTAGE AND I’M SURE IT WON’T BE OUR LAST.

    EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT, EVEN THE WEATHER!!! THIS YEAR WE TOOK THE 4 HOUR TRIP ON THE AQUAXPLORE FROM ELGOL, HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK. THE TRIP WAS FAB AND SAW A BABY MINK WHALE AMONGST MANY OTHER THINGS!

    SKYE HAS A GREAT LARDER. WE HAVE FEASTED ON PRAWNS, HIGHLAND BEEF, HOMEMADE BREAD AND CAKES.

    BEST OF ALL WAS COMING “HOME” EACH NIGHT TO THIS FAB COTTAGE.

    THANK YOU”

    Ruth and John | Linlithgow | June 2014
  • “FABULOUS VIEW. COSY IN COTTAGE WHEN WEATHER TURNED AGAINST US.

    LOVED LOCH CORIUSK, ORD AND POINT OF SLEAT. BLUE SHED CAFE AT TORRIN CUTE. TRY TO GO TO THE EILEAN IARAMIN WHEN MUSIC IS ON. SKYE WILL CALL US BACK”

    LIZ AND GREG | MELBOURNE | JUNE 2014
  • “THANK YOU FOR A LOVELY RELAXING HOLIDAY. THE SKYE WHITE HOUSE IS SO COSY, COMFORTABLE AND IN A WONDERFUL SETTING.

    THE ISLAND IS BEAUTIFUL AND WE HAVE THOROUGHLY ENJOYED VISITING ALL THE DIFFERENT AREAS. SO SAD TO LEAVE – HOPE TO BE BACK SOON. WE WOULD HEARTILY RECOMMEND PLOCKTON SHORES RESTAURANT. FOOD AND SERVICE HERE ARE SUPERB”

    Anita and Bill | Isle of Man | May 2014
  • “Lucky enough to hit the jackpot with the weather and with cosey evenings in the cottage, it’s been a great week on Skye”

    Clare | March 2014
  • “Thank you for a lovely lazy escape. Great cottage, well equipped and super cosy with the wood burners.

    Walks around the Quiraing, Old Man of Stor and the Fairy Glen are highly recommended… but next time we’ll try to avoid blizzards and avalanches!”

    Issmael and Fiona | February 2014
  • “Our 2nd visit to Skye White House was just as perfect, if not better than the first.

    The cottage with it’s stunning views and idyllic location provided us with an ideal base for some much needed R&R.  Homely and well equipped it has everything we need and more.

    We enjoyed walks on the beach in the wind and rain collecting shells and bits of drift wood, food from Skye Farm Shop and some welcome help from the cracking garage next door, and sitting by the fire in the wonderful bar at the Eilean Iarmain eating gorgeous local estate venison and haggis on New Years Eve.

    We’ll be back again in 2014″

    Sarah and Chris Gates | December 2013
  • “Had a wonderful week in November in the Skye White House. Such a stunning location in the Autumn and the snow on the mountains on the mainland made the view even better.

    The Point of Sleat is a great walk and a beautiful location well worth it. We can’t wait to return to Skye”

    Stephen and Angela | Solihull | November 2013
  • “A wonderful week spent in Skye – the weather has been stunning and the Autumn colours inspiring!

    Such a beautiful location for a cottage – we are going to struggle to persuade our 5 year old to leave tomorrow….

    p.s. for any scallop lovers do try sconsel scallops – phone up and get them fresh – follow the utube clip on shucking!! Fab!!

    Thanks”

    Kirsty, Mark, Megan and Struan | Scottish Borders | October 2013

    Mr & Mrs Milner | September 2013

  • “We loved staying in your cottage.

    Skye is beautiful. The boat trip was so much fun. We would like to come back some time”

    Bianca, Stef, Nick and Thys | Spanbroek | The Netherlands | July 2013
  • “We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your picturesque, classic white Skye cottage. We hiked and explored the island and at the end of the day returned “home”.

    Others have already extolled the virtues of many of Skye’s sites and activities. We’d like to add to the recommendations a visit to Tokavaig/Ord shoreline to watch the sun set, Breathtaking! We head home having created wonderful memories (and great photos) of our time on Skye”

    Daria, Scott and Alexis | Portland | Oregon | USA | and Veronica | Juarros de Riomoros | Spain | July 2013
  • “Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful cottage. The island is breathtaking, although wet. We Loved: – the beach down to the Point of Sleat, the walk to the Old Man of Storr, good food at Stables restaurant. Sadly had to leave early. Would have loved to have seen more”

    Linda and Stephen | July 2013
  • “A great week in a great house in a great location – breathtaking views that change by the hour!

