Very Good

“Fabulous location and experience”

Reviewed 19 Apr 2014

The Boathouse was superbly equipped and the tasteful design and decor added to wonderful location, close enough to help us to get the best out of Skye. We felt thoroughly spoilt during our time there and left feeling relaxed and rested. I am already planning a return visit

“A wonderful escape!”

Reviewed 8 Dec 2013

From the stunning approach down the track to the boathouse (very easy to drive in a normal small car) to the fabulous welcome pack to cover all eventualities, we couldn't have asked for a better welcome to Kingsburgh. The location is amazing - from watching the beautiful ever-changing weather, the wide range of bird-life and the seal, to the ease of access to nearby Portree (no more than 15 mins away) - we couldn't have been better placed to explore the Trotternish peninsula (which has some fantastic walks and sights) and beyond. Carol has done a wonderful job on the boathouse, which was truly stunning and very comfortable - most days it was difficult to get out of the door and leave the amazing views. We'd love to return, just need to work out when we can get back!

“Blissful, luxurious peace and tranquility.”

Reviewed 20 Oct 2013

We have just returned from an utterly luxurious, memorable stay at the Boathouse. From the moment we stepped through the door we knew we had scored a winner. The location is superb - conveniently enough to get to Portree quickly, and handy to get to lots of other spots around the island. The cottage is super- comfortable, from the lovely Super-king size bed to the bath big enough for two overlooking the loch. The Boathouse is equipped with everything you could wish for, but really you just want to look out at the views of the Cuillin, the loch and the wildlife. On our last two nights we had clear, cold weather and th night skies were lit up with the most beautiful display of stars I have ever seen, living up to Skye's reputation as a Dark Sky location. We were sad to leave but have a host of wonderful memories, and we will return, I am sure. Thoroughly recommended and full praise to Carol and her partner for the amazing renovation job they have done on a lovely building.

“Scenery, solitude, luxury”

Reviewed 23 Sep 2013

We could not have been more pleased with the Kingsburgh Boathouse. The location was outstanding and the Boathouse was beautifully presented with some delightful touches. The weather was kind and we enjoyed 6 days of spectacular walks, even venturing on to the Cuillen ridge. Everywhere was within reach and Portree was only 15 minutes away. We could not tear ourselves away from the views from the house and ate in every evening. The wildlife remained elusive but the peace and quiet and the feeling of being away from it all more than made up for that. Carol has thought of everything and reading the story of the Boathouse's conversion confirms that this has been a labour of love. We most certainly hope to be back again one day.

“The Perfect Holiday”

Reviewed 22 Jul 2013

We stayed in the Kingsburgh Boathouse for our honeymoon, and it could not have been a more perfect get-away. The accommodation was fantastic! Very clean, new, and cozy, but most of all very romantic. The setting and the views were unparalleled -- like a front row seat to the drama of Skye. For anyone wanting a romantic get-away, this is your place. We can't wait to go back!

“A relaxing holiday in a beautiful setting.”

Reviewed 4 Jul 2013

The house was one of the best houses we have stayed at in Europe, and we have been in six other countries on this country and would say it is on a par with those of Canada and america by way of amenities. The welcome pack was exceptionally good as well as the numerous toiletries provided. The location is outstanding, and the view from the house will stay with us for a long time. Because of the location it was a very relaxing peaceful week. Carol was not there all week but she was very helpful later when required. The tranquillity was the best aspect, we would have liked more good days, we had 3, however you do not do to Skye for the weather but we could appreciate the beautiful scenery better when the rain was not obscuring out view.

“A memorable fortnights stay in a spledid location.”

Reviewed 7 Jun 2013

A very well appointed building in a delightful position. We had supper outside on one evening in the sun and in front of a log fire with sleet outside the next; both were a joy. A snag with the broadband was sorted out by Carol personally. Roger had an unforgettable days brown trout fishing way up in the hills with local Kingsburgh ghillie. We found a fresh fish outlet in the road behind the Co Op in our second week. Talisker distillery trip a hit : we are now sold on 'peaty' Scotch - there is a good Oyster shop half a mile beyond the distillery.

“meer dan geweldig”

dit plekje is fantastisch,wij waren voor de vierde keer op skye,maar dit was wel heel bijzonder.Een geweldig uitzicht in een super knus huisje De otters zwommen voor de deur.Constant wisselende luchten,uitzicht op de black cullins en de hebriden. fijn om aan terug te denken.

“Completely perfect”

Reviewed 25 Apr 2013

The setting of this boathouse is stunning. Every window in the house has a view. The surroundings are so peaceful and quiet its the perfect get-away. The house itself is delightful, full of home comforts with a luxury touch. Only a 15 minute drive to the nearest town. Highly recommended.


Reviewed 24 Feb 2013

It's a great place, very comfortable, huge bathroom. It's not cheap but then you wouldn't expect it to be. We used up all the firewood and Carol gave us more but we still ended up buying another bundle. To summarise: a great place for a couple to get away from it all.
