An original 1830's crofter's cottage that has been completely renovated to provide a calm and peaceful retreat in the surrounding rugged landscape of the Scottish Highlands and Islands. Situated beside Camustianavaig Bay on the Isle of Skye, the house enjoys a rural location, yet is only five miles from Portree. The space is decorated in a soft minimal style and offers a tranquil Highland hideaway for up to two people.

The house

The local area

The Crofter’s House is a two minute walk from Camustianavaig Bay, home to seals and otters and sea eagles. Situated at the foot of Ben Tianavaig, the area has a very quiet and rural feel, but local shops and restaurants are only five miles away in Portree.

Camustianavaig is centrally positioned on the Isle of Skye making it an ideal base from which to explore the island’s many attractions including The Old Man of Storr, The Quiraing, The Fairy Pools, the Cuillin Mountains, Loch Coruisk, Neist Point Lighthouse, Talisker Distillery, and Coral Beach.

Wow! This property is just gorgeous and a wonderful place to enjoy the magical Isle of Skye from. Everything is better than described. Gorgeous setting, lovely secluded location, high quality furnishings and finishes give this modest, elegant and understated cottage the feeling of luxury. Seriously, nothing disappointed and if anything, everything was better than expected. The wood fire place was a great touch. The kitchen perfectly equipped and set up. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the laundry facilities made doing a wash on holiday an absolute breeze. Sarah, congratulations again on such a stunning listing. When we return to Skye we will be looking up The Crofter’s House again… well in advance, as I am sure you likely already be booked out! Thank you again!

What a haven of peace! The house is cosy, extremely beautiful, very well decorated in Scandinavian style. Everything is thought in detail. The setting around the house is beautiful – we saw deer and on the last day a group of seals were happily playing in the water on the beach near by! The kitchen is very well equipped. The weather was warm so we didn’t use the fireplace, the electric heating worked perfectly. The house is equipped with dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. What can I say! Just perfect!!

I can’t imagine there’s anywhere more beautiful or stylish to stay on Skye. We had the happiest time in front of the fire morning and night. The house is a short walk to an almost deserted cove full of curious seals who pop up their heads to say hello. It’s a perfect base for exploring Skye, the only issue is that you’ll never want to leave the house! Can not recommend this place enough. If you find it free for your dates – book it quick. It’s very very special. Thank you for having us x
