  • "Fabulous cosy cottage with all we needed for a comfortable stay."

    A good location to see the wealth of attractions on the Isle of Skye and enjoy the wonderful food on offer at local hotels and restuarants. This was a magical holiday for us.

    From the lovely phone call with Rosemary prior to our arrival, to the lovely treats upon arrival. The cottage has everything you need. We had rainy days where we could hunker down and enjoy the coziness of the cottage, and also beautiful sunny days where we enjoyed evenings outside in the beautiful surroundings. We especially loved sitting outside to enjoy the amazing blue moon. We are already planning our next holiday and won’t hesitate to book again. Our three children have fallen in love with Skye as much as we have.

    It was peaceful, idyllic, and comfortable. It topped off our experience in Scotland perfectly! We were ready for a quiet place to relax and found it. And no one mentioned the stars I woke up in the middle of the first night and the stars in the sky were just incredible. I wish we’d had more than a couple nights to stay.

  • "We loved our stay in Uig!"

    The cottage was beautiful and comfortable. Rosemary had everything we needed for our stay and was super kind and welcoming! Coffee, tea, bread, milk, and boxes of tissue were there for us. The countryside around the home was gorgeous. The one bathroom was a little difficult with 5 of us adult women there, and the water temperature was very unstable, but we made it work! Also, the upstairs got quite hot at night. Overall, I would definitely recommend staying here! But the directions to get here are tricky. Look for the owner's name on the gate, which might be open and hard to see, especially at night. The long driveway (with the gate) is on the right side of the road before the dirt road begins (don't go down the dirt road!).

    The house itself is very cosy, comfortably furnitured and tastefully decorated.

    It is so peaceful with fabulous views from the windows. Inside there is everthing you need for a truly relaxing, comfortable holiday. The furnishings are of good quality and most importantly for someone with a bad back the beds are very comfortable. We had lovely weather all week, but on the cooler evening the log fire was wonderful and made for a very relaxing evening after a long day of hiking. The owner is lovely, we contacted her a week before arrival and she gave us clear and helpful advise about the cottage. On arrival there was milk in the fridge and shortbread and bread buns on the side, which was a lovely touch so we could have a cuppa after our long journey. We will definitely be back and would recommend the cottage to friends and family looking for a relaxing vacation away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

    Thank you for your delightful comments. I look forward to welcoming you back if you do return to Skye Property Owner

    The cottage was in a beautiful location and was lovely and quiet. There was everything there that we needed, plenty of towels, all the kitchen equipment that we needed and a BBQ which was very useful. It was clean and comfortable. There were five people in our party and there was plenty of room for all of us. The weather as always in the Isle of Skye was unpredictable but the heating was perfect and there was always the option of a log burner and electric fire. We would definitely stay here again.

  • "We had a really lovely stay at Totescore."

    The cottage is really cosy, clean and well-equipped. Beds and sofas were comfy. My main comment would be that the shower isn't very powerful (but it was still fine). There was a good TV with sky/netflix etc as well as DVDs and a book shelf for rainy weather. Internet was good and although mobile phone reception was limited we were kindly invited to use the landline so were able to make any urgent calls that we needed to. The location is very peaceful - a bit isolated (although Uig is a 5 min drive and has a very well-stocked local shop) but great for visiting the Quiraing. It was a little bit of a trek to get to southern-most parts of the island but definitely doable. Our host was lovely - we had a call in advance of our arrival to share information and welcome biscuits etc. All-in-all I would definitely recommend 6 Totescore to anyone looking for accommodation in the Trotternish area.

    We really enjoyed our stay. The owners were helpful with suggestions of things to do in the area. It was a lovely quiet location where the only thing we could hear was a cuckoo nearby. The only slight downside is that the bathroom is downstairs and bedrooms upstairs, which is a bit awkward in the middle of the night.

  • "Damp mould in both end bedrooms at ground level near windows."

