It was a dream location in the amazing Highlands scenery. The cottage was clean and tidy with everything you could ask working perfectly. The owner provided loads of instructions to enjoy the house, the place and the neighborhood, safety links and even the directory of restaurants and pubs nearby. An entire shelf of books and guides, maps dedicated to Scotland with particular attention to Skye Island and nearby places was available in the house. Appliances were perfect, so was internet connection and TV. You could enjoy staying by the beautiful brook within the property (!) or walking to nearby viewpoint. Skye was within a 20 minutes car trip. So is Plockton. My only regret was the stay too short.
Mooi huis, rustig gelegen, en goeie uitvalbasis voor NW Schotland.
Sehr schönes, ruhig gelegenes Haus in reizvoller Umgebung.
Das Haus ist komfortabel eingerichtet und liegt auf einem großem Grundstück mit einem kleinen Wasserfall an einer sehr wenig befahrenen Straße. Vom Haus und Garten hat man einen wunderbaren Ausblick. In der Nähe sind sehr schöne Wanderungen und Ausflüge möglich (Sky, Eilean Donan Castle, Balmacara, Plockton und vieles mehr).
Einziges Manko: An dem Haus fließt unmittelbar ein kleiner Wasserfall vorbei, weshalb abends Midges anzutreffen sind. Da die Schlafzimmer oben liegen und sich bei sehr warmen Wetter aufheizen, sollte man über Tag lüften.
