A Perfect, Peaceful Retreat
We had a wonderful stay at Garraidh Ghorm Pod. From the outset, Catriona was incredibly helpful – phoning ahead to give directions, ask if we needed anything, leaving lovely fresh eggs from their chickens. We felt very welcomed to the Pod before we even arrived. The Pod itself is lovely. Catriona has clearly put a great deal of thought into the design, layout and functionality of the Pod. It is spacious, with a very well equipped kitchen. The induction cooker was great to cook on. The bed was comfortable, and the bathroom and shower were neat and well set out. The décor is thoughtful, tasteful and compliments the space perfectly. The unique selling point for us was the fact that the Pod is on its own. It is set in a spacious open garden, which Catriona and Peter are clearly investing in making into a lovely space, with lots of thoughtful environmental and wildlife-friendly touches. The peace and quiet was simply wonderful. We know that holiday Pods are becoming increasingly popular, and have seen a lot of sites with several together. The fact that Garraidh Ghorm Pod is on its own, with the space and privacy to enjoy the open space around it, with the hills behind and the view of the sea in front of the Pod, was wonderful. The setting is peaceful, with local crofts surrounding around you. The wildlife was excellent – the experience of seeing the buzzards perched just feet away from you was delightful. It is an easy stroll down to the sea along the lanes, and the spectacular marine mammal and bird-watching opportunities at Rubha Hunish are within walking distance. The Quiraing is a short drive away, and offers one of Scotland’s most iconic walking opportunities close by. I wholeheartedly recommend Garraidh Ghorm Pod to anyone looking for a peaceful, relaxing and comfortable retreat. Catriona could not be more helpful, and it was a wonderful holiday experience.

Fantastic stay in a very rural part of Skye
Booked for 5 nights here. Firstly, the area is just lovely. Feels remote and very peaceful. Nice walk down to Aird and the beach there. Otherwise a lovely drive in either direction on the circular road. Loved watching the wildlife from the pod- birds of prey, rabbits, stoats and of course all the sheep and cattle nearby as well as chickens, ducks and horses. The pod itself is just perfect for two. Very clean and well equipped. Lovely toiletries and an eco friendly approach with recycling/composting etc which is just our thing. The hosts even provided fresh eggs, tea and coffee etc and extended checkout on the last day. Very good communication though we had no problems or need to get in touch. The WiFi connection, blue tooth music and tv reception were excellent as was the underfloor heating which we needed as Autumn arrived while we were here. We will definitely recommend this pod to our friends- something we are usually reluctant to do. A very special place.

Fantastic relaxing break!
Thank you for a most enjoyable stay at Garraidh Ghorm- the pod was supremely comfy and cosy, and had all the facilities we wanted. Good strong WiFi signal, built in Bluetooth speakers was an added bonus. We’ve stayed in a few glamping pods, and I like how this one is just that wee bit roomier for accommodating clothes/belongings so it’s easier for moving about without tripping over stuff. We didn’t end up needing the underfloor heating as we were blessed with amazing weather, so just switched it to standby instead as we were warm enough, but I can see how this would be good in the colder months! Loved the peace and tranquility of where you are, and enjoyed watching buzzards soaring above whilst we sat outside watching the world go by. So many wonderful places to visit nearby with stunning landscapes, I’ll have amazing photos to remember my time here. Thank you to the warm hospitality of Catriona and Peter too, nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely recommend to friends and will definitely be back!
