We booked this cottage through Sykes Holiday Cottages & the staff couldn't have been more helpful or friendly in giving us all the information we wanted , there were also text message updates when it was time to travel to Skye about contact details to get the key for the property , which i might add was very helpful so a great experience in dealing with Sykes Cottages.
The cottage itself was very clean & cosy , there is 1 main bedroom , the bathroom is just next to the bedroom , there is a kitchen come living room but there is plenty of space for both to be used at the same time , there is also a wood burning fire which gives off plenty of heat , the kitchen is modern & easy to keep clean , in the living room there is a fold down sofa if you have any guests staying .
There is a small shop about 30 feet away so it was easy to get supplies of most things for our stay there , there is a slightly bigger shop in Staffin & this is a 5 min drive or if you need to do a bigger shop then call into Portree on your way up to Staffin as this is the closest town & will take about 15 to 30 mins to get to .
The owner John is very friendly & helpful to all who stay there , the scenery is just breath taking & if you catch the tide just right there is a lovely beach just 5 mins walk from the cottage so it was great for our dogs for long walks , we also found the locals were very kind & friendly too & knew all the best places to go on Skye , we had a wonderful relaxing holiday there & were very reluctant to leave after our weeks holiday , we plan to return soon as it was so to our liking as holidays go , i would rate this 10/10.

The Barn is a wonderful cottage set in amazing scenery. The owner, John, was very helpful and endeavored to make sure we had enough peat for the fire (which was always fun to light). The cottage, recently converted, has all the amenities necessary to make a stay stress-free, and with a shop just a few feet away there is little chance of running out of the essentials. Skye has a multitude of attractions from its scenery to its wildlife and even the chance to go fossil hunting. A week is simply not enough time to explore the island and we intend to go back in the not too distant future. The only downside (albeit relatively minor) is that the cottages' location is not central so there is quite a bit of driving to be done, especially when visiting the south of the island.

Wonderful stay and would highly recommend this venue. Greeting with peat fire - the barn was cosy and had everything you could possibly needs - John was so welcoming and knows everything there is to know about Syke - we had a wonderful stay and would definitely visit again.
Beautiful scenery and friendly owner, a great place to stay and

John, the owner, knows all the best places to visit on Skye and was able to help us plan our days. This was our second visit to the Barn and we found it to be very comfortable with good road access to the rest of Skye. We plan on returning for a third visit quite soon.
