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/pub and at nearby Armadale you will find the Armadale – Mallaig ferry and
a selection of craft shops, garage and shop with filling station as well as the famous Clan Donald Centre and Museum of the Isles. There are a range of hotels, bars and restaurants throughout
the Sleat area.
The larger village of Broadford is approx 15 miles away and here you
will find more local amenities including a supermarket, 24-hour filling station, bank, Post Office as well as 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.
