“Perfect piece of Skye”
Reviewed 20 May 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We stayed at Green Pastures for 1 week in mid May. Sadly we did not get great weather, in fact when we arrived late at night on Saturday it had already started blowing a severe gale which did not subside until Monday. This did not ruin our holiday. We loved sitting in the living room with the log fire on Sunday, watching the scenery and sea change in matters of minutes. Very dramatic. The cottage was very homely and made us feel welcomed straight away. Beautiful stunning views over loch Snizort, with sea eagles hovering over it.
The cottage is well located in Waternish peninsula, away from everything with no sound, well except the sheep in the morning and the cuckoos. It has everything that you could need and more, very comfortable and warm.

Away from the cottage, you can easily drive to Stein, Portree and anywhere else around the island. There are plenty of walks to do too.

“A homely and well appointed cottage, overlooking beautiful views and with plenty to do - it was awesome, we will return.”

We stayed at Green Pastures Cottage for a fortnight in summer 2010 and could only tear ourselves away by promising that we would return again soon. The cottage was very well appointed with everything we could need, from DVDs and board games to binoculars and brochures. The atmosphere was homely and comfortable but with a newly fitted kitchen and bathroom it also had all the modern conveniences. The owners were really friendly and helpful when we contacted them, and the photos and ornaments around the cottage as well as notes and recommended walks and activities made us feel like we were staying there as friends of the family. The weather being varied, meant that although we only had a few days when we could explore the beautiful island, we also felt more than happy just staying home. There was so much to see from the large picture window overlooking the sea - we saw deer in the croft several times and also 4 Golden Eagles all out at the same time. On dry days we took advantage of the forestry track by the cottage to walk to the local pub in Stein - a short but very scenic walk, and also took a boat trip from there to watch the nearby seals. We even ventured on some of the longer walks, finding we were fitter than we thought! We took several day trips around the island and to the mainland, taking advantage of the beautiful scenery of Skye whilst visiting some of the attractions recommended in the many brochures and leaflets provided. The cottage was large enough for us to comfortably accommodate our family of 4, but would also be ideal for a couple. This was a perfect base for exploring the area, visiting attractions further afield, as recommended by the many brochures and leaflets, or just staying in and gazing out at the flora and fauna. If you love the rugged scenery of Scotland, the wildlife, walking or even driving, then we would definitely recommend this lovely cottage as a great holiday home from home.

“A Beautiful Place”
Reviewed 16 May 2012 for a stay in August 2011

We spent 5 lovely days in this beautiful cottage on Skye. The cottage was fully equipped for a comfortable stay. All facilities were working properly, it was clean and especially the amazing view over the sea was impressing. The area around the cottage is very quiet with only a few neighbours.

This cottage is an ideal place for relaxing and enjoying a quiet holiday.

“A lovely cottage in a magical landscape”
Reviewed 15 May 2012 for a stay in September 2010

This was our first trip to Skye and we were very pleased with the comfortable cottage and the breathtaking views out to sea. The kitchen and bath were modern and everything was there to make our stay enjoyable. This is a fairly remote area, but we had no trouble finding it and the walks and bird/wildlife watching were fantastic. The owner had created a lovely garden for us to enjoy, as well.
Pick up groceries in Portree on your way here and you will be all set. There is also a nice inn restaurant nearby in Stein.

“This place couldn't be better!”
Reviewed 15 May 2012 for a stay in January 2012

We stayed here over New Years and the place was just the perfect retreat! Beautiful views over the bay, watching the snow, rain and sun pass by, underfloor heating in kitchen and bathroom and a little stove.
We cooked big feasts nearly every night as the kitchen is really well equipped - you can really feel that this is not your usual holiday home, but that Helen and Bob made it nice also for themselves - this place was just very very cosy and comfortable - would love to go back!!
