The Anchorage - right on the water's edge in Skye
Always something interesting passing by. This is the Hebridean Princess luxury cruise ship.
Always dramatic!
Fishing boats always passing
Otters on the rocks by the house
Wonderful summer days on Skye
The small fishing harbour is just 30 seconds walk away.

Castle Moil is a nice half hour round walk from the house- just beware the tide!
Aga cooking at its best!

“Lovely house”
Reviewed 18 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The anchorage is a wonderful house. It's cosy, well equipped and truly feels like a home from home. We spent most of our time looking out the window at the ever changing sea scape- birds, otters, boats, submarines. Poured rain every day so we had lots of time indoors! Also, its proximity to the Skye bridge means it's easy access. We made it to Plockton in 20 mins- beautiful!! Highly recommend the Anchorage to anyone booking a holiday in Skye.

Thanks for your review Tracey. I'm glad you enjoyed the house and sorry about the weather. I had been wonderful and but guess you were unlucky, although I'm glad you saw lots from the house. I promise you sunshine next time! All the best , Richard.

“Short holiday”
Reviewed 11 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

After staying at a number of different holiday lets in Skye over the years this wasn't one of the better ones. While I enjoy staying in rentals that have a family feel to them this really did appear to be someone elses home where little regard has been made to those fee paying guests. In particular the shower in the bathroom could only be described as "just" working. Pipes exposed throughout the property where repair works had been completed previously and left in what looked like an incomplete fashion. Kitchen lacking items, spatula, sharp knives to name a couple. Overall a good location with fantastic views but expensive in comparison to other rental properties and definitely on the more run down side of the scale.

Thanks for your review. Anyone reading this may wish to know that the house has now been completely renovated and the more recent mostly 5* reviews hopefully give a better impression of how the house is now although all suggestions are taken fully into account. Enjoy!

“Perfect lochside retreat”
Reviewed 22 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

A delightful house on the edge of Lochalsh. Nicely furnished with everything you could possible need. Total relaxation guaranteed. Even otters on the doorstep - well the rocks outside anyway. Great value and comfort. A lovely village location also. Wish I could have stayed longer. Just sitting watching the boats go by was enough.
