3rd comment: Spacious comfortable cottage. Quiet location on edge of village with lovely views. Great for dogs and situation ideal for exploring north Skye. July 2010.

4th comment: The property has a good central location for exploring the north of the island. The cottage is warm, comfortable and spacious. The beds are comfy if maybe a bit low to the floor for anyone with aches and pains. The rayburm is fab but remember to give it plenty time to warm up. The cottage is well stocked with the essentials like towels, condiments, loo roll and coffee. The owners were amazingly helpful and really kind. I asked for help getting maybe champagne on arrival for my mum’s birthday. The bottle and glasses along with lovely flowers and a warm house. Well above our expectations. Thank you so much. It really made my Mum’s birthday. ***** for customer service. Only down thing I can mention is the obvious welcome of pets, only mention this because I have an alergy so spent the first couple of days sneezing. Oct 2009.

5th comment: Well laid out clean and spacious. Oct 2009.
