It is with a sad heart that I have to let everyone know that Kelpie Cottage had a fire last week Sept. 19th 2022.

 Despite 4 fire crews nothing could be saved.

I have to stress that no-one was in the cottage at the time and no-one hurt.

 I do know what Kelpie Cottage meant to alot to many couples who have stayed, (some of you 9 times) and know how sad you all are. Please keep in touch many of you have become very good friends over the years,

 Thankyou for all your support,Linda

Kelpie cottage is a perfect base, it has everything in there you would ever need and more.The advantage of booking a cottage for your holiday is the flexability ,choose to eat out or cook at home, decide what time you leave and what time to return, go out travelling for the day or choose to walk to a beautiful secluded beach? the key is yours for the duration of your holiday with no restrictions.













In the small secluded township of Waterstein in the most westerly point on Skye lies Kelpie cottage.This delightful cottage was beautifully converted in 2009 to offer spacious accomodation of the highest quality for couples.

Northern lights can be seen from oct to april from the cottage door, weather permitting,if you have a camera with slow shutter speed you will be able to take photos of the lights when you can't see them with the naked eye. The winter skies are  amazing. the stars are so clear, you can see the satalites, and the creators on the moon, I do supply a telescope in the cottage too.


Kelpie cottage is situated opposite Loch Mor, a very safe fresh water loch ideal for water sports, if you would like to bring canoes, wind surfers etc with you I have ample storage space to keep them inside a shed  when not in use. This goes for cycles too.A small warning that we live in a very hilly area, not for the faint hearted as far as cycling goes.

The Kelpie or Each Uisge (water horse) is a mythical creature that inhabits various Lochs and streams in the Highlands. Loch Mor claims to be home to one such creature. A close encounter is thankfully unlikely; more likely is an encounter with one of the many creatures that share his domain. Golden Eagles, Sea Eagles, Otters, Foxes and more recently Red Deer have all made this their home. The spectacular sea cliffs make the perfect vantage point to spot Mink Whales, Basking Sharks, Porpoise, Dolphins, Seals and the varied groups of Sea Birds.a perfect retreat for bird watchers.

It took 3 weeks to carve this Kelpie on the cottage door.
