    “Perfect! Can't wait to come back.”

    This fabulous holiday cottage undersells itself! The owner was really helpful and when we arrived late and well after dark after a rain drenched (but still spectacular) drive through the Highlands the cottage was unlocked, the lights were on, there was music playing, the central heating all on and a fantastic wood fire roaring in the log burner in the kitchen - it was so thoughtful, warm and welcoming and topped off by the most delicious homemade shortbread and lemon drizzle cake - what a lovely ...

    This fabulous holiday cottage undersells itself! The owner was really helpful and when we arrived late and well after dark after a rain drenched (but still spectacular) drive through the Highlands the cottage was unlocked, the lights were on, there was music playing, the central heating all on and a fantastic wood fire roaring in the log burner in the kitchen - it was so thoughtful, warm and welcoming and topped off by the most delicious homemade shortbread and lemon drizzle cake - what a lovely touch. That feeling of being at home, snug and warm whatever the Skye weather threw at us lasted the whole holiday. We have stayed at dozens of cottages but this has to be one of the best. Really clean, well equipped and warm. The kitchen is snug and work space small but has everything you need and with the deep soft sofa and the wood burner in the same room, the cook was never on their own! The views from the conservatory are fantastic, the loch is in touching distance. Unwind watching the ferries and the fishing boats go by and the endlessly changing sky and lighting on the sea and the distant peninsulas from sunrise to sunset and moonrise over the water too - the whole place had our usual 'get up and go' group very happy to take life a lot slower. Seabirds, birds of prey, seals all to be seen from the door; a blessedly dog proof garden for our two collies to chase balls and play (but who also found staring out of the conservatory endlessly entertaining); no passing traffic - the only time we were overlooked was when the sheep came down off the headland to look through the fence. The Quirang is only minutes away on awesome single track roads, down to the Cuillins less than an hour. We left feeling thoroughly de-stressed and regenerated. The only word of warning - having a shower in the limited headroom when you are 6'3" tall is challenging - but did we care? - not at all! Really hope we can come back one day and would not now ever stay anywhere else on Skye. Thank you to everyone involved :) Also got to add a quick shout out to the fantastic local shop in the village 'Rankins' it genuinely has everything you can possibly need from the most basic tins to creative vegan foodstuffs, lots of environmentally aware products, fresh veg, frozen foods, wide range of drinks, toiletries, kitchen ware, hardware, gifts, post office - the place was a tardis for how much it fitted in to it's small footprint - it makes staying in Uig an absolute doddle and we had no need for any longer journeys to shops

About the location

UIG

Portree 15 miles.

The village of Uig (pronounced "Oo-ig"), at the northern tip of Skye, rests on the shores of Loch Snizort, Skye’s largest sea loch off the Atlantic. The village boasts two pubs, two shops, a hotel, a filling station and cafe, as well as two other businesses well-worth a visit. Uig Pottery sells a range of high quality pottery produced on-site, while the Skye Brewery sells its own superb real ales from the brewery shop. Sheltered by high cliffs, the bay is one of the most beautiful in Skye, and is home to the ferry terminal for the Outer Hebrides. Wildlife in the area includes golden eagles, sea eagles, pilot whales, seals and dolphins. The attractions of the Isle, including the main town of Portree, are all within easy reach of this tranquil base.
