Thistles on Skye Information


Luxurious houses with high end kitchens Situated on a traditional croft in Sleat, South Skye, we are ideally situated for the Skye Bridge or for the Armadale to Mallaig ferry. We offer a great base from which to explore the magical island of Skye. We have tried to make these the best self catering experiences on the island by incorporating everything that we would like to have when we stay somewhere. Our en-suites are beautifully finished with double ended baths and rain showers and you can then relax in our dressing gowns and complimentary slippers. Both houses have amazing sea views. Thistles has two beautifully designed en-suite bedrooms with panoramic views over the Sound of Sleat to Loch Hourn and the Knoydart peninsula whilst The Croft has a luxury ensuite bedroom and separate dressing room, plus a second bijou bathroom with uninterrupted views over the sea. Both houses have aga wood burning stoves for cosy winter nights. Thistles has a wonderful aga which heats the entire downstairs whilst The croft has tradition limestone flags with underfloor heating downstairs.

Booking Terms and Conditions


Thistles on Skye is on a croft above Cruard Bay which is fairly steeply sloping. There are stairs in the property and so it is not suitable for anyone who cannot manage these.


A car is recommended when staying at the property
  • Road from The Skye Bridge (16.0 miles)
    Cross the Bridge, at roundabout take 3rd exit for Broadford, Portree. Follow this road for ~ 5 miles. You will come to a 40 mile limit part & will pass the restaurant “Red Skye” on LHS. At the end of this long straight stretch the road will bend sharply to the right and at this point there is a turnoff on left for the A851, signposted Armadale, Isleornsay. Take turnoff & follow road for 8 miles. Turn left for Isleornsay, take turn for Camuscross. We will send final detail by email!
  • Boat from Armadale Ferry (8.0 miles)
    Take the only road the A851 and head North – drive for around 6-7 miles. You will very clearly see the sign post to turn right for Isleornsay. Take this turn, over small bridge. Follow signpost for Camuscross. Continue for .6mile turn right up hill at derelict croft just before Cruard Bay. Look for our sign on top road
