  • "The cottage is in need of tlc."

    Cleaning not done very well at all. Dishwasher full on arrival.Garden lawn not cut for ages so our dog couldn't use it. Also experienced nearly all day power cut, caused by the electric key not been entered correctly! To be honnest this is the first time we have been disappointed by a cottage we booked via your website, so hoping this is just a one off...

  • "Although the house met all our expectations."

    The garden proved to be unusable overly long grass absolutely full of Dog poo. We travelled with our dog and selected this property because of the garden. We were forced to take the dog off site where we could clean up after him. Clearly previous visitors had not respected the policy of cleaning up after your pet. I would be very concerned if families with young children stayed at this property.

  • "Had read previous reviews regarding long grass, which we didn’t see as a problem but the previous occupants dog mess in the grass and on the path certainly was."

    Was quite excited to find a tin of shortbread in the living room but turned out the tin just contained the packaging and a few crumbs ( presume also from the previous occupants ). Boiler was not working when we arrived late on Friday night so no hot water for showers after a 12 hour journey. A phone call to the caretaker resulted in instructions how to restart the boiler which I then had to do on a daily basis during our holiday. In general the cottage is very dated and is in need of TLC which is a real shame as the cottage is in a fantastic location with wonderful sea views and has so much potential.

  • "The cottage was lovely and it is in a beautiful location, however, the garden was completely unusable due to the length of the grass which had not been cut for a very long time."

    We contacted the caretaker who explained that their usual gardener was currently unable to work due to a recent operation. Not having use of the garden was quite an annoyance as we had our dog with us. If we'd had young children with us, the state of the garden would have had a much bigger negative impact. The garden is an important feature when we are choosing a cottage. I would have expected to have been informed if it was not usable.

  • "The cottage is located in the most perfect position."

    However, what let it down was the garden. The grass was that long we could not use the space. We booked this property as we were bringing our two dogs and wanted an enclosed space for them. The space was not able to be used. This was very disappointing. We addressed this with the property manager and was told that the gardener had had to have an operation. I feel that the property manager could have completed this task. The decor is tired and could do with updating.

  • "The experience of booking was excellent, very easy and personalised."

    I had bad experiences at a number of other firms but Sykes were excellent all the way through the process. The pre arrival information was very thorough and helpful. The property is located in a wonderfully rural setting overlooking the sea and it would be easy to not see another person or car all day. When we went in May we had 20 hours of sunshine, fabulous sunsets and fields full of orchids and birdsong. Trumpan church is 400metres away, a wonderfully evocative place. A long trip right to the edge of the UK but worth every mile and every penny

  • "We booked this house very late after enjoying the previous week at a cottage further north."

    The house sits at the very end of the Waternish peninsular on Skye and thus is remote is served by narrow but perfectly usable roads. The nearest shop is about 25/30 minutes away in Dunvegan but that was explained in the description so no surprises The nearest supermarket in in Portree which is approaching an hour away The location is staggering with uninterrupted and full panoramic views across the Minch to all the Hebrides IslandS The house has all the facilities needed including a full laundry. It was toasty warm, with plenty of hot water.,the beds were comfortable with nice bedding and all the towels were fluffy and new There was even a spa bath There was a TV and WiFi whilst a bit patch was adequate There were only two of us in residence and we only really used the two downstairs double bedrooms. I fact we rarely ventured upstairs except to admire the view, there were two further bedrooms and a toilet / Shower on the top floor The only negative and it is only marginal is that some of the decor and fixtures in the house are a little tired Notwithstanding the is a lovely place to spend time ,it is spacious and it could easily accommodate a much larger group than we were. This was our first ever visit to Skye and we had some trepidation about it’s infamous weather. We were incredibly lucky in only having one poorish day for the rest of the time we witnessed fair and sometimes excellent weather and witnessed some of the more magnificent scenery this country has offer. Cannot rate Skye highly enough We are no experts but we saw Golden and Sea Eagles from the house. Remarkable If you really want a motoring adventure on Skye try the road to Kylerhea ferry from Bradford and cross the world unique turntable ferry. The road approaching is narrow, steep with dizzying drops and blind corners, it is a bit scary but what an experience The road away from the ferry in the other direction is much more manageable but with astounding views

About the location

DUNVEGAN

Portree 22 miles.

The village of Dunvegan is set in the north west of Skye and contains a mixture of traditional stone and modern houses, along with a selection of shops and hotels. About a mile from the village is Dunvegan Castle, home to the Clan MacLeod, who have continuously occupied the castle since the 13th century. Only four miles away is the famous Three Chimneys Restaurant, a must for all foodies, and just a 10 minute walk away is the very popular Old School Restaurant, also worth a visit. Also in the area are the Cullin Mountains with their fantastic rock forms and pinnacles, which many climbers would put at the top of their list. Other attractions on the Isle are plentiful - visit the Talisker Distillery or Portree, the island’s only town, set around its natural harbour, which boasts an excellent range of shops, hotels and restaurants, and also offers Sea Eagle trips from the pier, which are extremely popular.
