Loch Nevis is in a stunning location on the hillside above Ardvasar, only 5 mins from the ferry terminal at Armadale, which is very handy when you've travelled a long distance to reach Skye. We've stayed at Calligary Cottages on a number of occasions, previously in Loch Hourn, and this time in Loch Nevis.
The views from both cottages and gardens are stunning and this time when we visited we had a couple of sunny days, which allowed us to eat out in the garden, and enjoy the scenery from outside for a change. (It's not called the Misty Isle for nothing)
The cottages are cosy, comfortable, very clean - and very well cared for by the friendly and helpful owner, Janette. You can walk down to the hotel at Ardvasar for a meal (and possibly a glass of wine to help you cope with the steep climb back up the hill to the cottage afterwards) and there is a community store just a couple of miles away in Armadale which stocks the basics.
There are always lots of events on at the Gaelic College (Sabhal Mòr Ostaig), which again is only a few miles away if you are looking for something to do in the evenings after you've been out walking for the day.
We always enjoy our time here and will be back again as soon as we can.
Coming from Skye originally this cottage was Ideal for my family to return to skye to catch up with friends. This was our second visit to Calligary cottages. The location is perfect sitting on a hill with wonderful views over to Mallaig. The cottage is very well equipped with everything you need for self catering and the owner Janette is only a phone call away if needed. There is a small hotel within walking distance which does food and the wee bar is great place to meet locals. We will definitely be back.
Loved the cottage, well equipped, cosy with outstanding views all around. Janette was very helpful and welcoming. A good base for Sleat and south Skye. Pier Cafe sold good coffee, service at the local hotel not great. Very handy to go back via Mallaig ferry, cut a lot off our journey, would definitely go back.
Was part of same party as the previous reviewer, but in the other cottage - rent them both, as we did, and perfect for a family holiday with grumpy grandparents in the smaller cottage. We were just a load of grumpy old men, who enjoyed the location, close access to pub (with short but steep return trip), Mallaig ferry just round the corner, and surprisingly fast road to Broadford - and of course the walking. Views of mainland always stunning (we were a bit spoiled by extraordiarily good weather), cottages comfortable and well-equipped.
Wake up to magnificent panoramic views and relax in the evening with radiant sunsets and all from the comfort of a well appointed cottage.
A memorable location for a weeks walking in Skye. A good place to relax with excellent equipment and clean comfortable rooms. It's garden provided a further relaxing venue.
