We had a wonderful stay in Heast with Janet. Gorgeous location, very well organised and catered for, the cabins were perfect with the best views compared to anywhere else we stayed in Skye (Isle of Rum to the right, Loch Hourn to the left). The shared kitchen was very well furnished. Mostly we were very grateful for all the local knowledge and tips that Janet was able to provide!

Tips:

- Red Skye restaurant was excellent - Misty Bottle whiskey shop in Broadfoard has a great selection if you're into that - Driving to Elgol and then getting a boat out to Loch Coruisk was the highlight of our holiday

We were four friends travelling together and we hired both shepherd huts. We wanted the experience of staying in a shepherds hut and we weren’t let down. The beds were comfortable and the hut was very well thought out, utilising all the nooks and crannies for useful practical things you should need to make your stay comfortable. In addition to our huts we had use of a communal kitchen/bathroom and lounge. This worked out very well for us as we didn’t have to share these facilities with people we didn’t know so well. We enjoyed having the free range donkeys and chickens around us.

Tips:

Smidge is definitely a must if you react to midge bites. Also get your supplies in as the shops are a few miles away

Just spent a lovely four days relaxing in Janet's wonderful traditional shepherd hut. This was the usual restful experience we always have and that's why we return each year. Great to have the hens and donkeys greet us every morning and follow us about. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Perfect location for heading off to explore Skye. Visited the Fairy Pools at last which is a wonderful walk. Elgol is a must to visit.

Our stay at Bothan Buidheag was truly exceptional, our only wish is that we could have stayed longer! Janet’s warm and welcoming style immediately made us feel at home and her breakfast was delicious. The hut itself was cosy, with everything that you could need to be comfortable. The little touches such as the many animals around the hut - donkeys, chickens, and more - made the experience particularly memorable. The location was stunning, with panoramic views over to Rum and the surrounding mountains. We could not recommend this place enough. Thank you again!

We really enjoyed our stay at Skye Shepherds Huts on the Isle of Skye. The hut we stayed in was beautifully decorated and cosy. In mid October, the weather was starting to get cold but it was lovely to come back to the hut and get a fire going in the small wood burner stove and watch a film from the selection provided on the DVD player in the hut. The bed is a standard size double bed and very comfortable. Toilet and power shower solely for the use of guests is a 1 minute walk away. There is also a separate kitchen, living room space and additional toilet for use by guests which we didn't use as we had lunch and dinner out but was nice to know it was available if we needed it. Janet, our host, was very welcoming and introduced us to her various pets who were a joy to interact with. Gilbert and George the donkeys are wonderful, as are the cats and dog. The chickens are such characters and would often follow us to wherever we were going on the property. Also have to mention that breakfast was a treat delivered by Janet every morning. Eggs are provided by the resident hens and lovely and fresh. Skye itself is beautiful with many interesting walks to go. We are so pleased to have based ourselves at Skye Shepherds Huts as for us it was a big part of the whole experience being on the island.Thank you Janet for your 5*hospitality.

Tips:

We flew to Inverness and drove to Skye and the route we took went past Loch Ness which was beautiful and the rest of the drive was very scenic so it is worth taking that route either there or back. In Skye, we had planned to do the Quiraing walk near Staffin but the further North we went, the bleaker the weather got. We managed 15 minutes before turning back as it's quite slippery and dangerous in adverse weather conditions. It was a shame as it provides some really amazing views but that's nature for you. Anyone planning a walk at this time of year should make sure to bring a warm waterproof jacket, trousers, wooly hat, gloves and solid walking boots. We also really enjoyed the An Corran walk from Columba 1400 (also in Staffin) down to An Corran beach where at low tide you might see a fossilised dinosaur footprint. The walk itself is about 1hr 30 mins and very picturesque. Throughout our stay we had a couple of dinners at the Claymore Inn at Broadford. Deli Gasta does lovely breakfasts, lunches, cakes and coffee. We had a phenomenal trip to Skye and would love to return at some point in the future.

I had a lovely stay in the shepherds hut. Very well equipped and everything thought off. Lovely and cosy with the stove on.

