Apple Blossom is a detached, luxury, self catering cottage, situated in the friendly crofting community of Eabost, nestled on the west coast of Skye.  The village lies 10 minutes drive from Dunvegan, 20 minutes from Portree and Sligachan, while both the Skye Bridge and Armadale ferry terminal are about 1 hours drive away.  The cottage enjoys stunning, uninterrupted views of the Cuillin Hills to the east - the perfect position for an unbeatable sunrise and sunset!

 

 

Previously a crofting cottage, Apple Blossom now provides a luxury "home away from home" on the Isle of Skye, ideal for romantics, friends or small families, a maximum of 4 guests.

Apple Blossom Cottage is strictly No Smoking throughout.

In consideration of allergy sufferers we do not accept pets into Apple Blossom Cottage.

A warm and welcoming Entrance Porch with attractive monks bench and storage for both coats, shoes and more importantly on Skye, those walking boots!  To help you enjoy those fantastic views, we have also provided a tripod mounted fieldscope!

With our guests in mind, we've created a notice board here where you will find leaflets, business cards, brochures, local restaurant menus etc. to help you get the most out of your stay on Skye - please feel free to add anything to this board that you discover and think future guests will enjoy!

The Living room sits right at the heart of Apple Blossom, with an unbelievably comfy suite, a 32" LCD TV with full Sky viewing package (& 1 Sky Gnome to take Sky music/radio channels into another room!), DVD player/recorder & Bose Wave Music System, free Broadband connection for your own laptop and free UK landline calls (BT conditions apply) during your stay (other calls are charged at a discounted BT tariff and charged to your credit card accordingly at the end of your stay)!  Additionally, you can curl up in total comfort in front of the "Squirrel" wood burning stove which provides a lively and warming focal point if the weather turns a bit chilly, along with plenty of games stashed under the coffee table to entertain both small and big children alike!
