“Top of the Hill ”
Reviewed 11 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Hill Cottage is about 9 miles from Portree on the Isle of Skye and sits on its own amongst a group of crofters cottages at Park Bernisdale.
A number of things were immediately obvious when we arrived at Hill Cottage; the layout, the craftsmanship and the amenities were superior and the views across the Little Minch to Harris are just stunning.
Hill Cottage is a superior property and excellently located for easy access in your car to the Waternish and Trotternish peninsulas.
Margaret and David provided us with a warm welcome as well as goodies and a bottle of wine.
Margaret has set no rules but simply asks that guests treat Hill Cottage as if it where their own. We did and soaked up beautiful Skye. We'll be back.

“Peace, tranquility and home comforts”
Reviewed 16 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

person found this review helpful

What a place! The cottage itself is beautifully equipped and decorated to a high standard with everything you could need for a holiday in Skye. The bed was really comfy and the wifi worked well throughout the cottage. The views are stunning and watching the sunset over the Loch looking out towards Harris was a sight of joy most evenings. We had a wonderful week in Skye and wished it could've been longer. The weather was kind and we got round most of the island, but mostly cooked at the cottage as the kitchen was so well equipped and it was a lovely way to finish off the day eating local produce and watching the sun set slowly beneath the horizon. Great location, quiet apart from the sound of the occasional sheep, yet perfectly appointed to get to all parts of the island. The people on Skye are so friendly and we will certainly be back, it just can't come soon enough!

“nice relaxing cottage”
Reviewed 30 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We enjoyed our stay at the Hill Cottage which was easy to reach thanks to a detailed description provided by the owner who welcomed us warmly over the phone. The place itself is cozy and extremely neat. The view from the windows is breathtaking and after a day of hiking one can enjoy a cup of tea at the fireplace in a relax chair. A car is a must though. The internet is fast, we didn't use the TV but it's available in three rooms.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 5 January 2016 for a stay in April 2014

Even though I went to this cottage 2 years ago, it was FABULOUS! It was my first time to Portree and I found this cottage and me and my dad booked and went here. First off the view was out of this world! Then when we went in and I loved how tidy and clean it was, also the view from the front room! Also the bedrooms were really good and the beds are really comfy also the shower was wonderful,Wifi was excellent and I wished could have stayed longer. But I might be going back this month so VERY happy!

“Fantastic cottage with stunning views”
Reviewed 7 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This cottage is new with all modern ammenities, Nothing is missing. It was clean and tidy. We appreciated the comfortable living room with the fireplace.

It is a great place to stay to visit Skye, not far from principal road, but in a silent place.

And the owner Margaret is very friendly and easy to deal with.

We would return without hesitation.

“How was it you say? Fantastic!”
Reviewed 6 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

What a beautiful holiday home, it was an absolute pleasure to stay at Hill Cottage. We pulled up outside after a very long drive and couldn't quite believe our luck, the cottage was just as described (if not better). It has every home comfort, the underfloor heating means it stays comfortably warm and the log burner gives the home a lovely cosy feel. The beds were comfy, the kitchen is well equipped and the leather sofas made it feel like so much more than a holiday rental.

Communication with the owner was excellent, Margaret was quick to respond to emails and called us on the day of our arrival to make sure we had arrived and that everything was OK.

We would go back in a heartbeat and hope to return to Hill Cottage in the very near future.
