"What can I say."
..it was perfect! I stayed with my two older children and from the moment we walked in we just felt happy. Lovely owners who couldn't have been more helpful. Beautiful sunsets overlooking the water. Cozy woodburner and everything you could need. I would recommend this cottage to anyone who needs to recharge their batteries and remember what's really important in life. I hope I will visit again many times.
"Very confortante cottage Fantastic position Very Very kind mr Martin"
"This is an amazing place!"
We had a wonderful time here and there is literally nothing I could say needs changed. The cottage is perfectly situated and internally is set up so well with everything you will need. It is warm, comfortable and very clean. Martin is great and so helpful, the cake and shortbread on arrival was a lovely touch - they were still warm and very delicious!! We would without hesitation stay here again. The location is also great for exploring the areas in the north west of Skye, we loved our walks round Rubha Hunish and the Quiraing both of which were a very reasonable drive from us.
"Gite conforme à la description avec une superbe vue sur mer."
Très tranquille malgré la proximité d'un camping. Pour les plus de 1,80m la salle de bain peut être juste (attention la tête) Je recommande vivement.
"The house is beautifully furnished, with excellent views."
We enjoyed the days very much! The kitchen had everything needed for cooking. The stereo is a big plus, because what could be nicer than listening to music while sitting in the chair and looking at the sea... For us, the highlight: the many (wild) animals that came by every now and then and could be observed through the large front window. Awesome! If changes were planned, three little things that would make the fantastic stay even better: Hairdryer, washing machine-tumbler combi unit, faster internet ;-) We love Jubilee Cottage and would be very happy to come again!
"We all loved staying at Jubilee cottage a very tranquil place with amazing views across the loch."
The owners couldn't do enough for you and the cottage was immaculately clean. The locals in the bar were also so friendly .We all had an excellent holiday and failing another holiday there this year we will be back next year. A big thanks for a perfect holiday from Kate and Lorraine from Malta and Mike and Jackie from Kilbarchan
"Very good cottage in a great location with fabulous views to the sea."
Weather was good so we took advantage of the large garden. Our dog loved it with loads of space to run about. The owners were very welcoming and we appreciated the homemade lemon drizzle cake and shortbread on arrival. Skye is a beautiful island with wonderful views and places to visit. Rha Waterfall and Fairy Glen worth a visit in Uig. Portree and Dunvegan Castle also a must see. If you like seafood the Galley restaurant is a great place for sit in or takeaway. The best calamari and scampi we have tasted.
"We had a lovely week at Jubilee Cottage, it had everything we wanted for a relaxing holiday."
The cottage was very comfortable, we especially enjoyed sitting in the conservatory looking out over the sea. The large garden was great for our dogs too
"Really lovely holiday home, owners very friendly & helpful."
Jubilee cottage was in a fabulous position overlooking the sea. Would recommend to friends.
"A lovely cottage in a peaceful location."
The cottage is right on the shores of the Loch with excellent views. The facilities are as stated on the Web site.The heating is on a timing and comes during early evening and first thing in the morning. There is also a wood burning fire, which is well stocked with wood. The kitchen is fine and well equipped, this includes an Airfrier. (Never used one before, I was quite impressed, now I need to go buy one) I noted from previous reviews that some people had an issue with the shower, and the sloping roof. I'm 6 feet tall and had no issues whatsoever, I stood upright with room to spare. My only comment would be that a non slip shower mat would enhance safety, particularly for those who are slightly infirm. Apart from that very minor issue, the cottage and location is first class. The owners live next door and on hand should assistance or advice be required. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and recommend it without hesitation. Thank you for a lovely week.
"We arrived at Jubliee Cottage on a cold, damp and drizzly day and walked into a fire in the grate and a homemade lemon loaf on the counter."
It could not have been more welcoming. The cottage was fresh, clean and had everything we could need, including lovely towels and bedding. Uig is a peaceful little community on the water and Jubilee Cottage has a particularly private orientation, being the last cottage on a rocky beach. It was an absolute pleasure to wake in the mornings and enjoy a cup of tea in the front room looking out over the water, and the best way to end our days, looking out over bay as the sun set. I only wish we'd planned to stay longer.
"We hadban amazing week in Skye."
The cottage was beautiful and the views spectacular. I would definitely recommend this cottage in Uig as a base to explore this amazing island. The hosts are very welcoming and baked us a lovely cake which was delicious. A definite must go 5 stars all round
"Fantastic place to stay."
All creature comforts in a fabulous setting. The shortbread and lemon cake were a great touch.
"Great place to stay, lots of walks from door."
Hard to get away from the views from the dining room. Cottage well stocked, quality linen and towels. Best sleep ever. Hosts and superb, Lemon cake and shortbread on arrival. Pottery, and Brewery excellent. Missed some spots so will have to go back.
