Welcome to Oystercatchers Holiday Cottage Licence Number HI-30081-F

Isle of Skye 4 star seaside holiday cottage, sleeping 6.

This beautiful seaside holiday cottage which sleeps up to 6 adults lies on the Isle of Skye – an island voted “4th best in the world” by National Geographic magazine.
We are delighted to be able to share it with you.

Oystercatchers was built in 1902, as a traditional 1½ storey croft house. It is located just 10 minutes from the Skye Bridge (or 20 minutes from the Mallaig-Armadale ferry if you’re coming ‘over the sea’.) Although convenient for main transport routes, it is well off the A87, so is a little oasis of peace and quiet. The gardens run down to the sea overlooking the Ardnish Peninsula and we have stunning uninterrupted views across Broadford Bay towards the Red Cuillins and the Isle of Scalpay, as well as over to the mainland near Applecross

The cottage can cater for up to 6 adults (with additionally, a travel cot available on request) and has been fully refurbished to a high standard. We have consistently exceeded VisitScotland Four Star status, as the cottage is amply equipped with modern electric heating, individually controlled in each room, a wood burning stove, 2 bath/shower rooms and free wireless Superfast broadband Internet access.

The Cottage currently has an EPC rating in Band D.

Bring your own boats or kayaks...

This is the perfect place to launch your own kayaks, canoes, SUPs or even sailing dinghies. The sea comes right up to the edge of our grounds at high water springs and when you arrive back you can simply pull your boats further up onto the garden.


Wildlife & Birdwatching

If you are interested in wildlife, Ardnish, the peninsula opposite, forms the Eastern edge of Broadford Bay. This is one of the best birding spots on Skye, regularly picking up migrants on brief stopovers as well as the odd scarce vagrant. Otters are sometimes seen at the bottom of the garden, further downstream, or on the opposite shore.

Ideally located Skye Holiday seaside cottage

Despite being only a 10-minute drive from Broadford and less than a mile from the main road, the cottage is accessed via a private road, so is very quiet, and the low light pollution makes the area ideal for star gazing. You will probably be woken only by the call of seabirds or geese as they pass overhead.

The bus stop for the main link to Portree and the Mainland, and a lovely restaurant are both within walking distance.

Holidays on Skye

Skye is connected to Scotland’s northwest coast by both the Skye Bridge and the Malaig – Armadale ferry and is the largest island in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland.

Skye is famous for its breathtaking scenery and landscapes and is a world class destination for walkers and climbers. ‘The Cuillin Range’ and ‘The Trotternish Ridge’ offer challenging climbs and interesting scrambles. The Cuillin Range comprises 12 Munros – peaks above 3000ft (914m).

Both Clan MacDonald and Clan MacLeod have their Clan Castles on the Island and are great places to visit.

You don’t have to go all the way to Norway to see the Aurora Borealis-Northern Lights. You may witness them in some parts of Skye in the winter months, particularly in wide open areas and sometimes even from the garden at Oystercatchers itself.
