From March to end of October we can only accept bookings for a complete week, starting and ending on Saturdays.
Privately situated right on the seashore in a peaceful crofting township, Fossil Cottage is a cosy, quirky home from home. You couldn’t be closer to nature here. Watch the local otter playing and fishing right outside, wander along the shore to hunt for fossils or to enjoy the beautiful beach nearby, or just sit quietly relaxing in the silence and the soothing atmosphere of this comfortable old croft cottage.
Fossil Cottage has one double bedroom, a living-room with outstanding views of the sea right outside and spectacular sunsets. There is a fully-equipped open-plan kitchen, a shower-room with a great shower – and a location second to none. A smart TV and wi-fi are provided, so you can stay in touch, and Orange/EEE mobile reception is good. Heated by an environmentally-friendly heat pump, backed up by a stove for colder nights, this cottage is full of character, furnished and looked after with love and care by its local owners. The works of local artists hang on the walls and many fascinating old items add to the sense of history. The old stone walls have fossils in them.
The cottage is about two miles from the village of Broadford, which has several restaurants, pubs and a supermarket, as well as art galleries, a pottery, other craft shops and lots more. The nearest restaurant is just a few minutes’ walk away. You are well-placed here to explore all of the spectacular Isle of Skye and the near mainland.
Situated in the spacious grounds of the owners' property, the cottage is secluded and peaceful. There are lots of great walks starting straight from the door of the cottage as well as further afield, and the Isle of Skye is a delight to explore. The Cuillin mountains are a mecca for climbers and boat trips can be taken from several places, to spot sea eagles, whales, dolphins, seals, to go fishing or just to chill out and be amazed by Skye’s fabulous scenery. It’s best to come with a car, to make the most of this famous and spectacular island.
You will be welcomed personally by Fiona or Geoff, whose pleasure it is to make you feel at home and ensure that you have everything you need. If you need any help or information while you are here, we will be glad to help. But we will not intrude. We appreciate that you need your own space, and that is what we provide.
The Isle of Skye is one of the most special islands anywhere. Its dramatic scenery and fascinating geology, plus its wildlife and history, make it an essential place on any traveller's itinerary.
Local buses will take you to within a mile of the cottage. However, it's much better to come with a car. Skye is a large island and you'll be able to do much more if you can travel independently. Bike hire is is available in the village.
We don’t charge extra for cleaning, as we believe this is an essential service that should be included in our charges. You arrive at a cottage which has been cleaned and prepared for you with great attention to detail. We ask you to leave it that way too. Check in is from 4pm and departure is no later than 10am. Smoking is not permitted in the cottage or the garden. We're sorry that we can't accommodate pets or children.
