  • "What a wonderful cottage equalled only by the hosts, Maggie and Roddy, who manage to be both welcoming and unobtrusive all at the same time."

    We found the cottage to be one of the most well equipped and well furnished that we've stayed in. It is ideally situated to explore the north and west of the island and with views of the nearby sea loch to admire when you wake up staying here felt a real privilege!

  • "From the moment we arrived at Falls Cottage."

    ...everything was perfect, and this includes the gorgeous homemade scones and rock cakes. Falls Cottage is ideally located to see all the sights in Skye, its also comfortable, cosy, has everything you would need during uiur stay and above all is spotlessly clean. The owners, Maggie & Robbie, live next door. However, you don't see them unless you knock on their door but I'd recommend you do as they are lovely people. We had a fantastic week on Skye and wholeheartedly recommend Falls Cottage.

  • "An outstanding property, very well equipped, comfortable and the super king size beds were amazing."

    Maggie and Roddy are a delightful couple - could not have been more hospitable and friendly - even provided us with delicious home baked scones, rock buns and shortbread. Peaceful, relaxing and trouble free holiday, could not have been better - and great value as well. Thank you so much, we hope to be back - take good care of each other and stay bright. Highly recommended - well done.

    Welcome pack, including home baked good was amazing. Owners live next door. Super friendly, but give you privacy. The house was spotless and we would love to stay again.

  • "We had a lovely time in Skye, thank you for the hospitality."

    The welcome gifts and homebaking were gratefully received. The cottage catered for all including our dog and easily accommodated four people. The whole cottage was very comfortable and a good night's sleep was had after a busy day exploring the island. The cottage has everything you need to live comfortably for a week. There is so much to see and do with so many hidden gems you could spend a fortnight and still run out of time to see everything you would like. We'll just have to come back again. The cottage is well situated for exploring Trotternish and Waternish in particular. If you enjoy walking, hiking or hill walking then it's ideal. Good early morning dog walk in the forest opposite.

  • "Absolutely brilliant!"

    ! When I booked, the photos don't do it justice, views to die for. Hosts met us at the door with 'homebakes' and nothing was too much trouble. Holiday let was built to a VERY high spec and every need catered for. Cannot think of one negative. My advice - book it!! Don't even think of scrolling through all the holiday let's on Skye because you won't find better and if you do when you do try to book it, it will be full!!! A little oasis which I should keep to myself but it fabulous and the owners hard work should be shared. Thank you for a lovely time - we will definitely be back

  • "It was like coming home."

    The warm welcome from Maggie and Roddy was matched by our delight in seeing them again for our second 'Falls Cottage Spectacular'. We were not let down. There were also delicious treats waiting for us to help us start enjoying and relaxing from the start and the beautiful and immaculate Cottage. The weather was 'cracking the hedges' and so a very different experience from last October. If you want an excellent location for the Isle of Skye with comfort to the highest level thrown in, look no further than this wonderful Cottage.

    Maggie and Roddy were most welcoming with lots of extras and delicious cakes. They even provided a week of hot sunny weather, so we could make use of the outside seating area. The sunsets seen from the comfort of the sofas were superb, and the stars at night amazingly bright. thank you

The home baking was a lovely surprise after a long day out . The outdoor seating area is a lovely place to enjoy the views and we did as the weather was glorious all week !.The cottage was ideally placed for exploring theTrotternish Duirinish and Waternish peninsulas with ease and also the Isle Of Oronsay .Hopefully we will be back one day

    The property is lovely and in a great location to get around Skye. It was lovely to come back to Falls cottage at the end of a busy day and Maggie and Roddy were great hosts who made us feel very welcome. The facilities in the cottage are superb if you want to spend time relaxing there and great options for eating nearby in Uig as an alternative. We highly recommend Falls Cottage and Skye for a perfect break. We will definitely be back.

    A high-spec, warm and comfortable cottage which comes with incredible views, and is a short drive away from Portree and all the sights of the Trotternish Peninsula. The bedrooms were incredible, the bathrooms were luxurious and the kitchen had everything we needed.

  • "My husband and I were privileged to be the first guests at Falls Cottage in Skye and we couldn’t recommend the accommodation more highly."

    The cottage was in a stunning location with lovely walks from the accommodation itself. The cottage was really cosy, comfortable and beautifully equipped with beautiful views. The overall facilities and equipment in the kitchen were outstanding and a real home from home. Maggie had thoughtfully provided us with basic supplies such as bread, milk, butter, eggs, fruit as well as freshly baked scones and shortbread. She even kept us supplied with home baking throughout the whole week. Roddy and Maggie were both so approachable and welcoming and we couldn’t have wished for better hosts, a fabulous holiday for sure. Thank you.
