“Great place to stay”
Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

Booked Cuil Lodge after reading great reviews, we were not disappointed. Lovely location for this b & b right on the waters edge. Sue was away, but we were made to feel very welcome by Alex who supplied us with a fantastic breakfast the following day. The room had great views and was comfortable with everything we needed including wi fi, tv and alarm clock. Would we recommend or stay here again? Yes !!!

Located down a small lane, directly on the water opposite Uig, this has to be one our finest experiences ever.

Stopping on the road above to take in the view, and to take pictures, we looked down below on the water front and wondered aloud to ourselves, "wonder if that's the Cuil House?". We were right and glad of it.

We drove up as a delivery was being made, and Susan asked to wait inside. When she finished, we were led to the Trotternish room (all rooms named after Isle of Skye peninsulas). The room was on the second floor with windows facing the water and Uig, and the side into the cove and hills. The views were spectacular. It did not hurt that we had an exceptionally good weather day.

It is a large room with double bed, TV, dresser, sitting area and chairs. Plenty of room to feel at home, and decorated as well, if not nicer, than the rest of the home. WiFi was provided. We could not have been more comfortable, and with good weather and open windows, all the better.

Bathroom was ample, with all necessities available, also a window to allow a refreshing breeze. Adjustable shower for those of varying sizes, and good pressure and hot water to boot.

Our hosts, Alex and Sue, were super. They know what they are doing, and provide good conversation. As posted in reviews before, the breakfast is exceptional. We started with porridge, and yes, I tried the very special McCallan drizzle. Start the day off correctly and it only gets better. Post porridge, I had the smoked haddock with poached eggs, and my wife the kippers and eggs. This was a great change up from the fine breakfasts experienced earlier in our trip.

The views from the location are wonderful. Watching the ferries come and go, the sun set over the water and hills provided many photo opportunities.

Regressing a bit... having arrived a bit earlier in the day of our stay, we inquired as to dining options. We were informed that mainly there were two. We ended up choosing The Ferry Inn, despite several reviews on Tripadvisor of questionable merit. It was fine for us. We started with an ale, served out front on the picnic tables. We then retreated inside for a very decent dinner, and then a few shots of local whisky (Talisker variations). We took one in the small Bistro bar by the window, then the second in the main bar. Service was good, food was good, whisky was better. Caught them at the right time.

Later, we took an evening drive up and around the peninsula to the Kilmuir graveyard, the ancient Soutterain, and the Duntulm castle ruins. The history of Flora MacDonald, buried in the Kilmuir graveyard, was of note to me as I grew up very close to where she moved to North Carolina before she moved back to Scotland. We passed one car in the two plus hours up and back. There is interesting history there and we also walked through sheep pastures to see some of it. The setting is amazing. Take the time to do so. We even had to shoo highland cattle off the single track road once or twice. Picture ops themselves btw.

Another highlight was meeting Isla, the true master of the property. We felt special being allowed to meet her by request, and she obliged by allowing us to rub her !

I can't say enough, but have said too much already. If you want the right spot in, near, or around Uig, this is it.

Highly highly recommend.

Sue & Alex are the most welcoming of hosts and have a beautifully kept guest house. Our room, like the others overlooked the bay and was spacious with a very comfortable bed. We had to control ourselves when ordering breakfast otherwise we would have not got out the door. Both Sue & Alex have great suggestions for places to visit while on the island.

A wonderful overnight stay, where we were made very welcome and even invited to have a taster of some wonderful whiskey. For the owners nothing was too much trouble, they are welcoming and friendly, the rooms are immaculate and comfortable, and the breakfasts out of this world, Would we re-visit - yes definitely and for longer next time!!!

Stopped-over this place a night before leaving the Isle of Skye. Facing to the west, this Guest House enjoyed the sunset. Sue & Alex let us have a comfortable stay and we had a great chat before we left. They had traveled to many places and had much to share with us. We also enjoyed the breakfast there which was fresh and tasty.

We stayed for two nights at Cuil Lodge en route to the Outer Hebrides, partly influenced by the location five minutes drive from the ferry. It was an excellent choice.

The location is wonderful, overlooking the harbour. Also there was reputedly a corncrake in the vicinity but sadly we did not come upon it. The house is attractive and immaculate on a sloping plot. It is full of collectables amassed over the years.

There were quite a few house rules set out, none of which were unreasonable. The bedroom/facilities were perfectly satisfactory and the breakfast was excellent.

We would certainly seek to stay again if visting the north of Ske or travelling on the ferry.
