Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Braeside Cottage is situated within the scenic crofting village of Staffin and is close to the spectacular rock formations of the Quiraing mountain. The property nestles within 5 acres of ground and has panoramic views over the bay.
The Isle of Skye is an island renowned for its magnificent scenery, spectacular sunsets and abundant wildlife, it also boasts historic interest with the great castles of the clans MacLeod and MacDonald. Skye resonates with the echoes of Flora MacDonald who in 1746, helped the then fugitive Bonnie Prince Charlie to safety, crossing from Uist to Skye before he boarded ship at Portree, never to return to Scotland.
There are fine walks for the energetic (and for the less so!), the best mountain scrambling in Scotland, kayaking, horse riding, cycling, the Talisker distillery and of course, salmon and trout fishing.
