Wow! What a place to stay. There was nothing at all I would change about Gail's gorgeous little croft. From waking up every morning to the seals, Herons and Oyster catchers to chilling in the Grill Kota at night. It's only 10 mins from Portree by car so even though you feel like your in the middle of nowhere you can get to the shops easily enough. We were lucky with the weather for the...

Wonderful croft in a breathtaking position with views to die for. Although small it is perfectly presented with all you could wish for, warm and cosy even in the coldest weather. Within easy reach of supermarket and local amenities. Great walking and sightseeing close by.

Everything that you need for a relaxing time away from the hustle & bustle of every day life, a very well equipped cottage with all mod cons that you require to knock up a meal for 2! The wild life that you see each day from the windows is truly amazing as a family of seals use to swim past most days, the amount of different feathered friends were also amazing to see. The location...

Couch and seating in lounge area lacking in proper support, not good for people who have back problems. Fortunately there were 2 garden chairs stored in the garage we could use and we brought these into the property for our use. Had these not been there, it would have been dining chairs or the floor! Hair dryer smoked during use - discontinued using, and a note left for the caretaker/owner

Never been to Skye, but we will definitely return and we would not look at staying anywhere else. The croft is a lovely little haven, with everything we needed. The whole pace is spotless, and there were some lovely welcoming touches. Enjoyed an evening in the Kota hut, and spent lots of time watching the birds. From the patio we could see lots of wildlife, curlews, herons, cormorants etc. Seals visited most days and we...
