Holiday Rental House
An original crofter's cottage updated for contemporary living. Situated in Camustianavaig, the house enjoys a rural location, yet is only five miles from Portree. The Crofter's House is small and stylish, the perfect size for a Highland retreat for two and has recently been completely renovated with minimal styling and calm spaces. The living room has a wood/peat-burning stove, small sofa, table and chairs. There is a flat screen 32' TV, a bluetooth BOSE portable speaker, a collection of DVDs and a small selection of recipe and design books. The bedroom has a king size bed and cotton bedding.

Outside, there is a shed with a wood store, shelter for two bikes and washing machine, tumble dryer, iron, ironing board and hoover. Prior to arrival, guests will receive instructions and there's a house book with contact details for the owner and housekeeper in case of emergency. Getting Around There is a bus from Camustianavaig to Portree in the morning, and one that returns in the evening. Otherwise, you'll need a car or bike - there is room to park a car in the garden and two bikes in the shed. Other Things to Note There is wireless internet in the house, but being on Skye, it's not very fast! Similarly, you can get mobile reception but you need to be standing in the kitchen to make/receive calls.More

Lovely wee cottage, basic but with everything you will need! We really enjoyed a very relaxed trip including the walk up the hill behind the cottage with spectacular views and we even saw an eagle.
