A ruin for over one hundred years, this former fisherman's shelter (which is what Bothy means in Gaelic) sits on a Laird's estate dating back to the late 1700s, nestled on the water's edge on the handsome Isle of Skye. Today, Corry Bothy has been lovingly restored by its owners and turned into a beautiful dog friendly abode for couples. Blending the traditional with the modern, there's plenty of windows to make the most of the gorgeous views whilst underfloor heating throughout and a large wood burner means you'll always be toasty warm, whatever the weather. Situated close to the village of Broadford, this wonderful retreat is perfectly situated to explore the simply epic beauty of Skye, whether you're hiking around the Old Man of Storr, marvelling at the Fairy Pools, taking a boat trip to spot sea eagles or enjoying a tipple at one of the islands' three whiskey distilleries.


There are two lovely spots to choose from when it comes to relaxing. The main sitting room boasts a gorgeous wood burning stove with a sofa made for two and some occasional chairs. There's also a cute desk too should you need to catch up on any work (we don't recommend it!) or if the wild beauty of Skye inspires you to get writing. In addition, there's more seating in the entrance hall, with floor-to-ceiling glass windows that overlook the garden and trees. Here you'll find to sumptuous chairs - the perfect spot to curl up with a book - plus a radio with Bluetooth, games, books, lanterns and binoculars to keep you entertained.


The spacious, jaw-droppingly lovely kitchen/dining room with huge windows, exposed stone walls and high wooden vaulted ceiling makes this spot the heart of the home. The compact yet fully equipped kitchen has wonderful views along shoreline and comes complete with an induction hob, electric oven, dishwasher, microwave, and the all-important espresso machine. In addition, a washing machine tucked away in the entrance hall cupboard.

Fish and seafood lovers can make the most of deliveries of fresh fish direct to the door - details of the local fisherman are left for you - for the ultimate boat-to-plate experience - yum!

Enjoy long, leisurely meals at the vintage dining table which dates back to the 1930's, all the while gazing out over the sea. Alternatively, snuggle up on one of the window seats with a drink in one hand and binoculars in the other - bliss!


The cosy bedroom with beautiful wooden vaulted ceiling is suitably snug for blissful nights. Adorned with a stunning wooden super king sleigh bed, it's generously covered with luxurious linens and tactile throws and cushions to ensure a deep sleep every time. There's a vintage wardrobe to store clothes, bedside tables plus a great Velux window - perfect for letting in the morning light or for stargazing at night. A TV is tucked away should you fancy watching a night-time film.


The gorgeous bathroom with exposed stone wall is just a delight, with a huge walk in shower/wet room area with large rainfall shower - perfect for wake-me-up showers in the morning. There's also a sumptuous bath, just made for deep soaks after a long day exploring and hiking amongst the mountains. We just love the floor to ceiling windows plus there's a door to the private garden where local plants, flowers and birds can entertain you whilst you bathe.

In the Area

Skye has to be one of Scotland's most exquisite islands and which has inspired many notable people, from Agatha Christie to Virginia Woolf, with its wild beauty. One thing is for sure, you'll not want for things to do, whether you're a keen walker, a foodie or a wildlife lover (or a mixture of all three!). If you love to explore on foot, make sure to bring your walking boots and experience the iconic Old Man of Storr, gaze in delight at The Quiraing (bring your camera!) whilst the more adventurous and experienced cab climb the Cullin. If you're more of a salty sea dog, there are plentiful boat trips, whether it's spotting sea eagles, whale watching or fishing whilst a swim in the sea is a must. Other places of note are the Fairy Glen, the Fairy Pools (take a dip if you dare!) and Dunvegan Castle. As you would expect, there's a host of amazing restaurants to try, whilst whisky lovers should visit the three distilleries: Talisker, Torabhaig and Raasay (which is a 25-minute ferry ride away).

A warm Hebridean welcome awaits you at our dog-friendly romantic retreat, nestled on the Isle of Skye's seashore with enchanting mountainous vistas...

We know how gorgeous our retreats are, but don’t just take our word for it – here’s what previous guests say about Corry Bothy:

It was perfect, everything we’d hoped it would be.

What a beautifully presented property with spectacular views, the owners are so helpful we had a truly wonderful time.

A wonderful spacious cottage that is designed to the highest standards. Incredible loch side position with panoramic views. Very special!

Simply put, the Corry Bothy, and the incredible scenery it looks out on are enchanting.

From the wildlife, the sea, rocks, tides, cloud, rain, shine, and shadowed hills. Just stunning.

You'll enjoy.

