Built in 2015, a detached studio with majestic, cliff top views down to the village of Stein & over the sea to the Outer Hebrides. We have the most amazing sunsets! Open plan, cosy, yet light and airy; a peaceful haven in which to relax. We've tried to create self catering, that is a tad out of the ordinary, with funky textiles & quirky local touches. Modern facilities, huge drench shower, dishwasher, log burner and wi-fi.
We provide information on local attractions, shopping options & maps.
The studio is detached & open plan with a comfy couch by the huge window from which you can enjoy the magnificent views across the bay. Everything in the studio has been made or chosen with love & care. We've consciously tried to avoid the neutral, high street look. The bed is king-sized with Egyptian cotton bedding. Included in the price is free WiFi and a landline telephone. There is a small decking area on the sea side for guests to sit out on. The garden is enclosed. There is a privacy fence to shield the studio from our own home. We respect the privacy of our guests.
Logs are also provided for the stove and all electricity is included. We're not fans of fabric conditioners or tumble dryers, so although our towels are Egyptian Cotton, they are not the softest. We pride ourselves in the studio being spotlessly clean; we clean it ourselves, to be sure!
There is off-road parking to the rear. The studio has a small grassed area surrounding it.

We retired early and moved to Skye three years ago. We love living on top of a cliff, looking out to sea and watching the changing weather and light on the water. We were both teachers although my wife, Jayne has been involved in textiles for the past twenty years, as visitors to the studio will see for themselves. We enjoy the simple things, getting out & walking, reading, great films & tv, eating out with friends. We are lucky to have great restaurants on Skye.
We are looking forward to travelling more over the coming years. We want to get to know all the other Hebridean islands; and then go off into Europe, Italy being a favourite destination for us. Visiting New York is also high on the agenda as our son has recently moved, there.
