    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6
    The Anchorage is a delightful self-catering holiday cottage on the Isle of Skye.

    Located on the foreshore of one of the best holiday locations in Scotland, The Anchorage overlooks Loch Alsh and the heather clad mountains of the Scottish Highlands beyond.

    The cottage is the perfect all seasons self catering holiday accommodation for seaside-loving, mountain-walking, wildlife-watching, peace-searching people who love wilderness beaches, gastronomic delights and a touch of the Celtic.
    The garden has a gate which leads from the right on to the high tide line, from where one can fish or just sit and watch the yachts, naval and fishing boats come and go, including the occasional submarine or cruise liner. Opposite is the lighthouse-keeper's cottage Eilean Bàn where author Gavin Maxwell (Ri...

    Additional amenities & feature info
    The house is well equipped and interior designed to our own standards. You'll find pictures of our children on the wall and binoculars and probably some whisky in the cupboards. This is not a house that has been 'done up cheaply to let out' and we find that it attracts people who treat it the affection that we show it ourselves.

    How to get there
    Airport: Inverness: 74.6 mi
    Railway: Kyle: 1.9 mi
    Ferry: Mallaig: 26.7 mi
    Approximately 4 hours north west of Glasgow, the western route takes in some of the most spectacular scenery in Scotland, including Loch Lomond, Glen Coe, Ben Nevis and Kintail.

    Alternatively there are regular very low cost flights from Luton with Easy-Jet to Inverness. Then train to Kyle of Lochalsh - one of the prettiest railway journeys in the world! The house is 5 minutes taxi journey away.
    Or just drive from anywhere in the UK - it's about 10 hours drive from London. But you won't find a more dramatic journey anywhere in the UK!

We just got back from a week at the Anchorage. It was perfect for us. We went from the top of Skye to Locharron area and it was very convenient. Local restaurants and pubs to walk to. Either Kyle of Lochalsh right over the bridge or Broadford in the opposite direction have co-ops for groceries, shops and petrol. (Broadford's station... more

Our wish to holiday in Skye was complemented by the wonderful and efficient service accompanying our booking, along with the owner's tips and guidelines to the their home and the Isle itself.
