    We loved this wee cottage, it was super cosy with the woodburner and reclining couch! Very clean, warm and well equipped. Comfy king size bed! Great peaceful and remote location with lovely views, perfect place to disconnect and explore the island. Our dog loved playing in the garden and relaxing in front of the fire. Definitely recommended, we will be back!

    Excellent place to stay, would definitely stay again. Lovely location, very remote, but that's a good thing.

    Lovely cottage in a beautiful location. Excellent for exploring the north of the island.

    Lovely location. Beautifully presented and looked after. I've scored 8 for comfort and equipment as the sitting room furniture was a bit 'tired' and the cooker switches were worn but other than that the cottage had all the equipment we needed for a quiet week away. The 8 score for local amenities as there weren't any! Which again was fine for us and we search out properties in remote places and the cottage certainly fulfilled that criteria. Ideally situated for exploring the Trotternish district with Uig and Portree not far away for supplies.
