- Cottage was very comfortable, has everything needed. Shower not great. Weather good and bad,
very bad at times. But we enjoyed our stay. Thanks a mill.
- Fourth time visiting & alas our last due to circumstances. Brilliant cottage as
ever. Was adventurous & went to the Cuillin this year. Very wet & windy, but still had a great final visit. Recommend Adrian Trendall as a guide if you want to climb in the Cuillin. Look on
"Skye Walks" page on FB for his contacts. Or "All Things Cuillin".

Brenda & John Biggs Jun'21
- This is an astonishing cottage, so fully equipped - even giving us Alexa! Weather cool &
overcast at the beginning of the week to blazing hot sun at the end. We had such a good evening meal at The Uig Hotel on the Tuesday that we went again on Thursday - unfortunately the venison ("red
deer") was very tough, even with a steak knife that John had to register a complaint, but this was duly noted & an apology given.
John & Andrew Jun'21

enjoyed our visit. Aga was a joy to cook on. Thanks xx
Gemma, Alan, Ame &

Karl & Louisa
- We've had an absolutely amazing week here on Skye.
Weather has been typically autumnal with sunshine & showers, proper wind & rain & hail! For me this has been the best season to visit with beautiful colours changing every second & so
many rainbows. The cottage has been home from home & a perfect place to come back to after a day out exploring. Thank you!
Alli, Malcolm & Arran Oct'19
- Fantastic location & cosy & warm. Aga was 'putfutting' on arrival; Gary had an
engineer <24hours. Got used to cooking on it by the end of the week. Arran was overjoyed to discover an X-Box in his room. Having reliable wifi was a real plus. Comfortable bed & lovely &
clean. Thank you for thinking of everything Gary. We had a perfect stay, hiking & relaxing. Weather was predominantly dry & sunny, made for perfect photos up the Quiraing, Cuillins &
- Lovely cottage, so cosy & comfortable. Enjoyed views. Beautiful island.
Mark, Jess & Iris Sep'19

for the amazing sky.
Roger & Ali Sep'19
- Lovely cottage. Tad chilly to start, but Gary got it fixed quickly. Splendid scenery - if
going to climb the Old Man Of Storr, go early to avoid crowds. will miss the lighthouse on 'our' island. Isle Of Skye is far & away the most beautiful place we've walked in. Will miss it so
- Don't be afraid of the Aga. Loved it ?
Gary, Janet, Mel,
- Nice cottage. The views were amazing. A few issues. No hot water. Lucky we had the shower. CH
not working. Lucky again it was not cold. Love the Isle Of Skye.

movies, the bird feeders & the view. Highly recommend the Gallery Cafe in Earlish & a visit to the Rha falls in Uig especially if it's been raining.

Very comfortable cottage & great views. The weather changes so quickly, had sun & rain everyday. We'll miss the Aga next week.
- We have loved our week on Skye - our first visit but
definitely not our last! The cottage is wonderful, so cosy - & the views! (when it's clear!) One of the best cottages we stayed in. The island is beautiful, particularly enjoyed the Coral Beach
at Dunvegan, the Quiraing & Staffin Bay. The Museum of Island Life is worth a visit. Hope to be back soon!
- Such a wonderful week exploring Skye. The cottage
was so comfortable in such a peaceful setting with wonderful views. It makes such a difference to stay in a cottage where everything has been thought about. Really appreciated the Sky TV, dishwasher
& washing machine. It was great to have the Aga - home from home! We enjoyed feeding & watching the birds. We even saw a cuckoo in the garden! We really hope to come back again.
Mark, Kelly &
- Amazing cottage. We loved watching the sheep &
birds & enjoyed looking onto Little Minch. Cooking dinner on the Aga was fun! So peaceful, a vacation of a lifetime! ?

