“Wonderful!”
Reviewed September 23, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Stayed here in September with friends, and it was wonderful. We really enjoyed the open plan of the house, wonderful for relaxing after a day exploring the island. The location is perfect, great for accessing the whole island. It's a dream house.

“Just Perfect...”
Reviewed August 24, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Wonderful Skeabost Wood Cottage already has so many great reviews there is not really much I can add about the quality of the accommodation, very high standard and attention to detail of the interior, ideal position on the island etc - all absolutely brilliant.

Anyone interested in architecture/design will really enjoy seeing how well what is actually a relatively modest house has been so carefully planned out to look great, function perfectly and sit really well in it's setting.

For me the best thing about the cottage is the way it brings the outside in. It was lovely to watch the ever changing view across farmland to the mountains and the birds, bats and rabbits just outside the cottage, and be able to stand in the bedroom widow with your head and shoulders outside... a bit like very very posh camping!

Stay here if you can.

“I would live here!”
Reviewed July 23, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This house is amazing. Its larger than it appears in the photos and has been very cleverly designed so that it's a pleasure to be in! I honestly couldn't fault our stay here at all. Apart from being very sad when we had to leave!

I've stayed in quote a few holiday rental cottages and this was by far the best!

“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.
