A warm welcome awaits you at The Hirsel, a home from home in the quiet village of Ord in south Skye.

Nestling above the shores of Loch Eishort with stunning views across the loch to the Cuillin Ridge and Bla Bheinn, the Hirsel provides relaxed and comfortable accommodation for your holiday. The four-mile (6.5km) drive along the single-track road sets the scene for the views that await you on arrival, but the location also provides a central base for exploring Skye itself and a little further afield, Plockton, Eilean Donan Castle and Glenelg. A day trip to the Small Isles on the CalMac ferry is also another option on your to-do list.

Whatever the weather, the Hirsel provides many options for you to spend your time whether it be exploring, kayaking, wildlife watching or even if you just want to coorie in, there is a smart tv with Netflix to catch up with good movies.

We welcome well-behaved doggie guests; they need a holiday too! Please check with us when booking.

With so much to see and do, a week or more will never be enough, but you will be assured of a wonderful holiday and return home feeling relaxed and invigorated. Come and stay awhile and experience it for yourselves. Eileen and Rob are very happy to help you plan your stay to make the most of your time on the Isle of Skye. You will be most welcome!


The Hirsel provides light and airy accommodation for up to 5 guests in two bedrooms, with comfortable beds, fluffy towels, and crisp linens.  The open plan lounge area offers wonderful views across Loch Eishort where you can often spot dolphins and otters so bring your binoculars. The beach is only a two-minute walk where you can experience the magical sunsets and spot the wildlife or even have a swim in the bay. We have endeavoured to provide a home from home for you to enjoy with everything you will need during your stay with us. 

All you need to bring is yourselves, food and personal items!
