We had a great family summer holiday - the cottage is in a great location and has wonderful views. It has everything one needs - very comfortable, clean and warm. Everything has been thought of from hot water bottles to games and DVDs for those misty isle afternoons. We really enjoyed using the bread maker and having lovely family dinners together. A lovely place to stay to explore the island.
We loved the waternish peninsula it’s so quiet and peaceful a real chance to relax and enjoy beautiful surroundings. The cottage was spacious and well equipped, we really enjoyed making bread everyday with the breadmaker ! We had a wonderful stay and can’t wait to go back.
We had a great week staying at Burnside. It is a lovely cottage in a magical setting with amazing views, well laid out and beautifully equipped. We couldn't have asked for better facilities or a better home-from-home. Thank you.
Sadly we only had 3 nights in this delightful cottage full of character! It was very well equipped and had been decorated and modernised to a high standard. The area was beautiful, there was plenty to do and see and the weather was amazing! What more do you want? We will be back!!
I thought Id written this review months ago....Oh well. My wife and I came to Burnside Cottage in December, 2017, and stayed until Jan 2nd. Sarah was extremely helpful with all of my questions, her response time was very quick. It was a long snowy drive from Edinburgh to Isle Of Skye, but we finally got to Portree to stock up. From there, the cottage is a short drive, about 30 minutes or so. Again, the instructions Sarah gave us made it very easy to find. Driving through the village, we were feeling pretty excited, as the scenery is amazing. Stein is a 5 minute slow drive from the cottage, and has a nice Inn, as well as a Michelin stared restaurant, Loch Bay. We went straight to the cottage, and were blown away by the Ocean views, the cleanliness of the cottage, the thoughtful decor....just everything. The fireplace kept us plenty warm and toasty, so we didn't use the heating system very much, as it is also extremely efficient. We will definitely be planning to stay here again, as it is perfectly cozy in the cooler months, our favorite times to spend on Skye.
We walked to Stein a few times, it is about a 40 minute walk or so, very easy though, and very enjoyable.
