Customer Reviews of The Stables, Isle of Skye - Sleeps 2

1st comment: Liked the stay in the historical Monkstad and would recommend it to anybody. I am sure that many people would stay there only for its historical background if they knew about it. March 2012.

2nd comment: The Accommodation was fantastic! The rooms were nice and clean and the area is amazing! Beautiful views of the sea and great for walking the dog! Dec 2011.

3rd comment: Perfect home away from home. The cottage was wonderful - cosy and warm, and even when the wind was blowing outside, we felt comfortable and all tucked up! You would always need a car for a holiday in Skye and the cottage was located near the Quaraing and the Old Man of Stor - perfect for photos. Highly recommend the Flodigarry Hotel for food - go for the bar menu - really tasty! Oct 2011.
