Previous visitors' comments about The Barn:
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?

From the booking of the holiday (which was straightforward), to the cottage (which I cannot fault) and to the location (the scenery on Skye is amazing) I encountered no problems. It is highly likely that I will use Sykes Cottages again in the future.
Dr Score, Dundee, September 2012
Location, which was ideal for hill and coastal walks. Friendliness of the owner, who made us very welcome, who was always on hand and interested in suggesting areas to visit.
