MacKenzie Cottage is situated in Satran with views of Loch Harport and Carbost in the distance.
Satran is in the area of Skye known as Minginish and a ten minute drive from the Cuillin Hills. The area around abounds with wild life; otters, oystercatchers, sea-eagles, golden-eagles, sparrow-hawks, along with buzzards that sweep and soar along the glen.

About the neighborhood
Our cottage is in what has become know as the centre of Skye and is dominated by The Cuillin with its many peaks, vertical faces and steep ridges, in summer they are an exhilarating and challenging outing, in winter a major mountaineering expedition. So please be careful!! Viewed early in the morning from Glen Brittle, or later in the day from Elgol, this mountain range is the photographers delight. Do not be surprised if you go around a corner to find a film crew filming for the next blockbuster and if you have seen Prometheus, Ronin, Stardust, Highlander to name a few you might recognise the scenery.<BR><BR>The larger towns and villages of Skye are within 15 to 45 minutes of the cottage. Broadford offers a wonderful view over the bay to the Isle of Pabbay, bespoke jewelers, g... more
