“Excellent spot”
Reviewed 19 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Firstly, as arriving on a Fri, 'check-in' was 5pm, but as we didn't want to arrive in the dark, the owner said from 1pm onwards - we might have slightly struggled to find the place after dark. With that in mind, if anyone is arriving after dark, perhaps the housekeeper leaving a lamp on or something would be good. The cottage is pleasantly deceiving from the outside, it's larger than you think. Great work of space inside, all amenities you need, I'd say an oven glove would be a welcome addition! It's a lovely cottage and a great log fire, with plenty of logs chopped for your stay. Views are perfect in the morning for the sunrise, especially from the main double bedroom. Portree itself is 6 miles away, be prepared to drive as cabs are unreliable after a certain time of night, in case you want to have a meal/alcohol out. There is a supermarket on the way into Portree, which is very handy. All in all, great cottage in a fab location and very easy to deal with for booking/deposit back. Most definitely will be back, brilliant find on Skye.

“Fantastic to return to a very special place”
Reviewed 5 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My second stay, much-anticipated and thoroughly enjoyed. The cottage is perfectly appointed, super-comfortable and my go-to place to escape, relax and unwind.

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed 23 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Stayed here in September with friends, and it was wonderful. We really enjoyed the open plan of the house, wonderful for relaxing after a day exploring the island. The location is perfect, great for accessing the whole island. It's a dream house.

“Just Perfect...”
Reviewed 24 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Wonderful Skeabost Wood Cottage already has so many great reviews there is not really much I can add about the quality of the accommodation, very high standard and attention to detail of the interior, ideal position on the island etc - all absolutely brilliant.

Anyone interested in architecture/design will really enjoy seeing how well what is actually a relatively modest house has been so carefully planned out to look great, function perfectly and sit really well in it's setting.

For me the best thing about the cottage is the way it brings the outside in. It was lovely to watch the ever changing view across farmland to the mountains and the birds, bats and rabbits just outside the cottage, and be able to stand in the bedroom widow with your head and shoulders outside... a bit like very very posh camping!

Stay here if you can.
