Why Andrew Butler chose Totscore

Princes Point Villa is in a superb location. Totescore is just a few minutes drive from the busy wee village of Uig with all it's amenities, and yet is a quiet and tranquil haven with magnificent sea views and no passing traffic... we fell in love with it! Not only is the location stunning, but the Villa is unique and very different from many of the traditional Skye houses. For a start, it is split-level which immediately gives it another dimension and character. For me, the winning features are light and space. There are windows everywhere giving a 360 degree panorama of the wonderful sea and mountain scenery. You don't feel as though you are in a house.... you feel like you are part of the great outdoors..... whilst living in luxury. We love the Villa.... and you will too!

What makes this Villa unique

Princes Point Villa is a great base for exploring not only the Isle of Skye, but also the Outer Isles. The Calmac ferry service runs regularly from Uig just two miles distant from the Villa. You can take a day trip.... or stay for a few nights! But before you venture far, you'll have so much to explore locally on the Trotternish peninsular. There is something for everyone.... of all ages and of all abilities. There's history evident everywhere.... Skye's famous Dinosaur footprints and fossils, Clan History and Castles, Viking Invasions & settlements, Crofting museums, deserted villages, and so much more. We have some of the best walking and climbing in Britain right on the doorstep.... the Old Man of Storr, Quiraing, Trotternish ridge walk and miles of stunning coastline. Come and enj

                                                              This was our second time at this property and definately won't be our last. Set in a stunning location, the property is equally stunning to match it's environment. The property has everything you could possibly need and you feel so at home when you arrive. The owner calls to make you feel welcome and is happy to help with any queries. The property is a perfect base for exploring NE Skye and the Trotternish penninsular is stunning. I can't say enough about how good this property is.

                                                              We had a wonderful stay at Princess Point Villa.

                                                              The house was very beautifully presented, fresh colours and fully equipped with all a family would need. We stayed in the dead of winter and the house was warm through out.

                                                              The host Andy was keen to ensure we had a good stay and left us with contact details should we have any problems or needed some advice.

                                                              We would definitely come back again and again!!!

                                                              Hi Tasnim and...

                                                              a very HAPPY NEW YEAR to you and all the family. I hope this finds you safely home and still enjoying the festive season before it's time for the daily grind again.

                                                              My sincere thanks for your great review of Princes Point Villa. You are so quick... I thought you would still be unpacking.

                                                              It was lovely to meet you and have you as Christmas guests... such a big adventure for you at this time of year.

                                                              You'll need to come back and see Skye in spring or summer with some glorious sunshine and the Island surrounded by clear blue waters.

                                                              Be happy & well and have a fabulous 2018!

                                                              There is plenty of space for everyone fantastic views,absolute peace and quiet the perfect spot to relax and unwind,this time we ventured out on a fabulous boat trip Skye cruises from Uig a Scottish built 1940’s rind netter fishing boat, we have been on many boat trips in Scotland but this as to be the best it was the most relaxed trip ever, we saw white tailed sea eagles,seals and many different sea birds we even saw porpoises, as you travel along the coast line you see the most fantastic waterfalls all this and a bottle of Skye beer what a perfect day thank you captain Tom.

                                                              Greetings from glorious sunny autumnal afternoon here on Skye... long may it last!

                                                              THANK YOU so much for your fabulous and kind review of Princes Point Villa. I know you have fallen in love with this special place... and we have to agree.

                                                              I don't think that you can ever tire of the 'timeless' views and serene surroundings. Sunset over the Outer Hebrides are simply unforgettable.

                                                              Whilst Skye has become even more popular in recent years, there are still many wee corners such as Totescore & Princes Point Villa, which remain untouched by the hustle & bustle even at the busiest holiday times. It's a great place to just stay, relax and recuperate.

                                                              I'm so pleased you enjoyed your 'Skye Cruises' boat trip from Uig and... YES, I'll pass on thanks & regards to 'Captain Tom'.

                                                              My best wishes to you all. Winter well and we'll look forward to seeing you for another 'Escape to Skye' next year.

                                                              Thanks again...

                                                              We loved our stay at Princes Point villa. The house wanted for nothing and the warm welcome we got from Andy was lovely & made for a completely relaxed stay. It being October the weather was very changeable but there was plenty of space for 8 of us and dog to spread out and plenty of entertainment options too. The welcome pack was really thoughtful and a real treat when we arrived. Thank-you Andy for a wonderful stay!

                                                              We had a very warm welcome at the Princess Point Villa.

                                                              There was fresh fruit, chocolates, milk and even bread, all you had to bring was yourself.

                                                              The house is beautifully furnished and has a great view out of the living room upstairs.

                                                              On the downside, what a shame you only discovered 'Black Pudding' at the end of your holiday. The famous Scottish breakfast treat might become the subject of much debate during the 'Brexit' negotiations. If you get desperate, I will post you some.

                                                              Your near neighbours (the sheep & cattle on the croft) miss you & send their love to you in Germany.... as do we!

Inverness is 120 miles (190km) distant and the drive takes about three hours. Distances: Uig Village & Ferry Port (shops, petrol, pubs & restaurants) - 2 miles. Portree (the capital town of Skye) - 15 miles Further Details: Princes Point Villa is situated on the north-eastern peninsula of Skye - called Trotternish. We believe it to be the most beautiful part of the whole island..... it has everything! The coastline is simply stunning from the broad sweep of sands at Staffin Bay to the dizzy heights of the famous cliffs at Kilt Rock. There is something to discover along almost every inch of the coastline and nearly all of it can be walked. The Rubha Hunish headland at Duntulm on the very northern tip of Skye is among the most beautiful and dramatic places in the whole of the british Isles. It's also a great place for whale watching! The 'back-bone' of the peninsula is the Trotternish Ridge which runs from Portree to Duntulm in the north and can be walked for all of it's 20 miles. It is acclaimed as one of the best and most dramatic long walks in Britain. Along the Ridge is the famous rock pinnacle called the 'Old Man of Storr and then above Flodigarry, are the renowned pinnacles of the Quiraing Mountain.... featured in many movies including 'Highlander'. So, the walking is just wonderful and almost unlimited..... dare we say......better than the Cuillins! There is so much to do in Trotternish and so many ways to enjoy your Skye holiday. There are fascinating museums, famous Dinosaur finds and footprints, crofting community recreations, ruined castles, deserted mines and villages.... the list is endless and will keep you more than busy. The two main villages are the ferry port of Uig and the crofting village of Staffin. Both are thriving little communities with pubs, restaurants, wee tea rooms and a warm Highland welcome! The award-winning ales of the Uig brewery are never far away. You can hide away on deserted beaches, watch otters, eagles and dolphins.... take kayak or archery lessons at the Whitewave Outdoor Centre....or just relax in the wonderful peace and quiet that is this timeless and special part of our world. If you are keen cyclists.... bring your bikes!
