We had a wonderful time,and such a lovely house in an amazing setting,and simply being able to walk down to the Bay whenever we wanted was amazing

We were treated to a fantastic sunset on our last evening. One week is not enough, and hope to come back to The Seashell ASAP.A little slice of heaven

Fantastic cottage in a beautiful, peacful location

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing time on Skye and Seashell cottage is the perfect base to explore the island. The cottage is set in a beautiful location with a short stroll leading down to a little bay which is a great place for an early evening walk. The cottage has everything you will need for a relaxing holiday and has excellent décor with stunning views. We can not wait to return to Skye and we will also return to Seashell cottage. Thank you

Magical place

  • 5 of 5

Both the cottage and location provided everything we could dream of. We had some high quality family time in Seashell. Kids loved the beach, birdwatching and charming evenings by the fire. I loved the silence and an absolute comfort of the cottage. We felt safe and looked after:) and will definitely recommend this place to our friends. Thank you Nevelee xxx Milena
