About this listing
Welcome to our family home in Staffin on the Isle of Skye. Our home is 100 years old and been beautifully renovated by ourselves and a few friends! I have two letting rooms. This room & a larger room (another listing) is on the ground floor with a kingsize double room.
I have two letting rooms and this is for Room 2 in the heart of the home. This is my smaller bedroom with a double bed and ensuite with power shower and includes fluffy towels and toiletries . The room is situated on the first floor and being a traditional croft house rooms were never designed to be big. This room has combed ceilings to give it a cosy feel. I have tried to retain the character of a old croft house in the home and managed to weave some of my grandmother antiques into the rooms. As the house is a traditional croft house The room has combed roof. Each room has a ensuite with a power shower, toiletries and fluffy towels, hospitality tray, with real coffee and (website hidden), books and maps, hot water bottles, hairdryer and free wifi. I serve breakfast in our breakfast room from 8am - 9am. With views over the Trotternish Ridge. The choices for breakfast are a full cooked Scottish breakfast, scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, a omelette or a continental platter.
