    A lovely cottage for exploring Skye. Warm and comfortable. Pity the weather didn't allow us to enjoy the garden more. We loved the sitting area with the view on the landing and the large new sitting room. Yes the ceilings are low upstairs but we're all tall and it wasn't a problem.

    Absolutely beautiful house! Cottage is too small a word. Very well finished and equipped a real home from home. The Kota in the garden is an absolute gem. I am already rebooking for October. I just loved it.

    Lots of positives to this holiday cottage. We had a really lovely winter escape at Rowan Tree Cottage. The snug room with fire was amazing as was being able to BBQ in the hit in the garden! Was lovely and clean and warm with all the facilities we needed. Only small grumble would be the concrete hard mattress in the bedroom!

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments about our house and we are really glad you enjoyed your stay. Your comments on the bed mattress are taken and accepted! The mattress is in fact only 3 months old but is much firmer than we expected so has already been replaced two weeks after your visit. If you do ever return to stay with us I am sure you will appreciate the difference. Thanks again.

    The only down side to the propety is the stairs. The treads are very narrow and there is no proper hand rail or grips. This could prove very difficult because of no toilet up the stairs. Some people with even a slight mobility difficulty will find it dangerous as I did. I feel it should be mentioned in your description of the house facilities.

    We loved our stay at Rowan tree cottage. One of the best equipped cottages we've ever used and the barbecue hut was fab! The setting and location are excellent. Kids loved the stream in the garden and we had a proper "away from it all" break. Highly recommended.

    The best part of this property was the lounge extension - it was really nice and comfortable. The main problem for me was the sloping ceiling in the main (double) bedroom that made getting in/out of the bed without banging your head each time very tiresome. As this is a converted crofters cottage the rooms are quite small and could really benefit from some improved lighting particularly in the bathroom and kitchen. We didn't use the indoor BBQ hut but I can imagine that would be a lot of fun for families to use on a rainy day. The location of the property is very good as it's not too far from the mainland and you are only a few minutes away from Broadford with its excellent Co-op store and fuel station.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on our property. We are sorry you found the traditional ceiling in the double bedroom inconvenient. The sloping roof is shown clearly in the pictures on the website and although I am not as tall as you (I recall your height from your kind comments in the visitors book). I am nearly six feet and whilst not perfect it’s not too much of a hindrance. That said the other side of the double bed and indeed the 3 other beds are full height so perhaps you could have simply stayed on the other side of the double bed or in other of the other bedrooms? The new LED bulbs we had installed a few months before your visit (so much for lasting 20 years!) had clearly failed in the bathroom and kitchen and it’s just a pity you didn’t let us know during your stay, as they were immediately replaced after your visit by the housekeeper. Best wishes for your future travels.

    Good cottage, well equipped, comfortable, clean and very peaceful despite being reasonably close to the 'main' road. Although we knew there was only one bathroom, on reflection we required more than one bathroom so it's a shame this cottage doesn't have two bathrooms. We enjoyed the bbq and ate in there on a few occasions. Was too windy for al fresco dining, so this was perfect!

    I used Rowan Tree Cottage as a base for kayaking around Skye, the location was ideal and the property did not disappoint. I would recommend this to anyone looking for somewhere to stay on Skye. I certainly will be back.

    Well equipped and comfortable cottage near to lovely walks and surrounded by the Skye scenery. Another bath/shower would make it perfect,
