We had a great stay at Kirsty's Cottage. The house was extremely homely and comfortable and very clean. All the linen was great quality and the kitchen was very well equipped. My son slept in the sun room where he was very comfortable on the sofa bed, and the real bonus was that we set up our telescope there and saw otters out on the loch behind the house 7 times during our week long stay! Dawn and Andrew were great hosts - very friendly and welcoming and the house is very well located for Portree and exploring the rest of Skye. We saw lots of wildlife on Skye during our stay including the otters, lots of seals, sea eagles and lots of other birds.

We would definitely recommend Kirsty's Cottage to family and friends, and would love to stay again in the future,

This is realy an amazing cottage. The location is very remote, but yet easy to reach. The views from the cottage and the nice garden are wonderful. The mountains, the sea, the clouds, the sun and yes...also the rain (it adds to the magic!). We saw a juvenile sea eagle and some seals from the cottage!!
The cottage itself is very cosy, beautifully decorated and has everything you could wish for! Loved the wood burning stove in the evening.
We stayed for one week and would love to come back here one day, because Skye has a lot to offer. And even if it didn't another week in Kirsty's cottage would be a treat!

“This place was superb.”
Reviewed 7 July 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Kirsty's Cottage was immaculate when we arrived (it was a little like entering a modern show house!) and had everything you could possibly require. We had a week of very mixed weather and much appreciated the underfloor heating at times. The sunroom was quite spacious, had fabulous views, and my mobile on EE worked well there. Had there been better weather, we would have really enjoyed the garden which was, like the house, beautifully designed to be attractive functional and very comfortable.
There was plenty scope for walking in the area and our dogs had lots of good walks on both the nearby shore and the quiet roads.

“Perfect place”
Reviewed 29 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We have just returned from our holiday on the isle of skye and we are so pleased we chose to stay at kirsty's cottage.

The cottage is very homely and cosey and beautifully decorated, we have even taken some ideas about decorating back with us! We met Dawn who was very helpful in getting us to the right place and making us feel welcome. The cottage also has everything you need including a good range of dvds, Sky, washing machine and dryer. The weather was unfortunately too warm to test the wood burner and sit in front of the fire which was a shame! We would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone looking to holiday in the Isle of Skye.

The cottage is close enough to Portree for the restaurants, shops but also far enough away to have some peace and solitude. And being central on the Isle made travelling around much less time consuming.
We had a lovely week and it was made even more special by staying in a lovely cottage with a great view. Thank you to Dawn and Andrew for letting out your cottage for others to enjoy!
