“Perfect cottage in Skye!”
Reviewed 12 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We stayed at Skeabost Cottage for four nights at the start of March. It was the perfect place for a relaxing holiday, especially when the weather wasn't great. It was also in a good location, about 5 mins drive from Portree.
I'd highly recommend!

“Skeabost Wood Cottage - Brilliant place”
Reviewed 14 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014
2
people found this review helpful

We stayed at Skeabost Wood Cottage in early November, the cottage is absolutely superb, extremely well equipped and is well situated for driving to the best parts of the island.

The owners couldn't have been more helpful, we had a small (self inflicted) problem and despite the late hour they quickly contacted us directly to make sure that we were OK.

We can wholeheartedly recommend Skeabost Wood Cottage to anybody wishing to spend some time on Skye.

“Inspirational and beautiful holiday cottage”
Reviewed 9 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

person found this review helpful

The Skeabost Wood Cottage is super nice, new, and a very comfortable cottage. When we were looking for a place to stay we found this gem just a few miles outside Portree. The cottage was written up in an architectural web site, thebuildingblox.com, with an article titled, "A SMALL HOME ON SCOTLAND’S ISLE OF SKYE". As the article says, this small house on the Isle of Skye in Scotland is a prime example of excellent small home design. The cottage design and furnishings are very well done, and we hope to return for a longer stay in the future. A+

“Just Perfect”
Reviewed 7 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014
1
person found this review helpful

We have just returned from a 4 night stay in Skeabost Wood Cottage and can honestly say that we've never had a holiday rental accommodation quite like it. It immediately felt like a home from home. Clever design is evident throughout the cottage but not at the cost of incredible practicality and comfort. It had absolutely everything we would look for in a holiday rental and was warm and inviting on our late evening arrival - we immediately settled in. The location was perfect for exploring Skye and although close to a road, the cottage was nestled in amongst trees and so was very private and quiet with great views. We won't be looking elsewhere for accommodation for our next trip to Skye.
