lovely comfy cottage
Can't really fault the cottage, comfy beds, slept really well. A hair dryer would have been appreciated, but otherwise the cottage was well equipped and clean. Photos a bit deceptive, we thought the sea was closer than it is, the 'beach' not very enticing. Not much in the way of local ammenities in the area, two shops which close quite early and don't open at all on a Sunday. No pubs, you have to go into Portree which is about 13 miles away on a single track road.

Beautiful location, cosy cottage.
We enjoyed a 2 week stay here. The cottage has an amazing view of the Quiraing ridge and the beach. An easy 10-15 minute walk to the beach nearby, or a good walk down to the pier. The cottage was clean, tidy and suited all our needs. The owner and housekeeper were great at making sure we had all we needed. Shops nearby are limited and expensive. We did our big shop at Portree and then just topped up where needed nearby. Portree is about half an hour drive away. Had a fabulous stay here and would highly recommend to anyone looking to get away from it all. No wifi, and wifi is limited on the island, but detoxing is good every now and again!

Not as planned
Not very clean, bedroom light not working, shower not brilliant - kitchen table is a pull out with 4 chairs under which makes the kitchen difficult to work in - no hair dryer or welcome pack - beach is a good 15 minute walk although as all areas in Skye the views are stunning - Portree your best place to shop local are not good

A lovely Cottage in a beautiful setting, indeed perfect.
