“Impeccably maintained”
Reviewed June 21, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We really enjoyed our stay at Hillside Cottage. It offers all modern commodities anyone could wish for, all in a very quiet setting. The owners are particularly thoughtful, even leaving fresh flowers and a birthday gift for my wife. A bonus is that the place is completely new and it is superbly adapted for someone in a wheelchair.

“Bright, spacious, and cozy”
Reviewed June 15, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We really enjoyed our stay at Hillside Cottage. Gail, one of the owners, is really attentive to details, and the house is like new and impeccably maintained. We had everything we expected and more, including even fresh flowers brought by the owners. One additional bonus is how the house is superbly designed for wheelchair users.

“A fantastic place to stay on the beautiful Island of Skye”
Reviewed April 22, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

I can not rate highly enough Hillside Cottage, we thoroughly enjoyed the Island of Skye and having such a lovely cottage as a base just added to our holiday.

The cottage is beautifully decorated, spacious and has everything you could need during your stay. Gail and Spencer were very helpful and came down to welcome us and answer any questions we had.

The cottage was really comfortable, warm and cosy with plenty of room for a family of 4. We even got to use the log burner one evening.

Dunvegan is only a short drive from the cottage, although Dunvegan is small it has pretty much everything you could need such as a local shop, garage, gift shop, cafes and restaurants.We ate at the lovely Old School restaurant for two nights and I would highly recommend.

We hope to be back to the Isle of Skye in the future and would definitely look at staying at Hillside again.

“Home from home”
Reviewed March 31, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Hillside is a lovely cottage, great care as been taken to make it home from home. Everything was spotless and welcoming. The location of the cottage makes an excellent base for touring this breathtaking island. All the information provided on walks to enjoy was very welcome Quiraing was our favourite. We will definitely return in the near future.

A beautiful spacious well equipped cottage. Gail and Spencer were very helpful with any enquiries we had and came down to see if we had settled in ok. Great information pack with plenty of walking info and general help around the Island. The beds are so comfortable. In fact the whole cottage just has a cozy feel about it.. We even got to use the fire one night. Beautiful place and hope to get back soon. Thanks
