Knott Cottage

Relaxing self-catering accommodation on the Isle of Skye

View from Cottage

Welcome - Faillte

Knott Cottage on the Isle of Skye commands marvellous views over Loch Snizort Beag, towards the distant hills of the Outer Hebrides.


Open all year. We offer our two custom-built Studio Apartments as well as our comfortable and well equipped Two Bedroom Apartment which are superbly located just 100 metres from the high tide mark of a sheltered bay and are all perfect for a relaxing holiday.


The bay is home to otters, seals and a variety of seabirds. You can even harvest mussels, cockles and whelks at low tide while exploring the easily accessed pebble and black sand shoreline.


Golden and Sea Eagles can be spotted overhead.


A profusion of Orchids and Primroses and an abundance of other wild flowers can be found on the headland and on the croft land around the cottage.


Around Mid-Summer you can enjoy very long hours of daylight with the sky getting no darker than twilight. At other times of the year our Dark Skies permits star gazing to add to your enjoyment.


The accommodation is situated in Knott, a crofting township of 7 houses, which lies midway between Skye's main centre Portree and Dunvegan, with its 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.


We invite you to unwind in the tranquil setting of Knott, make use of our mature flower filled garden complete with garden furniture and BBQ. This invitation includes one well behaved dog, if appropriate, only if you wish to stay in the apartment.
