Ridge End Cottage, Portree


Superb location - mountains on one side and the sea (at a distan

Ridge End Cottage is wonderfully located at the northern tip of the Trotternish Peninsula on Skye. Fifteen minutes into Staffin for light shopping, newspapers, and excellent Internet services at Columba 1400. 40 minutes into Portree. The interior of the cottage is clean and very comfortable and the neighbors around the cottage are exceptionally friendly and helpful. The only (very slight) downside was that the cottage was not as well-equipped as many that we have rented. But we had an excellent two weeks there and hope to be able to return.


Peace, quiet and luxury rolled into one.

The service we received was fantastic.
The cottage had everything you would want and more, three beautiful bedrooms, a modern bathroom and kitchen living room. The whole cottage was everything we wanted. After a day walking we would go back light the fire and enjoy an evening in or go out to a local hotel to eat.
The location is fantastic if you want a quiet relaxed holiday in a beautiful location with dramatic landscapes. You do have to be prepared with your supplies but the cottage is well worth the effort.
This cottage has been put together with thought and attention to detail and is well worth a visit.

Cosy - Homely - Tranquil

We had a wonderful time at the cottage in Conista. The cottage was spacious modern with a cosy feel. The woodburning stove was a lovely bonus. We will be coming back very soon.

Wonderfully relaxing and a wonderful location.

A great location to simply relax time. The surroundings are breathtaking. The house is very modern and has everything you need. The service was excellent. A German television was not available. The fireplace is very noisy in high winds.

Location, location, location!

Superb location. Very high spec and very inviting with its log burner giving a cosy feel during the cold evenings.

Used this as a base for walking each day. Superb coastal walks nearby and close to the high peaks too. Great place, highly recomend it and had three lovely bedrooms.

A great place for getting away from it all

Absolutely loved the cottage, it was very modern and clean. A great place to totally unwind! We had a great 3 nights enjoying the stunning scenery. The cottage is lovely and warm which was appreciated during our stay in March. On the down side we felt that it was not quite finished. There was only 2 of us so we had ample space but felt that 6 people would struggle with the amount of seating in the living area. The cottage also does not have hanging space - the bedrooms are big so why not at least one wardrobe? A couple more chairs, a wardrobe, some coat hooks in the porch and a few more finishing touches (Bedside light in twin room?) would make the cottage perfect. Also be warned that the info says that the local Flodigarry Hotel is approx 2 miles - it is actually over 3 miles! Not much difference if you drive there but quite a lot more if you walk there and back!


Fantastic location!

We met some friends from Liverpool area here in the north of Skye. We didn't expect such a great location. And the "real"house is much better than the pictures on the homepage does show! But you should like remote areas! The next supermarket is far away - but what you get instead is a place of peace and tranquility. And overall the house is a good base for some beautiful hikes & places like the Old Man of Storr, the Quairing, coast & waterfalls!
One negative thing: The combined living/dining-room was a bit too small for 4 adults & 1 child.
Rating: We would definately come back!!

Perfect cottage in perfect location!

It was an extremely well equipped cottage with high specifications. We especially enjoyed the wood burning stove and the beautiful upstairs bedroom. Local people were very helpful and nice. The cottage was a lovely place to come home to after a day's adventures in Skye.

bucolic comfortable isolation

Recommended location to get away from it all. Extremely calm with great views. Access to Uig and Portree shops within 30mins. Well-presented cottage with all self-catering necessities for a family of four. Kids loved the wildlife,countryside,including basking sharks,otters,seals, dolphins all easily spotted within a week in summer. Hebrides clearly visible from upper bedroom.

Tranquil,Comfortable and utterly Relaxing!

Booking this holiday cottage was completed smoothly.
The Cottage was all i saw in the on line images and more!
The location is quiet with beautiful views especially from the dorma bedroom.Local people were welcoming and the shops and amenities
were fine.
I have too recommend the Little Teapot cafe in the local village the selection of Tea's from around the world and Home made cakes make this a must to enhance the whole relaxing experience of my stay on Skye.I will most certainly be returning to this cottage and area of stunning natural beauty!!

Richard Rainey

Cosy cottage with fantastic views!

