Stayed in the 'Barn' Last week while visiting family in the area. The cottage was well equipped and very warm and comfortable. Handy shop just round the corner providing takeaway food and
groceries. Staff very friendly and helpful.
myself and my partner visited Skye to celebrate my 30th birtday and we stayed in the Barn 22nd-29 march. I have to say I was very impressed by the Barn! the location was perfect with great sea views to the front and the quaraing to the back.The owner of the Barn, John, had lit us a peat fire so the cottage was lovely and cozy for our arrival. Throughout our stay john made us feel welcome, gave us plenty of tips on places to see and visit and also some handy shortcuts and he was always happy to stop for a chat and hear about our day. The barn was the perfect, everything id wanted and more. really didnt want to leave so I will definately be coming back again!
We stayed at the barn in September 2013 and had a wonderful holiday. We didn't know anything about Skye before we arrived and so bought the 'Isle of Skye 40 coast and country walks' book which had great suggestions for walks around the island. A lot of the places we went to were a drive away, but the journeys themselves were pretty. We ended the holiday with a truly lovely meal at the nearby glenview hotel (about 10 minute drive on the main road to Portree) which was a unique place which we didn't expect in rural Skye.
It was lovely to get back to the barn after weather beaten days out (the weather would go from bright sunshine to rain within seconds, but as long as you're prepared with waterproofs; it's more exhilarating than ruinous and you get to photograph no end of rainbows). There was always peat available for the burner which John kept stocked up. We would reiterate the good comments about John and Morag; they were great.
Loved the barn and loved Skye.

Stayed at the Barn for a week during summer. Its location is superb for hikes, drives (motorbike or car) and the views from the driveway are wonderful.
The Barn itself is well-equipped, has a nice atmosphere and we would highly recommend it to other couples to visit.
The owner is full of stories and great tips when it comes to hikes! Great guy, great barn, great stay. Will certainly come again!
