Welcome to Wildlife Croft Skye
Stay at the tranquil 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, self-catering accommodation is the ideal location from which to explore Skye and Lochalsh, or simply enjoy a peaceful retreat. Stonechat Bothy sits snugly amongst native woodland and wildflower meadows on our small croft, providing privacy and a secluded haven for our guests (perfect for those on honeymoon) whilst still offering fantastic views over to Knoydart, and the imposing Ben Sgritheall. Wildlife is encouraged on the croft and an impressive number of birds and other wildlife have been recorded here. Your hosts Laura and Phil are always happy to recommend walks and activities and are keen to ensure 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 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.