Everything thought about & provided. Thank you. We recommend the ’40 Skye Walks’ book, also the 3 Chimneys, Old School & Flodigarry + Uig hotels to eat x

local shop, the tardis, devine!!) (p.s. ......? island view).
Petra, Vojtěch &
- We came to Scotland to take some black & white
pictures in a lovely rainy & foggy weather but the whole week was sunny & really warm - 20-22°C! We felt as if we were in Italy!!! :-| But we enjoyed our stay especially in this
lovely, cozy & neat cottage with stunning views. We have spotted many
birds & sheep with lambs - love to hear them in such a quiet place! Thank you very much!

weathers but didn’t spoil our week. Will definitely be back!!
Alison & Steve Mar'19
- Really enjoyed our cosy home for the week. Great location
for walks & visiting those ‘must see’ landscapes.
- Thank you for our wonderful stay. Unfortunately, due to a
family illness, we’ve had to cut our stay short. A wonderful comfortable base to explore the ‘Misty Isle Of Skye'. Thank you!
- Extremely cozy cottage, kept the gales outside! Everything
thought of, love it! We now want an Aga!!
- A wonderful place! Can’t wait to come back.
Sean, Sam, Elisabeth &

it didn’t dampen our spirits :-)
- We had a wet & windy week but still enjoyed the walks we
have done many times. A week soon passes, we will be back!!
- Had a great week although the weather was very inclement!
Cottage great, well equipped & the dishwasher was an added bonus. Washer used twice as got very wet & muddy. Loved the pulley over the Aga. Got the washing dried in no time. Will definitely
be back to visit Skye. Didn't have enough time to do what we wanted. P.S. the little purple book '40 Best Walks' was a godsend. It became our bible for the week.
- An amazing wee find. The views are stunning, a different
vista each night...loved the Aga.. wish we could buy it!
Catherine, Alan &
- A beautiful house in a beautiful place even in the rain!
More sunshine though & time for the Quiraing & Coral Beach as well as castles & walks - recommend the croft museum.
Sandra, Yeroen, Lucas &
- We really enjoyed our stay at this lovely cottage! We have
seen a lot of beautiful Skye, but there is still a lot more to explore. So...a good reason to come back!!
Valérie, David, Charles
& Marie Aug'18
- We love Scotland & we love Skye - & this cottage is
such a nice place to stay. I enjoyed playing my bagpipes outside! We shall enjoy coming back! (by the way the Aga is awesome for cooking!)
Carol, Mike &
- Lovely cottage. Great location. We made very good use of the
Coast & Country Walks guide (replacing the dog-eared copy with a new one - after it went out with us every day!) Skye seemed so much busier than we remembered 5 years ago so lovely to find some
quieter corners too. I'm sure we will be back!
- We found the cottage lovely & cosy. Nice & clean,
just what we wanted to enjoy a holiday on this lovely island. We drove all over the island, visiting Portree, Broadford, the headland near here. Talisker distillery, the Old Man of Storr etc. etc.
Brilliant cottage & would highly recommend it to friends & family. Plus side only 2 midge bites.
- A lovely cottage! Could not get enough of the fabulous
views. The Trotternish & Waternish Peninsulas are incredibly stunning, & it was great to return "home" to the cottage each evening.
- Our first visit to Skye. Loved every minute, what a
wonderful cottage with views to match. Spent many hours in the kitchen watching the sun go down & the ever-changing sky whilst enjoying a glass of wine.
- We enjoyed our stay in the cottage very much. Very
comfortable & cosy. Had some real nice walks. Were happy about the views & the tranquillity.
Kevin, Ulrike &
- Lovely stay in this cottage. We really enjoyed the fantastic
sunsets & views. Explored a lot of majestic sites & loved to come back home.
- We enjoyed our week in this comfortable & cosy cottage.
It was a great pleasure to come home to after a breezy & rainy walk in this warm place with the Aga spreading it's warmth in the kitchen. We had a lot of bird watching in the garden with
Goldfinches, Greenfinches & Chaffinches. It was our second time at the Isle of Skye & I hope not the last one.
- Really enjoyed our fortnight in the cottage - one of the
cosiest & most comfortable we've stayed in. Recommend the Skye Pie Cafe near Staffin - it only opens 12-4 & gets pretty busy, so get there early! Lot of ? & castles & beautiful views.
Also recommend the Uig Hotel - had a lovely meal there. Also kept the birds in the garden fed while we were here - you can buy more birdseed at either the pet shop or Harbro.
Paul [previous owners] Apr'18
- Been a wonderful week at the cottage. New carpet ordered for
stairs & porch - fitting will be in June. Hope all the guests who visit enjoy the cottage as much as Paul & I.
Ailsa, Grant, Rory &

& view. The cottage felt really homely & we loved exploring Skye!

