Getting around

Skye offers a network of public transport buses. There is a bus from Portree to Dunvegan that stops near Fairy Bridge at the Waternish junction. Unfortunately there is no public transport onto the peninsula and to 'The Smiddy'. We strongly recommend that you travel by car to make the most of your holiday on Skye. Many of the most beautiful spots and popular visitor attractions are not, or not easily, reached by public transport. The nearest train station is in Kyle of Lochalsh. The nearest airport is in Inverness.

Interaction with guest

Carmen moved from Germany to Scotland in 2007. She is a keen traveller and enthusiastic tour guide with a particular love for all things Scottish: the land, the people, the language, the literature and the music. Carmen’s partner John has a lifelong love of wildlife, especially for birds and wild flowers. If he is not out and about birdwatching, he is looking after our wildlife friendly garden. We live on site, in the main house right behind you. If you should have any questions or problems during your stay, we will be happy to help. Unless you contact us, we will respect your privacy at all times.

Very Good

“Just perfect to escape and unwind”

Reviewed 23 Oct 2017

The Smiddy is wonderful in every way. Set in a great location with stunning views and a high- end well thought out, spacious interior. Carmen and John are wonderful hosts evident from the first warm and enthusiastic welcome. Carmen's design of the interior and all the finishing touches make it extra special. The attention to detail is remarkable, Carmen really has thought of everything and every cupboard that is opened delights with the level of equipment, goodies and layout.. We cannot recommend The Smiddy highly enough, it's a must visit - you will love it as much as we did. Already planning our next visit! Thank you so much to Carmen and John x

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your fantastic review! It was a real pleasure to be your hosts. We are thrilled and honoured that you liked our Smiddy so much. Thank you for leaving the accommodation exceptionally clean and tidy. We are very much looking forward to your next visit. See you soon. John and Carmen x
