Comfortable stay with fantastic scenery
The Barn is located in a small village with fantastic views of The Quiraing from just outside the property. The host, John, was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay and made us feel very welcome. The property is quiet & cosy, especially when the fire is burning. There is no Wi-Fi and no phone signal on certain networks (O2 - no signal, Virgin - 4G) but it was a nice break from the messages & calls! There is a small shop nearby that has the basics and things required to keep the wood stove burning. There is a beach a few minutes' drive up the road which is great for walking the dog in the morning, it even has some dinosaur footprints! This area of Skye also has great views of the stars on a clear night.

Great stay
My sister and I stayed here for 3 nights while we explored Skye. The Barn is situated in a great location for getting to and from all the sights and Mr Mckenzie has a vast wealth of local knowledge and was able to point us in the direction of all the best spots to visit. The Barn was very cosy and comfortable and we will definitely stay here again and recommend that everyone else does too!!

Cosy Cottage in Staffin
My wife and I spent a lovely week at the Barn in Staffin. It is owned by a wonderful gentleman Mr John McKenzie who was so welcoming, friendly and eager to do all he could to make our stay comfortable. He had a peat fire ready for us when we arrived. The cottage is pet friendly & our dog Buddy was welcomed & loved his stay too. The cottage has a twin bedroom with comfortable beds and an en suite toilet & shower room. The other room is a lounge with dining table and sink, cooker, microwave and fridge freezer. There is a TV with great satellite reception. Phone reception on Vodafone is patchy in Staffin. There is an outhouse with kindling and cut peat to use in the burner in the lounge. Cuddling up on the sofa watching the peat fire crackling away with a dram to sip was bliss. We would highly recommend this cottage. The owner is so kind.

Peaceful and cosy
Lovely cosy cottage with stunning views. John was the most friendly helpful host you could ever hope to meet and his knowledge of the area is fantastic. The scenery and walks around the area are wonderful , and it was lovely to come back to a lovely warm cottage heated by the peat supplied by John.

Everything you need
After a 15 hour trip we finally got to the barn. The setting is very nice you can see the sea and the location is excellent for exploring the island.

The building consists of 3 rooms., the main room is the living area which consists of kitchen/lounge and dining room the floor is lino but has rugs.The kitchen is very well equipped with every thing you need with a good size fridge and freezer. The lounge area is basic but comfy with a wood/peat burner which is nice once the fire gets going it will warm the place through.the tv is small but acceptable. there is a great book shelf with lots of information about the island . there is also a dining table and chairs which is adequate. The bedroom beds are very comfy and again ut has everything you need even alarm clock bathroom is flagstone floor and can feel cold . overall its a great property for location and has everything you need . few tips Take slippers as the floors can feel cold. in portree their is a large co op get your shopping from there we found the small shops was extremely expensive forgot to say the barn has some fantastic features like the high celings
