Alan's House, Staffin, is a cosy semi-detached cottage on the Trotternish Peninsula with easy access to Staffin Bay where you can sometimes find dinosaur footprints and fossils. The holiday home has a twin and a double bedroom with a family bathroom, lounge and kitchen / dining. It is perfectly located for exploring the Trotternish Peninsula with numerous walks in the area as well as the Isle of Skye and the Isle of Raasay.

Lovely property in the best location on the island. Lots of wildlife, beautiful scenery and close to two of the most famous walks on Skye - the old man of storr, and the quiraing. This was our 2nd visit to Alans house and won't be our last. Myself and my other half are now considering Skye as a permanent residence for ourselves. Wish us luck!

We took both Alan's and sorley's cottages, they were perfect for our stay. However we only used Alan's house for sleeping and used sorley's far more often. But the cottages are almost identical, and are both lovely.

We loved everything about our stay at Alan's House. The only thing we missed was the personal contact at the beginning of our stay. It wasn't like our last AirBnb stays in other places. Nevertheless, we still loved it. Thank you very much!

We believe Alan's House is an excellent value and an excellent base to explore the stunningly beautiful surroundings on the Isle of Skye and Trotternish Peninsula. There is certainly enough space for 2 people, with all of the amenities one would typically need for a comfortable stay, especially if you are like us -- we use it as a base from which we can go explore the beautiful surroundings all day and do not actually typically spend a lot of our time there. I suppose one may find more luxurious lodging but that is not we want/need for our trips to Skye. We just want a place that is clean, with enough space/amenities that we can rest comfortably each night and wake up each morning ready to go exploring. Alan's House is a great location for that. And I should also mention the stunning view of the Quiraing that you get out the front window, especially late in the day/evening as the sun is setting. We love it there!



An ideal base for dinosaur hunting

I booked Alan's cottage in Staffin as a base for a couple of days hunting dinosaur footprints with my 6 year old grandson and we were not disappointed. The location was perfect for Staffin beach where we discovered the footprints and paddled in the crystal clear waters with the little fish. It was ideal to come back to the cottage and get the wee one cleaned up and we chose to eat out at the picnic table where we watched all kinds of bird life. We also could explore more of the island and we sampled some excellent pies at the Skye pie shop and got e everything we needed from the local store. All in all a great couple of days.
