Situated at the front of Seaward BnB with spectacular views of the garden/croft area and the sea. You can usually see the ferry from Uig in the distance and on a clear day you can also see the hills of Harris/Lewis in the distance.
Wildlife is a plenty and the area is super quiet only broken by the weather (sometimes high winds) or the occasional helicopters or low flying jets.....
There are two single beds (one is softer than the other so you can have a choice!). Egyptian Cotton or 100% cotton bedding is used. There are double size duvets and 2 pillows per bed (anti allergy where possible). Extra if needed are in the large cupboard.
NB: There is a blind as well as curtains in this room as the sun comes up very early and goes down late during the summer months.
MIDGES and wee beasties: Best to keep the windows closed otherwise they will invade and may well bite you! Midges are usually quite small so difficult to see BUT they pack a mighty large bite! As Seaward is in the countryside, other wee beasties may try to get inside through open windows etc so I also tend to keep upturned beakers over the plug holes as well!
Towels - Either Egyptian Cotton or 100% Cotton - if you need more - just ask the owner.
Dressing Gowns and Disposable Slippers if a/v are in the room.
Bedside tables with drawers, lights and clock/radio.
Flat Screen TV with DVD set up on the wall. There is a good selection of DVD’s and books to borrow in the Dining Room.
Large storage cupboard with lots of hangers/hanging space etc. Electric fan and heater, collapsible suitcase holder, 2 x collapsible chairs and table for your use. You can use these in the garden area as well. There are extra pillows if needed. Please ask the owner should you need something else though!
Mirrors: various around the room and in the en suite.
Heating etc: wall mounted oil heater (usually on for half an hour or more during the summer months around 07.30am) Please turn it OFF it you prefer.

WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU:
Skye has all kinds of weather even in summer so best bring casual clothes, sweater, good walking boots/socks. Wellies if you have space. Waterproof outer wear. Midge spray eg SMIDGE. If you fancy dressing up that’s fine but casual is acceptable most places in Skye. Binoculars, camera, maps, cell ‘phone, a torch etc but during summer it never really gets dark!
