Situation and views amazing, convenient for shops, restaurants, carry-outs, boat trips etc. Parking space great. Very comfortable. Stairs a bit steep but only problem for small child or someone with a disability. Property is on floors.

It's in an ideal situation with a beautiful view of the harbour area. There is parking for up to two cars. The cottage is very comfortable and we loved using the AGA. A great location to have a family holiday and explore the island.

Probably the best spot in Portree. Look out of your window, watch the boats, watch the weather change, try a spot of home baking in the Aga! This house even has a little garden area with table and chairs to sit out in, immediately adjacent to the water. Shops, restaurants and bars all within five minutes walk.

Great location! Very homely and traditionally furnished. Great source of hot water. Enjoyed using Aga although might not be for everyone. Bring your own toys for young kids though as weather is prone to be very changeable!

The location is amazing, with fantastic views over Portree harbour. Lots of tourists walked passed and came into the garden to take photos - some even sat and ate their chips! The house itself is a good size, but in parts tired and in need of updating. Also we found the layout impractical. Door needed on en-suite!
