Jane - Apr 2019

Loved this cosy cottage.  The decor and amenities were wonderful and alllowed for a very relaxing break.  Be prepared to drive as it is in quite a remote area but the views as you journey from place to place are well worth it.

K Drysdale - Mar 2019

We had a lovely relaxing stay at this beautiful cottage in a wonderful location.  We saw seals, otters, goosanders, teal and other birds.  A real wildlife haven.

Sarah - Feb 2019

A beautiful week so relaxing and your wee Croft is superb xx

Barbara & Vernon - Jan 2019

This is a small but perfectly adequate property situated at the end of the peninsula so no passing traffic, in fact most of the time there is total silence.  The Croft is a great size for two and equipped with everything you could want.

Pleasant stay in this cosy croft.  There is a very cosy atmosphere in the croft and it's a nice place to spend a carefree holiday.

Yet again, another perfect stay in the Croft. It really is a little piece of paradise. Always made to feel welcome by Gail. I never want to leave at the end of the week, which is why I keep going back. Totally recommend a visit to Isle of Skye Croft.

Paula - Oct 2018

Just back from my first visit to Skye, and I really wasn't disappointed!  For me, it was a chance to relax and rejuvenate, and Skye Croft was the perfect place to do that.   I did venture out to explore a little, such a spectacular island.  Mostly I soaked up the views from the Croft, enjoying the quiet and calm.  I read some good books, cooked some food, drank some wine.   For the first time ever, I read a book from cover to cover in one day, and didn't feel at all guilty!  I'd like to think I'll be back, and might even consider bringing my husband along next time!   Thanks Gail for making everything so easy and for making your beautiful croft so warm, cosy and welcoming.

Thank you for allowing us to share your bit of heaven

Christine B - Sep 2018

The Croft is set in a lovely location, down a quiet track and right beside the loch.   Unfortunately, the week that we visited, the weather was windy and wet so we were unable to use the garden or Kota hut.  The Croft itself is very comfortable and clean.  It is ideally situated for visiting all parts of the island.

Yolande & Linda - Jul 2018

We had a WoW effect when we opened the door of the croft, and it stayed on for the whole week.

The island is splendid.  We made a lot of walks and saw amazing views.  We hope to come back!

Veronika - Jun/Jul 2018

Dear Gail, the cottage is a dream!  Thank you for setting it up.  Definitely worth a year's wait.

Phil & Ann - Jun 2018

We have been visiting "Skye Croft" since 2012 and the location is still as amazing on this visit as the first.   The owner Gail always has the accommodation spotless clean for your arrival and even leaves a couple of complimentary miniature wines for your enjoyment.  Whether you wish to use the Croft as a base for travelling further afield ore merely to chill out at the Croft, you will not be disappointed.  Highly recommended, and we look forward to our next visit.

We had a lovely time in your croft. We saw Skye in all weathers but it was still beautiful.....even in storm Hector!!

Thank you for helping us have a wonderful stay on Skye.

Ellen - May 2018

Ian & Jane - May 2018

Just a short note to thank you for wonderful stay in the croft. All went well except the weather could have been a little kinder, but did not hinder our enjoyment of the island. The two otters paid us a visit on our first morning and again at 6am on Saturday as we packed to leave. The Loch was like glass with a perfect blue sky and a pair of otters playing just off the shoreline.

Thanks again.

Bruce & Jenelle - Apr 2018

Very comfortable, affordable cottage.  Close to Portree and central to all Skye attractions.   Lovely natural environment.  We saw lots of birds and seals.  We spent a week.  Gail is very honest and professional.

We have had a great time

Arunas - Apr 2018

It was really nice stay for us, full of cosiness and relaxing evenings. Seals were visiting us and a number of various birds. We enjoyed grill house a lot.

Susan - Apr 2018

We had a lovely relaxing break at Skye Croft, the cottage has everything you need, most importantly though are the beautiful views and the abundance of wildlife - seals, otters, cormorants, herons, oyster catchers etc. we watched daily from the croft. We visited most areas of Skye during our stay, the cottage is in a great position for touring the island.

