I have stayed in a few pods now and this is definitely the best by miles! Great view, amazing pod, friendly staff we couldn't have asked for more! This was our first trip to Skye and knowing our accommodation was perfect made the rest of our wet and rainy trip easy! Skye is beautiful and the bunkhouse is an amazing place to make base!

One of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed at!! The staff are amazing, really friendly and always there to help. Super clean and the facilities are amazing! Genuinely felt like I was in a hotel! Would 100% recommend this place to anyone coming to Skye!

Tips:

Check out Skye brewery down by the pier, amazing beers! The Uig hotel pub next door also has them on tap. The shop down the road next to the post awesome is great as well! Lots of good options if you’re vegan or veggie and well!

Enjoyed our stay in the pod and watching the Calmac ferries coming in to dock - the view is spectacular. Loved the design of the Bunkhouse which is beautifully and thoughtfully equipped. Staff were all friendly and helpful - thank you :-) Had to mark down the facilities as unfortunately the shower in the pod only allowed for 2 x 3 minute hot showers before blasting cold water and its a shame there is no wifi in the pods (no radio/tvs fitted) - it would just be helpful for travellers to check weather/routes etc but this is just a minor quibble.

Tips:

Set Sunday lunch at next door Uig Hotel was good value.

AMAZING! so clean. Beautiful spaces and beds. Most impressive kitchen. Such hospitable and hilarious staff. They went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and pleasant. The view is fantastic and the location is great as well. Everything feels very accessible from this side of isle of Skye. The busses run on the main road at the bottom of the driveway.

Tips:

Old man of Storr is so beautiful! Fairy glen, pools are beautiful as well. Isle of Skye is great place to just drive around and hop in and out of the car when you see something cool. (I'd recommend hiring a car for it. Most places have good parking options in Scotland).

I had a fantastic last minute stay at the bunkhouse over Hogmanay. It was the first time I had stayed in shared dorms and I had a great experience. My dorm mates were respectful and considerate, all the facilities were great, especially the underfloor bathroom heating! On top of that, the people - staff and guests - really made my trip. I’ve already recommended it to friends and I am booked to come back to stay in a pod!

Tips:

Bring a small cool bag to keep your food in the fridge - saves you having to label a bunch of different things! Portree is only 20 minutes away and if you enjoy some fine dining or for a special occasion, Scorrybreac is excellent. Old Man Storr is a short drive away. The Fairy Pools, Neist Point and Coral Beach around an hour away too. A great base for exploring.

Hotel quality at hostel prices. These people really have thought of everything from a well organised kitchen, communal wood burner and even a guitar which was well used by others who could play better than I during my stay! Friendly staff, very clean place, nice relaxed atmosphere. Honestly one of the best hostels I've stayed in.

Tips:

I discovered that January is not the best time to visit Skye as many of the local businesses shut down for a winter break. There was a convenience store 15 min walk down the hill but everything else really involved a drive to Portree. There are a couple of local cafes and restaurants in walking distance but these were all closed for the winter during my stay. Beware there are several Uig's on Skye. "HERE We Go" GPS maps will take you to a road named Uig which is 30 miles away from where you need to be! Be sure to pick the right one! :) The driveway and sign is not lit so it is quite hard to find at night - Might be a good idea for the owners to add some lighting at some point as it is very easy to miss from the road. During the day it is easy to find, just look for the rather well endowed statue of a bull at he top of the hill! ;)

As a hillwalker 0800 in the morning is far too late for the cooking gas to be switched on. Security lockers should be fitted with hooks and the numbers are a bit small to read properly.

Incredible huge bathrooms, even with heated flooring. Private bunks in the hostel dorms. A gorgeous, massive common area and kitchen with comfy couches to get cosy by the fire.

Staying at the Cowshed was an incredible experience! My friend and I stayed in one of the pods and felt like we had our own little house on Skye. From our little porch we could see the sunset over the bay and so many sheep grazing. The pod was very clean and had everything we needed, while the common room and kitchen in the main building were amazing! One of our favorite parts was cooking a little meal in the common kitchen and then chilling by the stove fire.

Tips:

This place is only a thirty minute walk from the Fairy Glen, an incredible miniature rocky landscape to explore. The Falls of Rha are even closer and also worth a look. Just walking around Uig harbor is very pleasant in the morning, and there are a lot of little signposted trails in the woods we didn't get a chance to explore!

