Lovely cottage with all the home comforts you would expect, a comfy bed, a well equipped kitchen and a nice log burner.
Bedding and towels were supplied so the only thing we nedded to bring was food.
Had a great library with info on local attractions, walking routes and maps, which was excellent for planning days out.
The cottage is in a fairly remote location, which we liked, but it is only a short car journey to Portree for provisions and it is in an ideal location for investigating the north of the island.
Stayed 3 nights and by the end of the first night the cottage felt like home.
We booked Four Winds it's for the location near to Isleornsay as a holiday before our wedding the week later. It was a fabulous house and was extremely comfortable and spacious, We were able to look out of the large lounge window and watch the ever changing landscape.
When the weather was cold and rainy the house was lovely and warm. When it was sunny, there was plenty of space and seating outside on the large lawn. We even did some kite flying one afternoon.
As we were staying for two weeks the cleaner kindly provided a change of linen for us which was nice.
Plenty of really good local inf...more
Shenavall is a beautiful cottage, well-equipped and with a beautiful view. The cottage has everything you need to have for a perfect holiday. We loved it. It's our first visit to Skye and we certainly come again.
We spent a very rainy week here with our two young children (aged 1 and 3) and had a fantastic time! The house was well stocked, and the owner had obviously thought about what guests might like. The cottage is very remote, which we enjoyed a lot, and the only neighbours we saw were of the wooly variety! Bed was really comfortable, shower was great, and all in all we would highly recommend it!
Enjoyed our stay here with our dog.
- The rooms, cleanliness

- Even though the cottage was 'no smoking' the couc...more
We stayed for 3 nights in Tigh Sona.
The cottage was very spacious and comfortable and equiped with all things we need.
The location was beautiful and nearby were many beautiful walks to do.
Thank you for the delicious Skye beers that were on the table when we arrived.
Lovely views from the cottage, light, bright and well maintained. A little more honesty about the location of the cottage would be nice. This is, to most people, a remote location and a considerable drive to find groceries and places to eat.
Great views out to sea. The sandy beach is a 2 min drive along the coast which was great for the dog (or kids).
The cottage is spacious with easy parking. Inside the cottage has all the mod cons you would expect. We cooked most evenings and found more than enough was their.
Tips for the owner. A saucepan steamer for veg would be handy and sharpen the knives. State only one bath towel provided (most woman I know love sticking one round their heads).
Thanks for a fantastic holiday.
We didn't want to leave and wished we had booked for a week. This was easily the highlight of our six weeks in Britain in both outstanding, wild natural beauty of the location and the amenities provided by the owners of the property.
The cottage was spacious, very comfortable and had a modern kitchen and bathroom. Extras provided included books, games and magazines. The information folder was full of suggestions for places to visit and instructions for using appliances etc. The feeling was one of complete peace, with beautiful unspoiled views over the seascape and ponies and chickens wande...more
This cottage has potential but it needs to be cleaned. The kitchen floor hadn't been cleaned, some of the dishes had been put away dirty, the pans were old teflon covered pans that I would never cook in. The bed had no mattress pad so the thin sheet on a bare mattress was not comfortable. There was not a scrap of toilet paper or a single dish towel. On a scale of 1 to 10 I'd give it a 3.
