“Spectacular”
Reviewed 30 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My wife and I stayed at Calath two years ago and we were eager to return. Everything about the house is superb, starting with the location overlooking a Loch and with a huge picture window looking directly at the Black Cullins. It's one of the best views I've ever seen from a hotel or vacation rental. Alan is the owner and he's extremely responsive to questions; he's a pleasure to deal with. The house itself is modern, as you can see from the photos. It's also very comfortable. The kitchen is terrific so we cooked about half of our dinners there and had the rest at the Old Inn nearby. There's also a washer and drying room which are very handy. Treat yourselves and stay at Calath.

“Great house, amazing location.”

We rented this house as a base for a walking trip. The website looked good but the house is even better. We arrived late due to a flight delay and got to the house in the dark. However the house was warm, clean and ready to go with fresh towels etc. laid out for us. The views from the house are breath-taking. The kitchen is well appointed and we were able to cook some good meals.

We stocked up with food before we left Inverness but there is a small shop in Carbost for basic provisions. The pub is excellent with a big fire going. They do great locally sourced food. They also sell a local beer brewed only five miles away called 'Pinnacle' that is superb.

If you enjoy stunning views, peace and quiet, and completely getting away from the usual stresses of life then get yourself to Calath. It will do you the world of good.

It is about two and a half hours drive from Inverness airport but one of the nicest drives I've ever done. Very fast roads with great views all the way.

“The most beautiful place I've ever stayed”
Reviewed 21 January 2015 for a stay in February 2014

We stayed here a few years ago (before I joined Trip Advisor) and it was an absolutely amazing experience. This is the most beautiful self-catering place I've ever stayed: views of the Cuillin from the living room, the loch right outside and a stunning, clean and modern interior. I honestly can't fault it. We had a brilliant stay and it was worth every penny. Check out the connoisseurs tour at Talisker too...although you will need to walk/stumble back!

Had a fantastic time in Calath! The house is beautifully presented with plenty of room for the seven people who attended. The views of the mountains and the loch are splendid!!! Skye itself is a magical place... Thoroughly recommend going there!!!
