We stayed for one night in June during our visit to Skye. Upon arriving, we were initially blown away by the beauty of the location. The house sits on the banks of a loch where on a clear day you get a great view of some of the nearby mountains. We were promptly shown in by the proprietors who walked us through the common sitting room and then upstairs to our room. We had opted for the family room which gave us plenty of space and a superb view of the surrounding area. The bed was very comfortable and we slept very well.
The proprietors were both very friendly giving us great suggestions for dinner and scenic routes of the island. The breakfast was very good with cold items left out to be taken as desired and hot items cooked to order. We're not big breakfast eaters so only sampled the toast and porridge, but were very satisfied with both.
One of the best features of the property was the balcony facing the loch. It was a little chilly during our visit, so we didn't make too much use of it, but we could definitely imagine how lovely it would be to spend some time out there on a warmer day. Also the sitting room is very inviting and is a nice place to spend some time before heading out to further explore the area.
We really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Skye.
