Waterside Cottage is a detached former crofting cottage and dates from 1857. Lovingly furnished with a mixture of contemporary furniture and antiques, Waterside is a home from home, and is a perfect location to enjoy time with friends and family.
The cottage is a great place for families and we welcome children. A high chair, booster seat and travel cot are all available on request.
We charge a small additional fee for up to two well-behaved dogs, but as some of our guests do have allergies, dogs must stay in the downstairs living areas only.
What we provide
In case of rainy days we provide a selection of games, DVDs and children’s toys in case of rainy days and a range of wellington boots so you can enjoy exploring the island and shore.
We also provide all towels, bed linen, cleaning materials, tea towels, dishwashing cloths, basic condiments and enough wood for a first night’s fire. There is an honesty box in the kitchen if you wish to buy further wood.
If you have any specific requests, do ask and we will do our best to supply it for you.
Read what some of our recent guests have said about Waterside.
Dream house! Really cosy and homey. In great location with a good view. The house itself was so lovely. I had a piano session with my brother and cooked dinner and breakfast with everything we needed. A perfect stay ! :). Wei Lin
“Fiona’s cottage is absolutely amazing. It’s the best airbnb we have stayed. Everything was very clean and organized, Fiona even left us a welcome box with lots of goods and instructions on it. The house is a dream! We played the piano, cooked and used the fireplace and it all made us feel like we were at home. I fell in love with Scotland and I will absolutely come back to her place.” Mariana
“The house is so cozy! The location is perfect. Everything very easy and comfortable. We were 7, and it was perfect for us. There is a supermarket less than 5min from the house by car. We really loved the house, and the Isle of Skye is simply breathtaking” Monica
“Fabulous accommodation tasteful and relaxing decor . Perfect !” Mairi
“Had a brilliant stay here, the view was amazing! good location, close to restaurants and shops and a good base for getting around the beautiful island.” Joanna
Adorable sea cottage! So many nice little touches from decor to the welcome basket. The house is spacious and well equipped. The yard has a quaint garden with beautiful sea views and there was no shortage of things to search for on the beach. We found cute shops and good restaurants. I highly recommend this cottage! Kathy
Absolutely fantastic! We fit five family members traveling together comfortably. Every one of us were sad that we hadn’t booked a longer stay so we could just enjoy the cottage more! Fiona really goes the extra mile to make you feel welcome. The welcome basket of goodies were so sweet and really came in handy. If you’ve got a big group and are looking for a place to stay on Skye, book Waterside Cottage! Carol
