I booked this cottage for a week in August through skye cottages. On the day we were travelling I texted to arrange to pick up key and the owner texts me back to say he is not letting his cottage for 2020 so I question why is this cottage advertised if its not available??
Very poor form.
Very basic, no outside seating to take in the views. TV was sooo small was pointless trying to watch it. Stayed warm using the oil fired central heating but had to endure the smell of the fumes from the oil! Couldn't find any smoke detectors or a fire extinguisher/fire blanket (which would surely be by the cooker in the kitchen?) The owner has since said they were there and checked regularly (his word against ours?) The kettle was broken and there was washing still in the machine. All in all a disappointing 7 days stay.
A beautiful place to stay
The cottage is well located and near the sea, great views, only drawback is the distance to the nearest shops!
This cottage is great.. It's very clean, it's big (plenty of room for the five of us), its owner can be easily reached and quick to answer and its location is simply breath-taking. What a view !!! I recommend it a thousand times and will go back there for sure.
Excellent cottage and location , directions not the most accurate though , feel sure I will go back again ..
Incredible views over coastline and surrounding countryside.
