About the Owner

Having holidayed on Skye and the West coast of Scotland over the years, we decided to build a home on Skye, for ourselves and others to enjoy.

Wonderful house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Pooltiel View 8th to 22nd October 2016.

Directions to house were simple and it was easy to find.

First impressions were good, but the house is fabulous and the views are great, especially the sheep and cows outside the front door.

The house is lovely and comfortable and the photos don't do it justice. It is very well equipped and can easily accommodate 8 people but still has loads of space.

The location is good and it's a nice walk either to the village of Glendale or to the lighthouse at Neist Point.

Visited Dunvegan Castle, Talisker Distillery and Portree and would recommend them all. Skye is absolutely stunning and we were really lucky with the weather, only had rain 2 days out of the 14.

The addition of the internet will be a big plus, I personally didn't miss it, but hubby and daughter did.

We would definitely return to this house and hopefully it will be sooner rather than later.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We're glad you experienced good weather during your stay and were able to enjoy the island. BT were booked to install broadband but then gave a revised cost of £6741.00 for the installation, so at the present time it is not an option for us. However, free wifi is available at Glendale Village Hall, which we understand is accessible even when the hall is closed. Also as an alternative cottage, our neighbouring property Waterfall View (ref 732295 on HomeAway) does have free wifi.

Great views, nice house, but could be "wow"

  • 3 of 5

The house is large and in a great location. It was clean and well equipped. There were a few maintenance issues, e.g. Light bulbs not working, loose toilet seats, some toilet seats missing their lids, door locks stiff and needing to be oiled. Also the sofas have seen better days. These are relatively minor issues but should really be attended to. For the price it would be good to have broadband, although the reception at Glendale hall was fine - but you do have to sit in the car park as the hall is locked when not in use.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. We have looked to install broadband, however, BT's charge for doing so is £6741.00, so unfortunately it is not an option for us. The maintenance issues you mentioned will be looked into. We're pleased you enjoyed the location of the cottage and found it to be clean and well equipped.

Beautifully located cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a brilliantly well kept holiday cottage overlooking the Loch Pooltiel that we had the pleasure of staying in. The surrounding area is wonderful and particularly when it starts to snow. The main lounge is lovely with the log burner and has a large window (although not in the pictures) to gaze out of towards the Loch.

We visited Neist point light house which was only a 10 minute drive and also ventured through the Cuillin Valley. With such friendly service, we highly recommend this cottage and hope to be back soon!

A wonderful house in a beautiful nature.

  • 5 of 5

We were two chlidren and six adults, and pleanty of place in the big house with four bedrooms with bathrooms. The house was furnish very suitably. The carekeeper was very kind and helpful.

Even if it was raining a little every day and not much sun, the sky was fantastic in its coulor in the evenings. We mostly did long walkingtours. Dunvegan Castle and and a sailningtour, to look at seal, was a great experience.

I would surely recommed friends to rent the house, if need a big house.

Location

From the Owner

The plot enjoys magnificent sea or rural views. It is quietly located, set in natural croft land with magnificent views of Loch Pooltiel, Dunvegan Head and on a clear day the Outer Hebridean Islands. The cottage was designed by a local architect and has been finished to a high standard.

Skye is the most important centre for Gaelic culture outside of the Western Isles, and almost half the population speak Gaelic fluently; the Gaelic College on Sleat (Skye's most southern tip) is the most important in Scotland. For a sample of the local culture, visitors to the island during mid July can experience the two-week long Skye and Lochalsh Festival - the Feis an Eilean. One of the most popular sights on Skye is the Cuillin ridge, made up of jagged snow-topped peaks, which can be seen from miles around, and are suitable for experienced walkers. The other main attraction on the island is the unusual rock formations of the Trotternish Peninsula, where the pillars and pinnacles are at their most dramatic in the Quiraing above Staffin Bay, on the east coast. Whilst on the island, the capital Portree is worth a visit, with its picturesque fishing harbour encircled with restaurants, and a mile or so out of town, visitors can also experience the Aros Centre.

10 minute walk to the pier with mackerel fishing at high tide.

A beach can be found at Glendale.

Facilities

From the Owner

The cottage has been finished to a high standard boasting three en suite bathrooms and the main bathroom is adjacent to the fourth bedroom. The lounge has floor to ceiling windows to take full advantage of the fantastic views. In the colder evenings it is very pleasant to sit in front of the wood burner whilst watching the ever changing vistas. With no light pollution, at night, there are amazing starry skies. It is possible to see the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights). Highland cattle and sheep graze here in front of the cottage and there is plenty of wildlife to be seen. For larger parties of up to 16 the neighbouring property (ref 732295 or ref 8033987 on Owners Direct) can also be booked.
