“Beautiful Cottage , Beautiful View”

This lovely new cottage is spacious and missing nothing. The artwork and decor are nice but nothing compares to the views. There are spectacular views from every room. There is outdoor seating below the master bedroom window as well as a picnic table for outdoor dining. The kitchen is large and well appponted. It's has everything you need including a fan assisted oven and halogen cooker. There is a Coop close by for groceries. There is every house hold item you need. We picked up soap and shampoo but everything else is supplied. There is a washer and a clothes line which is a huge help. The fireplace and wood stove is a lovely touch. The underfloor heating keeps the place cozy. The bed was soft and large and has an en suite shower /toilet. There is a twin room which we did not use and a second bath. Each room has a TV. There are doors between rooms and it was so quiet we never heard the door.The owner is lovely. She responds to email and is very helpful. It is peaceful and serene and we did not miss the city sounds at all. Our only complaint is that we have to leave. We will definitely return for another holiday.

A beautifully presented cottage in a stunning location with all the amenities of home. The wife and myself spent a long weekend in this cottage and would highly recommend it. Some cottages look like self catering but this is like stepping into someones newly finished home. Everything has been thought off and the finishing touches would put any 5 star hotel to shame. Underfloor heating and a wood burning stove ensure that even the worst of the Skye weather can be left behind at the door. You will not be disappointed!!!
