You’ll find staying in Glasnakille an unforgettable experience. Stone Cottage Skye is a luxury highland cottage, and provides the following experiences:
or simply chill, and curl up with a good book by the woodburning stove.
The cottage offers the following amenities and comforts:
The Ground floor has underfloor heating throughout – a beautiful experience to walk on in bare feet.
The Living Space is open plan and expansive. A quaint porch with exposed stone walls leads into a large, characterful lounge with a cosy wood burning stove, exposed beams, bare stone walls, floor to ceiling window, bookcases galore and an old school hi-fi with plenty of (slightly dodgy) vinyl. There is a DVD player with built in screen and WiFi. The DVD player has a Chromecast device which is suitable for streaming digital radio. (6music etc).
The kitchen and dining area is a large,light-filled atrium space. The floor to ceiling window by the dining table has stunning views across the Sound of Sleat to Tarskvaig, Tokavaig and Ord. Exposed 3m high stone walls, RSJs, a ‘floating staircase’ and polished concrete floor makes any meal an event. Neff induction hob, oven and fridge freezer, together with a Zanussi dishwasher and LG washing machine completes the picture.
Byre bedroom is on the ground floor and has been created from an original stone outbuilding. Again has exposed stone wall with fireplace (not working). A cosy, low ceiling and walls lined with recycled wood paneling. The variety of tiny cute windows and floor to ceiling windows ensures this room is cosy and characterful, yet strikingly different.
Upstairs is reached via a ‘floating’ staircase (achieved by cantilevering two of the lounge beams through to the kitchen). This minimalist structure is made from oiled douglas fir with clear glass banisters to preserve the simplicity. The landing has a frosted glass floor, which allows more light to stream up and down the stairs (including the uplighters set in the concrete floor).
The Upstairs bedroom is one large open plan space with wide planks of Scots pine and a circular, enclosed en suite containing toilet, basin and a large circular bath. The bedroom has a small spying window down into the kitchen below.
There are parking facilities on site, sufficient for two cars.
