    It was exactly as pictured. The owners obviously take their time to look after it. It was comfortable and warm - the heaters are excellent. A few small points as a suggestion for improvement - the bed springs underpinning the double bed are extremely old and noisy - not great for sharing a bed with a restless sleeper. The glasses could be updated - nothing fancy but just a box load from Tesco etc would give more choice. We also bought a small DVD player while we were there which is usually included as the weather was terrible and the TV channels are limited. It cost less than £40 including the HDMI cables which would help families with children or couples when the weather is so bad you want to stay indoors. Overall we loved our stay and hope the small points help others.

About the location


Isle of Skye 1 mile; Inverness 80 miles.

A bustling town in Wester Ross, Kyle of Lochalsh lies on the shores of Lochalsh and is best known as the gateway to the Isle of Skye. It offers a range of shops, hotels and restaurants and boasts a busy harbour that plays host to a variety of cargo, fishing and occasional passenger vessels. Nearby, is Eilean Donan Castle, one of Scotland's most famous and popular sights, perched at the end of a stone causeway on the shores of Loch Duich. Further south is the Glenelg peninsula - a tranquil backwater which is beautiful, remote and relatively undiscovered. Travelling north from Kyle is the picturesque village of Plockton, famous for its palm trees, cottages grouped around a yacht-filled bay and Highland cattle which wander the streets! Finally, cross the Skye Bridge to Skye itself and explore all that the “mystical isle” has to offer.
