“Beautiful house, well equipped, exceptional location and hospitality”
Reviewed May 29, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I researched many self catering properties on Skye and none came even close to Owlswood for quality and style at a very reasonable price. The property is well presented throughout with logs included for the feature log burner during our stay, a beautiful patio area, modern and tasteful rooms and fantastic tropical rain showers! Owlswood is situated between 2 pubs which is a great call given the general lack of pubs on Skye. The owners Karen and Phil are brilliant; very welcoming and helpful should you require anything.

There is a lovely feature wooden child's play area close by should you have young children, with even a zip wire for us adults to have a sneaky turn on!! Owlswood is also situated within a 2 minute walk to the Edinbane Inn which is a fantastic pub with lovely food and live music on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.

Would we return? Most definitely!!!! We have been to Skye and Mull on numerous holidays and this is by far the best self catering property that we have stayed.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed April 21, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Stayed in this house for a week with partner and two young girls. Everything was spot on. Property is either newly built or newly renovated, everything was new and finished to a very high standard.

The outside of the property is grand and very appealing, ample parking for bigger groups, sun trap seating areas on both east and west sides, good for morning or afternoon sun, two pubs a stones throw from the house, bus stop next to property is good for getting to Dunvegan and Portree, excellent kids play park 100m away.

The inside of the property is really nice, heating system very good, beds and furniture really comfortable, nice big showers, kitchen well equipped wi-fi is really good despite owner claiming it was just 'OK', no vodafone reception in house, one bar in car park, three bars in a lay-by a few hundred metres away, not sure about other networks, believe orange is good.

The location is great. We had never visited Skye before and I had looked at several properties in different locations, having driven the length and breadth of the island I was glad that I chose Edinbane, access is great to most of the island and it doesn't feel like you're out at the end of a road. Many other areas I'd looked at are in fact out on a limb and wouldn't have suited us nearly as well. It only took about 45 minutes to drive down to the Cuillins so the south of the island is by no means a big trek.

The owners were great, very helpful and friendly. We will definitely return to this house in the future. Can't recommend it enough.

The property is first class and has every-amenity needed for a five star stay whilst maintaining a homely feel, The location is fabulous likewise so are the host's. We asked where we could buy seafood locally and much to our surprise were presented with scallops no more than ten minutes old having just been harvested rom the local Loch. Cannot think of a better all round break that we have had. Once again thank you
