We are to be found on the heavily indented West coast of Skye. Bracadale Holiday Cottages have a lovely position halfway up the island and just 45 minutes drive from the Skye Bridge. Visitors frequently praise this central location because they can explore the whole island, without too much driving.
The village of Struan is within walking distance. Just the other side of Struan there is a well-preserved Iron Age broch - very atmospheric. Just three miles away, at low tide, you can walk out to the delightful little island of Oronsay.
Our location means we are equidistant from two of Skye's major centres. Nine miles to the East, over the "hill road", is Skye's main town, Portree, with all of its shopping, hotels and dining facilities. Twenty minutes drive North and you reach Dunvegan with its world-famous castle, seat of the Clan Macleod for nearly 800 years. Apart from tours of the castle and grounds, boat trips to the seal colonies are a great attraction here.
The Cuillins are a short drive South, as are Armadale Castle and Talisker distillery and visitor centre. Head North for Uig if you would like a ferry sailing, for a day over on Lewis and Harris, the Outer Hebrides.
There are, of course, endless coastal and hill walks and stunning vistas within the immediate area of the cottages. Excursions by car, foot or bike are on your doorstep. Golden eagles patrol the skies above Bracadale. Struan Jetty is only a couple of hundred metres away for launching kayaks and small boats.
If you like fine dining, there is a three-rosette restaurant ten minutes away at Ullinish Lodge (lovely for luxurious afternoon tea as well). And of course the world-renowned Three Chimneys restaurant is just beyond Dunvegan.
So whether you're: hill-walking, Munro-bagging, bird-watching, fishing, exploring abandoned villages or just chilling out on this beautiful island of dramatic coastal and mountain scenery - you will find our cottages an ideal choice from which to enjoy the remarkable wild landscape of Skye.
