“good place, lovely position”
Reviewed 11 November 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Lots of space. All rooms except the kitchen have stunning sea views. Clean and well equipped.

The down sides: poor lighting in the living room and inefficient heating (perhaps it did work well but we didn't manage to work out how to control it).

“Central location, great views, big bedrooms; wouldn't hesitate to recommend.”

This is a great rental property. It is situated very close to town centre yet quite peaceful. Views from the upstairs bedrooms are lovely. All three bedrooms are spacious. It is furnished well throughout and spotlessly clean. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property. Sue is very easy to deal with and extremely pleasant.

“Good Cottage”
Reviewed 20 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed for a week in Brightwater Cottage. The owner Sue was very easy to deal with from the initial booking onwards. There is parking across the road from the cottage. The spaces do fill up quickly particularly around tea time but we were fortunately never stuck without a space though maybe not just directly across the road from the cottage.
As someone who used to own a holiday home the cottage felt like we had 'come home'. It is very clean and the kitchen is well equipped. The tv has freesat and all the UK channels anyone would need particularly on a wet day! The wifi worked well. It is deceptively large inside and the rooms are all of a good size.
The cottage is a short walk into the centre of Portree and there is a coastal walk a short distance in the other direction. Would recommend.

“Perfect location to base your Skye vacation!”

Owner responsive and accommodating. In the town of Portree on waterfront byway with spectacular views of the bay and Ben Tianavaig. Close to town center and 2 minute walk to restaurants and grocery, but around the bend from all the commotion keeps the evenings quiet. Small sign on front of cottage identifies it as a rental. We had a few knocks on door from people looking for a place to stay. One person walked in the front door before we could answer the knock. Just lock the door. It's a great spot. I would recommend to friends and family and easily return myself for a long stay.

The cottage is not advertised as having a garden for guest use. We don't promote it as being accessible or managed as it very steep ground at the back of house.
