An outstanding place to stay in which to explore Skye and its wildlife. The cottage was peacefully located on the end of a sea loch. It had a lovely garden which led down to the loch and really caught the sun. The cottage itself was perfect for us. A great double bedroom and smaller one if needed, a superb kitchen which was well equipped by a very thoughtful owner. We didn't need for anything. It was clean, spacious and comfortable. The bed was amazing. The conservatory gave terrific wild life viewing, although a little warm. The steps were being repaired at the front of the porch and with the doors open it will be truly amazing. We saw seals most days and a mother and baby otter at about 11.00 one morning when we spent an hour watching them fish and play from the conservatory. There were many other regulars, herons, tufties, pochards etc. Even sheep visited us from the shore one morning.
There were midges at night on the shore, but they didn't get into the cottage and didn't bite when we used insect repellent.

The driveway is a little tricky to negotiate but there is a convenient place to turn round very close by and with two of us there wasn't any problem getting the car out.

The cottage is set in a very secluded setting so you feel totally unoverlooked, but there were other cottages close by so didn't feel cut off. Broadford with its supermarket, gas station and bay were very close and it was a really useful base from which to explore Skye in all directions.

I would thoroughly recommend this holiday rental.

“A real delight”

A well appointed, well equipped and beautifully located cottage on a beautiful island. A real home from home. Laimhrig is close to the shops of Broadford, yet feels completely remote with the main view overlooking the Loch and the Red Cuillin.
We were blessed with fantastic weather - to the point that the conservatory was too warm to sit in at times, but this is in no way a complaint! The evening views of the sun setting behind Glamaig are just stunning, as were the evening visits by the local seal.
It's hard to find a single fault with the cottage and the phone calls from Gordon, the owner, on arrival and pre-departure were a very nice touch. Really comfy bed too!
Highly recommended.

Beautiful location, easy to find and close enough to Portree. Broadford is 10 mins away and able to cater to your shopping needs. Cottage is very well equipped, roomy, spotlessly clean and the views are awesome. Would heartily recommend this to anyone

After a 9 hour drive you can only hope your choice of accomodation lives up to the advert and when we arrived we were blown away! It is better than the adverts!

Fabulous views from the conservatory lounging about in the comfortable chairs watching the changing skies.

Amazing living area and kitchen, and more importantly, the most comfy bed!
