Scotland also has some of Britain's best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam. Town: Situated on the Trotternish Peninsula in the north of Skye is the scattered village of Conista - formed from a few, traditionally whitewashed cottages. Ten miles from the village of Uig, and six from Staffin, Conista is well served by local amenities. It also boasts close proximity to Duntulm, named after a steep rocky headland where the ruins of Duntulm Castle can be seen. The entire island offers excellent walking routes, as does the nearby mainland - accessible by both road bridge and ferry - whilst the breathtaking scenery makes a wonderful backdrop for cycling trips, fishing and birdwatching, especially as many seabirds use the steep cliffs during the early summer, including the rare Fulmar.

Perfect Retreat
A perfect retreat away from the hustle and bustle of life, Ridge End Cottage is immaculately clean and extremely welcoming. It really is a home from home set in stunning countryside and offers a great base from which to explore the Isle of Skye. We never return to places we've been before, as there is so much of the world to see; however, in this case we will be making an exception.

Fabulous location
I picked this cottage originally as it was near to the Quraing which is one of my favourite places on Skye. The cottage is really well fitted out. We used the top mezzanine which allowed us to see the northern lights from the top windows over the top of the island. There is a local shop a little drive away, but noting really else which means planning ahead and cooking at the cottage - the facilities are great for this so no issue! There are some great features of the cottage - the woodburner is really good and the power shower is superb after a long day on the hills. Overall, a great cottage in a very scenic location. Wish we'd stayed longer!!!

Cosy cottage with fantastic views!
Stayed at Ridge End Cottage for 2 weeks in August 2014. The house is situated in the North of Skye on the Trotternish Peninsula, very rural but stunningly beautiful. The house comprises of 2 ground floor bedrooms (one a double, the other with 2 singles), a ground floor shower and toilet, and a through lounge / kitchen / diner. On the first floor is a mezzanine bedroom with a double bed and a child's cot. There is a dishwasher, a washing machine, good sized oven and fridge freezer, television with Sky and wi fi connection. Also in the lounge is a woodburner, ideal if the weather is cool or damp. The house was immaculately clean and tidy, and our bed linen and towels were changed after the first week. The views from this cottage were amazing, the Quiraing from the back of the house, the Isles of Lewis and Harris from the front and all around grren fields, hills and sheep. The house is wonderfully placed for walking - the Quiraing, the Old Man of Storr, the dinosaur beach at Staffin, Duntulm Castle to name just a few. It also has easy access to the Skye Museum of Island Life, the Museum at Staffin and the Flora MacDonald monument. All in all we spent a fantastic fortnight in Ridge End and the Isle of Skye. Would suggest that although the house can accommodate 6 people, 4 may be a more comfortable number, but apart from that thoroughly recommended! Should also mention that Lorraine who looks after the house lives just along the road, and she's lovlely!

Superb location - mountains on one side and the sea (at a distance) on the other.
Ridge End Cottage is wonderfully located at the northern tip of the Trotternish Peninsula on Skye. Fifteen minutes into Staffin for light shopping, newspapers, and excellent Internet services at Columba 1400. 40 minutes into Portree. The interior of the cottage is clean and very comfortable and the neighbors around the cottage are exceptionally friendly and helpful. The only (very slight) downside was that the cottage was not as well-equipped as many that we have rented. But we had an excellent two weeks there and hope to be able to return.

Moyen
Cottage situé dans un environnement très calme avec des paysages magnifiques. L'équipement est médiocre: literie, canapés, table pour manger, chaises, vaisselle ( pas de saladier par exemple et des verres dépareillés), aucun mode d'emploi de l'électroménager et du chauffage, aucun dispositif de séchage du linge (séchoir, corde à linge, ...). De plus le linge de maison est réduit à sa plus simple expression ( par exemple un seul torchon). Compte tenu de l'éloignement des magasins ( petite épicerie à 15 minutes de route et supermarché à 45 minutes de route), il aurait pu y avoir un équipement de base (sel, poivre, huile, papier absorbant, éponges, etc).

Tranquil,Comfortable and utterly Relaxing!
Booking this holiday cottage was completed smoothly. The Cottage was all i saw in the on line images and more! The location is quiet with beautiful views especially from the dorma bedroom.Local people were welcoming and the shops and amenities were fine. I have too recommend the Little Teapot cafe in the local village the selection of Tea's from around the world and Home made cakes make this a must to enhance the whole relaxing experience of my stay on Skye.I will most certainly be returning to this cottage and area of stunning natural beauty!!

bucolic comfortable isolation
Recommended location to get away from it all. Extremely calm with great views. Access to Uig and Portree shops within 30mins. Well-presented cottage with all self-catering necessities for a family of four. Kids loved the wildlife,countryside,including basking sharks,otters,seals, dolphins all easily spotted within a week in summer. Hebrides clearly visible from upper bedroom.

Perfect cottage in perfect location!
It was an extremely well equipped cottage with high specifications. We especially enjoyed the wood burning stove and the beautiful upstairs bedroom. Local people were very helpful and nice. The cottage was a lovely place to come home to after a day's adventures in Skye.

Fantastic location!
We met some friends from Liverpool area here in the north of Skye. We didn't expect such a great location. And the "real"house is much better than the pictures on the homepage does show! But you should like remote areas! The next supermarket is far away - but what you get instead is a place of peace and tranquility. And overall the house is a good base for some beautiful hikes & places like the Old Man of Storr, the Quairing, coast & waterfalls! One negative thing: The combined living/dining-room was a bit too small for 4 adults & 1 child. Rating: We would definately come back!!
