We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Moeraki. The house is very large and there was plenty of space for our family of five. The house is right on the shore and the view from the living room out the patio doors is fantastic. We would definitely recommend this house and will be back if we are in Skye again.
We stayed at Moeraki from 24 June for one week. What a fabulous house! Photos don't really do it justice. It's much larger e.g. All mod cons and more. The views are exceptional - the house is literally on / at the seashore and went swimming (wetsuit!) most mornings. The hosts consider everything and all you have do is turn up and enjoy! There are plentiful cafes and restaurants in Broadford but be aware of booking notably in high season which june is not. August is that month. Local Coop was about 15-20mins walk away with petrol and cash (but does run out so again watch out in high season). You can get 'cash back' at coop if you buy over £30 (I think altho someone said it was £50 but not my experience). We did kayaking at north end island with Whitewave and definitely recommend that. Also Staffin Bay was really lovely and wonderful rock formations to clamber / climb over. Talisker Bay is a little overrated but still worth walk. Walk to Camusneray bay on South Island. Near Elgol was really marvellous. We preferred south of island overall. Really untouched and lesser commercialised / touristy. Visit Sleat peninsular and cycle to Elgol or car and hike. It's really lovely esp with backdrop of Cuillins. Now ... that takes me to weather - it was very mixed! We did have few days of sunshine but to be frank was mostly grey skies - quite mild temp tho. Caused mainly we believe by hill ranges (Skye is Glencoe on steroids!). The beaches are pebbly and grey / volcanic ash which with grey skies tend to make it feel quite grey - all day! It's not eg aka Uists or Harris where white (literally) sands provide light reflection upwards regardless of sky colour. Skye is a lovely island - it's infrastructure tho sadly is creaking with tourist volume and there is a sense of intolerance around the businesses. They are trying madly to conceal it to their credit - but it is there. The Highland councils will really need to do something to disperse people volumes e.g. Do deal with Cal Mac to get more trips to outer Hebrides. There's only 2 passages a day during peak season and at early / end day. One in middle would allow people to do day tripping eg. Anyways back to Moeraki - go stay - you'll thoroughly enjoy irrespective of weather & activities!
The cottage is in a fabulous location with amazing ever changing views and lots of wildlife, with the water coming up to the garden at high tide. Well equipped with everything you could want and really comfy beds with stunning views from the windows.There is a lovely walk to the pier in Broadford with views in the distance of the Skye bridge.The cottage is ideally situated for touring Skye but also for visiting the mainland. The Co-op in Broadford is very handy with a petrol station too and the best view of any supermarket car park that I have seen.This is definitely one of the best cottages we have had the pleasure to stay in.
The location is amazing - the sea is on the doorstep. Each night, other views. We enjoyed staying at Moeraki very much. A must for everyone staying in Broadford. A lot of restaurants in de neigbourhood, but also the supermarket is very comfortably.
What a great property. Situated right on the shore, at high tide the sea comes to the private gate to the beach. Views are outstanding, sunsets dominate two windows of the lounge and completely distract your attention from the TV.
Short walking distance to restaurants, a longer walk to the centre of Broadford with all other amenities.
Standard of equipment unbelievably high. Great TV, music system in kitchen, even has a food processor !
Would highly recommend this property, it's even better than I expected from their website. Would be my first choice for a return visit with a group, there were 5 adults in my group.
