“Amazing views and comfortable cottage”
Reviewed August 18, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We loved our stay at the WIld Orchid Cottage. The views from the sitting room over the loch and over the cliffs on the other side of the bay are simply amazing, we spend a good time simply sitting on the sofa and gawking at the view (if we weren't out and about walking around in the beautiful landscape. Really recommend a walk to Oronsay island).

The cottage is located in between a few houses but still feels very secluded (in a good way) and tranquil. The ping pong table was good fun for our kids.
The owner was very helpful when one of my suitcases didn't arrive at the airport, responding quickly by mail on my inquiries where to get replacement walking shoes. The cottage itself is decorated and furnished in a practical way, and all amenities to make our holiday an easy stay (with as little time as possible spend on household chores!) were .
there.

Bonus: the binoculars in the sitting room to see even more of the view!
Bonus 2: a television with HDMI support so we could stream from our laptop
Bonus 3: the cute rabbits scurrying in the garden nibbling on the grass

“Cosy, warm, spacious...perfect”
Reviewed December 7, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Traveled with 3 kids and 2 border collies. Found cottage no problem with helpful directions from the manager/owner. When we entered the cottage it was spotless, and the layout of the cottage was perfect for us. Location was great, as all the sights seemed to be no more than a half hour away, and when we came back from the long hikes and cold wet weather, there was a wood burning stove to warm up the lounge. The kids loved playing board games and watching movies by the fire, and the dogs loved the fenced in garden. I fell in love with this cottage, along with Skye and it's unique and wild beauty. We made so many memories on this trip, it is unforgettable. I am already thought planning our next trip out there. As far as complaints, we have none, I even asked my wife...it was perfect.

Thank you for your lovely review. The weather can be rather wild at times in winter but it doesn't seem to stop people getting out and about and enjoying the Island. We're glad the Cottage worked out so well for you and kept you cosy!

“Mr”
Reviewed November 15, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Excellent well equipped cottage with more than ample room and amenities.
Although it's set within a small gathering of houses it was well within all Skye has to offer.
The weather was quite bad the first night we arrived which cut the TV signal but there were plenty of games, dvd's and books etc to keep us occupied.
With visiting in November the weather wasn't the best but the heating was excellent with the added bonus of the log burning stove.
The cottage is alot bigger than it looks in the photos.
The dogs loved the garden, especially the smell of rabbits.
The neighbours were nice and traffic (which there wasn't alot of) was slow and cautious which was good for walking the dogs.

I would recommend the cottage and plan on going back to Skye next year in the summer.

Really glad you enjoyed your stay at Wild Orchid Cottage, in spite of the rather challenging weather including Hurricane Abigail! We replaced the satellite TV cable this week, so it should not be so temperamental during the next hurricane! Hope to see you back at Wild Orchid Cottage again in the future!

“Perfect Retreat”
Reviewed October 2, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Directions given to find the cottage were very helpful. Location is remote but close to the main road and directions to local villages which are not too far. Cottage was clean and welcoming, even my dogs had a treat waiting for them. Maybe some leaflets of local attractions would be helpful but you get free wifi so was able to find things online. My dogs loved the garden and you get gorgeous views.

Glad to hear you and your dogs enjoyed your break at the Cottage. Sorry you missed the information box in the bookcase - it is full of tourist information leaflets and walking guides etc. Maybe it needs to be labelled more clearly - I'll take a look at that and sort it out!

“A beautiful place to stay!”
Reviewed June 12, 2015 for a stay in June 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed in Wild Orchid cottage for a week. There was a welcome bottle of wine to greet us. The owner has put a great deal of thought into making the cottage into a perfect place to stay (and succeeded!). The cottage was far roomier than appears in the photograph. Beds were very comfortable! The kitchen was well equipped for self catering + a small utility room too. The log burner and central heating were very efficient.
The views are simply wonderful, the garden pretty and secure for children and dogs. The table tennis 'shed' was a great space to hang out!
We loved reading the cottage's diary and where someone had a suggestion for improvements we were impressed by both the response by the owner and the fact comments were acted upon.
In short we can only praise this property, so much so I have rebooked for longer next year!
