Green Pastures Cottage

Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Waternish, Isle of Skye, The Hebrides, Scotland
Welcome to Green Pastures, our wonderfully cosy, self-catering croft cottage at Gillen on the peaceful Waternish peninsula on the Isle of Skye, with its stunning views over the sea to Trotternish and the Outer Hebrides. Watch the sun rise over the sea from the large picture windows in the main bedroom and the lounge, relax in the peace and quiet of this very special location. What makes us special? Apart from the views, this is no sterile holiday cottage with no soul... this is a home, with character, warmth, cupboards full, personal pictures....a home from home, in luxury!!

Ideal as a romantic get away from it all for couples; or for two couples wanting a warm retreat; the cottage sleeps four people in two bedrooms. The main bedroom is stylishly appointed with a king size double, and large picture windows overlooking the sea. Have brea...

Fantastic cottage, perfect for getting away from it all. Cosy but luxurious cottage. Amazing views, especially the snow on the far mountains. Really helpful owners who managed any issues with genuine concern and promptly. Would defiantly go back here again.
