The most amazing private island hideaways in the UK and Ireland

The most amazing private island hideaways in the UK and Ireland

This tiny four-acre island is dominated by the lighthouse and the four-bedroom cottage over which it towers. You’ll have the run of the entire island here. The house looks out over the sea and across to Skye at every available opportunity – the bedrooms take in the views of the craggy Black Cuillin Mountains from squishy beds. All the boxes of a traditional Scottish cottage stay are ticked: the house has wood-burning stoves for chillier evenings and there’s a range oven for whipping up suppers in the sea-facing kitchen. Happily, just across the water back on Skye, there’s also a traditional Highland pub for those days when you’d rather have a brilliant chef dish up steaming bowls of locally caught mussels and fresh-as-can-be oysters.
