isle of skye bed and breakfast

We have very warm and sunny weather here at Seacroft Cottage on the Isle of Skye at the moment, we are well into 4 weeks of it now including a few days that were the hottest in the UK. This is our dog Jess relaxing and enjoying the view amongst the bluebells that are a bit late this year.


B&B Isle of Skye

Kilt Rock

  Kilt Rock on the Isle of Skye is a sea cliff in the shape of a kilt with vertical columns of basalt. There are panoramic views out to Rassay and we have spotted Minke Whale here too.

Dun Beag broch

Dun Beag broch is the most intact broch on the Isle of Skye probably dating back a few hundred years BC. The views from the broch over Loch Bracadale are very good, it is worth walking a few hundred metres inland to higher ground and get a photo of the broch with Loch Bracadale in the background.
