“A clean and well equipped cottage, full of character, in a beautiful location.”

Kerr Cottage is a little way out of Portree, along a quiet coastal road. It is set in a beautiful spot, overlooking the sea and the Isle of Raasay. We experienced a warm friendly welcome from the owner on our arrival and had all we needed in the cottage. The cottage is a charming place to stay, full of character, spacious and light. We were a party of 2 adults and 2 children and it suited us perfectly. The delightful garden is also very well kept. It was useful being fairly near to Portree and its facilities. It was our first trip to Skye and we were taken by the varied natural beauty of the island and enjoyed walks along the coast and in the mountains.

“Paradise, the perfect retreat after days of walking and sightseeing”
Reviewed 22 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Beautiful property and garden, we had a young(ish) child and three dogs with us and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The cottage has everything you could possibly think of, including games for wet days! Wi-fi worked great for keeping an eye on our business messages. A very warm welcome, highly recommend - thank you Stuart.

“relaxing, comfortable base on the beautiful isle of Skye”
Reviewed 16 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Dog friendly cottage. Two good sized bedrooms with outstanding views from your bed. Garden beautifully maintained with lots of wildlife. Not luxurious but a friendly, warm base to return to on a daily basis. Internet slow to zero, but that was a blessing!

“Good value for money, stunning views”

Good value and dog friendly. Lovely garden with plenty of areas to explore (even a cat for extra entertainment, seemed very wise and they never encountered each other face to face!). Stuart lives on site so is available if you need anything. Plenty of room in the cottage, although steep drop to parking area so beware if you car has a clutch on the way out. Quite a distance from Portree if you don't drive so just beware.

We have just returned from an unforgettable week in Skye. Kerr Cottage provided a fabulous base from which to explore this lovely island. The cottage is located in the most beautiful spot, right next to the beach with some of the most amazing views on the island. It was immaculate, beautifully presented throughout and had everything that we needed for a perfect stay. We would thoroughly recommend it.
