Looking for the best self-catering accommodation on the Isle of Skye? Welcome to Green Pastures, our wonderfully cosy, luxury self-catering croft cottage at Gillen on the peaceful Waternish peninsula on the Isle of Skye, with its stunning views over the sea to Trotternish and the Outer Hebrides.

Just returned from a wonderful week at Green Pastures. If you are looking for solitude, great views, real fires, a welcoming home from home atmosphere then look no further. This cottage is just bliss. I went with my husband and 9yr old daughter and each one of us just fell into a relaxed state of mind. The views are amazing... more

Thank you for taking the time to review our cottage. Wow what an amazing review, we are so pleased that you loved our cottage so much. We do try to make the house feel like a home, because we know that sometimes holiday rentals can feel quite soulless and impersonal. It is lovely to light the fire and relax, isn't... more

Beautiful cliff side location. Quite remote and a bit far away from most of the places we visited (an oversight on our part!) but driving on Skye is a much more pleasant experience than driving on England so not a big issue! The welcome basket was a nice touch and it was great to be able to have herbs/spices/s+p etc... more

Management response:

We are so pleased that you enjoyed our cottage on your short break and found it to be peaceful and cosy. The cottage's peacefulness is partly due to it being in a quiet location but nevertheless it is only 30 minutes drive from the island's capital, Portree, and close to Dunvegan Castle and Neist Point. Skye is quite a big... more

We spent a week in Green Pastures Cottage - the weather wasn't great, blowing a gale all week. But then you don't go to Skye in February for the weather! The location of the cottage was just perfect for us - off the beaten track, which made for a very relaxing and tranquil holiday. Just what we needed before baby...
