Stonechat Bothy

Self Catering Cottage, Skye

Welcome to Wildlife Croft Skye

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 on our young woodland croft 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 comfy garden furniture. Dark skies beside a cosy fire pit can also be enjoyed when the sun goes down .
No road or houses or streetlights are 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.
Your hosts Laura and Phil are always happy to recommend local 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.
