Allt Slapin, Torrin, is a traditional holiday cottage with outstanding views across Loch Slapin to Blaven and Clach Glas. This self-catering cottage has 3 bedrooms and can sleep up to 6 people. Allt Slapin is perfectly located for exploring the Isle of Skye, Raasay, Lochalsh and Glenelg.

Property is rather run down and more basic than what photos show and cottage warm and comfortable .

We had a great week holiday at Allt Slapin in Torrin on the Isle of Skye. It had a real feel of being in a remote location - away from the day trippers on Skye. Torrin is a small hamlet, reached by a single track road (with numerous passing points) which leads eventually to Elgin. The cottage is not far from the Loch, slightly raised, and with a stream passing by the side of it. It is reached by an alarmingly steep untarmac'ed track, which took a while to get used to going up and down. The views are stunning all around - 360 degrees. From the front (through the kitchen window) you see one set of hills; from the back (through the sitting room and main bedroom window) you see the Cuillins and the loch. Sheep and cattle graze freely, and we enjoyed seeing them trying to get into the garden to munch the tasty grass, and being chased out by a local farmer. The other great point of the location is that it is near the Blue Shed Cafe - great for lunches and cakes. Otherwise, one has to drive out of Torrin for meals. The cottage is a bungalow and all the rooms are spacious. There were some DVDs to watch and an interesting collection of local information/ guidebooks, and a few eclectic novels to browse. Overall, the condition and cleanliness of the cottage was on the poor side - the bathroom definitely needs updating (eg wobby loo seat) and the door to the 2nd bedroom was falling to bits and almost trapped our daughter in the room. The main bedroom was well decorated and modernised. Overall, the location and spaciousness more than made up for the downsides.



Amazing views from living room over Loch. Greeted each morning by cows and sheep around the cottage

A true break away from it all with no wifi or phone signal.

Was fantastic to have no distraction and only to enjoy our surroundings, of beautiful scenery and wildlife.