Stayed at Ridge End Cottage for 2 weeks in August 2014. The house is situated in the North of Skye on the Trotternish Peninsula, very rural but stunningly beautiful. The house comprises of 2 ground floor bedrooms (one a double, the other with 2 singles), a ground floor shower and toilet, and a through lounge / kitchen / diner. On the first floor is a mezzanine bedroom with a double bed and a child's cot. There is a dishwasher, a washing machine, good sized oven and fridge freezer, television with Sky and wi fi connection. Also in the lounge is a woodburner, ideal if the weather is cool or damp. The house was immaculately clean and tidy, and our bed linen and towels were changed after the first week. The views from this cottage were amazing, the Quiraing from the back of the house, the Isles of Lewis and Harris from the front and all around grren fields, hills and sheep. The house is wonderfully placed for walking - the Quiraing, the Old Man of Storr, the dinosaur beach at Staffin, Duntulm Castle to name just a few. It also has easy access to the Skye Museum of Island Life, the Museum at Staffin and the Flora MacDonald monument. All in all we spent a fantastic fortnight in Ridge End and the Isle of Skye. Would suggest that although the house can accommodate 6 people, 4 may be a more comfortable number, but apart from that thoroughly recommended! Should also mention that Lorraine who looks after the house lives just along the road, and she's lovlely!


Fabulous location

I picked this cottage originally as it was near to the Quraing which is one of my favourite places on Skye.
The cottage is really well fitted out. We used the top mezzanine which allowed us to see the northern lights from the top windows over the top of the island.
There is a local shop a little drive away, but noting really else which means planning ahead and cooking at the cottage - the facilities are great for this so no issue!

There are some great features of the cottage - the woodburner is really good and the power shower is superb after a long day on the hills.

Overall, a great cottage in a very scenic location. Wish we'd stayed longer!!!


Perfect Retreat

A perfect retreat away from the hustle and bustle of life, Ridge End Cottage is immaculately clean and extremely welcoming. It really is a home from home set in stunning countryside and offers a great base from which to explore the Isle of Skye. We never return to places we've been before, as there is so much of the world to see; however, in this case we will be making an exception.


Very quiet and peaceful.

Mrs MacFarlane

Lovely accommodation in a fantastic spot.

Dr Park

A beautiful cottage in wonderful surroundings.

Mrs Ellis

The position beautiful surroundings and a delightful place for a peaceful away from it all break. Next time we will take 2 weeks.

Mrs Bailey

We had a wonderfully relaxing time at the cottage. Very cosy welcome. It was an ideal place to get away from it all. Would recommend it to anyone. Thanks very much :-)

Miss Jones

The property was fantastic - so fantastic we want to go again next year. It was perfect, it really should have 5 tourist board stars. The cottage is really well set out, very very clean and all appliances top quality. The bed was comfortable. The fire was set up and ready to be lit which helped and the information pack was great. In truth the cottage was warm and cosy so you did not need the fire, we just enjoyed sitting in front of it! We had a great holiday in a fantastic location in a beautiful cottage.
Thank you

Mrs Cadwallader

The remoteness of the location was a plus, and the countryside was great to walk in.

Mr Barker

The cottage was great and in a fantastic location.

Mr Hobbs

The tranquility and peacefulness of the location of the cottage. This was our first time on the Isle of Skye and we had amazing weather with not a 'midgie' in site. The most amazing walk we did was to the top of the Old Man of Storr no visitor to the island should miss this! The cottage was much better than we expected it was like something from a magazine, very modern comfortable and clean with everything you need. As it was April it was lambing season with a new lamb appearing in the flock every morning, our 11 yr old daughter was amazed.

Mrs McGinniss

Ridge End Cottage was delightful, very quiet, just what we wanted, a pleasure to stay there.

Mrs Leeds

The cottage is beautifully kitted out, really top-notch. We had a wonderful week walking and watching the wildlife as the location is superb with amazing views over to the Western Isles. We will be back!

Mr Dalgleish

Very high standard of cottage in nice, if somewhat remote, surroundings.

Mr Chapman

A really comfortable cottage which was very welcome at the end of a day in a rather wet Skye in July. A remote and peaceful retreat with great views. I really liked it, despite the weather!

Ms Young

A great location away from it all. A lovely modern property and a genuine delight to stay at. Recommended.

Mr Lines

It was very peaceful and quiet - exactly what I expected for a week in a cottage.

Ms Fuchs

The cottage was everything we had hoped for. It was spotless on our arrival and created an instant good impression. The central heating was very effective and kept us cosy in all weathers. The owners were particularly helpful when we had occasion to contact them. All in all, the perfect holiday let - we hope to be back before too long.

Mr Murdoch

The house was a real 'home from home'. It was well equipped and suited us especially since we had 2 small children running about. It was an extremely relaxing break and the cottage was fantastic. I couldn't fault the accommodation or the spectacular scenery and to top it off the weather was fabulous as well! Would definitely go back.

Mr Fox

This was our second visit to Ridge End Cottage and was every bit as enjoyable as the first time we stayed. This really is an excellent holiday cottage which we can whole heartedly recommend to anyone looking for a top class property in the north of Skye. A real 'home from home' (in our case, better than home!).

Mr Murdoch

Very clean, superb location, overall great!


Fantastic, remote winter break in beautiful rugged surroundings.

