The location is amazing and the views stunning.
The cottage is only a short drive to Dunvegan where we visited the castle. Portree is another place which we visited where you can find the remains of an Apothecary. and shops and restaurants. Other places to visit are Niest point Light house, the coral beach where we saw seals. Old Man of Storr, Fairy Glen and pool and Uig to name but a few. The owners recommended the Oyster Shed so we had lunch there again the views were stunning, the views were stunning whereever we went. We were so lucky with the weather it was warm and sunny all week. The cottage is secluded and has a well equipped kitchen. There's no mobile phone signal but there is WIFI

The cottage was spotlessly clean, warm and very comfortable. In an interesting location with great views over the loch and the Hebrides. Skye has diverse and magnificent scenery.

Enjoyed our 7th visit to Tigh an Tobair last week! That we keep going back to this lovely cottage says everything about it. Looking forward to returning next year, all being well.
