“Perfect little cottage, beautiful location”
Reviewed April 10, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

A really beautifully appointed cottage for two, cosy, very clean, comfortable and well equipped with high quality linen/towels. Fresh flowers and a complimentary soap made locally (buy from the Skye Soap Co. in Portree or online) were a nice touch. No mobile phone signal and rather slow wifi, but that was expected and it was actually good to be 'off-grid' for a few days!
Great views and lovely walks directly from the property, we saw eagles and deer. Cottage is approx 15 mins from Portree which has a supermarket and plenty of eating places, good fish and chips from the shop near the harbour.
Drive the road that goes around the top of the island for a very scenic trip.
We had a lovely stay, Jeannie made us feel very welcome and we hope to be able to return in the future.

Wonderful winter retreat. So cosy and perfect for two. Very comfortable bed. Amazing views. The homemade mince pies and Christmas tree were lovely festive touches. On a clear day do the 3 hr walk at the Quaraing.....stunning. Thanks Jeannie for making it one of my very best trips to my favourite island.

A Rolls-Royce experience for a Mini price! There was nothing not to like. The apartment was spacious, had all the utensils needed for cooking, and great views. The upstairs bedroom was comfortable, and the bathroom well equipped.

“BEAUTIFULLY DESIGNED LITTLE HOME IN A CONVENIENT AND IDYLLIC SETTING”
Reviewed August 29, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Down a quiet, one track road sprinkled with lovely flowers on either side, sits the expanded crofter's cottage called Half of Three. The owner, Jean, added a handsome addition onto her home to accommodate guests or visiting family members. It has its own entrance and inside feels totally private. It is furnished with comfy, country-style furniture in soft shades of blue, beige and white. Downstairs is the decent-sized living room, dining area, and a handsome, well-appointed kitchen. The bookcase in the living is stocked with tons of interesting books, DVDs, games, etc. Upstairs is the bedroom with a very comfortable double bed (maybe a bit short for a tall couple, but perfect for us) and a modern bathroom. The shower was lovely! From the upstairs skylight windows you can see pastureland for miles. Jean has provided fluffy white towels, there's a heated towel bar, and little bars of lemon grass glycerine soap made in Portree. It appears like no expense was spared when building this lovely space.

Jean is the perfect host. She was so warm, helpful, and generous with advice about the area, but never hovering. What she has created is a perfect respite to return to at the end of a full day of touring this remarkable Isle. We highly recommend Half of Three!!

“if you are looking for a remote place to stay...”
Reviewed August 26, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

this rental was quite clean and the bed was very comfortable. the property owner has a well kept little garden and a patio for guests' use. there is a creek/river nearby (not seen but heard from the property) so if you like the sound of water, it's nice.

the location is remote, and if you are looking for remote, like a writer's hideaway, it would make you very happy. if not, you'd be very disappointed as there is no cellphone reception and the wifi is rather weak. at night it gets seriously quiet - which may be positive or negative depending on the guest.

“Lovely cottage”

person found this review helpful

We stayed here for three nights and it was so lovely. It is in a rural area with lovely surroundings. The cottage is fully equipped with everything you need and very clean.
One thing we didn't know before though was that the cottage is attached to the landlords home. Regardless, it was a lovely stay and would recommend to anyone staying in Skye.
