Fabulous week at this idyllic retreat. The accommodation is excellent (panoramic views from inside too!) with great touches (logs for fire, flowers, cakes...) to make it a wonderful bolt hole to explore a magical island. Veronica and Michael were fabulous hosts.

How to get there
Railway: Kyle of Lochalsh: 10.0 km
If you are driving & have the time it is well worth taking the scenic & last remaining turntable car ferry from Glenelg to Kylerhea on Skye<BR>It is better to come to Skye via the bridge rather than with the Mallaig Ferry which takes much longer & liable to make you miss the boat to Scalpay.<BR><BR>The boat ride to Scalpay takes approx 20minutes & is included in the rental. Full waterproofs & Wellington boots are recommended.
