My husband and myself had the most wonderful stay at Eravue. The views from the house are outstanding. It is the perfect place to chillout and relax. It really is hard to find a better location. The place is immaculate and well equiped with everything you need to make you comfortable. We will definately be coming back.
It was my first time up to Skye with my partner who had been before, so I was really looking forward to it. On arrive to the house I was stunned my the view from the decking. On entering the house it was very clean and really nicely decorated to feel homely and has excellent facilites if the weather stops you from seeing the island. In the 5 full days at the house we managed to see Neist Point, the Fairy poles, a sunset over Elgol, the Old Man of Storr and a few other sites too! It was incredible and I'd happily go back to Eravue, it was amazing.
My husband and I spent 2 weeks at Eravue and the longer we were there, the more we loved it. This is not an impersonal home decorated for the tourist but the home of people who love Skye and want you to enjoy it as much as they must. We had awful weather and having a home with a magnificent view was a delight. Even in the rain you could hear all sorts of bird song. The beds were extremely comfortable and the kitchen was so well thought out, all I needed to do was be logical and everything was there. Not that we had dinners in. We could have but there are 4 Country House Hotels in the area serving excellent food including a great Pub close to the house. The owners have binoculars for your use and enough books and maps of the Island to stay for a month of driving around and hiking. We looked at a lot of rentals and could not have picked a more ideal spot for our vacation.
Lovely well equipped cottage, wonderful views from the huge picture windows. Great location to explore the island from. We found ourselves there on a very wet week so the cottage became more important than it normally would be for us in terms of drying out clothes and boots!!! It passed with flying colours!!!!. Loved the local pub and easy to find walks. As for the otters, forget seeing them you've got more chance of seeing the Loch Ness monster.
The photos of Eravue on the on-line brochure made the croft and its surroundings look amazing. It was therefore very pleasing to arrive and find the house and its views were even more inpressive!
We all had a fantastic time. The sitting room, decking and views meant you could enjoy the beauty of Skye even when you were relaxing with a gin and tonic in the evening or enjoying breakfast on the decking. Saw lots of wildlife with a deer and a stag just beyond the garden fence, an otter in the garden!, and amazing birds and birdsong.
The house was really nicely laid out with all modern conveniences and lots of extras. No complaints at all.
I would recommend Eravue to anyone and will certainly stay there in the future whenever we return to Skye.
