Customer Reviews of Thatched Croft, Skye - Sleeps 2

1st comment: Our holiday in the thatched croft was wonderful, we couldn’t have asked for better accommodation or weather. May 2012.

2nd comment: Lovely cottage in a quiet location with outstanding views. We have been coming to Skye for 20 years it was nice to stay in a tradtional croft. Would stay again. Aug 2011.

3rd comment: We had an absolutely wonderful holiday in Skye & would thoroughly recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing, peaceful haven. The scenery is stunning & there are lots of superb walks to do. Thatched Croft was perfect for us, located where we wanted to be in the north of Skye in a tiny ’village’, it has everything you need. It also has a good sized enclosed garden which our dog thoroughly enjoyed. A perfect holiday & a perfect cottage for a couple (plus dog!). July 2011.

4th comment: Excellent for those with dogs, as the property is enclosed, just as well, as there are cows, sheep and pigs quite close by.Ideal for a quiet holiday, although shops only 2 miles away. Terrific walking country with spectacular scenery. May 2011.
