Private parking for 2 cars. No smoking. Please note: No children. There is an unfenced pond in the garden, 100 yards away.. Kelpie Cottage is special. It has been lovingly created by the owner from an old crofting byre, and has so much character and history that the owner, who lives adjacent, will be more than happy to tell you about if you are interested. It’s one of the last houses before reaching the iconic Point Neist Lighthouse. Situated in the very small crofting community of Waterstein in the far north-west of Skye, Kelpie Cottage overlooks Loch Mor and Waterstein Head beyond. To spend a week at Kelpie Cottage is a gift. Even though you’ll have Wi-Fi and TV, it’s an opportunity to switch off from the world, step back and enjoy the simple pleasures around the croft and local area.
The detached cottage has a simple layout all on one level. Upon entering through the large wooden door, the hallway leads off in three directions. To the right is the large kitchen/living/dining room, with more than enough space for two people to relax in, enjoy good food and watch the suddenly brilliantly simple world pass by out the windows. Back to the hallway, there is a large bathroom with a shower cubicle and freestanding bath, and at the opposite end of the house is the spacious master double bedroom. Outside the cottage, the garden (shared with the owner) has been beautifully landscaped and reminiscent of a cottage garden in southern England. A pleasant surprise considering it is the wild north-west of Skye.

Beyond the garden, the cottage sits within a working croft, grazed by sheep, which are kept for their wool. The owner uses the wool to create beautiful art pieces inspired by the local landscapes. Throughout the winter the owner offers crafting lessons free of charge if you’re staying in Kelpie Cottage. Through doing this and being at the croft you’ll learn so much. Lambing is also a popular time to book a week at Kelpie Cottage in March. You’ll be able to visit the lambing shed day or night to see 65 lambs being born – an experience you’ll cherish forever.

This is really the most spectacular location, and one you will want to keep returning to after visiting once. A short walk away is Point Neist Lighthouse, an excellent place to spot whales and dolphins, as well as resident sea eagles and otters. Kelpie Cottage overlooks the fresh water Loch Mor which is excellent for water sports, so you’d be welcome to bring along canoes and store them at the croft. And last but not least, from the cottage doorstep you will be able to see the Northern Lights throughout the winter, albeit when there’s no cloud cover.

Close to the cottage you have the larger, but still very small, crofting community of Glendale with cafés and a shop. A little further away is Dunvegan with its restaurants, more cafés and a castle. Coral Beach is close to Dunvegan and the Talisker Distillery is not too far away. You’ll visit for a week, and wish you had spent two at Kelpie Cottage. Beach 16 miles. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 10 miles.
Free WiFi

There is 1 step to property. There is an unfenced pond in the garden, 100 yards from the property. The large gardens are shared with the owners.
