It can be hard to find peace and quiet where you normally live, but the Isle of Skye makes this search a piece of cake, especially with this tiny house in the beautiful village of Torrin. You’ll be treated with amazing views of Blaven and the Red Cuillins, and the only noises that you’ll hear in the spot are from the birds and the winds. The main village of Broadford is seven miles away in case you want to pay a visit to cafés, restaurants, bars and other fun locations, and parking on the premises is free so that you can save money for these activities.

Indulge in a tranquil stay at this cottage, where you will spend the next few days enjoying the views of the sea. The place is simple and small yet comfortable and spacious. There are three cozy beds available to accommodate up to four people. You can also relax by the wood burner that guarantees heat and hot water. You will be provided with basics such as milk, oatmeal, tea, and coffee throughout your stay. While relaxing, look outside your window because if you are lucky, you may be able to spot some seals, gannets, and gulls.

Couples looking for somewhere new to go to for a romantic getaway, as well as solo travelers who need somewhere quiet for their next long weekend or vacation, should stay at this house’s private room, which has room for two guests. Visitors will be treated with great views of the Ben Tianavaig and is also close to the Cuillin, which gives you a huge source of adventure for those who love to tour through nature. Portree is a 5- to 10-minute drive away in case you want to eat out, but the kitchen has everything you need to make your own meals.

Those looking for a vacation rental for a cozier, more comfortable version of their homes should consider staying at this guesthouse. Ceol Na Mara is situated on the shoreline of Broadford Bay, which puts you right next to the beach so that you can do some surfing or work on your tan. While this spot has room for two, it has enough space inside to make each guest as comfortable as possible. The kitchen is fully equipped so that you can make your own meals, and pets are welcome in case you want to bring a cat or dog along for the adventure.

Some vacation rentals are best suited for one or two people who only need a certain amount of space and a quiet area to stay in. If that’s what you’re looking for, then we recommend this home’s double room for two. Tea and coffee are available in the house so that you can start the day with the energy needed for a fun time, and visitors will have their own entrance at the back of the property. Portree Village is only a 10-minute walk away, which lets you get a little exercise before you enjoy the best that the town’s restaurants and bars have to offer.

In case you’re tired of staying at hotels and houses on your time off and need a new setting, there’s always this boathouse, which treats its visitors with amazing views of the water to take photos of during the sunrise and sunset. The water outside will take you to a variety of locations, depending on what you want to do, whether it’s hiking in Raasay, take photos of awesome rock formations on the Storr, or enjoy nature in Trotternish. Access to the beach is also available at this spot, and the indoor fireplace will keep you warm on chilly nights.

Staying near the beach not only allows you to get away from the noise of the city, but also provides a view that is amazing to wake up and go to bed. This cabin’s private room makes that possible by putting you right at Glenbrittle Beach so that you can go fishing and tanning in a short walk. The Cuillin Mountains are also nearby in case you want to do some hiking or biking and get an even bigger view of the ocean. Forest walks in the Glen and the Viking Canal at Rubha Dunain are also in the area in case you want something to do each day of your visit.

Location plays a major role in how much you’re able to enjoy your time off where you stay, and that won’t be an issue for those who stay at this house. This double room option puts you within walking distance from a variety of locations, whether you want to try some whiskey at Talisker Distillery, going for a swim or catch some fish at the Fairy Pools, or go for a hike and take pictures of mountains and hills at the Cuillin. The free parking will help you save money for your activities, and you can watch shows and movies on your downtime thanks to the free Wi-Fi.

Having something new to do every day of your time off depends on what you are able to do in the area, and that is the case with this private room with bed and breakfast. This offering is located on the shores of Broadford bay in case you want to spend one day at the beach, and cafés, restaurants, and bars are a short drive away for when you want to go out in the evening. The double en-suite bedroom helps you, and a guest if you bring one, feel as comfortable as possible when you’re resting up, and just about each window comes with a great view of the area.
