Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights in the cottage and really enjoyed our stay. It was very clean and comfortable. Very close to the beautiful Quiraing hill walk. We would definitely stay there again if we go back.

Fantastic

We stayed at Rosehip Cottage for 4 nights and it was perfect for us. It is so Close to the old man of storr that you can get an early start there. The view from the Cottage is amazing and there was more then enough space for us.

Perfect holiday home on Skye

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was immaculate and had all we needed for our stay and more. Ideal location for drives and walks in the northern part of Skye. A car/bike is probably required to explore all parts of the island and for big shops. Sea, countryside and mountains are all visible from the cottage and garden if you want to just stay in for the day. A perfect holiday home in a spectacular part of the country.

Sunny May holiday on Skye

  • 5 of 5

Our holiday on Skye could not have been bettered with excellent, comfortable, fully equipped accommodation in a lovely quiet setting in the north of the Trotternish Peninsular. Four days were spent touring round the lovely island in glorious sunny weather, eating and drinking some wonderful local produce. We will return again for a longer stay to investigate the parts we missed.

We Fell In Love....

  • 5 of 5

We had booked a three night stay at Rosehip Cottage, and although we knew some of the island, we weren't familiar with this area, or the cottage. It was love at first sight when we saw it advertised, and true long lasting love when we arrived!! The cottage is adorable, spick and span, soo soo clean, and just absolutely delightful. Immediately we starting day dreaming about living there! We will definitely go back to Rosehip cottage soon and will take the family with us. I cannot believe how lucky we got in finding this little gem.
