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

Rosy & Pete - Christmas 2016

James D - Nov 2016

My parents had an amazing time.  They haven't stopped talking about it since they came home, and have taken some wonderful looking pictures.  The said the croft was lovely and cosy inside.

Thanks for taking the booking and making it as easy as it has been Gail, very informative and straight forward.  I'll certainly keep you and the Croft in mind for the future if I'm planning on venturing to Skye, likewise so will my parents.

Sandy & Ken - Nov 2016

As described - a wonderful getaway home from home in an amazing location.

Having stayed on the West coast lots of times and visited several of the islands (including Skye) we knew what to expect.  We love very rural locations and being on water so this met our wishes.  It is not a venue for lots of things to do - but for peace, wildlife, views etc it is superb.  The croft is very comfortable and has everything we needed.  My only thought - and it is a very minor one - was that it would have been handy to have a freezer compartment in the fridge.

Maureen - Oct/Nov 2016

Wonderful croft in a breathtaking position with views to die for.  Although small it is perfectly presented with all you could wish for, warm and cosy even in the coldest weather.  Within easy reach of supermarket and local amenities.  Great walking and sightseeing close by.

Andrew - Oct 2016

Thank you. I’ve submitted a brief but favourable review via Owners Direct. You certainly achieve your objective of the WOW factor as the first impression is great and the little details that are discovered as you settle in just reinforce the feeling. Some of these details that I remember are


1. Table made up ready for a meal with mini wines, greeting card and visitors book

2. Maps and books of the island and it’s people

3. Wood burner ready for lighting with replacement logs in the shed. I bought a box of firelighters only to discover you had some already in the shed !

4. Bird feeders filled and hung in the garden and with more peanuts and fat balls in the shed. As a lifelong member of the RSPB, I particularly appreciated this
Your choices in and around the croft make it a very welcoming and homely place to be, much, much more than just some holiday accommodation. 

Mark - Oct 2016

Stunning, stunning, stunning

An impressive, perfect little croft - ideal location to use as a base for the whole island, that is if you can drag yourself away from watching the seals and local heron just outside your garden.  We honestly cannot wait to return.

Tim & Sue - Sep 2016

Everything that you need for a relaxing time away from the hustle & bustle of every day life, a very well equipped cottage with all mod cons that you require to knock up a meal for 2!  The wild life that you see each day from the windows is truly amazing as a family of seals use to swim past most days, the amount of different feathered friends were also amazing to see.  The location is perfect for exploring the rest of the island as once you drive back up the little lane you are back onto the main road to Dunvegan ir going in the other direction Portree and shops etc.

Jenny & Ian - Sep 2016

Thank you so much for the use of your cottage.  It was a delight and we were very comfortable.  The weather today is glorious as we leave so we're sorry to go.

A Pritchard - Sep 2016

Couch and seating in lounge area lacking in proper support, not good for people who have back problems.  Fortunately there were 2 garden chairs stored in the garage we could use and we brought these into the property for our use.   Hairdryer smoked during use - discontinued using.

Note from Skye Croft - All feedback is always hugely appreciated and this is a fabulous insight for our future guests, the sofa is a scatter back style, for sinking into and relaxing on after a busy day exploring and may not be suitable for those with back problems.  As for the hairdryer, it's in the bin and a new one in it's place.   Thanks for brining this to my attention Alan.

Yvonne & Jonny- Aug 2016

This is a real wow-factor!  Wonderful cottage, just the right size for 2 people, very cosy, modern, clean and well-maintained.  There are no words expressing our enchantment of the scenic view and access of the wild-life just outside the door!  We spent many hours sitting outside enjoying it all and taking a lot of photo's.  The owner, Gail, has been most informative and making us feel very welcome to stay in her lovely little croft.  Thank you so much for the wine and the cards.  This has been one of the best holidays we've ever had an hope to be back soon again.

Ian & Diane - Aug 2016

Never been to Skye, but we will definitely return and we would not look at staying anywhere else.  The croft is a lovely little haven, with everything we needed.  The whole place is spotless, and there were some lovely welcoming touches.  Enjoyed an evening in the Kota hut, and spent lots of time wathing the birds.  From the patio we could see lots of wildlife, curlews, herons, cormorants etc.  Seals visited most days and we walked out to the point to watch them most evenings.  We were very fortunate to see the otter feeding along the shoreline one afternoon, what a privilege.  We cannot wait to come back.

Ian & Diane - Aug 2016

We're here :O)
Arrived yesterday afternoon. Everything is amazing, just so quiet and peaceful.

Love the BBQ hut and the resident herons.

Gonna explore the local area before we head off into the hills.

Amanda & Eddy - Jul/Aug 2016

Thank you - we had a lovely stay in your beautiful Croft! It was really comfortable and so amazing to have such a lovely view of the loch. We saw lots of birds and seals and had a very happy week.  We hope to come back soon!

