Enjoy your stay

We’ve tried to make Varis a comfortable practical base from which you can explore the wealth that Skye and Lochalsh offers for those interested in history, wildlife, culture or simply want to immerse themselves in the sheer beauty of the area.

The house has 3 bedrooms, sleeping 6, which can be configured as two super-king doubles and one twin or one super-king double and two twin rooms to suit your requirements.   We can in addition provide a travel cot, highchair etc if you wish to bring a little one.

There is a bathroom and a shower-room.   We will also take up to three dogs at a modest extra charge subject to a few rules.

The house is spacious with a snug/TV room as well as the enormous sitting/dining room with its views across Loch Alsh to Skye, real fire and TV.

We enjoy cooking using the wealth of local ingredients available and we’ve made sure Varis’s kitchen is well equipped with high quality appliances.

The house is a great base for exploring.  As kayakers, we understand the importance of good drying facilities.  The utility room has a washing machine, a tumble dryer, and drying space with additional outdoor and indoor drying space available.  A dehumidifier is available to speed up being ready for the next day’s adventure.

The south facing garden has chairs and tables and plenty of space.

The garage has light and power and guests are welcome to use this for bikes, boats etc.


We will, of course, do our best to accommodate the needs of all guests including those with disabilities.   As the accommodation is on one floor, the house is generally suitable for those with some mobility issues, if they can manage the 5 steps up to the house.  See our Access Statement or call us to discuss your needs.
