A place to relax, unwind and be in harmony with nature.

Whether you dream of days overflowing with outdoor pursuits or a cosy winter break, a holiday on the Waternish peninsula of Scotland's stunning Isle of Skye will exceed your expectations.

Set high above the others on the hillside, on a traditional croft surrounded by rare Hebridean black sheep, La Bergerie is the jewel in the crown. Recently built to an exceptional standard, this luxury stone cottage offers comfortable and spacious self-catering holiday accommodation for up to eight guests.

From this elevated position the cottage offers some of the most breathtaking panoramic sea views and scenery available on Skye - right from your window! Ideal for photographers, artists or just lovers of fabulous landscapes, seascapes or nature.

La Bergerie is also perfectly placed to explore the whole of Skye's heritage, including the nearby picturesque fishing village of Stein with a jetty ideal for small boats and canoes, Dunvegan Castle - seat of the Clan MacLeod, Neist Point, the Quirang and the Old Man of Storr on Trotternish, the fabulous Cuillin mountains and the island's main town of Portree.

Shops and facilities are available at nearby Dunvegan (approx. 8 miles) and the island's main town of Portree (approx. 25 miles).


La Bergerie is a clever blend. Traditional on the outside yet modern on the inside. Local stone, natural wood and light, combine with unique personal touches, to create a rich ambiance that reflects both the stunning natural beauty of the surrounding Hebridean landscape and the special "Auld Alliance" between French and Scottish cultures.

A blend of fine furniture and modern conveniences ensures that your stay will be comfortable and relaxing:

Location - How to Find Us

After crossing the Skye bridge, (you are now approximately a one hour drive away from Waternish) go right around the roundabout and take the road to Portree, the main village of Skye (A87). You will pass through many small villages and the village of Broadford before passing the Red Cuillins (MacDonald) and the Black Cuillins (MacLeod) and Sligachan Hotel. Drive carefully because there are often sheep or red deer on the road.

When you have reached Portree, follow signs for Uig and Dunvegan, turning left at the sign posted junction (A87). (You are now approximately half an hour away from Waternish). Continue to Borve ( about 2 miles) and take the left fork to Dunvegan (A 850). Keep on this road, passing through several little villages, including Edinbane until you reach the junction at Fairy Bridge (approx. 5 miles before Dunvegan). Waternish and Stein are well indicated on sign posts. Turn right onto the B886 and continue for a 3 miles. This is a narrow road and passing places must be used. Watch out for sheep and cows on the road. My house is the sixth dwelling on the right hand side (just after the slope), a white house with bay windows and a pink stork picture on the front door. Look for "the little black sheep" too!

You must come here first to collect the keys for La Bergerie which is 2 houses after. If lost, please do not hesitate to telephone Chantal on Tel 01470 592282. Have a safe journey.
