Second time staying at this property, says how good it was both times

It was only in one particular area where we felt our expectations had not been met.. In all other areas, we were very happy with the Cottage, its aspect, and its facilities. Our disappointment was in the size of the single bedroom. It was simply not large enough for an adult, or adolescent, and is more suited to a child. As I say, the dbl bedroom and twin bedded rooms were absolutely fine, but the single room was cramped and awkward for an adult to sleep, and move around in with any reasonable degree of comfort.

Perfect house in a historic stile at a perfect place with a wonderful view over fiscavaig bay.. Space enough for 5 persons. A lot of possibilities to do in the region.

My wife, daughter and I stayed here for a week as a relaxing break away from the city and something different. We've never done self catering before and this was a great first experience. I'd been to Skye climbing in the past but only stayed in hostels. We went to Portree, the Old man of Storr, faery pools, Eilean Donan Castle, Staffin beach (to hunt dinosaur fossils but ended up in the muesum lol) and Taigh Ailean for an amazing meal. This cottage is absolutely stunning! We crammed in a lot in a week but looked forward to returning to this cozy cottage everyday. The views morning, mid-day and night are stunning! Its well equipped, modernised, comfortable, spacious and SO RELAXING. Its so peaceful and quiet! The owner kindly put together a portfolio with helpful advice which was very much appreciated and we enjoyed reading the brief history about how the cottage came to be. Its been well looked after over the years and we feel privileged to have stumbled across this hidden little gem tucked away on the corner of Skye.

Very beautiful and very comfortable house.. It looks traditional, on the inside and the outside, but is fully equiped with all mod cons. Very spacious, nicely decorated, good clean beds. Unfortunaly we had a small problem with one of the showers, but as there are two in the house that was no problem. The owner reacted very prompt to our questions. The view from the house on Fiskavaig Bay is breathtaking! Skye is great for walking, visiting historic sites, (Dunvegan, Fairy Glen), lovely villages, restaurants and the Talisker distillery (close to Bayview House). We would recommend this house to everyone who loves the above!

We all had a great time in Skye, the cottage we stayed in was perfect, amazing location 100%

There was not much more to be desired, it was a nice place and a prime location.. The information delivered was (key pickup etc) was all fine. One note to make is to stock up supplies (e.g. in Broadford at the Co-op, coming from Inverness and just over the Skye bridge) before one arrives, as the shop in Carbost is very limited and is not open on Sunday. Next nearest would be Portree, which is an hour drive away).

Lovely cottage but distance from main Skye road a little misleading.. It states leaving Carbost into Portnalong but it’s a good 2-3 miles actually to the cottage, on a pot- holed single track road. More remote than we expected.

This cottage was excellent, it was lovely that the heating was on when we arrived as had driven for over 12 hours to get there.. It was a very, quiet peaceful, cosy cottage with lots of storage space for clothes and belongings. We had one wet day and just enjoyed being there as the views were lovely. We were wondering about whether to book this cottage as there was no wifi but are glad we did but this may put people off. Also, the mobile phone signal was not good which was a bit of an inconvenience..

Bayview is a lovely cottage with beautiful views of the bay, quiet, peaceful, clean, warm and very comfortable inside.. There was everything we needed, the kitchen is fully equipped, lounge is cosy and comfortable sofas with TV, big dining room, two bathrooms. Perfectly for a family. The location is central - the Fairy Pools on the doorstep, the popular Sligachan and Glen Brittle are also only a short drive away. Not to mention the Talisker distillery which you pass every time you go out. We went walking everyday and was happy to come back and rest our tired legs in this lovely house and didn't want to leave. Definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Skye!

This is our second visit to Bayview - every bit as good as our October visit.. Again the cottage was so clean and comfortable, and we are getting to know the neighbours. The Fiskavaig area is delightful, and again we were blessed with amazing weather. The views of the Bay at all times never ceases to give Wonder!

A comfortable, spacious and clean house. Lovely views from all the front windows and a short walk down to a nice little bay when the tide is out. Very quiet location.

Beautiful view and a stunning cottage. The pictures of it on line do not do it justice. The kitchen is extremely well equipped. This is a great place.

We had a lovely week at the cottage. It is in a fantastic location with great views, Skye is well worth a visit. Highly recommend a weeks stay at Bayview House.

What a beautiful place, Myself and My Husband dont really do walking as both in our 50's we love to get away from it all and have a peaceful relaxing time without all the noise and pollution, This was perfect for us ! We did a couple of walks to fairy pools and old man of storr, but much preferred to stay at the House and have a beer whilst sitting at the picnic bench and enjoying the breathtaking views, absolutely spectacular. Had a visit every day from a Roe Deer that loved to venture into the garden and the birds singing to us, very relaxing and great way to recharge the old batteries. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.! I WOULD DEFINITELY GO BACK PLEASE SELL ME YOUR HOUSE !!!

Bayview House is situated in a wonderful location. It sits just above Fiskavaig Bay and the views are lovely. It is a good sized house and very comfortable.

Bayview House was the ideal base for our 2 week holiday on Skye - perfect location with stunning views, whatever the weather but especially at sunset. The house was cosy, comfortable and extremely well equipped - a real home from home. We hope to be back very soon!

It is a lovely cottage in a fantastically beautiful setting, with good views of the bay that change every day depending on the weather. It is situated with easy access to all parts of Skye.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Bayview Cottage. The bay at the front of the house was a great source of adventure for the children. The views were beautiful. The cottage had we needed for our week away and was well equipped and nicely furnished. It was easy to get to all the places that we wanted to across the island. We would love to come back again.

This was our first holiday in a cottage, and we were very impressed. The cottage was clean, spacious and well equipped. The view over the bay was beautiful, and it was lovely to wake up to this view every morning.

Mrs Beale

The location of the property was second to none, with fantastic views over the lochs and islands. It has a beach immediately opposite, which we paddled our sea kayaks from, and swam in the loch. The cottage was warm and comfortably furnished.
