Fantastic location with amazing views you will never tire of.
Fantastic location with amazing views of the peninsula. Comfortable accommodation with plenty of room. Dog friendly and a great big enclosed garden so we knew he was safe. Well equipped kitchen with full size fridge freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer. Cottage would benefit from handrails as both doors in/out have steps and whilst the welcome bubbly was a really nice touch, a small welcome pack of tea/coffee would be great in case you arrive late and don’t think to pack this. Definitely thinking of a return visit, so the above are not negatives just feedback.

Fabulous stay
On arrival we met the owners Jeanette & David who are lovely people they where very helpful and told us all about the local area,David is a wine merchant which we found very handy as we didn’t need to go all the way to Portree !! The house has absolutely everything you could possibly think of , the photos make it look small but it’s not at all it’s a very spacious house with two bathrooms, three toilets , four very good sized bedrooms a great kitchen dining area and a lounge with views that just take your breath away ! We sat outside on the terrace watching a Sea Eagle which we saw every day , the Waternish bay is stunning . If you like cooking the kitchen has everything you need , very impressive, this house has the feeling of it being a home and it made our holiday ! Can’t wait to go back in the winter and get that fire roaring ! Thanks Jeanette & David the welcome bubbly was a lovely touch as was meeting you both!

Wonderful views
The bungalow was very well equipped and roomy with stunning views from the living room(. (huge windows) comfy bed and warm. Although we had very strong winds we were able to visit many places of outstanding beauty. The book 'Walks on Skye' , was very useful. If you have a dog take an extendable lead as they need to be kept on a lead in most places; there are lots of sheep. We had a lovely time and appreciated the bubbly on arrival

Old unmaintained cottage, spoiled what should've been great holiday.
First the good news ,- bedrooms, linens provided and bathrooms were clean and comfortable. However, cottage in poor condition. Needs a deep clean especially in kitchen. All cutlery and several pots and pans were dirty and still had food residue on them. All electrical appliances not clean. All windows were filthy and surrounding woodwork had neither been cleaned or varnished for a long time. Broken furniture leaning against wall to stand up against wall plus outside patio wall in dangerous state with large rocks loose. I could list quite a few more items. We spoke to owner when she phoned the day we arrived and she blamed the previous renters who she said left the property in a terrible state. Said she spent a long time cleaning and was even down on her hands and knees. We saw no evidence of this e.g. Kitchen floor was still dirty. I agree this is an older property but it is not well maintained and was not clean when we got there. As far as I can see the only difference between now and the poor review provided in July 2017 is the outside walls have been repainted.

A wonderful, cosy escape
A fantastic cottage located on a beautiful part of Skye. Jeanette is a warm and welcoming host and I'd definitely recommend booking Talamh Ur. The cottage was a great base for our week-long stay. It is typical of the style in that part of the island, very clean and cosy, and really well-equipped. The large living room and kitchen diner provide plenty of space for spending time together, while the four bedrooms allow people to spread out where they want a bit of time alone. Towels and bedding are all provided, and very clean and fresh. The garden is spacious and fully enclosed, brilliant for kids or, in our case, two lively dogs who love to chase a ball. The views out over the loch are spectacular and you can spend hours just watching the light shift and change over the hills. The silence was wonderful, just the sounds of the birds and sheep to be heard. After a year of working from home and a constant stream of online meetings, it was a fantastic escape from the electronic life to quiet seclusion. (But don't worry, there is really good wi-fi in the cottage, so you're not completely cut-off.) We had a wonderful stay and hope we'll be able to visit again.
