    Katie's cottage is a typical Skye croft house. It was built in the early 1900's. Back then it cost £10 and three hogs to build and the stone mason would not get his daily payment if he did not complete a full course of stones for that day.

    The inside is cosy and welcoming with soft colours and natural materials like stone and wood. Both gable ends have exposed stone walls which add to the period character of the property.

Lots to do even in such a remote location and was a wonderful break. Skye was amazing and will be stunning in summer months was quite misty but brightened up in the afternoon. Weather... more
