Cottage in Aird Bernisdale, Near Portree, Isle of Skye, Scotland - Ideal Base For Touring The Isle Of Skye
Skye Croft is bright and airy, featuring French doors onto a decking area overlooking the loch. Spend an afternoon curled up with a good book in our cosy living room; enjoy the view from the back deck or sip your tea at the picnic table whilst taking in the unspoilt views. Take a walk down to the shore front, or along to the point of the peninsula. Whistle or sing to attract the seals, as they are naturally curious creatures and it doesn't take them long to find you! Watch the Heron elegantly fish from the rocks and delight in the Oyster Catcher's amazing aerial displays. In the evenings, make sure you have your camera to hand. As the back garden faces West, be prepared for some astounding sunsets. No matter how you spend your holiday, you'll come away with lifelong memories to share with your family and friends.
*** Please note, Skye Croft is for a maximum of 2 adult guests only and we operate a strict No Pets policy ***

About Gail Sherwood
I currently live and work in Central Scotland and take every opportunity I can to visit my little croft on Skye.
Why Gail Sherwood chose Isle of Skye
Since an early age, camping and caravanning on the West Coast of Scotland, it has been my dream since being a teenager to own my own little cottage on the waterfront in the Highlands & Islands. I love the natural ruggedness and the astounding sunsets that only the West coast can bring.
What makes this Cottage unique
I get so excited about visiting Skye Croft, just like any holidaymaker. Nature is all around, be it wildlife, plant life, sea life, dramatic skies or dramatic weather! Being central to Portree, Dunvegan & Uig makes it ideal for taking days out and touring which is still something I love to do.
Great cottage with stunning views.
We had a lovely relaxing break at Skye Croft, the cottage has everything you need, most importantly though are the beautiful views and the abundance of wildlife - seals, otters, cormorants, herons, oyster catchers etc. we watched daily from the croft. We visited most areas of Skye during our stay, the cottage is in a great position for touring the island.
Dear Gail thank you we had a lovely holiday.We enjoyed walking on Skye and the setting of the croft was perfect. The Croft itself had everything we needed,however a rubbish bin in the kitchen would have been useful.
Thank you again Francis Rush
Warm and comfortable. Well presented and excellent location
A wonderful little Croft to gain a true feeling of living in Scotland in a toasty rural environment.
We came a long way from Melbourne but it was truely worth the journey. What a absolutely great way to experience the true Scotland. Many thanks Gail.

Fantastic Croft beautiful views cleanliness excellent everything about the Croft is 1st class our second stay and will return
Fabulous place to spend a week. .. or more.
We loved Skye Croft from the moment we actually saw it for the first time at the end of the road to locking the door and having to leave after our weeks stay.
We spent as much time as we could at the cottage, in the garden, in the Kotor Hut, at the waters edge and on the peninsula. ... so we didn't see all that Skye has to offer.... we'll just have to go again. ... and again.
Only a few footsteps from Skye Croft take you to the natural rocky and rugged shoreline.
The croft is ideally situated, being only 9 miles West of the Isle of Skye's colourful harbour town of Portree, the capital of the island, where full shopping facilities include: supermarkets, shops, cafes, restaurants, boat trips and a tourist information centre.
Approx 14 miles North of Skye Croft lies Uig, a small harbour town set in a stunning sheltered bay. From here you can take a ferry trip over to Tarbert on the Isle of Harris in the Outer Hebrides.
Salmon Fishing available on the River Snizort approx 2 miles.
Horse Riding centre approx 3 miles.
