About Helen Shaw
We are Bob & Helen, and we live in an old farmhouse on the fells in between the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District. Bob is a computer expert and I am a photographer. We both love the outdoors and Scotland and have climbed many Munros. We are currently walking from Lands End to John o Groats(in stages as we can't be away from work for too long) and have reached Glasgow so far!
Helen Shaw purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Helen Shaw chose Isle of Skye
We fell in love with Green Pastures as soon as we saw it, just for the views it has and because we could have the 6 acres of land. The cottage needed a lot of refurbishment (Google street view images show how it used to be, not how it is now!) We love to be there ourselves for the peace and quiet and because Skye is such a very special place!
What makes this Cottage unique
We think you can't beat the views from the cottage across the bay and out to the Outer Hebrides. You can lie in bed and watch the dawn rise over the sea and the hills of Trotternish opposite, or sit in the lounge and watch dolphins in the bay below.

Lovely cottage in peaceful beautiful location.
Cottage has everything you need and is in excellent condition inside with modern kitchen and bathroom. Lovely location with good walking near by.
Thank you for a lovely review. We are so pleased you love the cottage both for its amenities and for its beautiful situation.
We are glad that you enjoyed your holiday and hope to see you at the cottagevagain in the future.
Fairly isolated especially for those who live close to civilisation! But perfect in every way for a relaxed holiday. Skye is a world apart from conurbation living. Loved the whole experience of peace and tranquility. Plenty to see and do on Skye without queuing, traffic jams or light pollution. Recommended.
Stunning views, idyllic, remote, perfect
As we approached Green Pastures Cottage on the wild and beautiful Waternish Peninsula we thought this looks pretty good. And then we saw the view from both outside and inside, and we knew that this place was going to be perfect. Finding it was so well furnished and equipped with a lovely modern kitchen and bathroom was even better. We had a fabulous week of walking and sightseeing, and the stunning views from the cottage were a constant source of pleasure. We were extremely comfortable and cosy no matter what the weather. The sense of remoteness just added to a peaceful, relaxed holiday.
Thank you so much for a great review. We are delighted that you loved the cottage with its modern facilities and great sea views!! We love it too! We hope to welcome you back again in the future.
Arrived back from a fantastic stay at green pastures. The first thing that me and my family found was the warm and homely feel to the cottage. It didn't feel like home it was home. The views are something else. Ever changing and ever beautiful. To sit outside and enjoy my morning coffee looking at the view was very relaxing. My 9yr old daughter loved the lap top computer when she wasn't reading or using the binoculars and telescope provided. We saw an array of wildlife including seal and dolphins following a fishing boat.
In the evening sat watching he moon rise over Uig and watching the reflection dance on the sea all the while snug and comfy in front of the real fire was brilliant. The cottage was clean and tidy and the kitchen is fab with all the mod cons. As is the bathroom with an amazing rain shower and underfloor heating.
The cottage is remote about 15 mins from dunvegan and just over half an hour from portree but this suited us. We wanted quiet and seclusion to just be a family.
If your looking for a home from home with amazing views, peace, quiet, stunning scenery and comfort then go to green pastures. I promise you will not be disappointed.
Thank you helen for an amazing time in your wonderful cottage.
We are so glad you loved your stay in our cottage. We are really pleased it felt like a home as we don't want it just to be a soulless holiday cottage but somewhere people can relax and be cosy and happy.
We love the cottage and the peace that can found there, and as you say, the view is wonderful!
Thank you for taking the time to submit a review.
Serenity and scenery
A perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of our normal daily life. Ever changing scenery from the big windows. Warm and comfortable cottage. We didn't want for anything during our stay (except less of the 40mph winds we had all week! ;-)). We were even lucky enough to enjoy an amazing display of the northern lights from just in front of the cottage! Stunning!
Thank you for a great review and how brilliant that you saw the Northern Lights, luck you! We hope to welcome you back again in the future.
Stunning views, peaceful location, cosy cottage
We had a thoroughly relaxing holiday in this cottage. The location was perfect and just as described. The views from the large windows were stunning and always changing. We had everything we needed, and we were cosy and warm all week despite the howling gales outside! We were even treated to a magical display of the northern lights one evening!
Thank you for a lovely review, we are so pleased you enjoyed the cottage and its great views, as well as seeing the Aurora Borealis!
The cottage has uninterrupted views over the sea to the Outer Hebrides. Is is situated on a quiet no through lane and is very peaceful, no light pollution and great for viewing stars. You can see whales and dolphins from the cottage and watch golden eagles and sea eagles from the cottage. The cottage is set in 6 acres and has red deer on the croft in front. There are great forest and cliff walks from the door. The historic Dunvegan Castle is just a short drive away. There are seal and whale watching trips locally.