"Absolutely lovely cottage and lovely owners - we had a wonderful time."
Our dog loved looking out the large windows in the conversatory and watching the sea and the sunrise and sunset. The cottage is lovely and comfortable and the kitchen is one of the best supplied we have seen! The log burner gives off so much heat around the whole cottage and makes for lovely cosy evenings with a glass of wine. The owners were very friendly and helpful, pointing out the best places for walks and always had a smile. Uig itself is a lovely place with friendly people. I would highly recommend a stay at Jubilee Cottage!
"The house is in a nice location, sitting very near the sea and the views are lovely."
The garden is large and enclosed so ideal if you have a dog. The house is a lovely old building and the wood burning stove fire was huge and really cosy. The house is smaller than it looks. The living room/kitchen area is compact with hardly any worktop space. There were 2 separate areas of the house where water was coming in every time it rained. Not ideal. My biggest bugbears were the bathroom. The shower is over the bath which is fine but anyone taller than 5ft will struggle to stand upright. My husband is 6 2 so had to shower like a banana all week. The house is part of a small campsite. Whilst it is separate and detached I would not have booked it had I known this. Similarly the shower issue would have been a deal breaker too had I been aware. There were only the 2 of us and our wee dog. One other person would have been fine but 6 people using the bathroom every day would have been very impractical. The owners are next door and were friendly and responsive but for the reasons I’ve stated and the fact that the house is tired and needs tlc, we would not return or recommend
We have a number of issues with this review-first of all, it is clear in the specifications of the property that the shower is over the bath. It is also clear from the photographs that it is a traditional Croft house with the traditional sloping roof. I’m not sure where you thought the bathroom might be? The photographs also show the kitchen, and while the kitchen has been replaced within the last 12 months, the worksurface space is exactly as shown. The decor is in keeping with the age of the house, but is regularly maintained. The house is NOT part of a campsite, while we own both, the cottage is completely separate and the only shared space is the access road! We can only apologise for the rain drips, but unfortunately you were here for the tail end of Hurricane Ian so the weather was extreme. We bent over backwards to your requests, including turning a mattress at your request and at no point did you voice any other problems. I believe the conversation I had with your husband regarding the leak was ‘a little bit of water, but it’s not a problem’. Property Owner
"A magnificent spot if you are seeking a peaceful holiday with a window on amazing nature."
We were glued to the view from the conservatory where we saw seals, sea otters, and so many incredible sea birds. The owners couldn't have been more helpful (including the delicious home-made cake and shortbread which greeted us), and we'd have no hesitation recommending Rainbow Cottage for a superb holiday on this wonderfully rugged island.
"Loved our stay here, such a beautiful outlook on to the bay where we saw sea eagles and seals."
Could of sat there all day, didn’t use the living room. Beds comfy too. The heating must have been preset and came on really late but it didn’t bother us as we had warm temperatures and didn’t use log burner. Lovely shortbread and lemon cake on arrival was greatly appreciated. The local pub on pier very spit and sawdust but friendly and has pool table. Nice takeaway in village as part of petrol station//store does lovely fish n chips. Other pub on outskirts of Uig was not open often so didn’t visit. Loved Skye but wouldn’t stay in Uig again despite the wonderful cottage as prefer a cosy pub to visit in evening, which we saw in other areas of Skye.
"A superb week in a fantastic location."
Excellent hosts, great property, loch shore only two yards away. Sea Eagle flying overhead, seals watched from the comfort of the sun lounge. Thank you very much for your kind hospitality.
"It was brilliant with the shortbread and extreme lemon drizzle cake welcome cozy ..."
It was brilliant with the shortbread and extreme lemon drizzle cake welcome cozy and comfortable views were breathtaking and would recommend to anyone
"Clean, beautifully decorated, lovely location right next to the shoreline."
The homemade cake and shortbread waiting for us were a lovely touch. The owner was easily contactable for any queries. A great place from which to explore Skye.
"Great cottage and Martin is excellent host"
"Lovely cottage for us and our dog, large garden for our dog to run around."
Tranquil location and wonderful when the sun shines to be close to the water. Great location for exploring the fabulous Isle of Skye
"A lovely cottage with great views out over the loch."
A warm welcome with cake and shortbread. Great for exploring the north of Skye
"Our stay at Jubilee Cottage was wonderful."
A real home from home, but with views to die for. Warm welcoming, friendly hosts who were available if needed but did not intrude on our stay. The homemade lemon drizzle cake and shortbread were yummy. We will definitely be recommending to family and friends, and hope to return soon.
"Beautiful cottage, very friendly and helpful owners, amazing location (we usually prefer the hills but thoroughly enjoyed watching the seals in the bay!"
). This is on our Skye list of rentals and we will be back. Thank you to the owners.
"A truly superb cottage with stunning views, and everything you need."
Relax and chill. The owners couldn't be more lovely.