    Sky TV is an old sky box not connected to a phoneline with limited freeview channels. The TV is old and volume increases and decreases on its own. BT Internet reception is intermittent where there is no service for hours. As 3G reception is poor then its only the TV for company. No starter kit for fire which is part of the listing but we left some for next travellers, 3/4 of a bag left by us. Shower becomes temperamental and stopped working then no hot water. Had to turn hot water tank off at wall a few times until light on switch came on. Cant open bathroom window so bathroom steams up. No heating between bathroom and living room so it's a chilly walk through the doors. Not a single book, game or dvd in the cottage as mentioned in listing but there is a book of things to do or a guest book to sign. Thought maybe Covid19 related but how can you have a book of things to do and instructions but no books to read as both is touched and hence the late check-in of 4.30 to properly clean it. Cobwebs in all rooms at ceiling height, dead spiders and a bath towel with oil on it. Bottle of milk which was open in fridge dated next day even though instructions state empty fridge and leave cottage as you expect it. We cleaned that cottage for next travellers and hoovered even though someone goes in to make it up for next traveller. Woke up to a loud bang one morning to find a 4x4 parked over by the shed, I expected privacy not strangers letting themselves in especially as its a safety issue with children. Outside light on corner is faulty so only light at door. Certainly not worth the rental price of the stay and I wouldn't pay it again. Its a lovely a cottage in a tranquil setting but when occupied visitors shouldn't be coming and going, whoever does the cleaning isn't doing it when there's Cobwebs and dead spiders. The photos on the listing doesn't reflect the cottage. The enclosed garden has been forgotten about and everything looked dead. My garden is alive in October but this looked dead. The facilities were good, kitchen well stocked with pots etc, bedding was clean, towel was covered in oil but folded in double bedroom ready for use. The fire was cosy but no wood. We stayed at a cottage in Hunglader 3 years ago, the heating was on, a welcome pack provided, spotlessly clean, smart tv so we could get entertainment, books, dvds, games all available so maybe our expectations are in comparison to that which was half the cost of this cottage. Next visit to Skye will be back to Hunglader at Beith cottage opposite Skye museum.

    I am sorry to hear of the problems experienced. Some are due to geography and being in a remote and rural area the internet can fluctuate at times . This was raised with BT who stated yesterday it has improved the signal. TV signal is also affected by the location but a new HD tv is being installed today. The shower may have been affected by water pressure and was thoroughly investigated by a qualified tradesman yesterday. There are logs in a large log pile outside. Apologies if this was not made clear. All books and games were removed due to Covid rules but these will be replaced soon. I am very surprised to hear there were cobwebs as our housekeeper is very thorough. In an old property they can appear overnight. I have never seen "mould" in the property but this will be investigated today. Autumn gales play havoc with gardens in the islands but it can be a very restful spot in fine weather. The house is on a working croft as stated and the crofter may need access to the shed occasionally. I appreciate the frustration of being indoors when internet is affected and the weather is bad. I hope you were able to enjoy some of the beauty and grandeur of our wonderful island. Property Owner

The property

Uig 3 miles.

This wonderful detached cottage is situated in the friendly crofting community of Totescore on the stunning north eastern tip of the Isle of Skye, three miles from the village of Uig.

Accessed via its own private road, this traditional Skye cottage is a much-loved family home dating back to circa.

1870, and forms part of a 15-acre working croft.

Tastefully appointed throughout, this charming Uig cottage is ideal for a family or group of friends who wish to savour the dramatic and unspoilt beauty that the magical Isle of Skye has to offer.

There are three delightful bedrooms on the first floor of this cottage near Uig, all fitted out with oak furniture, whilst on the ground floor is a bathroom with underfloor heating, and a large open plan living area with beech wood flooring, a cosy open fire and a smart and well-equipped Shaker-style kitchen, all of which make this room an ideal place to prepare a celebratory meal or simply enjoy the peace and quiet on offer from this Skye holiday home.

The parking area at the front of this Uig cottage leads around to an enclosed and pretty rear garden with mature plants and shrubs, so why not sit and enjoy the lovely mountains views, or better still, put on your walking boots and explore the dramatic Trotternish Ridge close by, which offers both short and long high level walks and of course, fabulous views?

The pretty village of Uig is close by, and just a 20-minute drive away is the capital town of Portree with its busy harbour and selection of shops and restaurants.

The whole island is easily accessible from your Skye cottage and what a perfect place to return to at the end of a busy day - just kick off your shoes, light the fire and relax.

About the location

UIG

Portree 15 miles.

The village of Uig (pronounced "Oo-ig"), at the northern tip of Skye, rests on the shores of Loch Snizort, Skye’s largest sea loch off the Atlantic. The village boasts two pubs, two shops, a hotel, a filling station and cafe, as well as two other businesses well-worth a visit. Uig Pottery sells a range of high quality pottery produced on-site, while the Skye Brewery sells its own superb real ales from the brewery shop. Sheltered by high cliffs, the bay is one of the most beautiful in Skye, and is home to the ferry terminal for the Outer Hebrides. Wildlife in the area includes golden eagles, sea eagles, pilot whales, seals and dolphins. The attractions of the Isle, including the main town of Portree, are all within easy reach of this tranquil base.
