About Georgina McNaught

We are renting my grandfather's old cottage on Skye where we have enjoyed family holidays for many years.

Georgina McNaught purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Georgina McNaught chose Scottish Highlands & Islands

Skye is beautiful and peaceful. This cottage used to belong to my grandfather and we came here for many many wonderful holidays.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is a perfect base for exploring Skye. It's peaceful and backs onto the hillside, but it's only ten minutes from Portree, where there are shops, restaurants and a lovely harbour.

We have recently put in a new kitchen with new appliances, utility room with washer and drier, there is a powerful shower, and also a log burning stove for cosy evenings in by the fire. There is a separate dining room for family meals and planning the next day's adventures with the help of our maps and guide books. Newly installed central heating system 2014.

There is a lovely mature enclosed garden, half an acre, perfect for relaxing in and taking in the views and for kids to play.

Whether you like walking, mountaineering or just relaxing in peace, Skye is a wonderful place to take a break.

Loved this place! It's a quiet rural area with a nice garden and awesome views. Great house with lots of room and a wood stove for cooler nights. Perfect for kids! Close to Portree and easy to get to. Georgia even left us a bottle of wine. Thanks!

Love it!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for three nights at this clean and nice cottage. It is so convenient and just within 10 minutes drive to Portree town centre and 5 mins drive to Co-Op supermarket. The cottage is facing a stunning view and the rental price is so reasonable. The host is so nice and has provided us very clear instruction how we can get the key into the house and detailed information/recommendations of where to go in Skye. Glad that we have picked this cottage and would love to stay there again !

Outstanding in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 5 nights at the Crofter's Cottage. We loved the peace and quiet, the beautiful views, and the comfort of the cottage. So nice to be away from the hustle and bustle of Portree, but only a 10 minute drive away. The Co-Op grocery store was only 5 minutes away and reached without having to drive into Portree. Very convenient. The cottage was very spacious, clean, and comfortable. The bed was superb! We slept like babies. Nice large walk-in shower with plenty of hot water and great water pressure. The kitchen was well-equipped. We prepared most of our meals there during our stay, and it was so nice to have a washer and dryer. The Isle of Skye is beautiful and we did many excellent hikes...the Quiraing, the Old Man of Storr, the Fairy Pools, Talisker Beach and the Coral Beach. If we are lucky to return one day, we will definitely stay at Crofter's Cottage. Oh yes, Georgina was a delight to communicate with...she responded promptly and graciously answered all our questions. Thanks Georgina. Mike and Susan (Dallas, Texas)
