This was a great place for the two of us. The studio is high quality in all regards. The views are excellent, the location is brilliant to visit all aspects of the island anh the owners are lovely people.
The studio is spacious and extremely well equipped, with a full-size kitchen, including dishwasher and washing machine. The view of the loch is magnificent and we spent the evenings staring at it rather than watching the TV/CD player. The studio is close to the main...More

The accommodation is situated in Knott, a crofting township of 7 houses, which lies midway between Skye's main centre, Portree, and Dunvegan, with it's world famous Castle and Gardens. It is ideally placed to explore the many tourist attractions the Isle of Skye has to offer - from the outstanding peaks of the renowned Black Cuillin to the extraordinary geological and prehistoric spectacle of the Trotternish peninsula. Many of Skye's most notable visitor attractions are within a 30-minute drive.
How to get there
Directions by road
On coming on to the island follow the signs to Portree, on the A87.
Just past Portree High School turn left (still on the A87) signposted 'Uig-Dunvegan'. After 3 miles take the sliproad A850 to Dunvegan.
6 miles on, having passed the sign for Treaslane look out for the red phone box on the right.
Prepare to turn right on the bend, at the signpost for KNOTT.
At the first cottage on the left ( do not on the township road, turn left and KNOTT COTTAGE is at the bottom of the drive.
We would advise that if you are using a Sat Nav that you key in 'The Skye Bridge' in the first instance and once you have arrived on the Island the postcode or 'Knott' as we have had some guests directed to Mallaig where they have been unable to get on the ferry to Skye and have then had a long extra drive to Knott.
