Thank you to our most recent guests at our self-catering holiday cottage on the Isle of Skye, Scotland – the Skye White House who left a lovely note in our guest book.

“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”

A special place to stay on the Isle of Skye | Cosy self-catering holiday cottage with stunning views in Sleat, Skye, ScotlandA special place to stay on the Isle of Skye | Cosy self-catering holiday cottage with stunning viewin Sleat, Skye, Scotland | Ein besonderer Ort auf der Isle of Skye bleiben | Gemütliches Selbstversorger-Urlaub Ferienhaus mit herrlichem Blick in Sleat, Skye, Schottland | Un endroit spécial pour séjourner sur l’île de Skye | gîte indépendant confortable avec une vue imprenable à Sleat, Skye, en Ecosse

There are many special places on the Isle of Skye. The Skye Museum of Island Life has preserved a collection of old fashioned thatched cottages prevalent throughout the Highlands and Islands in the 19th century. These cottages hug the ground ensuring protection from the Atlantic storms. www.skyewhitehouse.com - holiday cottage in Sleat the garden of Skye Isle of Skye Scotland United Kingdom, perfect for walking, climbing, whisky tours, beaches, armadale castle and gardens, cland donald centre amd skye bridge, jacobite harry potter steam train and ferry to Glenelg or Armadale - postboat to the pub Old Forge

James Boswell in an account of his visit to Skye along with Dr. Johnson in 1773 describes a house in which they stayed in south Skye. He states: ‘We had no rooms that we could command, for the good people here had no notion that a man could have any occasion but for a mere sleeping-place’.

The museum is a must see on a visit to Skye. For more information see http://www.skyemuseum.co.ukBeautiful and luxurious self-catering accommodation, Isle of Skye, Scotland

The Skye White House demonstrates certain characteristics of the thatched cottages of old. The compact size, thick walls and wood panelling provide protection from the elements. The modern kitchen with its induction hob and the two wood burning stoves (one in the living room and the other in the dining room) provide the life and warmth. The stunning view provides for the soul.

Our most recent guest left a really lovely comment in our guestbook.  If you are still looking for a lovely place to stay come visit us at the Skye White House.

Review | Beautiful Self-catering Holiday Cottage | Scotland | Isle of Skye | Sleat | Review | Schöne Selbstverpflegung Ferienhaus | Schottland | Isle of Skye | Sleat | Examen | Cottage Belle vacances Location | Ecosse | Ile de Skye | Sleat“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 to enough to have a clear sky one evening and the dark sky was spectacular.”
