    The Old Church occupies one half of a superb church conversion situated close to the sea on the idyllic peninsula of Waternish in north east Skye. With high ceilings, exposed stone walls and original church windows, this atmospheric and unusual holiday accommodation is a real gem. The main living room is exceptionally spacious, with a large wood-burning stove acting as a focal point as well as supplying the main heating system. A large solid wood dining table is set by the window that looks out across the bay. The generously proportioned farmhouse-style kitchen is modern and well equipped. Slatted wooden stairs lead up to an exposed stone wall landing, with two bedrooms and large modern family bathroom off. The main bedroom is exceptionally spacious and provides sleeping for up to four. The second bedroom is also of a generous size. This self-catering cottage is ideal for couples, families or groups wishing to explore this beautiful area of Skye. Basking sharks and seals are regularly spotted on fascinating boat trips, and you may catch sight of rare sea eagles which nest off the point. The Old Church is situated amidst some of the most beautiful and unspoilt scenery on the Isle of Skye. In the heart of the region known as Waternish, this wonderful backwater is famous for its stunning sunsets, magnificent seascapes, idyllic shoreline and pretty unspoilt hamlets, all untouched by time.

    Absolutely beautiful cottage!! Exceeded my expectations by far. We stayed there for a week from 31-08-19. When we arrived it was warm and welcoming, The cottage is spacious, spotlessly clean, has everything you need. There were so many nice thoughtful touches, the owners had clearly put thought and consideration to their guests needs and requirements. Will definitely be staying here again.

    Although I rated the local amenities as poor this was our choice and we picked it knowing full well that the cottage was remote

    An absolutely brilliant “get away from it all place”, the property is huge! There’s limited mobile phone coverage, depending on the provider (Vodafone and Virgin seemed ok). The Old Church has WiFi for internet access which is suitable. Stephen and Kim are fantastic hosts (live next door) and provided the starting essentials for our stay including coal and kindling for the fire, wine, dog chews, poo bags and dog bowls for our Woofie’s food etc; as the closest shop is in Dunvegan (about 10 miles away).

    The Old Church is a lovely place to stay near the sea. If you want to have a quiet relaxing break then we'd recommend here. We loved it. The weather was a mixture and on the way home we even had snow in the highlands which gave us some fantastic additional photos. Don't forget the milk as it's not 5 minutes down the road. Kim and Stephen have compiled a really useful guide in the hall which saved us wondering where to visit. The places didn't disappoint.
