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

  • “We arrived on Sunday 3rd at about 5pm so was pitch dark – got a wee bit lost trying to find the cottage, so stopped at Eileen Iarmain Hotel to ask for directions and came across our neighbour who was very helpful.

    Arrived at the cottage, beautiful! So homely and cosy. We woke up the next day, opened the blinds and were absolutely speechless! The views here are incredible. Did not expect that after arriving in the pitch dark – lovely surprise to wake up to!

    We were a bit worried about the weather with it being the start of January, but have been very lucky, yesterday was beautiful – took a drive to the fairy pools – amazing – and then had a lovely walk up the Old man of Storr. Came home after a long day of walking and sightseeing, got the fire going, glass (or 2!) of prosecco – bliss!

    Have had an amazing few days – wish we could stay longer! Bed is so comfortable, bath lovely, will hopefully be back again! Thank you”.

    Joanne and Lewis | Fife | January 2016
  • “We have had a lovely week in your lovely cottage.

    Survived a storm and copied up by the log fire. Stunning views through the mist and rain. Watched the bay lit up by lighting…Enjoyed Every minute”.

    Ruth and John | Edinburgh | November 2015
  • “Great holiday! Stunning views from the cottage which was warm and cosy.

    Recommend Kinloch Lodge for lunch. Boat trip from Elgol to Loch Coruisk also excellent.”

    Jenny, John, Gill and Dave | October 2015
  • “Lovely, cosy house and so much to do that we hope to return soon to explore more of Skye’s magic”.

    Jayne and Mark | Glasgow | September 2015
  • “We have had fantastic weather all week and cannot believe our luck – especially for our first visit to Skye.

    The views from the cottage are truly wonderland have made this a magical holiday. Some favourite trips include glass bottom boat (sailing from Kyleakin), Dunvegan Castle (beautiful gardens), Isle of Ornsay (pretty spot just up the road), walk to the Point of Sleat. A beautiful islandto drive around with wonderful walks for all abilities. We’ll be back”.

    Sharon, John and Mandy | Dunblane and Northamptonshire | September 2015
  • “A truly wonderful week. The cottage is really terrific, well equipped and so comfortable. Really cozy, warm and welcoming. Was really terrific to meet Torsten on our stay also.

    We really enjoyed our nights by the fire with a lovely glass of wine after our active days. We covered lots of miles sightseeing and did a few good walks. Standout activities included the walk to the Point of Sleat, Neist Point lighthouse (a must see), boat to Loch Coruisk (a must do), Plockton (so cute), Coral Beach (just lovely).

    We would love to return one day as we have had a really magical week. Will recommend to our Aussie friends! Thank you Torsten – your cottage is wonderful.

    Carol, John and Anne | Australia and Edinburgh  | September 2015
  • “Just spent the last week in your lovely little cottage.

    In terms of the weather it was a week of two halves. Beautiful for the first half and raining cats and dogs for the second. We have done some lovely little walks whilst we have been here (all we could manage with a 5 year old) and ate some lovely food. Recommend the Skye Pie Cafe and Cafe Sia (Baked Alaska was gorgeous).

    We will really miss this cottage and waking up to the most amazing views – “Therapy for the eyes” – thank you so much”

    Gayle, Andy and Freya | Newcastle | August 2015
  • “As I glance out over the waters of the Sound of Sleat, light shafts paint over the slopes and the ocean again.

    The old castle sits and awaits patiently for a reawakening. Clouds gather clinging over Scottish mountains.

    The ever changing view, the sound of the rain, rays of sun like spotlights over green pastures.
    We’ve fallen in love with Skye – this island is so much more than we expected – from the Cuillins to the Sea.

    We loved this cottage – we felt so at home that it is very hard to leave”

    Dagmar and Adrian | USA | August 2015
  • “Thank you for sharing this little piece of paradise with us.

    We had a wonderful week exploring Skye, doing loads of walks and hikes – we did 70km in 1 week!

