Cosy, well-presented cottage

Trotternish cottage was well presented and decorated. It was warm and cosy on arrival, with the log fire prepared and ready to light. The owner met us at the door and was friendly and helpful. All appliances worked perfectly, and the wood burning stove was fantastic - we stuck on one large log and it kept the house warm all evening with no further coaxing required! Lovely, comfy beds too!! The cottage is in a peaceful location, well situated for visiting Uig, Portree and Dunvegan etc. There is a pretty garden, which would be ideal for a barbecue (provided) in good weather. If you like cats, there are some friendly ones on the farm that will come into the garden and socialise if invited! It should be noted that there is no mobile phone coverage at the house, though there is a phonebox down the street. If you want to get away from the rat race, this is a great place to stay. We had a great time, thanks!

Wonderful

Our first trip to the Isle of Skye and we couldn't have found a more perfect place to stay. Very welcoming hosts Gordon and Margaret who have paid considerable attention to detail to ensure guests enjoy their cottage experience. Loved the woodburner in the evenings, watching the lambs playing outside and the stunning views. If you are thinkng of booking we highly recommend you do. If you want a remote and relaxing location you have found it.

Great

We loved this cottage. Well worth the 8 hour drive. Lovely owners who helped when asked and couldn't do enough for us. The Isle of Syke is a beautiful place with so many stunning places to visit. Gordon let us use some of the land to comfortably walk our dog off lead away from cattle. We appreciated that. A little word of warning the National Lottery funded walk across the river is great BUT please watch out for the 3 cows through the second gate! In summary we had a relaxing week but Gordon please sort out those noisy pipes from the log burner!
