This is a self catering cottage, which means breakfast breads, cereals, coffee etc. are there in the full kitchen you have complete access to, and you help yourself. What a concept!! Mary provided us with a welcoming treat of homemade muffins on our first night's late arrival, and we found a nice treat of some kind in our "box" each night when we arrived back at the Schoolhouse from our explorations. We bought some food and added eggs to our breakfast, cooked a dinner and made lunches for our treks. It was great!
Our room was not particularly luxurious, but the Schoolhouse also is a small art gallery and the room was unique, with interesting and unique art and fabrics that made it different and special. The view was exquisite out of the front and off the kitchen. It was very comfortable and clean and in very good repair throughout. It was like having your own bedroom and bath at your very tasteful, artistically inclined, non interfering, Mom's house!
We wanted to explore the Isle of Skye and the Highlands and this was an excellent jumping off point for that as well. It is within walking distance to Eilean Donan Castle which took our breath away as we were driving in at night ( it is beautifully lit ). We easily explored all of the Isle of Skye, Inverness and Loch Ness. We enjoyed it so much we extended our stay another night.
This is a far cry from your cookie cutter hotels, but in a really good way. Mary is fabulous and so is The Schoolhouse. Highly recommend!!
