Highly recommended cottage
If you want somw quiet days in a very beautiful and tasteful cottage, this is the right place to stay and look through the big window at the sea- if you are lucky and the wheather is nice, you can wach beautiful sunsets, sitting in very comfortable chairs or you could even sit outside, looking across a small garden to the sea.

Amazing! Stunning Views! Highly Recommended!
it's really difficult to write a review without sounding like all the other reviews! Excellent communication from Michael & Hillary with comprehensive directions including pictures! Warm welcome, wine, homemade bread, shortbread and marmalade. Stunning views, brilliant accommodation, really comfortable bed, everything high quality and spotlessly clean. .Superb base to explore Skye. Good food and beer at the local pub in Stein. We really enjoyed our (too short) stay and will be back! Can't recommend it highly enough!

Little Haven? Heaven more like!
We wanted somewhere off the beaten track and we got it but we didn't really expect anything like An Cala Beag; superb facilities, spotlessly clean and the warmest of warm welcomes from Hilary and Michael. It really did feel like home for the 3 days we stayed there. Great walks, stunning scenery and local legends on the doorstep (visit Trumpan church to find out more!) We'd love to go back but it won't be soon - it's probably booked up for years now!

Perfect apartment, location and wonderful view
Perfect retreat for a relaxing weekend. The apartment was ideal; well equipped and modern with a stunning view. The hosts were welcoming and had gone to the trouble to make homemade shortbread, bread and marmalade for our arrival which was gratefully appreciated! We were fortunate as the weather was ideal and able to fit in a lot of travelling and walking in the various parts of Skye. We even managed to walk to the Old Stein Inn from the apartment (40min). Highly recommended and would definitely return!

An Cala Beag - Wonderful Stay
What a wonderful little haven An Cala Beag is. Our hosts Hilary and Michael provided excellent information to us both before and whilst we enjoyed our stay. They had the perfect balance of being welcoming and letting us know they were there if there was anything that we needed to also giving us the space to enjoy our short stay. The apartment is immaculately finished to a very high standard and it is very clean. It has everything you need for you stay. The views from the large viewing window are the icing on the cake and we hope to come back again perhaps in a different season. Thank you Hilary and Michael for the bottle of Prosecco you gave us to toast in the New Year and of course the lovely bread, homemade marmalade, shortbread biscuits and Christmas Cake.

Amazing place to stay
Right from the booking, Hilary provided excellent communication, and even emailed pictures to help us with directions. The place itself was stunning, absolutely a little piece of heaven. The weather was a bit rough driving over the island, but by the time we eventually got there at 2am, the lights and the heating were on and there was bread and shortbread cookies left out for us. It was warm and cosy for our whole stay, and the view from the massive window as you're sitting having your morning coffee in the living room was beyond stunning. Hilary and her husband were very welcoming and helpful, but gave us enough space that we didn't really notice they were there either. We only wish we could have stayed for longer, we will definitely be back!

Perfect Getaway!
We had the most spectacular three days on Skye. From the moment we pulled into the driveway, we knew we were in for something special. The view is breathtaking! An Cala Beag really is a little haven. The living room was lovely, with a massive picture window. We loved the eating area and kitchen, especially the homemade bread and jam! The bedroom was great, the bed was extraordinarily comfortable. That bedding! We did so much exploring on Skye, that we were thrilled to have such a relaxing place to put up our feet at night. Can't recommend it highly enough! Thank you so much for your hospitality.

Excellent very clean apartment with all facilities that we needed
The stay was very enjoyable, Hilary and Michael made us welcome with some home made bread and preserve. The views from the apartment window were spectacular with the changing weather conditions. The apartment had all modern facilities and decorated to a high standard. Will probably go back sometime.

Truly a little haven!
Our communications with Hilary were always prompt from the start. Instructions (including photos) for locating the apartment were sent ahead of time and were essential! We were met by Hilary and Michael and shown the unit and given a gift of baked goods wine and homemade jam! Their home is attached but completely separate and we rarely saw them so it felt like we had the beautifully landscaped property to ourselves. The picture window was our spot for morning coffee and evening cocktails as we watched the ever changing skies. We had all the cooking equipment we needed as well as essential basic supplies. Thank you for a lovely place to stay. I would highly recommend.
