The location is excellent - As usual the house on arrival is always clean and tidy. The top floor bathroom must have one of the finest bathroom views on the whole of Skye ! The owners Cathy and Pat are only too pleased to help with any information you may require.
Would I recommend the house to a friend, well Yes and No - why No because I do not want anybody else to know about this gem.
A lovely quiet spot to spend the festive season. We've been coming to Skye for years and this our favourite place and favourite holiday home. Everything is clean, well cared for and well equipped. Despite raging gales at this time of year, it is warm and comfortable. Looking forward to coming back in the summer of 17.
We stayed at this charming, cosy house with our daughter for a summer break. It's location is exceptional, close to the oldest Inn on Skye (Stein Inn), and very close to a good restaurant. It's is also a short distance from the shore, with superb views.
The house was well-appointed, with every conceivable practical need covered, and the owners were friendly and kind. The house itself was clean and comfortable.
The shop and gallery on the ground floor were interesting, with excellent local art and crafts.
We enjoyed our week very much, and hope to go back again.
The Captain's House is on the waterfront, at the end of the road, in a small settlement planned in the eighteenth century as a centre for the fishing industry. On the ground floor is a gallery selling good quality work by local artists, the first floor and attics now comprise a well maintained and well furnished apartment. Big bedrooms, a double and a twin, kitchen and dining area, sitting room with open fire, two bathrooms. Magnificent views over the loch and the headlands to the far islands and big skies, big sunsets. A few yards away are a family friendly pub and a well reputed restaurant (but the latter opened for the season only as I was leaving). The sea is even closer, at the end of the garden, and even in February the hardy can swim. The owners live nearby and are very helpful. Shortbread and fine china for your arrival.
We have stayed at the Captains House almost every year since 1990. We love the setting, waking up looking out to the beautiful view ,with the most amazing sunsets . The house is warm and cosy with storage heaters and a inviting coal fire . The house is well equipped, very clean ,the beds are always crisp and clean and very comfortable. The owners Pat and Cathy are always welcoming and on occasion have lit a fire for our arrival .There is always lots of hot water and plenty of coal and logs for the fire . All of this is why we return time and time again and recommend it regularly to family and friends as an ideal base to see Skye .
