Spacious and ideally situated
Property was clean and spacious, although there is some room for upgrades such as garden furniture would be nice and removal of waste from past projects which still resides in the garden
Perfect location for the Cullin.
Overlooking a sea loch a short distance uphill from Carbost this is an ideal spot to explore the Cullin and beyond. There are 3 spacious berooms, a living room with woodburner, a decent kitchen and conservatory, more than enough space for us and all clean and tidy with a touch of character. We spent the days walking returning in the evening to enjoy dinner and sleep. The Old Inn Carbost is a very welcome place to quench a thirst with an ale or two and serves meals. Overall I would recommend it.
Property was fab and super spacious
The property was really nice. Unfortunately they building work next door lead to the parking being a little difficult but it did not spoil our stay. The house was warm and comfortable with a huge garden for our doggy. Great location with the Old Inn and fabulous pier within walking distance thank you so much we had a wonderful week and to top it off the sun was out all but 1 day which was an unexpected surprise
Thank you xx
Great bungalow with everything you need.
Very comfortable loved the conservatory.
Loved our time here.
Clean and cosy cottage
We are a couple in mid 30s stayed for a week from Boxing Day and were joined by another couple for the New Year. We arrived late at night and were very pleased to find cottage very warm and cosy inside. Pictures don't do justice to this place, it has plenty of space and really well equipped kitchen. It's a shame the weather was quite vile throughout the trip and we didn't get a chance to enjoy the lovely garden. Great location, 10 min walking distance to amazing Oyster Shed and about 15 to the Old Inn if not keen on cooking or 20 min drive to Portree for something more special. This place is a true gem and I understand the parking situation (mentioned in few reviews) will be resolved shortly however I must say we had no problem parking opposite the house and when joined by our friends for a few days we managed to park 2 cars easily outside. Already thinking about next trip to Isle of Skye in late spring and if decided wouldn't even bother looking anywhere else. Most definitely will be coming back here. If you are after space, privacy and a home away from home this is the place.
Skye is renowned for its climbing and walking and, within close proximity of the Cuillin mountains and McLeod's Tables, Nyumbani is ideally located for this. For those who prefer less energetic exercise there are lovely walks direct from the property, with every chance of encountering a resident otter or seal in the bay as well as the occasional rare sea eagle which are known to nest along this coastline. There are numerous places of interest within easy reach. Talisker Distillery is situated just along the road, and Dunvegan Castle, seat of the Clan MacLeod since the 13th century and the oldest inhabited castle in Scotland is just a short drive away. The pretty harbour town of Portree is about 20 minutes drive away. Set around its natural harbour, with spectacular hills and mountains beyond, Portree is a quintessentially picturesque fishing village. Brightly painted cottages cluster round the active harbour where some of the finest fish restaurants can be found. along with an excellent selection of local shops, pubs and other restaurants as well as a superb leisure centre with 25 metre swimming pool, sauna, steam room and table tennis, all available to visitors.