"Stunning location, very close to the sea and the warm conservatory, with very comfy seats was my favourite place to sit."
The spa bath was a lovely treat. Very Cosy living room, comfy sofas and log burner. Kitchen well equipped. Beautiful views from all 3 comfy bedrooms. Uig is a great location with 2 restaurants/ bars, shops, petrol station nearby and a stunning part of Skye looking out to the outer hebrides. Did not want to leave.
"Lovely cottage - clean, warm and with everything you need for a relaxing holiday!"
"Great location with stunning views."
Owners of property on nearby camp site who are very attentive. Overall a wonderful holiday.
"Lovely touch with lemon drizzle cake and shortbread left by the owner."
"Martin and Lisa are excellent hosts,m approachable, helpful and thoughtful."
Jubilee cottage is in a fabulous location on loch Snizort, with wonderful views all round, and interesting wildlife including an inquisitive seal watching us, oyster catchers and a merganser on the loch pied wagtails and our first sight of a wheatear in the garden. We absolutely loved our stay in this lovely cottage.
"Prime spot for a relaxing get away from it all holiday."
"The Cottage is perfect and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay."
The warm welcome we received on arrival really got our stay off to a great start. The wood burning stove was lit for us and the cottage was really cosy for us. The views out over Uig bay from the sun room is absolutely amazing. Thanks for everyone for a great stay.
"Fantastic cottage and really lovely owners."
We could have sat in front of those windows watching the sea all day if we didn’t have the beautiful island to explore!
"A stunning cottage right on the shore line so lovely."
we would reccomend it to everyone
"House was fabulous."
Amazing views from the conservatory. Large enclosed garden perfect for our Labrador. Kitchen fully equip with everything we needed. Not cold enough to light the fire but it was all set up ready to go. Shower was lovely and hot even with four of us going in one after the other. Access to the beach for exploring straight from the garden. Covid restrictions on the island meant limited access to take away food but shops near house and Portree so not an issue. Enjoyed our few days in Skye.
"We had a fantastic week in Skye."
The house was perfect. Really spacious, incredible views as good or better than expected from the pictures. Martin, the owner, was brilliant. He was really friendly and gave us a really warm welcome. We will definitely be back. The house is great and location is perfect.
"Great welcome from owners with log fire going and home baking still warm."
The cottage was very clean and beds were comfortable. Seating four by the fire in the evening did require moving a chair from the conservatory back and forwards each day as there is only 3 adult seats on the sofa. The bathroom does have restricted height under the shower but was not a problem for us with none of us being 6ft. Fenced garden is large with fantastic views but if you had a small dog it could slip under the bottom rail of the fence onto the beach. Overall the cottage is very much as described.
"After a scenic journey through the most stunning country side."
We arrived at the cottage and were delighted to see that the log burner was already lit. The views from the cottage were amazing and included seals bathing in the bay. Not forgetting the homemade lemon drizzle cake and shortbread.
"We stayed at the same place last year and enjoyed it that much we booked the ..."
We stayed at the same place last year and enjoyed it that much we booked the same this year, it was a beautiful relaxing holiday we felt very welcome and the cottage is beautiful
"We had an amazing stay at Jubilee Cottage."
The cottage had all we needed for a lovely relaxing stay. We didn't need books, we spent our time in the conservatory with binoculars or just watching the ferries and fishing boats. We saw so much wildlife including eagles, otters, ravens, a pod of dolphins and a peregrine which kindly landed on the fence for a few moments!! We were lucky to have some good weather and sat out in the lovely garden. The owners were very friendly but not intrusive. Loved the place, would definitely come back.
"Everything from the peaceful area, even with the busy ferry port, was wonderful."
The cottage was very well equipped and in a fantastic location, with wonderful sea views. The only drawback was the sofa and chair in the lounge, which were a bit uncomfortable. We used the chairs in the conservatory the most, as we spent more time there than in front on the tv! So not a huge issue. We also thought that some hooks in the bedrooms and bathroom would have been useful and some better privacy blinds in bedrooms and bathroom. Again not a huge issue but we were a bit conscious of the possibility of being seen from the beach.we would happily recommend jubilee cottage to anyone. We had plenty of amenities on site for our requirements.
"The cottage is in a superb location with stunning views."
It is a very comfortable cottage with a sun room looking out to sea.Martin the owner is very helpful and i would recommend it to anyone
"It was our 3rd time in that cottage - do we need to say any more?"
"It was an amazing holiday - a lovely cottage right by the sea Loch."
We even had sea otters on the rocks by our cottage one morning! Owners were great and provided us with lovely baking to sustain us after the great walks we did with our dogs, I am still missing sitting in the conservatory looking out over the loch - it was heaven
"A lovely, comfortable house on the edge of the small village meant that we had easy access to amenities but with a very quiet and private base right on the shoreline."
