    It’s close to Portree yet was has its own remote location. It also has it’s own wildlife visitors - wild pine martens visited nightly to pick up food left out for them.

    Location, attention to detail, the welcome, little (but big) things like milk and tea / coffee / biscuits on arrival and binoculars. Waking up to a real-life ‘landscape painting’ each morning, the personal touch, the seclusion, interaction with...
  • Wim
    Perfect in everything. Most perfect was seeing a marter and hedgehawk very close by.

Neil and Angela
Air an Oir is a purpose built, secluded, one bed-roomed property offering luxury self catering accommodation with uninterrupted panoramic sea views in Portree, Isle of Skye. The cottage is tucked away on a crag overlooking the sea at the end of a long private drive. Being in Portree, the main town on the Isle of Skye, it benefits from being within walking distance to shops, restaurants and other services, yet its location also offers guests with frequent sightings of otters, seals, sea-eagles and other wildlife. We have a nightly visit from a pine marten with some guests seeing it at our feeder in the early evening. Built of Siberian larch, highly insulated and with large treble glazed windows to maximise views, Air an Oir has been designed to very high standards and has a contemporary coastal interior design theme.
The Isle of Skye has spectacular scenery coupled with a rich culture and heritage. There are fantastic places to see and visit and superb restaurants and hotels offering some of the freshest seafood in Scotland. Wildlife abounds! Portree has a nice mix of shops and restaurants easily reached by walking (20mins) or by car (3 mins). It is the main fishing port in the north west of the island and fishing boats landing their catch can usually be seen around 9pm each evening. The bountiful seas around the island ensure that the best quality sea food can be served in restaurants such as Scorrybreac, Cuchullin, and Dulse & Brose in Portree, as well as other establishments around the island. The Three Chimneys, Lochbay and Kinloch Lodge, all acclaimed restaurants are within an hours' drive. Edinbane Lodge is a recent favourite for fine dining. There are picturesque geological features to explore such as the old Man of Storr (15mins), Cuillin mountains (15 mins), Quiraing (30mins), Kilt Rock (20 mins) and Fairy Pools (30mins). Talisker Distillery (Whisky) and Misty Isle Distillers Gin School are also nearby.
