    The cottage was lovely with all the facilities we needed. It was always warm and welcoming after a day out. Its central location on Skye was perfect for exploring all parts of the island. We will definitely be back.

    This is the best property we have ever rented. Even saw a seal from our window in the Loch. We were really sad to leave to go home.

  • "Amazing cottage in Isle of Skye."

    The kitchen is very well-equipped and it contains 2 bedrooms; one En-suite room (twin beds) with its bathroom and double bedroom. Each rooms has a TV. There is another toilet. The living room is amazing and you can see the sea with the mountain ( a fantastic view). There are 2 places as stores. There is washing machine as well as dryer. There is also a dishwasher. The owner of this cottage (Nikki) is lovely and so so so kind. I just recommend that if the sitting in the living room becomes towards the window in order to enjoy more with the fantastic view. I totally RECOMMEND it.

  • "This was our second visit to Skye and we knew we wanted to explore more of the middle and top of the island and due to it being autumn we had limited day light so we knew we had less time to travel so we chose Sconser because it is half way up the island ."

    This cottage couldn’t have been more perfect. The cottage itself was immaculate and I would highly recommend it . Nikki was lovely and offered to help us in anyway. ( thanks for this Nikki) . The cottage was well equipped with everything you could think of . The one thing that made our holiday is ( and it may say it on the list of things but I missed it ) is the fact it had a tumble drier . We were always climbing , at a beach or in a river so we always had washing and it was great to be able to get it dried straight away! The view was amazing . Every night I sat and just watched it get dark , absolutely perfect . The cottage has two bedrooms. The twin room has an en - suite ( which completely made our daughters holiday

  • "Very warm welcome."

    The owner is really friendly and helpful. One little remark: the picture I saw (a bit different from the one here above) didn't show the real situation of the house. I really thought it was isolated and surrounded by a garden. In fact it is on the main road but as it is a bit higher you don't really see the traffic.You hear it though. Very comfortable inside with all we need to feel at ease. I recommend the place.
