Overlooking kilt Rock, set on the side of the inland Loch Mealt, this is an exceptional property. A completely restored, unique property even for...
A 2 bedroom, completely restored property on the shore of Loch Mealt.
This has been a labour of love for those involved in the project.
Unique in Skye. In a great place to see the Aurora Borealis if it is active.
Fully equipped kitchen:
Washer dryer, dishwasher, oven, hob, fully integrated fridge freezer and much more including a working fire place.
Delightful views from both bedrooms and the bathroom over the loch to Kilt Rock viewpoint.
A short distance from the Quiraing and just north of the Old Man of Storr, an ideal quiet place from which to explore Skye.
A great place for families, romantic getaways, escapism!
Not to be missed!

We loved our stay at Lochside. It had everything we needed to make our visit comfortable, easy and memorable. Thank you so much!!January 2020

Everything from booking to check out (and waving bye to the house) was really smooth! The property itself is spectacular and the views from every window in the house takes your breath away. I forgot how many photos I took just of the Loch in the morning or late evening. The rooms are cosy, the facilities are excellent and the wine on arrival made it feel like a special weekend. We're already looking to book up again this year! I guarantee anyone who stays here will NOT be disappointed.March 2020

Spectacular location on the river side and a warm setup inside the Homestay. It’s the best location near Portree and close to the sea. The property has great facilities which makes the stay easy and smooth.March 2020

Perfect location to visit some of the best attractions of the island: Quiraing, old man of Storr, Jurassic coast. The cottage is very well equipped with a surprisingly good WiFi. Every room with a beautiful view of the Loch.July 2020

We stayed here for a week and were simply blown away. Lochside is a great property to stay in. Everything that you would need for a week self catering (not including your food and drink) were provided. The views from Just about every windows are amazing. The property is warm. The Sofa and chairs are so comfortable as are the beds. The bath and the view from the window are simply amazing. The toiletries smell great (we have already bought some on our way home). It's very well situated for exploring the north end of the island. We did a bit of walking and a lot of driving but we loved every minute of being here.September 2020

Great cottage with a wonderful view
We hadn't originally booked lochside, however due to an unfortunately double booking, we were offered it as an alternative. The cottage is amazing - quiet with a lovely view of the loch an local sheep/lambs. Ben and his team were so helpful and everything was in order for our stay. we only wish we could have stayed longer.May 2021

Brilliant House and holiday
Lochside is a very well appointed house, in a stunning location. Very private and has tremendous views. The house was very clean on arrival. In fact very helpfully we received a text to let us know that the house was ready for us ....one hour earlier than stated. Ben, who manages the renting of the house was very professional, personable and promptly responsive to our communications with him. Our stay in Lochside contributed to a fantastic holiday on Skye.

We had a lovely stay at Lochside. It was even nicer than the pictures. Light, airy, comfortable with gorgeous views of the Loch and surrounding mountains. We would definitely recommend this place to others and would absolutely stay here again.June 2021

A beautiful location in a great area to explore beautiful Skye. The house is lovely and the manager was very quick to resolve a couple of issues.August 2021

Awesome scenery, the house was a little difficult to find but we did arrive after dark, which we weren’t expecting to do. About 16 miles back into Portree which is a nice village where the Arona cafe is definitely worth a visit for breakfast / coffee. The roads get a little dicey if you head north of staffin but an adventureSeptember 2021

An amazing week at Lochside
This was our second time at Lochside in as many years and it was even better than the first time. The property was really clean and tidy when we arrived. The weather was very good and the views are simply stunning (i could stare out at the loch all day and night) Ben and his team are fab. We were informed before we arrived of a small issue and it was dealt with in good time without any disruption. What really topped this stay was that half way through our stay i got an alert on my phone that the Aurora may be visible, so we rushed outside (in shorts and a tee shirt) and sure enough we got some stunning pictures of the aurora (it was also visible with the naked eye). It was absolutley amazing to see. We will be back here in the future i can guarantee it.September 2021

We loved our stay at Lochside. The home had everything we needed and it was so beautifully decorated. We loved the view and the quiet of the loch and it was the perfect place to explore Skye from. Ben was so helpful and we had got all our questions answered! We would highly recommend.September 2021

Lochside - great location for exploring Skye
The Lochside house is well located and a nice quiet place from which to explore the Trotternish peninsula of Skye. Beautiful view through large windows. The house was spotless. A problem was that there were no instructions for managing any of the equipment --- including the heat. Several amenities were not functional (e.g., a CD player with DVD disks). The exhaust fan developed an annoying tick sound and flashing light which was difficult to turn off, and appeals to the management company (through email) were not answered. In summary, with some updating and information for visitors, the rating for Lochside would be easily improved since the location is great.August 2022

Location, location, location
Within the easiest reaches of Quiraing and the Old Man. It was great to come back to a nice and warm home after a big hike. The communication was clear and constant. I would definitely stay again.May 2023

Fab 10 Nights
We had a great 10 nights at Lochside. This is our Fourth time and we are back for no 5 very soon. Lochside is so tranquil and the view is amazing over the loch. The weather wasn't great but it did not stop us doing what we wanted and even on the day the rain was coming down side ways the view over the loch is amazing. We had a couple of issues that were resolved by the team as quickly as possible and as usual we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lochside and Skye serviced accommodation to anyone.October 2023

Excellent 6 Nights
Had another fantastic stay at Lochside. This property is fantastic. Ideally located in a quiet location near to the small loch. We love coming here and we are sure to be back soon. Everything you need to prepare food is available (make sure you get our supplies in Portree before you head up, there is a small store in Staffin for milk and other bits and pieces). It's easy to get to most places from the property in the car. About a 30min drive back down to Portree. The Quaraing is a 10 min drive and is well worth a few visits. We are looking forward to our next visit to Skye and to Lochside.November 2023
