The Bothy was exceptionally clean and Ellen was very helpful, ensuring we had a good holiday.
It's so cosy with everything you need and in a wonderful location, with a great little enclosed garden for dogs.
I highly recommend Ellens Bothy and I'm sure we'll be back next time we come to Skye!

“Fantastic little bothy”
Reviewed 15 October 2019 for a stay in October 2019

person found this review helpful

My partner and myself stayed here for a week and have lived every minute of it. Although the bothy has no internet or much mobile signal as such, who really needs it staying somewhere like this!

The cozy stove fire is to die for, it has all the amenities you could really need for a stay such as ours and the price for such is really generous. Whilst you really do need a car to get to most touristy places such as Portree and the Fairy Pools, and will need one to get things from the Co-op (although there is a shop within walking distance), it's a short walk from the beach and it's easy enough to chuck on your walking boots, and just set off on a leisurely hike.

We have never been to Skye before and were worried about the weather before coming as the forecast wasnt... Fantastic. However, if I could give one piece of advice, there's no point in trying to predict the weather! Skye was relatively kind to us and had only 2 real days of rain, but we just planned around that. Weather is quite unpredictable here, so it's best to just take it as it comes and not trust the forecast!

All in all, fantastic place to stay, a great getaway from busy work life, and we will be back!

Thank you Ellen!

“Just perfect 👌”
Reviewed 25 April 2019 for a stay in April 2019

Ellens bothy is located perfectly in the Isle of Skye, it made a great base for our holiday. The bed was extremely comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed, was truly pet friendly with blankets and treats, and was very cosy. Views from all round the bothy was outstanding. We absolutely loved our holiday on Skye and will definitely be back.

“A fantastic comfy place to stay”
Reviewed 18 March 2019 for a stay in March 2019

We stayed at Ellen's Bothy last weekend. The bothy is comfy, warm and well equipped. We loved the log burner in the front room. Plenty of hot water and a powerful shower in the bathroom. Easy to find. Short walk to the beach. Dog friendly. We'll be back.
