“FANTASTIC HOLIDAY COTTAGE”
Reviewed April 19, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We have just returned from the best holiday we have had in the UK in a long time. The cottage is beautiful, warm, modern, spacious and exceptionally clean. We were a party of 3 adults and 2 children (aged 9 and 14)and Hugo the GSP and there was plenty of space for us all.

The kids were happy we had WiFi and it worked very well for us.

The kitchen is very well equipped. Even had a slow cooker which was ideal. After a long day exploring the beautiful and magisitc island we returned home to our dinner being ready.

location was fantastic with in a short drive we were able to do all the things on our list, kilt rock (walking distance), Staffin Bay for Dinosaur footprints and the museum (3 miles). The Quiraing (8 miles),faerie glen and island life museum (20 mins). The longest we drove was 1 hour to The Fairy Pools and Dunvegan Castle and not to mention Portree is just 20 min drive.

Thank you Rachel and Dougie for such a wonderful cottage. Darren and I hope to return without the children so that we can do some serious walking.

“A great place to relax”
Reviewed February 22, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Very comfortable and clean modern bungalow, with the all important wifi for teens. Good utility space, making drying of wet outdoor gear/ storing of boots (essential in wild, windy Feb) very easy.
Wonderfully light main room, with huge windows providing great views of sea and sky. Very quiet location, yet great for getting out and about.
Wifi went off on occasion, but resetting the router sorted it out and it ran well with 4 people all using it. Warm and well insulated building, with plenty of hot water, although a strange temperature difference between kitchen top (scaldingly hot) and bath (not hot enough). Great showers. Tastefully furnished and plenty of storage space.
Rachel was generously accommodating, lending us a coat for the week, as our 11 year old had forgetters hers!
Overall, excellent value as half term break: would recommend and return.

“Excellent”
Reviewed December 9, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Stayed up over a weekend with some friends. The house was huge (there were only 4 of us, but you could probably fit up to 8), stylishly decorated and had lovely big windows (through which we could watch the rain!). The accommodation was spotlessly clean and every effort was made to make us feel welcome and comfortable.

Having visited Skye many times, I can happily say that this is the best place I have stayed there!

“Absolutely Wonderful...Would stay again!”
Reviewed September 14, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We traveled as group of 5 adults and were extremely comfortable. We arrived very late but were graciously let in, we had a little trouble finding it in the dark but just look for the small square sign on the left coming from Portree and it's there. The location was quiet and perfectly suited to our needs.

The Cottage was spacious with living space for us all, the bedrooms were also well laid out and big enough for us all. Loved the fact that it has two bathrooms and full kitchen. We only stayed two nights and it was great, definitely worth a much longer stay. It also has the best wifi of our trip!

I honestly can't say enough good things about this location and the service and communication we received was fantastic.

“We will keep coming back”
Reviewed June 26, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Last year my wife and I spent the night at Rachel's B&B. This year we decided to bring the entire family and spend our time in one of her cottages. There were 6 of us total. We had a wonderful time. The entire house was new, modern, clean and the best wifi on our trip. We felt right at home. Rachel and Dougie are the perfect hosts. We will keep coming back.

“Immaculate cottage in a beautiful location”
Reviewed July 12, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

people found this review helpful

We stayed here for three nights with our 11 year old son, and wish we could have stayed longer. The cottage had every convenience, was very spacious and perfectly located just minutes away from some of the island's most spectacular sites. An easy drive into Portree, but far enough away to truly be "away from it all."
