Short summer nights give extended sunsets and the chance to see noctilucent clouds shining silver 50 miles above us to the north. In the winter our northerly aspect and lack of light pollution give excellent views of the aurora borealis.

What a treat to be able to return here to Kathy's beautiful cottage. We have enjoyed many a days fishing and a few fish suppers too (recommend Waterfront in Broadford). Had a beautiful walk out to Fiadhairt broch to see the seals. Visited Inverness. Many thanks to Kathy and Nick the most thoughtful and accomodating hosts. Cris, Emma, Kai and Skye Johnson, 5th to 19th August.
We felt so lucky to have found this special place last year and couldn't wait to return! The weather was beautiful. I'm afraid you're stuck with us as regulars. Thank you Kathy and Nick. Kristin and Julia Steele (and Ruby the lab), Stirlingshire.17th to 22nd July.
Our fourth visit to Skye, but our first in a lovely cottage.

We'd love to come again to Kathy's cottage and stay for two weeks.Thank you very much to our nice hosts. Birgit and Peter from Germany, 20-27th May 2017.

Thank you both for one of the most peaceful, lazy and unstressful weeks. Scenery on this beautiful island is world class. people always interested in you and no rush to go anywhere or do anything. Cottage excellent in all respects and lovely to see a coal fire again. I can see why you have so many bookings and so many people return. David and Anne, Renfrew. 20-27 September 2014
We have found here a quiet and cosy place.
Skye landscapes are really fantastic.
A little piece of heaven on earth???
Thank you for everything. Isabelle, Philippe from France. (thank you for the honey Philippe!) 12 - 26 July 2014
Our third time here, first time in summer- great to be able to go out in the evenings- saw two fantastic sunsets at Coral beach and Neist Point- lots of seals and some type of cetacean(?) haven't got very good binoculars!
Coming back to the cottageis lovely, the bed is so comfy! The kids love their room too. A week is never enough......
Thank you, Anna. Rik, Tilly and Robyn. London. 21-27 June
Stunning, dramatic location + very cosy cottage. Had a lovely time in Skye exploring the island and its wildlife (even though the weather was more like winter for us!) Mark, Elizabeth and Kathy (Melbourne, Australia) 1-6 July 2013
' 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! Sue, David and Codie dog White from Dorset. 16th-23rd June 2012
' Cosy cottage with a fantastic view. Everything was here. Skye is very beautiful. We did some fine walks. The weather was ...very hot!. Sunshine from morning till evening. Thanks Cathy and Nick.
Bettie and Dominick, Belgium. 19-26th May 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.
