“Location is fabulous and totally understated on website.”
Cottage comfortable with everything you require. Soon warms up and is cosy. Owner very supportive and lovely to arrive to milk and bread, and later in the week supplied with fresh eggs.

Lots to do locally as well as travel out further -local ferry is a great experience and provides easy access to Skye. Glenelg Inn should not be missed for dinner.
“Lodge was exactly as described great location skyes is good company to deal with”
“What a fabulous place.”
We loved Roddy's Cottage - it was in the most beautiful setting, and the owners were so welcoming.
“Very friendly owners.”
Very peaceful location
“A lovely relaxing and peacefull cottage,with outstanding views.”
“Roddy's Cottage is a place to " coorie in " and experience the stunning location and life in Glenelg.”
The owners are so kind and welcoming. The views from the cottage over too Skye are truly beautiful. The trip on the wee Glenelg Ferry to Skye is amazing and we loved the two Collies onboard who belong to the Ferry men and bring you sticks! The Otter Hide and RSPB Hide across at Kylerhea are brilliant and Cameron the RSPB Warden from Glenelg is full of information and has a collie too!! Walking and hiking is brilliant in this area. We walked from cottage to Sandaig to see where Gavin Maxwell lived with his otters - very special. The Glenelg Inn is great to meet locals. Staff and owner of Inn were lovely. Adored the log fire! Meals very good too! Local produce. Scottish Band "Tweed" played one evening - good fun. Roddy's Cottage is a cozy cottage with character - a place to truly escape from busy living. The sounds of seabirds, the cuckoo, the sheep and lambs, the water - perfect. The bluebells and wild Iris were so beautiful amongst the Ferns in the woods and sides of the wee single track roads. Plockton and Lochcarron are lovely places to experience in this area too. If you want to slow down and breathe clear beautiful air and enjoy the beauty of Glenelg and views of Skye this is the place to go!! Amazing.
“Very peaceful surroundings,the perfect break,and will go back again.”
“Perfect get away”
The cottage is just on the edge of Glenelg with a great view over the water. It is close to the village for an easy walk but away enough to feel excluded and relaxing. It is laid out much for a family get away, one double with a room of two singles off it and seperate bunk beds in another. Washer and dryer, full kitchen, tv with plenty of family DVDs... It all is included. We liked the fire which we kept going all week. Staying over Christmas there were heavy gales and not much to do outside but inside was very cozy. The friendliness we received was lovely, the welcome pack included bread, milk, and even duck eggs... It was all perfect and we certainly would visit again.
“A good family holiday”
great location, friendly people, well equipped cottage. Internal layout of the cottage was unusual, and the suite looked fine but was smaller than average so was uncomfortable for an evening by the fire. plenty to explore and places to visit for day trips too. Great little ferry!
“Memorable holiday in an idyllic setting”
The situation of Roddy's Cottage far exceeded the expectations raised by the brochure and the website. With its views down the Sound of Sleat and across to Skye it would have been very easy just to sit in the visitor friendly garden enjoying the views and not bothering with all the other features this area has to offer. Our experience was further enhanced by the very warm welcome given to us by the owners Graham and Lilian who were attentive without being in any way intrusive. Their welcome pack was most appreciated and the duck eggs were a whole new breakfast experience! The cottage itself was immaculate and probably the best holiday let we have ever had. We have already booked for next year!
This is the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in. Warm, comfortable, nicely decorated and well equiped; very friendly and considerate owners; a stunningly beautiful location; and a lovely walk along the sea shore to the pretty village and friendly local pub. Perfect! The only hard part was leaving at the end of our holiday.
“Fantastic seclusion by the sea”
Roddys cottage is set in a wonderful location by the sea. You can sit in the window and watch the 4 seasons in one hour ( as happens at any time of the year in the highlands !) with the log fire roaring to keep you toasty warm. You can walk out of the door and explore the coast line watching great wildlife. It is walking distance to the pub which does amazing food and very freindly. The cottage is well equiped with everything you would need whilst staying. The fire is great after a day exploring and otter hunting. With a washer and dryer there are no worries about getting dirty as my 9 year old did every day. We stayed for New year and the locals were really welcoming however i would love to return in the summer to be able to get the ferry over to Skye.
lovely cottage, friendly and helpful owners, fantastic scenary, friendly locals, good pub, good food, really enjoyed our stay in Scotland, had no idea how dramatic the scenary would be and it was wonderful.
“Pure dead brilliant”
Stunning location, quiet peaceful sitiuation ideal to unwind.
“Tranquil and scenic holiday”
Wonderful location, lovely and clean cottage. Owner could not have been more helpful or kind. Roaring fire welcomed us and fresh duck eggs from his farm along with other bits and pieces were waiting for us. Beautiful walks and car journeys to Sheena's tea hut - great experience !! Would highly recommend.
“Great View, Great Break”
Really enjoyed out break, the weather was cold, and the cottage remote but still not far from the main road to Skye and Plockton. The area is beautiful and you just outside the town which gives it a pleasant remoteness, that gives the feeling of solitude and peace. We're glad the village has its very own snow plough to keep the road open. Every morning was a delight to wake up with great views and such peace, the water and hills were beautiful. The open fire heated the house, whilst central heating system means either way you'll stay warm.
“Cosy, tranquil with superb views”
Overall, very welcoming and equipped (would perhaps have liked a little more coal to start off with as we went in October, the shop was shut on Sunday and we arrived late on Saturday). Otherwise, comfy, cosy and well equipped in a wonderfully scenic area. Very reasonably priced with friendly, obliging owners. We were in dire need of a total rest and that's exactly what we got! Nothing to dislike, but we understood the cottage had only recently become available to rent, and perhaps could have done with a bit more local information - nearest doctors, dentists, chemists, vets etc (which thankfully we DIDN'T need) and the nearest garage - which we DID need and struggled to look up in phone book as we weren't sure where anywhere was! Otherwise, we can't wait to go back!

About the location
Shiel Bridge 9 miles.
Just ten miles from the main route to the Isle of Skye, the small coastal village of Glenelg lies on the shores of the Sound of Sleat, surrounded by scenery deemed magnificent even by West Highland standards. The glen has preserved its unspoilt beauty and sense of isolation, yet remains within easy reach of the more well-known centres of attraction in the area. Overlooking the Isle of Skye, it is situated on the route once used by drovers from Skye to get their cattle to the mainland, crossing over the narrow Kyle Rhea straits. A couple of miles from the village on the Arnisdale road you will find Sandaig bay, named "Camusfearna" by Gavin Maxwell in his novel Ring of Bright Water, and where there is a cairn for his beloved otter Edal. Glenelg also has the best preserved Pictish Brochs on mainland Scotland. The ruins of Bernera Barracks, an 18th Century garrison for English government troops, still stand next to the village.
