Here’s what our guests have to say about us
The accommodation of Peggy & Donald is just wonderful! We had such amazing days in the Causeway! The nature destinations on Skye are fabulous! The place is just recommendable! Thanks a lot for everything! The house was very clean and absolutely enjoyable! it has everything u need and more! only negative aspect: We only booked 6 days… should have been 16 or more 😀 Don’t think about booking here, just do it! Wish you all the best, Evelyn & Daryl
What an amazing view! The location is in the country side, but still just 20-30 min drive to Portree, also short drive to the Fairy pools and hikes in the south. The apartment is impeccably clean and well stocked! Highly recommend.
Absolutely breathtaking chalet on the brink of Amar River, flowing out into the sea. Sip wine, look at the sunset and watch otters swim, fish jump and eagles and herons fly above you. I’ve travelled many places over 10 years and this is one of my favorites – no people, occasional car, and wonderful nature. If you want to explore Skye, this place is perfectly, centrally located, giving you easy access to all parts of the island for day trips. The chalet has everything you need – luxury bathroom and kitchen to cook your own food. Should it rain (count on it!) you can sit in comfortable decliners and watch nature do it’s thing through the panoramic windows. Both Peggy and Donald are natural born Skyelanders and have a lot of off the grid info about places to go and see. They will help you in any way they can and are easy to contact, as they live in the main house next door. I would highly recommend this place as your home away from home.
This holiday has been exceptional. Peggy and Donald were fab hosts, friendly, approachable, great sense of humor and extremely helpful. The lodge was absolutely gorgeous and in such a stunning location, with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable, relaxed stay. The weather was glorious. We have swam in several bays and even The Fairy Pools. We have seen a great deal of wildlife including golden eagles on our walks/drives and sea eagles and dolphins on the boat trip from Carbost. What and absolutely gorgeous island. We would love to return to Skye and The Causeway someday. Just beautiful.
We had a wonderful stay at The Causeway. The surroundings are gorgeous and views from the lounge and bedroom are stunning. Even the rain looks lovely when viewed from here!! The bed was one of the most comfortable we’ve ever slept in and the kitchen wonderfully equipped. There is a very comprehensive folder showing how the accommodation works and giving lots of ideas for things to do in the area. Peggy and Donald are perfect hosts: they made us feel very welcome and like nothing was too much trouble. Peggy sent very helpful directions on how to get to the accommodation and was around in case any difficulties arose…which none did as everything is so beautifully set up. We had a lovely break and would love to return sometime.
Lovely place to stay would highly recommend.
Central location to all attractions on Skye
The chalet is located in a small secluded bay with easy access to shopping 20 minutes away in Portree via a picturesque trip over the hills and perfectly placed for all the sights and trips the Misty Isle has to offer.
Within 10 minutes walking distance you find a café with bookshop called the Bog Myrtle (a Scottish wild flower) or The Crofter’s Bite, that offers hot food from their pop-up street van.
Get real close to wildlife
The Amar river and the flow of ebb and tide in Loch Baeg provide a rich feeding ground for all kinds of wildlfe to be seen from the comfort of the terrace.
An otter familiy is often seen hunting and playing in the waters straight in front of the chalet alongside various duck species, that hatch their eggs here. Golden eagles circle our property and even land on the terrace.
Similarly both oyster catchers and sand pipers have previously made their nests in the garden in front of the chalet, making this the perfect place to get close-up photos of Skye’s wildlife. Bring your binoculars or use the ones we provide.
Surrounded by nature
Start your day with stunning views of the 100 meter vertical cliffs of Rubha nan Clach and it’s lighthouse when you step out on the terrace.
In July and August the heather blooms and covers everything in wonderful purple, it’s just beautiful.
A short walk from the chalet lies the preserved ruin of The Dun Beag Broch, where you’ll walk in the footsteps of the early iron age settlers on Skye. From here you have a spectacular views of both mountain ranges of The Cuillins and Macleods Tables as well as Loch Braccadale.
