Relax by the wood-burner and lap up the view: it swoops to the Outer Hebrides. From your converted cow-byre and its close-by B&B, you can watch buzzards wheel, and sunsets sink into the sea.
Outside: a firepit, a table, and a barbecue for balmy nights. Inside: sheepskin rugs and toasty warm floors, a small perfect kitchen, a dreamy bed, and humble, half-height stone walls. Vicki is always baking for the B&B and regularly drops off treats. Your hosts could not be more generous, yet are utterly discreet.
Stroll to Skyeskyns to buy sheepskin boots, or cakes from the yurt café. Head for Coral Beach, a 35-minute drive… dog-friendly and quiet out of season. Stock up in Portree (22 miles), or the stores in little Dunvegan. Or tumble down the hill to the welcoming Stein Inn, the oldest pub on Skye.
