Stayed for a week over New Year 2015/16. We were met by a lovely bottle of prosecco and cookies. The cottage is perfect for a family of four, very comfortable and warm with very modern finishes. The kitchen is fabulous and the only thing it needs is an oven glove and some tea towels! The sitting/lounge area has a great selection of seats, books and board games. The beds are lovely and comfortable and every night we had an amazing sleep. The views from every window are amazing and relaxing and the cottage is very handy for Portree which has everything you need. It is also no more than about 40 minutes from all parts of the island. There are also lots to discover around the cottage. We are already planning our next trip back. I would not hesitate to recommend the cottage to anyone. It is perfect for small families or couples.
Firstly, as arriving on a Fri, 'check-in' was 5pm, but as we didn't want to arrive in the dark, the owner said from 1pm onwards - we might have slightly struggled to find the place after dark. With that in mind, if anyone is arriving after dark, perhaps the housekeeper leaving a lamp on or something would be good. The cottage is pleasantly deceiving from the outside, it's larger than you think. Great work of space inside, all amenities you need, I'd say an oven glove would be a welcome addition! It's a lovely cottage and a great log fire, with plenty of logs chopped for your stay. Views are perfect in the morning for the sunrise, especially from the main double bedroom. Portree itself is 6 miles away, be prepared to drive as cabs are unreliable after a certain time of night, in case you want to have a meal/alcohol out. There is a supermarket on the way into Portree, which is very handy. All in all, great cottage in a fab location and very easy to deal with for booking/deposit back. Most definitely will be back, brilliant find on Skye.
My second stay, much-anticipated and thoroughly enjoyed. The cottage is perfectly appointed, super-comfortable and my go-to place to escape, relax and unwind.
Stayed here in September with friends, and it was wonderful. We really enjoyed the open plan of the house, wonderful for relaxing after a day exploring the island. The location is perfect, great for accessing the whole island. It's a dream house.
