We had a beautiful week here and a lot of sun too! 'Skye is a petite paradise', I would love to stay here, but we will think fondly of Ascrib Cottage in France - thank you for the beautiful flowers too, it was lovely welcome"

Ascrib which sleeps 4, in 2 double rooms, was our family home, built on the family croft in the township of Kildonan (near Edinbane) with magnificent views over Loch Snizort to the Ascrib islands, Shiants and the Outer Hebrides beyond. This view whether drenched in summer sunset, or dusted with light winter snow is always captivating and frees your mind to relax. Facing south-east and north-west, sunrise and sunset are glorious. The croft land extends down to a rocky shore where you are welcome to wander. Dogs are welcome with well behaved owners!
It is a great base from which to easily explore all of North Skye. Situated by historical 'Dun Flashadder', the croft and cottage is only a few hundred metres off the A850. It's a 2 min drive from Edinbane, 20 min from both Portree or Dunvegan and neighbour to well known Waternish.
This deceptively spacious cottage has been split into two apartments. Entirely independent they each have dedicated access, parking and garden seating areas offering privacy to enjoy your holiday. A great idea for those that getaway together, but enjoy having some peace and quiet to themselves too.
Ascrib has a distinctive Highland character, and it's welcome that you really feel you're in a charismatic island home from home. Colourful and cosy, with 'minders of childhood freedom', local island heritage and some modern luxuries it is a refreshingly inviting holiday apartment.
The accommodation is on two floors as follows.
The upstairs gallery bedroom is wonderfully romantic, with a canopy bed in glorious colours with celtic inspired drapes. Candles, flowers, and quirky old photos endear this room as a very charming island retreat. Lie at night and enjoy the stars and moon in the skylight window. If you leave the blackout blind open, sunrise will greet you with a warm rosy good morning, while evening sunset engulfs you in a rich golden glow.
Downstairs the second bedroom has calmer colours reflecting sunshine, sea and sand. The bed is canopied and again with welcoming flowers and soft light this room is gently relaxing. Overlooking the front garden it faces east so sunrise again welcomes the day, if you choose not to draw the thick window drapes.
The bathroom with Jacuzzi and candles invites you to truly relax after an energetic day out or simply pamper yourself because you deserve it.
The living room has fabulous sea-views, easily enjoyed from the fireside whose cozy warm fire invites you to sit back and chill out! Characterful old island photos and inspiration from the outdoors will inspire your escape from every day life. TV, and DVD help those that still enjoy modcons of the 21st century.
The kitchen diner, open plan off the sitting room makes mealtime planning more sociable. The table is by the window again with views over the croft to the sea.
