Burnside Cottage is a lovely three bedroomed holiday home, situated in the Isle of Skye on the stunning Waternish pennisular.
With breathtaking sea views over Loch Bay and towards the Outer Hebrides Burnside Cottage is the perfect place to unwind, relax and truly get away from it all.
The cottage, orginally built in the 1880s, has recently been restored and has a contemporary feel. The front door leads into a spacious fully-equipped kitchen/dinning room with ample wooden worksurfaces, a gas hob and oven. There is also a microwave and dishwasher. A large wooden dining table seats six.
This leads into the cosy sitting room with leather sofas and a wood burning stove - ideal to while a way cold Scottish evenings. A large picture window gives views out towards the Loch. There is WI-FI, satellite TV and a Hi-fi system with docking for an iPod.
The holiday cottage has three bedrooms and sleeps up to six people. The Master, has a large king-size double bed and en-suite bathroom with stunning views towards the sea. There is also another twin/double bedroom and the third room is great for the kids as it has bunk beds. Both rooms have views towards Loch Bay.
The whole house is double glazed and centrally heated. The cottage is also equipped with a washing machine and tumble drier.
A small garden with a patio is an great spot to sit and enjoy the fantastic scenery.
Please note: The cottage is almost divided into 2 sides with the en-suite double bedroom being separated from the rest of the house by the kitchen and sitting room and out of earshot of the rest of the house. For families with very small children it would be best to sleep in the twin bedroom which is adjacent to the children´s room.

We are lucky enough to live on an almond farm on Mallorca. The island is lovely but gets incredibly hot and crowded in the summer so we decided to buy Burnside cottage as our "cold escape". The two places have one thing in common and that is their amazing scenery although at the cottage there are the stunning sunsets over the sea. The only problem is that the two places are so far away from each other - which can make life a little complicated at times.
