Welcome to 6 Herbusta Self Catering Holiday Cottage, Kilmuir, Isle of Skye

Herbusta Holiday Cottage is a well-equipped self-catering crofter's cottage, located on a quiet road with spectacular views of the Outer Hebrides across the Minch. It has a kitchen, lounge, dining room and four bedrooms, comfortably sleeping 6 people. The property has both a bathroom and shower room. Ideal for families, it has a large tree-lined enclosed garden. There is plenty of parking and a small patio with garden furniture.

Herbusta is situated in Kilmuir, just off the main Uig-to-Staffin road. It is within easy walking distance of the Skye Museum of Island Life and Flora MacDonald's monument. A waymarker, just outside the property, leads you to a hidden corrie loch, nestled beneath cliffs where Golden Eagles can be observed.

The cottage is also within easy reach of the sea. Camas Mor and Duntulm bays provide rock fishing, whilst a sandy beach lies nearby at Staffin Bay. The Whitewave outdoor centre in Kilmuir offers kayaking, canoeing, windsurfing, climbing and archery.
