We absolutely loved our 6 night stay in the Garden Wing Cottage. It had everything we could want and more. Spotlessly clean. Views are amazing and yet only a 10-15 minute walk into the town centre. Weather was a bit wet and windy so we used a local taxi firm who also gave an excellent service. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing break, on the beautiful Isle of Skye. Pamela is a fabulous hostess, and is on hand ready to help if needed.

Hi Fiona and thanks for the lovely review. You were great guests too, left everything lovely and clean, tidied up after yourselves and basically looked after the place. It makes our changeovers in these strange times all the easier, thank you. I'm sure our paths will cross at some point, perhaps for a return visit at some point. Let's hope that we can get everything completed before your next visit! New conservatory roof etc. All the best meantime. Pamela

My missus does the best homework. A few clicks and a gem such as Kiltaraglen pops up. I had no idea what to expect and had assumed a room in a guest house. We'd had a fairly long day driving up from Inveraray (tourist speed and lots of stops!) so were definitely looking to crash out. We were met by Pam who proceeded to let us know all of the useful info about the Isle of Skye and about Kiltaraglen. On site Tawny Owls, Northern Lights and the Old Man of Storr were on the menu. The Garden Wing is such a brilliant space. 2 bathrooms, on 2 floors. Kitchen, bedroom and conservatory. Pam (and Kevin) were local nature guides and were a mass of great information. Pam lent us 2, very well thumbed and marked OS maps of Skye, which proved invaluable. A great legacy from years gone by. We both mentioned the maps when we were chatting about the house, a few days ago - a great memeory. Superb place to stay. We will get back there, eventually! Thanks Pam and Kevin :-)

Oh, Thanks Guys! Lovely that you enjoyed all Skye (and Kiltaraglen) offer. Its lovely when our guests are able to get out and about and enjoy our lovely Island. Glad the maps were of help - we certainly hope that our paths will cross at some point again. Currently we are heading into a very strange winter. Let's hope that we can all continue to enjoy the wonderful fresh air and open spaces during Autumn, whatever the restrictions elsewhere. Best regards Pam & Kevin

It's great to be a 15 min walk from the center of Portree as it's so busy. We had a one bedroom self catering unit which was more like a 5 star hotel complete with a spa tub in the bedroom. It was very peaceful and the unit was beautiful. The kitchen was really well equipped. It wasn't large but big enough for two of us for 5 nights. The hosts are on site and so helpful with any questions. I would go back for sure!

We stayed at Kiltaraglen House in Holly View Anexe and absolutely loved it! The cottage is so well equipped, a home from home. It was so comfortable and relaxing. We enjoyed cooking a roast dinner and many other meals. Portree is brilliant base for exploring Skye. Pam was so helpful and welcoming! Providing maps and tips for making the most of our stay. We really loved our stay on the Island and at Kiltaraglen and hope to stay again! Thank you so much Pam!

Lovely stay. We had a quick visit for just two nights, we stayed in the cottage with our two children (9 and 13). Cottage was beautiful, very clean and had everything needed for self catering. Pamela was a lovely host, gave us some fab local information and also provided some gifts for our kids which was a lovely touch. Would highly recommend and when we come back o Skye again we will definitely stay here.

A lovely place to stay. Within walking distance of Portree but far enough out to be quiet and peaceful. We stayed in the annex which is small but plenty of room for two, with a splendid bedroom complete with bath. Furnished to a very high standard. Pam was a lovely host and clearly knows exactly how to make guests feel welcome and enjoy their stay.

Stayed for a few days in the Garden Wing, what a lovely accommodation. It is very spacious indeed, comfortably furnished to a very high standard, not your run of the mill holiday cottage at all! Gardens are lovely and location excellent, not in the centre of Portree but short easy walk away. Pam the owner is very nice and helpful. The cottage was very clean. Would definitely stay here again next time we visit.

First visit to Skye and stayed in the Annexe.

Pam greeted us as we arrived, settled us in and made sure everything was ok.

It’s a fabulous location, fabulous property with fabulous hosts.

The property is comfortable, cosy, clean and offers everything we needed for our short break.

Don’t hesitate if wondering whether to book or not it is a fabulous wee place!!!

I stayed in the self-catering cottage with my partner. The cottage was comfortable and had all essential equipment. The cottage is located within a 10 minutes walk of Portree. In order to secure the cottage, we had to pay a deposit and the full amount prior to our arrival and due to the unavailability of credit card equipment, we incurred additional bank charges when transferring the money to a bank account in another country. Overall, a pleasant stay.

We booked the Garden Cottage for a week in September. I was a bit anxious after reading reviews by people who stayed at Kiltaraglen House on coach tours as I imagined swarms of people on the premises. I could not have been more wrong. First of all, there were no coach tours while we were there but moreover, I doubt if it had been a problem. The Rose Cottage is nicely independent of the main house and we felt we had the property to ourselves with parking set apart and lovely views of the grounds.
The cottage is beautifully appointed with lovely furnishings and decor. This is not a cottage decorated with hand me downs and left over furnishings. It's about high quality attention to detail - even as far as fresh floral arrangements. The kitchen had everything we needed and was a delight to prepare and eat meals in. While it is cosy, the cottage is bigger than it looks in the pictures. We enjoy the independence that self catering gives us and the mix of privacy in a quiet, yet central location was just perfect. The walk to town felt like a 5 minute stroll but I think it is more like 10 minutes. It was lovely to be able to slip down to the bakery early in the morning, check out the shop windows and then head back to enjoy a breakfast in the warmth and quiet of our own little haven. There is a trail that runs beside and behind the property that my father enjoyed on a sunny day, while we were out tackling some gentle hills. For anyone interested in a high quality haven within walking distance of the main centre of Portree and centrally located for all of Skye I cannot recommend Rose Cottage highly enough.
