Set in a stunning location close to the sea, our cottages are located next to what was once the Macdonald family’s hunting lodge and only a five minute walk away from the beautiful sandy Staffin Bay beach. There is also a slipway for launching boats and the area is an ideal base for hill walking. The Old Man of Storr, Quiraing mountains, Brothers Point, Rubha Hunish and Trotternish Ridge are all within easy access of the cottages.
Nestled beneath the Quiraing mountains our beautifully decorated and tastefully furnished cottages boast stunning views, from ‘Tigh Shomairle’ there are panoramic views northwards across Staffin Bay to the Trotternish Ridge and eastwards to Staffin Island and beyond. Most weekends there is traditional music to be enjoyed at Duntulm Hotel, Totternish. If you are looking for a ceilidh watch the local press, there is always one somewhere on the island.
Our holiday homes offer an ideal gathering place for all the family as the four cottages sleep a total of 18 adults and 2 children. A wonderful retreat for time out together.
