About the Cottage

 

We regret that pets are not permitted and that this is a no smoking property

 

There is parking for two vehicles, with space at the side of the main shed on the drive for a motorbike.

Kitchen Diner - Self Catering Holiday Cottage, Breakish, Skye

Well-equipped kitchen diner accommodates six comfortably

The main door from the garden opens into a spacious, bright and modern kitchen-diner. We have an extendable oak table that easily seats 6, allowing guests to sit in comfort and enjoy an evening meal.

 

The kitchen area is fitted with electric cooker, dishwasher, fridge, microwave, toaster and coffee-maker. It is fully equipped to cater for up to 6, with enough utensils, crockery etc to allow for making full use of the dishwasher! Plastic plates and cups are provided for use in the garden.

The lounge - Self Catering Holiday Cottage, Breakish, Skye

Living room with seating for six, TV and DVD player, wiring for connecting laptop to TV, docking station and wood-burning stove

The sitting room, with window looking out over the garden and water, seats six and is comfortably furnished with 2 leather sofas and a single armchair. There is a wood-burning stove, which will also take peat which you can buy at most local petrol stations.

 

The log burner will be made up prior to your arrival. There will be ample wood and lighters available throughout your stay, so we encourage you to use this as it is both a fabulous way of heating the sitting room and is very eco-friendly.

 

There is a 32" TV, tuned to Freesat, with DVD attached and spare HDMI cable so you can run your laptop through the big screen. There is also an IPod dock with auxiliary cables.

With a WC and wash hand basin, this has an amazing P-shaped bath with shower over - operated from the mains system so gives a really spectacular shower in the mornings or when you come in from a hard day's walking on the Cuillins.
