Thank you! Reviewed by AnandaJun 2022 "Lovely cottage- really enjoyed our stay." Thank you. Reviewed by StephenApr 2022 "The property is in a beautiful location and is clean enough however , the heating in the property is mediocre at best so had a few chilly nights as there are drafts ." Skye is a wet and windy place but there are no drying facilities so wet coats , gloves shoes etc have to be dried in a creative manner. The TV was broken , reported it to Sykes who immediately contacted the owner who sent there handyman out who confirmed it was broken but it wasn’t replaced .So a few nights spent on our phones ( not exactly thrilled about that ) Considering check out time is 10 am and check in isn’t until 4 pm , I am surprised it wasn’t picked up on when the inspection is done before we arrived . Good job our kids are grown up . Not the best cottage for wet/cold weather . I am disappointed as it wasn’t quite up to the same standards as we have had in the past with other cottages through Sykes that we have had in the winter months and loved every minute . We will definitely rent again through Sykes , just not the same place . Thank you for the feedback and we feel under the circumstances that it is important that we respond. The house has a shoe rack and clothes horse to assist with drying wet items. The heating to the lounge and hall was renewed December 2021. There are additional heaters in all bedrooms and all can be turned on and adjusted to give additional heat. The TV was checked and was working on your day of arrival. As there are no shops on Skye that sell TV's we were unable to replace during your visit. We purchased a new digital box and compatible smart TV and had that installed in just over 48 hours from Sykes notification email. On a personal visit to do this we noted that the house was nice and warm on what was a cold day on Skye. Whilst your booking was for two adults we wonder as to why you mention "kids" when the use of the house confirms otherwise.

Reviewed by AlisonDec 2021 "Nice cottage right at the top of Skye All you need for a restful break" Reviewed by ColinNov 2021 "House was comfortable and clean." Lovely situation with good views. Nice furniture and fittings. We were very lucky to experience good weather. There are no real drying facilities in the house should you encounter wet weather or anywhere to put wet coats/boots. Mezzanine bedroom has restricted height - was ok for us but maybe not for taller folk! Kitchen was well equipped although due to lack of space only a small fridge/freezer and no dishwasher. A welcome pack with a few basics would have been a nice touch especially considering the more remote location of the house and the weekly rental paid. It doesn’t have to cost a lot to provide this. Take everything you need (tea, coffee etc) with you. The pub that is mentioned in the description we ascertained must be the Flodigarry Hotel - a 10 minute drive away. We ate here one evening which was very good but pretty expensive. Overall we loved Skye and had a great week .
