Very Good

“Fantastic location views are outstanding”

Reviewed 31 Aug 2018

Best cottage we have ever stayed in definitely home from home all the amenities you could ever want we were never out of the sun room a nice extra would be a portable T.V. In the sun room to watch at night would be the icing on the cake ,outstanding views and places to visit one week wasn't enough we will be back next year all being well.

Owner's reply: Denis & Molly Thanks for your great review, see you next year! Portable tv not something we have considered as a lot of guests use streaming devices, something for us to consider. Kind regards Dawn & Andrew

“Idyllic Cottage”

Reviewed 1 Oct 2017

This cottage is the best we've ever stayed in. Very tastefully furnished and well equipped. The utility extension was particularly useful for storing walking clothes and dog equipment. The sunroom has stunning views over the bay with daily sightings of seals. Dawn and Andrew were excellent owners to deal with

Owner's reply: Wow, thanks it's great to exceed expectations! Our motto is home from home as that's what we enjoy on our travels too..... Hope to see you both again, and Guido of course. All the best Dawn & Andrew

“Breathtaking view from this lovely cottage”

Reviewed 6 Aug 2017

We spent a week in Kirsty Cottage, it is home from home, has everything you need and more, very comfortable, the views are wonderful, spent a lot of time watching the seals witch we all enjoyed, there are small ponies too when you walk to the beach. Dawn and Andrew were very helpful, but not intrusive. we traveled all over Skye from the cottage, it is quiet however easy to access the Island. We also got some great news when we were there, we are going to be Grandparents again. Thank you for a lovely holiday.

Owner's reply: Thanks for your lovely review and congratulations to you all on your great news. Kind regards Dawn & Andrew

Beautiful location. Accommodation very comfortable and homely and lacks for nothing. Everything is tastefully done. Would highly recommend. Just beware of potholes on the island!

Owner's reply: Hi Caroline Thanks for your review, so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. Potholes are a nuisance around the island... Kind regards Dawn & andrew

“Meets our expectations”

Reviewed 26 Sep 2016

Our family (2 adults and a two year's old toddler) stayed at the Kristy's Cottage for five days in September 2016. We are pleased with our decision for it's location, fabulous view and the personal touch of the property. Unlike other holiday rental house, this property has the warmth feeling of home (it's the home of Dawn and Andrew in winter) and we love it. We chose to stay here for our little boy's second birthday for a lovely memory. Highly recommend to all families.

Owner's reply: Thanks for your great review. We really do appreciate it when guests enjoy our home as much as we do.It was lovely to meet you all and a real treat to join in the birthday celebrations, loved the blue cake! Kind regards Dawn & Andrew


Reviewed 25 Sep 2016

What a lovely cottage, a real home from home that had everything we needed and more. It is set in a lovely location out from Portree with lovely views but still very central for touring the island. We had a lovely week both visiting all the main tourist attractions and going exploring to the quieter places. Kirsty's cottage made a lovely cosy place to come back to, it has a lovely sun room which we ate our dinner enjoying the stunning views.

Owner's reply: Thanks for your great view glad your enjoyed your visit to Skye and your stay with us. It is nice also to go off the beaten track!

“Hidden paradise”

Reviewed 16 Apr 2016

Our visit started with a 3 hour drive in a rental car from Inverness Airport. The time flew by as the scenery became more and more breath taking. The cottage sits about 100 yards from the mouth of a loch, and can be seen from the opposite shore on your drive in (at least 30 minutes before you arrive on day one). On arrival, we were so relieved to find that the cottage felt like a home from home. There were none of the damp corners, bad smells and tired nick nacks that we had come to expect from previous self catering experiences. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen ideal, and the underfloor heating a real treat for cold days. Also, the TV and DVD collection were an ideal way for our teenage family to relax in the evening after a long day out adventuring. Our children loved watching the seals as they porpoised in the loch below, and the sheep as they grazed on the hill behind the cottage. Our favourite places to visit from the cottage were the Coral Beach, The Fairy Pools, and an evening drive along the B885 road from Bracadale to Portree - the most beautiful moorland drive of our lives! For the adventurous, the hills behind the cottage offer great views and the chance for a cardiovascular workout, as well as discovering hidden pools and waterfalls. We would not think twice about coming again or recommending this wonderful place to friends!

Owner's reply: Hi Simon & Sema It was lovely to meet you all, glad your birthday clebrations worked out. Thanks for the great review, so pleased you all enjoyed your visit to Skye and your stay with us. As promised details of our comfy mattress. It is Deep Sleep Supreme 1000 pocket sprung with memory foam. Kind regards Dawn & Andrew

“home from home”

Reviewed 12 Nov 2015

many people that stay at kirsty's cottage write in the visitor book that it is like a home from home. all we can say is we wish our home was like this . great view , lovely garden.just a couple of minutes walk to the shore. it has nice touches all around the cottage. warm, comfortable and clean. all in a peaceful location

Owner's reply: Hi daffy & Mandy Cheers for the review, glad you liked our home and enjoyed your stay with us. We have now moved back in for the Winter, so cosy nights by the fire. the first snow has arrived on the hills. All the best Dawn & Andrew

“The cottage felt like a home, and the location is superb”

Reviewed 10 Aug 2015

This is a great place to stay, and although we have stayed in quite a few holiday lets over the years, and often said 'we must go back', this time we mean it ! The accommodation is really comfortable and welcoming, and the views are amazing. Dawn and Andrew were very helpful, and it was a pleasure to meet them both. The location is great it you want a bit of peace and quiet and the birds and seals seem to agree. The cottage is clean, well equipped and well set out, and is obviously very well loved. The wood burning stove was a bit of a treat for us and we got a decent fire going on each night of our stay. Skye itself is the most beautiful place to visit and the walks and scenery are breathtaking. There were a couple of household faults during our stay (that will be dealt with I'm sure), but nothing that spoilt our enjoyment of a memorable holiday.

“A great little lochside cottage with magnificent views.”

Reviewed 10 Jun 2015

This was just the cottage for four people in Skye for a week's walking. We had a friendly welcome from Dawn and thereafter had all we needed indoors and outdoors. We shall particularly remember our local walks - around the An Aird peninsula, along Loch Sligachan, up Ben Tianavaig and, via the CalMac ferry, on the island of Raasay. Further afield we particularly enjoyed the Glamaig Round, The Old Man of Storr, the Talsiker distillery, Glen Brittle and the boat trip from Elgol to Loch Coruisk. Our dog also enjoyed the week despite having to spend much of it on a lead as there were sheep everywhere. The cottage itself is stylish, practical, warm(underfloor heating) and very well equipped. It is also very well located both for walking and access to Portree. We have stayed in many cottages and this has to be one of the best. We were very sorry when our week came to an end.
