“The perfect getaway”
Reviewed 8 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

I arrived to two roaring fires..the perfect start to a winter break.

The cottage has everything you need and is located in a perfect location. It is very peaceful on the croft with stunning views and near enough to shops to stock up. Tim and Lily are nearby if you need anything but it is unlikely that you do as they have thought of everything you will need in the cottage. A great place to stay.

Hi Tim & Lilly,

Thank you so much for everything. The house was so beautiful and you guys were so kind to us. We had a great time in the highlands and we hope to come back one time in the future.

Thanks again!

Best,

Erik

“Gorgeous location”
Reviewed 4 December 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Thank you Tim and Lilly for letting us stay in your beautiful home. The house was gorgeous and very comfortable. My teenage kids had the hard choice of deciding which rooms to have. The views were to die for, it's just a pity it rained every day. My two Chihuahua's were also welcomed. We would definitely visit again no matter what the weather, and hopefully next time we might see the pine Martin or maybe even the sun.

“Perfect Holiday Cottage”
Reviewed 18 November 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This is a wonderful house that has everything you could wish for. Fully equipped, fabulous views over Skye and the loch and close to local amenities.
Internet access was good and fast.
We enjoyed several visits to Skye and the trip to Applecross was awesome. It is a good base for touring.. Plenty of good takeaways and restaurants close by.
Lovely garden, we enjoyed the daily visits by the Pine Martin and we also saw deer in the field behind the house. The owners Tim & Lily are very nice and helpful.
The only downside for us was the steep access lane, no problem for cars but some of us were on motorcycles.
However, alternative parking was available at the bottom of the slope.
