Our home

We have two cottagesthat are available for exchange, on our croft (small holding) in the north west of Skye - an island off the northwest coast of Scotland. Both cottages are stone built and have been renovated to a high standard. They are snug, warm, safe and peaceful. The cottages provide a great base for visiting the islands' many attractions, walking, climbing, birdwatching, mountain biking, kayaking and of course - hearing traditional music. So that you can make the most of your time on Skye we provide detailed guides on places to visit, things to do, mountains to climb and places to eat. The cottages are available on a free home exchange basis any time during the year except July, August, Christmas or Hogmanay.Simultaneous exchange is not necessary.
