Beautiful peaceful house
On arriving at this property we were immediately greeted with a sense of peace and relaxation. Lorraine had written us a lovely welcoming letter and baked us some delicious short bread which we enjoyed with our first cup of tea! The house is cosily furnished and we were very comfortable throughout our stay. Memorable experiences include coming face-to-face with a pack of local sheepdogs on the walk home, and watching the exploits of the many bunnies in the surrounding fields. A great base for exploring the island, especially if you value peace and quiet at the end of the day! And if you are coming by public transport, the bus stop is just a short walk down the road :)!
Solitude, serenity and fantastic views!
We had a wonderful four day stay. This place is really the best of all worlds on the Isle of Skye. You have a beautiful, quiet place on the northernmost part of the island yet you are only 10-20 minutes from most of the best hikes on the island. My son and I did a 45 minute hike up through the pasture land behind the house and had an incredible view looking towards the Outer Hebrides. You can literally do the Rubha Hunnish bike from the house. Do be aware that the house does NOT have a freezer. We loaded up with several days worth of groceries and had to eat or throw away all our frozen food the first night. All in all a fantastic place that I would highly recommend!!
We're delighted you had a great stay, and took full advantage of the cottage's position to engage in some marvellous walking.
The website does make it clear that there is no freezer. And as you stayed just 3 nights (as do many of our guests) the need for a freezer must have been limited. Had you asked we would have provided access to our own.
Thank you for such a glowing review.
Lovely place to stay!
