Stonechat Bothy

Self Catering Cottage, Skye

Welcome to Wildlife Croft Skye

Stay at the tranquil and picturesque Stonechat Bothy in Drumfearn, on the Sleat peninsula in South Skye. Only 12 miles from the Skye Bridge and 11 miles from the Armadale Ferry, this secluded one bedroom, architect designed accommodation is an ideal location from which to explore the whole Isle of Skye and Lochalsh, or to simply enjoy a peaceful retreat.
Stonechat Bothy sits snugly amongst the planted indigenous trees (providing privacy and a secluded haven for guests, perfect for those on honeymoon) whilst still offering fantastic views over to Knoydart, and the imposing mountain, Ben Sgritheall. Wildlife is encouraged on the croft and an impressive number of birds and other wildlife have been recorded here.
If you are looking to explore the island the Bothy provides a selection of the best guidebooks, maps, and local information
Hosts Laura and Phil are always happy to recommend walks and activities as well and are keen to make sure that you make the most of your stay in the Inner Hebrides. If the weather turns foul, or after a day out on the hills, Stonechat Bothy is the perfect place to unwind. With a wood-burning stove this cosy getaway offers great facilities including a well equipped modern kitchen and bathroom. You can also enjoy luxurious home comforts such as Wifi, Sky TV and a selection of DVDs. The remote location means that dark skies can be enjoyed in the winter months, excellent for stargazing with the possibility of seeing the Aurora Borealis.
Stonechat Bothy is the ideal self-catering choice for visitors to Skye, whether you are looking for outdoor adventure, scenery, and wildlife - or a romantic getaway and escape from the hustle of modern life.
Your perfect wee home away from home.
