Coastal holidays on the magical Isle of Skye
Whether in Broadford or Portree, our choice of holiday accommodation provides the perfect opportunity for celebrations with family and friends, romantic breaks away, or a whistle stop tour of the glorious Isle of Skye. Choose from Waterside Cottage (sleeps 8) or Waterside Cabin (sleeps 2) in Broadford, or Harbour House (sleeps 6) in Portree.
Each of our properties has been carefully chosen to make the most of the stunning coastal landscapes but to also be in walking distance of the local cafes, restaurants and shops.
About Waterside Cottage and Waterside Cabin
The cottage, (built in 1857), and the cabin (new in 2017), sit on Broadford Bay, one of the best birdwatching areas in the island. We also think it’s in a great location – close to all the restaurants, shops and cafes of Broadford; central to visit the whole of Skye and Lochalsh; yet when the tide is out you just need to head down the garden to discover wonderful birdlife, rockpools, beaches, and islands which you’ll usually have to yourself. At high tide the water comes within a few feet of the garden’s edge – ideal for launching that canoe. It’s a great area for kids and adults alike – wellie boots advised for splashing around on the shore – and if you have dogs (unfortunately we can only accept dogs in the cottage) a perfect place to let them run. If you’re lucky you may discover a fossil or two for which this part of the coast is renowned.
Private outdoor areas
The cottage and cabin share parking (2 parking spaces for the cottage and 1 for the cabin), but apart from that each property is private with its own outdoor area. The cottage has a garden which leads to the shore and the cabin has its own secluded patio and decking. From both locations you can gaze out over the bay and to the mountains beyond. Watch out for the herons which are resident at the water’s edge, and the ducks which usually parade through the grounds from spring to summer.
About Harbour House
Harbour House is located in one of the most sought-after locations in Portree and sits on the quay overlooking Portree Bay. Mixing contemporary design with carefully chosen individual items, the design mixes coastal and Scottish themes to create what we hope is a special place to stay.
Sit outside and watch the sunset or take a wander to visit the shops, cafes and some of the best restaurants in Skye. Harbour House is the perfect base to explore the north and west of Skye.
Stay all year round
Skye is an amazing place to visit year round, with every month having its own character and light. Whether you are a couple, a group of friends or travelling as a family, we hope you will enjoy the holiday accommodation that makes up Waterside Skye. We are sure you’ll have a lovely time on our magical island.
We look forward to welcoming you to Skye, David & Fiona