My wife and I truly enjoyed our stay here. Everything is amazing. The service is truly excellent and they made us feel at home. Especially Ruth, who did everything to make sure all our concerns were met. She even helped carry my wife’s very heavy luggage up to our cabin. The cabin is also well done. It’s compact and quaint, but a different experience. We had amazing views all over. We also woke up to sheep from our back window.

Tips:

If you are within the area, we would recommend taking the 1 hour sheepdog demonstration with Seumas. His place is at the end of the road by Fairy Glen, which is really near Cowshed. We booked him through Airbnb and it was an amazing treat as well.

We absolutly LOVED our 3 nights there ! Amazing hostel ... if you could call this an hostel. Great view, friendly and helful people working there. Clean and beautifully decorated common room. There is everything there to feel comfortable ( electronic games for kids, games, fireplace, laundery, great kitchen) We stayed in a pod, which was very cute and clean. It was a little bit small for 2 adults and 2 kids but so cosy. We would love to come back Thank you so much for those nice memories.

Tips:

We tried The Galley Cafe and Takeaway a few minutes away and it was really nice. The fairy glen are amazing and so close by. We also had a nice ride between Uig and Kilt rock through The Quiraing ... breathtaking !!

The cowshed is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in! The environment is warm and welcoming! The scenery is breathtaking! The beds have privacy curtain and are super comfy! And the showers! Oh my gosh! They have the best wash closets ever! I would definitely recommend coming here!

Tips:

I came without a car rental and had a magnificent time. If you don’t like walking a car rental may be needed though! You definitely have to check out the fairy glen! It is a magnificent walk! The Uig woods is another great location to take in Uigs beauty! Defiantly bring your own groceries. There are not many places to eat or “things to do”, but the scenery was enough to make me want to stay!

Tips:

All the Skye island is a marvel. Close to The Cowshed you can find the Fairy Glen, a lovely place to enjoy the peace and a short trekking route. One of the best trekking is the Quiraing, not fare from the hostel. The Dunvengan castle is also a good visit in your way to Neist Point.

Location PERFECT for fairy glen, hughs castle and getting to Quirang, northshore and Dunvegan. The Uig pier was worthy of a visit and the small groceries had what was needed for comfort and vittles.

We stayed in one of the pods for 2 nights. It has definitely been one of the best places we've stayed at so far during our trip and we wish we could have stayed longer. Such a relaxing way to head in for the night or to wake up with a cup of tea while looking out at the incredible view. The pods have everything you need and if you run out of something or need something that wasn't thought of, they provide it for you if you ask them at the bunkhouse. We will miss it there and if ever we're back this way, we would stay again in a heartbeat!

Tips:

If you have a car, the list is endless for places to see and things to do on the Isle of Skye: Portree, Neist Point Lighthouse, Fairy Pools, Talisker Distillery, Old Man of Storr, the Quiraing, Kilt Rock & Mealt Falls, Bride's Veil waterfall, the Old Sligachan Bridge, the Fairy Glen, and more! If you don't have a car, there is still so much to do in Uig, and even just staying and enjoying the beautiful views and relaxing atmosphere at the Cowshed is an option. The Fairy Glen is walking distance away and you could spend a full day there, exploring every corner of the place and having a picnic when hungry.

It is the best hostel I have ever seen! Perfect location. Just beside the Quiraing, the Old man of Storr and the Faery Glen. 20 min from Portree. Staff very helpful. They know the isle very well and they helped me to plan everyday. Very appreciated. No wifi in the rooms though, but quite good in the open area... for the HIghlands! Modern and clean. A very good atmosphere. You should definitely go!

Top notch hostel, the best I've stay in potentially. Execptional facilities, modern and clean, relaxed atmostphere, up a small windy road close to the ferry port at Uig. Steep enough walk up the road but worth it for the hostel's experience. Wish I'd stayed here longer than I did.

Tips:

Just spend time relaxing, chatting, cooking in the hostel or lounging on their many sofas. It's a really cool spot. Hipsters will enjoy it :)

It's been 40 years since I stayed at a hostel. The Cow Shed hostel was a great experience for us.We stayed in the pods and thought they were just great. Cooking in the big kitchen in the main building was a little chaotic but but with that many folks in the kitchen, that would be expected. It's amazing how well the system serves all those people with no disputes, etc. A great place and I would stay there again.

