We loved our cottage in Portree. If the weather had been better, it would have been perfect. Sue, the property manager, was so good to work with and so helpful. We would come back in an instant.

Stayed in this cosy house for 5 nights while working in Portree. Everything was spotlessly clean, comfortable instructions were clear and easily understood. Would definetely re-visit this accomodation hopefully for leisure next time. Need your own hair dryer unless owner supplies this for future.

Because we were using trains and buses to get around Scotland, we appreciated Brightwater Cottage's close proximity to downtown Portree with its bus stop on Somerled Square, restaurants, co-op grocery, and tourist information office, where we were able to get bus schedules and seat reservations...More
