Ardvasar, Isle of Skye
"An intimate and very comfortable cottage
for romantic holidays for two"
Enjoy a relaxing stay in Oak Tree Cottage a traditional stone built, beautifully refurbished 3 star self-catering holiday cottage,
located on the Sleat Peninsula.
The cottage has a real WOOD BURNING STOVE as well as its own picturesque garden with private parking area. Within
walking distance enjoy fabulous views out over the Sound of Sleat to the Scottish mainland and the Inner Hebridean islands
of Eigg and Rhum.
The mystical and stunning Isle of Skye or in Gaelic Eilean Sgiathanach is a land of stark volcanic rock formation and breathtaking
scenery. The Cuillin Mountains
form some of the oldest mountains in Europe and are considered
to be the most dramatic mountain range in Britain. Skye is
an idyllic location to explore the romantic Hebridean Isles and their turbulent Celt, Norse and Scottish heritage all of which
have influenced the evolution of this magical region.
Oak Tree Cottage is situated in the village of Ardvasar on the Sleat Peninsula of Southern Skye, known as 'The Garden of Skye', due to it's abundance of trees and greenery
and wonderful woodland gardens. The area is a riot of colour all year round, with striking carpets of bluebells in May and
glorious rhododendrons in June and a myriad of wild flowers decorating the countryside throughout the seasons. There are many
beautiful woodland and shoreline walks in the area, where you may catch a glimpse of local wildlife, including golden eagles,
red deer, seals
and otters. The village benefits from
a hotel and local shop. At nearby Armadale, approx 1 mile away, you will find the Armadale – Mallaig ferry and a selection of craft shops, restaurants, filling station and the Island's famous Clan Donald Centre and Museum
of the Isles. You can also find a range of hotels, bars and restaurants throughout the Sleat area. The village of Broadford is approx 15 miles away and here you will find a good range of local amenities including
hospital, dentists, 24-hour filling station, bank, Post Office, a selection of hotels, bars and restaurants.
Skye is the biggest island in the Inner Hebrides and travelling there has been made much more convenient by the introduction of the modern toll free
road bridge connecting the island to the main land at the Kyle of Lochalsh. However for those looking for a more traditional crossing the ferry from
Mallaig is still a most enjoyable option.
Yes, you can still sail over the sea to Skye!
Oak Tree Cottage is just a 5 minute drive from the ferry to
Mallaig and the Scottish mainland.
