Having stayed in the cottage the previous year and loved it we knew pretty much what to expect and again it did not disappoint! !

This cottage couldn't be in a better location, the views are stunning.. The road down to the cottage is a bit narrow and uneven but we .managed in our little C1. The warm and cosy cottage has everything possible you could need and is really well set out. My only criticism could be that it needs a little updating. Loose towel rails, lumpy mattress, dated decor. But all this is forgotten when you look out of the window. One last thing dont be frightened when you hear bangs against the walls in the night, it's just the sheep.

This may well be the best view in Skye, looking across to the whole Cuillin ridge, Blaven and the red hills - on a good day, just add spectacular sunset.. Huge windows let the view and the light flood in. Such a well-designed and well-equipped house, and impeccably clean on arrival; an excellent base for exploring south Skye which has so much to offer. We absolutely loved it, and would love to come back. (Happy for you to quote the above. Our only niggle, and very slight - somewhat uncomfortable synthetic pillows; we understand they are practical, but maybe worth investing in an upgrade - we have otherwise slept so well on Skye.)

Increadable views, spacious house in a beautiful surrounding..

The house was warm and cosy for a trip to Skye in November.. The views are spectacular, the best way to wake up. You could happily just sit and look out of the windows all day. The wildlife is amazing we saw deer, seals and dolphins from the house and an array of small birds. Just a perfect antidote from normal life. Will be back.

This house feels like home to us, with everything we need and a view to die for..
Ms Cooper, October 2019
September 2019
Wow! What a view! Also the cottage is brilliantly laid out for a holiday property with plenty of space for 6 people to relax. Comfortable beds, lots of hot water, always cosily heated on pur return from a day out and plenty cooking equipment etc. The property is wonderfully secluded - 6 miles down a single track road - and so an integral part of the Skye experience. However Broadford, with its Co-op is accessible. Great place, thanks
Mrs Holt, September 2019
September 2019
Great value for money.. Easy to book and very accurate listing. Check in seamless and as arranged. Property very clean and well looked after. Superb views and maybe some more photos of that would also enhance future bookings...so much better than we had hoped and it did not disappoint. Rooms well kitted out and all bigger than we thought. Great location and directions provided spot on! Knew this part of the island but had never stayed on that side of the south. Would definitely return...and did not actually want to leave!! Would definitely recommend!!

A great cottage in a great location, if you are into your wildlife then this is the place to be.. Watching the red deer while having breakfast, what could be better.

Great location .. house could do with a good dusting and clean out. Thick dust on most surfaces. Bit dated decor
Ms Cooper
March 2019
This cosy, comfortable house is a great size for a group of friends and family who like to enjoy their own different interests and come together at dinner time, looking out over the most spectacular view.. The house has a lot of character and fits so well in the environment, with sheep, deer, owls and other wildlife all around and incredible sunsets most nights. We love this place.
Mrs Harris

The cottage was brilliant, so clean and comfortable, the views are amazing and with the added bonus of 2 friendly deer in the garden..

We are regular visitors to Thorsvik in Skye and the house feels like our second home.. It caters for six of us very well, with plenty of room to allow for all our interests; drawing, bird/animal/star watching, adventuring, reading, playing games, watching films, cooking, baking etc. It is a cosy, welcoming house in an amazing location with good facilities for all weather and eventualities.
Miss Swain

Utterly amazing place! Cannot speak highly enough of it. The road in is not for anyone who is not confident behind the whe if the car but oh so worth the extra effort. I have never felt so st home from home in my life Thorsvik is an outstanding home and very well suited for a truly relaxing get away from everything.
Mrs Robinson
September 2018
Despite the variable weather - the experience on Skye was wonderful.. The cottage was a home from home with the added bonus of the wildlife nearby - especially the deer who visited every day. Local residents were so friendly and hospitable - ready to offer advice and we even joined in a weekly local art class where we were welcomed with open arms. People were so ready to tell us about special places on the Island and we learnt so much about local history, lore and legend. We met "incomers" who had settled on the Island and they were honest and open about the advantages and disadvantages of Island living which enhanced our overall visit. Most of the people working in the service industry - cafes, restaurants, shops were friendly and helpful.

We are regular visitors to this house and we always feel very much at home.. A lovely, cosy house with good facilities and a stunning view of the Cuillins.

Thorsvik was wounderful.. We was blown away by how much more than just the essentials this property harbours, the kitchen, the laundry room, the multiple bathrooms. Anything you might need while on your holiday that you forgot to bring is probably there! Including a fascinating collection of books to admire. This place feels very homely, and the views from the decking area are spectacular! (Photos do no justice). We are likely to return :)
Mr Kilpatrick

Simply an incredible property, with a totally breathtaking view.. We had a brilliant time here over Hogamanay and really enjoyed exploring the surrounding landscape. Remote but very deserving of the journey!
Mrs Dixon
December 2017
Very easy booking - all the information was provided very clearly and quickly.. Everything was exactly as expected. The cottage was amazing - extremely comfortable and the best location we have experienced after several trips to Scotland. The caretaker was friendly and very willing to answer any queries and the owner also called to check that all was well. We had a superb holiday - many thanks!
Mrs Clubb

Fantastic views from the cottage.. Very comfortable with everything you could wish for in a holiday cottage
Mrs Clarke
November 2017
We had a wonderful week at Thorsvik, the home was very well equipped and comfortable.. The views are amazing and we saw plenty of wildlife including the elusive pine martin. Thorsvik is just the place to escape the hustle and bustle with the peaceful surroundings and the panoramic views. The only downside was each time I attempted to make a meal I was drawn to every window to admire the view so we ate late every night (a problem that was more of a bonus). Also the house was supprisingly warm for an open plan space we had to turn the heating down in November. We will definetly be returning.
Mrs Gurtner
October 2017
Thorsvik is a wonderful place.. The house and the rooms are very comfortable, homely and cosy. The nature around is beautiful. We only could enjoy everything! We can recommend Thorsvik to 100 % and will come back again!

This beautiful house feels like home, with the most spectacular view that changes constantly with the changing light and weather.. A peaceful place surrounded by wildlife and close to small communities. A really beautiful part of Skye.

It's a minor thing, but there was a slight damp smell in both bedrooms to the back of the property.. Would be worth resolving as I know some people would find this off putting.
Mr Miller, October 2016

This cosy, homely house has the most spectacular view.. A sea eagle flew past as soon as we arrived and there were otters and seals very close to shore most days.
Miss Michael

Excellent location, extremely comfortable and warm cottage with plenty of space for everyone and the most spectacular views. I think this is the fifth or sixth time we have visited and noticed lots of improvements like a new cooker hood, lights, better plumbing and, most usefully, the gate to the cottage was much easier to open and close.

We particularly liked being secluded and able to switch off from day to day life. We had a lovely walk and went for a drive too. Thorsvik was a great size, not limited on space at all. Plenty utensils and facilities.

It was wonderful being somewhere so remote! Peaceful and very restful, though the wireless broadband was an essential to stop us going mad.
