The Sleat peninsula is the Garden of Skye. Coachman's Quarters is a bright, airy, 2 double bedroom cottage in a quiet cul de sac; an 8 minute panoramic drive from Armadale ferry but within easy reach of the Skye Bridge. Children & 2 dogs, welcome.(Extra single bed & 5th person by request). Torabhaig Distillery, Knock Bay & Castle are 7 minutes walk. Armadale Castle is nearby. Lovely walks, South Skye Sea kayaks, 2 food shops and nice cafe at An Crubh is nearby. Great restaurants and pub.

The space
The open plan, two bedroom, cottage, with front door locksafe, and free parking, is warm, bright and airy with patio windows & door to the front patio that are great for watching house martins flying low in the evening. You can step out onto the front patio to relax. Suitable for couples or families. (An additional single bed for a 5th person can be put in the double bedroom, on request). Rear gravel courtyard can be gated to keep dogs safe. At night time an outdoor light sensor comes on when approaching the front door.
The kitchen is well equipped and has an electric hob, oven, microwave, kettle, cafetière, teapot, toaster, bread bin, washing up liquid, sprays, cleaning sponge/ cloths, oven gloves, apron, milk, tea, coffee, oil, salt, pepper, herbs.
There is wifi, and a bluetooth speaker. The living area has TV (Amazon TV), USB sockets, a cd player, books and comfortable sofas, armchair and side tables. A pack of cards and other games like Highland Monopoly, Uno or Twister keep you entertained .
Each bedroom has a spacious wardrobe, chest of drawers, chair, towels and usb sockets for recharging phones etc. The double bedroom has a table suitable for remote working.
The shared bathroom has a toilet, sink, wall cabinet with mirror, shaver points, deep bath with electric shower ( continuous hot water) over, stepping stool for easy access and heated towel rail and door hooks. Shower gel and shampoo supplied.
Dog owners should bring dog bowls and blankets. There are some towels by the front door for rubbing down pets. The side and rear courtyard can closed off so dogs can be let out safely. Dogs should not be left alone in the property.
There are electric radiators with timers in each room. The boiler is on a timer. You will wake up to hot water each morning and can press the boost button if you run out later on. The overhead shower has continuous hot water.
There is a vacuum cleaner, washing machine, iron and ironing board , a folding indoor clothes horse and an outdoor clothes line in the rear yard.
No smoking indoors or on patio. I regret no campervans or electric vehicle charging. Nearest charging point An Crubh, 2 and 1/2 miles away.

Where you’ll be

Teangue, Scotland, United Kingdom

The south Skye views across the Sound of Sleat to Knoydart are jaw dropping. The weather and light shifts constantly so you rarely step into the same view twice. The Sleat peninsula is known as the Garden of Skye and gets the most sunshine. Knock Bay, good for wild swimming, and Knock Castle are 8 mins walk from the cottage as is Torabhaig Distillery & cafe. Book an outing at nearby South Skye Sea Kayaks or drop in on Armadale Castle & Gardens, the Clan MacDonald headquarters while also explore the fascinating Museum of the Isles. Skye is rural and sheep or cattle often roam freely. Dog owners should keep dogs on a leash at all times.
There are 2 convenience stores within a few miles, one at Armadale and the other at An Crùbh. Broadford Co-op supermarket is open daily to 10pm.
The Sleat peninsula is surprisingly cosmopolitan. It is home to the Gaelic speaking Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, (SMO), part of the University of the Highlands where you can do short summer courses in Gaelic or entire degrees. SEALL provides year round concerts and theatre on the peninsula so check out their web-site. Of note is the Skye Summer Festival and November Small Halls Festival.
There are some great cafes (try lunch, excellent coffee and cakes at Torabhaig Distillery next door or An Crubh ££, outdoor play area, electric vehicle charging, 2 miles away) and pubs with good drink and food (An Praban Bar ££) at IsleOrnsay - 3 miles. Both do vegetarian/ vegan options. The Ardvarsar Inn has Skye Sports and football, Skye Gold ale, Misty Isle Gin. There is a good restaurant at Eilean Iarmain Hotel £££ which also distills its own whisky and gin range " The Gaelic Whiskies" also on sale in the An Praban Bar. Fine dining ££££ at next door Toravaig House Hotel and Duisdale House Hotel (vege options) and Kinloch Lodge ££££.
Ragamuffin is a boutique clothes shop at Armadale Pier with great knitware. Floraidh's at Isle Ornsay is a small clothes boutique.
Enjoy stunning sunsets and views to the Cuillins from the nearby Ord / Tarskavaig loop road which has great beaches at Ord, Tokavaig, Tarskavaig and Achnacloich. (Bring your wet suits).
I love going out on my electric bike. The Ord / Tarskavaig loop road. is outstanding cycling with views over the Cuillins but not for the faint hearted.
There are some lovely hill walks at Leitir Fura, Armadale Hill and to the Point of Sleat. You may see herons, eagles and deer.
The Museum of the Isles is really interesting going right back to Celtic times. Armadale Castle Gardens and woods are very pleasant.
The Elgol road is an easy and stunning drive out of Broadford (don't forget to look at the road) if you want to walk in the Cuillins to Camasunary or walk up Blaven.
