We had a lovely week staying at this beautiful hose with spectacular view of the Loch and The Cuillins!
We spent a snowy break in February in this lovely home.
The setting is idyllic and the house makes the most of it. Lovely to wake up to the amazing views, ideal for a relaxing stay away from everything.
We visited as much as we could in our short break and the house was in a good spot central to most things. The Fairy pools are close by and definitely worth a visit.
Quick tip- if it looks like it’s going to snow park at the top of the drive to save lots of hard work!
Alan was very easy to deal with and left us to it.
Only one thing I’d like to have seen was tea and coffee in the house. Understandable it is self catering but not something I’ve had to go out and buy before, nearest shop is a bit of a trek too!
This house is just as beautiful as the photos suggest. To arrive at Calath after the long drive to Skye is to feel as if you have arrived in heaven. My friend and I spent most of the time sat on the (very comfy) sofa looking out of the window at the loch and ever changing sky. The wood burning stove kept us warm and each of the bedrooms had similarly beautiful views. My friend is a photographer and I am an artist, and we couldn't have chosen a more perfect location. We will be back!
Calath is a beautiful house not far from Carbost. It overlooks Loch Harport where we saw porpoise regularly from the house. Calth was very comfortable and spacious and the views of the Cuillins from the sitting room were stunning.
We would definitely stay here again
If you want the Cuillins as your focus as your visit to Skye then this would be a superb place to rent. A huge picture window frames the Cuillins perfectly, the 'modern croft' is an amazing building with comfy beds and furniture, and you'd be close to Glenbrittle for access.
If you want to explore the whole island Carbost is a pretty central place to be too. And should the weather close in then there's always the great wi-fi, tv and board games to keep you entertained. Be aware though that this is the sort of place that could spoil you for other properties!
We have just finished our first ever 6 day visit to the Isle of Skye and we're so relieved to have been blest with wonderful weather in the most enabling us to explore as much as possible. Not only is this a great location but so central to ensuring that we could make the most of our short visit to explore all the extremes of the area
The sheep certainly kept us entertained with their forays into the garden...
I have visited Skye at Easter for nearly 40 years now and Calath is easily the best place I have stayed. It's perfect as a base for parties that want to walk or climb up the Cuillin. The house is warm (underfloor heating) and very comfortable. The living room has a massive picture window affording a wonderful view across to the Black Cuillin, looking into the vast Coire na Creiche. There is ample room for six adults with attendant walking and climbing equipment. The kitchen is well equipped and self caterers will have no trouble cooking for themselves. For lazy folk like myself, there is the Old Inn in Carbost plus the Oyster Shed (lunchtime only), even closer on the road down into Carbost. In the direction of Portnalong, there is also Taigh Ailean which does pretty good food as well.
All in all Calath presses all the right buttons and we shall certainly be returning next year.
