Ena and Angus welcome you to the Isle of Skye and Willowbank Cottage.
Willowbank Cottage is a luxury 2 bedroom dwelling house standing in its own grounds with scenic views of surrounding hills and sea lochs, set in a quiet and peaceful location. The cottage has been constructed and completed to the highest standard.
The cottage is within 5 minutes walk of Portee, a small town with a traditional town square. Portree has a lovely harbour set in a picturesque bay overlooked by a row of multi-coloured West Highland houses.
It has a wide choice of restaurants, as there is throughout the island. If you wish to eat out, Ena and Angus will be pleased to advise you on the establishment which provides your choice of food, such as the Bosville Hotel and the Cuillin Hills Hotel to name two.
Boating trips are always part of the community and Portree certainly caters for this service, providing trips to the islands of Raasay and Rona. To view the sea eagles by boat attracts great interest. There are various attractions throughout the season, displays by Portree Pipe Band, Highland Ceilidhs (traditional Highland concert), shows and concerts at the Aros Centre, the annual Agricultural Show and the August Highland Games. There are also games and shows in many of the other communities throughout Skye.
Portree is an excellent centre for touring the island. Ena and Angus will be pleased to advise and direct you to areas of interest and scenic beauty. Skye is an ideal area for the hill walker and the mountaineer, with the famous Cuillins as the main attraction, along with the spectacular Trotternish Ridge. There are various boat trips throughout the island. One of the most pleasurable is the cruise from the village of Elgol to Loch Coruisk which takes you into the heart of the Cuillins. Another trip which is very popular is a day trip on the Outer Isles Ferry to Uist and Harris.
There is a 9 hole golf course at the village of Sconser; though small at 9 holes it is well praised by those who use it.
We have wireless internet access.
The views from the house and garden are a special feature.
