Property Description

A self-catering home from home on Waternish, the place to be on the Isle of Skye. From its elevated position over Lochbay, Auld Orwell overlooks the pretty fishing village of Stein & beyond, to unforgettable views and dramatic sunsets across the Minch to the Outer Isles of the Hebrides. The location is one of a handful of dark sky zones in the UK - perfect for aurora hunters and star gazing.

A unique, deceptively spacious, traditional stone cottage (a former croft) offering comfortable accommodation for 2 - 6 people. Recent sympathetic restoration has provided all the benefits of modern living whilst retaining the historic character of the original croft cottage.

The accommodation comprises one double bedroom, a twin room and a further bedroom which can be either double or twin. There are two bathrooms.

There is a large open plan sitting/dining room with comfortable sofa, chairs and window seats. There is an open fire. The kitchen is equipped with a gas oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher, washing-machine and a large fridge/freezer. All cooking utensils, crockery & glassware are provided. There is a separate hallway area for coats, wellies, shoes & muddy walking boots!

The rental includes full central heating, linen, towels, a complimentary basket of logs & kindling plus a bucket of coal for the open fire, satellite TV, DVD and wi-fi.

Outside, there is a lawn with table & chairs where you can sit and soak up the peace and watch stunning sunsets in the evenings.
