“Calming charming Calath”
Reviewed October 2, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Calath is a beautiful house not far from Carbost. It overlooks Loch Harport where we saw porpoise regularly from the house. Calth was very comfortable and spacious and the views of the Cuillins from the sitting room were stunning.

We would definitely stay here again

“The most wonderful view of the Cuillins”
Reviewed June 13, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

If you want the Cuillins as your focus as your visit to Skye then this would be a superb place to rent. A huge picture window frames the Cuillins perfectly, the 'modern croft' is an amazing building with comfy beds and furniture, and you'd be close to Glenbrittle for access.
If you want to explore the whole island Carbost is a pretty central place to be too. And should the weather close in then there's always the great wi-fi, tv and board games to keep you entertained. Be aware though that this is the sort of place that could spoil you for other properties!

“Magical retreat”
Reviewed June 9, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We have just finished our first ever 6 day visit to the Isle of Skye and we're so relieved to have been blest with wonderful weather in the most enabling us to explore as much as possible. Not only is this a great location but so central to ensuring that we could make the most of our short visit to explore all the extremes of the area
The sheep certainly kept us entertained with their forays into the garden...

“Perfect location ”
Reviewed April 9, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

I have visited Skye at Easter for nearly 40 years now and Calath is easily the best place I have stayed. It's perfect as a base for parties that want to walk or climb up the Cuillin. The house is warm (underfloor heating) and very comfortable. The living room has a massive picture window affording a wonderful view across to the Black Cuillin, looking into the vast Coire na Creiche. There is ample room for six adults with attendant walking and climbing equipment. The kitchen is well equipped and self caterers will have no trouble cooking for themselves. For lazy folk like myself, there is the Old Inn in Carbost plus the Oyster Shed (lunchtime only), even closer on the road down into Carbost. In the direction of Portnalong, there is also Taigh Ailean which does pretty good food as well.
All in all Calath presses all the right buttons and we shall certainly be returning next year.

“An idillic location in a stunning house, we will be back!”
Reviewed November 16, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We had a short stay in Calath in early November. It's location with unrivalled views of the Cuillin Mountain range and Loch Harport showed off the very best of the Isle of Skye. Alan was very accommodating and was able to rent us the house for a few nights (next time it will definitely be longer!). He responded quickly with any queries we had about the house. The house is fully equipped with all that you would need to make the stay a perfect retreat from the hustle bustle of city life. We were treated to marvellous skies from the huge window in the living room, that was more like a cinema screen. Skye is a magical place with so much to do and see and Calath provided the perfect base for a group of friends from Tasmania, New Zealand and Ireland.
