Whilst on the island full advantage can be taken of some of Scotland’s finest restaurants, many offering dining with unrivalled views. Shop 5 miles. Nearest pub/hotel 2 miles.

Customer Reviews of Drover's Rest, Isle of Skye - Sleeps 4

1st comment: A fantastic property would definitely go back to. All fixtures and fittings to a high standard. Fantastic ’Welcome Book’ with lots of information. Suggested walks were excellent. The weather was varied, gales, rain, even hail but just added to the feel of the place if you ask me. You want sun? Go to the Med. You want ’weather’? Go to Scotland. A great cottage to come ’home’ to after a days walking. I will be back! Sept 2011.

2nd comment: Very comfortable, warm, excellent facilities, quiet will return again. A good holiday despite very poor weather (according to local residents unseasonal). Drovers Rest is well maintained and good value for money. May 2011.

3rd comment: The kitchen was incredibly well equipped; I enjoyed baking bread, scones and oatcakes while I was there. Everything was very clean too. Feb 2011.
