Lighthouse description

At your holiday begins with a boat ride. Sit back, enjoy the views and feel the stresses and strains of daily life slowly fading away…

Stylish bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms

Every room in the cottage is stylishly decorated and every bedroom has a deluxe ensuite bathroom. A characterful living room and dining room are where you can relax and eat when you're ready to come in from the great outdoors.  The spacious lounge offers plenty of room for up to eight people to relax and unwind. Whether you read a book by the wood-burning stove, for wildlife through one of many windows looking across the Sound of Sleat or play a board game with the children, we hope you’ll enjoy the peace and tranquillity of your own private hideaway.

Cooking and eating experience

The kitchen is fully equipped with luxury modern conveniences which include a SMEG range cooker, microwave, and American style fridge. Your cooking and eating experience at this holiday cottage will be a far cry from the hardships endured by the lighthouse keepers of days gone by. The atmospheric dining room is where all your party can gather together to dine in style. Just around the bay, a traditional Highland pub awaits when you’re ready to reconnect with the outside world or feel like dining out.

Ocean view

All four bedrooms at Eilean Sionnach are ensuite and have been tastefully decorated with high-quality fixtures and fittings. The memory foam mattresses and sumptuous bedding are comforting to sink into after a long day in the fresh air.  The master bedroom is spacious and tranquil and in the master bathroom you can enjoy endless ocean views as you unwind in the roll-top bath – perhaps with a glass of something bubbly or a good book in hand? Three of the rooms have king-sized beds and the fourth room works best as a single for adults or a pull out double sleeping two kids.

How to get there

We're located just off Isleornsay Pier on the South of Skye.  The boat skipper will meet you at a pre-arranged time either at the pier or in the pub. He will then take you on a short (10-15 min) trip to the island. Can you think of a more magical way to begin your stay?