Francis - March 2018

Dear Gail thank you we had a lovely holiday.  We enjoyed walking on Skye and the setting of the croft was perfect.  The Croft itself had everything we needed, however a rubbish bin in the kitchen would have been useful.  Thank you again.

Jennifer - Jan 2018

Just want to say thank you for letting us stay at your stunning croft. We had a fantastic week, even alerted farmer to a poorly sheep that thankfully survived.  Thought I'd attach this photo of your croft, got some amazing photos as weather was so good.  We hope to return, all the best for 2018

Jan & Dave - New Year 2018

We had an excellent few days over New Year at the croft. Great location at the end of small peninsula, right next to the water, with lovely views. The croft is warm and cosy with everything you need for two people. The BBQ hut was great fun too. Convenient too, with only a short drive to Portree for supplies. Will definitely be back.

Debs & Pete - Nov 2017

From booking to leaving Skye croft the whole experience was perfect. The croft and it's location is out of this world, a beautiful place to be with the most amazing wild life and a perfect base for further exploring a beautiful island when you can drag yourself away from the beauty of the croft and it's location Than you.

Mark  Nicole - Oct 2017

Hi Gail, just a quick message to say how much we loved our time at your wonderful croft last week. I truly think it was the best holiday I've ever had and the croft makes such an excellent base for exploring all the bits of Skye that we love (the highlight this time around was definitely the view from the top of Marsco).

I can't tell you how impressed we are at how you've thought through every little detail - the place was just perfect, it's a real credit to you! 

Justine - Oct 2017

Your Croft is so warm and comfortable to go back to after our long walks. The only issue we had which was minor and not a problem was we couldn’t get the video player to work.
The seals were out every morning playing at the bottom of the garden which was great. We loved seeing the highland cows and even saw some red deer.
We only saw half the island so will be back to do the other


Note from Skye Croft - Huge thanks for making me aware Justine, the DVD Player has now been replaced and I'm so sorry it wouldn't work during your stay.  Gail

Anastasia - Sep 2017

The croft was the perfect place for my husband and I to celebrate our anniversary, with total peace and quiet (apart from the friendly sheep that like to wander around the back garden!) and some wonderful views over the loch.  The croft was really comfortable and nicely decorated, and a total pleasure to stay in.   And despite it's isolation, it was surprisingly easy to get to and well connected with the major roads.  

I would thoroughly recommend!

Vero & Lory - Aug/Sep 2017

We spent a wonderful stay here at Skye Croft.  Thank you to provide such a comfortable and cosy place for holidays.  The accomodation is great and we felt welcome and at ease as soon as we arrived.

Jane & Michael - Aug 2017

It is such a pleasure to stay at Skye Croft, thank you for sharing your lovely cottage in this stunning location.

We will definitely be hoping to be back again in the future.

Christine & Graham - Jul 2017

Your cottage was perfect for us and we loved the set table which we saw on entering the room.  We had a lovely week and came home refreshed so thank you very much.

Dietmar & Sabine - Jul 2017

Wir haben hier 3 herrliche, erholsame Wochen verbracht. Das Croft können wir uneingeschränkt empfehlen! Hier findet man ein gut ausgestattetes Cottage in super ruhiger Lage.

Ian & Margaret - Jun 2017

Wow what can you say about Skye Croft words fail to describe the peaceful and beautiful location it was as we remembered and more.

Again many thanks to the housekeeper the cottage was spotless and equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay.

The weather was mixed this year but it only enhanced the different moods you can experience from the cottage and this year we were lucky enough to see the White-tailed sea eagle and also the otters, a wildlife lovers paradise.

Thanks Gail for letting us share your hideaway and we are already looking forward to our 3rd visit to the croft next year.

Many thanks from two very happy Skye Crofters.

Wendy & John - Jun 2017

We had an excellent week, thank you -weather and walking was good. Everything at the Croft was spot on and by and large we avoided midge contact!

One of the highlights of the week was sat on the decking for several hours on Thursday afternoon/evening watching  the seals mainly in Loch Treaslane and wider into Loch Snizort Beag.  We lost count at 20 and so close – amazing!! They seamed to realise that they had an appreciative audience and put on quite a show for us.

