  • "We had a bad experience at the same cottage last year and expected our review to be acted upon."

    Sadly this year was even worse. On opening the front door we were hit by the incredible smell of dampness, which is now visible in the bedrooms, I have photographs confirming this. The bathroom grouting is very dirty - this may also be due to the dampness. There was a used towel scrunched up in the bathroom and the toilet seat was cracked. The only thing that was better this year was that there wasn’t a bedside cabinet full of other people’s clothes. The cottage is ideally situated - it’s a tragedy that it’s not being cared for, and I cannot believe that there was a ‘cleaning team” who prepared it for our arrival. I wouldnt recommend it at all and definitely won’t return

  • "First holiday for 2 years."

    Many restrictions still in place,but the cottage was a safe haven.

  • "The bungalow was comfortable."

    It could have been a little cleaner. Having self catered for many years we try to leave properties as clean and tidy as I find them, although not spotless we feel we have left Caladh Na Sith cleaner than we found it. Some information on the oven functions would be helpful particularly as they are barely visible on the dial. It was guess work using the hob and oven.

  • "Good the bed was comfortable and the location was very quiet."

    Not so good there was a smell of damp throughout the cottage, it's not surprising that there are no pictures of the bathroom it was barely adequate for 2 people, there is no cabinet so everything was left on the sink, the shower was poor the toilet cistern took more than fifteen minutes to fill once flushed. The kitchen was very poorly equipped with cracked cups and chipped plates and an oven that has symbols that are worn away, the fridge freezer was too small for more than two people the windows are very dirty the pictures on the website need updating. The damp issue needs to be addressed the bathroom needs replacing same with the kitchen, although this cottage was cheeper than many places on Skye it was still poor value for money ,pre covid we would have rented a much better equipped cottage in the Loire valley in France for 14 days for only a hundred and twenty pounds more than this cottage cost us for only 7 days .

  • "This was postponed from May 20 due to Covid at extra cost."

    Sykes performance over refunds was appalling - we could not even get anyone to talk to us. We will never use Sykes again and are telling all our friends. The cottage was a bit dated and in need of a bit of TLC but met all our needs. We would like to use it again and hope they find new agents

  • "Location is perfect and house has adequate facilities."

    A few suggested improvements would be: heater in bathroom (wasn't working), bathroom fan would reduce condensation, dishwasher, door handle not the easiest to use. Parking on the grass is not ideal - it was extremely wet when we stayed so gravel would be better to prevent churning up of the ground. We had a great stay and would return.

  • "This was our third stay at the cottage and new just what to expect."

    With Covid we took all We needed for the week. The one thing that would have helped would have been access to the internet to check on what was on in Skye and what was open. A minor issue we still very much enjoyed our stay.

  • "Proper ventilation/extraction in the kitchen and bathroom would be a vast improvement."

    Ideally it needs a porch to take off and store wet gear

  • "Nice cottage in a very quiet location."

    Looked to have had some recent improvements, as not as dated as it appeared in the photographs. Would benefit from a heated towel rail in the bathroom as towels didn't dry very well.

  • "Cottage smelled musty, couldn't put clothing in the drawers as they all smelled musty too."

    It was ideal for a family our size but the kitchen equipment really let it down. There were two frying pans, one had the non-stick peeling off and the otherwas so filthy we didn't touch it. There were ample saucepans but anything that had a non-stick coating was peeling and everything was greasy and had to be washed before it could be used, including the cutlery. Wooden spoons so old the wood was separating and sticky utensils. Also most of the symbols on the oven dials have been scrubbed off. As a family not planning to eat out every day it made it hard work. Also the view from the cottage, whilst beautiful, is not quite as advertised as there are other buildings and foliage in front of the sea so the photo on the advert must have been taken with a zoom lens and is misleading. There was an issue with the shower which the owner corrected very quickly. Shame the kitchen lets this place down.

  • "The directions to the cottage were poor."

    I arrived about 7-30PM in the dark and could not find the cottage. I used your post code to guide me to the cottage, it guided me to the junction of the A87 and A851. The map on your website had the same location. I then spent an hour in the dark and the rain trying to find the cottage. I was about to give up and spend the night in the car when I noticed the directions said drive past the sign for Armadale. Then I tried again, I drove up and down the unmarked single road looking in vain for either the cottage name or number 9. It was only at the second time that I decided this must be the road. still no indication the cottage was here, the cottage name is not at the end of the drive as expected. It does have a sign, its brown and even in daylight couldn't be read from the road. After a seven and a half hour drive I didn't a hunt the cottage game. Your directions could have been so much better. At the junction of the unmarked road and the A87 you are spoilt for choice as to how to indicate this is the road. At the junction there are 4 signs: Stone sign for Broadford next to black and white sign for Willowdale B&B and immediately before the junction signs for Driftwood B&B and a big green highways information board. You could also have said, if you pass the sign for Harrapool you have just passed the road to the cottage. questions: Why don't you use all the possible signs to indicate the unmarked road? Why isn't the cottage signed at the end of the drive? Why does your post code direct people to the junction of the A87 & A851? One or two other issues: Double bed not made, it took me a couple of days before I had time to sift through the bed linen for the right one's for the double bed. My car got stuck on the grassy drive (more grass than drive) couldn't see in the dark. I also found it difficult to see the numbers on the key safe even with a torch. Despite all the above problems the cottage was ideal for my needs and a perfect location to explore Skye. I appreciated the quiet in particular.

  • "This is an excellent wee cottage in a great location."

    Apart from being in a quiet spot there are a few good restaurants only a Taxi ride away. The cottage itself is very comfortable. However a few recommendations I would make are as follows: a new front door, the TV didn't work properly so I would recommend a new one and slightly bigger, and the bathroom could do with a few shelves. Although it has 3 bedrooms, the cottage itself is quite small so would only recommend it for a family. Having only one bathroom could be a problem if all occupants were adults but can be managed. My husband and I feel very much at home in the cottage and am looking very much forward to returning next year.

  • "The directions to the cottage are misleading; when arriving, visitors need to pass the turning to Armadale (not just the sign), and take the next left before the small stone bridge."

    It's a great cottage and a super location. We had a great time, explored a lot but still have more to do - a week is nowhere near long enough! Just a couple of notes to the owner: 1. We managed to lock ourselves out of the bathroom! Fortunately the window was open so we posted our grandson in and he opened the door - the door had been closed from the outside with the lock in the locked position. 2. The tank overflow is running constantly - not usually a problem on Skye, I guess, but maybe this summer there's less water then usual...

Close by is the little village of Elgol, which enjoys 'the finest view in Britain' - the end of the Cuillin Ridge seen across Loch Scavaig.
