We stayed in this well-equipped cottage for an entire week and enjoyed the beautiful views from the cottage and walks in the Isle of Skye very much. The Cullins were a stunnig experience for our adult sons who grew up in the Alps and enjoy mountaineering very much The entire Isle of Skye is well worth a visit.

We loved our stay at the WIld Orchid Cottage. The views from the sitting room over the loch and over the cliffs on the other side of the bay are simply amazing, we spend a good time simply sitting on the sofa and gawking at the view (if we weren't out and about walking around in the beautiful landscape. Really recommend a walk to Oronsay island). The cottage is located in between a few houses...

Traveled with 3 kids and 2 border collies. Found cottage no problem with helpful directions from the manager/owner. When we entered the cottage it was spotless, and the layout of the cottage was perfect for us. Location was great, as all the sights seemed to be no more than a half hour away, and when we came back from the long hikes and cold wet weather, there was a wood burning stove to warm up...

Management response:

Thank you for your lovely review. The weather can be rather wild at times in winter but it doesn't seem to stop people getting out and about and enjoying the Island. We're glad the Cottage worked out so well for you and kept you cosy!

Management response:

Great to hear you enjoyed your stay at Wild Orchid Cottage. The garden is very popular with our dog visitors who don't seem to mind what the weather is like!
