Situated in the extensive secluded grounds of Viewfield House is the Gardeners Cottage. Built in 1886 it was formerly used as the stable block for the big house. Forty years later, part of the building was turned into a cottage for the Gardener, hence the name. It is now a well-equipped comfortable family house.
Ideally located within ten minutes walk from restaurants shops and the picturesque Portree Harbour, the Gardeners Cottage is the perfect base for exploring the island.
The views to the front of the cottage are of the woodland and gardens. The back of the cottage is open on to the hill where you can walk straight to the top of Fingals seat. The garden behind the house enjoys considerable privacy and is a natural sun trap. Patio doors open out from the sitting room.
