We are a family, based in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, who have owned and loved The Anchorage since we bought it as our holiday home 2001. We continue to spend many happy times here and we invite discerning guests to enjoy the house as we do.
You won't find any "please do this, please do that" signs in the house - instead, you'll find our books, pictures and objects d'art as if we had invited you into our home.
We have an excellent housekeeper who does a fantastic job between guests, of ensuring that you have the cleanest of houses and fresh white linen as if you were the only people to have used the house and for you to enjoy as if it were your own.
This website is primarily for friends who'd prefer to book directly with us for a preferential rate. Please check availability first via the live updated calendar at Airbnb, or Tripadvisor where we are proud of our Certificate of Excellence, based on consistent 5* reviews from previous guests. Please feel free to read them HERE, where you can also access the calendar and prices. Then please mail Richard or Charlotte at
WHO WE ARE
The Anchorage is, in our opinion, perfectly located for enjoying all that Skye has to offer. Kyleakin is just five minutes over the beautiful Skye Bridge, rather than having to continue some distance elsewhere on the island after a long drive.
It is more or less centrally placed, providing easy access to all parts of the island in under an hour.
Most people drive, but access by train to Kyle of Lochalsh from Inverness airport, followed by a five minute taxi ride to the house is an unforgettable experience.
Please note that there is parking, slightly tight, for just one car, but free public parking is available within a minute's walk of the house.
