  • "A nice spacious property in a lovely location which was ideally situated for visiting other places on the island."

    Property was clean with everything you needed for your stay. The owner was very accommodating in a request and query we made prior to our stay and replied promptly. The only issue we had was that the double bed was very uncomfortable and could do with a better mattress however, we would return again in the future.

    If I had the money I'd live there in a heartbeat. Check out the books, the owner has great taste. Well worth the money.

  • "We had a great holiday on Skye."

    The cottage was comfortable, it was great to combine with the other cottage just across the road for our two families. The owner of the cottage even went above and beyond to provide us a bbq for us to use during our stay. Many thanks. We had an amazing week. Location was perfect for day trips around the island.

  • "Good location, great with enclosed garden for dog and good walks from the cottage."

    Kitchen well equipped and nice that owner left tea and coffee and biscuits . Downside was the musty smell throughout and the bathroom could do with being modernised for the price we paid . Double bed was quite uncomfortable and would expect a better quality for the price that was paid for the week. Holiday was great as it was our first visit to Skye and there was so much outdoor exploring to be done. Will be back

  • "The cottage had a really strong musty and doggy smell."

    The microwave was rusty inside and the cooker was filthy inside as was the toaster. The television wasn’t working properly so I tried to contact the owner to find out if he knew there was a problem with it and also to tell him about the microwave and the terrible smell. He didn’t answer so Sunday I phoned Sykes and he then did make contact when they had spoken to him. He came out to see for himself acknowledged there was a very strong dog smell but put that down to the wet weather and there had been 2 dogs in previously. He said he would replace the microwave and toaster and bring us some candles which he did later that day when he brought air fresheners. He fiddled with the back of the tv and said some leads were loose and the tv then worked. We tried to put up with the smell but by Tuesday decided to call it a day. We were terribly disappointed as we had so looked forward to visiting Skye and had spent a week in Oban the week before at a wonderful clean bungalow called Callinish which is also dog friendly.

  • "Cottage was fine and comfortable and the garden was perfect for the dogs."

    Only issue we had was the cottage is listed as having access to a boat for fishing. My hubby and 2 kids were looking forward to doing some fishing but the boat was completely submerged in the boat house. Maybe an idea to take out of description unless willing to replacing the boat.

  • "This is an ideal place for anybody looking for peace and quiet."

    The island itself is stunning and one of a kind. The views from the windows are jaw dropping. We felt better than at home and would love to revisit one day.

  • "Well, being a keen boat lover I was looking forward to rowing the row boat on the Loch but unfortunately it did have a slight leak and was making water when we both got into it, so I decided not to have my much looked forward to a bit of holiday fitness fun!"

    ! Hubby had a good hour or two alone fly fishing being very careful to take the bucket to bale out!! Also it would have been nice to have had life jackets? we would have bought our own if we had known. The location was wonderful fantastic walking and exploring lovely fenced garden for the dog a big asset ! Cottage was very clean the only thing was the wifi - it was useless as was the signal for mobile but honestly that was NOT really a problem. One other thing, not a complaint - just a note- we have in the past, had many cottages in Scotland that leave a small welcome pack - which is nice when you arrive - especially when its in an isolated location. We will be coming back to Skye because our daughter lives there and we would consider coming to Florin Cottage again :-)

  • "We had to e-mail (no phone signal in the cottage) the emergency contact to report that the oven was extremely dirty and that the door did not close and therefore unusable."

    The frying pan was unusable - due to appearing to have been burnt. The freezer compartment in the fridge was impacted with ice and badly in need of defrosting, unfortunately we had done a full shop on the way to the cottage and therefore had no choice but to use the fridge. There was no chopping board. The people managing the property responded immediately and within a few days they had installed a new cooker and a new frying pan and chopping board. They also gave us two bottles of wine for the inconvenience. The property could do with new pans and also a new mattress for the double bed. The springs were prominent and the mattress was very soft. The DVD controller was also missing. If these little problems were attended to, then we would not hesitate in booking this property again. The main reason for this holiday was to get away from fireworks due to our little dog being terrified of them. It was a great success as we did not hear one firework the whole time we were there

  • "Lovely, spacious property equipped with almost everything you could need & in a gorgeous location - even better than it looked in the photos!"

    The only thing that could make it better would be the inclusion of a telephone/internet connection, as it is in a very remote area where mobile phone reception is non-existent (while it's nice to be cut off to some extent, it meant we weren't able to contact restaurants for reservations before going out and I did worry what might happen if an emergency arose!). Otherwise, perfect & would recommend.

About the location

DUNVEGAN

Portree 22 miles.

The village of Dunvegan is set in the north west of Skye and contains a mixture of traditional stone and modern houses, along with a selection of shops and hotels. About a mile from the village is Dunvegan Castle, home to the Clan MacLeod, who have continuously occupied the castle since the 13th century. Only four miles away is the famous Three Chimneys Restaurant, a must for all foodies, and just a 10 minute walk away is the very popular Old School Restaurant, also worth a visit. Also in the area are the Cullin Mountains with their fantastic rock forms and pinnacles, which many climbers would put at the top of their list. Other attractions on the Isle are plentiful - visit the Talisker Distillery or Portree, the island’s only town, set around its natural harbour, which boasts an excellent range of shops, hotels and restaurants, and also offers Sea Eagle trips from the pier, which are extremely popular.
