The cottages are spacious, warm, comfortable and cosy. Fibre Broadband is available via wi-fi throughout. Lounges have wood burning stoves and comfy, electric reclining leather sofas. There are two en-suite bedrooms, 1 king and 1 twin, both with WC, basin and digital shower, in each cottage. The kitchen and utility are very well equipped. Outside there is a garden with lawn, seating and picnic table. See our website for more photos and guests' feedback; www.balmaqueen.com

Wonderful experience and all the comforts of home and more. The view is spectacular and the conveniences second to none. You'll feel at home from the welcoming card to the time you leave. Everything is designed foe comfort.

Tips:

Stein Inn was our favourite restaurant. It's about an hours drive in Waternish. However the kitchen at the Byre is fantastic to make your own meals. You can get to my of the attractions on Skye easily.

We had a wonderful stay at the old croft house, the facilities were great, everything you might need is there, with a touch of luxury. We were lucky that we had great weather too so the views were amazing, beautiful sunsets. We would love to come back sometime.

Tips:

We had great food at the Cuillin hotel in Portree, spectacular views from the restaurant there. The Portree hotel bar did a very good lunch and is dog friendly. The Hungry Gull at Uig was very good, eat in or takeaway. We also bought fantastic steaks from the butcher in Portree and fresh fish from Just Hooked, all delicious. We did a boat trip from Uig, Skye Cruises, which we really enjoyed, two really friendly guys that took us out, they were great at pointing out the wildlife.

The best place we have ever rented. Although the weather was not good the house was a joy to come back to and relax.

We were sadly very disappointed with The Three Chimneys. We very much enjoyed Dunvegan Castle and Coral Beach

Ian & Helen are perfect hosts, met by Ian on arrival, very informative about the area, met Helen on the Saturday again very helpful about the local area and places to visit etc.

Tips:

Single Track Cafe is a must, highly recommended by Ian (visited 3 times cakes are delicious) lovely walks about the area. We have been to most of the other places to visit on previous holidays to Skye. If possible take the ferry from Uig to Harris on a Monday it’s the only day you can go and come back the same day, brilliant day out. The house is beautiful and the views are stunning, the extension is something else, and that bathroom Well that is something else, this house will not disappoint, you won’t want to leave. The house has everything you need and more.

Beautiful cottage in a superb location with views to die for! We loved it. It is very well decorated with high quality furnishings. Lots of extras are provided which is unusual for self catering accommodation. We spent most evenings sat in the living room admiring the view, looking at the wildlife and watching the sun go down. Helen and Ian are a lovely couple and have worked hard to make it a 'home from home'. They left some treats for our dog and some for us too!

Tips:

Single Track (just a few mins by car) do lovely coffee and will let the dog in if it's well behaved and small. Ellishadder Art Cafe (near Kilt Rock) again lovely coffee and cakes. Edinbane Inn (on the way to Dunvegan) lovely food and the Uig Hotel all dog friendly. Also The Ferry Inn if you want something special will let dogs in the bar.

Fantastic cottage and location. Could have sat and relaxed the whole time but plenty to do around the island Having “ branded” liquid soap dispensers in kitchen and both bathrooms would be more in keeping with standard of rest of property. Current ones look a little cheap compared to other things. A tiny thing in an otherwise welcoming holiday cottage.

Tips:

Plenty to do, just set out early sometimes to enjoy before everybody else!

Great cottage, very good location in one of the increasingly rare quiet parts of Skye. The cottage is modern but the renovation has been done sympathetically with it's origins. The panoramic windows in the day lounge and by the master bedroom en-suite bath are fantastic for watching the wildlife, sunsets and just enjoying the view to the outer Hebrides. Hosts were very friendly and helpful when we got confused by the heating system!!

Tips:

Good local cafe (at the Grand Designs featured house), great local artists too. The Old man of Storr and Uig are within 30 minutes drive. The location is ideal for exploring the mid and north of the isle. Great seafood at the Oyster Shed and good pub grub at the Old Inn, Carbost.

Fantastic location and the croft is well equipped and there were nice surprising touches discovered on arrival. Would go back without hesitation, just pick the weather!

Tips:

Loch Bay - not cheap but very good Three Chimneys - not cheap bit very good Flodigarry Hotel - avoid the Cullen Skink more like, expensive and more like Halong Bay of potato in a sea of cream
