“Brilliant stay a the Cedar”
Reviewed April 25, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The stay we had at the Cedar was brilliant. This is a great base form which to tour the Island.
The view from the cottage was fantastic and to wake up in the morning to those views of the harbour, unbelievable.

3 nights at The Cedars in Portree was the perfect to unwind and get creative. Very well equipped and immaculately clean. We made great use of the sauna which was fantastic after some long scenic walks.
What a great place to wake up to seagulls and the lap of the waves on the quay.
Thank you so much for fitting us in.
We'd love to return.xx

Just discovered this place on TA...my last visit is here was almost 2 years ago - the previous one being 12 years ago ! but I would come back tomorrow if i could. I've done a lot of self-catering in my time and The Cedar is definitely "Champions League" material. Excellently equipped , and possibly the best location in Portree. The prices are fair , almost to a fault. Pity there aren't more places like this. Absolutely recommendable. If it's available book it ! Don't hesitate !

“Excellent very cosy house”
Reviewed February 4, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We stayed here for a week at the end of January. Weather outside was very mixed but the house was always warm and cosy. Although a lot of restaurants were closed for the winter there were several hotels that served good food in the evenings. Location of the house was superb for our purposes (photography).

First time on Sky. Definitely right choice. Picturesque and lively harbour, but also quiet for the night's sleep.

“fantastic self catering holiday home”

We visited the isle of Skye in May and we rented this holiday home.
First of all we had an astonishing view from our dining room over the harbor. The house itsself is very cosy and everything you need is provided for. The kitchen is exceptionally equiped : toaster dishwasher, professional knives, microwave oven and so on. We have the habit to bring our own equipment but in this case there was no need. Never seen anything like this! On top there is a sauna and a wirlpool bath tub.
The island Skye itsself is very beautifull. We will certainly return!
