“This place was superb.”
Reviewed 7 July 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Kirsty's Cottage was immaculate when we arrived (it was a little like entering a modern show house!) and had everything you could possibly require. We had a week of very mixed weather and much appreciated the underfloor heating at times. The sunroom was quite spacious, had fabulous views, and my mobile on EE worked well there. Had there been better weather, we would have really enjoyed the garden which was, like the house, beautifully designed to be attractive functional and very comfortable.
There was plenty scope for walking in the area and our dogs had lots of good walks on both the nearby shore and the quiet roads.

“Perfect place”
Reviewed 29 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We have just returned from our holiday on the isle of skye and we are so pleased we chose to stay at kirsty's cottage.

The cottage is very homely and cosey and beautifully decorated, we have even taken some ideas about decorating back with us! We met Dawn who was very helpful in getting us to the right place and making us feel welcome. The cottage also has everything you need including a good range of dvds, Sky, washing machine and dryer. The weather was unfortunately too warm to test the wood burner and sit in front of the fire which was a shame! We would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone looking to holiday in the Isle of Skye.

The cottage is close enough to Portree for the restaurants, shops but also far enough away to have some peace and solitude. And being central on the Isle made travelling around much less time consuming.
We had a lovely week and it was made even more special by staying in a lovely cottage with a great view. Thank you to Dawn and Andrew for letting out your cottage for others to enjoy!

“Simply Perfection”
Reviewed 24 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This is my first ever review for trip advisor or indeed any other online review site regarding holidays so the fact this holiday has propted me out of my normal indolence is already a good sign!

This is a simply lovely cottage in a heartbreakingly beautiful location. The cottage is extremely warm and cosy thanks to the underfloor heating and well equipped with everything you could want. It is very handily located in a very quiet spot and the garden, thanks to Dawn's regular refilling of its bird feeders (!) attracts a host of lovely birds which are a delight to watch from the breakfast room.

Communications with Dawn and Andrew were always very prompt and Dawn who we dealt with during our time on Skye is a lovely person who was always available if needed but respected our need for seclusion completely.

The island is magical and having never been previously it is all we hoped for and more.

Totally recommended cottage on a most captivating island.

“Cosy retreat with fantastic views”
Reviewed 22 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

John and I couldn't have chosen anywhere better than Skye and Kirsty's Cottage for our wedding and honeymoon. And Dawn and Andrew couldn't have been better hosts. Their cosy beautiful cottage has the most amazing views and was the perfect romantic setting for us. The cottage is extremely comfortable, and has all you could wish for to make it feel like a home from home, from the well equipped kitchen and comfortable bedroom, to the cosy sitting room with its very welcoming wood burner. It was an added bonus to us that we were able to get to know Dawn and Andrew who not only very kindly agreed to be witnesses at our wedding, but provided some wonderful company during our stay. Thank you so much both, we hope to stay in touch and maybe enjoy more good times together in the future. X
