The Barn is in the most perfect spot for a stay on the Isle of Skye. Amazing surroundings with views of the hills and the sea. The owner had so much knowledge of the area and advice on where to go and what to do. The Barn itself is so cosy, with the wood burning stove to settle down on an evening, and the décor to match. We totally enjoyed our stay here, and we will return and recomend to friends. For two people who love hiking and the peace and tranquility of this island this was the perfect 3 day stay.

The location was fantastic and the owner made us feel very welcome, he is a very kind and friendly soul.

Miss Johnston, Loughborough, March 2014

The cottage was better than expected and the people were friendly and couldn't do enough for us. Great value for money with all fuel - even hand cut peat freely available. The situation of the cottage was ideal and the owner was a wealth of information about Skye.

Mrs Paffard, Bromsgrove, March 2013

The peat fire was lit for our arrival. Local knowledge of the owner and his consideration in recommending walks and wee trips to suit our likes. Quiet location with amenities near enough to be handy without detracting from a peaceful, rural setting; did I mention a roaring peat fire for our arrival on a cool February evening?
