We loved Moyle Cottage. The views across the harbour are fabulous (rain or shine!). The cottage itself is very cozy and has everything you could need for a perfect stay on this stunning island. Comfy beds and sofas, and plenty of space make for a great base.
Skye in August was busier than I expected, but it was still easy to get away from the touristy spots and enjoy the dramatic scenery.
I have stayed in 4 cottages in Kyleakin in the past 6 years.... This is the best in terms of location, services, cleanliness, equipment.... lovely view
This is a beautiful cottage next to a small (working) fishing jetty in a picturesque and peaceful location. Kyleakin is itself very small but there is Kyle of Lochalsh just over the bridge and Portree is about a 45 minute drive through the most stunning and grand scenery on the planet. Take your time to enjoy this!!
The cottage is extremely comfortable and the kitchen is equipt with every untensil known to man. It has a warm and inviting feel and has enough space for any family to spread out and enjoy. There is a well-placed bench just outside the utility room to enjoy a morning cup of tea and toast watching the boats and birds, rain permitting, and a good short walk to Moil Castle to set you up for the day. Make the most of this view, you will miss it once you leave!!
Many thanks to Sue for out stay - it took 16 hours to get to (traffic!!) but well worth the effort. My only recommendation would be stay for more than one week so that you can take your time to explore as well as relax and soak up this incredible atmosphere, but come prepared for rain. It's still enjoyable, not matter what the weather does.
I would love to return and bring my parents next time.
