Skye is a beautiful island and the views from the cottage were stunning.

The owners made us feel extremely welcome. They had gone out of their way to ensure that we had everything we needed. The location of the Cottage was idyllic.

I have already recommended this property, and destination to friends at work. We had a really lovely holiday, and would stay there again.

The hosts were very welcoming and helpful - they went the extra mile to help make our holiday enjoyable and nothing was too much trouble. The Cottage is beautiful, with a very efficient log burner and excellent facilities. It is ideally suited to exploring the Misty Isle, which has some of the most breathtaking scenery we have ever visited. Everything about the Cottage and our hosts were excellent!

Wonderful cottage, location and owners.
Mr Laidlaw

Had a lovely welcome, all home comforts and a really relaxed atmosphere. Thoughtfully left to our own devices with absolute privacy in the knowledge that there was always someone on call should any difficulties arise (which they didn't). Stunning scenery and lucky for us, beautiful weather. Perfect break!

The cottage is in a very peaceful setting, situated a short drive from many stunning coastal and mountain walks. Perfect if you want to get away from it all. The cottage is a lovely base and quite central for visits to the rest of the island. The owners were very friendly and helpful, and it was lovely to stay on a working farm. We were fortunate to have week of glorious sunshine. Couldn't have been better.

This was a beautiful cottage, well off the beaten path. It is well appointed, and the owners were really lovely and kind.
Mr Cairns

The cottage was everything you could ask for when wanting to get away from the city; outstanding scenery, great people and the cottage interior was just perfect. Both the dogs and I loved and enjoyed wandering around the vast land that surrounds the cottage.
Mrs Pegrum
June 2014
The house met our needs in every way being comfortable, clean and with a bonny, welcoming air. Its position was perfect for visiting the Island and yet away from traffic noise, and we were within walking distance of the most perfect spot for river bathing that we have ever encountered. And importantly, the owners who lived next door were friendly and helpful to us, our dog (who loved meeting their cats and dogs) and our three children who were encouraged to roam and explore. I couldn't recommend this place enough.
Mr Emirali

The owners were incredibly helpful and generous. The cottage had everything you could possibly want.
Mr Higgins

Great property in a fabulous location off the beaten track. The owners couldn't do enough for us and left a welcome pack with some basic provisions and local produce. The cottage had everything for a quiet relaxing holiday. The standard of the property and the hospitality of the owners were excellent!
Mrs Murphy

Beautiful cottage with a warm welcome and well situated.
Mrs Chisholm

The owner was very friendly and helpful. The area was peaceful and beautiful. The Islands never fail to fulfil all my holiday expectations.
Mr Carr
June 2013
The property perfectly matched our needs. It is in a beautiful location with lovely views and the surrounding area is stunning. The cottage itself was well equipped, warm and comfortable. The owners were very helpful and accommodating, our 20 month old granddaughter in particular loved feeding the owner's lambs.
Mr Richter

The cottage is in a quiet location away from tourist routes. But it is also a good location for trips around northerly places in Skye like Storr, Rhuba Hunish, Waternish Point, Uig, Portree and The Ridge. It is close to the Protree Supermarket.

Absolutely a superb accommodation and memorable stay at a working croft. Owners were wonderful and helpful. It is a good location for day trips or catching a ferry at Uig to islands. Highly recommend.
December 2012
Helpful on-site owners. Clean, comfortable house with appliances that worked well.2 bathrooms were a boon. Good beds. Quiet,cul de sac. Traditional house nicely renovated.
May 2013
Trotternish cottage was well presented and decorated. It was warm and cosy on arrival, with the log fire prepared and ready to light. The owner met us at the door and was friendly and helpful. All appliances worked perfectly, and the wood burning stove was fantastic - we stuck on one large log and it kept the house warm all evening with no further coaxing required! Lovely, comfy beds too!! The cottage is in a peaceful location, well situated for visiting Uig, Portree and Dunvegan etc. There is a pretty garden, which would be ideal for a barbecue (provided) in good weather. If you like cats, there are some friendly ones on the farm that will come into the garden and socialise if invited! It should be noted that there is no mobile phone coverage at the house, though there is a phonebox down the street. If you want to get away from the rat race, this is a great place to stay. We had a great time, thanks!

Our first trip to the Isle of Skye and we couldn't have found a more perfect place to stay. Very welcoming hosts Gordon and Margaret who have paid considerable attention to detail to ensure guests enjoy their cottage experience. Loved the woodburner in the evenings, watching the lambs playing outside and the stunning views. If you are thinkng of booking we highly recommend you do. If you want a remote and relaxing location you have found it.
November 2015
We loved this cottage. Well worth the 8 hour drive. Lovely owners who helped when asked and couldn't do enough for us. The Isle of Syke is a beautiful place with so many stunning places to visit. Gordon let us use some of the land to comfortably walk our dog off lead away from cattle. We appreciated that. A little word of warning the National Lottery funded walk across the river is great BUT please watch out for the 3 cows through the second gate! In summary we had a relaxing week but Gordon please sort out those noisy pipes from the log burner!

We have been to Skye twice a year for the past ten years and I can honestly say that this cottage is probably the best presented one in which we have stayed. Well worth the eleven hour drive with our two wee dogs. Gordon and Margaret should be rightly proud of this little gem. Clean, comfortable, warm and welcoming. The location is ideal for travelling round the north of the Island with Portree only a fifteen minute drive away and Uig only ten minutes away. It was nice to know that Gordon and Margaret were only next door if anything was needed but everything worked well. I was going to pass the details of this wonderful cottage on to my friends but decided against it, just in case they wanted to book the same time as me! We will definitely be back. Thanks.
