The spacious ground floor has two public rooms to the front and a large sun room extension to the rear.  On the first floor there are two double bedrooms and a box room.

The crofting township of Ellishadder is located on the Trotternish Peninsula of Skye, approximately 2 mile south of Staffin and 16 miles north of Portree, the principal town on the island. In Ellishadder itself there is a small museum and the Ellishadder Art Café with the Skye Pie Café located in Culnacnock just a short drive away.

Staffin offers a limited number of facilities, including a community centre housing a small shop, gym, village hall and restaurant, and a further shop with fuel pumps, a primary school and the St Columba Centre.

Portree offers a wide range of facilities including banking facilities, sports facilities, a variety of shops and the only secondary school on the island.

The Trotternish area is popular with walkers and outdoor enthusiasts and is a well-known area for finding fossils along the shore line. Whilst the Kilt Rock, named for its pleated rock formation, is located close by and is popular with tourists who stop to admire the wonderful views across to the island of Rona and the hills of the mainland beyond.
