“Tranquil getaway, surrounded by beautiful scenery.”
Reviewed 10 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We would go back tomorrow if we could!

Waking up in the morning to open the curtains and watch some playful seals while you have breakfast is something quite special. There are plenty of beautiful scenic walks - all of which are detailed as to how to get there by your hosts - we only managed one due to us being there for just two nights. There is absolutely no one around for miles. Portree is not a far drive - maybe 10 minutes - should you be staying longer than a couple of days and need to restock. We will definitely be booking again sometime, we had a great stay!

P.S - unless you have timed your trip to get the ferry at Malaig, head for Lochalsh once you get to Fort William, we missed the last ferry and had to double back, you'll miss out on a really great drive if you do it in the dark!

“A PERFECT RETREAT”
Reviewed 3 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014
1
person found this review helpful

The studio at Knott cottage was the perfect retreat for us. It is a warm, comfortable and very well designed space for two people to relax in. The kitchen is well equipped ,we cooked xmas dinner with no difficulty at all. The bathroom would not be out of place in a 5* hotel and a comfortable bed that was sometimes difficult to get away from.
The fantastic picture window with the seals bobbing about in the bay, the birds large and small and the ever changing view will lure you into sitting for probably much longer than you intended.
Our hosts Joyce and Brian were as friendly and helpful as anyone could be.
The studio is well placed for exploring Skye which is a beautiful island in all weathers.
We highly recommend this accommodation and would hope to return ourselves when we can.

“An Excellent Holiday”
Reviewed 28 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Excellent hospitality and care by Brian and Joyce Heggie, the owners.
The apartment was everything we needed for our stay, light, modern, comfortable and well equipped.
Very peaceful location with lovely views of the loch and countryside.
The flower garden is a delight and the vegetable plot inspirational!
Access to Portree and Dunvegan only 15 minutes' drive.
Good walks and wonderful views.

“One off the bucket list”
Reviewed 25 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We have wanted to visit Skye for several years, so discided this was to be the year to go, as neither of us are getting any younger. A long journey, but so worth the effort.
We were so delighted when we saw the view from our studio window, and must have spent hours over the week, just watching out for the sky and the wildlife.
The studio had every thing 2 people could want over a week, in fact, once you'd got the food in, there was no need to go any where else. We had the lovely garden behind us to wonder in, or just look out of the rear window at.
Joyce and Brian odviously love their home and make you feel they love to share it with you, the little touches such as the dish cloth and washing up liquid already there for use show that.

“Absolutely wonderful!”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The studio was everything we could have hoped for. Excellently and thoughtfully designed to provide what is needful for a relaxing stay. Warm, light, comfortable, easily cleaned. Uncluttered. Plenty of storage space. Good cooking and laundry facilities. Lovely views of the loch. Very helpful hosts.
