“Honeymoon Heaven”
Reviewed 6 November 2008

We stayed at Holly Cottage in September 2007 for our Honeymoon. A perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The cottage was spotlessly clean, warm and cosy for our arrival and the owner had even arranged flowers and chocolates to start our honeymoon off in fine style. Holly Cottage had absolutely everything we needed right down to the finer detail. We arrived on a fine sunny day and the views across to the Isle of Skye were stunning.

In fact wherever we travelled throughout our week in the Highlands the scenery was breathtaking.

Holly Cottage, near Lyle of Lochalsh across the bay from the Isle of Skye lies nestled in the tiny, friendly town of Glenelg in the Western Highlands of Scotland. It is a newly renovated original crofter's cottage available for self-catering (you live there alone and furnish your own meals, unlike a B&B). It is beautifully and tastefully appointed with modern amenities including 2 baths (1 double shower), fireplace, dishwasher, W/D combination, heat in every room. A lovely enclosed garden out back is perfect for breakfast or afternooon tea. Much attention has been given to comfort and detail. The cottage is minutes away from the "wee" ferry to the Isle of Sky with panoramic views of the Cuillin Hills. Any road you take from the cottage will bring you to amazing views, spectacular wildlife. The cottage is extremely clean and well-maintained. Life in the Highlands moves at a slower pace than we are accustomed to. We found it to be a lovely seductive respite from the craziness of everyday life.
