' Here we are again for the sixth time, I think that says it all. Another brilliant week and the weather good too. Lots of fish caught and large ones too(pollock, plaice, dabs & mackerel). A return trip to Loch Coruisk again, deep in the heart of the Cuillins. Went over again by the Bella Jane- we highly recommend these people as their customer service is fantastic and they are really good with dogs. We did manage to walk right round the Loch in just under 3 hours. it is a very hard walk, made possible as no rain here for two months. The path around is hard to find but well worth the challenge....Thanks again Kathy and Nick for another great holiday. See you again next year! Sus David and Codie dog White from Dorset. 16th-23rd June 2012

' With thanks to Kathy. We have loved our week in your cottage. Despite the force 6,7,8 NE winds we have walked and walked. Waternish point was wonderful, but then so was walking the cliff tops of Hoe Rape! It was the best walking we've ever done. we return home refreshed and relaxed. the Jack Russells are worn out. Our last night was spent at the Stein Inn- the food was fabulous. Despite the very cold winds we have had a really lovely time, fallen in love with this island, we will be back! Pam and Doug Westcott, Hessle, E.Yorks. 5-12th May 2012.
' What a fantastic week-sunshine every day. We really missed the mists! As regular visitors to Kathy's cottage this has been one of the best. One of the highlights has been the night skies-so clear. Can't wait for our next visit. Maggie, Pete and James-Keswick, Cumbria. 7-14th April 2012.
'Lovely cosy hogmanay holiday. Bracing winds (waterfalls flowing upwards most of the time) and no danger of drought! Great walks locally and up at the Quiraing in the snow. Long evenings gave plenty of chance to enjoy the cosy cottage and tremendous stove. Thanks for a great break and happy new year to you all. Lynda and Tristan, Glasgow.' 30th December-4th January 2012.
'Our first visit to Skye- beautiful scenery, amazing wildlife,(otter,eagle,seals +red deer) lovely walks and friendly locals! Kathy's cottage was cosy and romantic- and very relaxing- wished we could stay longer! Many thanks, Katie and Blakey, Isle of Wight.' 22nd -29th October 2011.
' Saw eagles above Loch Mor and an otter surprised us whilst fishing at Meanish Pier. Had a very relaxing week, again very reluctant to leave. Will definitely be back for another dose of peace and quiet. Thanks again, Wendy and Louise, Glasgow.' 15th-22nd October 2011.
