“First Class Accommodation, Dog Friendly”

The one bed-roomed cottage is very spacious with a lounge/kitchen area & bathroom downstairs & a large bed-room upstairs.

The kitchen has ample cooking & eating utensils, gas cooker & oven, micro-wave & fridge with ice-box.

The lounge is fitted with a couch & chair placed strategically in front of a large picture window which is one of the best features of the cottage. Just sit & marvel at the ever changing vistas. We watched a spectacular sunset one evening with beautiful pinks & reds.

There is also a TV/DVD combi with a selection of DVD’s. A box filled with maps & brochures with lots of local information is available.

The bathroom has a hidden washing machine, an iron & board, hoover etc

The bedroom has a comfortable bed & plenty of hanging/cupboard space. Great views from the upstairs windows.

A small fenced off garden with washing line & seating is to the side & back of the property.

They have thought of everything which is required for a comfortable stay, from supplying torches & matches to first aid box & fire extinguisher.

Angus & Liz are a lovely couple who are very helpful. They will partake of their knowledge & tips of Skye.
Beside the cottage is the owners bungalow which has a couple of b&b rooms.

Exit left for Mackenzie's Store, a minutes’ drive away, which has nice take-away food, a shop with limited stock & petrol.
Exit right, a couple of minutes’ drive away, is a Mace which has a larger selection in store.

Located 16 miles from Portree. Drive thru Staffin, past a Mace supermarket on the left & the Cottage is on the left facing Staffin Bay & Island.

Highly recommended.

I was lucky enough to stay here in April 2016 and the first thing that's hard to miss is the view. An absolutely amazing view out to sea that kept me entertained for hours.
Liz and Angus were great hosts and we were made to feel very welcome. The cottage is very cosy and in a great location to tour the rest of the Isle. Highly recommended.

We couldn't be happier that you had a lovely holiday at Cottage at Seadrift, thank you for taking the time to tell us about it. Being met with that fabulous sea view and the lovely owners must have been quite the welcome! We certainly hope that you return to enjoy the place all over again very very soon!

“Nice cottage with ideal location”
Reviewed November 9, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Visited Skye for a week for one week in the beginning of November.

We were very lucky with the weather. Cottage is well located near many tourist places in the North of Skye, beautiful views from the cottage so you feel you do not want to even go anywhere.

Cottage is quite spacious even that it looks small on photos.

“Wonderful cottage, delightful location!”

My wife and I have just spent a week on the Isle of Skye based in this delightful location with magnificent sea views right from the cottage window! The cottage is not only advantageously situated, but also extensively equipped; with everything you need for self-catering right at your finger tips.
The views, the peace and the refinement all add up to make this an excellent stay for any couple; and if that is not enough, there is the super king-sized bed with the views of the stars overhead! The landlord is also a very good source of information about the wildlife on the island, having lived in that vicinity all of his life.
