After a long and windy rainy journey, it was lovely to enter a warm and very clean cottage. The owners had left milk, bread etc for us so we could warm ourselves up, in front of a lovely fire with a nice cup of tea. This is in addition to the central heating!
The kitchen and utility room are well equipped with the normal units including a microwave oven, dishwasher, good washing machine and separate tumble drier. The bedrooms were beautiful and spacious and the beds were very comfortable.
There are good views looking out from the front windows of the cottage but there are no views from the back of the cottage except via skylights in the roof. There were only 2 of us, but if there were 6 people in the house, the table would have to be set up for meal times and put away to allow people to make full use of the lounge. The modem and internet was easy to find and once connected, we had no problems in getting on the internet. However, we needed to go outside to get a mobile connection.
We liked the location since it was in the north part of Skye which we wanted to see. There is a shop in Staffin near Digg, where we could buy groceries and where there are a couple of cafes/restaurants. We ate at the Flodigarry Hotel which is north of Digg. It had been revamped over the winter months - lovely place, good for that special occasion but it is pricey.
Lots of touristy places to visit, beautiful walks - recommend visiting the Quiraing along the Trotternish ridge. Also look for the dinosaur footprint in the rocks at Staffin.
We did not see the owner until half way through the holiday but this was ok since we had talked with him before the holiday as recommended by trip advisor.
All in all, the cottage is well looked after with modern units and comfortable furnishings.
