    Dining area: With slate floor.

    Oil central heating, electricity, bed linen, towels and Wi-Fi included. Initial logs for wood burner included.

    Small garden with sitting-out area and garden furniture. Private parking for 1 car. No smoking.

    The Old Dye House is set in a quiet location overlooking the sea, and on good days you can see the Outer Hebrides far in the distance. This detached cottage for two, adjacent to the owner’s home, is spacious and warm and has been sympathetically renovated and furnished to a very good standard. Beautifully presented with tasteful use of colours and textures, The Old Dye House makes the perfect base from which to explore the lovely Isle of Skye and the west coast.

    Waternish itself is home to several art galleries, a family run sheepskin tannery, which gives guided tours, the oldest inn on Skye and a Michelin star restaurant. There are also plenty of walks available nearby for all abilities and the best sunsets on the island. Set towards the northern end of the island, all the attaractions Skye has to offer are within easy driving distance. Take a trip to Dunvegan Castle and gardens, and after enjoying that you can take a walk along the shoreline to Coral Beach – just stunning! Visit Portree, the island’s capital, with its wide variety of shops, art galleries, craft shops and some great places to eat and drink. A trip from Portree to the Trotternish Peninsula is well recommended. You will see dramatic scenery, and one of the most famous walks, the Old Man of Storr, which is a large pinnacle of rock and can be seen for many miles. Part of the Trotternish Ridge was created by a massive ancient landslide leaving probably what is one of the most photographed landscapes in the world.

    To the southern end of the island you will find the Sleat Peninsula, known as the ‘Garden of Skye’, where you can visit Armadale Castle along with some amazing places to eat. There is a large variety of outdoor pursuits available including hill and mountain climbing in the famous Cuillins, sea trips, fishing, kayaking, sailing and mountain biking. Take a stroll along some of the many quiet and unspoilt beaches which surround the rugged coastline. For the less energetic, sit back and relax in front of the wood burner and enjoy the everchanging vistas. Shop 21 miles, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.

    My husband and I (and our two pugs) had a wonderful week at The Old Dye House. The cottage has everything you could possibly need. The views (from every window) are spectacular and in the evenings we enjoyed curling up in front of the log burner with a glass of wine.

    Lovely little cottage for a peaceful getaway. Two minutes from the loch side and with beautiful views from the living room windows towards Dunvegan Head and Ardmore Point respectively. The kind and helpful owner lives close to hand.

    Lovely well refurbished property in a beautiful location. Everything catered for in the cottage and a very pleasant owner . I have a couple of issues , whilst we were there the weather was unusually cold and the heating system isn’t adequate to keep you warm , kindly the owner lent us a free standing heater, the other point is the ceiling height in the bedroom which is extremely low and quite claustrophobic ( maybe I am being too fussy but being over 6 feet tall I got fed up of banging my head) . Also the flue on the log burner bangs all night when windy which it is most of the time . Would I stop there again? Probably not.

    We have just returned from a wonderful week in the Isle of Skye. The Old Dye House was beautifully appointed with stylish and comfortable accommodation. Everything was provided and Judi was very welcoming. The cottage is just a short walk from the shore, where we saw otters and seals. The cottage is on the beautiful Waternish peninsula and has the most wonderful views over the sea to the Outer Hebrides. The sunsets were just stunning. We would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage. Thank you Judi for a wonderful stay.
