    Perfect place to get away from it all and loads of views. The house is big enough for 6 people, although we were only a couple, and had all the necessary equipment and utensils. We would have liked some more cupboard space but this didn’t detract from our enjoyment. The beds were spacious and comfortable and the shower was excellent. The road to the property had some pot holes but we soon got used to it. The gem though was the location and view. The caretaker was on hand but also left us to just enjoy the week.

    There was paint smell in the cottage, one shower for six people, one of the toilet was broken, water pressure was too low that if kitchen tap is running you wont have water in any other tap. Furniture condition is so poor in sitting room, wifi facility is just a joke. Pets were allowed in cottage and hair were not cleaned from carpet. Too expensive for the facilities provided. We booked for a week but couldnt stay there for more than 4 nights due to paint smell. Please let people know about the toilet clearly . I m sorry but i wont recomend 7greep to anyone more than 3 people. 🙏

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We must firstly say how disappointed we are that you did not enjoy your holiday. Your comments are completely out of line with those of other guests that have stayed at the property previously. Addressing your concerns, the toilet was working perfectly before your stay. Upon your departure, the caretaker reported the toilet as being broken. Following your comments, I visited the House and the Wi-Fi worked as expected (there is no fibre optic network in north-western Skye). We were able to use the internet to stream Netflix, use three computers, three phones and stream music through Alexa devices simultaneously. It is possible there was a faint smell of paint in the house. We try to keep the house looking fresh so we did paint the trim in the week before you arrived. The rentals on the cottage are so frequent, we have to squeeze in painting when we can. The smell of paint was not overwhelming. As to the condition of the property and the furnishings, please look at the recent reviews. We take great pride in the property and endeavour to keep it as the highest quality as possible.

    Fantastic location nice clean bedding but the rest of the house is in a poor state of repair and needs a good clean. Overall disappointing considering the price. This is not the first review like this so the owners are clearly not taking any notice.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; I am so sorry you had a bad experience. The house is not in a poor state of repair and cleanliness is not a problem, the other reviews back this up. My caretakers and I strive to make the home comfortable and clean for every guest and I feel previous reviews give a more balanced view of the house.

    A beautifully restored cottage renovated to a high standard. Homely, well equipped and comfortable. The views alone from this cottage make us want to return! The site is well off the main road on its own little peninsula. Wild life and sheep all around. If you are looking for peace and quiet away from people in a very comfortable setting then this is the place. We will definitely return! Thank you!

    We were impressed by the stunning location of the house on a private peninsula surrounded by water on 3 sides. We also liked to share the ground with around 70 sheep and with a hare in the garden. It's a very nice, renovated, typical cottage house with a well-selected interior. The kitchen is really big and well-equipped. Overall we really liked the cottage and have spent a great time there, but the biggest negative point for us was the lack of cleanliness. The floors seemed really dirty and dusty - the stone floors and the carpets. The second negative aspect was the bathrooms. There is only one shower (in the ground floor) which should be renovated (and not just cover the mould with a piece of glass) and is very small. We always like to have the bedrooms completely dark at night, which was impossible with the decorative curtains. All in all it's a beautful house in a wonderful location that needs a renovation of the bathroom in the groundfloor, maybe a rearrangement of the bathroom in the upper floor and a rigorous and regular cleaning! The short weekly cleaning on the changeover days is not enough!

    Highly recommended cottage in a wonderfully secluded location with a stunning backdrop of sea, hills and mountains. All the bedrooms are lovingly furnished and it has a real homely feel to the whole place. The giant lounge window is a great place to look out across the sea onto the changing day and evening. A real gem.

    7 Greep is a lovely holiday rental in a croft area about a 20 minute drive from Dunvegan Castle and Gardens, not far in miles, but the ever-present potholes in many single track roads on the island necessitated driving slowly, and this area was no exception. The views from every window were amazing, and in the living room the windows made one feel outside, except cozy and out of the wind and rain. With the heating system, wood stove and auxiliary heaters, we rode out a few big storms in comfort. The television is a big, bright flat screen model that we totally enjoyed, and the music system with Echo and Dot playing music in response to voice requests was so much fun that we ordered ourselves a Dot. The kitchen worked well, although the compact dishwasher necessitated doing two loads a day instead of one because we cooked all our meals in house. The upstairs bedroom suited us well, but we like showers, so we used the walk-in shower downstairs. The bed was comfortable, a feature important to us. The house is in a crofting area, so we enjoyed just walking about the area and watching the tide go in and out. Dunvegan Castle and Gardens was a highlight, as was the Coral Beach walk, and the two church walk in Dunvegan town. We had a lovely week there.