I've been following the Skye Shepherd Huts on Facebook for many years. I've a photo on my dream board... This year it came true a present from my sister. The Huts did not disappoint cosy and compact, for me just perfect. The toilets and shower only a short stroll away. Also there's the Hutters kitchen and sitting room with everything you need. Not forgetting the lovely summer house with stunning views. (perfect for an evening G&T) Janet the owner was warm welcoming and has plenty of useful information and many books on Skye you can borrow while you are there. A fantastic host thank you Janet for making our story so wonderful. Breakfast is delivered to the huts in a lovely wicker basket we had fresh coffee, muesli, yoghurt, fruit and croissants... yummy! I also need to mention about the very friendly neighbours George and Gilbert the resident Donkeys who often popped by to say hello... All part of what made our stay so special

Tips:

We had lovely meal at the Red Skye restaurant (the entrance is round the back) https://www.redskyerestaurant.co.uk There's a petrol station and a Co-op in Broadford not far from the Shepherds Huts. https://www.isleofskye.com/broadford

Lovely location in an area which is out of the way but still close enough to several restaurants and a large coop. I would highly recommend the breakfast which has a lovely touch. The huts are spacious and the additional kitchen and lounge area make home cooking easy. There’s a barbecue area already set up and a fire pit and external seating upside the hut. Janet is a very helpful hostess and nothing is too much trouble. The site is small and ideally situated for island wide travel. I’m looking forward to my next visit.

Tips:

There are so many places to visit and see. Some are hard to find but again you can get lots of good information from Janet. The old man of Storr is a strenuous hike but the views are lovely and well worth the pain.

I had a fabulous stay at the shepherds huts which are full of janets character. It is obvious she takes pride in the huts and associated kitchen/lounge area offering a wonderful peaceful stay. I enjoyed every moment and have been recommending to everyone.

Janet is a lovely host who takes care of you, but also lets you enjoy the surroundings without intruding. The Hut is very tastefully done and comfortable and there's nothing that hasn't been thought of to make your stay special. There's even donkeys to entertain you! The location is amazing too with views to die for. Breakfast choice is excellent and delivered to your door – what more can you ask for. The self catering 'common room' is well equipped too and is a great place for having a fun, cosy social evening. We loved it!

If you are looking for something different and special then you must stay at the Shepherd Huts. The huts themselves are very well equipped, everything that you need for a short stay wirh additional cooking facilities nearby if you need them. The setting is very beautiful with fantastic views. Waking up to meet George and Gilbert (the lovely donkeys) is a memory that we will cherish for a long time...along with the chickens and Thomas the most friendly cat in the world. When we arrived we were met by Janet the owner who showed us around the hut and explained things and then left us to enjoy. In the morning Janet brings out your breakfast to your hut which was really nice and set us up well for the day. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to be back soon.....p.s....If you are planning a stay remember to take a big bag of carrots with you....George and Gilbert love them!

Tips:

Skye is very beautiful and there is plenty to see and do. We visited Plockton en route which is a special place and we'll worth a visit, especially so for the local seafood lunch

We loved our time at the Shepherd Hut and had a very chilled time. We just shopped in Broadford and then ate back at the hut. Cafe Sia is a very good place to eat as wee have done so in the past. This time we took the ferry over to Raasay and would recommend that highly. We also take the ferry from Armadale to Mallaig when we left Skye to enjoy another stunning drive.

Everything was perfect, really. Our host was really nice, the location beautiful and the hut amazing, like a real tiny house with everything we needed at hand and a super comfortable bed ! There was a kitchen available for the guests, a cosy warm bathroom and a lot of books and maps to help us decide what to do of our days. The road leading to Heaste might seem a bit long (especially when it's raining or foggy) and might require concentration, but that what makes all the charm of scottish single track roads and the view was superb.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in a Shepherds’ Hut. The Hut is so quaint but has more mod cons than ever expected that it made for a characterful and comfy stay. Facilities include mains electricity, electric heater and lights, kettle, sink and best of all a wood burning stove. We generally ate out but also cooked a meal in the separate kitchen facility - which is so well equipped you could host a banquet there. Janet was extremely helpful and friendly; if camping/glamping is your thing then we couldn’t recommend Skye Shepherd Huts enough!

