2 double beds, 2 dogs
Ascrib self catering cottage apartment is a charming island retreat, which invites you to take off your boots, wriggle your toes, ease your weary feet.

With Jacuzzi, canopy beds, fireside sunsets, candles and flowers, an iconic island welcome awaits you. Dogs are welcome with well-behaved owners!
Enjoy our family home on the croft in the township of Kildonan (near Edinbane), with magnificent views over Loch Snizort to the Ascrib Islands and the Outer Hebrides beyond. Adjacent to historical ‘Dun Flashadder‘, the view whether drenched in summer sunset, or dusted with light winter snow, is peaceful and captivating, freeing your mind to wander and relax. Facing south-east and north-west, sunrise and sunset are glorious, dark skies mesmerising and auroras awesome when they grace our skies. The croft land extends down to a rocky shore where you are welcome to explore, fish, watch wildlife or ponder reflections.
It is a great base from which to discover Skye. The cottage is only a few hundred metres off the A850, 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. It also offers an excellent solution for families that getaway together but enjoy having some peace and quiet to themselves too.
Ascrib, a charismatic island home from home, has a distinctive Highland character. A subtle fusion of colour imbues the impartment where the contemporary tones of the Isle of Skye Paint Company palette, evocative of the drama and spirit of Skye’s land and seascapes, combines beautifully with the traditional hand dyed colour of pure wool Harris Tweed textile furnishings. The inclusion of heritage through black and white family photographs, Celtic pattern in bed drapes, and wee minders of the freedom of childhood days, and some modern conveniences, creates a refreshingly cosy, timeless and inviting holiday apartment. Flowers and candles offers a welcome akin to the spirit of coming home.
