Absolutely fabulous. Excellent location. Loved every moment. Beds are like falling into a cloud after hiking or sightseeing. Although sitting in the garden is also relaxing. The surprise welcome box was a welcome treat.

Management response:

Hi Gill - thanks so much for your lovely review. We glad you enjoyed the cottage as much as we do!

It's difficult to write a review that captures the cottage's perfection fully. Myself, my husband and our son stayed for what we can only describe as an idyllic week. The cottage's location is perfect. It's right on the shore, so plenty of time was spent exploring on the beach, with child and dog having great fun splashing and running around....

About the neighborhood
Broadford is a great base for visiting the whole of Skye and Lochalsh and is Skye's largest settlement after Portree. There are a range of great restaurants to choose from, a well stocked Co-Op and other shops to investigate. It is also a great base to explore as you can visit every part of Skye and back over the bridge to Lochalsh in day trips from the cottage. If you are a keen hillwalker or munro bagger you can head over to Kintail, the Sheil Ridge or of course the Cuillins; if you prefer beaches wonderful Ashaig beach with its coral island and fossils is a couple of miles down the road; for gardens you can visit Clan Donald at Armadale, Dunvegan or Attadale near Lochcarron and you are spoilt for choice with boat trips, from Kyle of Lochalsh, Armadale and Elgol. For fabulous food an... more
