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 Isle of Skye

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.

Perfect location and very spacious home

  • 5 of 5

We appreciated so many things about the Cozy Crofters Cottage - very well stocked modern kitchen, easy to use washer and dryer, super shower, safe private parking, comfortable beds, freedom of having the whole house with 2 bath, 3 private bedrooms and great easy to use instructions for TV, DVD and heating system. It was automatically set and did come on for those chilly nights and mornings. So glad we had 4 days on Skye- any less would be a mistake. LOVED the 3 Chimneys! And made it to the top of Old Man of Storr. Worst part ? Very poorly maintained road to Quiraing. Not to miss- Fairy Pools, sunset in Ord, and Elgol. Lucky us we had 4 perfect weather days too!

Fantastic family home to explore the Isle of Skye

  • 5 of 5

Quiet spot away from Skye traffic. Easy access to Portree and attractions on Northern Skye. Our family enjoyed this house very much. After a day of hiking and exploring, we could relax and enjoy the view out the front window. The owners were very helpful with local tips and communication was excellent. We would love to come back and spend more time here. And the sunset views from here were amazing!!

Great time!! everything you possibly need you have!

  • 5 of 5

A home away from home. Loads of space, even groups of 5 would not have an issue. The amenities are the best we have ever seen. dishwasher, oven, washing machine, dryer and more... everything you could possibly need. The views are great and the log burner makes for some great nights in front of the fire with a nice glass of wine. Close to portree for you groceries and next to some great walks.

Great stay on the Isle of Skye

  • 5 of 5

Although we didn't get the opportunity to meet Georgina, we had a wonderful stay in her cottage on the Isle of Skye. Plenty of room for our family of 5, and very comfortable. Conveniently located for many of the island highlights as well. Would certainly recommend it!
