Welcome to The Old Mill on
The Old Mill Cottage, Kilmaluag, Trotternish, Isle of Skye
Situated at the north end of Trotternish on the Isle of Skye by a small river in the village of Kilmaluag, the cottage overlooks Loch Kilmaluag and has the ancient Trotternish Hills to the rear. Your accommodation is just a few yards off a quiet road with its own parking surrounded by rolling hills, the loch and sea, with beautiful views.
The Old Mill self catering cottage is a modern building with two of the four rooms fully en-suite. It is easily accessible from mainland Scotland via the Skye Bridge (now toll-free) and two ferries (Mallaig-Armadale and Glenelg-Kylerhea) and is just half an hour from the island capital, Portree. It is also only a short distance from the ferry terminal of Uig with regular crossings to the Outer Isles.
Breathtaking views amidst the Scottish Highlands on the magical Isle of Skye await you (see our local area slideshow). The Old Mill Self Catering Cottage really is the ultimate "get-away-from-it-all" Highland experience, yet there is an abundance of activities and interesting places to visit.
The Old Mill Cottage is open all year.

A warm welcome awaits you .... or Failte! as they say in the Gaelic.
There is a patio with table and chairs at the side of the cottage, next to the river. The river is good for wild brown trout fishing, so you can barbecue your own catch! Full barbecue equipment and fishing rods are provided. It is a delightful peaceful spot to enjoy the sight and sound of the river and the birds. A wide variety of birds, from bluetits to buzzards can often be seen.
The river behind the cottage is fascinating. There is much to explore and enjoy near the cottage itself. It is very easy to walk along the river bank. The river extends 2 miles into the mountains, and about 500 yards down to the sea. Otters and seals can be seen at the mouth of the river. There is an abundance of wild flowers by the river. The water from the river used to power the mill, and you can still see the original water track.
