I have recently returned from a wonderful short break spent with my father at Hillside Cottage, Dunvegan. The Cottage itself was outstanding very comfortable and spacious and spotlessly clean. The Bed was the most comfortable bed I have slept in with quality fresh bed linen. The kitchen has every appliance you could need and again everything brand new and very clean. Central Heating, ample hot water and a Log Burning Stove in the Lounge make the Cottage feel really homely and cosy. There is a garden area to the front of the house with a seating area and ample parking. Hillside Cottage is ideally situated to tour the whole island and Spencer and Gail could not have done more to make us feel welcome and ensure we enjoyed our stay. If you are looking for self catering accommodation on the isle of Skye you must give this place a try.

I visited the Isle of Skye with my wife and six year old daughter and stayed for 4 nights in Hillside Cottage. I booked Hillside based purely on the advertisement, the pictures of the cottage and one previous review. As this is not a review os Skye but of the Cottage itself I would just like to say that staying at Hillside was simply fantastic... its just like new, everything is spotlessly clean and there's everything you need to make your stay a memorable one. The kitchen is great with super white goods and cooker and includes a large dishwasher and plenty of utensils you would ever need. Bedrooms are lovely and extremely confortable; bathroom is lovely with superb shower and lounge is just that.. great for lounging in. TV has plenty of channels for all and there's even an XBOX if you're into that. To be able to stay in such wonderful surroundings spending the day discovering the island only to come home to Hillside was the icing on the cake for us. From the first day I felt like I had been living there for months not hours; Gail and Spencer were great and we took up there suggestions for walks and boat trips etc from day one. The location of the cottage was also perfect for us and we found getting around the island really easy from here. I have never bothered to review anywhere I have every stayed before.. until now
Gail and Spencer have a real gem of a place here and we will be back again for sure.
We booked Hillside cottage for a week at the end of January. The cottage was very warm and the wood burning stove was just perfect at the end of the day exploring the Island. Beds were really comfortable, shower was great. The cottage really was a home from home and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay and was very clean. Lots of places are closed at this time of year, that did not bother us, knowing that we were coming back to a lovely warm quiet cottage was magic. The owners were very helpful too, and they advised us which walks to go on. Would I recommend this to family and friends.....yes, we liked it so much that we have booked again for September.