exploring by day & returning to warmth & comfort for cosy evenings.
- Homey little cottage in a prime location for key hikes &
tourist locations. Thoroughly enjoyed our holiday here & would come back 100%. Clean, quaint & comfy. Even completed both puzzles.
[previous owner] Sep'17
- Re the last guest comments. The cottage has gone through a
pet free transition. The cottage is now completely pet free. The guest who complained saw an old document stating please do not allow pets on the furniture which should have been removed. The guest
left on the Friday afternoon because they had a ferry booked to St Kilda, so his comment is misleading. Kind Regards Ann.
- Lovely views but very disappointed at obvious present of
pets & overall standard of cleanliness. Only booked because stated no pets & arrived to find request not to let dogs on beds or couches??? Left early - enough said.
Kate & Robert, Stacey
& Steve Aug'17
- Our Israeli friends came for the cooler climate & were
not disappointed! We all had a great time - would recommend the following walks:
(but not for children)
Thanks for stay!
Amanda, Rich &
- Lovely stay in a lovely cottage. Such a quiet location -
bliss!! We have spotted many seals near the Cuillin range & a porpoise! I've visited Soay, Rum & Canna, Dunvegan Castle & did the tour of Skye Brewery. Great holiday. Thank you
Monique, Eric &
- Very warm & cosy cottage. I loved spending time in the
beautiful kitchen that is always warm due to the amazing Aga ("wish list") :-) The weather was 50/50 but we did go/would recommend going to Quiraing, Fairy Glen, Brother's Point, Fairy Pools (Cuillin
mountains), Talisker. Eating out at Ferry Inn (Uig), Skye Pie Cafe (Staffin), The Old Inn & Oyster Shed (near Talisker).
Erdkönig, Matthias &
- We very much enjoyed our stay in your cosy cottage. We
especially loved to watch the lighthouses across the Minch when it turned dark. Beautiful views around the cottage. The walk to the Cave of Gold is worthwhile & the Coral beaches. Thanks to Paul
Charlie, Andy &
- We’ve had a great week. Highlights include the sunsets from
the cottage, cycling on the Quiraing & coffee at the Single Track cafe in Kilmaluag. Thanks.

Ross, Carol &
- Fantastic cottage with an amazing view. Cosy, comfortable
& had everything we needed. We’ll definitely come again.
G & A
- Lovely cottage in a stunning location. Spent most of our
time in the kitchen. Got the best tan with 3 days of sunshine then managed to be all cosy with the fire on, on the dreich days. Our second time here, hopefully will be back again. You can never tire
of the view.
- What a fantastic cottage & location. Everything you need
is here. The Aga is so easy to use. Visited most of the island as been here 2 weeks. Kilt Rock, Fairy Pools, Waternish, Armadale & Sleat to name a few. Would love to come again if dog free as the
cottage is changing to no dogs. You have a wonderful holiday home. Thanks for letting us share this special place.
- Cottage old & comfortable. Thank you.
- We had a very quiet week. The weather was beautiful,
sunshine all week. Saw a submarine from the front garden.

exploring the geology of Trotternish. Enjoyed everything.

views. Hope to come back one day (& for longer!).

on our ancestors - we walked to the graveyard & continued all the way to Kilmuir Hall & back to the cottage - a wonderful walking circle.

magical. We went everywhere, did everything. A mix of good & bad weather which spoilt nothing. We’ll be back. Thank you so much.

