Tour Scotland Greshornish Skye Holiday Cottage


Tour Scotland Greshornish Skye Holiday Cottage. With splendid views of the Trotternish Hills and Loch Greshornish, this beautifully renovated detached stone cottage enjoys the most peaceful location in total seclusion, on one of Skye’s most picturesque peninsulas. D├ęcor and furnishings are of a very good standard with great attention paid to detail. Every room looks down to the Loch, where in summer the dawn breaks early and the moon throws a silver path across the water. Skye is the ramblers’ paradise where the Cuillin Mountains can be tackled by climbers or easy walks taken along cliffs and foreshore. The nearby Trotternish peninsula offers some unusual rock formations, where a combination of volcanic basalt and softer sandstone and limestone has caused spectacular landslips and sheer cliffs. The island, renowned for its excellent seafood and wonderful restaurants, has something to suit everyone. Visit Dunvegan Castle, Neist Point Lighthouse and the old fishing village at Stein. The "Blackhouse" Museum at Duntulm shows how islanders lived in thatched stone houses; the Aros Centre in Portree shows how the sea eagle has been reintroduced on Skye. Ferry trips can be made to the Outer Hebrides or a boat trip into the Cuillins. Tour the island by car or just walk out of the back door for 10 minutes for a glorious view of the Ascrib islands. The setting has it all, inviting relaxation and discovery with glimpses of the wildlife, birdlife and sealife. Pubs 4 miles.
