5th comment: This was a fantastic place to stay and we would definitely recommend ’The Holt’. The owners were very welcoming to us and our dog and every need catered for. The scenery was amazing and we had fantastic weather. April 2011.
6th comment: The Holt was perfect for the 2 of us - small but excellently equipped with everything we could have needed. It was in a great position for the village and also for walking straight out for days from the house. Liz and Pete were great too - always there if you needed them but not at all intrusive. The wine, shortbread and Easter egg on arrival were well received! A perfect cottage for 2 adults or a young family. April 2011.
7th comment: Everything was there to make us comfortable and there was plenty of information on the cottage and the history of the area and places of interest. Nov 2010.

9th comment: Situation was excellent. Inside the cottage it had everything we have at home right down to the small things such as writing paper, hair dryer, plenty of books to read also the the kitchen was well stocked with anything you need. Sept 2010.
10th comment: To be honest I am reluctant to give this property an accurate rating as we loved it so much we are afraid it will become too popular. The place, Glenelg, is stunning and the property is a gem. Washing up has never been so pleasant, with a view of the hills and regular sightings of birds of prey. The owners are wonderful and have tried to think of everything. Sept 2010.
11th Comment Access to Skye just down the road. Owners very friendly and helpful. Aug 2010.
