We had a great time staying at this cottage. The views are great, and after a long day hiking the hot tub does wonders. The garden is dog proof so no need to check on the little one all the time. The kitchen is well equipped but could use some modernizing. Overall I would recommend and would come again!

Perfect location, in a relatively quiet part of Skye. View - whether from the conservatory, hot tub, or downstairs bedroom, was spectacular. Cottage is in need of some minor maintenance, eg. panel in garden fence is broken so no longer dog-proof.

Lovely views. Cottage was warm and beds comfortable. Good WiFi. Towels unexpectedly provided. On 1st night, we could not use hot tub as the water was too cold and the hut too dark. The next morning, the water was even colder. We had no phone signal but watched a YouTube video on how to fix it, so by 2nd evening we could use tub, though we had to usRead moree phone torches for light. There was no wood for a fire on 1st night. We bought wood next day so holiday was better from night 2 with hot-tub & fire. Hide
