We had such a lovely time at Skeabost - the house is just beautiful and I could have sat for hours staring out to the beautiful landscape! The house has everything you need and the beds are super comfortable! It's also very quiet so perfect for a relaxing break on beautiful Skye! Will definitely be back!

Won't spend much of the time reviewing all the positives as it has been done at length by other reviewers below: it's a quality build (would serve as a benchmark in terms of what insulation should be) with pretty much every amenity one would expect from a home away from home. Rarely have we felt so comfortable on a holiday....

Management response:

Hi thank you so much for your review - looking into replacing the saucepans immediately - I am so sorry you had to buy a frying pan. Many thanks for letting us know, and I do hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday . All the best Charles
