About the property

Four Bedroom Luxury Cottage, with three Ensuite Bathrooms.

The layout of the house is ideal for large parties of up to eight, two families or a family plus Grandparents. The lounge has floor to ceiling windows to take advantage of the magnificent views. It also has a wood burning stove for the cooler winter evenings. On a clear day the outer Hebridean islands can be seen. The cottage is set in natural croft land and has stunning views. It is in a peaceful location, within a 10 minute walk to Milovaig Pier, a beach can be found at Glendale and with views towards the outer Hebrides.

Sleeps 8 + 1 cot (4 Bedrooms)

Pooltiel View provides the ideal cottage for relaxing and watching the ever changing vistas and is a super base for touring this mystical and historic island. Take a visit to Dunvegan Castle (the oldest inhabited castle in Scotland and seat of the Clan MacLeod) and a boat trip to see the seals basking on the rocks in Loch Dunvegan. Boat trips include a sea trip from Portree to see the varied sea and bird life including the sea eagles, glass-bottomed boat trips and a ferry trip from Uig to the Outer Isles of Lewis, Harris and Uist. No visit to the Isle of Skye is complete without a trip on the Bella Jane from Elgol to Scotland's most isolated Loch Coruisk. The island boasts some wonderful restaurants, the world famous 'Three Chimneys' has held 3 red rosettes for 9 years and has now been awarded its first Michelin star. The Kinloch Lodge Hotel has been awarded Skye's first Michelin star.

About Peter & Wendy

Having holidayed on Skye and the West coast of Scotland over the years, we decided to build a home on Skye, for ourselves and others to enjoy.

Peter & Wendy purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Peter & Wendy chose Scottish Highlands & Islands

The plot enjoys magnificent sea or rural views. It is quietly located, set in natural croft land with magnificent views of Loch Pooltiel, Dunvegan Head and on a clear day the Outer Hebridean Islands. The cottage was designed by a local architect and has been finished to a high standard.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage has been finished to a high standard boasting three en suite bathrooms and the main bathroom is adjacent to the fourth bedroom.

The lounge has floor to ceiling windows to take full advantage of the fantastic views. In the colder evenings it is very pleasant to sit in front of the wood burner whilst watching the ever changing vistas.

With no light pollution, at night, there are amazing starry skies.

It is possible to see the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights).

Highland cattle and sheep graze here in front of the cottage and there is plenty of wildlife to be seen.

For larger parties of up to 16 the neighbouring property (ref 732295 or ref 8033987 on Owners Direct) can also be booked.

Wonderful home, great for our group of 8, great beds and showers, BEAUTIFUL VIEW!!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our 4 days at your home! Everything worked great except the WIFI. We loved cooking meals together, planning day trips to Dunvegan, old man of Storr, Quaraing, Portree, and the Neist point lighthouse right down the road! The beauty of your isle of skye is unparalleled! What a perfect view to wake up to each day! Thank you!

Immaculate holiday home in idyllic location

  • 5 of 5

This holiday home is more than spacious and fully equipped with the most comfortable beds ever and endless hot water ! Our family of 5 had all the room we needed in the 4 bedrooms and I'm sure larger groups would be as happy. The views are spectacular (I saw a golden eagle from the back bedroom window !) Be warned the location is remote but the (hour long ??) drive from the bridge or ferry is totally worth it - we would return to this part of Skye without hesitation. Visits to Neist point and Dunvegan castle and Coral beach are easy drives. The Glendale village shop is the best tiny shop ever . Totally recommend this holiday home.

Fantastic property, great holiday.

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful property, exceptionally well maintained within a wonderful setting. We have stayed in various properties over the years​ but must say that this was the best equipped by far.

The location is stunning, overlooking the loch with waterfalls in the distance. The sheep entertained us every morning with their ritualistic procession along the road in front of the property.

We were a family of four adults and the accommodation more than met our needs. A large cottage or croft, with a beautiful kitchen which as I mentioned was well equipped with all modern conveniences. A lovely living room with a log fire which only took minutes to light, which was a welcome sight after being out walking all day. Not that lightning the fire was essential as the house was centrally heated and well insulated. The beds were very comfortable and I haven't slept so well for a long time.

The property provided the ideal base for us to explore the island. We visited out of season and therefore many of the local attractions were closed, but that didn't stop us as were out exploring every day and know that we had much more of the island to see. A good excuse for a return trip, something we definitely hope to do in the future. Cannot recommend highly enough!

Wonderful house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Pooltiel View 8th to 22nd October 2016.

Directions to house were simple and it was easy to find.

First impressions were good, but the house is fabulous and the views are great, especially the sheep and cows outside the front door.

The house is lovely and comfortable and the photos don't do it justice. It is very well equipped and can easily accommodate 8 people but still has loads of space.

The location is good and it's a nice walk either to the village of Glendale or to the lighthouse at Neist Point.

Visited Dunvegan Castle, Talisker Distillery and Portree and would recommend them all. Skye is absolutely stunning and we were really lucky with the weather, only had rain 2 days out of the 14.

The addition of the internet will be a big plus, I personally didn't miss it, but hubby and daughter did.

We would definitely return to this house and hopefully it will be sooner rather than later.

Great views, nice house, but could be "wow"

  • 3 of 5

The house is large and in a great location. It was clean and well equipped. There were a few maintenance issues, e.g. Light bulbs not working, loose toilet seats, some toilet seats missing their lids, door locks stiff and needing to be oiled. Also the sofas have seen better days. These are relatively minor issues but should really be attended to. For the price it would be good to have broadband, although the reception at Glendale hall was fine - but you do have to sit in the car park as the hall is locked when not in use.

Skye is the most important centre for Gaelic culture outside of the Western Isles, and almost half the population speak Gaelic fluently; the Gaelic College on Sleat (Skye's most southern tip) is the most important in Scotland. For a sample of the local culture, visitors to the island during mid July can experience the two-week long Skye and Lochalsh Festival - the Feis an Eilean. One of the most popular sights on Skye is the Cuillin ridge, made up of jagged snow-topped peaks, which can be seen from miles around, and are suitable for experienced walkers. The other main attraction on the island is the unusual rock formations of the Trotternish Peninsula, where the pillars and pinnacles are at their most dramatic in the Quiraing above Staffin Bay, on the east coast. Whilst on the island, the capital Portree is worth a visit, with its picturesque fishing harbour encircled with restaurants, and a mile or so out of town, visitors can also experience the Aros Centre.


10 minute walk to the pier with mackerel fishing at high tide.

A beach can be found at Glendale.

If you enjoy swimming outdoors then try Glenbrittle’s magical Faerie Pools, or try kayaking, sailing, fishing or scuba diving in the crystal clear water around

Skye's coastline.

There are numerous boat trips around Skye to see the wildlife and other islands.
