Well located. Easy walking distance to a great lcoal pub which provided home made good food and real ale.
Beautiful views over the loch and views of the Cullin mountains.
Easy reach of the Talisker distillary.
In good weather can sit on a peaceful balcony to admire the views.

“Great Experience”
Reviewed April 13, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We would definitely recommend this cottage. very clean and spacious and perfectly situated to explore the Island. ample supply of towels, logs for the wood burner and it made a change to have the basics supplied in abundance ie soap, washing up liquid etc.
The location was pretty perfect for exploring the island and also travelling the half hour to Portree to stock up on the big things, however a very well stocked little shop in Carbost ( close to the distillery) only a 5 minute drive
Local pub was 2 minutes walk and the food and atmosphere was good.
Great that we could take our mini schnauzers, cottage is dog friendly but absolutely no hint that others with dogs had stayed there - it was spotless
There were 5 of us - 2 adults and 3 grown up kids and there was ample room for us all
We'll be back

A very comfortable stay with every amenity you could ask for. A real bonus, in my opinion some of the best food on the island only 250m walk away in the Taigh Ailean Hotel. Will book again.

A lovely cottage, very well equipped and comfortable for our needs. Beautiful views from the decking and a wonderful woodland adventure at the bottom of the garden for the kids

“Well located and comfortable cottage”
Reviewed September 22, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We enjoyed our week in this cottage, Was just husband and myself and two dogs so very spacious for us. We appreciated the wine and milk that were waiting for us on arrival. We had brought all our food with us so was good to have plenty of storage space and also the fridge freezer. I used the breadmaker a couple of times which was handy to have.
The lounge suite was very comfortable and we were very taken with the the double bed which seemed much more comfy than ours at home so we had an inspection of the make of mattress and will probably be investing in one ourselves in due course. The wifi was good and reliable throughout our stay.
The garden and view from the same was lovely. The deck we sat out on a couple of times but weather and midges made it challenging on occasion, Smidge is definitely useful on that score and the weather is beyond anyone's control. It was great to be able to let the dogs out in the garden and our Border Terrier particularly fond of watching the cows across the way in the field opposite.
We did a couple of walks from the cottage as per the info folder in the cottage, the walk to Fiscavaig Beach was particularly enjoyable, probably helped by it being a beautiful day and the views were lovely.
We went for a meal on our last evening at the hotel we could walk to from the cottage and the food was excellent with a lovely view over the loch.
So all in all we were very pleased with our stay and would recommend.

“Just what the Doctor ordered!”
Reviewed July 14, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Glendale Cottage offers everything you could ask for and more. It was a great base to start my first venture to the islands of Scotland. If your looking for piece and quiet to unwind and destress this is the place for you. The single track roads leading to the property take a little getting used to but the scenes over Loch Harport are worth every second (but keep your eyes on the road if you can!). This time it was just myself and my Flat-coated Retriever but it would comfortable accommodate a family of 4-5. For me the evening highlight after a long day of walking has to have been sitting down in front of the open log fire with a little whisky and looking out of the large bay windows over the loch!

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.
