Five enthusiastic stars!
We comfortably slept and fed four happy adults here. Spotlessly clean, all the appliances work perfectly, and the strong wifi was extra convenient. Beautiful views, easy to get to everything on Skye, AND a gorgeous garden with sweet little summer house. Spacious kitchen that let us cook for family and friends. The sitting room with a grand selection of games and books (even children's books) was a special highlight. Excellent value. We highly recommend it and hope to stay here again.

An outstanding property, the best self catering cottage I've ever stayed in, it was superbly equipped.

A cosy, convenient base for exploring Skye
I stayed here in October 2015 with my husband and two little girls. The house was easy to find, had off-road parking and a pretty location on a small peninsula, giving loch views in both directions. There was no TV signal but we were aware of this from the information given, although there was a DVD player and the internet worked well for our laptop - but we hardly used either! There are many shelves of books, an absolutely wonderful range of subjects perfect for a lover of nature/art/history/Scotland/fiction. (Me!) The girls learnt to play chess and other games, and it did us all good to have a break from the usual routine. The house was comfortable and very cosy in the horribly noisy storm which battered us for two nights, and the bathroom and kitchen large and well equipped. The location is quite far north on Skye and we found that in a week, driving around and doing several walks, we were only able to fully explore from about Sligachan and above - very thoroughly, mind you! Skye is bigger than I remember from 30 years ago..... We had some beautiful weather, some awful weather and storms, but we enjoyed ourselves. Plenty of information in the cottage about places to go, but we did a bit of research beforehand. I would certainly come here again, my only comment being that after a hard day's walking, I did find myself wishing that the cottage had a bath! The shower was great, but I'm sure you know what I mean. We need to come back to Skye soon!

Beautiful cottage set in wonderful scenery
My husband and I spent a week in this cottage in early summer. The cottage is secluded enough to enjoy total peace and quiet but within easy driving distance of Portree for the essentials such as shopping. The cottage is very well set up with everything you could need for your stay, lovely, cosy and comfortable, and the garden is beautiful. There is also good off road parking for the car. The owner communicated all the details we needed, plus lots of extra hints and tips, in plenty of time for our visit and there was a file of local information in the cottage. The surrounding area is stunning, as is the whole of Skye. I would highly recommend this cottage, I will defiantly be booking this again. Additional tip for anyone with a gluten intolerance - the local co-op as you drive into Portree stocks a small collection of free-from goods, and the Skye bakery (on the same road into Portree, just before the co-op) is an absolute must, it does the best gluten free bread I have ever tasted.

The cottage is out of this world. Liked the wildlife on your doorstep, looking into the evening sky watching the sunsets and the stars, sitting in the summerhouse with the one you love sharing a few glasses of wine. Every day the landscape changes so no two photographs are the same. We still haven't seen everything that we want to see so we will be going back again next year.
