Kingsburgh Boathouse

Isle of Skye Holiday Cottage

The two-storey cottage has underfloor warming throughout, enhanced downstairs by the solid Scandinavian wood-burning stove set within the original stonework.

The comfortable open-plan sitting-dining area has cosy sofas and spectacular picture windows looking to the Cuillin ridge to the south and to the Outer Isles to the north, where the setting sun in summer offers the most wonderful vistas.

The dining table, custom-made on Skye, is a special feature. The fully-equipped kitchen area has all necessary supplies and the downstairs cloakroom accommodates the washer/drier in case outdoor clothes need laundered while tired walkers enjoy a dram by the fire. Broadband, not too fast, is available.

Upstairs, the property shows its true dimensions with its large bedroom with ‘cathedral’ wooden ceiling offering also a morning coffee corner with outlook over the loch and to the Cuillins. The super-king bed with orthopaedic mattress can be offered with down and feather pillows and duvet or hypo-allergenic; by request.

Adjoining the bedroom is what must be Skye’s most spectacular bathroom with double-ended bathtub, walk-in shower and bidet. 

Essentials provided include dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, liquitabs for the washer/drier, hairdryer, bathrobes and slippers, hand and body wash, hand sanitiser, bin liners, clingfilm, tinfoil, tea and ground coffee as well as a good supply of logs.
