A really cosy little bothy, beautiful location. Everything you could ask for and more. Finding tea; coffee; milk and biscuits waiting for you upon arrival and a wood stove waiting to be lit was just what was needed after a days drive. Would thoroughly recommend to all.

We stayed in the bothy 17th to the 20th February.
Wow! It was amazing. Very clean, warm and welcoming. Dog friendly - even left treats for our JRT to enjoy after his long walks!
The log burner was a welcome addition after our adventures. Ellens bothy has everything you could need for a perfect self catering break. Thanks so much for a wonderful few days!

“Cosy, stylish and welcoming little cottage in beautiful location.”
Reviewed 14 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We really enjoyed our stay in Ellen's Bothy on Skye - great value, lovely, cosy and stylish accomodation and our greyhound was welcome too - a perfect combination. The location minutes from Staffin was ideally positioned for Skye's breathtaking scenery and vistas. And after a day of walking and climbing, it was great to come back to the bothy, light the woodburner and settle down on the comfy sofa and enjoy the video library! What a magical, mystical island - will definitely be back.
