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.

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!

Clean, cosy and a beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

we enjoyed our stay here so much we wished we would have booked longer. the cottage is situated in the best location on Skye with all main attractions within easy reach. It was clean, welcoming and felt safe and cosy - for the first time on holiday we were actually content to chill out in our accommodation rather than galavant all the time!!

Fantastic stay in picturesque Skye

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this property whilst visiting Skye. A bottle of red wine was waiting for us on our arrival which was a wonderful touch.

The cottage is in a lovely area and close to the main road in skye. It’s also a 10 min drive from Portree where you can find everything you might need (e.g. groceries)

Inside is lovely and it was a very hygge visit.

Would definitely recommend this to family and friends and we would love to stay again if we fin ourselves in skye again.

Great Central Location to visit Isle of Skye

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay at Georgina's home. It was truly a Cosy Cottage with wine to greet us and a fire already prepped for us to strike a match to and watch some of the movies provided in the cottage. The washer and dryer were such a salvation for us since we ended up with dirty/wet clothes. It is also so convenient to town and grocery store. Would definitely stay here again. Thank you Georgina!
