Auld Orwell Cottage logo

Your self-catering cottage “home from home” in the Highlands, on Waternish, the place to be on the Isle of Skye.

From its elevated position over Lochbay on the beautiful Isle of Skye, Auld Orwell Cottage overlooks the pretty fishing village of Stein and beyond to unforgettable views and dramatic sunsets across the Minch where, on the horizon, you can see the Outer Isles of the Hebrides.

Auld Orwell cosy loungeA unique, deceptively spacious, traditional stone cottage offering comfort in flexible accommodation for 2 – 6 people. Sympathetic restoration has provided all the benefits of modern living whilst retaining the historic character of the original croft cottage.


Thank you for our unforgettable stay. The house is perfect and the scenery out of this world…
