Did not enjoy the stay at the property

  • 1 of 5

I have stayed at the property for 3 nights, I was looking for properties specifically with internet as i had to work or at least check emails from work as i was the only responsible person who was looking after office work from UK during Christmas holidays. My initial impression of the property was good but the owners did not let me know that the internet and phone were not working before arriving. When i arrived i saw a note and realized that there was no internet or phone connection, the owner said the problem occurred because of heavy winds which was understandable but they could have let me know at least on the day of arrival so that i could have arranged for alternative options. The kitchen was smelling horrible and the smell lasted for all the 3 days we stayed. I did not enjoy my stay at the property.

Fantastic area and location for walking and hiking and great accommodation. Skye has so much to offer for outdoor activities and photography and willie Mcleods cottage offers all of the home comforts.

Spacious and solitaire

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is situated in a very remote area of the island, very peaceful and quiet, only sometimes some cows that moo. In the cottage you will find spacious bedrooms with comfortable beds. The living and dining room are also very spacious and offer sufficient space for a party of five. The kitchen is fully equipped including washing machine annex dryer and a dishwasher. The only negative aspect of the cottage are the sofa's. However, we had the same experience with the sofa also at other cottages.

But for a quiet holiday at a beautiful part of the island, book this cottage, leave telephone and computers at home, and RELAX.