    Dungeon Castle and Neist Point. Castle is really nice and Coral Beach a few miles from the castle is also really nice. Glenelg to the Brochs. Easy walk and the Brochs are really interesting. Armadale Castle and the Point of Sleat walk. The walk was really nice. Plockton and seal boat trip from Plockton. We wanted to do a trip with aqua explore from Elgol but weren’t able to get tickets. Book in advance if you want this trip. Walked the Old Man of Storr. really steep walk but worth the effort. Walked by the Quirang – really really nice. Thanks again for everything”

    Aline and Tom | Switzerland and UK | July 2015
  • “Our last evening in this lovely cottage and have lit the fire for the first time. No need to comment on the views which, unless you’re very unlucky you’ll discover for yourself – and if the weather is so terrible you don’t see anything the last thing you’ll want to see is us saying how amazing they were.

    Have climbed Bla Bheinn and Beinn Sgritheall – both ‘real’ mountains and neither a walk in the park but well worth the effort. Enjoyed an evening at the Three Chimneys (worth saving up for. Went to Glen Elg ferry and Glen Brittle. 3 or 4 photos at @henry_bear100 (Twitter).

    Hope to come back “

  • “Lovely cottage – stunning view (better than expected).

    A lovely restful, calming place!

    Highlights of the week – walk to Point of Sleat (stunning white sandy beach – beware of the jellyfish) & Coral Beach. Took Misty Isle boat trip – well worth the time and money.

    Leaving Skye on a windy, rainy day but still sad to leave, Thanks”

    The Hall Family | July 2015
  • “Great house, great views, intermittent weather – but we had a lovely stay!

    We recommend Lake Coruisk and Coral Beach – beautiful. We did the Misty Isle boat trip to the lake (cheapest and circled round to look at dolphins and seals”

    The Brice-Stevens Family | June 2015
  • “The Skye White House is absolutely gorgeous!

    Such a cracking view from the bench,windows and amazing to wake up to & open the blinds to see Knock Bay!

    Connor and I have loved every day here whether it be sunshine or rain. I’ve always wanted to visit Skye and it’s even more beautiful  and picturesque than I could’ve ever imagined.

    The cottage has been wonderful to stay in, beautiful garden, lovely neighbours including Matt who taught us air rifle shooting with his gorgeous pup Ralph.

    Gorgeous break and peaceful atmosphere. Thank you for allowing us to stay here. It’s been a wonderful honeymoon.

    Such a braw bonny place!”

    Connor and Iona | The Newlyweds | June 2015
  • “What a place!

    Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful home with us.

    Such a stunning location. We have loved watching the ever changing view, the walks, the wildlife, the food!

    We will certainly be back”

    Emma and Greg | London | April 2015
  • “ANOTHER GREAT BREAK! DIFFERENT SEASON AND STILL LOTS TO SEE.

    THE COTTAGE WAS COSY, COMFY AND VERY RELAXING. WE ARE SAD TO GO HOME.

    HOWEVER I COULDN’T THINK OF A BETTER START TO THE NEW YEAR AND WISH ALL WHO COME AFTER US A HEALTHY AND HAPPY NEW YEAR.

    LOVE FROM”

    RUTH AND JOHN | LINLITHGOW | NEW YEAR 2014/5
  • “THIS HOUSE IS A LOVELY HOME”

    ERIK AND NATASJA | UTRECHT | CHRISTMAS 2014
  • “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.

    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”

  • “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”

  • “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”

  • “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”

  • “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!”

    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!

    Thank you so much, we will definitly come back soon”

    Lucy | Newcastle Upon Tyne | March 2013
  • “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”

    Lucy and Andrew | March 2013
  • 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.

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.

AIR | Inverness airport is a 2 hour drive along some of the most exhilarating roads in the United Kingdom. Inverness is served by several UK airports including London Gatwick, London Luton, Southampton, Manchester, Bristol, Birmingham and Jersey. It is also served by international airports including Zurich, Sumburgh, Dusseldorf and Amsterdam. You can also fly to Glasgow or Edinburgh airports although the drive is longer at 4 hours and 5 hours respectively.

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.
