Cnoc Uaine was an absolutely beautiful, clean and peaceful home. We went on our honey moon here Back in early November and Etta left us a great welcome basket with Wine, bread, butter and some other snacks. The home was perfect for what we were looking for. It was directly in the middle of the Isle of Skye's beauty, yet only 20 minutes from the biggest town, Portree. It was also within an hour of all of the main sights of Skye and food. All in all, I couldn't say a bad thing about this house and highly recommend it to all. We would love to go back to Skye at some point in our lives, and if this comes true, we will definitely book Cnoc Uaine again.
The house is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean, plenty of lights and lamps available for reading and crochet! All the basics you need are supplied and the welcome pack is perfect after a long journey including milk, butter, bread, wine, biscuits and even treats for the dogs. The tea, coffee and sugar canisters were full and plentiful supplies of toilet and kitchen paper are in the cupboards.
There are beautiful views from the house and garden and there's always something to look at with trawlers, small boats and the ferry to Raasay bustling around on the sea. With the sun shining and the tide out seals come onto the rocks just to the right of the house and enjoy some quiet time. The stars at night are fantastic to watch.
The house is private and secluded but Portree is just 20 minutes away along a very scenic route. There's a small Coop in the town itself or a larger store on the Dunvegan road. Mackenzies bakery is well worth a visit but expect to gain a few pounds.
The garden is large and secure for dogs although we always supervised ours due to the sheep and cows around the area.
All in all a perfect place to stay.

We have just returned from a lovely stay on Skye. The property has been finished to a very high standard, we had a lovely welcome and the house has everything you need for your holiday. The location was perfect for relaxing and enjoying the scenery, the views are amazing. The local area is lovely for walking. A perfect place to explore the rest of the island. Would definitely recommend.
