Welcome to Green Pastures, our wonderfully cosy, self-catering croft cottage at Gillen on the peaceful Waternish peninsula on the Isle of Skye, with its stunning views over the sea to Trotternish and the Outer Hebrides. Watch the sun rise over the sea from the large picture windows in the main bedroom and the lounge, relax in the peace and quiet of this very special location. What makes us special? Apart from the views, this is no sterile holiday cottage with no soul... this is a home, with character, warmth, cupboards full, personal pictures....a home from home.


Ideal as a romantic get away from it all for couples; or for two couples wanting a warm retreat; the cottage sleeps four people in two bedrooms. The main bedroom is stylishly appointed with a king size double, and large picture windows overlooking the sea.  Have breakfast in bed looking at the amazing view! The second bedroom is a light and bright double aspect twin room. There is a large lounge also overlooking the sea, with wood burning stove and comfy sofas and armchairs for relaxing. The gorgeous kitchen has breakfast bar and underfloor heating and all modern conveniences and appliances to make your stay chore-free, whilst a newly fitted bathroom with large rain shower over the bath also has underfloor heating.  The cottage also has a rear boot room/hall, and a spacious entrance hall.  As well as the wood burning stove, the cottage is warmed by oil fired central heating throughout plus the under floor heating in the kitchen and bathroom, so is suitable for all year round stays and cozy winter nights.  In the lounge you will find a satellite TV and DVD player, lots of books, games, and DVDs to keep you occupied.  The cottage has free broadband internet so you can always stay connected!  You will find suggestions for walks and things to do in the cottage, as well as ideas for where to eat if you don't feel like cooking.
