“Exceptional”
Reviewed 27 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Hartaval cottage has been home to us for the last 7 days. We have so enjoyed this delightful peaceful accommodation. The property is absolutely spotless and very high spec. Everything that you could hope for.
The cottage is in a great location on the main road between Portree and Staffin looking out to sea across a small field of sheep and lambs. You are very close to a number of Isle of Skye natural attractions The Quiaring and The Old Man of Stor. Would highly recommend !!

“Lovely cottage, spacious, clean.”
Reviewed 24 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Fantastic cottage, spacious and clean. New build. Can see sea from cottage. Weather was a bit so-so, but ideal for spending indoors. DVDs provided if, TV not to your fancy.

“Beautiful Cottage with Stunning Views”
Reviewed 22 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Hartaval Cottage was just perfect as we are not hustle, bustle people and had checked Google maps prior to our holiday so knew exactly where it was. The cottage was beautiful and ticked all the boxes. To us it was in a great location for exploring the rest of the Island just a stones throw from The Kilt Rocks and the Old Man of Stor. Rachel and Dougie were lovely hosts and so accommodating. Would definitely recommend to friends and hope to go back there again ourselves.

“Spotless and so very comfortable”
Reviewed 14 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Although further from the "highlights" of Portree than I'd planned, this was a gem of a place. Built from scratch by the owners to a very high spec and with loads of space, fully kitted out with everything one could need (even obligatory WIFI for the teenagers). Even got some fresh tatties from the garden plot (all eaten and lovely).
I kept getting distracted on journeys too and from by the staggeringly beautiful scenery nearby. Can't believe how big Skye is too, you have to see it for yourselves.

“Excellent Place”
Reviewed 31 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Everything was good. Rachel is very kind and help us with our travel. The cottage provide everything that you need and the beds are very comfortable.

The house is for 6 people. However the sofabed is not very comfortable. For a few days could be ok. But, the beds in the rooms are very comfortable.

The house is clean and big. with great views. A perfect place to relax.