    Recommended: Dinner at Creelers in Broadford, the walk down to the sandy beach near the Point of Sleat – just stunning and worth the effort! AquaXplore trip out to Canna & Rum, exhilirating and the best money we’ve spent on holiday in a long time. Seal watching from the hide at Kylerhea. Spinning for mackerel at Armadale Pier.

    All in all, just lovely – many thanks! Will definitely be back!

    (and hats off to and a massive thank you to the garage at Armadale – McGillivray Motors – for helping us out in a crisis)”

    Rachel, Adie, Evie and Ruby | Derbyshire | June 2013
  • “We loved to stay in your house and on the Isle of Skye! We especially enjoyed the walk up and the view from Old Man Storr, the silence of Tokavaig beach, the tasty bread from the Baking Company (Portree), the drink in the evening sun at Stein Inn, the walk along and the quick (!) dip in the Fairy Pool near Glenbrittle, the live music at the Old Inn in Carbost, the beautiful texture  of Coral beach, the cold beer at Am Prabam Bar (Eilean Iarmain) and the morning sun and coffee on the bench in front of the Skye White House.

    Thank you for this cozy part-time-home!”

    Per Ole and Hannah | Hamburg | Germany | June 2013
  • “Thanks for providing a great place with spectacular views. The weather was kind, with warm days and nights making our stay very enjoyable. Hope one day to return from down under to enjoy the vista”

    Kate, Maria and Paul | June 2013

    The cottage was lovely and we were very comfortable there for the week. Wished we could have taken the view home with us!”

    Sarah | May 2013
  • “Just wanted to say we had a wonderful time at the Cottage. We got some amazing days weather wise and on the days which were not so good the wood burning stoves were perfect. Thanks for all your help getting us settled in. We hope to be back again sometime soon :-)

    The view from the Cottage yesterday morning – sad to come home – looking forward to visiting again”

    Julie and Martin | May 2013
  • “Thanks for a great holiday. The house is fantastic, so well equipped and the views are amazing! The weather has not been great but the house was great to come back to after a day exploring the island.  Wood burner on and a glass of wine, bliss. So sad to leave”

    Ruth and John | May 2013
  • “What a fantastic position! The views from the house are absolutely stunning. We have had a great holiday exploring Skye, and the weather has surpassed our expectations. Many thanks for a great holiday in your lovely house”

    Tobi and Mike | May 2013
  • “This was our opportunity to get some time to ourselves and relax – the cottage, it’s location, the way it is decorated and furnished, could not have been better. We had a fantastic time. It was just fab. We would recommend to anyone, and have already done that. We would return in a heartbeat”

    Mr and Mrs Gates | Gloucestershire | Jan 2013
  • “We have just returned from a stay at the Skye White House and are already dying to go back!

    The cottage itself is wonderful – homely, cosy and with everything you need. However it is the the views that are truly breathtaking, waking up to the sun shining over the mountains and the Sound was spectacular!

  • “The house, the island and the weather have all surpassed our expectations – spectacular!

    You should really make more fuss about the view from the cottage on your website because it is truly stunning.

    Could not have asked for more. We can’t wait to come back and wish we didn’t have to leave today. Thank you”

  • Thank you very much for allowing us to stay in your much loved family home. We have had a fabulous holiday. This area of Skye is so beautiful and we have been so blessed by dry sunny days.

    The White House is absolutely stunning. It has been sympathetically restored to provide a stylish, contemporary and inviting living space. The quality furnishings and oh so comfortable beds are a joy!

    Lastly I have to mention the view. We will miss waking up each morning to this truly stunning ever-changing panorama.

    Ooh.. I forgot to mention the stars. We were fortunate enough to have a clear sky one evening and the dark sky was spectacular

LOCATION | GETTING THERE

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.SWH-Location-Map

CAR | The easiest way to reach the Isle of Skye is via the Skye Bridge, part of the A87. 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.

TRAIN | You can travel to Fort William or the Kyle of Lochalsh on the rail network, which includes an OVERNIGHT SLEEPER service from London Euston. In Fort William you can catch the JACOBITE STEAM TRAIN to Mallaig made famous by Harry Potter – a truly stunning way to reach Skye.

SEA | A car ferry services operated by CALEDONIAN MACBRAYNE (CALMAC) departing from Mallaig (on the mainland) – arriving Armadale pier on Skye. The network extends to Raasay and the small Isles – Eigg, Muck, Rum and Canna. They also offer routes from the Isle of Skye to the Isle of Lewis.

Perhaps the most beautiful way to reach Skye is over the Kylerhea Straits on the community owned and operated turn table SKYE FERRY which runs between Easter and October. This stretch of water is the shortest distance from the Isle of Skye to the mainland and was in centuries past used by cattle drovers to swim their cattle across – this being the closest point on the Isle of Skye to the mainland.
