Very large, comfortable and modern accommodation with every facility needed and lovely loch view.. . Good location e.g short journeys to Portree and Uig ferry.

We we're truly delighted with the service provided by Sykes and the facilities at the Riverside Cottage property were fantastic.. The owners, James Lamont and family, could not have done more to make our stay comfortable, enjoyable and safe. They are to be congratulated for the care taken to provide every possible amenity, fabulous first class property and a friendly and helpful attitude towards their guests. This is a genuine 5-star property that will exceed the expectations of the most discerning of people. We will be back! - the only problem is that it may well be difficult to secure a booking in the future because it is such a desirable holiday let. Well done to all concerned - truly remarkable. Thank you so much.

A very helpful owner.. Very well appointed accommodation with excellent views and well located for many attractions and facilities at Portree.
Mr Hood, September 2020

To be honest.. .. The pictures don't do the cottage or location justice. Both are much better in the flesh. The cottage is spacious, very well kitted out and very warm. With viewing windows over over the estuary, complete with 5 leather reclining chairs. WOW! We had a great week, even the weather played ball with us and was warmishly dry. Skye is a beautiful place (where mountains meet the water) and we highly recommend it, and the cottage to anyone who loves nature, or simply want to get away from the hustle & bustle of life. ...the kids said the broadband was good too

This was a wonderfully spacious house, furnished to a very high and comfortable standard.. The kitchen was extremely well equipped. Under the circumstances it was reassuring to find so much hand sanitiser and soap available for our use. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The wildlife was exceptional - sea eagles, golden eagles and dolphins all visible from the living room. We have stayed in numerous self catering properties over the years and this is certainly one of the best.

Exceptional property 10/10 across the board Mr & Mrs Lamont our contacts for the property were lovely to deal with and extremely helpful.. The cottage itself was a wonderful place to return to after a long days hiking round the islands picturesque sights, with it underfloor heating, hot hot showers and the well equipped kitchen to make your eagerly anticipated dinner it was home from home. then you had the luxury of stretching out and chilling out in the lounge area on the sofas with their built in footrests and watch tv. This property comes highly recommended if you want Space, luxury it might not appeal to those who might want a traditional style accommodation but if you want a beautifully appointed cottage with lots of space and all the creature comforts treat yourself to a stay at Riverside Cottage, like the rest of the island it is wonderful and we can't wait to return to Skye and hopefully we can book Riverside Cottage again if its fame and popularity allows.

Riverside Cottage was the perfect place to base ourselves to discover Skye.. It was very clean, warm, and had everything and more for a comfortable stay. James was very helpful and we would definitely recommend this cottage. We hope we can visit again!

Riverside cottage is a first class holiday home that has been well designed and furnished to an exceptionally high standard.. The views from the cottage are stunning and we were very fortunate to watch a sea eagle fly past. We received a lovely warm welcome when we arrived and greatly appreciated the beautiful flower and chocolates left for us. This was our 4th visit to the cottage and we will definitely be back again.

This was our first holiday on Skye and Riverside Cottage made the experience perfect.. The cottage is superb and so comfortable. There is nothing you could want for. All the fixtures and fittings are of the highest quality. Best of all, though, was the view ! We always looked forward to returning "home" after a day out. A big thank you to the Lamont family.
Mr Hunt

This was our second visit to this lovely cottage in an area which we love.. The people that we dealt with were extremely friendly and helpful. The cottage itself is to the very highest standard in all respects and a lovely place to come back to each day. The view over the loch and the sunsets are fantastic. A very relaxing break and we hope to be back soon.

The Riverside Cottage, was excellent built about 4 years ago, Mrs Lamont was very welcoming and helpful and there was every facility you could wish for, set in lovely countryside.. This was a holiday to be remembered for all the right reasons.

Mrs Oudney

Riverside Cottage is an excellent holiday property, it’s large kitchen is fully equipped with everything that you could possibly need.. The sun room provides beautiful views over the river Snizort and is a lovely place to sit and relax after a day of sightseeeing. The house was spotlessly clean on arrival and the fresh flowers and chocolates a nice welcoming touch. We would thoroughly recommend this property to anyone looking to holiday in Skye.

We have only put Met Expectations because this is our second time at this cottage.. If anything could be improved ( newer cooking pans) this is a minor nit-pick. Everything was great.
Martin
April 2018
The cottage was outstanding and had every mod con we could possibly need.. The house was spotless and a great space for our group to relax in between exploring the Island. It was central in location and had ample parking. The grounds were well kept and the outdoor space was great for the younger members of our group. There is a lot of personal touches in the cottage. In addition there were 2 easter eggs left for the kids which was a lovely thoughtful touch. Would highly recommend a stay here as the views are spectacular and the host is easy to contact and answered all our questions. We had a fantastic time and certainly intend to return in the future.

My family's lasting memory of our recent trip will be the disgusting attitude of the owner's representative who was as grossly unpleasant as she was unprofessional. On our departure day, the woman allowed herself into the property via the locked front door at 9.50am and then proceeded to openly insult my wife, in front of my son and daughter, as we were "lazy, lazy people" who "can't read simple instructions" (the departure time was 10am). When my wife explained that we hadn't realised her rules were quite so rigid but if she'd allow us 15 minutes, we'd have the bags packed into the car and the property tidied to the standard we found it, she was dismissed again as "lazy" and told she should have "got up sooner". When I suggested that her shocking treatment of guests wasn't exactly best business practise she laughed it off stating: "we're booked through all next summer". What made the entire episode more galling was the fact that she wasn't even expecting her next unsuspecting customers until the following day, so she'd literally gone out of her way to show up early and show my children that the Isle of Skye isn't just scenic walks, fun adventures and natural beauty. When I told her I would apologise to my kids for having the misfortune of meeting such a rude woman she replied: "They'll meet much worse than me in Glasgow," which I felt summed up her view of the her lower-class guests, who should be more obedient when they are allowed to pay through the nose to stay at her property. Otherwise, Riverside Cottage is a cosy, modern, well-equipped home in a magnificent location.

This cottage is perfect in every way. Location is only 10 mins north of Portree. The views over Snizort Loch are amazing. The cottage is well equipped with everything you need. The welcome we receive was great and the owners were very flexible on key pick up time. Lovely touches like fresh flowers and chocolates.

This is a truly fantastic property maintained to the very highest levels in a beautiful location.. The owner was exceptionally helpful. The only shame was that we could not stay there for longer!

Perfect cottage - the location, the views - a perfect place to relax and unwind. The cottage is a very high spec and has everything you need for a perfect break. The location is wonderful and you are close enough to Portree for it's shops, restaurants and supermarket. I would recommend this cottage to anyone. The cottage owner is welcoming and very flexible with arrival times.

Cottage was very spacious and beautiful, the view was incredible. A great quiet place to relax and most places are a quick drive away.

As a party of four adults we appreciated the large communal spaces and good sized bedrooms and bathrooms. Furnishings were as new and very comfortable. Its position was ideal for touring the island. We could not fault this property and would recommend it.

Mr Lloyd

It is rare to find a property that exceeds expectations in almost every way. The kitchen is superbly equipped, the lounge, especially the chairs in the panoramic bay window were a joy to sit in and just let the world go by. The owner should be proud of the way he has refurbished and presented this house.
