Isle of Skye Accommodation

Luxury Self Catering

Air an Oir is a purpose built, secluded, one bed-roomed property offering luxury self catering accommodation with panoramic sea views in Portree, Isle of Skye.

The property is tucked away on a crag overlooking the sea at the end of a long private drive. Being in Portree, the main town on the Isle of Skye, it benefits from being within walking distance to shops, restaurants and other services, yet its location also offers guests with frequent sightings of otters, seals, sea-eagles and other wildlife. Recently, we have received nightly visits from a pine marten as well as a young red deer.

Built of Siberian larch and with large treble glazed windows to maximise views, Air an Oir has been designed to very high standards and has a contemporary coastal interior design theme.

It is the perfect place for a honeymoon or a complete rest at one with the landscape and nature.

What our guests have said…

  • Could not possibly recommend highly enough.

    Such a wonderful place with incredible attention to detail. Already looking forward to my return.

    Great Britain
  • Excellent. An amazing place! 

    The best room I’ve ever been in!

  • We've stayed in places all around the world but nowhere has made us feel the way Air an Oir did.

    Angela & Neil went above and beyond for us on our stay. The Chalet is amazing, the bed was extra comfy, breathtaking views and otter watching was great! It exceeded our expectations completely.

  • Most incredible place to stay, and the kindest warm hosts - cannot wait to return already!

    Great Britain
  • 100% Enjoyable!

    Really, everything was fantastic. It is not very easy to find, but with instructions from the owners went well. Communication with them was also very good anyway. Great environment and a lovely house.

  • It was the highlight of our trip.

    Angela and Neil are absolutely lovely, the house is amazing, they thought of everything. I’ve never slept in a bed that comfortable. The view is absolutely gorgeous. We will definitely be back!

  • The whole experience was second to none.

    Highly recommended.

    United Kingdom
  • Brand new house walking distance from the town, super quiet, secluded with a view.

    …The driveway was long which meant we were far from any road noise (not that there would have been any), so it felt like a mountain retreat. 

    This was a brand new building with great amenities, like USB ports by the beds to plug in phone chargers and heated floors in the bathroom.

  • Won't be able to find a better place in the Isle of Skye!

  • A quiet and tranquil haven. 

    Beautifully presented and appointed, complete with a wonderful sea view. A one night stay became three nights!

You otter see this…

One night recently, our car park camera was tripped by two young otters playing. They can often be seen hunting in the bay below the house, along with seals and numerous seabirds. We have regular visits from a variety of wildlife including the occasional red deer.

Pine marten…

Pine martens are elusive animals but one has recently become a nightly visitor to Air an Oir and has been feeding on peanuts and eggs left in our feeder right outside the lounge window. It is also partial to peanut butter and jam sandwiches! This clip was filmed by some guests.

New tune called Air an Oir…

Here you can listen to a specially composed tune by top band Folky MacFolk Face after one of their talented musicians stayed at Air an Oir. Look out for their album of the same name coming out soon!
