The Black Shed Logo

The Black Shed is an architectural award winning, self-catering accommodation based on the Isle of Skye.

Sustainable and ecologically sympathetic holiday accommodation on the Isle of Skye

The Scottish landscape is the perfect antidote to a busy modern life, a chance to slow down, or stop altogether, to connect with the simpler things in life, breathe and relax. 

That’s why we’ve carefully considered every detail within The Black Shed, keeping the interior simple yet tastefully curated so you can unwind and disconnect. Modern appliances and furniture provide efficient functionality where needed. But the inherited, handcrafted and vintage pieces, with their unspoken stories, local art, natural textiles and ceramics, breathe real life into The Black Shed.

Relaxed vacation living

The Black Shed is where you come to slow down and take a vacation from the everyday. It is a sanctuary and a comfortable space that allows you to focus on meaningful connections with the people that are most important to you. 

Open-plan living at the Black Shed offers a variety of individual spaces defined by soft furnishings and well-placed lighting, areas with distinct moods depending on the time of day or the fall of natural light – where you can relax, dine or socialise. Floor-to-ceiling Harris Tweed curtains allow you to choose how to enjoy the space by softly dividing the living space further, creating cosy nooks for a quiet read or afternoon siesta.

Entertainment at The Black Shed is all low-key, but there is WiFi, an Apple TV, plenty of books and a DAB radio in the bedroom.
