This cottage was lovely -- a perfect retreat and launching place for our explorations of Skye. Loved hanging the clothes out to dry -- everything smelled so fresh. We didn't lack for anything here.

“Wonderful Modern Self Catering”
Reviewed April 5, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We booked Hartaval for three nights and were delighted with a modern and well-appointed cottage about halfway between the Quiraing and the Old Man of Storr.

The cottage is roomy with two bedrooms that will easily sleep five. There is a good kitchen, a washer with clothes line outside (e warned, on Skye on a windy day your knickers could end up in Ullapool), and the bathrooms provide modern facilities with oodles of hot water.

Things to bear in mind are the remoteness of the site. Get your groceries before you head up from Portree. If you plan ongoing out for food, be aware there are limited options and none of them are nearby.

All in all a perfect stay.

“perfect”
Reviewed November 21, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

i love it here. my family loves it here too. we should have stayed longer. the view from the cottage was magnificent. the sky, the sea, the clouds, the birds, the sheep, and the weather too was terrific. it was a fine autumn day and we visited quiraing, old man storr, kilt, and just driving around the isle.

our host was accommodating and the cottage is simply lovely. will definitely come again for next visit.

“Very pleased with the property”
Reviewed October 23, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Hartaval Cottage gave us the perfect support for our 5 days in the Isle of Skye. The owners live in a B & B just a few metres away and are always there to help. Everything looked brand new and tasteful. The house is semi detached meaning that if you have a large group of people you can rent both houses. Couldn't recommend more.

“Exceptional”
Reviewed June 26, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Hartaval cottage has been home to us for the last 7 days. We have so enjoyed this delightful peaceful accommodation. The property is absolutely spotless and very high spec. Everything that you could hope for.
The cottage is in a great location on the main road between Portree and Staffin looking out to sea across a small field of sheep and lambs. You are very close to a number of Isle of Skye natural attractions The Quiaring and The Old Man of Stor. Would highly recommend !!

Fantastic cottage, spacious and clean. New build. Can see sea from cottage. Weather was a bit so-so, but ideal for spending indoors. DVDs provided if, TV not to your fancy.
