About Georgina McNaught
We are renting my grandfather's old cottage on Skye where we have enjoyed family holidays for many years.
Georgina McNaught purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Georgina McNaught chose Isle of Skye
Skye is beautiful and peaceful. This cottage used to belong to my grandfather and we came here for many many wonderful holidays.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage is a perfect base for exploring Skye. It's peaceful and backs onto the hillside, but it's only ten minutes from Portree, where there are shops, restaurants and a lovely harbour. We have recently put in a new kitchen with new appliances, utility room with washer and drier, there is a powerful shower, and also a log burning stove for cosy evenings in by the fire. There is a separate dining room for family meals and planning the next day's adventures with the help of our maps and guide books. Newly installed central heating system 2014. There is a lovely mature enclosed garden, half an acre, perfect for relaxing in and taking in the views and for kids to play. Whether you like walking, mountaineering or just relaxing in peace, Skye is a wonderful place to take a break.

Perfect Getaway in Skye
Georgina’s place was perfect. Great house on a beautiful property with a gorgeous garden. Clean, quaint, country living with everything we needed. Plenty of room for 5. Georgina was very helpful and responsive. Would definitely stay again!
Lil pink house
Nice little cottage. It was a great central location to explore Skye. We only had a couple days so not too much exploring, but was perfect place to head up north to Uig and around to Kilt Rock back to Portree.
Very comfortable, only tiny issue was the broken light in the front room, but lovely to come home to a warm home after a wet day in the hills.
Great place close to Portree
This cottage was wonderful. Plenty of space, comfy beds for sleeping. Living room was relaxing and inviting for a night of reading or watching a movie. If you wanted to prepare a meal the kitchen was great. A nice bonus for us was a washer and dryer for our midpoint in traveling. All questions are answered quickly, lots of information was available in a welcome package. Would definitely stay here again.
Cozy, in a perfect location, with all the amenities.
We really enjoyed staying at the Pink House in Borve. It was nice and cozy, perfect for our stay. We liked the location, just north of Portree, and so, close to stores and restaurants, yet near the fields with cows and sheep. One morning, after rain, we walked outside to the sweet smell of wet sheep. What an authentic Skye experience! The house had all the amenities that we needed: a well-equipped kitchen, a washer and a dryer, and a TV with a DVD player. All the appliances and the heaters had clear instructions and were easy to operate. With three bedroom, both of our kids could have their own bedroom, which alleviated territorial squabbles. As a nice gesture, the owner left a bottle of red wine for us (which was promptly and gratefully consumed). Next time we visit Skye, we will definitely consider staying at the Pink House. The only thing I would suggest is that the owner stock the kitchen with the essentials like salt, pepper, tea, and paper towels, so that guests do not have to buy everything. But, this is a really minor thing. All in all, a lovely stay!
Comfortable and complete cottage on good location
We had a very pleasant stay in Georgina's cottage. The house is very complete and has a spacious and well equipped kitchen and bathroom.
Also the garden is rather big, with a lot of lovely flowers and plants and provides more then enough privacy. The house feels more like a home then a holiday-cottage. The location on the isle of Skye is very central. Most of the main-attraction are within an hour driving. We found Skye more touristic then expected but it is very beautiful still. We were there for four nights but we could have spend a week easily. We would definitely recommend Georgina's cottage!
