Welcome to Wildlife Croft Skye

On this beautiful croft on the Sleat Peninsula, Isle of Skye, we strive to maximise biodiversity as well as grow food. It's a constant juggling act and we are learning all the time. We are passionate about wildlife, regenerative agriculture and this amazing community we live in. We have big plans for the future, sharing what we have learned, and learning from others. We welcome guests to come and stay on the croft in our wonderfully secluded self-catering accommodation, Stonechat Bothy.
Stonechat Bothy sits snugly amongst native woodland and wildflower meadows providing privacy and a secluded haven for our guests.  Come and enjoy the sunrise and ever-changing skyscapes looking to Knoydart, and the imposing Ben Sgritheall. We strive to provide a home for native plants and wildlife here and you can enjoy it all with the floor-to-ceiling windows and the comfort of the huge sofa, or out on the patio on our comfortable, locally made garden furniture.  After the sun goes down dark skies can be enjoyed by the warmth of the fire pit. There are no roads, houses or streetlights visible from the Bothy and you will be completely secluded from the moment you arrive.  The sheltered orchard behind the Bothy is full of wildflowers and butterflies in Summer and has a picnic bench for our guests to use.
If the weather turns foul, or after a day out on the hills, Stonechat Bothy is the perfect place to restore and unwind, snuggled by the wood-burning stove.  Our remote location means that dark skies can be enjoyed in the winter months, excellent for stargazing with the possibility of seeing the Aurora Borealis.
We'll welcome you with our own jam and eggs from the croft, and there are herbs growing around the Bothy for guests to use in the kitchen.  If the weather is kind you can enjoy the locally made Adirondack outdoor seating, and if it's chilly outside there's a fire-pit to keep you warm.
Stonechat Bothy is the ideal self-catering choice for visitors to Skye, whether you are looking for outdoor adventure, beautiful scenery, Scottish wildlife, a romantic getaway, or simply to escape the hustle of modern life.
By choosing to stay at Stonechat Bothy you are helping us to make a positive environmental impact on our croft. Income from Stonechat Bothy enables us to carry out our croft projects such as tree planting, horticulture and habitat creation. We are also exploring how Wildlife Croft Skye can have a postive impact on our local community and are developing new projects in Social Crofting and Slow Tourism. We aim to scale up our growing efforts in the next few years. Watch this space!
