If you’re looking for a breathtaking and serene holiday destination, look no further than the Isle of Skye in Scotland!
Recently, I had the pleasure of staying in one of my amazing clients’ properties ‘Chasing the Moon Skye‘ with my family and father-in-law. Chasing the Moon is a beautiful holiday let situated right on the edge of a cliff overlooking the ocean with a stunning mountain range on the horizon.
The views are absolutely breathtaking, the house was possibly more comfortable than anywhere I’ve ever stayed before and I would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone looking for an unforgettable experience in one of the most exciting locations in the UK.
Our First Impressions of Chasing the Moon Skye
When we first arrived at the property, we were absolutely blown away by the incredible location.
The house is situated on a cliff edge, surrounded by mountains and there are uninterrupted views of the ocean for as the eye can see. We felt like we were in our own little world and it was just so peaceful and relaxing tucked away from civilisation.
The property itself is carefully designed and has a unique character which you feel as soon as you walk inside.
It’s been decorated to a very high standard and has everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay, power showers, a great coffee machine, a stand-alone bathtub in the bedroom and local luxury products of the Arran Aromatics range.
It’s spacious so there’s plenty of room for everyone to spread out and relax.
The Sleeping Arrangements
There are three large bedrooms in the property, all of which are beautifully decorated and very comfortable.
The master bedroom has a king size bed and an en-suite bathroom. There is also a twin room and a double room, both of which have also have en-suite bathrooms (so handy for the kids!).
The Living Area
The living area is light and spacious with a panoramic view overlooking the sea and there’s plenty of comfortable seating. With a log burner, it’s the perfect place to snuggle up in front of the fire with a good book in the winter and there was a good supply of logs for the occasion.
The kitchen is extremely well-equipped and has everything you need to cook up a storm, including a dishwasher which is always handy on holiday.
There’s also a small laundry room off the kitchen, which we made use of with the kids on muddy walks!
There’s a large flat-screen TV (not that we used it once and I feel it would be a crime to use with a view like that!), and there’s also a decent sound system that hooks up to your Bluetooth on your phone. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need to cook up a storm!
The Breathtaking Views!
As I mentioned, the views from Chasing the Moon Skye are just breathtaking and are one of my favourite aspects of the Chasing the Moon experience.
There are huge windows in the living area so you can wake up and drink your coffee to those stunning views every morning which gives you a perfect start to the day and clears the mind!
The Perfect Location for Exploring Skye
The property is situated in an ideal location for exploring all that Skye has to offer. There are plenty of walks and hikes nearby and it’s only a short drive to the nearest town, Portree.
The dinosaur footprints at Staffin are a must-see and the Fairy Pools at Glenbrittle are a great day out!
If you haven’t got children with you and you fancy a good hike Brothers point is nearby and the famous Storr is just a short drive up the road.
A brief walk from the house itself, down to the bay and you will spot seals basking on the rocks below – an unforgettable sight that the children enjoyed. The place is known for whales and dolphins not that we saw any but we’re told they are spotted frequently!
The Perfect Family Retreat
We had our 3 children with us (a 3-year-old, 2-year-old and 1-year-old) and they absolutely loved it!
They made friends with the sheep, they went exploring and had so much fun. It really is the perfect place to bring your family for a relaxing and memorable break away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Having known Maggie for a few years now, one thing I know about her is that she doesn’t settle for mediocre and this comes out in the experience she has prepared with this wonderful accommodation.
From the moment you arrive, you are made to feel so special and catered for with everything having been thought of to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
All the details have been taken care of so you can just sit back, relax and take in that incredible view.
I cannot recommend Chasing the Moon Skye enough – it is a special place that connects you with nature and I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to stay there.
A huge thanks from us all Maggie for being such a fantastic host, it’s hosts like you that are the reason I took this business in the direction of serving the tourism and hospitality industry, to serve you to help you better serve others.
Maggie understands how the little details make all the difference, how hospitality is about caring for your guests with the luxury soaps, the super comfy beds and how going the extra mile leaves a lasting impression!
