“Great for access to the Trotternish Ridge”
Reviewed 28 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Great little cottage, which has almost everything you could need, if you don't mind being a little bit out of the way. Great for accessing the Trotternish Ridge, which is what we were here to do, and a great place to come back to after a days walking. We were here in August so a little more expensive, but worth the money.

“Will come back, fantastic cottage”
Reviewed 18 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed here Monday to Saturday with our two dogs.
It was easy to find from directions given. The cottage itself sits on its own in an enclosed garden. Inside was immaculate and was well furnished. It had all the utensils and appliances you would need from a self catering accommodation. We would highly recommend this cottage to everyone. We couldn't find a single fault with it. We will definitely use it again on our next visit to Skye.

“Fantastic comfortable base”
Reviewed 16 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Just back from a fantastic holiday in Skye. This cottage is lovely, so well equipped and spotlessly clean. There is lots of space, and very comfortable. We would thoroughly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a home from home, and a great base in which to go exploring the fantastically beautiful Isle of Skye.

“A home from home”
Reviewed 5 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We have just spent a fabulous two weeks exploring Skye with this cottage as our base. When we arrived we were welcomed warmly and there was a bottle of wine waiting for us in the kitchen. The rooms were well proportioned and and well laid out. The property was very clean, well equipped and very comfortable. We had everything we could possibly need. The garden was excellent for the dogs and we were well looked after by the site caretakers, nothing was a problem for them, they were very helpful and friendly. I would recommend this cottage to friends and family.

Best of all wifi and mobile phone access was limited.

“Very well presented house, in a great location”
Reviewed 13 November 2011 for a stay in November 2011
2
people found this review helpful

We stayed here for four nights in November. The house is in a great location set back off the main road in its own gardens. It was very quiet and peaceful.

The facilities in the house were all modern, with a well equipped kitchen. All rooms were spotless and well presented.

The house has two sitting rooms, one downstairs with a TV/DVD player, and a second room upstairs off one of the bedrooms with sofas and board games.

At the back of the house, there is a larged covered area that can be used to store and lock up bikes if you cannot fit them all in the porch.

The house is well located on the island with the Quiraing and Storr nearby, and Portree a short drive away. The village of Staffin also has a couple of local shops, but its only a short drive to Portree where there is a good sized Co-Op. Its a good base for walking and cycling, or for reaching other areas of the Island by car or bus.

The house has a modern oil fired central heating system that warms up the house very quickly.

I would certainly recommend this house to friends and family, and would return if I visit Skye again in the future.

I booked this house through Sykes Cottages who provided a very good service, and helped me choose this house after my first and second choices were not available for short breaks.
