West Cottage was built around 1870 as a typical croft house with a byre beside it but gradually deteriorated during the 1990s until it was in danger of becoming derelict. In 2007 the old cottage was stripped back to the stone shell; it was re-roofed and completely refurbished to a very high standard and a large living-room was built on the end of the old house on the site of the former byre. The cottage offers comfortable accommodation over 2 floors. The living room, kitchen/dining and double bedroom with en-suite shower are on the ground floor with a further double bedroom, twin room and bathroom upstairs. The kitchen is fully equipped with electric cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. The living room has well-stocked book shelves, a wood burning stove and a colour TV. There is wifi throughout the house.

Beautiful well finished cottage with amazing views
The cottage was fantastic. It had great views, comfy beds, a very well equipped kitchen and a wonderfully cosy living area. What more could you want!
I would recommend this place to anyone. I hope I can stay here again when we next visit Skye.
Thanks - we were very glad that you enjoyed your holiday and were able to experience the sea-kayaking. Hope to welcome you back one day.
Perfect! Stunning views. Spotlessly clean. Everything you need for a comfortable stay. Log fire was wonderful and the cottage was warm and cosy. Helen was easy to communicate with and made every effort for us to enjoy our stay. None of us wanted to leave!
Well equipped cottage with a fantastic view
The cottage was beyond expectations, clean, well equipped, modernized and the “croft-feeling” was still there. The view from the living room is really fantastic. Really a place to go back to.
A little piece of heaven
We absolutely loved West Cottage. It has been refurbished to a very high standard whilst keeping the authentic “Croft” feel. The downstairs ensuite bedroom was perfect for my 92 year old Mum & the view from the sitting room is just breathtaking - even better when the weather’s good enough to enjoy the view sitting outside with a gin & tonic (which it was this week!)
We were so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your holiday so much and that the house worked out for you all.
Tranquil Splendour on Skye
West Cottage is a lovely house, quietly situated with superb views from large windows. You could relax all week just watching the scenery, but it's a great base to go exploring from too.
Locally, there are plenty of secrets to discover - including Kat Lenz's Pottery just down the hill; boutiques and great gifts around Armadale Pier and the really splendid Clan Donald Museum and picturesque grounds at Armadale Castle.
There's much more to do at Broadford and beyond, but before even going that far, drop in to An Crubh - the community café/shop/post office near Isleornsay - wonderful.
Our party of four enjoyed a great week, made better by an upturn in the weather. From a not-untypical Skye rainy start, we were treated to glorious sunny, breezy weather for the following four days - hot enough to know that we were each short of t-shirt - but with enough breeze every day to keep any midges at bay!
The whole experience of being at West Cottage is one any of us would easily repeat.
We were so pleased to hear that you had a lovely holiday and discovered the great things to do in Sleat. Hope you can come back soon.
FANTASTIC holiday - could not have asked for more!
Wow - West Cottage is amazing! We had a fantastic long weekend stay in Teangue, and we could not have asked for more. The house is fantastic and kitted out with everything you need - and more books than you could read in a few months! The view is spectacular, and we got some fantastic sunsrises, and moons over the water. We even got a visit from the local deer on our first night! Thank you for such a fantastic holiday, we would recommend this to everyone!
Thank you for your lovely comments - we are very pleased that you had such a good time.
West Cottage is situated in upper Teangue, a quiet and secluded part of the Sleat Peninsula, with views across the Sound of Sleat to Knoydart. Sleat is known as 'the garden of Skye' and is the perfect base to stay. Ideal for walking, photography, boating and various water sports or just watching the wildlife. There is a reasonably well stocked grocer in Ardvasar (5 miles) and a large Co-op in Broadford (14 miles). There are several good restaurants within a short drive: Toravaig House is just at the bottom of the hill, Hotel Eilean Iarmain at Isle Ornsay (5 miles) offers both restaurant dining and has an atmospheric bar serving pub food and the Michelin starred Kinloch Lodge lies between Teangue and Broadford.
