Lovely lonely cottage at Loch Greshornish with beautiful walks around the area
The Cottage is very lovely and the scenery around it is very beautiful. The location is great and you can explore the area around Dunvegan, Waternish and Greshornish very easy.
Portree for shopping isn't that far away - easy drive down.
The contact for booking was excellent.
Sadly we can't give 5 stars. The reasons why in short form:
- As we arrived the washing machine was running with linen from the guests before.
- The fridge is extremly to small for a house for 5 guests. If you have small children you can't store things for more than 2 days.
- The pots and pans are extremly too small and in very bad conditons. We love to cook and so it wasn't that easy to manage it.
- The floor in the kitchen also saw better days.
- We travelled with our dogs and we prefer to hoover every day. Sadly there only were a vacuum cleaner without everything. A broom for the kitchen was missing too.
But last but not least. The scenery is beautiful and we would come back. Maybe it's possible to manage some things better.
Loved Florin cottage and all its "true" island atmosphere.
We arrived at Florin Cottage after midnight and awoke to the most beautiful view! The cottage was spacious and comfortable for two couples and a baby. The fireplace was amazing and made us feel so cozy. We expected the remote locale and one lane road leading in, but all of our day trips were easily reachable and Florin felt like coming home! There were a few kitchen amenities lacking such as a coffee maker..only a pod machine, and a limited supply of pots and pans...we love cooking in different countries, but we didn't suffer! The owners were lovely gracious people who made us feel very welcome.
What a wonderful place to stay, quiet and relaxing. Cannot wait to book again for our next visit.
