Please note: There is direct unfenced access to the beach and sea yards away.. Rowan House stands detached in the small community of Fiskavaig towards the north west end of the Isle of Skye. Furnished and equipped to a very high standard, it makes the perfect base for exploring or for relaxing in, with your every need catered for. From the full height glazing, you can look out and may be lucky enough to watch seals playing on the beach immediately in front of the house. Or you can try a spot of fishing from the beach, just yards away - the location of Rowan House is truly wonderful!

The Isle of Skye is one of the best known Scottish islands and is particularly famous for its spectacular scenery, dramatic history, diverse wildlife and its unspoilt beaches along with many fabulous restaurants, numerous walking, climbing and mountain biking routes, and a large range of watersports all within an easy drive. A visit to the Talisker Distillery and Visitor Centre, just a few miles from the house, is highly recommended. Here you can try the only single malt distilled on the island.

Take a trip up to the small village of Dunvegan where you can explore the castle and gardens, and from here you can also take a walk along the coastline to visit the Coral Beach, highly recommended whatever the weather. Portree, the island’s bustling capital, is well worth a visit with its lovely harbour and colourful houses, along with a good range of shops, pubs and great places to eat. There are also boat trips, a swimming pool, galleries and tea rooms.

To the north east you will find the Trotternish Peninsula, famous for its dramatic rock formations and cliffs, and to the southern end of the island you will enter the Sleat Peninsula known as ‘The Garden of Skye’. From here you can cross over the Skye Bridge and see some of the spectacular scenery and small villages dotted along this unspoilt coastline such as Plockton, Lochcarron and Applecross to name just a few. The area is an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise, but the less energetic can just sit back, relax and watch the ever-changing scenery from the comfort of a chair. Wonderful happy memories will be made whilst on holiday at Rowan House. Beach 5 yards. Shop and pub 3 miles, restaurant 13 miles.

Guest Comments

"Spectacular, tranquil location that looked even better in real life. This is a real gem, if you want to escape and enjoy some peace and quiet this is the location for you. Ideal place for the children, safe swimming in the sea Loch very close to the house and close by a lovely coastal path, for enjoyable evening walks."

"We simply cannot rate Rowan Cottage highly enough. A fabulous house in a beautiful setting. We chose the cottage knowing it was in a lovely quiet spot but not too far from the local shop by car and the Old Inn in Carbost which serves great food. The house has been meticulously built and planned and had everything and more for our week’s stay. We are missing it already and we will definitely be back! The Keough Family, Glasgow."

"Rowan House is superbly located, with a sense of relaxation from the moment you pull up on the drive. Skye is a magical island and the house is ideally located to explore all the peninsulas.Exceptionally well equipped, comfy beds and a wonderful open plan layout which makes the most of the location on the bay from every angle.Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend, indeed some friends who dropped by from mainland Scotland were also looking to book after seeing the house and location.Made for a wonderful holiday."

"Rowan House is a truly lovely property in a beautiful location. We had a great time there and really didn't want to leave!In the daytime the view out over the bay was a real tonic during these difficult times, and the evenings were equally relaxing with the log burner going, curled up on the sofa with a good book.The house is very well appointed, with beautiful decor, modern appliances and quality crockery, utensils and glassware. You can tell that the place is new and hopefully it stays this high-end for a long time.In Fiskavaig you are far enough away from the bustle around Talisker in Carbost, so it is lovely and quiet. Some people do occasionally walk their dogs around the bay in front of the house which makes for some nice people watching! Just be careful when opening the blinds in the morning that it might not be as private as you expected!Skye itself is amazing and we fell in love with the island. Rowan House was a great base to explore from with the Fairy Pools, Talisker Bay and the Cuillins all fairly close by. Portree is busy so it's nice not to be too close, though it is the gateway to the Trotternish Peninsula which is a stunning area.We thoroughly recommend this property and hope to come back one day."

"Really can’t recommend this cottage highly enough. It’s in a beautiful setting, wonderfully equipped with high-spec items, really well decorated and in a brilliant location for getting into the hills. Everything has been thought about down to provision of a slow cooker, and the whole place feels like it’s been really thought about and brought together with care and attention. The views across the bay are stunning and we had a fantastic week here. Will definitely be back."

Adele And Kev, September 2020

"Absolutely wonderful holiday. Somewhere to escape to and unwind. Fabulous house - could not fault anything about the place. We enjoyed it so much that my daughter and I have now booked again for next year."
