    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.

    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.

    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.

  • "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.

  • "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.

  • "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!

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.
