“Lovely apartment, amazing views ”
Reviewed 16 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed here for 3 nights and found the apartment was everything we needed and more. It is ideally located for many places to visit on Skye and the surrounding area was just great for bird spotting. When we return to Skye we will most definitely be staying here.

“Lovely Apartment”
Reviewed 14 September 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My husband and I spent three lovely days at Kinkell House during a month-long trip to Scotland in June 2015. We stayed in self-catering apartments throughout Scotland, and found Kinkell House to be among the best. Everything is of high quality, and everything that you might need is available - kitchen is well outfitted, bathroom is compact but excellent, bed is very comfortable, and living-dining room is attractive and comfortable and includes a wide range of brochures and maps of the local area. Highly recommended, and if we ever have the opportunity to return to the Isle of Skye, we will definitely stay here again. Many thanks to Iona and Joseph for providing such a lovely 'home away from home'.

“Just perfect...”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

...spotlessly clean, very comfortable, lovely details, great view and best off all: no mobile reception :-) (wifi available for those workaholics...). We spent one week with 2 boys 11 & 15 and we all loved this place a lot. Tons of stuff to do, many flyers for Skye in the apartment, including maps. Tips from the owners etc. If the weather is bad, good DVD collection. 100% recommendation !!! Thank you Iona and Joseph!!

Thank you for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed the peace and quiet of no mobile phones ringing :-) We try to cater for poor weather as well as the good and this summer we have had plenty of the former so it's good to know the dvds collection has been used.

“cosy, well-equipped, felt like home”
Reviewed 27 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We were immediately welcomed and shown where everything was, and as the friendly owners lived downstairs we felt we could go to them any time we had a question, yet the apartment itself was completely soundproofed and private. We cooked most nights in the apartment and found all the equipment we needed and more, there was a good selection of DVDs and books for rainy days, and plenty of room for luggage and muddy boots. Having a washing machine and dryer was fantastic. Quiet location but convenient for all the sights and to get to shops and attractions in Portree.

“Beautiful retreat”
Reviewed 19 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We had a very pleasant 3 night stay in Kinkell Holiday Apartment. We were given a very warm welcome but never felt imposed upon. Access to the apartment is separate and private from the main house below and there is outside seating for sole use of the occupants, so your certainly given your own space to freely enjoy yourself.

The apartment is tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean and has ever comfort needed for a short or extended stay. I had thought for the online photos that apartment would be fairly compact but it was much more roomy than I had anticipated. The beds were comfortable and everything worked (including the internet!). We also appreciated the small attention to detail like hot water bottles in the bedside cabinet drawers and ample towels beyond what we would possibly need.

The location of the apartment is perfectly situated for touring the upper regions of Skye. We found some of the most beautiful scenery we had ever seen only a few miles from Kinkell. The fairy Glen is a must!

All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Kinkell and particularly appreciated the apartments comforts on one very windy rainy evening where retreating to the indoors was a far more favourable option than the other options available to us.
