“Splendid holiday home with stunning views”
The location of the house is perfect for giving a feeling of privacy and quietness with beautiful views all around, whilst being just a short and convenient drive from a local shop and fuel station in Staffin. We found the house itself to be of a very high standard; clean and welcoming (thanks for the biscuits!), well decorated and superbly equipped with everything needed for a week of family self-catering. The house was a great base for my son's fossil-finding mission - the trip to Skye was his 12th birthday present! We visited a few different beaches within a 20 mile radius of the house and found numerous fossils. He returned home very happy (and pretty exhausted)with his new fossil collection. We found that whilst Staffin bay is easily accessed at low tide to find the dinosaur footprint left in the rock bed, many other beaches are very difficult to access with parking a good distance from the beaches, no toilets for miles and often steep or long uneven paths to follow. Fossil hunting on Skye it seems is not for the faint-hearted! :) We visited the Staffin museum (phone to arrange an appointment) and enjoyed seeing the large collection of fossils there - huge ammonites, belemnites, dinosaur bones and footprints as well as other interesting finds that tell of human history on Skye. We also enjoyed the Misty Isle boat trip from Elgol to Loch Coruisk. Joel got to steer the boat for a little while and we got great photos of the seals and scenery. I would also recommend a drive to Glen Brittle and the walk to the Fairy Pools for waterfalls and aqua pools in a magnificent landscape.
“Excellent cottage in a great location”
The cottage was very clean and well maintained and is situated in a great part of the island with amazing views from the living room windows
“Most beautiful place and surroundings!”
The House is great. It was very clean, we found everything we needed. Wonderful Garden, great view. Great for walks, we explored the surroundings and enjoyed nature. Just gorgeous, hope to come back!!!
“A great get-away from it all in modern, clean, accomodation”
Trotternish Ridge View is a beautifully kept, clean & modern cottage 3 miles from Staffin and very handy for the Old Man of Storr, Quirang, Portree & Uig. It has 3 bedrooms (2 double & a single) and would be well suited to 2 couples. The kitchen has all the usual and the lounge looks out onto the Trotternish Ridge with an uninterupted view. It has a modern feel with lovely wooded floors (carpet in the bedrooms), free wi-fi, docking station etc. As my husband has difficulty walking, I can recommend it for anyone with a slight disability. The rooms are all on one level with plenty of space to move around and a ramp out to the back door. I wouldn't recommend it for a wheelchair user because the drive is made up of stones & not very easy to walk on. It is situated very near to my favourite cafe on Skye which is the Ellishadder art Cafe (definitely worth a visit and they do take aways if requested).
Modern, clean, comfortable house with large rooms. The photos on the official website do not do this house justice (so I have added some better ones to this review). Fantastic views from the lounge, good base for Storr and Quiraing. Would highly recommend. A tip to help you find it: Drive north past Portree and the Kilt Rock, then turn left (signed Marishader) and follow the farm track until you reach a cluster of houses, the cottage is the first one on the right, with the sign on the gate.
“Excellent property in an enviable location”
The cottage was immaculate and extremely spacious, with excellent accessibility. The location is superb with easy access to mountains, coast, local amenities and some wonderful tea shops! Pleasant and efficient dealings with the owner. Highly likely to visit again.
“Beautiful cottage in a breathtaking location”
We, a family of 5 adults, had a fantastic week at this beautiful cottage 10/17 October 2012. The cottage is located in a tranquil area and is very comfortable, modern, spacious and exceptionally well furnished and equipped with modern appliances. The owners are to be commended for the high standards set. The views from the cottage, especially of the "Ridge", are amazing and ever changing. There are wonderful views from every window. If you are a walker, hiker or climber or just like quiet scenic drives in the countryside with the availability of excellent cafés/restaurants then this the place to go. Cannot commend the cottage highly enough - perhaps like us you will find you won't want to leave.
House was clean, comfortable and well-appointed. Convenient to the sights on Skye. Owner was friendly. Great Rental.
“A great stay”
When we arrived at the cottage, there were fresh flowers on the table, there was milk in the fridge and there were some yammie cookies on the counter. How thoughtful. The cottage was spacious and very clean and tidy. The beds were made with beautiful linnens. Our kids loved running around in the garden and the sheep around the cottage. The WiFi in the cottage worked very well and we loved the two large showers! The cottage is located in Staffin, a very small village, but the local shop has all the basics you need. We went out for dinner at the Kilmartin restaurant and had a good meal. We also went to the Cafe Columba 1400 and that was very nice as well. A great stay!
this accommodation was immaculately presented to a high standard (have stayed in similar for a lot more cost)has every modcon and fitted out to a high spec for your own comfort and enjoyment. Stay was first time in this area and would not hesitate to return. ideally located to see all the island and close enough to travel 10-15 minutes for stunning sunsets. also spectacular views of rolling hills and countryside from the house itself.
