I booked this for myself husband and teenage son, and our 3 Lhasa Apso's. Plenty of room for us all, clean and cosy, the wood burner is a great extra. The local pub/restaurant is a stones throw away, with very friendly hosts & locals. Lovely views from the lounge area, and well fenced garden.
Had a problem with the toaster which tripped the electrics, but the owner sorted it out very quickly, could not fault them on their speedy response.
This was just what we needed for our stay on Skye.

Such a lovely holiday cottage, fantastic views, lovely position very central for exploring Skye but you do need a car. Plus everything you could ask for in a holiday home, comfy beds, lovely sofas (with a view), and a well equipped kitchen.

“A Fantastic Find”

Glendale is amazing! I travelled with my husband, 16 year old son and our dog Maisie. The weather was "interesting" during the week we were there but it didn't matter as the cottage was so warm and comfortable we soon got dry again.
Glendale is equipped to a very high standard - there is even a bread maker and a slow cooker - but the ipod connection for the stereo really made my day, thank you for that.
At the end of the day it was lovely to sink in to the incredibly comfortable armchairs in the lounge and watch the light fade across the bay.
This is by far the nicest holiday cottage I have stayed in. It literally has everything you could want and the garden is lovely.
The Taigh Ailean Hotel, which you can see from the cottage, is definitely worth a visit. The food is great and everyone is very friendly.

The cottage had everything we could have possibly needed during our weekend in Skye. We had no problems accessing the property, and David was helpful and responded quickly when we had a minor problem with the heating. It was perfectly located for exploring the entire island, and we'd also highly recommend the nearby Taigh Ailean pub, which serves up great food and has a cracking atmosphere. We would definitely love to stay here if we ever returned to Skye!

Cottage was excellent, boys relived their childhood with the Wii, great to have wi-fi. The seating was the best we've ever had in 10 years of holidays in Scotland. Kitchen was really well laid out, patio/decking was very nice. Beds were comfortable, bathrooms were roomy, the whole house was large and spacious.

Cottage was easy to find, but still quite remote, easy travelling to Portree and Broadford (loved the Sia cafe at Broadford), Fresh seafood just 3 miles down the road,

This is a great cottage. It genuinely feels like a home from home -it is cosy, has a well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds and a lovely big sitting room with recliner chairs and a settee to relax in. The decking outside has a table and chairs for breakfast and/or evening dining with views over the large, bird filled garden and further afield to the sea beyond. The sunsets are truly spectacular.

There is a bar within a two minute walk of the property that serves tasty home cooked food.

It is what I would call Central Skye, meaning it is easy to get almost anywhere and has several lovely walks nearby. It is close to Carbost where the Talisker Whisky Tour is located. There is also a lively Inn there that serves good food and has music nights twice weekly.

We did an excellent wildlife tour while there and had other sightings of Golden and Sea Eagles, seals and otters on our many walks and boat trips.

We had an excellent holiday and will definitely be returning! :-)