It was so welcoming to arrive to a warm house with music on and a delicious selection of home baking. Thank you Martin
"An excellent holiday home, even better in real life than the pictures!"
The views from cottage were fantastic and the cottage itself was perfect, everything we needed was provided. The owners even left us some homemade shortbread and cake on arrival. Thank you very much!
"Lovely welcome from the owners with some shortbread and a lemon drizzle cake, they live next door but didn't bother us all week unless we approached them."
The cottage was very comfortable, well equipped and very quiet being on the end of small road through the village. View from the conservatory was absolutely beautiful and the garden was excellent for our terrier to exercise on. A few steps from the pub, local shop, petrol station and the Isle of Skye brewery shop, a lovely week had by all.
"We arrived on Sat 17th Nov to an extremely cosy and warm cottage, from the minute we arrived the owners were extremely helpful and welcoming bringing round cake and the most amazing shortbread, the cottage itself was beautiful and very clean we thoroughly enjoyed the whole stay and the settings were perfect for a nice relaxing break, stunning views everyday as well as beautiful weather to boot the dogs had a big garden to run around in and also enjoyed themselves, I would highly recommend this cottage for a cosy peaceful break, thank you Martin and Lisa for being the perfect hosts and making our holiday so special we will definitely be back again."

"The house is in a terrific location."

"Jubilee Cottage in Uig is simply stunning."
We had a week there and were blessed with wall to wall sunshine which allowed us to not only make the best use of the cottage but also the surrounding area which is quite beautiful and great for exploring. There were very few midges about when we were there (end of May, early June) as the sea breeze kept them away. Having said that, even when there was no breeze we noticed very few, so if that is something you are worried about (I was) then it wasn't a problem for us. In all honesty, the pictures don't do the cottage or its location full justice. Its located at the end of a road, so no passing traffic and almost no one walking past on the beach. It's perfectly quiet with the only passing traffic (which is very little) being the boats out in the bay. The ferry only docks 3 times a day and is well out in the bay so not intrusive in any way. in fact we loved watching them. We saw plenty of wildlife looking out of the window, including many birds fishing in the bay, seals and a pod of porpoises (or dolphins). Make sure you pack a pair (or two) of binoculars as our evenings consisted of sitting looking out to sea, seeing what we could spot. We've got two kids and a dog who were free to roam with no problems at all, with them all loving the beach. The owners are extremely friendly and accommodating and helped with recommendations on where to visit, but weren't intrusive at all (they live next door). All in all, I can't recommend it highly enough and I'd like to think we'll revisit at some stage. Its a very relaxing cottage in a stunning location, which I can't fault in any way. We loved it and were sad to leave. Fantastic - book now!
"Very comfortable dog friendly cottage in a most beautiful location with lovely views over the bay."
Kind and helpful owners. Would love to return one day.
"Stunning views from cottage."
Martin and Lisa (and family) very friendly. Cottage fully equipped.
"The owners are so friendly."
..great home made cakes & biscuits bought along. Lovely cottage and garden.
"Lovely cottage with extremely helpful owners."
Most delicious lemon drizzle cake and shortbread to die for!
"This cottage is absolutely Lovely and situated right on the Bay at Uig, there are lovely views across the bay and if you are lucky you may see the seals as they go by."
The owners should be proud of the cottage and facilities provided, the garden is enclosed and our dogs loved running around enjoying the freedom, The conservatory is a great place to sit and relax any time of the day, on a night if there is a clear sky just turn the lights off and watch the stars. If you are looking for a relaxing atmosphere then this cottage has it and I would recommend it highly.
"Beautiful setting, lovely touch having home made baking delivered, owner was really approachable, helpful."
"The veiws from the cottage were beautifull and the enclosed garden was great for the dogs and the owners came round with lemon cake and short bread which was a lovely touch ."
The house was lovely and clean .the house is close to the pub and shop and a short walk to the ferry inn where the food was fantastic abit pricey but worth it and dogs can come in
"Perfect location, so peaceful and relaxing."
Made to feel very welcome with homemade cake and shortbread waiting for us! Beautiful cottage with all the comforts of home. I will be booking this lovely cottage again in the future.
"A fantastic holiday cottage, couldn't really fault anything."
Warm, clean and cosy- our basset hound was in heaven lying in front of the wood burning stove!! We will defiantly be back!
"Had a great time ay uig."
Cottage was just like the photo's, lovely watching the boats going in and out of the harbour each day, would highly recommend the isle of skye such an amazing place to tour.
"A fantastic little cottage and a wonderful location."
The view out of the lounge is unbelievable. Warm welcome by the owners. It's perfect for up to 4 persons. For 6 persons it might be a bit too small. Look forward to booking this one again.
"We had a wonderful relaxing holiday in a beautiful place for the second year running."
Can't wait to go back.
