Cottage very comfortable & cosy, had everything we needed for a week away. Location is fantastic, beautiful views across the Loch & we were really lucky with the weather. There is a lovely garden with toys for the children to play with and games/dvds in the house too.
Portree is a 25 min drive away with nearest supermarket there. There is a small shop & café in Struan and Dunvegan is 15 minutes away.
We loved it here and hope to come back soon :-)
We've stayed at these cottages several times and have always found them clean, comfortable and well-equipped. They're comfortable even in miserable weather, which does occur from time to time on Skye. We've always had a warm welcome from Irina and Tony, the owners, too.
Bracadale is a very good base from which to get to walks from Sligachan or Glenbrittle or Orbost and it's also well placed for touring. Portree (for food shopping, restaurants etc) is about 10 miles away over an interesting single track mountain road and despite Bracadale being on a "main" road, it's a very quiet location.
We've actually been able to watch Golden Eagles (not Tourist Eagles - buzzards) at the back of the cottage while we've been eating breakfast.
I'm sure we'll return to Bracadale.

We had a great week at the Heron cottage. It was perfect for our family. The garden was great for the children (ages 3 and 6) to play outside safely. The cottage was comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook most meals for the week. The wood stove was great to have on chilly evenings. The view was beautiful and the location was convenient as a base to see sights all over Skye.
