Guestbook comments from the manager

The cottage is even lovelier than we anticipated - so tastefully decorated and the pitched ceilings and expansive views give space for the soul to breath!

We've had a great week. Loved the house and appreciated all the special touches. The view from the living area was mesmerising. Saw lots of the island but the otters and seals at Armadale were special. Two pods of dolphins entertained us for over an hour one morning over breakfast......brilliant.

Enjoyed the beautiful views from the cottage and saw dolphins. Also saw lots of seals, walking along the shore just below the cottage. Driving around Skye we came to the conclusion that we had chosen the very best cottage! It s situation is very handy to get to all the different places.

Beautiful, cozy cottage with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was beautiful, the view amazing, and the location was great for exploring the Isle of Skye as well as driving up to Loch Ness and area. The cottage was very homey, with all the amenities.

Every comfort, and a spectacular view

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to the property. Once again we appreciated the personal touches - welcome-basket of groceries, locally made toiletries in the bathroom, flowers in the living area - and enjoyed the comfort of the house. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you could reasonably need if you want to cook, as well as a microwave if you don't. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable with plenty of cupboards. And the view from the kitchen and living area is fantastic - even on cloudy days it's lovely just to sit and look out. It's a good location for visiting the southern end of Skye, handy for local shops at Broadford (about 10 minutes away). I can't think of anything that would improve it. We hope to go back for a third year.
