Customer Reviews of Glenview Cottage, Uig, Sleeps 4
1st comment: Great location, away from everything and stunning views. The cottage itself was lovely, clean and very comfortable. Open fire was great. Only thing we didn’t think of was cleaning utensils that weren’t provided and the local shop does not have long opening hours. Also- if by any chance you are going up there to explore the Hebridean islands, check the ferry times before you go!! We got up there thinking we could check it when we got there, ferries were only once a day in the morning and you must stay overnight in the isles. Otherwise it was a perfect holiday to get away from it all! March 2012.
2nd comment: Cracking base to see Skye. The cottage was just the job and exceeded expectations. Oct 2011.

4th comment: Lovely location, fantastic view over the bay, great for watching the ferries coming and going and the wildlife. The cottage was fully equipped, the beds and furniture were comfortable, a good stock of games, books and videos were available for when the weather closed in. One of the best holiday cottages we have stayed in so far and we’d be happy to stay again. Aug 2011.

11th Comment We loved the view from the property and the location. The property had everything we wanted but could have done with at least a couple of sharp knives in the kitchen. This is a problem we have often encountered when renting property so now always bring a few of our own. June 2010.

17th Comment The cottage was a real home from home, comfortable, cosy and welcoming with great views across the bay. We felt extremely at ease and the cottage is one of the best we’ve stayed in and the owners and caretakers have done an great job with furnishing and fixtures. Everything we needed was at hand. Thanks for a great stay. Nov 2009.
18th Comment Superb position; neat, comfortable sitting-room; kitchen ideally laid out; complete sets of crockery (all in pristine condition) and cutlery; electrical equipment easy to manage - with exception of TV! Sept 2009.
19th Comment The cottage is equipped to a very high standard and was spotlessly clean. The views from the front are great and there was always something to watch when the ferry came into Uig as it was directly in line with the living room window. I would not hesitate to recommend this property. Sept 2009.
20th Comment Cottage extremely clean and welcoming on our arrival. The view from the front of the cottage was beautiful and the open fire made every evening very cosy, even if the island weather was lashing against the windows. Would, and hopefully will, go again! April 2009.
