“Great location”
Reviewed July 4, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

First time visit to Skye and we selected Skeabost Wood Cottage because it looked great, was in an ideal location – close to Portree but away from the centre and we thought it would provide an ideal jumping off point to see the ‘island’. We were not disappointed. We travelled around the island, found some great restaurants – several recommended by the cottage owner - and explored a number of castles and gardens. The highlight was perhaps seeing sea eagles one of which grabbed fish from the water a few metres in front of us. The cottage is well very equipped and the owner could not have been more helpful. The weather was ‘kind’, the shellfish and oysters great and the views fantastic.

“Complete relaxation”
Reviewed June 2, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

My fiancé and I booked Skeabost cottage to truly escape the hustle and bustle of city life, and we weren't disappointed. The cottage is only 3 years old, and every detail has been meticulously thought through. It is extremely well insulated and warm, and the log fire makes it lovely and toasty! The rustic touches scattered throughout the property are lovely, and even the cooking utilities are top notch. The cottage is extremely clean and spacious, and the surrounding land and outlook is beautiful. It is quite close to a main road, but we didn't find that to be too much of a distraction, and it makes the cottage very handy to Portree as a result. We highly recommend staying here and would definitely love to return!

“Wonderful place”
Reviewed May 21, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Very well appointed property. Spotlessly clean, well maintained. Situated in its own land with no near neighbours. Large picture windows give excellent views from the kitchen / diner and lounge. It is about a 10 minute drive from Portree.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed May 16, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

A beautiful holiday cottage. Very clean with everything you could need. Great views from all the massive windows. Close to Portree and a great location for the north of the island. Would definitely stay here again

“Perfect cottage in Skye!”
Reviewed March 11, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We stayed at Skeabost Cottage for four nights at the start of March. It was the perfect place for a relaxing holiday, especially when the weather wasn't great. It was also in a good location, about 5 mins drive from Portree.
I'd highly recommend!
