We’ve been busy beavering away over the last couple of months renovating our cabin and it’s looking great! Sitting right beside the water’s edge it’s the perfect spot for birdwatching. And on a nice day all you need to do is open the french doors to let the outside in. Bijou and cosy it will the perfect space for two, and will be available for short stays for a two night minimum. We hope to have it up and running for June so keep a look out for the next update.
We receive so many requests for short stays that we have decided to make Waterside available for short stay accommodation all year round. We know that many people don’t have the luxury of being able to spend a full week or more on the Isle of Skye but are still looking for the convenience of self-catering accommodation rather than booking into a hotel or B&B. So rather than disappoint, Waterside Cottage is now available for short stays all year round. With changeover days being either a Monday, Wednesday or Friday that means you can book for a minimum of just
Looking for a cottage for two in Skye? From mid October until April we transform Waterside Cottage into a cosy and spacious pad for two.

We’re so pleased to hear that plans to create a new distillery on Raasay have been approved. Highland Council planners gave their backing to the project which will convert the Victorian Borodale House into a distillery, visitor centre and luxury accommodation in a move which will bring much needed income to this beautiful island. Vole and bat specialists had to be consulted as part of the planning discussion, but with approval granted R&B Distillers say construction work will start in April, with whisky in production from early 2017.

Kinloch Lodge, just ten minutes’ drive from the cottage is a long time favourite of ours. Mixing Highland tradition with real luxury it is always a treat to have their afternoon tea, a morning coffee or of course, to sample their fabulous dinner menu. We recommend the tasting menu with wine flight for a really special evening out. They have held their Michelin star with chef Marcello Tully for some years now and the food never fails to surprise. So it was great news back in September to hear that the fabulous Three Chimneys under chef Michael White had also
Skye is no stranger to Hollywood and has been used for many locations recently. Drawing on its stunning locations and atmospheric weather, it has featured on the opening of Prometheus and more recently has been the main filming location for Macbeth, directed by Justin Kernel. The film stars Michael Fassbender as the titular fearless warrior and Marion Cotillard as the tortured Lady Macbeth. What you won’t see on screen is just how hardy the actors were in getting the film made. Passing them several times at Sligachan in the rain.. in kilts.. you had to hand it to them for their
We know – January has been pretty cold and dark but then along comes a day which makes up for everything else. Earlier this week the clouds cleared, the sky was blue and the sun came out and this was the result, taken at 10am with the sun low on the horizon. Just beautiful. This was taken on the shore just in front of Waterside. You can see Beinn na Caillach in the background, a great short mountain walk if you’re feeling active with the reward of panoramic 360 views from the top on a good day. If you are
