“Stunning views, amazing location and lovely house”
Reviewed August 8, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We stayed in the Cedar in late July and truly enjoyed our stay. It was a very comfortable house in the middle of Portree. From the living room, you have a fantastic view of the harbour (and the occassional seagull stealing fish and chips from unsuspecting tourists). If you take the walk along the Scorrybreac circuit, you'll find great views from the opposite side of the harbour, and can see the Cedar.

It was always a pleasure coming back to the house after a day of hiking or touring Skye. We really liked the whirlpool bath and the sauna. The bed was very comfortable and we had plenty of room to store all our clothes and belongings. Because we did not have a car, the Cedar's location was perfect for us. Close to all the shops and restaurants in Portree and we were able to take some tours and buses from Portree as well.

I would definitely recommend a stay in the Cedar to anyone wishing to visit Skye and would love to come back here myself one day.

“October road trip”

our main destination on a road trip form County Durham to Skye - booked the cedar following trip advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. You can't ask for a better location views of the sea from three rooms just beautiful ! All you could need form a self catering cottage comfy beds and sufficient heating. Initially worried about parking as on the pier but always a space for us. Washer dryer and a sauna! unfortunately whirlpool bath out of action for our stay but didn't really miss it as two showers. I would defo stay again and recommend to family/friends. lovely chippy next door and Chinese / pizza take away local. The only suggestion I would have is for new settees - bit uncomfortable after a while if your having a DVD marathon but on the whole brill stay also fab communications with the owner and hassle free checkin/out

“Brilliant stay a the Cedar”
Reviewed April 25, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The stay we had at the Cedar was brilliant. This is a great base form which to tour the Island.
The view from the cottage was fantastic and to wake up in the morning to those views of the harbour, unbelievable.

3 nights at The Cedars in Portree was the perfect to unwind and get creative. Very well equipped and immaculately clean. We made great use of the sauna which was fantastic after some long scenic walks.
What a great place to wake up to seagulls and the lap of the waves on the quay.
Thank you so much for fitting us in.
We'd love to return.xx
