Beautiful traditional stone cottage in the North West of Skye, close to Neist Point, Dunvegan Castle and the world-renowned 3 Chimneys Restaurant with stunning views of Loch Pooltiel and the Outer Isles.
This is a cosy retreat (self-catering in the winter months, BnB from April - October), furnished to a high standard. The guest room has an en-suite bathroom with bath and shower and an ultra-comfortable king-size bed which also functions as two singles if required.

The space

The Byre has recently undergone extensive renovations turning it into a cosy space with everything you'd expect in a modern house. From November - March it is available as a self-catering cottage. I live in the property from April - October and serve breakfast which is included in the price.
The guest room with spacious en-suite bathroom (bath and shower) has an ultra comfortable, super king-size bed which functions also as two singles if required. All bed linen is 100% cotton for a truly restful sleep.
From your bed, you will enjoy beautiful views across Loch Pooltiel and the Outer Isles.

Lynn made us very welcome. The cottage had been beautifully restored and our room was lovely with an en suite bathroom. Lynn was great at suggesting places to eat & visit.

Beautiful home with the most amazing view and a lovely breakfast. She even helped us thinking of stuff to do when it rained. I would recommend it to everyone

This house and its location are spectacular. The views from the house are stunning. The house was completely remodeled to modern standard two years ago and the fit, finish and quality of all materials and workmanship are outstanding. Our breakfasts were very health and delicious. This is an excellent location to do day trips around the Isle of Skye.

We stayed at Lynn's place for 5 days and we had a great time. Skye was a bit busy when we were there, so we were happy to come back to the Byre which luckily was very quiet and relaxed! Lynn made home-made bread and jam for us which were delicious!

The Byre is a true Scottish gem! Set in the beautiful, quiet countryside of Skye, with gorgeous views, Lynn is a wonderful host. She provided us with fantastic recommendations for hikes, dinners, and also provided a delicious breakfast every morning complete with homemade bread, ginger rhubarb jam, local eggs, strawberries, granola and yogurt... a great way to start the day!! We loved our stay at the Byre!!!
