This traditional croft cottage was stone built in circa 1910 and retains all its original weathered charm on the outside but has been internally modernised in 2016. The cottage is detached and sits in a rural setting, with lovely views over the salmon river Snizort. Situated only 5 miles from the principle town of Portree, the cottage is ideal for touring around the island.
With modern furnishings throughout, a cosy livingroom, fully equiped kitchen (with dining table), wetroom with walk in shower.. Two double bedrooms and one single. Private parking. Linen and towels provided.
