Portree, Isle of Skye, The Hebrides, Scotland
Hill Cottage is an extremely comfortable and homely self catering property built by local tradesmen to a very high standard in 2012 to a traditional Skye design. It sits on top of a hill in the small crofting township of Park Bernisdale, 9 miles from Portree, giving a fantastic panoramic view out over Loch Snizort towards Harris in the Outer Hebrides. Even when the weather is not so good, the light, the sky and the sea combine to give an ever changing, enthralling scene.
**Sorry but I do not allow pets in Hill Cottage**
The location is extremely private with absolutely no passing traffic. Peace and quiet are guaranteed.

About the neighbourhood
Portree is 9 miles from Hill Cottage and is a lovely big village/small town with a beautiful bay and harbour. The centre has a number of small shops selling local crafts and it is well worth taking a stroll amongst them.

How to get there
Airport: Inverness - www.hial.co.uk/inverness-airport : 170.0 km
The main route to Skye is the A82 over the bridge. The alternatives are the car ferry from Mallaig to Armadale www.calmac.co.uk or, if you have plenty time, the seasonal and very dramatic Glenelg car ferry to Kylerhea, giving a taste of how crossings were around 60 years ago. www.skyeferry.co.uk
