Our stay in Skye was spot on! Not only stunning views and amazing places of interest Andy other half proposed to me at the gorgeous fairy pools! It was all just beautiful!
The smiddy was brilliant Carmen had literally thought of everthing the most equipped lodgings I have stayed in !
The little touches and her warm and extremely friendly welcome was very much appreciated ! We will be back and her and her partner john deserve all the very best in there venture as it's already a great success!
We loved meeting our hosts who provided many local details for plants and birds on the Waternish Pennisula, this well kept secret of the Isle of Skye. We would not hesitate to book again to see the beauty of this area in the various seasons. In addition to the ever changing views of the straits and Hebrides Islands, we truly felt as if we had met kindred spirits in our connection with Carmen and John.
Don't be put off with the fact that there are few reviews for this cottage. There can't be, it is brand new - we were the second guests. It is by far the best equipped cottage we've ever stayed in. Not only a fully equipped and very nicely appointed kitchen, with all the appliances you could want, also a nicely stocked fridge and cupboard with a lot of essentials, such as cereal, milk, butter, herbs and spices etc. etc. and some nice non-essentials such as a couple of Skye beers. The place is spotlessly clean and there are anti-allergy covers on the pillows and duvet - brilliant for asthma patient like me. The location is beautiful with a lovely view over the loch and on clear days to the Uists and Benbecula. On nice warm days the location is high enough to get a bit of wind. In Scotland this can be vital: it means few midges - when down at the water's edge and any sheltered bits you get eaten alive, at the cottage you can still sit outside. Carmen and John are great hosts. After finding out we like wildlife, we found a very comprehensive checklist of birds that can be found on Skye, Latin names, English names and even Dutch names, compiled by John. If we visit Skye again, we will certainly book here.