Once again thank you for your hospitality.

Chris & Helen - May/Jun 2017

Many thanks for the opportunity to stay at Skye Croft.  Helen and I had a wonderful time and found the croft perfect for our needs.  Many thanks.

Gary & Janet - May 2017

We loved Skye Croft from the moment we actually saw it for the first time at the end of the road to locking the door and having to leave after our weeks stay.

We spent as much time as we could at the cottage, in the garden, in the Kotor Hut, at the waters edge and on the peninsula. we didn't see all that Skye has to offer....we'll just have to go again....and again.

Andy S - May 2017

Just to let you know we had a wonderful time on Skye. Your croft is in the most amazing location.  We never left until after 11.00 most mornings as we couldn't keep our eyes off the loch looking for otters.  Alas, to no avail!   We saw the seals everyday and lots of bird life. There is a heronry on the opposite bank of the loch. I counted 19 sitting in the tree one day. You could hear them in the evening. It was fabulous weather too so we never needed to use the burner or Kota. Only one request for future holidaymakers- get a new tin opener. It's hopeless! Other than that, everything was brilliant.  Thanks again.  Hope to be up there again sometime.

Hannie & Hans - Apr/May 2017

Louise B - April 2017

After visiting the Isle of Skye briefly in September 2016 we decided to come back and spend a whole week exploring.  Skye Croft was an excellent base for our stay - both in terms of location and comfort.  Skye Croft itself is wonderful - very comfortable and cosy and each day we looked forward to returning after a day of exploring.  Would definitely recommend a stay here and hope to visit again in the future.

Alan P - April 2017

This is a small perfectly crafted croft with everything a couple needs for a break away.  We had a great time looking out over the loch, bird watching, seal watching and going for short walks.   The rest of Skye is there to explore once you jump in the car.

Thanks Gail.  We had a superb time and really managed to relax from the moment we opened the door.  We are already thinking about when we can next return.

Martyn L - March 2017

We have just got home after an awesome 2 weeks in Scotland - We had a wee in Glencoe after leaving Skye.   We had a great week in your croft.  What a fantastic building and location, it certainly had the WOW factor.   Thanks again for a great week on Skye.

Martin B - March 2017

Our second time at the Croft, and just got back after again an amazing week on Skye.  2 weeks later in the year than last year and a significant difference to the wather.  Sun, blue skies, wind, rain and is Scotland!  Croft was as amazing as last time and perfectly located.  Walks to Rubha Hunish, Neist Point, Fairy Pools extended walk and Coire Lagan in the Cuillins for spectacular views and weather.  Absolutely love this place and Skye.  A well timed break from Wifi and Phone signal!  Thanks Gail, will be back next year!

Victoria - Feb 2017

Wow!  What a place to stay.  There was nothing at all I would change about Gail's gorgeous little croft.  From waking up every morning to the seals, Herons and Oyster catchers to chilling in the Grill Kota at night.  It's only 10 mins from Portree by car so even though you feel like your in the middle of nowhere you can get to the shops easily enough.  We were lucky with the wather for the first couple of days but honestly it doesn't matter because it looks just as beautiful when it's cloudy.  Gails communication was brilliant so all in all I would 100% recommend and we will be back!!

Stephen M - Feb 2017

We loved our stay in the cottage.  A perfect location by the sea, something we esoecially enjoyed.  The cottage was a home from home, and it's location on Skye was ideal for exploring the rest of the island.  We are considering coming back with our canoe and exploring other parts of the island by sea and along the coast by the cottage.

Torsten - Jan 2017

We really had a wonderful time on Skye and it was hard to come back to a big and sometimes crowded city.  But that way one also appreciates such an exceptional holiday.

You indeed gave us a "WOW" when we opened the door to your marvelou little house!  I can't think of anything I was missing.   I just know what I'm missing now: the views from the terrace, for example the ties, the heron, the lonely seagull, the golden eagles, the seals, the sea..

I do hope to come back one day!  Thanks again
