Surrounded by 87 acres of wild land, with its own seashore, Corry is a historic house in a world of its own. Built in 1790, Corry is one of Skye's oldest and most beautiful homes, hidden by trees, and sitting a hundred feet from the shore of Broadford Bay. The rest of the treasures of Skye are in easy reach, and Broadford and its restaurants are a walk or a short drive away.
This one of two principal bedrooms available. The room is sea facing, with cosy armchairs, a traditional bathroom (big bath with hand held showers) and beautiful views across our garden and our favourite historic trees (‘Boswell’ and ‘Johnson’) to Broadford Bay and the mountains beyond.
The room is on the first floor, and is approached directly from the main entrance hall by a spiral staircase with prints that include a copy of William Daniell’s early 19th century painting of the Lodge and its estate.
The room is spacious and very quiet, and has a huge and very comfortable brass bed. There is a sheepskin hot water bottle for cooler nights; Skye soap in the bathroom; and a kettle and everything needed to make a cosy cup of tea.
The Corry estate, with its woods and fields and coast is available for all guests. Guests are also welcome to use the sitting room, where a continental breakfast is also available from 8 a.m. This has cosy armchairs to curl up in after a day outside. There is also a veranda for those who would like to sit outside and watch the natural world.
Kayaks are available for guest use.

There is always someone at Corry. We are delighted to answer questions and to share recommendations, but there is a lot of work to do on the estate (and dogs to walk) so we may not be always on hand in the house. We provide a great guide to special local places, and the sitting/breakfast room is full of maps and local travel information.
Depending on which of us is in the house at the time of your stay, in addition to English, we speak Gaelic, Chinese, French, German and a little bit of Italian and Spanish (and if the speaker of the relevant language is away, they can always be found on the phone).
Tea and whisky on arrival, sheepskin hot water bottles for cooler nights, Skye soap, kettles and tea in all rooms. Corry lodge is an adored family home, with a personality, and a story, of its own. While it is lovingly prepared to welcome guests, it is also an old house, well-worn with highland life.
We have many visitors from around the world (and travel a lot ourselves) so we keep adaptor plugs available in the house (and hope that guests leave them for others to use).
We have our own guide to the special places on the estate, and across Skye, which is shared with guests. We are happy to make recommendations on restaurants - early booking is advised.
There is a medical centre within walking distance from the Lodge as well as a hospital (with a helipad) for any emergencies (the helipad is often called upon to evacuate distressed mountaineers but is available for all medical emergencies).
We have two dogs: a large Scottish deerhound and a small corgi (all the way from Beijing). While the house can be busy in the day, in the evening and at night, the main house is a haven of peace and quiet.
There are no cooking facilities, but restaurants and cafes are in easy walking distance.
The house is an oasis of calm and we ask all of our guests to be thoughtful about noise in the evenings and early mornings.
We have two dogs already in residence so we are not able to take additional pets.
Corry Lodge is non-smoking. Smokers can smoke outside but we ask everyone to be vigilant with regard to fire hazards. Skye can usually be counted on to deliver some rain but summers are increasingly dry.
We ask our guests not to eat meals in their rooms.
Most of our guests find that the wild landscape and fresh air send them to sleep fairly early. Whatever the evening hour, we ask all of our guests to keep conversations low so as not to disturb others.
Parking is available at the rear of the house; we ask our guests to park with consideration for other vehicles and to keep the level of evening conversations low in areas around the house, again as consideration for other guests.
Corry Lodge is also home to Corrymhor and Kyle, our Scottish deerhound and our older corgi (who comes all the way from Beijing). Both are friendly and love affection but from time to time, when the house is full, may be grateful for a bit of space.
We are not able to accept children under the age of 10. We are able to find additional beds for children above that age (there is an additional charge).
within the check-in window, guests are kindly requested to provide rough arrival time within one day of arrival; there is a late fee for arrivals after check in times; UK 10 after 9 pm increasing by UK 10 for arrivals after 10 pm and UK 20 for every hour after that (we have to be up early to walk dogs so late arrivals are very difficult for us).
The Corry estate is a beautiful area of unspoiled nature. We ask our guests to treat it with love and respect.
