Swallows often nest near the cottage


The Old Croft House has a wood burning stove in the living room and an electric heating system throughout the house keeping it warm and cosy. The kitchen is fully equipped with fridge, freezer, oven, microwave and washing machine. Other facilities include free wifi, TV, DVD and bluetooth speakers, bath with electric shower, hairdryer & iron. A cot and highchair are also available. (Please note that the wifi can be a little unpredictable as we are in a rural area so please do not rely on this or expect it to be as good as your wifi at home.)

Bedding and towels are provided for our guests. Logs and kindling for the wood burner are also included.

We welcome well behaved dogs (maximum of 3) and we are pleased to provide an enclosed garden for them to play in. All we ask is that you are mindful of the local livestock and keep your pets under close control & the gates closed.

The Isle of Skye

Famous for its breathtaking, often moody, scenery, Skye is a fantastic destination for those who truly love the great outdoors. As the largest of the Inner Hebridean islands, it’s not short of iconic landmarks, such as the Old Man of Storr, the Quiraing and the Cuillin. It’s name is thought to originate from the Norse word ‘ski’ meaning ‘cloud and ‘Ey’ meaning ‘Island’.


In the 19th Century, crofting was a traditional way of dividing up the land to allow tenants to run small-scale farms. They were only given around 2-5 hectares (5-12.5 acres) of land (even less after the damaging Highland Clearances), meaning that their income was very low and many crofters developed additional skills to make ends meet.

''We had a lovely time in the cottage. Spent many hours sat looking out at the fantastic views. The resident wildlife is an added bonus. Felt like a home from home and just wish other cottages were the same. Many thanks''
