"We stayed at Skeabost for our honeymoon and it was amazing!!"
We stayed at Skeabost for 3 nights for our honeymoon. The cottage is tucked away off a road and it really does feel like you're away from everyone and everything else. In a word, it is beautiful.… More

"Relax in luxury, peace and tranquility"
The silver birch wood within the grounds of the cottage was great for our 7 and 9 year olds to explore. The surrounding area is beautiful and ideal for running/jogging away from the main road. The cottage is well placed for exploring the north and west of Skye with facilities in Portree a short drive. Dunvegan Castle and Tallisker Bay well worth a visit. Ales from the Isle of Skye Brewery a real treat, particularly the 'Red Cuillen'.

"Stunning property, amazing location"
I was lucky enough to spend just a few days at Skeabost Wood Cottage and I can't wait to go back. The house is beautifully positioned, tastefully and comfortably furnished, and a great deal of care has been given to the needs of the guests, with instructions, recommendations, maps all provided. A perfect and tranquil base from which to explore this incredible island.

I have been visiting Skye for 20 years now, ever since I was a kid. I have stayed in various places around the island with my family and later with my spouse, and I can honestly say that the Skeabost Wood Cottage is my absolute favourite of all.
It's beautifully decorated in a minimalist (but not cold) style, with nice rustic touches around the place and an amazingly comfy sofa. The kitchen is really well equipped with plenty of crockery and post/pans so that we could even entertain guests (my parents, who were staying in Portree and were very envious of our abode!)
The master bed is very comfy, and the blinds were sufficient to block out the near-midnight sun on a clear summer's night.
Also the location was perfect for us - being nature-geeks we don't like to be in the (relative!) hustle and bustle of town, so the peace and quiet but still very convenient location of the cottage (5/10 mins drive to Portree) was perfect. During our stay we spotted hares, a redpoll, willow warblers, bullfinches and even an eagle soaring high above the cottage one glorious sunny morning.
I can't say enough about the place. The hosts have been communicative and friendly throughout the booking process and everything went perfectly. I certainly hope we'll be back in future!

Skeabost Wood Cottage is a fantastic property. The features and finish of the property are of the highest quality and it has a lovely warm inviting atmosphere. The views from the dining room window are simply stunning. I would recommend the property to anyone looking to stay in the Portree area.
