Sadly we only had 3 nights in this delightful cottage full of character! It was very well equipped and had been decorated and modernised to a high standard. The area was beautiful, there was plenty to do and see and the weather was amazing! What more do you want? We will be back!!
I thought Id written this review months ago....Oh well. My wife and I came to Burnside Cottage in December, 2017, and stayed until Jan 2nd. Sarah was extremely helpful with all of my questions, her response time was very quick. It was a long snowy drive from Edinburgh to Isle Of Skye, but we finally got to Portree to stock up. From there, the cottage is a short drive, about 30 minutes or so. Again, the instructions Sarah gave us made it very easy to find. Driving through the village, we were feeling pretty excited, as the scenery is amazing. Stein is a 5 minute slow drive from the cottage, and has a nice Inn, as well as a Michelin stared restaurant, Loch Bay. We went straight to the cottage, and were blown away by the Ocean views, the cleanliness of the cottage, the thoughtful decor....just everything. The fireplace kept us plenty warm and toasty, so we didn't use the heating system very much, as it is also extremely efficient. We will definitely be planning to stay here again, as it is perfectly cozy in the cooler months, our favorite times to spend on Skye.
We walked to Stein a few times, it is about a 40 minute walk or so, very easy though, and very enjoyable.
A beautiful, well-equipped cottage in the heart of the wonderful countryside on the Isle of Skye. We all thoroughly enjoyed our week staying at Burnside Cottage . Jasper, our dog thoroughly liked the various walks we did around the Island and we do thank Sara for all the information on where to go and what to do. The weather was not too bad and we were only forced to have one morning in the Cottage due to heavy rain.Even then the sun came out in the afternoon. Thank you Sara for for providing us with 5* accommodation for a lovely experience on the Ilsle of Skye.
This is a wonderful fully equipped cottage, with a great view and a lovely garden. Sara loaded us with local information about the island. So even if you make no plans, you will find helpful books and maps of Isle of Skye in the cottage. Next to great music, books, movies and games for the all family.
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.
