Springfields Cottage

Near Broadford, Isle of Skye


Springfields Cottage occupies a truly excellent position on the misty Isle of Skye, situated as it is just off the A87 Skye Bridge - Portree road, with fantastic views across Broadford Bay to the mountains beyond.

It is a most convenient base for exploring not just the island itself, but also for cutting back across the bridge (which is toll free) to explore the mainland on the other side, where Plockton, the Applecross peninsula and the glorious mountains of Torridon await exploration.

The house itself is a traditional, detached former croft house, standing in its own extensive gardens. Inside, it has been carefully refurbished to a high specification. The sitting room is invitingly arranged with corner seating and the TV and wood-burning stove in its exposed stone wall as the focal points.

The dining kitchen is stylish and modern, with a range cooker and central dining area. Having a separate utility room and a downstairs cloakroom makes the house practical as well as comfortable.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms, a double and a twin, that are well-furnished and quite spacious with coombed ceilings and lovely views to the sea from the dormer windows. A modern and stylish family bathroom with striking monochrome flooring completes the accommodation.

Electric storage heating and the wood-burning stove in the sitting room make it a cosy retreat in all weathers.

The sandy beach at Ashaig is within a ten minute walk of the cottage, while nearby Broadford (3 miles) offers a selection of shops, a supermarket, garage, hotels, restaurants, etc.

For special dining out, Lady Claire Macdonald's Kinloch Lodge and the Eilean Iarmain Hotel are just a short drive away down the Sleat peninsula. Other attractions at this end of the island include Armadale Castle Gardens. A drive over the hills brings you to Elgol, where a boat will take you across Loch Scavaig, right under the towering Black Cuillin. Don't forget your walking boots, for even if you don't feel up to tackling the mighty Cuillin, there are many other less taxing but equally enjoyable walks to undertake.

You are well placed for visiting the otter hide at Kylerhea, reached by another dramatic hill drive, with spectacular views of the mountains on the mainland. A little ferry plies back and forward in summer between Kylerhea and Glenelg.

There is a golf course at Sconser, about 20 miles up the coast and the area offers plenty of scope for sailing and sea and loch fishing too. The Red Skye restaurant is within a couple of minutes' walk of the cottage.
