Cottage in Aird, Isle of Skye, Scottish Highlands, Scotland - Secluded & Peaceful Location, 2 Minute Walk To A Lovely Rocky Beach
About Alison Phillips
We have always loved holidaying in Scotland and bought The Old Croft House on a whim when we saw it (as a derelict cottage) and fell in love with it and its wonderful location!
Alison Phillips purchased this Cottage in 2003
Why Alison Phillips chose Ardvasar
Skye is a beautiful island and Sleat is 'the garden of Skye' and aptly named as the greenest part of the island. The cottage is located in Aird, a village on the southerly most tip of Skye and we have amazing views out to Eigg & Rhum & Ardnamurchan. It is a truly magical place to stay & we love it!
What makes this Cottage unique
We go for a rest from the world, peace and tranquility, wild storms, beautiful sunsets and great wildlife & walks.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Peace and tranquillity in abundance
Simply stunning location and a lovely little house that had everything we needed. Much time was spend in the garden just looking at the views. Brilliant secure garden for the dogs and the cove was an added bonus for all of us.
Would highly recommend to anyone that wants to get away from it all.
Excellent cottage in a fantastic remote location.
Superb cosy cottage with amazing views.
Thank you for your review. Glad you enjoyed the cottage and the views! We hope to welcome you back one day.
A trip to stay in a little piece of paradise
The Croft was wonderful, the scenery magnificent, the weather unbelievably warm and sunny. We wanted to get away from it all and recharge our batteries and we left after a week having had the most amazing time in our first trip to Skye. The peace, tranquility and scenery were just what we needed.Everything about the stay was perfect from booking, paying, directions, instructions for the croft. Everything we needed was there for us. Vixen our Patterdale Terrier had a wonderful time in the garden which is almost terrier proof. I can't recommend this property highly enough.
Lovely cosy cottage in a peaceful setting
We loved our stay at the Old Croft House! Cottage was perfect and homely, very well equipped. The setting is wonderful -breathtaking sea views towards Eigg. Large garden perfect for our dogs, and short walk to a small beach where we enjoyed fishing, watching for wildlife and admiring the view towards the mainland. Can't wait to return!
A beautiful cottage in a fabulous location, comfortable and well equipped.
A beautiful cottage, comfortable and very well equipped, in the most stunning location near the bay. We had a fantastic week, walking and sightseeing and eating meals in the garden overlooking the water. Can't wait to go back.
Großartiges Ferienhaus im ruhigeren Teil der Isle of Skye
Wir haben eine wunderschöne Woche in diesem gemütlichen Ferienhaus verbracht. Das Haus bietet sämtlichen Komfort und wunderschöne Ausblicke auf den Atlantik. Es ist nicht ganz so einsam gelegen wie die Fotos vermuten lassen, es sind ein paar Häuschen in der Umgebung. Sehr nette Nachbarn.
Wir haben es immer sehr genossen vom Trubel der restlichen Insel wieder zurück in dieses entspannte Paradies zurückzukehren.
Toll auch für die Kinder mit dem großen Garten und den angrenzenden Feldern mit Zugang zum Meer, wo wir Delfine, Roben und Otter gesehen haben.
Wir kommen gerne wieder!
Thank you for your review. We are so pleased you had a lovely holiday on Skye. We are currently updating our photos and website, so hopefully guests will get a better idea of the location and surrounding area when we do that. We love the quiet location, but as you say, there are enough houses around to feel secluded but not isolated. We hope you will recommend the cottage to others who may be visiting Scotland in the future.
