This cottage is in a very remote position, and very high for a dwelling in the Western Isles, quite possibly the highest. The sunroom faces West and offers an astonishing panorama of the Sound, Skye from the Cuillin mountains to the tip of Trotternich, and the ever-changing sky. It is a traditional croft cottage, with many original features. You can walk directly from it both up Dun Caan and down to the beautiful Inver beach. "Utter, utter bliss." Please take a look at the reviews.

Beautiful scenery from the living room - spent our whole 5 days there. Extremely remote which was perfect for our honeymoon - but make sure you do a big shop before you go as there isn’t much in the shop on the island and it has limited opening hours. Thanks for a great stay.

Simply amazing views. Probably the best views you will get over the Island because of its high up location. We loved our stay and would highly recommend it. Remote from other cottages and housing which was a new experience for us because we are from London!

A very homely comfortable house. Loved all the old furniture and the fact that the house wasn't too modernised. The sun room is a gorgeous spot to drink in the lovely view. We couldn't help laughing when the sheep always seemed to arrive around tea-time to do the afternoon…

Toby and Oliver’s cottage is a small piece of heaven on earth where we have had the luxury of spending four consecutive months as a small family during the spring/summer and we have thoroughly enjoyed every single moment of it. The cottage is quaint and homely and beautifully…

Thank you Toby and Olly for a wonderful stay. The house was so cosy, and that view - out of this world! The house is very well equipped with everything we could have needed. The printed out walks were really helpful, we had a few lovely walks on the island. We would love to come…

A peaceful and beautiful setting for a retreat to the hills. The house itself is ideal and is a great place to base from to explore all the island has to offer. Thanks so much

Hi I'm Toby, Oliver Buxton's dad, and I have taken over the hosting from Olly because he's got a lot on his plate. I live in Oxford, sort of semi-retired. We started offering the cottage for rent last year; it is much better off occupied as much as possible, and it means we have…
