Our Story

We settled on this croft in Torrin together in 1994 and spent the first 5 years living in a static caravan.  Once we'd built and moved into our house in 1999 we began doing self catering holiday accommodation in the caravan.  Since then we've added other accommodations around the croft to cater for the range of guests we realised wanted to come and stay in this fantastic part of the Isle of Skye. As well as the Hobbit Houses we also offer static caravan, apartment and bunkhouse accommodations to welcome single travellers, couples, families, walking groups, Geology students, photographers, kayakers, climbers, wildlife enthusiasts, bird watchers.  We've had wedding parties and 'special' birthday celebrations. 

For details of our other accommodations please go to;

There's something for everyone in this part of the island and we enjoy sharing our little bit of paradise with our guests and can point you in the right direction depending on what you want to do while you are here in South Skye.

'There are no such things as strangers, only friends we haven't met yet'
See you soon!

Located a short walk away from the Hobbit House is a separate building suitable for drying wet gear and storing bicycles.

Shops, laundrette, bank, post office and medical facilities are available in Broadford.

Paul and Becky, who live nearby, ensure that everything is maintained to a high standard and can be called upon to provide assistance to ensure your stay is enjoyable.

There is a strict non-smoking policy within the Hobbit House.



We provide self catering accommodation in the small village of Torrin on the beautiful Isle of Skye.   Situated between the Black and Red Cuillins, Torrin makes an ideal base for those wanting to get away from it all and be surrounded by beauty and wildlife or for those wishing to explore one of Skye’s most scenic areas.

Possible activities include boat trips from Elgol to the heart of the Cuillins or from Broadford to see the seals on Pabay, lazing on or exploring beaches and a wide range of walks and climbs on and around Blaven and the other nearby Skye hills and mountains.

The area also provides opportunities to enjoy the natural wildlife including otters, birds and deer as well as a wide variety of flora and fauna.