Pat & Will - Jul 2016

Just to say how much we enjoyed our week at Skye Croft.  It was bliss and so peaceful, we are looking forward to returning.

Phil & Ann - Jun 2016

No matter how many times you stay here you will never become tired of the surroundings this dwelling is situated in.  The Croft is always kept clean and tidy by the owner and has all the facilities required for a great stay.  Ideally suited for up to two people, but transport is essential as it is off the beaten track.  Highly recommended.  We shall be returning.

 

Note from Skye Croft - Huge thanks to Phil & Ann for another great Trip Advisor review and for sharing these photo's with us.  You can see more unique PixTill photography from the Isle of Skye and beyond on Phil's  Flickr page.

Derek S - Jun 2016

The croft is a little gem at the end of a winding track.  It was everything and more than we expected.  The grill kota is a wonderful hut in which to sit and relax at the end of the day.

Great views across the loch towards Harris and over the mountains.  

We had a truly relaxing holiday in this fantastic little croft.

B Hart - Jun 2016

We had a really great time, and loved the croft.   You definitely got a "wow" from us when we arrived.  We absolutely loved watching the foreshore.

Marion G - Jun 2016

Stunning peaceful and relaxing location.  Beautiful property which was very well equipped and spotlessly clean.

Jane & Michael - May/Jun 2016

Wanted to let you know what a lovely week we've been having topped off with a beautiful day today that is less windy!

We're already trying to see where a return visit will fit in.

Thanks again for sharing this incredible place

Brian & Hilda - May 2016

We had a great time. Lots of good hikes and some magnificent birds, eg. Golden and White Tailed Eagles. Couldn't find the Dinosaur  footprint at Staffin though, so will need to come back! Loch Snizort is engraved in my mind. Tearing ourselves away is hard, very hard. 

Ian & Margaret - May 2016

One serious complaint I have never had on Skye before IT WAS TOO HOT!  You certainly achieved the WOW when we arrived, what a fantastic wee croft in the perfect of settings.  Everything we could have wished for and more, and thank you for arranging the wall to wall sunshine.  Thank you to the housekeeper everything was spotlessly clean and the design was just perfect for a bolt hole for two.  When do you start taking bookings for next year?  We certainly will be visiting again.  Many thanks for sharing your little part of heaven in Scotland. Many thanks from 2 very happy crofters 

Wendy & John - May 2016

From start to finish nothing was too much trouble.  Gail kept in touch with us throughout and gave us some good tips and hints which enhanced our stay on Skye.  The cottage's loch/seaside location and its uninterrupted views out to sea are excellent.  Inside everything is provided and Gail's attention to detail shines through.  Spotless and newly decorated throughout, the presentation was top class.  We would thoroughly recommend this cottage and will be booking again.

Helen & Bob - Apr 2016

Thank you so much for sharing your amazing cottage with us. We met 40 years ago and have been coming to skye since then. We love Skye so much and over the years we have been amazed with the scenery . This was a Christmas present from our wonderful Daughter and Beautiful Grand son.  Over 40 years we have seen some beautiful scenery but your cottage and the view have been more than we could have hoped for.   Thank you so much for sharing it with us xx

Nicki & David - Apr 2016

Skye Croft is the perfect balance of privacy, comfort and convenience and a lovely place from which to explore the beautiful island of Skye.  We are hooked!  Thank you Gail for all your thought and attention to detail.

Kerrie & Ian - Mar/Apr 2016

Had a really excellent time once again – loved every minute of it.

I managed to get to the northern tip of the island this time (Rubha Hunish) and got some great photos of seabirds, and the sea-stacks that are just to the east of the peninsula, (Kerrie had a day in the croft that day).  Out the back of the croft we had lots of seals this time, and a couple of them came onto land just to the left of the croft at low tide.

The Croft was exactly as we remembered it, and it was all spot on.  

Thanks for everything Gail – we’ll be in touch again soon to book next year’s visit…

Alexandra & David - Feb 2016

Perfect location and perfect cosy little croft.  Loved the little extras like the wine and the table.  Particularly enjoyed using the Kota.  Can't wait to come back!

Wendy & Derrick - Feb 2016

Skye Croft was everything promised.  Lovely little croft with everything you need.  The loch is on your doorstep with seals, herons, cormorants and many more, we even caught glimpse of a sea eagle!   One of the most relaxing holidays we have ever had.  Thank you.

Jacqueline & Ian - Jan 2016

We stayed at Skye Croft in January.  It was cosy, warm, very welcoming and extremely clean.  The personal touches of mini wines and cards from the croft were lovely, and the wildlife to be seen from  the window fantastic - plenty of seal, birds and even an otter.  Would highly recommend Skye croft and can't waait to go back.
