About the Owner

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!

Cosy, well-appointed, fabulous scenery

The Bothy is the epitome of cosiness: small, but well-appointed. The bothy is equipped with everything you need to enjoy a stay in peace and quiet.

Cosy house in good walking location

  • 4 of 5

Ellens' bothy is cosy and full of nice small objects. Trotternish peninsula has many opportunities for great walks and Portree and Dunvegan or the Cuillins are half an hour. one hour by car, respectively.

A great cottage in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Ellen's bothy. It was comfortable and the stove easily made it very cosy in the evenings. The kitchen is well equiped and the bothy was a great place to return to after a day exploring Skye. We really enjoyed being able to walk from the cottage to the Quiraing and to the beach.

Location

From the Owner

I fell in love with Skye many years ago and was spending all my free time there. 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.

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

Staffin Bay is a 10 minute walk from the cottage. The Quiraing and Trotternish ridge is accessible on foot also and is within a 20 minute walk.

Travel:

A car is recommended. The nearest airport is Inverness. Nearest train station is Kyle of Lochalsh which is an hour's drive away. Car hire is available at Inverness airport. There is a bus service from Inverness to Portree with a limited connecting service to the cottage. Driving time is 3 hours from Inverness and one hour once on the island. There is a bridge to Skye or there is a small ferry operating during the summer months from Glenelg which is highly scenic.

Distances:

The main town of Portree is 17 miles away and Uig (ferry terminal to the Western Isles) is 9 miles away via the Quiraing road. The spectacular Old Man of Storr is a 15 min drive back the road to Portree. The village of Dunvegan with it's castle and Coral Beach is approx one hour's drive. The Three Chimneys Restaurant is also approx one hour's drive.

Further Details:

The local shop is 1/2 mile away and supplies all necessary items including petrol/diesel and fuel for the multi fuel stove. The nearest pub is 3km away at the Flodigarry Country House Hotel. The nearest cash point is in Uig at the Post office/shop there (9 miles). There is a hospital in Portree.
