Wonderful little cottage!

What a wonderful and cosy cottage! Perfectly equipped (from kitchen to bathroom) and situated in the heart of Skye - a perfect base to explore the stunning nature of Skye. Excellent for families !

Highly recommended!

Absolutely wonderful!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was so warm & cozy. It was more than we could have ever imagined. The view out the large picture windows is breath taking, We hated to leave in the mornings for our excursions. We enjoyed preparing our meals in the spacious kitchen. The kitchen was equipped with everything that you could need. They even had tea, sugar and spices to offer. The washer and dryer were a very nice asset. The house is located in a very nice location to undertake any excursion on the island. We were very well taken care. Every detail was to the letter. Out of all the places we have stayed in our travels this was definitely the BEST!!!! We would recommend this wonderful house to all our friends and family.

Amazing Place

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here a couple of times and can't recommend it enough. It's a real home from home, you'll not be short of anything you need. The place itself is tranquil and seems to have it's own micro-climate.

Excellent value for money.

No doubt it won't be long before we're booking again.

We felt like home

  • 5 of 5

We really felt like home in this cozy cottage. Everything was fine and as described. The facilities were excellent and the kitchen was well-equipped, including many useful supplies. The service was quick and good.

The location of the house a bit north of Portree is perfect to explore most parts of the magnificent Isle of Skye. A car is recommended. I definitely would recommend staying there.

This traditional croft house, recently modernized and spacious is situated six miles north of Portree, the capital of Skye, which offers many amenities, excellent restaurants and pubs. There are lots to see and do such as mountain biking, kayaking, sea trips, pony trekking or walking/climbing. The Golden Eagle and White- tailed Sea Eagle are found in this locality. The house sits in over a quarter of acre of secure garden and is situated within the Trotternish Peninsula. The famous Trotternish ridge which is one of the finest traverses in the U.K. is in this general area. The Cuillin Range of Mountains which are spectacular and are a mecca for climbers and walkers can be seen most days from the house and are approximately 28kms away. Perhaps you may just enjoy travelling round and taking in the breathtaking scenery. Historically Skye has an interesting past with lots to interest the historian. Similarly its unique landscape is of great interest to geologists. In a recent newspaper travel article Skye was the only Scottish Island to be featured in their guide to ten of the best Great British Islands Some of the filming of the Sci-fiction movie 'Prometheus' was done in the immediate area.
