About Georgina McNaught

We are renting my grandfather's old cottage on Skye where we have enjoyed family holidays for many years.

Georgina McNaught purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Georgina McNaught chose Isle of Skye

Skye is beautiful and peaceful. This cottage used to belong to my grandfather and we came here for many many wonderful holidays.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is a perfect base for exploring Skye. It's peaceful and backs onto the hillside, but it's only ten minutes from Portree, where there are shops, restaurants and a lovely harbour.

We have recently put in a new kitchen with new appliances, utility room with washer and drier, there is a powerful shower, and also a log burning stove for cosy evenings in by the fire. There is a separate dining room for family meals and planning the next day's adventures with the help of our maps and guide books. Newly installed central heating system 2014.

There is a lovely mature enclosed garden, half an acre, perfect for relaxing in and taking in the views and for kids to play.

Whether you like walking, mountaineering or just relaxing in peace, Skye is a wonderful place to take a break.

Cosy cottage conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

It was a great holiday and the cottage had all the amenities. A short 4 mile drive away is Portree and all the major attractions are within a 15 mile radius of the property. The owners were really helpful and sent us their recommendations of the place.. we recommend!!

Perfect place to stay in!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late in the evening and it was already getting dark but instructions were spot on and we found the house easily. We were very nicely surprised the heating was on and house was nicely warm with a fire place ready to be lit. We really appreciated it as it was a cold evening. The cottage was warm, cosy... simply perfect. Kitchen was very well equipped and even a bottle of wine was waiting for us there. Instructions left in the house were clear and helpful. View was absolutely amazing and the house had very pleasant garden. We travelled around Scotland for a week and we all agreed this was the best place we stayed in!

Lovely family holiday

Just back from our second stay at the cottage. It was absolutely brilliant again, utter shame the weather was awful but coming back to a wood burner every night made up for it!!

Very nice house in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Two friends and I stayed at this cottage earlier this week while visiting Skye, and loved it. The house was cute and cozy - beds were comfortable, bathroom was great with plenty of hot water, and the views out the windows were lovely. Georgina provided a lot of very helpful information ahead of time (including fantastic directions to the cottage), and a binder in the dining room had even more information. If you are visiting Skye and have a car, this is a fantastic place to stay! I hope to be able to visit again myself in the future.