Wow We have always wanted to stay in a Shepherds hut and I don’t think there can be any better appointed in all aspects than Skye Shepherds Huts. The huts are truly 5 star with every accessory you can think of. Think ... Denby crockery. Hot and cold running water, wood burning stove, Dyson air blade fan heater, linen bedding, hair dryer, soft lighting, usb charging station, genuine Harris Tweed cushions and much much more!! Janet has honestly not skimped and everything oozes quality. The toilets are are short walk and are in a annex to the main house which is kept warm and cozy. There is a shower here with abundant hot water - but the flow is slightly lacking. Also on the Property is an area for cooking which includes a fully - and I mean FULLY - equipped kitchen, eating area and casual lounge. This also has a loo. The whole area was excellent if you plan to cook rather than eat out. Also on site is a quaint summer house with draw dropping views. Breakfast is delivered to the hut every morning and we chose the cooked option for a small supplement. The peresention in a wicker basket and “tiffin tins” is inspired and all the additions and condiments were individually packaged. Very impressive. Janet the host is courteous, friendly and warm and goes out of her way to ensure your stay is memorable. My fears about being chilly were totally unfounded. The huts are well insulated and draft free and the wood burning stove raised the inside temperature to sauna levels very quickly indeed - so much so we had to open windows and doors to cool off more than once!!! If your planning a trip to Skye then Skye Shepherds huts really should be high on your agenda to stay at. I thoroughly reccomend them.

Tips:

Eat at the Claymore just down the road. Excellent food and what has to be the most friendly and personable service we have ever encountered.

I booked here because I liked the look of the shepherd huts plus they are willing to accept dogs. The minute I saw inside the hut I fell in love with it, there's a double bed, sink, fridge, plates and cutlery (and a mini DVD player, should you fancy that) There's also a log burner, which after being out in the Scottish weather made a good finish to the day. The bathroom is shared, but is only a short distance from the hut. There is also a shared kitchen/living area which looked great.

Tips:

The Shepherd Huts are about a 10-15 minute drive from Broadford, where there is a supermarket, petrol station, a few gift shops and places to eat. I went to the Waterfront chippy and would recommend there.

We also booked a breakfast which was delivered promptly by Janet 8n a picnic basket and was simply divine. Would definately go again and recommend them to anyone Gill.

What a find! Loved the location and amazing views from the hut. The Hut was exceptionally cosy and had everything that was needed over our 3 night stay. The DVD player in the little box was a fab idea and enjoyed picking a DVD from the library in the porch area of Janet's house. Even though we had to share a bathroom it was easy and everyone was respectful of space and cleanliness. The bathroom and huts are spotless and We have no complaints. Very dog friendly and this really made our holiday. Loved the fact that there were a variety of animals that were welcoming and all very chilled out. Finally the breakfast is amazing and a lot of thought has gone into making this a perfect place to stay on Skye. We will return!

Tips:

Definitely book a visit to the Three Chimneys restaurant, the drive is worth it! A fantastic culinary delight. We tagged onto Lunch a visit to Dunvegan Castle and the Coral Beaches. One word, beautiful! We walked the dogs in a number of places including Glen Brittle, Broadford and Kylerhea! Just be respectful to the sheep/cattle farmers and keep dogs on the lead when walking near fields etc. There is so much to see and do. I would advise to plan your day before heading out to make the most of this beautiful place!

For future guests information I am correcting the information above regarding towels.i supply a large number of single use cotton hand towels by the bathroom sink, and a small basket on the floor for used towels. I prefer this method to paper towels or hand dryers, as they are washed and reused and do not litter a shared bathroom. I can only imagine that this guest did not understand what the bale of hand towels on the glass top shelf was for.

Our recent stay at the Skye Shepherd Hut was fantastic; my husband had booked it as a surprise for our Anniversary & what a great choice it was. I would highly recommend it, from the moment we arrived Janet came out and gave us a warm welcome. We were shown to our Hut which was beautifully decorated to a high standard with some lovely homely touches & a shabby chic design, she had thought of everything. The location was beautiful & easy to find, Janet was always on hand if we needed anything. The resident Donkeys’, Gilbert & George were friendly & being an animal lover I was in my element, alongside the chickens roaming the grounds. Each morning a lovely picnic basket was delivered with a wide selection of hot & cold breakfast items which we had chosen the night before. We had a lovely relaxing stay & will defiantly be visiting again, if your contemplating a visit don't give it a second though just book...it's a little piece of tranquillity on a beautiful island.

