This cottage is a well furnished home and the owner stays close by so in case there is a question he is easily reached. (We had a question about the washing machine and he popped right over and showed us how to use it). It is a wonderful machine, by the way and better yet, there is a separate dryer! Other Americans traveling in the UK will appreciate what that means! The house has two bedrooms, one large bath and a fully appointed kitchen. Large TV in the living room. My only complaint would be with the mattresses in the room with double beds. They might be okay for children but my husband and I, being senior citizens, found them a bit uncomfortable.
The cottage is in a lovely rural area and we took some nice walks around the countryside.There are friendly sheep who will greet you at the gate. It is fairly close to Portree but you must have a car to get there.
The owner, Stuart, was very friendly and helpful and even left us a carton of milk to get us started. Loved this cottage and I highly recommend it.
Kerr Cottage is possibly the best self-catering location we've ever booked on our multiple trips to Scotland. First of all, Stuart, the owner, is very friendly and helpful. We especially appreciated his tips on walks which could be enjoyed right out the front door. Kerr Cottage is absolutely delightful. It feels like "home" the minute you walk in the front door. Everything worked perfectly, and everything we needed was available. I enjoyed the interesting artwork displayed throughout the cottage....even the pull down shade in the bathroom had a lovely painting on it! The garden out front is quite lovely. We never tired of the ever changing views out the windows.....of both the garden and the water and hills beyond. We found the location to be perfect for us....remote and quiet yet an easy (and beautiful) drive to both Sligachan and Portree for good meals and/or shopping.
Communication from owner prompt, courteous and detailed from start to finish. Cottage was comfortable, well equipped clean, roomy and a great place for our 3 dogs with a large utility room and and enclosed decent sized garden.
Fantastic views from every window. Cottage ideally placed to see the island.
Owner on hand for any queries.
Would definitely recommend to others.
The cottage was lovely and the area is very peaceful
Our dog Max loved the large garden which was perfect as it was enclosed
There is everything you need in the cottage which was bigger than it looked on the photos.
It is a short journey away from Portree and easy to find with the sat nav
Many Thanks for a lovely stay
Isobelle, Rob & Max
Located 15 minutes south of Portree along a wonderfully rural single track into the historic Breas ... so a GREAT place to explore all of Skye from and a better place to return to after a day of hiking or exploring ...The cottage itself is so much more than the pictures, which were wonderful to start with ... No matter where you looked, gardens, towards the water, the mountains .... picture postcard perfect. And the owner - Stuart - just a great helpful guy ... The cottage was larger than the pictures indicated and so wonderfully comfortable ... You can hear the breezes, you can see so many more stars, and Stuart's garden - are all so wonderful ... The kitchen is well equipped, and the WiFi was more than just adequate (online instructor running a course from the cottage <smile>). Great for one or two couples, or a small family ... Portree has all the amenities, but Kerr cottage (and Stuart) share with you the heart of Skye ...
