It is a cottage that I would recommend any person to stay in, I cannot find the words to describe everything it's best you experience it yourself. The care and attention that Diane has paid to make our stay unforgettable is second to none. Thank you for the most wonderful relaxing holiday and to have shared your garden with two mountain hares as well as the various species of birds. Perfection.
What a romantic setting. We could not imagine a better place to go for our honeymoon. Diane's cottage sits on top of the hill overlooking the beautiful ocean and the green virgin pastureland. Tir nan og cottage is a great start for loads of gorgeous walks. Diane kindly kept a guide in her library to recommend the best ones. The hamlet Stein with its buzzing pub and excellent seafood restaurant is also at walking distance. There are also loads of local craftmakers nearby worth a visit. The cottage has all the comfort you can ever dream of, the most comfortable bed, a beautiful kitchen with very wide windows overlooking the bay and a working log burner fireplace in the living room! The perfect feature to enjoy these incredible bright scottish nights. Diane is also an excellent host and has been communicating to us very regularly on the phone or per email to give us all the info we needed and useful tips to enjoy our stay. We can not recommend enough this place.
As we say in french, "ce n'est qu'un au revoir", Isle of Skye and Tir nan og we will see you soon.

My husband and I recently stayed at Tir Nan Og with our 10 month old baby, and for two nights, my brother in law and his wife. The cottage was very easy to find, following Diane's directions, and everything was exactly as promised in the pre-arrival information.
The master bedroom was very comfortable, with a lovely big bed and gorgeous sheepskin rugs. High quality sheets and towels throughout. The kitchen was exceptionally well-equipped and the living room cosy and comfortable.
The views from the living room, kitchen and retreat/second bedroom were spectacular and we were lucky enough to enjoy a series of breathtaking sunsets from the comfort and warmth of the kitchen.
As mentioned, we were four adults for the first two nights - things were cosy! The kitchen does not allow for four adults to move around very easily and there was nowhere for the four of us to sit together to enjoy a meal or a drink - but that did not prevent us from enjoying the two nights. The second bedroom is a good size and has a great en suite with jacuzzi bath tub (which the 10 month old thought superb!), however, the bed is a little on the small side (we would caution against two adults sharing).
Diane is a thoughtful, well organised and efficient host - despite being so far away. She ensures guests are well prepared well in advance of their trip, and her recommendations for foodie destinations and places to visit are to be trusted.
We spent a wonderful week at Tir nan Ogh in July, the cottage was magnificent,affording wonderful coastal views , and having all the facilities you could wish for. The location was quiet, which was what we were looking for, but only a couple of minutes from the nearby village of Stein.
Diannes professionalism shone through when making the arrangements with her from the other side of the world!, there were no hassles or problems whatsoever. We'd certainly recommend Tir nan Ogh to anyone looking at spending some tome exploring the Isle of Skye.
Our time at Tir Nan Og was so much more than we could have hoped for. Diane's cottage is beautiful, warm, welcoming and in the most magnificent location overlooking Loch Bay to Dunvegan Head. The landscape is rugged and magnificent and this delightful little cottage with its huge windows overlooking the bay, is a perfect base for relaxing in and exploring from. We had the privilege of meeting Diane while we were there, and having met her, we could see why Tir Nan Og radiates with light and happiness. She has created a magical place. We will return. Thank you Diane - go in health and come back in health. Jo and Lorenc