This is a beautifully, recently renovated to a high standard hostel. I especially liked the pull curtains on each bed allowing privacy and the beds themselves had very good height room & space. Views over the bay were spectacular too. However, whilst I imagine everyone will rave about this place there are a few other comments I have: 1) The location is lovely but note: you will need to climb a rather steep & prolonged hill to get there if arriving by ferry from Tarbet (if you didn't have a bike/car I'd recommend a taxi if it's later at night as it would be a good 15 - 20 minute walk) 2) No communal milk for tea/coffee (although you could buy small cartons at reception), I know this is probably bit of a bug-bear of mine but I do just think it's a nice & appreciated touch just to have this 3) No bike shed! (I do have a bike & given this has only just been renovated, v surprised this was not an aspect that had been planned within the renovation) 4) Whilst the location looks on to the beautiful bay it is quite literally in the middle of nowhere with nothing else around so that lovely sounding local pub would be another hike down the steep hill (just to bear in mind & also to bring some food with you if needed) 5) Ok so this hostel was pristine and very nice/well kitted out but perhaps too perfectly so! For me, it lacked a bit of heart & soul/individuality. But that said, it was v. nice & I'd happily stay there again.

I've stayed in many, many hostels but The Cownshed is my new favourite, and it is by far the cleanest with the best facilities. The beds are comfy, and the bathrooms are clean and spacious. The kitchen and dining area is fantastic with plenty of space for a number of travellers to cook and eat. I'll definitely be back! Thank you for a great stay.

Tips:

The Ferry Inn pub (short walk from The Cowshed). Skye brewery. Neist Point lighthouse. Fairy Glen. Skye Candle Co. in Broadford. And you must buy Salar salmon (available in the big Co-op at Portree!).

The Cowshed was an ideal place to stay while exploring Skye. I, and three of my friends, stayed in two pods. The pods included two separate sleeping areas, and were perfectly adequate for our purpose. They would also serve as a very romantic space for traveling couples. The lounge/common area was always very clean and well maintained. It served a a great hangout area when our pods felt too cramped. I would highly recommend for anyone and would be happy to stay here again.

Thank you so much for the pleasant stay. I was welcomed very warmly and helped with my hiking plans. I love the layout of the rooms and that you have lockers with a lock already. Don’t know if it’s too much to ask but an alternative for people who don’t drink ordinary tea might bring a smile to some people’s faces :) Oh and I love the gas cookers in the kitchen! As well as the maps available to lend and descriptions that go with it!

Tips:

There is a circular walk starting behind the garage, going up to the viewpoint and around past the beach which is nice of someone has time to kill before the ferry goes ( don’t know if that’s in the walls in you little basket). Also the waterfall! Definitely worth a trip. The hike over to Flodigarry via Ben Eidra is nice but the description at the beginning is not the best- also very boggy.

We loved the place. We stayed at the pod and it was lovely. We also appreciate the kitchen in the main house. It was very nice to be able to cook our own meal. We suggest adding a bath rug so when you leave the bathroom after taking a shower we don’t make a mess on the floor (pod) We are definitely coming back.

Tips:

Use your time to enjoy the outdoors. Portree is cute, but go shopping and eat at restaurants someplace else. Use your time in the island to soak all the nature you can get. It’s worth it. Nothing can compares to it.

The cowshed is a cozy and homely hostel with a very hospitable host. We stayed here on our way up to Quiraing the next day, and were pleasantly surprised by the amenities. The rooms were extremely comfortable and well furnished with a locked cupboard for each occupant. Common area was large and cozy, and provided cooking areas with cooking equipment as well. The host was a very friendly lady who even helped us after we had left. On the day after our stay, we had trouble finding an apartment and when we called, she offered us help and alternatives as well.

Feel free to bring groceries to prepare your own meal, the pantry is well equipped with oven, stove, microwave dishes & utensils.

We had rented one of the pods and we really loved it! It was so cute, well laid out, comfy and amazing to stay in. We also really enjoyed the mini kitchenette inside and that we could use the main facilities of the hostel if we wanted. The staff were very friendly, and always available to answer a question. We would definitely stay again.

