About Ellen's Bothy

Hello, my name is Ellen Campbell and I am the owner of Ellen's Bothy. I have had the property since 2007 and it has been running as a holiday cottage since 2009. I have lived and worked on Skye for several years, but I am now based just outside Inverness. I come up to the cottage regularly to take some time out and enjoy the spectacular surroundings and the peace and quiet or I'm up to do some maintenance and see to the changeovers. I also have a lovely local lady who helps me look after the place. I love living in the Highlands and can't think of anywhere else I'd rather be!

Ellen's Bothy purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Ellen's Bothy chose Isle of Skye

I fell in love with Skye many years ago. The bothy is situated in a fantastic location, just 10 minutes from the shore and close to some of the most iconic sights on Skye including the Old Man of Storr and the Quiraing.

What makes this cottage unique

It is warm, cosy, peaceful and quiet.

Great wee bothy

  • 5 of 5

We loved the area and site of Ellen’s Bothy. The little personal touches were lovely - shortbread, tea, coffee, fire lighters etc.... puts other accommodations to shame. The location is maybe just off the main road but there is literally NO traffic at night time!

Enjoyed our walks down to the beach with the dogs - who weren’t just allowed - I got the impression they were welcome..... great wee extras with the biscuits and blankets for them too.

It’s a simple little place with no phone signal/WiFi which may not suit all - but we really enjoyed our stay! Thank you
