Fantastic location, great base to explore the area
I stayed here with my two teenage children and dog for a week. We all loved it, plenty of space in the house, lovely bedrooms, and living areas. Keith explained a few idiosyncratic things upon arrival,which was very useful. My son spent most of his time in the conservatory on his PS4 (it was a very rainy week! ) apparently the wifi is a bit laggy on an evening! We had a peaceful week, when the clouds cleared the views were amazing. Pub food in carbost was fantastic, the bay at fiskavaig was our best find of the week, beautifully clear water, the kids were kayaking on it, it was so calm.
All in all, a great place to stay and central to pretty much all of skye. I'd return tomorrow. ..if it wasn't a 10 hour drive from home! ! Fantastic holiday, thank you very much.
Spacious and ideally situated
Property was clean and spacious, although there is some room for upgrades such as garden furniture would be nice and removal of waste from past projects which still resides in the garden
Perfect location for the Cullin.
Overlooking a sea loch a short distance uphill from Carbost this is an ideal spot to explore the Cullin and beyond. There are 3 spacious berooms, a living room with woodburner, a decent kitchen and conservatory, more than enough space for us and all clean and tidy with a touch of character. We spent the days walking returning in the evening to enjoy dinner and sleep. The Old Inn Carbost is a very welcome place to quench a thirst with an ale or two and serves meals. Overall I would recommend it.
Property was fab and super spacious
The property was really nice. Unfortunately they building work next door lead to the parking being a little difficult but it did not spoil our stay. The house was warm and comfortable with a huge garden for our doggy. Great location with the Old Inn and fabulous pier within walking distance thank you so much we had a wonderful week and to top it off the sun was out all but 1 day which was an unexpected surprise
Thank you xx
Great bungalow with everything you need.
Very comfortable loved the conservatory.
Loved our time here.
Skye is renowned for its climbing and walking and, within close proximity of the Cuillin mountains and McLeod's Tables, Nyumbani is ideally located for this. For those who prefer less energetic exercise there are lovely walks direct from the property, with every chance of encountering a resident otter or seal in the bay as well as the occasional rare sea eagle which are known to nest along this coastline. There are numerous places of interest within easy reach. Talisker Distillery is situated just along the road, and Dunvegan Castle, seat of the Clan MacLeod since the 13th century and the oldest inhabited castle in Scotland is just a short drive away.
The pretty harbour town of Portree is about 20 minutes drive away. Set around its natural harbour, with spectacular hills and mountains beyond, Portree is a quintessentially picturesque fishing village. Brightly painted cottages cluster round the active harbour where some of the finest fish restaurants can be found. along with an excellent selection of local shops, pubs and other restaurants as well as a superb leisure centre with 25 metre swimming pool, sauna, steam room and table tennis, all available to visitors.
