“Perfect family getaway”
Reviewed 17 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We had a wonderful stay at Owlswood. The cottage has been recently renovated and is finished to a really high standard. It was so easy for the family to make ourselves at home. If you cant live without technology, the living room has a massive TV with cinema speakers and large DVD selection and the wifi is excellent. Also an added bonus was a signal booster for EE in the house (there is no mobile signal otherwise!). The kitchen has everything you could possibly need including two fridges and two freezers, dishwasher etc. There is also washing and drying facilities. Bathroom and ensuite are both very nice with excellent showers. The bedrooms are large and comfortable with tons of cupboard and drawer storage. Patio doors both in the living room and kitchn lead out onto a patio with seating and BBQ and a large contained woodland garden.
The cottage is ideally placed to explore the north of Skye. Portree for main shops was about 20minutes away. Edinbane itself is small and quiet. There is a good pub 100yds away and we went in to see live music and enjoy a drink. 100yds in the other direction is an excellent kids play park. Across the road is Edinbane pottery studio. This was well worth a visit and the kids enjoyed watching the work.
The owners, Phil and Karen live locally and are on hand should there be any problems (we didn't have any!). They have the personal touch just right and clearly take a lot of pride in the service the provide.
I couldn't fault Owlswood at all and hope to visit again one day. Thoroughly recommended.

“Fabulous Rental, Thank you very much”
Reviewed 23 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Fabulous rental. Karen and Phil the owners are extremely helpful. The property is very spacious, very warm, beautifully decorated and the bath and showers are lovely! We stayed for a week with a baby and a five year old. It was ideally situated to explore the north of Skye. Edinbane Inn next door meant there was somewhere to get meals when you don't fancy cooking, or to stop for a drink.

“Beautiful, spacious, interior and well located”
Reviewed 25 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We had been looking for a large, well located, property with a modern interior for a family holiday and Owlswood exceeded our expectations. It is first class.

Owlswood has been recently reovated and decor and fittings throughout are superb. All rooms are large and the big kitchen/dining room and sitting room are great spaces to relax. There are games and DVDs as well as a great selection of guides and info leaflets on Skye. There's a nice garden area with seating and bbq with a stream and a woodland view, too.

The location is ideal, right next to Edinbane pottery, with the Edinbane Inn a few paces away with great food, bar and local live music several times a week. Between Dunvegan and Portree there is a lot within easy reach. Owners were helpful and gave a few good tips on places to visit.

Would definitely highly recommend. Location, quality of the property and garden more than make up for the lack of mountain/sea view... There's pleanty of that you get to in 2 seconds in Skye!

“Fabulous”
Reviewed 19 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Fabulous place in great location, just 2 mins walk from the Edinbane Inn, which serves great food and drink and has live music 3 times a week. The cottage is finished to a high standard and is very comfortable. Lovely master bedroom with large en suite shower, stunning family bathroom and large kitchen/ dining room. Large lounge with very large tv and selection of DVDs., large outside area with patio & BBQ. Karen and Phil are helpful hosts who are friendly but not intrusive. Would definitely visit again.

“Fabulous!”
Reviewed 5 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Owlswood is absolutely fantastic!! Furnished to a top standard. A real home away from home. Cannot recommend highly enough. Phil and Karen were very nice and helpful. Great location. The Edinbane Inn is at the end of the road barely 2 minutes walk. We had buzzards flying over on a daily basis which was great. A perfect place to relax after a day out exploring.
