  • "A well-cared for cottage in a stunning location."

    Fresh flowers and fireplaces ready to light made us feel very welcome by the owners. Saw an otter from dining room window and other otters and also seals on walks by the loch side. A very comfortable tranquil place to relax and enjoy the beautiful views. We would be very happy to return..

    Wow, you saw an otter from the Dining Room window...what are we doing wrong, don't think we have seen one from there in the last 35 years. Honestly, not kidding. Thank you both for being such wonderful guests, our home is immaculate, you are more than welcome to return anytime, it would be our pleasure to host you both again. We hope you arrived home safely after a very long drive. Thank you both, Carol & Andy x Property Owner

    Very clean, cosy, well equipped. Dealing with Carol was a pleasure. It’s not a big house which we love. And to wake up to that view was a dream.

    This is a wonderful place to spend a relaxing holiday, just settle into the landscape and enjoy jaw-dropping scenery. Carol's communication before, during and after our stay was helpful and concise. Thank you very much to Carol and Andy for sharing this lovely place with us.

  • "This is a great place to get away from it all."

    The house is on a very quiet road and in a beautiful loch side setting, surrounded by stunning views. From the beach by the house there are clear views of the dramatic 5 Sisters of Kintail and it’s possible to see Eilean Donan castle across the loch in the other direction. We loved the peace and quiet, the lovely local walks, the birds, the seals in the loch and the red deer in the hills behind. The house is comfortable and spacious with garden all around, woods behind and plenty of outdoor seating to sit and admire the views. We found it was also lovely and warm with both central heating and open fires in both reception rooms. And we were impressed with the level of cleanliness too. Communication with our host, Carol, was excellent and she had provided welcoming touches such as fresh flowers and complimentary toiletries. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tigh a Phailean.

  • "Fab cottage!"

    A real find! Right on the Loch side! Great for couples to get away from it all... We did! Probably one of the best walks right on your doorstep, no need to use the car to get there! Where else would you get one of the best views of the most photographed castle in scotland! You can also sit in the garden and watch the five sister, that's impressive! Would be great for kids too as there's loads of space in the cottage and garden. It also has a proper kitchen on the back which is lovely and a seating area round the back. The owner Carol was lovely and left us alone to chill! She also took the time to leave all those little extras and we really appreciated it! It's a lovely place! Would recommend!

    We even had the chance to experience the scottish sun and scenery. We hiked upon the hills to view the waterfalls which was aboslutely wonderful! We will be definetly be visiting back soon.

  • "Beautiful location with views over the loch."

    Was lovely to sit out the front by the loch with the morning cuppa before we headed off for walking or sightseeing such as the castle on the other side of the loch! The location is a good Base for Skye. Kintail and various walks. Plus if you want to travel further a field you can from here. Just stock up on provisions before you get here but three is a good co op at Kyle which is 30 mins drive. The only niggle is the road noise across the loch but it's really just a background noise. Cottage lovely and with friendly owners. Would stay again and have already recommended it to someone.

  • "I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in this comfy cottage, nicely situated overlooking Loch Duich with views of the hills beyond."

    Very clean bathroom and well-equipped kitchen and excellent wi-fi. A stroll one way takes you to views of Eilean Donan Castle across the loch or beautiful views of the Five Sisters of Kintail in the other direction. The host is extremely thoughtful and offered to leave some milk and food provisions as I was arriving late afternoon. I highly recommend Tigh na Phailean for a peaceful holiday in outstandingly beautiful countryside.
