Woodlands Cottage is very tastefully decorated and really feels like a real home. The location is fabulous. Watching the ever changing tidal loch was great. The owners are very welcoming. I would absolutely go back on my next visit.

Woodlands Cottage is warm and cosy, it is well stocked and has a home from home feel. The view from the conservatory is fantastic. We had a wonderful Christmas break.

The view over the loch from the conservatory is spectacular. Watching herons fishing was a great addition to our holiday.

The cottage is the best base imaginable to discover the Isle of Skye. If it's really rainy, staying at home is a pleasant option, particularly in the porch with full view of light and birds at the loch. Well-equipped, full of space and light, at the same time warm and cosy. Seriously consider returning.

We found this cottage to be in a wonderful location, it was spotlessly clean, warm, cosy, and very well equipped. We enjoyed sitting in the conservatory, watching the large variety of birds on the loch. The night skies were wonderful to see. We hope to visit Woodlands Cottage again in the near future.

We have stayed in many rented properties both in the UK and overseas but none have exceeded Woodlands Cottage. Completely living up to the descriptions the cottage is beautifully fitted out and the welcome pack left by the owners was a pleasant bonus. All the rooms are first class, but we spent most of our time in the conservatory looking over the loch and watching a heron fishing at the bottom of our garden! Magical. The area is great too, with easy access to the local Co-Op for provisions and, of course, the island is small enough to investigateby car. All in all a wonderful holiday in a great rental. Completely recommended. PS - WiFi is so sloooooow. Made me appreciate living in the big city.

The conservatory at the rear of the property, overlooking the loch, was a very relaxing room to unwind after a day's hiking.
