“Excellent well equipped holiday cottage”
Reviewed 5 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Had a lovely 2 week stay at Burnside. The cottage is equipped with everything you could imagine. It's roomy and comfortable. Particularly suitable for families and or a couple of couples.

We had a near endless search for a suitable property - required accommodation for 2 couples and possibly an additional couple so 2 bathrooms were essential - that was affordable and comfortable. Burnside was good value for money and fit the bill perfectly.

The nearby Stein and Loch Bay restaurant are walkable at 4 mikes/7ks round trip but it is an undertaking. We used Alis local taxi service on one occasion and walked on another.

Highly recommended.

“Comfortable retreat in scenic location”
Reviewed 6 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We really enjoyed our stay at this comfortable, clean and well kept cottage in a peaceful rural location in north Skye. It was well equipped and a very cosy and relaxing base to return to after a busy day sightseeing. We hope to return to Skye to continue exploring its wonderful scenery and would certainly be happy to stay in Burnside Cottage again when we go back.

“Lovely Cottage”
Reviewed 31 May 2016 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed at this cottage in October 2015 and thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.
The cottage is very well appointed, thought out and spacious, with every possible item provided.
Heating system is great plus added benefits of fireplace...and washing and drying facilities etc.
Whilst the location is remote, the setting is beautiful, stunning views, with lovely coastal and hillside walks - plus you are only five minutes from a very nice local pub.
Very helpful owner who made the entire experience extremely straightforward and hassle free.
We will definitely return in 2016.

“Brilliant”
Reviewed 19 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

person found this review helpful

Just home after a week staying at the beautiful Burnside Cottage. Waternish in Skye.
The cottage itself was spotless and every thought had gone into what you need on a holiday.including a bread maker as you are some way from the local shops.
This cottage is dog friendly and there are some amazing walks just behind the cottage.
The nearest restaurants are only 5 minutes by car or on a lovely night a great walk taking in the amazing views. The weather was mixed but did not dampen our spirits.
Cottage cosy and welcoming when you got back after a hard days sightseeing. We will be back. Brilliant

“Fantastic cottage on a beautiful island”
Reviewed 18 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Spent an amazing 6 days on the beautiful island of Skye. Weather not so good but didn't dampen our spirits.
Cottage lovely with amazing views from every window and every need meet.
All basics that you need were there.
Cottage spotless and cosy.
Recommend Scorrybreac in Portree for an amazing meal as well as The Three Chimneys but need to book all restaurants as all very busy.
Lovely local walks with dogs close bye.
Lovely walk behind church next door to cottage.
We will definitely be back. Loved it .

“A gem of a cottage on a gem of an island”
Reviewed 16 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The cottage is well equipped, very cosy and is in a beautiful setting.
We had a week of good weather and spent our time visiting places that I last visited 50 years ago.
Sara was very helpful and gave us a lot of local information before our visit which was very helpful.
