  • "I recently spent a weeks holiday at the delightful 6 Knott cottage, So late in the season we were a little apprehensive as to how comfortable the facilities would be……We need not have worried, we were both lucky with the weather and with the general amenities."

    6 Knott is a very well equipped property with all needs catered for.Situated as it is, it appeals to both the adventurous rambler and the stay at home comfort seeker, of which there we’re both in our party.It’s ideally suited for travelling the length and breadth of Skye…..We had a wonderful time doing just that. I would gladly stay at the property again, and would thoroughly recommend 6 Knott to anyone contemplating a visit to the island of Skye….at whatever time of year….., the owners have it covered. Thank you all for facilitating our stay… here’s to the next time?…..Tony Conroy.

    Dear Tony, thank you so much for such a lovely review! We are so pleased that you enjoyed your holiday on Skye and your stay at 6 Knott. We hope you can return! With best wishes, the Macdonald Property Owner

  • "This was a very charming cottage."

    I strongly recommend you change your expectations upon departure. It was inappropriate and a hardship to have to put all dishes/glasses etc back after running dishwasher and having to put all bedding in bags and take the recycling as well. Of the three other places we stayed they had no departure requests period! 7 people-2kids all our luggage and trying to get breakfast and out by 10 was a nightmare. You should also not schedule a groundskeeper to mow grass on a day you have guests (while we were eating breakfast!).

    Thank you for your feedback, we are glad you found the cottage to be charming. However, we are slightly confused as we do not request that guests put dishes and glasses back after running the dishwasher, nor do we ask anyone to take recycling - as there is a bin outside for recycling which is collected by the council. We do however, politely ask guests not to leave their empty bottles behind when they leave, but to deposit them in bottle recycling banks, as the council does not collect glass. This is really helpful to the housekeepers. However, we are sorry if you were inconvenienced by this, and also by having the lawn mowed while you ate your breakfast, we hope it did not spoil your holiday on Skye... Property Owner

  • "This was a hugely expensive property at over £2000 a week."

    Although it was nice there was not a feeling that this was a premium property. For example there was not enough toilet roll for the week for four of us and they were not new rolls which in these covid times is not right. The out side seats were very rustic one of which broke when we sat on it and there was rusty nail sticking out. When paying this much money you don't expect this. However, the beds were very comfortable and it was in a beautiful spot.

    Thank you so much for your feedback. We are delighted that you found the cottage comfortable and the location beautiful. During 2021 there was very high demand for self-catering cottages on the island, 6 Knott only became free because of a cancellation, which is why the algorithm-set price was higher than normal. We always do our best to ensure good value and a comfortable stay and we are available at all times to answer queries, or help guests with supplies, if contacted. We hope you can visit again one day.

  • "We didn't book a holiday in Skye because of the lovely weather, so we were spoiled by clear blue skies and sunshine all week."

    Because of the lovely weather, we didn't really get to use the house as much as we might have otherwise, but if we had, it had everything we could have asked for. It was warm, comfortable, well-equipped, and clean and very well presented. Really we could not have asked for anything more. It is ideally located for exploring Skye. It seemed to be in the middle of the island and everywhere we wanted to visit was only ever a relatively short and picturesque drive away. A car is necessary for this holiday I think to get the most out of it as it is quite rural, but that gives you a very quiet location and off-road parking which far outweighs the need of a car for us. This is a really lovely house which we feel very lucky to have found.

    The cottage itself is in a stunning location and is so homely. The beds are comfortable, towels fluffy, there is plenty of crockery and cutlery in the kitchen and the rooms are warm and cosy. The wetroom was a real bonus for our party of seven and hot water was never an issue. WiFi was fairly reliable for the remote location and there was a wealth of local info laid out for us to peruse. We parked two large vehicles easily. This was a fabulous location from which to explore the island and although blissfully quiet and peaceful it is easy to get to Portree for shopping, which was great for making up picnics for our day-long adventures in this incredible place.