- Superb cottage, weather & surroundings. Amazing sunrises
& sunsets. Old Man of Storr, Quiraing, boat trip from Elgol to Loch Coruisk, Staffin beach, Oyster Shed - fresh seafood at Carbost, homemade pies second to none at Glenview! Coral Beach,
especially at sunrise & Portnalong at sunset - are a few of our trips since 3/10/15. The Isle of Skye is superb. Thank you Ann & Paul for a beautiful location & we’re looking forward to
coming back in May 2016.
Paul & Ann [previous owners] Oct'15
- Well, how lucky have we been. Most lovely week. Wall to wall
sunshine. Out & about every day. If there is a nice day we highly recommend, Fairy Pools, Kilt Rock, Ellishader Tea Rooms, not for the faint-hearted - Neist Point is a must.
Tricia & Jeff Sep'15
- Cosy cottage in a beautiful spot. Quiraing is stunning. Good
food at the Uig Hotel.
Annica & Max Sep'15
- We had a great week - love Skye & the cottage.
Everything worked fine, very comfortable. I want to come back to Skye one day…
Brenda & Peter Aug'15
- Lovely cottage in a stunning location. Very comfortable
stay. Loved the Aga - wonderful for making bread! Couldn’t make the TV work, but that was a blessing in disguise. Weather mostly good - an excellent base for going to St Kilda!!
- Loved learning to cook with the Aga. House was comfortable
& clean. The birds in the garden were a delight. Felt at home - enjoyed landscape’s weather. First lesson in Gaelic: ‘Ciamar a tha thu?’ - 'very well,
thanks'. And I would like to point out that a plug near a ______? in the bathrooms would be appreciated.
Kelly, Tracy &
- Beautiful cottage, supplied with everything we needed, in a
lovely location. Waking up to amazing views. Loved the wood burner & cooking on the Aga. Visited lots of places on the island. Enjoyed eating at The Lower Deck on Portree harbour - well
recommended - queue just before 6pm to ensure you get a table. Best places visited were the Fairy Pools, Old Man of Storr (challenging walk), Dunvegan Castle & gardens, The Wee Tea Room near
Talisker - very good cakes & bird watching.
Rick, Lesley & Georgie Aug'15
- Idyllic cottage, in a stunning location, we didn't want to
leave Skye - or the cottage!
Klaas, Antoinette &
- Beautiful house & a beautiful quiet place with stunning
views. We liked to experiment with the Aga. Skye is a beautiful island, but we were a bit disappointed about how many tourists come to the hot spots. Especially The Fairy Pools felt a bit like
“Disneyland”. But of course we were one of them ?
Sheena, Thomas, Ben &
Abby…+ Terry [Springer Spaniel] Jul'15
- Fantastic week in your comfortable cottage. Visited Portree,
Dunvegan, Neist Point, Talisker whisky distillery, Talisker Bay, Kilt Rock, Staffin Bay & Bornesketaig shore. Food - lovely dinner Pier Restaurant, Uig, tasty lunch at The Granary, Portree, great
cakes at Ellishader Art Cafe & nice reasonably priced lunch at Aros Centre, Portree. If I had to make one suggestion about the cottage - a mirror in the bedroom would be handy. This is our first
trip to Skye but hopefully not our last.
Bev, Alex &
- This place is soothing for the soul whatever the weather.
The Aga provides a welcoming & homely environment which is complemented by the wood burning stove. Although all parts of the island are amazing, it was always a joy to return to this beautifully
Dave, Marie, Alex, Jack +
Daisy The Whippet Jul'15
- A wonderful time was had by all. The cottage was everything
we’d hope it would be & the view!! Och Aye to the Isle Of Skye.
- Weather mixed - 10th time on Skye - love it. Walked every
day - Quiraing, Loch Coruisk, Blaven - stunning - cottage cosy especially kitchen with the Aga.
Matt, Lucie & Baby Hugo
- Wonderful week in perfect cottage. 1st time on Skye. “Interesting” weather, but at least with
the very long days one is never worried of not finishing one’s walk before night falls (@23h 30!) Little Hugo went up Storr & other neighbouring summits (on daddy & mummy’s back!…easy for
him!) He got his nose & cheeks quite cold but loves it! It’s always a pleasure to come back to the cottage every evening. The only VERY SERIOUS ISSUE is that Talisker Distillery is not at walking
distance. Highly recommended address…This place should be booked full months in advance. M,L,H.
- Loved the Aga. Had a good week weatherwise, not too much
rain! Went to Coral Beach. Enjoyed quite a few walks. Back home tomorrow :-(

registered plumber 18/3/2015. Sat dish out of our control. It had only been replaced by the sat man on Feb27th/15. Severe weather contributed to it coming down. Again internet connection problems due
to BT fault. Hopefully this is now fully resolved. We have been at the cottage & the broadband hasn’t failed at all.
B & H
- A wild week! The 85mph winds blew the TV dish off on Monday,
no live TV since. Internet connection a bit hit or miss for watching catch-up. The cottage has been warm & cosy up until the central heating packed up on Thursday. Loved the Aga, made bread
scones, pizza, fantastic roast potatoes, then it too packed in - Friday 13th?? Loved the area & the peace & quiet. The problems we have encountered would be major if we were not going home
tomorrow. The wood supplied when we arrived was too wet to burn, luckily we had dried logs from our own home otherwise we would have struggled with the wood burner as well. A nice comfortable,
well-equipped cottage. I could be more enthusiastic if everything had worked as it should. A little disappointing! Wouldn’t stop us coming back.
G & A
- Really enjoyed our stay. The view is stunning. Cottage is
lovely. The Aga & wood burning stove kept us warm over the cold nights. Skye is a beautiful place. Lots of walking & peace & tranquillity. Just what we needed. WiFi was not working but
enjoyed being cut off from the modern world (due to BT line fault). Hope to come back soon.

