  • Got some sunny weather & loved being in Skye. The cottage was spotless & great to stay in. Gary keep it up.

Linda, Jenny & Jag Aug'20

  • Had a fantastic week on Skye. We loved all the art in the cottage & cooking on the Aga. Such a warm & cozy place! Our highlight was seeing basking sharks off the Jurassic Coast.

Paul, Zoe, Fleur & Samuel Aug'20

  • Wonderful holiday exploring Skye. Fabulous walks from the cottage - so beautiful & peaceful. Loved swimming & snorkelling at Staffin. Super cosy cottage. Hope to return. Thank you!❤️

Stu, Oksana, Bella, Chloe Jul'20

  • Fantastic stay, the cottage made us feel at home! Thank you! [P.S. A bit of struggle with the shower - too cold or too hot ; we couldn't find a wine bottle opener :-(] Thank you for a fantastic time!​

 

The Tarrants Dec'19

  • Perfect place to see New Year in! Great house, lovely & warm. Aga was a joy to cook on. Very winy !! On the finer days, great place to visit, with stunning views! Thank you x

Stephen & Carole Clark Nov'19

  • Arrived in rain, left in rain but the 6 days in-between fantastic weather! Some amazing sunsets. Cottage v cosy & warm. Great location & v well appointed - only thing missing was a cafetière! Hope Gary gets the Aga sorted over the winter & that is the icing on the cake! 

 

Karl & Louisa Martin-Kimber Oct'19

  • 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 & Blaven.

 

Jeanette & Tim Oct'19

  • Lovely cottage, so cosy & comfortable. Enjoyed views. Beautiful island.

 

Mark, Jess & Iris Sep'19

  • Loved the cottage - want to buy it. A week is never long enough on Skye. Try & get over to Harris - Luskentyre beach is amazing. If it's a clear night make sure you go outside 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 much.
  • Don't be afraid of the Aga. Loved it :-)

 

Gary, Janet, Mel, Kay Sep'19

  • 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.

 

Alex, Rob & Seb Aug'19

  • Absolutely loved this cottage, loved the Aga, Sky 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.

The Crofts Aug'19

  • The cottage was so comfortable & very well equipped. We would have appreciated the downstairs being a bit cleaner on arrival. However we had a lovely holiday.

 

The Snowdens Aug'19

  • My second time to Skye albeit with a 35 year interval. Loved this stay on Trotternish & the cottage. Will be back.
  • Lovely cottage, lovely location. A golden eagle flew past at near eye-level this afternoon!

 

Ron & Pam Jun'19

  • Well worth the long trip all the way up to Skye. Very comfortable cottage & great views. The weather changes so quickly, had sun & rain everyday. We'll miss the Aga next week.

                                                                      

Jenny & Steve Jun'19

  • 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!

 

Sue & Meirion Jun'19

  • 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 & Lora May'19

  • 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! :-)

Wendy & Robert May'19

  • A wonderful week in a great cottage with fabulous sunsets. 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

​​

Jodie & Michael May'19

  • The best holiday! 8 Herbusta feels like home. Sad to be leaving. We want to stay forever. Thank you xx

 

Derek & Jean May'19

  • We have many stays in this cottage. This one was just as good as the rest. The week has flown by. Back to the hassle now - but we'll be back in September.

 

Janette & Newton Apr'19

  • Love it come back - okay!!! Quirky, fun, aga, wood burner, the birds - your mates!! (p.s. local shop, the tardis, devine!!) (p.s. ......? island view).

 

Petra, Vojtěch & Petr Apr'19

  • 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!

                                                                      

Sanjay & Karan & Zoya Apr'19

Dawn, Allister & Abbie Apr'19

  • First visit to Skye, cottage was superb :-) We had all 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.

Damiano Feb'19

  • 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!

 

Lynn & Ali Feb'19

  • Extremely cozy cottage, kept the gales outside! Everything thought of, love it! We now want an Aga!!

 

Her Dec'18

  • A wonderful place! Can’t wait to come back.

 

Sean, Sam, Elisabeth & Samuel Oct'18

  • Lovely, cosy, comfortable cottage. Weather was horrible! But it didn’t dampen our spirits :-)  

 

Derek & Jean Sep'18

  • We had a wet & windy week but still enjoyed the walks we have done many times. A week soon passes, we will be back!!

 

Brian & Elaine Sep'18

  • 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.

 

Stevie & Tracy Sep'18

  • An amazing wee find. The views are stunning, a different vista each night...loved the Aga.. wish we could buy it!

Catherine, Alan & Emily Sep'18

  • 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 & Thys Aug'18

  • 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 & Joshua Aug'18

  • 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!

 

Liz & Ali Jul'18

  • 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.

 

André & Petra Jun'18

  • 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.

 

Eddie & Kath Jun'18

  • 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.

 

Barbara & Monica Jun'18

  • 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 & Meike May'18

  • Lovely stay in this cottage. We really enjoyed the fantastic sunsets & views. Explored a lot of majestic sites & loved to come back home.

 

Frauke & Matthias May'18

  • 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.

 

Hilary & Maarten May'18

  • 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.

Ann & 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 & Lucy Apr'18

  • Everything we were looking for, loved the Aga, log burner & view. The cottage felt really homely & we loved exploring Skye!

 

David, Jill, Eilidh, Niamh & Ruaraidh Jan'18

  • Another lovely stay in this cottage. Highlights this time include the Fairy Glen & dinosaur footprints at Staffin. Looking forward to our return!

 

Lee & Alison Nov'17

  • Lovely cottage, we have enjoyed our stay here very much, exploring by day & returning to warmth & comfort for cosy evenings. 

 

Max & Sam Oct'17

  • 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.

 

Ann [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.

