The View

The Location

Sconser lies at the heart of the island, 12 miles from Broadford and 12 miles from Portree, the Island’s capital.

Sconser is a small crofting village set around a bay, where Sgoirebreac Cottage sits at the foot of the majestic "Glamaig", which rises to the rear. To the front there are wonderful lochside views across Loch Sligachan towards Braes and beyond to the Island of Raasay. Otters are regularly observed, playing or foraging on the foreshore.

The cottage is ideally situated in the centre of the island, facilitating easy access to all the wonderful sights that Skye has to offer.

Sconser has its own challenging nine-hole golf course, affording magnificent views of the surrounding land and seascapes.

The Sconser Lodge Hotel, a former shooting lodge located in the village, boasts a Waterside Restaurant plus a cosy bar. For a wider choice, the famous Sligachan Hotel is located 2½ miles distant, on the road to Portree. This establishment has a lovely restaurant and lounge bar in addition to a large family bar, “Seamus’s”, where food is served all day.

Sconser is also the point of departure for the small car ferry that serves the Island of Raasay. This island is well worth a visit during your stay on Skye, and the twenty-minute sea crossing provides alternative breathtaking aspects to the views only previously enjoyed from terra firma.



For the hillwalker there are both gentle and challenging walks available right from the cottage door, whilst the Black Cuillin, 2½ miles away, offer climbers the greatest mountain experience available in the UK.
