About John Mackay
My name is John Mackay from the Isle of Skye! I am a native Gaelic speaker and a part time postie and also a time served panel beater/paint sprayer which I still try and do whenever I get an opportunity. I am also a keen hill-walker and try to get out on an amazing Skye walk at least once a week.
Why John Mackay chose Isle of Skye
I was brought up in the Cottage and I am the third generation of my family to have lived there. I love this area as it is where I grew up and I also love the peacefulness of the location.
What makes this Cottage unique
As the Cottage is situated so closely to the Cuillins, it is ideal for the many wonderful walks that are nearby. The lack of street lighting makes for spectacular star gazing on a clear night!

Lovely cottage in a very peaceful area. Very well equipped kitchen. The weather wasn't the best, but didn't keep us in. Skye is a beautiful place with fantastic scenery.
Gem on Isle of Skye
This lovely cottage/house is very private, clean, and extremely well equipped. You can drive the trotternish peninsula easily in a day from this location. Lots of walks, and hikes close by. The owner is very helpful.
Very well equipped cottage.
We found the cottage to be extremely well appointed with everything we required. The owner was very friendly and helpful but in no way over attentive. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Fiscavaig.
The cottage was absolutely perfect with every possible need catered for.
A perfect location with stunning views. Very homely, comfortable, and well thought through. The coal and peat fire, and all of the welcome gifts and special touches went a long way to what was a perfect break. Thank you to John who couldn't have done more. Looking forward to returning again soon.
Fabulous Cottage, Stunning Location!
Both the cottage and interior are of a very high standard. Clean, tidy, and comfortable. A great base to go exploring and a comfortable retreat to relax. The coal fire and Wi-Fi are great additions and if asked would we stay here again?...... YES!