Tips:

You can use the facilities of the main hostel and the pods come with a mini fridge and kettle. Staying in Uig almost feels more central then Portree as many of the hikes (Quiraing, Fairy Glen, Old Man Storr) are closer.

A great team of staff that are so happy to help you enjoy your stay, this place has a friendly/happy place vibe about it and it’s due to the staff. We booked a family bunk room with 4 beds, was very satisfied with the cleanliness and comfort of the room. Bathrooms are clean and very modern too. The kitchen was well equipped and it was easy to use appliances. The selection of games available was first rate and thoughtful for all ages. Travelling with two teenagers we were pleased to find current games that they wanted to play. It really is the small touches that make a place special and The Cowshed team have put lots of effort into the type of space they want to offer to guests and it shows.

Tips:

It is definitely worth the walk to the Fairy Glen Kitchen gets busy in high season so I’d suggest breakfast before 8.30am and dinner before 6pm

Staff was absolutely fantastic. This is also the cleanest place I've stayed in all my travels. The location is beautiful, and a close walk to the Fairy Glen, and a few other trails. I would love to stay here again!

Tips:

The walk into town was nice, but when you arrive at the Cowshed, if you take the bus, let the bus driver know before getting to Uig, and they will drop you off at the end of the drive. While the walk from town is nice, it may not be as nice with luggage. The people in town are very friendly, and there is a pottery place in town that has some nice gifts/reminders of Uig. I hope to return here again!

Great view. Nice pods un the middle of nature. Ideal location to visit Trotternish.

Tips:

The Hungry Gulls in Uig can deliver pizzas directly to the Cowshed. To have a great coffee: Single Track. To buy food for a pique-nic or for breakfast: Rankins in the center of Uig.

Tips:

Bring some food along to cook in the amazing self-catering kitchen. The facilites are brilliant. We then we go Fairy Glen, Neist Point and Fairy Pools. Prior to that, we visited Old Man of Storr, Kilt Rock and some of the castles on the island.

Tips:

I wish we had arrived earlier and made more use of the bunkhouse the day before, or maybe stayed a couple of days. We just travelled on the following day so did not have enough time in the local area.

Wonderful walks nearby. We had a lovely take-out dinner from The Galley Cafe and Takeaway (5 min drive from The Cowshed). If you go to Kilt Rock, do eat something at the food-truck there, called The Black Sheep. Both the traditional and the vegetarian haggis were very good.

By far the best bunkhouse we have ever stayed in for facilities and staff. Absolutely outstanding! The only niggle we had was the gas situation in the morning, we are quite early risers and like to get out walking but not having gas meant we either went without cooking or had to wait. If it was on an hour or two earlier it would be a great help and i’m sure other people would benefit as well.

There was a great deal of noise and banging of doors well after midnight although the staff had reminded visitors to keep the noise down after 23.00. Also people leaving early to catch ferries should be made aware that there are other people in the barn besides themselves. The 6 of us had very limited sleep during the four nights but it could be that no 6 is very close to the exit and entry door.

We stayed in one of the pods and really enjoyed it - cosy and great views! Staff was super friendly and helpful and it was great that we could use the facilities of the bunkhouse as well. The kitchenette of the pod only has rudimentary facilities so that cooking a meal is not really possible (no cooking plate, no cooking knives, ...) and we had to use the common facilities for dinner. For travellers without a car the location is a bit far away from bus stops and ferry terminal but still walkable (~30 minutes). However, overall very good experience!

Unfortunately after travelling hundreds of miles I was very disappointed after paying almost £200 I had no hot water at all. My daughter had to run from our pod to another in a towel and wet to shower in another one. Luckily we were with others. No hot water at all the whole stay in pod 3. However the views and staff were incredible! We came as a massive group with the dance school and there was no rules. Kids can play, run, sing, shout. Staff there when needed.. the place is incredible!

The bunkhouse is the best equipped I have encountered. The dorms are clean and well appointed and the communal areas are well furnished and comfortable.

Tips:

The Uig hotel is within walking distance for a meal although the kitchen facilities at the bunkhouse are very good.

I would like to thank you for accommodating our huge group of 53 people! We had absolutely no concerns during our trip. Check in was efficient and the staff all very pleasant during our entire stay.

The Cowshed was a real pleasant surprise. It had an amazing view and surrounded by fields. We stayed in one of the pods with two kids and was really cosy, clean and warm.
