BORN FREE'S HOLIDAY COTTAGE ON THE ISLE OF SKYE

 

CNOC NA GAOITHE 'The Windy Hill'

Eyre, Nr Portree, Isle of Skye 
Sleeps 6/7 people

History, beauty and wildlife abound. The Isle of Skye offers you ancient heritage and a natural environment inhabited by birds of prey, deer, wild sheep and highland cattle. You may also have the opportunity to witness otters, seals and porpoises!

Virginia McKenna and Bill Travers, founders of Born Free, and also stars of the film Ring of Bright Water, had close connections to Gavin Maxwell, the author of the book, who lived in Kyleakin on the Isle of Skye. This cottage was donated to our charity to help raise funds to continue with our work to alleviate the suffering of animals in captive environments and conserve species in the wild, and makes the perfect retreat at the end of the day exploring this magical island.

Situated only seven miles from the main town of Portree, the cottage is within the small crofting community of Eyre, overlooking the magnificent Cuillin Mountains and the beautiful Loch Snizort. It dates back to circa 1880 and has been modernised to present day standards, but still retains its wonderful character and charm.
