We arrived late at night and were very pleased to find cottage very warm and cosy inside. Pictures don't do justice to this place, it has plenty of space and really well equipped kitchen. It's a shame the weather was quite vile throughout the trip and we didn't get a chance to enjoy the lovely garden. Great location, 10 min walking distance to amazing Oyster Shed and about 15 to the Old Inn if not keen on cooking or 20 min drive to Portree for something more special. This place is a true gem and I understand the parking situation (mentioned in few reviews) will be resolved shortly however I must say we had no problem parking opposite the house and when joined by our friends for a few days we managed to park 2 cars easily outside. Already thinking about next trip to Isle of Skye in late spring and if decided wouldn't even bother looking anywhere else. Most definitely will be coming back here. If you are after space, privacy and a home away from home this is the place.

We were really lucky with the weather this week and had a few clear blue sky days which was great for sightseeing our favourite sights on skye (Neist point at sunset, old man of storr and the quiraing to name a few). We also had a couple of clear nights which were amazing as it's a great location for star gazing. The backrest met our high standards yet again and we were also pleased the DVD collection had been added to. We would recommend the backrest to everyone.

Excellent directions, we drove 11hrs with 2 children and a puppy and we found the cottage straight away from the instructions given prior to our arrival. Upon arrival the cottage was immaculate and we even had a bottle of wine waiting for us which was a nice touch after a long drive. The cottage was so well equipped, we couldn't have asked for anymore. The surroundings are perfect and it is so peaceful we just wish we could have stayed longer! We have a 2yr old and 6 yr old that are used to ipads but being in the middle of nowhere with no Internet signal they had no choice but to go for long walks and play board games and they loved it! We hope to return soon but for a bit longer than 3 nights. Thank you for having us. Emma, Stephen, Freddie, Rosa and Ralf xxx