German Shepherd Jan'15
- Wonderful cottage - everything worked fine. Love the Aga - I
want one! Great views (variable distance dependent on weather) 10th visit to Skye, 1st time @ New Year. Saw lots of wildlife & walked miles. 1st visit to Flodigarry for dinner - excellent food
but 3 Chimneys still best! Hope to return.
David & Ginny + Merlot
- What a great cottage!! & in fantastic surroundings. Ok there are some teething problems
that the new owners will put right but nothing too major that has marred our stay - in fact we’d love to come back (if you’ll have us). Merlot & Ginny will miss the Aga (for different reasons!) A
Jack Russell has never had so many walkies & slept so well. White-tailed sea eagle over the garden a definite plus.
G & G & S Oct'14
- We don’t agree with the previous comments. The stay is here has been just great. Lovely
location, the cottage is really nice. There are issues with the plumbing here but we were warned in advance. Loved the Aga. We would stay again. However: We could not get the TV to work - it has a
satellite receiver that never got past “set-up”. Luckily there is free WiFi here & I have my iPad! The heating is a little strange - new batteries on the remote may fix it 8/10!
M & F O Sep'14
- A few issues with the cottage will stop us returning (no upstairs loo - should have been
told!) (Poor bed - my back! broken wardrobe, front door lock - yes it got fixed - TV screen damaged & cleanliness, especially the kitchen, my partner spent 2hrs giving it a deep clean or we would
have gone home - every surface sticky, except the work surfaces, dirt built up in every nook!) Oh, mouldy bird feeders!! Awesome weather; saw otters, dolphins, basking shark, eagles, hen harrier etc.
etc. Skye was ace!! PS faulty dishwasher / fridge not cleanest…no hairdryer!
D & J Sep'14
- Enjoyed our week at the cottage. Very lucky with the weather - sun every day. There are a few
problems that need attention - minor things that if fixed would make this a really great place.
Harris Family Sep'14
- We have had a great week on Skye & weather dry & one sunny day & sunset so feel
very lucky. Cottage fantastic, very comfy & cosy, clean & full of all amenities we needed. Had some great walks all a bit boggy, needed some wellies for some! Could have done with hooks in
the bedroom & shower room, apart from that no complaints. Lots to see & do so will be back to do the next. Thank you!
Clan Wimpenny Sep'14
- Brilliant, wonderful & amazing! Wall to wall blue sky most of the week - very very lucky.
Week consisted of walks & food! - Fairy Glen - very sweet; Old Man of Storr - good climb & Quiraing - magical & lovely walk. Best food The Bakery in Portree. Singe Track cafe, Flodigarry,
Uig Hotel - good value! Skye Museum of Island Life - very good if you’re interested in history of the area!
Karina & Sven With Emilie, Florine &
- Nice cottage! Lovely sunsets! We will miss the Aga!!! We have enjoyed your little
attentions!!! Quiet place to relax after exciting days! Funny birds in front of the window! Besides a fifth chair would be nice! We will be sure to recommend this cottage & we will come back
someday!! Thanks & be care!!!
Christine, Ulfert, Anna &
- Great views (even during rain) very quiet & nice location. We got to see a lot of Skye,
did some good hiking in rain & sun. House is very nice, with a second working toilet it would be perfect.
Vinz, Joyce, Elmer &
- How warm it was! 19-26˚C We even had a dip in the sea to cool. The Fairy Glen at Balnaknock -
you got to see that!! We went twice! And Neist Point is truly worth the drive. Perfect house - perfect stay!

lights needed in twin bedroom & the sewerage issue really put a damper on our stay. Apart from that highly recommended for the fit.

Mrs Wever May'14
- Amazing views & quiet. We loved the birds in the garden. A pity we are leaving! A coffee
machine would have been nice!
- What a beautiful place to rest. We loved seeing all the highlights of Skye this week. I loved
seeing the goldfinches in the garden. I did miss a coffee maker though. I don’t quite care for Nescafé.

was perfect to come back at the end of a long day & watch the boats go past.
