Firstly Gail was amazing right from the start. Regularly sending emails about the Croft and local attractions. When we arrived at the Croft it was dark so couldn't see anything. When we woke the following morning, OH MY GOODNESS!!! I knew it was beautiful from the photo's I had seen, but they really don't do it justice. The scenery from the back garden was breathtaking. For November the weather was unbelievable, sunny, blue skies nearly all week. The colours around us were amazing. We had an abundance of wildlife right on our doorstep, from herons, to a colony of seals, so close we could hear them snorting. The sunsets were like something from a romantic film, so beautiful with all the reds and oranges. The stars were like nothing I have ever seen before, a complete blanket covering the sky just twinkling away, so many shooting stars too. Now for the croft itself. What can I say that hasn't been said on so many reviews except WOW!!!! I am running out of adjectives to describe our stay. Gail has perfected a little home from home, actually it's better than my home and my partner had to drag me kicking and screaming to leave. It was so cozy and warm, the log burner was gorgeous. The underfloor heating in the bathroom was most welcoming when a late night trip to the loo occurred. The shower is massive with piping hot water. Extremely comfortable bed, which was hard to get out of due to the comfort. The decor of the croft is spot on, everything has been thought of, the little finishing touches make it the ideal place to come back to after a day of exploring. I could go on and on about Gails beautiful piece of heaven. I have stayed in Scotland many times before, but I have never stayed somewhere that makes me want to pack up and move to the Isle of Skye immediately. I just want to say thank you for sharing Skye Croft with us all. We will definitely be returning ASAP :)

“A little home from home!”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

An excellent location with superb accommodation...as the sun shone all week it was even better than I'd hoped. Portree is only around 8 miles away...wi-fi access is available at the Aros centre.
The Croft is well furnished and equipped...even fishing gear is supplied...I actually caught a pollock off the headland a couple of hundred metres from the Croft (beginners' luck). A freezer or freezer compartment in a fridge would have been very useful though..as would a pedal-bin.
We have already booked 2 weeks for next year..I hope the weather is half as good.

“An excellent property in an idyllic location for a quiet holiday.”

If bird watching, seal spotting or just lazing around are your idea of a good holiday, look no further. The Croft is alongside Loch Treaslane, literally 50 yards away, with a heronry on the opposite bank of the loch. At the end of the promontory on which the Croft stands is a small island, used by seals for sunbathing in good weather or a rest from fishing if not. A regular visit from a buzzard (or was it a hen harrier?) on a daily basis was another bonus. The Croft provides an excellent base from which to explore the rest of Skye, if you can bear to be away for any length of time. The property was superbly fitted out with every convenience for a really comfortable break; compact but ideal for two people. Many thanks Gail!

“A fantastic small croft for two in an idyllic location”
Reviewed 6 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Stunning location yards from the loch. Very well equipped and really cosy. Perfect for couples looking for a relaxing break. Seals. otters and plenty of birdlife. Just 7 miles north of Portree so really handy for Troternish and Dunvegan. Couldn't fault it at all!
