“STUNNING SELF CATERING PROPERTY.”
Reviewed 8 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We spent this last weekend here and the property is fantastic.. Sleat is a gorgeous area of Skye and this house is an ideal base. Lots of room,, loads of lovely little touches and it is very well equipped. There is also great broadband with about 6 devices between us logged in at any time. Really is ideal for a big group with distinct areas around the place to relax.

“Awesome place”
Reviewed 8 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We had a really great time staying here! Correspondance with Carole, the owner, was quick and most helpful the whole time. The place was done up really nicely and we always looked forward to returning to the house each day. Thank you very much Carole!

“Comfortable property with in a great village location.”
Reviewed 15 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

The Old Church is a large property which can comfortably accommodate 10 adults, though as it was we were a group of 7. It is located in a village with good amenities (as well as the Mallaig ferry), the pub in particular is warm and friendly with decent meals. There was a bus service nearby though obviously most exploration is more conveniently completed by car. The property has large, comfortable social areas for dining and relaxing, especially the snug near the excellent wood burner. The bedrooms are well appointed, with plenty of reading material should the Skye Weather Gods not look favourably upon you! We went off season so a great deal of tourist attractions and restaurants were closed, however we can't recommend enough some of the walks nearby - so scenic for such little effort! It's also very close to more challenging hikes around the Cuillins if you're so inclined. Portree, Broadford, Carbost (Talisker Whisky!) are all within an hours drive, with Uig, Dunvegan, and the Trotternish Peninsula (stunning!) all very accessible also.

Overall I can't recommend the Old Church enough, particularly for large walking groups. It's cosy, conveniently located, well provisioned, and also large enough so you don't get under each other's feet. ****

“Exceeded all expectations”
Reviewed 13 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Such a beautiful and spacious gem of a find! The 5 of us felt immediately at home. The cottage has ample space for lounging, whether in front of the TV, or next to the fireplace after a long day out. Meals were a pleasure to prepare in the very well equipped kitchen. Multiple bathrooms with bath and shower meant no queueing in the mornings! The cottage has 2 fridges and a utility room with dishwasher, washing machine, and tumble dryer (amongst others). The bedrooms are incredibly comfortable and tastefully furnished.

I cannot recommend this beautiful cottage highly enough. The owner's have put so much care and attention to detail into both the lovely decorating and practicality of the place.

Communication before, during, and after the trip has been honest, helpful and so friendly.

This was a perfect base from which to explore the beautiful Isle of Skye! Will definitely be returning here.

“Amazing Amazing Amazing”
Reviewed 18 June 2012 for a stay in June 2012

This property & everything it offers is all you could ever want. It feels like a home rather than a holiday cottage & sort of welcomes you with a big hug the minute you set eyes on it. I loved every second.
The owner is a delight & you can tell that the cottage is a labour of love. They seem to have though of everything might need & things that you didn't even know you would need ! Another big plus for my husband was that the pub is only 50 yards away !

“Welcoming family friendly property in the "Garden of Skye"”
Reviewed 12 June 2012 for a stay in June 2012

This is a beautiful house, converted with taste from a former small chapel. It is extremely well equipped and well maintained. Its location is superb, being a very short distance from the ferry, across the road from a pub and shop and ideally located for exploring the southern half of Skye. The layout of the house and garden allows members of a larger group to find their own space or to come together in the lounge, dining room or kitchen area. The attitudes of and responses from the owners were extremely positive.
