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 stones for the walls were quarried from the hills at the back of the cottage and brought on site using the Glendale community horse. Certainly different times!
In 2009 Katie's cottage was completely stripped down to the bare walls and fully renovated during 2009/2010.
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.

We used the fabulous fire place one evening for warmth which was lovely, the living area is so comfortable with the kitchen and lounge being an open space. Loved the utility area and... more

Have just returned,fabulous base to relax after busy days walking & sight seeing. Even helped a local crofter feeding the new born orphan lambs. Enjoyed some amazing fresh local seafood. Due to the remoteness of the property we had to be prepared food wise. Larger freezer would make life easier as there is only the tiny one in top of... more

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