A great location for a stay on Skye. Stunning views from the Bothy, a delight to watch the otters, seals and seabirds from the comfort of the kitchen window seats. A comfy retreat whatever the weather.

We had a wonderful stay. Beautiful location and such a beautifully decorated and restored Bothy.

What a week! Splendid location, wildlife, walks

A perfect retreat in a great location, with easy access to all areas of Skye and local amenities. Everything you need is here and with a considerate welcome pack, this really is the perfect place to stay!.

A magical stay at Corry Bothy!

Our third visit to Corry Bothy. We absolutely love this perfect place. We were blessed with beautiful weather for most of our stay and finally got to see two otters playing on our last morning. We have booked again for next year!

Corry Bothy is amazing, and beautifully furnished to a very high standard with spectacular views!

We had high expectations that were comfortably exceeded. Such a beautifully decorated and thoughtfully equipped homestay. Sitting at the kitchen window watching the otters was the added bonus.

Stunning location and views are out of this world! A truly beautiful retreat!

Corry Bothy is amazing; the views across the water are incredible, and we've spent many hours just gazing out through the kitchen window. There are plenty of beautiful walks leaving immediately from the Bothy, and even the walk to the supermarket or cafe in town is a pleasure. The house is very well equipped, warm and cosy. We were here in November 2022, and booked again immediately for 2023.

A wonderful location on the edge of the loch, close enough to the town which has everything you need (even in winter) but still blissfully isolated

A truly well built, remote but yet not remote, idyllic, romantic, quiet, panoramically stunning, cosy joy. X

This retreat had wonderful views from the large window.

A lovely retreat. Views, interior and comfort were brilliant.

The cottage had fabulous views of the bay and hills. We watched Sea Otters diving for fish as well as seals cruising through the bay. It was very peaceful with the light on the mountains changing all the time. The road to Elgol was beautiful. We felt we had found truly Wild Britain.

Stunning cottage, stunning location and surprisingly stunning weather. A truly stunning holiday.

Its a great retreat, comfortable, warm and relaxing with ever changing stunning views!

Thank you for a wonderful week in your spectacular and comfortable home.

The Bothy is exceptional - we felt so lucky to experience the views, and the luxury !

We had the most wonderful, restful and restorative week. Adored the peace and tranquillity.

What a wonderful, welcoming, and beautiful place to unwind. We had a lovely few days taking in the beauty of Skye.

We had a wonderful stay at Corry Bothy. It is so cosy, charming and comfortable.

The perfect place to stay whilst exploring the island.

A wonderful stay, so peaceful, comfortable and relaxing. We loved the view from the kitchen window, a Scottish treasure!

Beautiful Bothy, we wish we could pick it up and take it home!

A wonderful stay for the first stop on our honeymoon. Corry Bothy was exactly what we needed for a relaxing stay.

What a wonderful, tranquil place to stay.

This is a great location and has been restored really well allowing great views of the bay to watch the boats, birds, otters & seals. A lot of walks within easy reach and easy access to visit other great spots on the island.

A very comfortable and stylish cottage in the wonderfully scenic setting of Broadford Bay with views over to the Skye bridge and Highlands in the distance from the large windows 4 metres from high tide! Walking distance into Broadford and the last building on the walk to Irishman’s Point. Very warm and very solid - a great place to weather out a storm enjoying the view and weather. Great place to discover Skye from. Decent sized supermarket, petrol station, shops and restaurants 5 minutes.

Fantastic place to stay. The Bothy is beautiful, very quiet with views across the bay. One of the best places we have stayed.

Look no further! Perfection!

Beautiful, comfortable Bothy in a stunning location.

A lovely place to stay, great location off the beaten track yet close enough to shops and restaurants. Everything so carefully thought out to ensure a stress free stay, quality appliances and wonderful bathroom.

Corry Bothy is the perfect retreat to get away from the rat race and soak up life on the wonderful Isle of Skye. With a window on the bay, you can watch the otters and seals right in front of you. From the wonderful welcome pack to the useful tips on places to visit, eat and things to do - this is the epitome of a boutique retreat - we will be returning!

Stunningly beautiful, exceptionally designed with wonderful hosts. Pure relaxation watching the birds, seals and otters. Magical memories were made.

Absolutely beautiful setting and the bothy itself was first class accommodation. A stunning design.

Beautiful cottage and attention to detail was excellent. The views from the Bothy were exceptional and the garden was so pretty. Great location to explore the Isle of Skye with Broadford facilities on the doorstep. Exceptionally clean and contact with the owner really helpful. Thank you!

Absolutely stunning views!!!
