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 Scottish Highlands & Islands

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.

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.
