Cozy cottage easy access to Uig and ferry

  • 5 of 5

Joan is a wonderful host and this cottage apartment was cozy and perfect for my needs while exploring the Isle of Skye. The bath, living area and kitchen are downstairs and the bed upstairs. The kitchen had everything to be able to cook for myself. The bed upstairs has a foam top and was very comfortable. The linens for both bed and bath were nice and soft. Easy parking off the road.

Uig right next door. It is small but has restaurant/pub, gas station and little grocery and is very close.

The location makes it very easy to get to the Quiraing, Fairy Glen and Portree. It is very close to the Fairy Glen. The ferry to Isles of Lewis and Harris is so close (in Uig) that I had no problems making the 5:30am ferry out that allowed for a same-day return in the afternoon.

The view out the kitchen window is lovely and makes washing up a very pretty chore!

I would certainly recommend the Old Post Office.
