    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
    Situated right on the shore, in a large garden, Waterside Cottage is located in Broadford, Isle of Skye and is a detached former crofting house dating from around 1857, with bags of character and charm. It has 4 bedrooms (3 with sea views), 3 bathrooms and comfortably sleeps 8. A wood burning stove makes winter stays as enjoyable as summer ones and the layout means that it is just as welcoming for 2 people as it is for 8.

    Brilliantly located with direct access to the sea you can walk onto the shore from the garden or just watch the birdlife (greylag geese, herons, ringed plovers, oyster catchers, curlews, shelducks, widgeon, sandpipers) from the window. Broadford Bay is known for its superb birdlife and you can while away many an hour checking for new arrivals. There is lockable storage f...

We were lucky to enjoy some fantastic weather during our week but even if it had rained all week we would have enjoyed spending time at this comfortable home from home. The house is on the main road into Broadford but you are not disturbed by road noise at night. The views are wonderful and the log burning stove kept... more

Where to start? We loved the cottage and the location. Everything and more with a beach just off the garden and shops, restaurants and just off the main road making it easy to explore the island. The owners have thought of everything you need from binoculars,barbecue, plastic plates and spoons for the younglings to a wonderful log fire add in...

Inside, the place exudes warmth and cosiness and the furnishings and fittings make it a very comfortable place to stay. Bags of room for everyone and great bathrooms and shower... more
