The Hideaway on Skye

Romantic coastal retreat

The Hideaway has been designed as a romantic retreat, just for two people.

The location is the tranquil crofting village of Tarskavaig, on the Sleat peninsula of Skye. Designed as a place where couples could enjoy time together with no interruptions from the outside world it has a wonderfully relaxing atmosphere, with high vaulted ceilings, timber walls and large windows. Finished to a high standard throughout, with bespoke finishing touches.

The mezzanine bedroom, with king-sized bed, allows guests to sit in bed and gaze out onto the sea view of Tarskavaig Bay and beyond to the Isle of Rum.

There is underfloor heating throughout the downstairs area, and for cosy evening in there is a log-burning stove in the sitting room (logs provided).

The boutique-style bathroom has a spacious shower with plenty of hot water.

There is a well-appointed kitchen and dining area.

Crisp cotton sheets and fluffy towels are provided along with complimentary toiletries from the Highland Soap Company.

All household items are there for guests, (because no-one wants to think about buying that stuff when they are on holiday!).

There are lovely walks throughout the Sleat peninsula, with plenty of wildlife including otters, dolphins and eagles.

Excellent local restaurants (including the Michelin-starred Kinloch Lodge) for dining out.

The Hideaway has good transport links. Only seven miles to the Mallaig – Armadale ferry terminal (considered to be one of the most scenic ferry rides in the world!), and if arriving on Skye via the Skye bridge then the road down the Sleat peninsula is an easy drive with stunning views.

Available all year. Minimum booking period is 3 nights.
