Self Catering Isle of Skye

 

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 about a 10 minutes drive from Dunvegan, 20 minutes from Portree and Sligachan (Cuillins), while both the Skye Bridge and Armadale ferry terminal are less than an hours drive away.  The cottage enjoys a stunning, uninterrupted view of the Cuillin Hills to the east, and is a peaceful retreat from which to enjoy your holiday. It is a 3 minute walk from the cottage to the Sea Shore
