“A great cottage in a great location”

Went for a 3 night stay with a couple of friends from work. We were not disappointed. From booking to payment, Sue (the owner) was extremely helpful. Directions were exact and simple. We arrived on Skye early and were even allowed access before the agreed 4pm entry time. Much appreciated.

The cottage is very central but also very quiet. The cottage is well equipped, very comfortable and cosy. We cooked in the cottage every night and enjoyed a wine sitting at the fire. We really enjoyed our stay and would have no hesitation in returning or recommending to others.

“Lovely cottage, beautiful views.”
Reviewed October 5, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Brightwater Cottage is a very comfortable, warm cosy cottage, nicely decorated & furnished through out. The kitchen was well equipped. Bedrooms are spacious & beds very comfortable. Views from upstairs are absolutely outstanding over the harbour & sea. Easy walk to the shops, pubs & restaurants. Convenient parking across the road from cottage.

Lovely cottage, well equipped and very comfortable. Short distance to the village, and absolutely wonderful sea views from the cottage and garden. Perfect.

Comfortable cottage in a great location on the road out of Portree - as all principal rooms face the road we thought there would be traffic noise but there was none! Bedrooms are all large and nicely furnished; the two upstairs rooms have stunning views over the harbour - I was able to lie in bed with my morning coffee enjoying the view. Brightwater Cottage is comfortably furnished and the kitchen is well equipped. There is street parking available opposite the cottage and it is less than two minutes walk to the nearest restaurant and less than three minutes to the nearest pub and supermarket.

“Perfect 'Base camp' in the city center for visiting Skye/ Hiking”
Reviewed August 11, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

(French family, 1 father + 3 kids 10/14/15)
We spent a week in Aug. We did daily walks in the Island (wonderfull walks...). The cottage is well located in the city centre literally 2 min from shops and 3 min from the harbour. Rooms are spacious, and the 2 rooms from upper level have wonderfull view on the harbour and the sea. It's on the road but there is no noise in the night. Clean and well equiped including a dryer _ useful in this country :) )
Clearly a recommanded option for Portree
