This might be the coolest cottage we have stayed in. It sits high on a hill overlooking the ocean and country side. It is very private and peaceful, but only 20 minutes from Portee, and very close to many of the top sights and hikes. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

The Fischer Family
We never go anywhere twice but for here we may make an exception..
The house is so well furnished you have everything you need.
You can fall so much in love with the views.

The location on the Trotternish peninsular, looking over the Sound of Raasay, the islands of Rona and Raasay to the hills and mountains of Wester Ross is stunning. As is the view to the south where you can see The Storr and the Cuillins. Two minutes from the front door is an old OS Trig point, from where you can see the Island of Lewis.
Once you’ve looked at the views you can go walking in them. After a day of doing that you return to the house which has a warm welcoming feel.
What a place! Time seems to move at a different pace here, ruled by tides and weather! Loved the style and homeliness of “The Moon House!” I leave here relaxed and refreshed, itching to come back again, soon…
5 stars isn’t enough for this amazing wee cottage.
Spending not only Christmas here but our 15 year anniversary was just perfect! We arrived in some stormy weather to a beautifully warm and welcoming accommodation, so many little touches and cleanliness that should be given an extra star.
Our second day, the storm had cleared and we walked from the house up the hill and down to the beach with a dog that was a feeling quite refreshed after a long nap in the car on the way to Skye 🙈 we hunted along the beach for dinosaur footprints and peered over the cliffs, that night we got the MOST BEAUTIFUL views of the nights sky I have ever seen! You can genuinely lay in bed and look out skylight at the milkway!
Over the next days we explored the Quirang and the waterfall which felt like only a few minutes away and then further afield to the Fairy Pools. We have a retriever who loves to swim and she had the pleasure of being joined by a seal in the bay at Staffin whilst we hunted more dinosaur footprints!
Great location and the house was absolutely 5 star level accommodation. Very clean, everything we needed and more with some lovely thoughtful touches. Thank you very much.
Chasing the Moon was a beautiful house set in a magnificent location on Isle of Skye. Waking up to the views every morning was a great way to relax. The house was very clean and the amenities were top notch. Maggie was very helpful and easy to communicate with.
I would definitely stay there again. October 2021
We had an amazing stay at this beautiful and comfortable cottage. The scenery was breathtaking and the location was great for exploring the island. Everything inside was was to the highest standard and directions and check-in made very simple and clear. Overall I couldn’t recommend this stay more highly.
