A cosy cabin for two on a working croft looking out across beautiful Loch Snizort.
A cosy, open-plan cabin for two overlooking the sea on the Waternish coast, Isle of Skye. The accommodation consists of a lounge area, a well provided kitchen, a toilet and shower room, and a double bed on the mezzanine. The lounge also contains a comfortable sofa bed. The Cabin is also equipped with a washing machine, wifi, plenty of books and a selection of DVDs and tapes, with a video monitor. In addition, to help your holiday, we have provided a range of local information, maps and wild life identification guides.
The Cabin is situated on a traditional working croft – Highland Cattle, sheep and a friendly – sometimes over-friendly – band of chickens. The surrounding area is a quiet crofting community along a single track road by the sea.
There are beautiful views from The Cabin and croft. To the north lies Lewis and Harris, the Outer Hebrides; in the west there are hill grazing grounds and some lovely walks; to the east across the beautiful Loch Snizort is the ferry port of Uig and the Trotternish Mountains behind; and to the south, are views to the Raasay and mainland mountains some sixty miles away. The Cabin enjoys, when the weather is kind, beautiful sights of both the Sun and Moon rising over the Trotternish ridge across the loch. In the summer the sun rises early, perhaps too early for some! However it is quite spectacular. Another spectacle are the Northern Lights occasionally seen during autumn and winter.
There are frequent sightings of eagles, whales and dolphins from the croft, and a range of birdlife and wild flowers are found on the croft land, and surrounding hills and cliffs. The Waternish countryside make the Cabin an ideal centre for walking or cycling.
We are very sorry but we are unable to take any pets at the cabin because of lambs, sheep and hens which roam the croft.
