Fabulous stay at glen osdale beautiful house , clean and comfy . Great views and handy for amenities. Owners are helpful and staff at islands and highlands are always on hand. Would recommend this place x thanks
We love Skye and visit as often as we can. This was our first visit to this cottage but we’ll certainly be returning.
Glen Osdale is comfortable, well equipped, and set in an excellent location. It is relaxing and peaceful but conveniently close to the amenities of the island’s largest settlement. You get a strong sense of history, passing ancient standing stones as you turn into the cottage trackway.
The cottage garden is enclosed by a fence, except for the trackway where there is a cattle grid. This proved no obstacle to some friendly neighbourhood dogs who paid us occasional visits.
Borve is a crofting township so there are plenty of animals close by. We had highland cattle and a horse in the field behind us, sheep in the fields to the front. There's also a good range of birds and other wildlife in the area, so binoculars are handy.
We would be happy to recommend this cottage to others.
Thank you we had a lovely week at this cottage in Skye, really good location for traveling around the south area of the island, Well Equipped, good for Dogs, and plenty of room for a larger family, Kitchen a little dated but serviceable, Depends if you are planning eating out and there are some fantastic places to eat around the area, Would return again, thank you
I could live permanently in this cottage. It is spacious, comfortable, warm and well-equipped. Four of us lived happily in it for a week. It looks lovely from the outside as well as inside. It is one of several cottages dotted along a side-road which make up Borve, on the north side of the main road northwest of Portree. There are splendid views of surrounding fields and hills while the car journey into Portree takes only 10 minutes. Its central position is convenient for exploring the island by car.
I did not want to leave.
My wife and I stayed for a full week and was pleasently surprised on our arrival how fabulous the location and more surprised how spacious the cottage was , it's a lovely family home with everything you need , really enjoyed it here and will defiantly return
Great location in a great setting
This is a very large, family home about 10 minutes from Portree.
The house is well stocked and was warm and welcoming. It was a great location for exploring the island, about 10 mins from Portree (where there is a large supermarket). We were very thankful for the OS Maps in the house which helped us plan our trip (we naively thought google maps would be sufficient!).
When trying to find it, there is a big sign saying "Glen Osdale" (as the house is behind another house) - follow that sign.
Thank you for letting us stay in your home, we loved Skye, loved the house and would definitely come again.
