Self-Catering House for 7, Outstanding Views, Perfect For Family Holidays!
My family has been coming to the Isle of Skye for many years. We are very fond of this beautiful and picturesque area. Although we do let the property out, we also come here ourselves from time to time.
Owner purchased this House in 2013
Why Owner chose Isle of Skye
This house is about 2 miles from the centre of Portree, conveniently situated for shopping, yet far enough away to feel secluded.
What makes this House unique
We have tried hard to make this a family house. It is comfortable and well appointed, and we hope that others will enjoy it as we do.

Great Place to Stay
We really enjoyed our stay. The house was comfortable and clean, and the neighborhood was quiet. The sunroom was our favorite place in the house. We found everything was as advertised, the instructions we received were very clear, and we had no problems while we were there. Overall a very positive experience and I would recommend the home as a great place to stay while you are on Skye.
Amazing base to explore the beautiful Isle of Skye
The whole process from first interest to a lovely message after checking out was a breeze. Easy and pleasant service to use. On arrival we were greeted by the lovely housekeeper who showed us around the house and checked we had everything we needed for our stay, we felt very relaxed and welcomed at Balmacara cottage.
Our stay was brilliant we explored the island and after long days out we looked forward to returning to the cottage that felt very homely.
All the beds were very comfy and we all slept like babies the whole trip (which makes all the difference when you are away from home)
The kitchen had everything and anything you could possibly need to cook great meals, we cook every night we were there, there is a large co-op store near by that stocks everything you might need. The town of Portree is only a couple of minutes away.
Overall we absolutely adored Balmacara cottage and would recommend it to anyone looking for a clean, inviting, home away from home whilst visiting Skye.
Beautiful house in immaculate condition is a great location with a fantastic yard and view. Easy access to Portree with its restaurants and charm. Our daughters made friends with the cows and sheep nearby. Fiona, the property manager, was friendly and helpful and always available. We will be back!
Very comfortable property.
Plenty of room
Lovely nest to rest.
Six of us stayed for three nights in June. We explored and hiked Skye all day and would retreat back to this cozy and lovely cottage every evening. The owner was a great communicator and we were greeted by the nicest caretaker.
Our favorite room was the conservatory where we would share our photos in the evening and sip coffee in the morning.
The kitchen was fully functional and we cooked dinner there all three nights. Mainly because we could not get a booking in Portree. No bother. It was more relaxing to sit in the conservatory and eat with that amazing view (we had a full rainbow one night!)
The cottage was clean and very well kept. The beds were very comfortable. I recommend this place 100% if you are going to enjoy Skye.
Amazing views inside and out!
Beautiful property with views over Portree. There was nothing we needed. Beautiful large home with every amenity. Great place to explore Isle of Skye. Book your dinner reservations early because it’s a crazy race for a dinner place!
