Guest Comments

"A lovely cottage in a gorgeous spot. Owner very helpful especially in finding it as it’s a little fiddly, especially if like us you are off the bus rather than by car. Would recommend."

Peter, August 2021

"Great location, well equipped and with plenty of space. The owners were really helpful and responsive to queries."

Andrew, August 2021

"We enjoyed our stay very much and found the house to be spacious, comfortable and well equipped. We never tired of the view of the harbour and watching the ferry come in and out. Thank you."

Victoria, June 2021

"Great base with a wonderful view and so peaceful. Harbour out front and views of buzzards and eagles out the back, fantastic!"

Roger, November 2020

"Really enjoyed our week in Rallidae. The view over Uig Bay is stunning. We had an amazing sunset one evening.It's a great centre for visiting the north of Skye with its lovely walks and beaches and a lovely house to come back to every day. We felt very relaxed and at home here. The house had obviously been thoroughly cleaned and great care had been taken against covid. Though the village is small we found the shops well stocked with everything we needed."

Margaret, October 2020

"A lovely cottage, immaculately clean, great comfy beds, equipped with everything you need, the local area is fantastic for great walks and the scenery is magnificent, Portree is only 20mins by car 30mins on the bus for a day out."

Gary, September 2020

"The location of Rallidae is superb. You could spend a lot of time just looking at the view. The cottage is well equipped and spacious. It is a very peaceful relaxing place."

Alice, September 2020

"A lovely cottage on the Isle of Skye. Fantastic views over uig harbour. Would recommend. We had a lovely stay, communication was good and property had everything that we needed for our holiday. Only negatives (both not due to the owner), 1) previous person who stayed there damaged a hair dryer cable and the tried to hide the damage. 2) the road going to the cottage is quite narrow and we have a large 4x4, the hedge caused a few light scratches on the side of the vehicle. However highland council cut the hedge towards the end of the week. Maybe it got overgrown due to COVID."

Chengyuan, August 2020

"Only knew we were going to this cottage on our journey to Skye. Our original cottage was cancelled en route. We were pleased with the cottage. Very cosy, clean, comfortable and with an amazing view."

Susan, March 2020
