“Peace and comfort”
Reviewed 27 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We spent a very peaceful week on Skye with our two collies. Burnside Cottage was fantastic, comfortable, clean and very well equipped. There was nothing you could need that they didn't provide. The location was lovely and there were great places to walk all around.
We would definitely stay here again.
When the calor gas ran out, when we were preparing dinner one evening, the 'housekeeper' was there within minutes to sort it out. Great service.

“Perfect”
Reviewed 20 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

My husband and I went to Burnside Cottage in early May along with my daughter and her labrador Timmy, to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday. We had a wonderful relaxing time and were so comfortable and cosy. The kitchen is superb with everything you could possibly need in it. I was delighted at being able to hang my washing out on the clothes line, lovely to smell everything so fresh. Internet access was excellent, with three of us using iPads at the same time. The recycling was a challenge but it certainly made us rethink where to put things! It was a pleasure for my daughter and I to cook as it really was like being at home. We did not eat out due to my husband's health, but still had fun. Even though it bucketed one day solid, Skye still looked wonderful. The sunsets are amazing and the whole island is stunningly beautiful. We toured around and enjoyed every place we visited.
To sum up, it was a great decision to stay at Burnside, definitely worth every penny. I would recommend this cottage to anyone who wants to get away from it all and relax.

We have just spent a great week at Burnside Cottage.
The house is lovely, so cosy and very comfortable.
The location is fabulous and even although the weather was not kind to us every day, the changing light across the bay provide some beautiful views.
We liked the local pub The Stein Inn and enjoyed some lovely sunsets over a wee tipple.
I would recommend a trip to the Fairy Glen and the Fairy Pools....very pretty.
Hopefully we will return to Skye and Burnside Cottage very soon.

“Absolutely fantastic!”
Reviewed 13 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Burnside cottage is a is fully equiped, very comfortable, extremely clean, great garden and sitting area, great views. There's an east wing and west wing with seperate bathrooms/bedrooms (one en-suite) which is very convenient. The kitchen was great to sit as was of course the lounge. There is also a very comfortable portch where you can sit in the early evenings and watch the beautiful sun-sets. We spent a week there and would have been very happy to stay longer. Definitely to be repeated!
