In a quiet corner of Skye within walking distance of Elgol and the fantastic Sun sets lies Rowan Cottage, where you are assured a warm welcome and hospitality to beat all, Christine and Jim, who is guaranteed to cheer you up even if you think no one can. Lovely costal walks from the front door, and the whole of the... More

Christine and Jim were the perfect entertaining host, Christine cooking was magical, unfussy, excellent value. Looked at some other b b and they were charging far too high a price for evening...

The Isle of Skye's reputation was saved by the wonderful stay at this B & B. We had had a terrible experience in Portree and checked out....we then found Rowan Cottage on the Internet and were not disappointed. Although the cottage is quite a way from a main road, the journey was well worth it to this hidden gem. We... More

I spent 1 night here whilst on a photo trip to Skye and i am so glad i found it. Situated near to Elgol it enjoys fantastic scenery and peacefulness hard to beat. On arriving i received a warm welcome and some fantastic home made cake and a well needed cuppa. I spent most of my time out doing photography,... More

Best B&B we had ever stay at with my family. We were a group of 6 ; 4 adults and 2 children. The family room on the first floor is simply perfect for families. The hospitality of Jim and Christie was fantastic. It is quite a remote place so you won't find any restaurant close by, but it isn't a... More

We stayed here on our recent tour of the highlands. I would definitely recommend that you include Rowan Cottage if your thinking of Skye. Firstly, the drive to and from Broadford (in good weather) is absolutely spectacular! Secondly the sleep quality is amazing from the memory foam mattress and thirdly the hospitality, friendliness and knowledge of Christine and Jim is... More

It's a long trip to reach the Rowan Cottage, you will drive a single track road with a lot of passing places, crossing loch, hills, finding cows and especially sheeps on your way, but when you will be in Elgol and then in Glasnakille you will see only the sea and hear only nature speaking. A dramatic paradise! Then the... More

Rowan Cottage was the perfect place to finish our visit to Scotland. The location and views are great. Christine and Jim are so friendly and helpful. Nothing seems to be a problem. Christine's home made banana cake and Jim's porridge were perfect. Chris & Rosie.

Rowan Cottage is by far the best B&B we stayed at on Skye. It is a long drive to get there, but what does that matter, when you drive through some of the most stunning views on the island and the views from Rowan Cottage beats everything. Jim (unfortunately we didn´t get to meet Christine) and even the dog Socks... More
