Surrounded by 87 acres of wild land, with its own seashore, built in 1790 Corry is a historic house in a world of its own. One of Skye's oldest and most beautiful homes, hidden by trees, the house sits a hundred feet from the shore of Broadford Bay. The rest of the treasures of Skye are in easy reach, and Broadford and its restaurants are a walk or a short drive away.
Corry is an adored family home, with a personality, and a story, of its own. While it is lovingly prepared to welcome guests, it is also an old house, well-worn with highland life.
This is one of the two rooms on the second floor of our left wing (its sister is listed as the 'cosy room in historic highland home by the sea' ). The bedroom has a lovely antique bed with views to the woodlands behind the house. There is a small ensuite bathroom, with a shower. The room is approached down a short corridor from the main entrance hall and up a short flight of stairs.
Tea and whisky on arrival, a sheepskin hot water bottle for cooler nights; there is Skye soap in the bathroom and a kettle and everything needed to make a cosy cup of tea.

The Corry estate, with its woods and fields and coast is available for all guests. Guests are also welcome to use the sitting room, where a continental breakfast is also available from 8 a.m. This has cosy armchairs to curl up in after a day outside. There is also a veranda for those who would like to sit outside and watch the natural world.
Kayaks are available for guest use.
Échanges avec les voyageurs
There is always someone at Corry. We are delighted to answer questions and are delighted to answer questions and to share recommendations,but there is a lot of work to do on the estate (and dogs to walk) so we may not be always on hand in the house. We provide a great guide to special local places, and the sitting/breakfast room is full of maps and local travel information.
Depending on which of us is in the house at the time of your stay, in addition to English, we speak Gaelic, Chinese, French, German and a little bit of Italian and Spanish (and if the speaker of the relevant language is away, they can always be found on the phone).
While the Lodge is lovingly prepared to welcome guests, it is a very old house, well-worn with highland life and where the wild outdoors meets the settled life.
We have many visitors from around the world (and travel a lot ourselves) so we keep adaptor plugs available in the house (and hope that guests leave them for others to use).
We have our own guide to the special places on the estate, and across Skye, which is shared with guests. We are happy to make recommendations on restaurants - early booking is advised.
There is a medical centre within walking distance from the Lodge as well as a hospital (with a helipad) for any emergencies (the helipad is often called upon to evacuate distressed mountaineers but is available for all medical emergencies).
We have two dogs: a large Scottish deerhound and a small corgi (all the way from Beijing). While the house can be busy in the day, in the evening and at night, the main house is a haven of peace and quiet.
The house is an oasis of calm and we ask all of our guests to be thoughtful about noise in the evenings and early mornings.
We have two dogs already in residence so we are not able to take additional pets.
Corry Lodge is non-smoking. Smokers can smoke outside but we ask everyone to be vigilant with regard to fire hazards. Skye can usually be counted on to deliver some rain but summers are increasingly dry.
Most of our guests find that the wild landscape and fresh air send them to sleep fairly early. Whatever the evening hour, we ask all of our guests to keep conversations low so as not to disturb others.
Parking is available at the rear of the house; we ask our guests to park with consideration for other vehicles and to keep the level of evening conversations low in areas around the house, again as consideration for other guests.
Corry Lodge is also home to Corrymhor and Kyle, our Scottish deerhound and our older corgi (who comes all the way from Beijing). Both are friendly and love affection but from time to time, when the house is full, may be grateful for a bit of space.
We are not able to accept children under the age of 10. We are able to find additional beds for children above that age (there is an additional charge).
There is a late fee of UK 10 for late arrivals (after 9 pm) which increases to UK 50 for arrivals after midnight.
The Corry estate is a beautiful area of unspoiled nature. We ask our guests to treat it with love and respect.
