Lovely tucked away home
Wide expansive windows overlooking the Sound of Sleat in a quiet neighborhood. Freshly painted and well equipped, the home was restful and lovely.
Thank you so much for reviewing Eravue. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay on the magical Island of Skye
Fantastic views from patio and from every room, especially the lounge
Very nicely furnished and well equipped with lots of thoughtful details and amazing views, one of the nicest places we have stayed. Spotlessly clean! We appreciated the care that has gone into making this such a great place to stay, thank you.
Breathtakingly beautiful home with amazing views
Eravue exceeds ANY expectations that you may have for a property in Skye. The outlook from the deck, bedrooms and lounge room is breath taking. The property has everything that you need to stay comfortably and in luxury, from a fully equipped kitchen to cook a meal to binoculars to look at the stunning wildlife!
The property is in immaculate condition. We travelled over 2 days from Australia to come here and it was without a doubt the best decision we made.....and we hope to do again very soon. Our stay in Skye is full of memories that we cherish dearly such as visiting Dunvegan, Armidale and walking to the local pub.
Luxurious from home, stunning view across the loch
Great cottage! Highlights as follows:
- very light, well equipped, homely cottage. This felt like a place to live rather than a rental cottage: board games, DVDs, CDs & books aplenty. Lots of food in the larder and no end of utensils and gadgets to cook with
- no photo can do justice to the view across and down the loch. When the setting sun is shining on the hills across the water, the colours change by the minute
- the location is very quiet indeed being a little off the tourist trail but still only 20 mins to Broadford
- There are great beaches in Sleat, both at Ord where you can watch the sun set over the cuillins and at Point of Sleat, which has white sand and clear blue water (3km walk from Aird, but well worth it). We watched a seal swimming about 50m off the beach for a good 20 minutes
All in all, a fantastic base for our first trip to Skye.
Thanks so much for spending time to review your stay - we really appreciate it. We are lucky to have owned Eravue for 16 years and we are delighted that it feels like a welcoming home. Its location makes it perfect for exploring the Skye and the mainland and as you say - if you don't want to go out - the view from the lounge is ever captivating!
We fell in love with Eravue on our first visit in 2015. We've returned twice since. For our family unit of four the property itself, its location on Skye and Skye itself offer the perfect getaway break.
Self catering being referred to as a home from home is a cliche that is almost universally inappropriately used. We've stayed at many self-catering properties and even the most expensive with all mod-cons and amazing views leave us feeling hollow. Only Eravue provides a genuine sense that you have entered someone's loved and cared-for home. It's hard to distill exactly what makes it different but the decor and ambience feels genuine and homely and the fact that the store cupboard has a range of staple goods certainly contribute.
On the first morning you could wake up at dawn to watch the sun rise over the Sound of Sleat, spend the day watching the light change across the water, repeat seven days and have spent a wonderful week. The fact that you just so happen to have the most glorious island on your doorstep to explore means you really ought to force yourself to get out and about a bit.
If you want to put your hectic world on pause for a week or two, to relax, breathe, feel human and uplifted, this is the place.
Activities, wildlife, food & drink and art
For lovers of the outdoors: Skye has it all and always with a view! The Cullins, Old Man of Storr, Quirang for those who like big hills. The location is also a perfect base to go further afield to the Outer Hebrides or back onto the mainland to visit the picture postcard village of Plockton.
For food & drink lovers: The local hotel/pub in Eilean Iarmain (15 minutes walk away) also provides Gaelic Whisky tasting. The only Isle of Skye distillery – Talisker – is a great trip out. Lady Claire Macdonald’s Kinloch Lodge with its Michelin star restaurant just 10 minutes drive away.
For lovers of art: Eravue is perfectly located to take in a number of artist studios and is close to the centre for Gaelic music and arts at Sabhal Mór Ostaig. There are a number of local artist studios and a gallery at the local hotel which hosts an annual exhibition programme.
Golf: 9 Hole at Sconser open to the public, magnificent views over to the Isle of Raasay.
