8 Herbusta, Kilmuir, Isle Of Skye IV51 9YX

This charming, typical crofter's cottage is located in the pretty crofting hamlet of Kilmuir on the north western edge of Skye, with exceptional views across the Minch, towards the Outer Hebrides.


This cottage is well-equipped, comfortable & is ideal for any group to embrace the splendour of Skye. With enticing, panoramic views from each window on the first floor, guests will find two bedrooms & a bathroom.


The ground floor boasts a shower room, a pretty farmhouse-style kitchen with dining area & a relaxing lounge with a woodburner, ideal for cosy nights in.


A spacious garden lies to the front, a wonderful place to unwind, absorb the sights & the tranquil atmosphere after a hike along the coast & maybe even catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights.


Within easy walking distance is the Skye Museum Of Island Life, with traditional thatched cottages & artefacts offering a taste of life for the crofters in bygone days.


The area is rich in wildlife & rare birds, including majestic golden eagles which regularly soar overhead. This is a walker's delight, and as your cottage is ideally situated at the north end of the wild Trotternish Peninsula, close to the fabulous Quiraing, the sandy beach at Staffin & the Fairy Glen, there are plenty of options for exploring on foot.
