Southbay Cottage is set in a stunning location on the Sleat Peninsula towards the Southern end of Skye; an Ordnance Survey Map Viewpoint. This 150 year old, tastefully modernised, coastal Hebridean Cottage is just 200 yards from the shore in a quiet and secluded bay.

We have stayed in many cottages in the UK but this is the best yet. The view is stupendous and there is the sense of the owner wanting to share his dream rather than letting you be here on sufferance and this makes a great difference. Stuart and Marion

In its own 3 acre wild garden, the uninterrupted panoramic view across the Sound of Sleat to the mainland is magnificent. These coastal vistas offer spectacular views of Ben Sgritheall to the North, Knoydart and Mallaig to the East and Ardnamurchan to the South.

All the principal rooms including the three bedrooms, (with their own facilities) overlook the sea. Visitors can watch passing ships, observe abundant wildlife, (47 species of birds recently seen) and in the bay view seals, dolphins, and the occasional friendly otter.

Extremely well equipped and very comfortable, this spacious property is an ideal holiday retreat. Here visitors can relax in the ground floor observation room with its two ceiling to floor picture widows, and new for 2012 a door leading from the “Otter Bar” onto a 55 square metre roof terrace with glass balustrade and external bridge which connects a path down to the garden or up to a hillside viewpoint. More energetic visitors can enjoy beautiful coastal and hill walks from the front door.