Glen Sep'17

  • 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 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:

     a)Brother’s Point

      (but not for children)

     b)Coire Lagan

     c)Bioda Buidhe

     Thanks for stay!

                                                                                                    

Amanda, Rich & Jacob Aug'17

  • 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 & Morgan Aug'17

  • 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 & Benni Aug'17

  • 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 & Ann.

 

Charlie, Andy & Harris Jul'17

  • 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.

 

John, Pamela, Emma, Karen & Callum Jul'17

  • Lovely, comfortable, warm cottage. Weather perfect, couldn’t get TV to work!! Would’ve been better with extra chair in the kitchen. Pity can’t get car up the drive!! had a great time. Thanks.

 

Ross, Carol & Hamish Jul'17

  • Fantastic cottage with an amazing view. Cosy, comfortable & had everything we needed. We’ll definitely come again.

G & A Jul'17

  • 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.

 

Karen & Andy Jun'17

  • 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.

 

Lefebvre & Dhaene May'17

  • Cottage old & comfortable. Thank you.

Derek & Jean May'17

  • We had a very quiet week. The weather was beautiful, sunshine all week. Saw a submarine from the front garden.

 

David & Midge May'17

  • Perfect cottage - very peaceful. Ideal position for exploring the geology of Trotternish. Enjoyed everything.

 

Sue & Roger Apr'17

  • We loved staying here - the Aga, the birds, the sheep, the views. Hope to come back one day (& for longer!).

 

Paul, Janet & Ella Apr'17

  • A lovely cottage with great views. Loved the Aga & log burner. Visited many places & had a boat trip to Loch Coruisk. Thank you we had a great stay - very cosy. 

 

Lyn Nov'16

  • Peace, tranquillity, beauty - loved the cottage - reflecting on our ancestors - we walked to the graveyard & continued all the way to Kilmuir Hall & back to the cottage - a wonderful walking circle.

 

Jane Nov'16

  • Love the cottage & walking in the footsteps of my ancestors for a short time. Thrilled to be here.

Natalie, Mark & Charlie - + mum & dad for 3 nights Oct'16

Steve, Andrea, Finlay & Timmy Oct'16

  • The weather has been truly amazing. Blue skies every day. Lovely cottage & stunning views. Enjoyed a lovely walk down the lane to the graveyard & met neighbours, farmers & very friendly cats. Timmy the Jack Russell would love to stay forever. Finlay - aged 8 - “I enjoyed a walk to a loch & bog jumping.”

 

Sam + Oscar the Westie Sep'16

  • Lovely stay. Stunning views with great sunsets & rainbows. Loch Bay [Michael Smith] restaurant definitely worth a visit - lobster & chips from the Oyster Shed is just perfect.

Sandra & Ian Sep'16

  • Great place, quiet, great views. Loved the sleeping dragon in the kitchen! Wind & rain a bonus! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

 

Samantha & John Aug'16

  • Love your house. Brilliant views from all windows. Loved cooking on your Aga, hope to visit again.

 

Tony & Sara Aug'16

  • Have had an amazing time. The photos will not do it justice. The cottage is wonderful, so quiet & peaceful.

 

Eric, Sarah, Hannah & Luc Aug'16

  • Lovely cottage, Skye is wonderful. Beautiful scenery, hope to visit again. Thanks.

 

Peter, Annelies, Stan & Basil Jul'16

  • What a great magical place! The scenery is just without words. Herbusta 8 was for us a home, a safe haven, for all of us. We will be back one day. Thanx.

Hilary & Martin Jun'16

  • Very comfortable cottage. Lovely quiet location. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

 

The Greens Jun'16

  • Perfect weather & comfortable cottage for a great week's holiday. We’ve hunted for dinosaurs footprints, seals, puffins & fairies in the Fairy Glen. We’ve spent time at the Coral Beach & the Fairy Pools. Brilliant!

 

Jana, Olaf & Erik May'16

  • Lovely cottage + marvellous weather + wonderful Skye - was a great holiday!

 

Amy, Natalie, Philip & Sherly Mar'16

  • This house is so beautiful. The view is great & the mountains are so great for a sunset.

 

Emily, Will, Sally-Anne, Graham + Talisker [Spaniel] Feb'16

  • Great week exploring the North of the island. Walks on the Quiraing, in the Cuillins & on Raasay. Beautiful light & turquoise seas helped by the weather - brilliant sunshine, gale force wind, rain, hail & lots of snow! Thank you, we’ll be back.

 

Jill, David, Eilidh & Niamh Jan'16

  • We have had an amazing week in Skye. The cottage is beautiful & has everything you could need. We were even treated to the Northern Lights standing in the front garden. We hope to return here again.

Pat & Jo Riley Oct'15

  • The cottage is amazing, the Aga is amazing, the island is magical. We went everywhere, did everything. A mix of good & bad weather which spoilt nothing. We’ll be back. Thank you so much.

 

Nesta, John & Mr Fin Oct'15

  • 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!!

 

David Aug'15

  • 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 & Marina Aug'15

  • 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 & Joshua Aug'15

  • 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 & Dingo Jul15

  • 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 located cottage.

 

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.

 

Marilyn & Roger Jun'15

  • 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 [10months] May'15

  • 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.

D&J May'15

  • Loved the Aga. Had a good week weatherwise, not too much rain! Went to Coral Beach. Enjoyed quite a few walks. Back home tomorrow :-(

 

Ann & Paul [previous owners] Mar'15

  • Aga & boiler was due for a service. Serviced by Corgi 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 Mar'15

  • 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 Feb'15

  • 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.

Julie & Mick…+ Jaz the 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 Oct'14

  • 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 & Malin Aug'14

  • 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 & Matthis Aug'14

  • 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.