Mr Brown

The cottage was fantastic and the owner provided nice touches such as fresh flowers. Everything you needed was there including washing powder, dish washer tablets ect they had thought of everything!

Ms Gunn

Remote location with nice views. Nicely furnished. Nice walks around the area. Warm and cosy.

Mr Neary

A warm and cosy cottage and incredible scenery. Even though the cottage is isolated, which we prefer, you could still easily travel to visit elsewhere. Enjoyed the close encounters on the road with the numerous sheep and inquisitive highland cattle. Were even lucky enough to see a sea eagle at close quarters on one of the boat trips from Portree.

Mrs Shuttleworth

We loved the initial impact as you walked into the living room. The cottage has been decorated to a very good standard. We liked that the owners provided DVDs and games to play. The weather was excellent and we were able to make use of the small patio area around the back.

Mrs Flynn

Thought the property was well kitted out. A super kitchen with gas cooker, fridge freezer, dish washer and washing machine. A bathroom with a great shower that has multiple heads. Lovely master bedroom with staircase which leads up to it. We particularly like the wood burning stove, which we had on most nights.

Mr Blair

Property was modern, bright and airy - lovely contemporary design yet homely and warm. Woodburning stove was cosy and there was also a good central heating system if needed.

Mrs Palmer

Very comfortable and cosy cottage.

Miss McHugh

The cottage was perfect in every way, we couldn't have asked for any better. The cottage is in an ideal location with lovely views out every window and inside the cottage is very modern and very cosy.

Miss Maxwell

Loved the cottage, second year in a row and would recommend to anyone. Great relaxing break and had everything we required especially with the kids being there.

Mr Fox

Nice, quiet and perfect location between the Quirang and Duntulm. A newly build cottage with all the comforts of home.

Mr Van Der Krieken

The cottage and the surroundings were beautiful. A lot of thought had gone into the needs of holidaymakers to ensure they have a good stay. Whilst we went in June I believe the cottage would be just as welcoming at any time of year. The wood-burner made it even more homely.

Mrs Thulborn

The cottage met our expectations and more, everything provided was to a very high standard and the owners were extremely pleasant. Have recommended it to many people and we will definitely be back ourselves.

Miss Zdanowicz

We liked the location and the standard of property - new, clean and fresh, very relaxing and enjoyable.

Mr Robertson

A very fine and cosy cottage!

Mr Baekler

The cottage was superb, cosy and very relaxing.

Mr Rainey

Isolation, peace and quiet. It was magical.

Mr Boyle

Getting away from things and relaxing. The scenery of Conista and the Trotternish was spectacular. There are some amazing walks close to the cottage. We really didn't want to leave at the end of our week away. Although the weather was a little unpredicatble it didn't stop us doing the things we had intended to do.

Mr Thomson

Lovely place. Absolute peace with magnificent views. Highly recommended.

Mr Tan

Loved the Isle of Skye and the peace and tranquility of the cottage. Will return some time.

Mrs Henry

Fantastic setting if you like it quiet with great views. The house is well insulated and warm, and not on a through road, so no traffic.

Mr Joyce

Mr McDerment

The cottage was very remote, which is exactly what we wanted. The setting and views were superb. The cottage is very cosy, well decorated and furnished, and a real home from home. The Isle of Skye is beautiful with many activities and places to visit.

Mrs Penman

This is a lovely cottage in a magical part of the world. A wonderful place to escape the clutter of everyday existence and truly live! Thanks for sharing a beautiful home!

Mrs Farquhar

The layout of the house is really great. On the mezzanine we could see the stars and the northern lights through the top windows which was a great experience. The location is breathtaking, the house is very well equipped and has some great features such as the power shower and the woodburner.
Highly recommended

Mr Martin

This was a fantastic break in a fantastic location, the cottage was an easy distance from lots of Skye's best views and walks. The best thing was coming in from a long windy walk and stoking up the log burner, thanks for a lovely stay. I would definitely return.

Mr Smith

The property was wonderful. The view, especially from the mezzanine bedroom was stunning. The house was very cosy and had lots of hot water. My little two year old loved the stairs and the high chair. Would highly recommend the cottage and the location was excellent, especially for keen walkers and lovers of good coffee. The single track cafe is literally 2mins away with coffee and cake to die for.

Mrs Waldthausen

Amazing location and a very well equipped cottage with amazing views! A perfect place to forget about everything for a little while. The walks were stunning and the views breathtaking! Had a wonderful stay even though the weather was pretty horrible for most of the week.

Mrs Palmes

I loved the wilderness and the space offered in the Isle of Skye, I particularly enjoyed the views from the property which were so breath taking to wake up to. The property was so well maintained, it felt homely as soon as we arrived.

Mr Clougher

The cottage was well equipped with fantastic views from every window. We were lucky enough to have fantastic weather on Skye, and spent every day out walking and visiting the sights.
