“Perfect retreat / base to explore Skye”
Reviewed July 5, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The Studio is spot on. There's everything you need and more. Fully fitted kitchen - plus washing machine - an awesome shower in the bathroom and the comfiest bed ever with a stonking view of the sea.

Joyce has also supplied the Studio with landranger OS maps of Skye too and there's really good wifi. We found there to be O2 signal too.

It's a really good base from exploring Skye. About 15 mins by car to Portree (and the big Co-op), about 10 to Edibane and 15/20 to Dunvegan.

There's an identical studio next door, but the layout is a reflection and another above the owners house, so you're not completely isolated. But we made friends with the couple staying next door, so definitely not complaining. Pictures look like the place too, so there was nothing to disappoint. There was also a cracking sunset on the final night.

“Very special”
Reviewed July 3, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This was our first trip to Skye and on the basis of our stay in this accommodation it is very unlikely to be our last.
We are timeshare owners and normally take a 1 or 2 bedroomed property for our holidays so we were not sure if a studio would suit us - how wrong we were as this one is so brilliantly designed.
We were also unsure that Knott would be a good location but it is very central making it easy to get to so many places of interest.
Thank you so much Joyce and Brian for letting us share your very special part of Skye - we are sure we will be back! David & Pat

“Fantastic stay in Skye”
Reviewed June 1, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The studio was fantastic. It was clean and very comfortable. The views from the window were stunning. It was well placed for Portree and Dunvegan. We would book it again in a minute.

“Perfect bolthole with genuinely accommodating hosts Brian & Joyce”
Reviewed June 1, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We actually stayed in studio 2 which is right next door to the one shown - they are pretty much identical although there is a small tree outside the window of #2 but it doesn't spoil the view (a small chainsaw would solve it easily!)
We stayed for a week and used the studio as our base, the owners Brian (my girlfriend called him Terry all week but he was too polite to correct her) and Joyce couldn't have been more helpful - Joyce has a well stocked herb garden and was only too happy to let us have a few key ingredients as we cooked for ourselves most nights. On that point the studios are well equipped with a mini dishwasher and everything else needed to get along. We'll be back that's for sure and perhaps here is a good place to thank Joyce & Terry, sorry Brian for a great week.

“Tranquility”
Reviewed May 15, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Picturesque and peaceful, the second and final leg of our journey ending on Skye and accompanied by true brutal Scottish weather! Beautiful place to stay and be for anybody looking to re-connect with nature, relax and just be...
Thanks for having us! ;-)

“Excellent apartment with fantastic viewscand ideally located for exploring the north of the island”
Reviewed April 14, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We stayed in march 2015 and was our first visit to skye and will certainly return. The scenery and wildlife were better than we could have expected and would throughly recommend dunvegon castle and coral beach. The apartment at knott was only 20 min drive from portree and was a warm and welcoming retreat after a day walking in the snow and rain. A highlight of our week was having breakfast whilst watching seals in the loch. The owners, joyce and brian, were friendly and helpful and we look forward to seeing them again.
