A contemporary bolthole at the end of the track, with big views over northwest Skye

This might be called a shed, but is most definitely not your common or bottom-of-the-garden variety. It sits on the side of a remote hill, and outside, free-range chickens and Hebridean sheep strut their stuff under a vast sky with Loch Dunvegan shimmering below and Macleod’s Table rising to the south. A more traditional agricultural shed used to stand on this spot, but your creative hosts Blair and Tim paired up with local architects to replace it with the stylish cabin design you see today. Airy interiors have a chic uncluttered simplicity, made up of pine-clad walls, textured concrete floors and big windows to frame the view. There’s local art, an excellent bathroom with a big walk-in shower, a fully-loaded stainless steel kitchen, and you're welcome to sample the contents of the vegetable garden.

With a wrought iron king-size bed in the bedroom and an extra study area, there's plenty of room for two. Outside, there are a couple of decked terraces for good weather - one at the front where you can lose yourself in the view, another at the side where you can catch the sun. And if the sun doesn’t shine, it doesn’t matter at all. You can either watch storms pass, a strangely addictive experience, or chill out on the sofa with books, music or movies. There are cosy rugs, a wood-burner and even underfloor heating for especially chilly days, so come in winter and have the island to yourself; you might even see the Northern Lights.

Our guests say...

We had a wonderful week on Skye, and enjoyed luxurious comfort in a fantastic location. Skye is stunning, majestic and full of magic.



We had an amazing time – the Black Shed is in a phenomenal locale, and our hosts had thought of everything.



"Wonderful stay. Beautiful accommodation. Great location. Very peaceful and relaxing holiday"



"The black shed is a wonderful retreat. The scenery all around is splendid. The shed is stylish, amazingly well designed and extremely comfortable. It is well equiped with everything you could possibly need including wonderful little extras such as delightful locally made soaps, rugs, pottery and art work. Our hosts provided tasty homemade bread, scones and pizza. There was also a wee whiskey. The isle of skye is wonderful and our sightings of golden eagle, sea eagle, otters seals and deer made it even more special. Blair and Tim have created an amazing space to share..we had a magical holiday and will return."
