Discover Kingsburgh, Skye
Welcome to Kingsburgh, Skye – and the historic stone boathouse situated on the coast of Loch Snizort, North Skye – probably the ideal romantic hideaway.
Dating from Jacobite times, the Kingsburgh Boathouse is arguably the most luxurious small private retreat on Skye. Lovingly restored in recent years by Skye’s pre-eminent craftsmen, Kingsburgh Boathouse, proudly situated on the Atlantic coast, is now a luxury self-catering cottage and is available for the enjoyment of select, discerning visitors.
A life-time Skye resident, working on the recent restoration project remarked – ‘What a location. I never knew it was here.’ Discover the seclusion, the tranquillity and the luxury. Transport to local restaurants, such as the Three Chimneys, can be arranged – usually by car now, rather than by open boat! But 21st Century visitors will be as appreciative as those of the 18th Century; and the ancestors would be proud of the restoration project and of the hospitality now offered.
From Easter until end October bookings are taken on a minimum 7 night basis - usually from Saturday. From November until Easter, short breaks of minimum 4 nights are offered - but have to be booked by e-mail or by phone, rather than online. The rental charge per week for summer 2012 is £1050; for winter 2012/13 it will be £875 (except Christmas and New Year) and for summer 2013, £1200.
