“Ideal cottage to get away from it all.”
In a beautiful location. Like a home from home. The only problem was that we had no mobile signal and very limited internet if any. This is an island problem and does not reflect on the cottage. The owner was about when ever needed and if needed we could have used her phone. The cottage was extremely comfortable, cosy and well equipped. So would definitely recommend the place if you want a relaxing laid back holiday curled up in front of the wood burning stove in the evening and to explore the ...
In a beautiful location. Like a home from home. The only problem was that we had no mobile signal and very limited internet if any. This is an island problem and does not reflect on the cottage. The owner was about when ever needed and if needed we could have used her phone. The cottage was extremely comfortable, cosy and well equipped. So would definitely recommend the place if you want a relaxing laid back holiday curled up in front of the wood burning stove in the evening and to explore the beautiful natural land marks and hills. If the weather is bad there are numerous artists and galleries with amazing local crafts and pictures for sale, not to mention excellent places to eat. We had our dog with us and always managed to find places we could take him with us when eating out.
“I loved this cottage, cosy, traditional and full of character.”
After a day’s local walking I could grab a hot bath or shower and relax by the fire. Snug downstairs, bright and airy upstairs. Felt so comfortable and happy. Looking forward to coming back. Bonus of dog friendly pub 5 mins walk away. Perfect location. Special thanks to the enthusiastic cuckoo.
“This was an excellent week in a lovely cosy cottage in the picturesque hamlet of Flodigarry, which is ideal for walking in the Quiraing and the whole Trotternish Ridge, including the Storr area.”
The location is stunning and close to the sea, and we watched an otter on the shore one morning. The nearest sandy beach is a few kilometres south. We were unsure about booking this house as we saw a grandfather clock in the pictures, but when we were there it was not in operation and mercifully silent. It was a snowy week but the house was cosy and warm with the multi-fuel stove and the electric storage heaters. In common with many rural locations, the internet connection is sporadic and very slow when it does connect. We'd advise everyone to bring warm slippers to spend any time in the kitchen, which is not heated. I should add that I'm 190cm tall (6' 3") and the whole of the first floor ceiling is at least 5cm lower than that. Despite that, we're very glad we booked this cottage, and the owner lives next door and was very helpful and kindly.
“Farmhouse cottage was true to its description and online photos.”
The accommodation was good, kitchen was adequate with enough crockery and cooking implements to meet our needs and a very welcome Welcome Basket containing local beer, sparkling wine and biscuits with milk in the fridge, coffee and tea, which is what you need after hours travelling. The outside space was rustic with large shrubs and a path through to a secret garden alongside a small beck, lovely. Being positioned near to the coast path and within walking distance of Quaraing walks, whilst being just off the 'main' route around the north of Skye, meant options were available to match weather conditions, which being Scotland, were varied. Better known or advertised, places seemed busy with only limited roadside parking mainly, but it was easy to get away and find less well populated spots of equal interest and beauty. Skye life museum well worth a visit, reasonable prices too, Claigan white beach, Faerie Glen and Quaraing also lovely. Morag was very friendly, met her in her shop which is also worth a visit for some memorable artwork and local crafts and is above a bakery and cafe if sustenance is required.
“We very much enjoyed our stay at the Farmhouse Cottage.”
It is well positioned to explore the impressive Trotternish Peninsula, the cottage has it's own character with the art, furniture and very good library for the odd wet day.