Tips:

We have been to Skye quite a few times but never to the Southern part of the Island. I'd recommend the following book....Isle Of Skye - 40 Coast & Country Walks (Pocket Books)for a wide selection of walks all over Skye. We ate in CafeSia in Broadford a casual cafe which is advisable to book a table as it does get very busy & I'd recommend any of the Wood Fired Pizza's, if you wish to head a little further afield (over the Skye bridge) to the village of Plockton the Plockton Inn do the most amazing seafood & the village is beautiful.

We had a lovely stay in Janet's Shepherd Hut for 2 nights. The location and huts are very unique and despite torrential rain and heavy gusts during our stay the huts were very cosy and the lovely hobbit stove kept us very warm. Janet was very accommodating and helpful - doing a wash for us as we were nearing the end of a one week tour of Scotland - and delivered a hearty breakfast to our huts which was delicious. Janet was very attentive and friendly throughout, while at the same time leaving us to our own devices to come and go as we please. It is a gorgeous location and a unique setting and holiday which adds and extra element to the holiday. We would highly recommend it to anyone and it was lovely to meet Janet who looked after us extremely well. Thank you! :)

It was a very nice and unique stay. The views from the hut are fabulous and Janet was very helpful and tried her best. We can really recommend the Skye Shepherd Huts!

Tips:

You should definitely spend some time on the northern part of the island to hike in the mountains or try to spot seals near the coast.

A real 'get away from it all' place, we spent 7 nights there!. It's like we died and went to heaven. The hut was small and very cosy with loads of little things supplied to make our stay really comfortable. Janet was a terrific host and the breakfast every morning was beautiful and wholesome. The little stove in the hut warmed the hut within a few minutes on the one cold evening we had to light it. Matches, kindling, fire lighters and wood to burn were all supplied too.

Tips:

We ate most nights in an restaurant at the end of our road (4 miles) called the Claymore which was lovely and the service and staff could not be faulted.....even to the point where we were offered and given a glass of wine on the house when they knew we were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary!!! We did quiet a bit of touring around the south part of the island and once you leave the main road, driving is a bit more hazardous but stay alert and all will be fine. A trip to the island of canna from elgol is worth it to see the bird life and we were lucky enough to have Dolphins swim along side the boat on our return. We would liked to have spent longer than 1 and a half hours on the island but time didn't allow that. The scenery is breathtaking and there are plenty of well marked walks (easy to the more strenuous) all within an hours drive or so of the huts.

Lovely, cosy, friendly, quiet and really nice thoughtful little touches. So nice to go somewhere where dogs are made to feel really welcome too! Thank you for a lovely stay - next time we will stay longer!

Another fantastic stay at the Shepherd huts, a haven of peace and tranquility! As always Janet is friendly and helpful but not intrusive and we enjoyed the opportunity to hang out with her many animals :) Breakfasts were delicious and Janet and her brother were good enough to give us a push when our car got stuck in the mud! Can't wait to go back.

Tips:

A hearty meal can be enjoyed at The Claymore

We had three nights at the Sky Shepherds Huts in March and whilst the weather blew a gale we were snugg and warm in the huts. All the reviews regarding Janet and her hospitality are correct and we can thoroughly reconmend this as a romantic glamping experience.

Supernice accommodation in a remote place. The hut is very comfortable and has running water and heating. We could light a fireplace (next to the midge killer machine!) and the breakfast was super with fresh orange juice and fresh eggs...

Tips:

Creelers restaurant for nice seafood. Walking near Elgol or Slichagan.

Please feel free to use the following as a review on any of your listings: We had an absolutely fantastic night in Janets shepherds hut! It's just a shame that we couldn't spend more time there. The hut itself is great. We stayed in February, but despite the cold outside, the log burner kept us plenty toasty enough. It is packed with everything you could need too. Location wise - the setting is stunning. The view over the lochs and mountains in the morning was simply breathtaking. We went for the Cooked breakfast in the morning which Janet brought to us in little bento type boxes. Never had a breakfast quite like it in terms of presentation. Simply superb. We look forward to going back one day, and will certainly recommend it to our friends. Martin Granger
