An Absolute Gem!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over Christmas and the owner made us feel so welcome with a bottle of prosecco, biscuits and a lovely little Christmas tree in the corner – first time we’ve ever been away for Christmas and this made it a little more special. Although the cottage was cold at first (it was late December!) again, being very thoughtful the owner had added an electric blanket to the downstairs bed (which was incredibly comfortable.) The cottage has everything you would need and is tastefully decorated; we felt really at home so much so that we have booked for another week in August! It is also really nicely located, handy for Portree but not right on the middle of it, lovely views when sitting at table in kitchen. We holiday a lot in self catering places and this is the first one we have booked again before we've even left it! Overall we couldn’t recommend it highly enough!

Lovely house with a perfect location for seeing all that Skye has to offer. The house was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. Added extras were the views, a friendly local cat and regular Eagles flying by :)

Cozy, well-situated holiday house.

Lovely house - even better than it looks in the pictures. Perfectly warm and comfortable. Fantastic, huge bed in the master bedroom! It's not apparent from the photos, but there is a good TV in the living room too.

Nice and comfortable Croft House

We had an enjoyable stay in Isle of Skye. The house is clean, comfortable and well equipped. It is centrally located on the island, so we did not waste time traveling to places.
