“Skye croft cottage”
Reviewed 7 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Wonderful croft in a breathtaking position with views to die for. Although small it is perfectly presented with all you could wish for, warm and cosy even in the coldest weather. Within easy reach of supermarket and local amenities. Great walking and sightseeing close by.

“A very peaceful location to unwind and relax”
Reviewed 2 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Everything that you need for a relaxing time away from the hustle & bustle of every day life, a very well equipped cottage with all mod cons that you require to knock up a meal for 2!
The wild life that you see each day from the windows is truly amazing as a family of seals use to swim past most days, the amount of different feathered friends were also amazing to see.
The location is perfect for exploring the rest of the Island as once you drive back up the little lane you are back onto the main road to Dunvegan or going in the other direction Portree and shops etc

“Compact accommodation with adequate furniture”
Reviewed 12 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Couch and seating in lounge area lacking in proper support, not good for people who have back problems. Fortunately there were 2 garden chairs stored in the garage we could use and we brought these into the property for our use. Had these not been there, it would have been dining chairs or the floor!

Hair dryer smoked during use - discontinued using, and a note left for the caretaker/owner

“Amazing”
Reviewed 3 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Never been to Skye, but we will definitely return and we would not look at staying anywhere else.

The croft is a lovely little haven, with everything we needed. The whole pace is spotless, and there were some lovely welcoming touches. Enjoyed an evening in the Kota hut, and spent lots of time watching the birds. From the patio we could see lots of wildlife, curlews, herons, cormorants etc.

Seals visited most days and we walked out to the point to watch them most evenings.

We were very fortunate to see the otter feeding along the shoreline one afternoon, what a privilege.

We cannot wait to come back.

“Great Place to Stay”
Reviewed 4 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

No matter how many times you stay here you will never become tired of the surroundings this dwelling is situated in. The Croft is always kept clean and tidy by the owner and has all the facilities required for a great stay. Ideally suited for up to two people, but transport is essential as it is off the beaten track. Highly recommended. We shall be returning.

“Excellent cottage and location”
Reviewed 10 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

From start to finish nothing was too much trouble. Gail kept in touch with us throughout and gave us some good tips and hints which enhanced our stay on Skye. The cottage's loch/seaside location and its uninterrupted views out to sea are excellent. Inside everything is provided and Gail's attention to detail shines through. Spotless and newly decorated throughout ,the presentation was top class. We would thoroughly recommend this cottage and will be booking again.
