“The best cottage in Scotland.... maybe even the world.”

We arrived on a cold night to a cosy and warm atmosphere.The Christmas decorations and the gifts that were left for us were unexpected.
Everything you need is in the cottage.The thought and planning that has went into the cottage was easy to see.
We stayed five nights and our only regret was not booking it for longer.
Great cottage, great location. Ideal if you want to escape from life.

“A little bit of heaven”

Couldn't think of a more perfect and romantic location to celebrate my husband's birthday with him. The lochside setting was simply magical with breathtaking views and inside the croft had everything we could have wished for. Can't wait to come back to this mystical isle and would like to thank Gail for making our stay so special.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 21 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Beautiful croft, warm & cosy. Loch views are fabulous and the owner has provided everything you need. Feels remote but Portree a short trip away. Wildlife amazing. This croft provides a very comfortable and tranquil base on an amazing island

“You will be stunned by the beauty around you”

In late September we arrived after midnight during a driving rainstorm and were delighted to find the cottage warm and cozy. It was spotless, had a great bathroom, a well equipped kitchen and a comfortable bed. There were also outdoor chairs as well as useful supplies for day trips in the shed such as a small backpack and a picnic basket. The supply of wood was large and the fireplace was perfect. It also has a great number of books about the area, which were quite helpful. The deck offered a great view and we often went outside at night to see the incredible stars and enjoy the intense quiet.

The property was only a few minutes outside of Portree, where there is a great supermarket and many options to eat and drink. As you drive and hike around Skye you’ll get to the point where you’ll almost stop taking pictures since everything is so beautiful. We stayed mostly in the northern region of Skye during our stay, since there were so many interesting hikes and things to see. Our Favorite hike was Coral Beach, just north of Claigan.

We also found a beautiful drive by chance one day. We were heading south on A863 from Dunvagan and turned left onto B885 just past Bracadale, which leads into Portree. The road was largely single-track the entire way and the area was so beautiful that it stunned your senses.

We had the distinction of being the first couple from the United States that stayed at the Skye Croft during 2012, and it hurts that we may not be back for a while, but we will be back……………………………….
