Majestic properties to rent on the Isle of Skye

The jagged peaks and violent coastline of the Isle of Skye are now contrasted with the ultra-modern, ultra-minimal architecture which has emerged over the last decade on this remote, beautiful island. Don’t let rumours of dramatic wind and rain fool you. There’s rarely any need to really batten down the hatches. The gulf stream breeze and glorious summer heat is often followed by dark, beautiful winters. This moody celestial land calls to the nomad in all of us and we bow to its enchanting beckoning.  In order for you to experience it, we have put together a list of the best escapes Skye has to offer.

Tinhouse

 

 

Tinhouse is a unique, architectural award winning luxury holiday cottage for two. Located in North West Skye, it is ideally located for foodies, walkers, or simply those who want a secluded break on the extraordinary landscape of the Isle of Skye. Finished with the highest quality furnishing and fittings, the house exudes a relaxed style, and enjoys panoramic views over the seascape of north west Skye.

Tinhouse has been designed and built by the owners, Gill and Alan. They run one of the Highlands most successful architectural practices and their award-winning work is regularly profiled in the press.
