“Fantastic accommodation”
Reviewed 26 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This new house had everything you could ask for including Sky TV and Wi-fi. All of the facilities were excellent with good showers, comfy beds, dish washer etc. Broadford is a good location on Skye with a 24 hour garage, good size supermarket and plenty of restaurants to choose from including Creelers which are all withing easy walking distance. The owner also provided lots of useful info about what to do and especially hos tip to get down to Elgol on a summers evening. Quite a journey down there, but well worth it with some of the most stunning scenery you could ever dream of. Some superb views of the Cullins from the house.

“First class, well equipped cottage in ideal location.”
Reviewed 19 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

A fantastic, modern and very well equipped holiday cottage. We have always wanted to return to Skye and this proved to be the perfect place to stay.
The cottage was spotless when we arrived. There are very spacious rooms with stunning views and the area is very peaceful. Very good local facilities including a number of excellent restaurants. We would recommend a stay here and hope to return ourselves one day.

“Even better than it looks online”
Reviewed 5 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

My husband and I spent a week in Ardmore cottage with another couple and their 22 year old daughter. The house was lovely, much newer (built 2005) and more spacious than I'd expected. All the bedrooms were large and the bathrooms modern and clean. The living areas (living room, dining room, and eat in kitchen) were also large and very nicely and comfortably appointed. The flower beds in the front and back of the house (not obvious in the online pictures) were lovely as were the distant mountain and sea views, at least when we could see them in the mist. (It's no fault of the housing, but one does have to be prepared for less than perfect weather on Skye.) The house's owner was very pleasant to work with, and clearly willing to do anything needed to help us enjoy our stay--even apologetic about the weather, as if he could have done anything about it! But it's not hard to find things to do on Skye in any weather, and even if one wanted to stay curled up in the cozy living room, there were plenty of board games available in the house. I don't know when or if we'll get back to Skye, but this is definitely where I'd stay again.

“Wonderful Accomodation”
Reviewed 5 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Ardmore is first class accommodation and very worthy of its 5 star rating. We were warmly welcomed by the owner who was very informative about the area and eating places. The property is very well equipped, very spacious with wonderful views. Broadford is a lovely village, with a very well stocked supermarket. The bay has fantastic views and we were lucky enough to see otters on a few occasions. There are plenty of places to eat nearby, most within walking distance. We had a great holiday even though the weather wasn't always what we wished for and when the weather is bad Ardmore is a great place to relax. Broadford is a very good location for travelling around the island or back to the mainland. We can't wait to go back!

“Ideal holiday accomodation on Skye”
Reviewed 25 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

This is the fifth year staying at this property, each time with friends. It is rare that you stay in a property which is as good as if not better than your own. The property is fitted out excellently, not only to provide for you on nice days, but also on rainy days. TV, video, internet access is all there. The owners are friendly and approachable and respond to any request you may have. An exceptionally large and comfortable property from which to explore this beautiful island. Needless to say we have booked for next year already.

“Best holiday cottage we have stayed in”
Reviewed 31 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Ardmore is a really nice modern bungalow with plenty of space and fully justifies its 5-star rating - it's a proper sized, well kept home that we really enjoyed being in - not just somewhere to be "tolerated" for a week. All rooms are spacious and well equipped. The owners were helpful and genuine - we couldn't ask for more. You really can't go wrong here!

Skye is marvelous, with scenery second-to-none. The village of Broadford, whilst not the most picturesque itself, has good restaurants and other amenities and is ideally placed for visiting the whole of the Isle of Skye (Elgol for boat trips to the Cuillins, Portree, Raasay...) and also over the Skye Bridge for day trips to the mainland or on the CalMac ferry to Mallaig.
