Location description from owner

The Scotland region

Skye is the most important centre for Gaelic culture outside of the Western Isles, and almost half the population speak Gaelic fluently; the Gaelic College on Sleat (Skye's most southern tip) is the most important in Scotland. For a sample of the local culture, visitors to the island during mid July can experience the two-week long Skye and Lochalsh Festival - the Feis an Eilean. One of the most popular sights on Skye is the Cuillin ridge, made up of jagged snow-topped peaks, which can be seen from miles around, and are suitable for experienced walkers. The other main attraction on the island is the unusual rock formations of the Trotternish Peninsula, where the pillars and pinnacles are at their most dramatic in the Quiraing above Staffin Bay, on the east coast. Whilst on the island, the capital Portree is worth a visit, with its picturesque fishing harbour encircled with restaurants, and a mile or so out of town, visitors can also experience the Aros Centre.

Glendale

10 minute walk to the pier with mackerel fishing at high tide. A beach can be found at Glendale or further afield is the coral beach at Claigan, Dunvegan.

There are many enjoyable walks near the cottage including a lovely walk out to Neist Point lighthouse, where if you are lucky you may spot Minke whales and other wild life. If you enjoy swimming outdoors then try Glenbrittle’s magical Faerie Pools, or try kayaking, sailing, fishing or scuba diving in the crystal clear water around Skye's coastline. There are numerous boat trips around Skye to see the wildlife and other islands including a trip on the Bella Jane from Elgol to access Loch Corruisk.

“Beautiful location”

Reviewed 1 Aug 2013

I visited Waterfall view, for 8 days with a friend and my two Kids. It's definitley of the grid but that was what we were looking for. Wonderful serene and beautiful Location. House equipped with everything you need, clean and ready for us. Except for the kitchen, there the cupboards need a thru scrubing again. Thank you

Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to write a review, it is appreciated. We're pleased you had an enjoyable stay at the cottage and on Skye. We have taken note of your comments regarding the kitchen and it has been dealt with. We look forward to welcoming you back for a stay in the future.

“Spacious 5* home”

Reviewed 25 Mar 2013

Access to the property was very easy. This welcoming, spacious 5* home was a joy to arrive to after a very long journey. The property is clean, light & airy and well maintained with fantastic views over the Loch and Outer Hebrides. If you like walking there are plenty of walks to do. Skye is easy to travel around by car. The 3 Chimneys restaurant is always very busy and difficult to book a reservation. The local shop has basic provisions which is more than adequate to get started with. Dunvegan castle & seals are worth a visit.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review, much appreciated. We're glad you enjoyed the cottage and Skye. It is always best to book with The Three Chimneys in advance of your stay.
