“Amazing wigwam!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

Stayed in larger wigwam (running water) with kitchen area and bathroom. Was absolutely brilliant. Good base for exploring and good shower after day out. Great value and good information regarding booking received immediately. Would def go back!

The facilities in the big chief wigwam are great! En-suite, hob, microwave, sink and fridge. Was spotlessly clean on arrival. Great base if you want to do a lot of outdoor activities, in our case walking. Or generally explore the north of Skye.
The views are stunning, very close to the fairy glen which is amazing, the museum of Island life which is worth a look. Also the old man of storr and the kilt rocks very near if you have a car. The owner of the site was friendly and had a good amount of local knowledge to offer. A lovely stay.

We have just recently come back from a 3 night stay in Whitewave. This is an excellent facility for using as a base for walking / cycling and outdoor pursuits. It is located in the north of the island, only a 35 minute drive to Portree and 4 miles from Uig.

The cottage has everything you would wish to have for a self catering holiday. The rooms are comfortable and there are all the home comforts, such as a comfy bed, cushions, books etc. The communal kitchen is very well equipped, with fridge / freezer, dishwasher, cooker etc with an extensive selection of utensils, cups and plates.

There is also a communal lounge with a small TV and videos (but with views like that, who would wish to have the telly on?). There is a communal dining area with a log burner and a CD player with a small selection of CD's. We noticed a few toys, games etc for young visitors.

We had a look at the Wigwams which are situated at the back of the site and are clean, modern and comfortable.

The site offers outdoor activities, such as canoeing, archery, etc. We didn't make use of them, but may do on our next visit.

The owners of the site live across the road and are on hand if you need them, but are very unobtrusive.

In summary, this is a very comfortable and clean facility for outdoor and family pursuits in a beautiful location and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
