Beautiful scenic Balmacara
Lovely home, beautiful view, secluded, tranquil and relaxing stay. The pictures online do not do justice to this property. Thanks for sharing your home with us Antonina.

beautiful and near skye
it's a beautiful place especially for kids. the house isn't that modern and in the kitchen there isn't enough cutlery (small spoons, small knifes to cut cheese and veggies) for a group of eight. the view is great and the location to visit the isle of skye and surrounding is perfect.

Great family holiday
A wonderful, relaxing family home. Great neighbours. Excellent communications with the owner who bore with us during COVID cancellations. Thanks for a great holiday.

Stunning location
We loved our stay, the view from the property is totally amazing. We saw otters and seals. The property was in very easy reach of the Skye bridge and some fabulous walks. We walked over to Plockton (7 miles) great track and stunning views. The Woodland walks right next to the property are very nice short walks. Property had great amenities, providing binoculars was a very nice touch. Also was a really bonus that bath and hand towels were provided. I would highly recommend this property.

Perfect location
Lovely home in a perfect location. Away from it all but close to Eilean Donan castle, Kyle of Lochalsh and over the sea (bridge)to Skye. Also the Applecross peninsula - what a fabulous road. Although you could have just sat in the house all day just looking at the view. Saw porpoises, seals and otters from the house.Didn’t want to leave.

Perfect family adventure
We stayed in this lovely house for a week of sunshine, views, wildlife, walks, swims, trips to Skye and family time. The house is very spacious and comfortable for 9. Well appointed with everything you might need. The living area is very large and we enjoyed our early mornings looking out of the vast window with binoculars for otters & porpoises - then out of the door later to hop on our paddle boards to join them! A great week, thank you Antonina. We would love to return.

Lovely home, beautiful location
We had a fabulous week staying at Iona cottage, plenty of space for all 9 off us. The views from the cottage are amazing. Great base for exploring the area, we visited the village of Plockton, fairy pools on Skye and the coral beach on Skye - a must see A very enjoyable week

Iona cottage balmacara
Great property in beautiful location and fantastic for wildlife spotting direct from the house - we saw Eagles and Seals nearly every day, porpoises, dolphins and an Otter on the beach.
