Amber's Cottage

Sleeps 4
3 dogs
2 bedrooms

Staffin 1 mile. This pretty detached, whitewashed stone cottage is in a private, elevated setting, one mile from the village of Staffin, on the Isle of Skye. Boasting breathtaking sea and mountain views, this lovely single-storey cottage is situated within walking distance of village shops, plenty of places to eat close-by, a sandy beach and a community centre with a licensed restaurant. This cosy cottage is ideal for a small family or group of friends who want to soak up the wonderful views from their own wee cottage, as well as being close to some exceptional mountain walks. Amber's Cottage has two bedrooms, a shower room and a comfortable sitting room with an electric stove-effect fire, along with a spacious fitted kitchen/diner and a large porch, where you can store walking boots and coats after a day out and about exploring this wonderful island. The impressive Quiraing Mountains form a dramatic backdrop to the village of Staffin, where you can spot eagles soaring overhead. Just a short walk from the cottage takes you down to the shoreline and the sandy beach, from where will see some remarkable footprints left by dinosaurs that walked across the sand here some 165 million years ago! The Isle of Skye has so much to offer visitors and the capital town of Portree provides a great selection of lively pubs, shops and restaurants. The world famous Dunvegan Castle is also well worth a visit, as is Skye's only Distillery at Talisker. For the wildlife spotter, whether on land, in the sea or in the air, there's never a dull moment with eagles, whales, deer and otters to spot in the area. Your charming cottage is a welcome base after a day’s walking or sightseeing.

Reviews

“Excellent location overlooking the beach with fantastic panoramic views. Ambers cottage is cosy, very clean and well equipped. Comfortable beds gave us a perfect night's sleep after days out sightseeing. Pet friendly with enclosed gardens (perfect for our pug). This is the 4th time we have stayed at Ambers cottage and it certainly won't be the last. A perfect retreat to escape and forget the current worries of the world. Would recommend anyone to choose to stay here.”

“One of the best holidays we have ever had! The cottage was clean, spacious and had everything we needed. Once our day exploring Skye was done, we found the cottage a home from home and very relaxing. The views were awe inspiring, with the Quirang to the front and an amazing view to the hills at the rear. We found Staffin an ideal place to stay as there were a couple of small shops for our essentials and only a 25 minute drive to Portree for excellent eateries and larger stores. Both of us can't wait to go back!”

“As new visitors to Skye, we were a little apprehensive about what to expect. No need! The cottage is a lovely little home from home, very private and comfortable. All the amenities you would expect, including comfortable beds and well equipped kitchen. Small shop nearby and supermarket at Portree. The most amazing thing was the wildlife , we actually watched a golden eagle settle on a garden fencepost at the back of the cottage.Skye itself is awesome: very,very beautiful. Sea and mountain views make you feel alive, even at this time of year.”

“Not our first visit, have been many times. Cottage is lovely and clean, centrally heated so warm and toasty in winter, dog friendly, well equipped with everything you need, the silence is amazing, absolutely loved the peace and quiet, beautiful walks for the dog, local facilities are good although opening times are restrictive but if you want 24 hour supermarkets, pub crawls and nightclubs go to a big city!!!!!! This is an urban escape cottage, close to volcanic beach and Quarang, will definitely be back again.”

“We enjoyed a 2 week stay here. The cottage has an amazing view of the Quiraing ridge and the beach. An easy 1015 minute walk to the beach nearby, or a good walk down to the pier. The cottage was clean, tidy and suited all our needs. The owner and housekeeper were great at making sure we had all we needed. Shops nearby are limited and expensive. We did our big shop at Portree and then just topped up where needed nearby. Portree is about half an hour drive away. Had a fabulous stay here and would highly recommend to anyone looking to get away from it all. No wifi, and wifi is limited on the island, but detoxing is good every now and again!”
