Gramarye Cottage is located in the rural crofting township of Peinachorran, tucked just below the road as the Peinachorran sign is passed, facing the stunning view out to the Isle of Raasay and the mainland beyond. Set within a mature terraced garden of a third of an acre the cottage has access through a garden gate to the shore line with a vista that ranges from the sandy beaches of An Aird, to the extinct volcano on Raasay, the wildness of Scalpay and the magnificence of the Red Cuillin.
Portree, the largest town on the island, is only ten minutes by car offering supermarkets, two petrol stations, banks, shops and a Tourist Information Centre.
From the road, a sweeping path of gradually descending broad steps leads to the front door of the cottage and into the sun room. This warm and cosy space, equipped with a wood burning stove offers unparalleled views across the sea. The sunroom is the perfect place to start and finish your day whilst watching for wildlife with sightings of seals, eagles, porpoises, whales and otters all having been recorded.
The recently installed kitchen, fully equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine, fridge freezer, microwave and slow cooker, features a solid oak floor and sweeping sea views.
The modern bathroom features a toilet, sink and over the bath shower. A tumble dryer is also tucked in an alcove under the stairs.
The sitting room with stunning views, solid oak floor, exposed stone wall and contemporary wood burning stove is a relaxing place to sit at any time of the day. The Cottage offers free wifi, an iPod docking station, radio, flat screen TV, and DVD HDD.
Upstairs, the traditional "V" lined walls and ceilings have been retained in keeping with the original character of the croft. A spacious landing leads to two light and airy bedrooms, a double and a twin, with fantastic sea views. Down and feather duvets and pillows are offered in the double bedroom (hypo-allergenic bedding is available on request) and both rooms are attractively furnished with Laura Ashley linens.
One small well behaved dog is welcome, please notify us at the time of booking. We request that they remain downstairs, stair gates can be provided if required. We will however need to make a charge of £20 per stay to cover thorough cleaning of the cottage following your departure. This ensures our next guests find no trace of pets having been there.
When making your booking please let us know if you would like the travel cot or stair gates set up before your arrival.
Gramarye Cottage is heated by night storage heaters and wall mounted panel heaters throughout.
Please note that access to the cottage is via a stone stepped pathway and is not suitable for people unsure on their feet.
