    Mrs Phillips ‐ 1 Sep 2021
    " Warm and cosy with everything we could need for our stay. Very comfortable bed too and comfortable livingroom with sky tv. No oven but microwave had gril and oven functions. Very quiet village but good local shop and takeaway from the Hungry Gull was fab too. "
    Paula ‐ 1 Sep 2021
    " Highly recommended! Owners Liz & Ian big thank you. "
    Mr Downey ‐ 1 Aug 2021
    " The views are delightful from every room, including the loo! Our neighbours, a herd of cows or a flock of sheep were very well behaved. The scenery on Skye is spectacular and will remain in our memory for some time. "
    Mr Bloomfield ‐ 1 Jul 2021
    " A lovely place great cottage good weather .A great part of Scotland to visit . "
    Mr Chalmers ‐ 1 Jun 2021
    " However, some small recommendations for consideration would be a little more storage space in bedroom + extra hangers as only 5. Outside some loungers/chairs would have been perfect for sitting to enjoy weather. "
    - Mrs Lawson-brown, September 2021
    "Highly recommended!"
    - Jeff, October 2021
    "There is only a combination microwave as the main oven which limits your cooking but we did cope."
    - Ian, November 2021
    "And the attentiveness of the owner. There was a planned power cut on the Thursday but we were provided with candles and a flask and cooker, just in case. Couldn’t recommend it enough."
