Customer Reviews of Red Chimneys Cottage, Colbost - sleeps 4

The cottage had stunning views across Dunvegan Loch. Also within clear sight was Dunvegan castle & the snow tipped Cuillin hills. The house had a traditional farm cottage look from outside & appears to have been renovated, furnished & decorated to a very high standard inside with all mod cons whilst still retaining some of it's authentic charm. The location on the west coast of Skye was also a perfect base to then further explore the other parts of the isle.

We spent a delightful week at Red Chimneys. The cottage was equipped with everything we needed and more. It was a real home from home and the internet was great for two teenagers! The views were wonderful. We will definitely return.

Both location and cottage were lovely. The pigs at the bottom of the garden were the star attraction, very friendly.

The cottage was equipped to a very high standard. Despite being very lucky with the weather the underfloor heating was bliss! I just wish it had been a bit cooler in the evening so that we could light the wood burning stove. The view and surrounding area was the icing on the cake, just stunning. For the perfect get away from it all holiday in outstanding comfort then you will find it here.

A beautiful cottage in an exquisite location. It was great for exploring the island and was so quiet and peaceful for that perfect get away from it all holiday. The cottage was very well equipped with books, games and DVDs should the weather force an indoor day. We would highly recommend Red Chimneys Cottage and will be booking a return visit in the not too distant future.
