The lovely view was breathtaking in all weather. We all stood by the windows. We arrived late because of flooded train tracks and it immediately felt like home. Spacious and yet cozy. The kitchen is huge and well equipped. I could write a book from here. It is quiet and inspirational. You will need a car to get around. However the walk down the hill to town is short and the restaurant there has fabulous food if you aren't of a mind to cook.Each of our adult children had their own room. The sheets on the perfect beds were amazing. I hope we can return.
....that we can be there again...! :-)
A wonderful house and a giant view over the Loch and the Black Cuillins. The house is very comfortable and has not a not "cheap" interior as in other apartments or houses. It is a bit badly soundproofed . But everything has his place and right to be there .
We missed a bit enough cutlery to use the dishwasher economic. But this was not a big issue as we cleaned it by hand.
We will hopefully come back again. The week in the house was great and we enjoyed Carbost as a " basecamp" to explore Skye . To late discovered was the "Oyster Shed" , a take away for Lobsters and Oysters just some 100m away from the house.
Thanks for this nice positive experience after having had others in U.K. earlier.
Tigh Fraoich is excellent in every respect. The property is immaculate, comfortable & well-equipped (the superlatives in earlier reviews are well deserved); and the location is ideal for walking or touring or simply sitting still and watching the wind ruffle the loch below. It is perfectly tranquil. In short, a joy.
Our only regret is that we didn’t have a chance to get to know the owner Dorothy, whose inspiration lies behind this and some other similarly well appointed cottages in this part of Skye. Next time, we hope!
Visitors would be well advised to stock up at the supermarket in Broadford on arriving on the island, since the village shop in Carbost has limited supplies. Cooking at home is a delight, in the sleek new kitchen of Tigh Fraoich.
This property is the most beautiful place to stay, both inside and out. The views are breathtaking, especially from the dining and living rooms. The house is beautifully furnished, all to a very high standard, and so clean! Dorothy was quick to respond with any issues or questions. We would most definitely come back and will recommend to anyone we know who is considering a visit to Skye!
Just returned from the most relaxing holiday we've ever had. The cottage itself is stunning,beautifully & tastefully furnished to a luxury standard.There is nothing that has not been provided. The uninterrupted views of the loch are spectacular!! The local inn just down the hill has an amazing welcoming atmosphere. Wish we could of stayed longer really didn't want to leave x 5 stars
