RECENT CUSTOMER REVIEWS
Stunning location and views. Couldn?t fault what we found to be a very cosy and clean cottage with all amenities you could want. No idea what other reviews mean when they complain about the track. We were there in snow and hail and found it perfectly easy to drive on. Maybe other reviewers aren?t used to the outside world. Didn?t find the track steep, beach was walkable. Although we chose to drive, local shop was excellent and had everything we could need. Local takeaway (hungry gull) was great, reasonably priced and really accommodating! We had tv the whole time with not one issue. I also had 4G the whole time on EE. But neither the TV or the internet is why you go to Skye! We spend all day making the most of the outdoors, really close to the Quiraing mountain walks, close to old man of Storr, kilt rock and the beach. Spent the evenings cosy in front of the fire. Perfect location in my opinion! Wendy is a lovely host and great at communication. I want to buy the cottage!
Perfect Skye retreat
Excellent location overlooking the beach with fantastic panoramic views. Ambers cottage is cosy, very clean and well equipped. Comfortable beds gave us a perfect night's sleep after days out sightseeing. Pet friendly with enclosed gardens (perfect for our pug). This is the 4th time we have stayed at Ambers cottage and it certainly won't be the last. A perfect retreat to escape and forget the current worries of the world. Would recommend anyone to choose to stay here.
Not as described
Disappoint Booked with Sykes cottages for special birthday. The cottage very dated although clean and warm. TV set up is not acceptable balanced on the electric fire. Not a dining kitchen, the table is meant to be moved in and out very heavy and castors broken. No lamp in second bedroom and all fixtures of a poor quality / damaged however suite ok. Not sure where the pub was but we never found it?Did have views
A lovely cottage in a perfect location.
One of the best holidays we have ever had! The cottage was clean, spacious and had everything we needed. Once our day exploring Skye was done, we found the cottage a home from home and very relaxing. The views were awe inspiring, with the Quirang to the front and an amazing view to the hills at the rear. We found Staffin an ideal place to stay as there were a couple of small shops for our essentials and only a 25 minute drive to Portree for excellent eateries and larger stores. Both of us can't wait to go back!
This was my first time going to Scotland, let alone anywhere as rural as Skye, but I had a wonderful experience! Amber's Cottage was clean and tidy and had everything needed to accommodate myself, my friends and our dog. There is little signal on the island and at the cottage for your mobile phone and television; but this is not at all a reflection on the cottage, it was in fact a surprisingly welcome break from social media and the internet (and I?m speaking as a 26-year-old woman)! Plus, this enabled some quality time to spent with friends, distraction-free. There were a plethora of games supplied at the cottage for evening entertainment. My favourite part of this experience was standing outside in the garden, at night, with a pair on binoculars (which were already at the cottage) and looking up at the stars; I was in awe. The air is so clean and fresh, the beaches magnificent, Portree was a wonderfully quirky village within only a few miles of the cottage and close to the Old Man of Storr; we went finishing in Uig, travelled to the fairy pools and had a warm and cosy cottage to return to after a day well spent exploring. The cottage was spacious enough to accommodate 5 adults with its x2 bedrooms and a large living area, well-sized bathroom and large kitchen. I can?t wait to return and explore even more of this magical island. I will definitely be staying at Amber's Cottage again.
