Just back from another visit to Skye and our fourth stay at the Studio in Knott. As ever, Joyce and Brain were their usual friendly welcoming selves and the studio was spotless. The view from the studio is beautiful and there's the chance of spotting the local otters, herons, long tailed tits and sparrowhawks as well as the occasional sea eagle and porpoise visitors. The location is ideal for exploring northern Skye and we would recommend the studio to anyone visiting Skye.
This was the perfect place to stay. As if the Isle of Skye wasn't beautiful enough, to have accommodation as lovely as this in the most perfect location at the edge of a loch was the icing on the cake. To be able to lie in bed watching the most stunning sunsets which went on until after 3.30am was amazing. We saw at least 14 species of birds on the tree outside the window, we enjoyed the sun trap outside the door at the end of a day walking and were able to sit in the beautiful much loved garden enjoying a G&T. Joyce and Brian are the perfect hosts giving help and advice when needed. If we are lucky enough to go back to Skye we would have to stay here again, there is still so much still to see. It was so calming and healing, helped of course by the fabulous weather we enjoyed.
We love to get away from city life and could not have picked a better place. The studio was of very high standard with the most comfortable bed we have slept in (we have spent many holidays in self catering so tried many beds!). The studio was compact but ideal for two people with the open plan design making it feel light and larger. The shower and bathroom would not be out of place in a 5 star hotel, a very welcome sight after a days walking.
The view from the window was like a picture post card and kept us occupied many a night looking for wildlife. We had sunshine every day and the little patio area in front of the studio was a sun trap which we fully used thanks to the reclining chairs provided.
If you like to get away from it all this is the place for you and at one of the best prices we have seen for the Isle of Skye. All you can hear is the sound of nature, you can't even hear any road noise.
Thanks for a great holiday.

Lovely location in north of Skye. Well equipped and lovely view from the property. Nice bathroom and good cooking facilities.
We stayed at Knott for the second time this year and had a very comfortable time. The studio is just the right size for two people. It is modern, well equipped, warm, clean and tidy and the view from the bed looking out to Loch Snizort through the large window is wonderful. There's also a good wifi signal and so you can check the weather forecast regularly!
Knott is also very conveniently located on the Portree-Dunvegan road and it is easy to get to all locations in the north half of Skye. We will stay there again next time we come to Skye.
