What a deceptive house! It may look small on the photos but inside it's spacious bedrooms and lounge are huge. The kitchen is not as big but still plenty of move to move around and loads of equipment. The updaters bedrooms have comfy chairs and sofa to sit and gaze over the bay. The shops and numerous bars and restaurants are minutes walk away. Parking on the front is a bit hit and miss but after 6pm parking in the town centre is free and again only a few minutes walk away.
The cottage is clean and generally well equipped. The heating worked efficiently and it was very convenient to shops and easy access for walking around Portree.The location was good for most of the other attractions. The limited parking spaces meant there was a degree of uncertainty about how close the car would be able to be parked to the accommodation. This was a little disconcerting.
Fantastic cottage. Beautiful views over Portree bay especially from the bedrooms. Perfect location for exploring Skye. WONDERFUL
Lots of space. All rooms except the kitchen have stunning sea views. Clean and well equipped.
The down sides: poor lighting in the living room and inefficient heating (perhaps it did work well but we didn't manage to work out how to control it).
This is a great rental property. It is situated very close to town centre yet quite peaceful. Views from the upstairs bedrooms are lovely. All three bedrooms are spacious. It is furnished well throughout and spotlessly clean. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property. Sue is very easy to deal with and extremely pleasant.
We stayed for a week in Brightwater Cottage. The owner Sue was very easy to deal with from the initial booking onwards. There is parking across the road from the cottage. The spaces do fill up quickly particularly around tea time but we were fortunately never stuck without a space though maybe not just directly across the road from the cottage.
As someone who used to own a holiday home the cottage felt like we had 'come home'. It is very clean and the kitchen is well equipped. The tv has freesat and all the UK channels anyone would need particularly on a wet day! The wifi worked well. It is deceptively large inside and the rooms are all of a good size.
The cottage is a short walk into the centre of Portree and there is a coastal walk a short distance in the other direction. Would recommend.
