We could not ask for a better place to stay - Joyce and Brian (and Toby the Cat) were a pleasure to meet. The accommodation has everything you need. If you want to see seals look no further than the view from the apartment - they just keep bobbing up and down!. You will also see the odd bird of prey too from the windows. The accommodation was clean and perfect for our needs - we managed to see most of the main tourist places from here - we ventured south too to Elgol which is highly recommended. Sea Eagles were also seen from the MV Stardust (on our 2nd attempt!). I wouldn't hesitate staying here again in the future - it was excellent - many thanks to Joyce and Brian.

“Cosy apartment, beautiful view”
Reviewed April 4, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

I stayed in the apartment with a friend for a long weekend on Skye (3 nights). This apartment was very cosy, with an amazing view of the loch from the kitchen/lounge area. We saw loads of seals in the loch throughout our weekend - which added to the environment. It was incredibly peaceful!

The beds are comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped. The apartment was comfortably warm when we entered - which was great. The rooms are a good size (not large, but not too small). With only two people it was great, however I reckon that it may get a bit more crowded with four people.

One thing I didn't realise was that the kitchen/lounge/dining room are all joined together - not necessarily a bad thing.

The couple looking after the apartment for the owners were very friendly.

Overall, we had a great and relaxing stay on the Isle of Skye and we would both return!

The accomdation is great with the views across the loch the owners were friendly and helpful, we had a great time fishing off the rocky headland and saw dolphins and seals a real treat to see nature at its best.Our senses were used to the full taking in all we saw including beautiful starry nights and even the northern lights, would highly recommend to anyone.

“Perfect accommodation in a beautiful location”
Reviewed May 14, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

My niece and I stayed in the apartment for a week while holidaying on Skye. The accommodation is very comfortable, fully equipped, with beatiful views of the loch and conveniently located for visiting different parts of the island and beyond. The owners are very helpful and friendly, as is Toby the cat. Will definitely be back Linda
