Love from Both Sides of the Pond
Wonderfully appointed and situated self-catering cottage. Even got a half show of the Aurora. The star of the show was ‘Griff’, the dog whom I suspect has almost been dognapped by other guests as well.

Your Cottage is Delightful
Thank you for the lovely cake, wine & eggs. Your cottage is delightful – one of the best we have stayed in. The weather could have been better, but that did not stop us exploring this wonderful part of Scotland. We would love to come again.

Many thanks for a warm welcome to a lovely cottage. Mixed weather, but we managed five munros & the Old Man of Storr, a boat trip to see seals & admired the fantastic scenery.

What a Wonderful Week
Thank you Lisa and David for allowing us to stay in their wonderful cottage. We’ve been blessed with a gorgeous week of weather allowing us to explore this stunning area of the Highlands. Highlights include Loch Coruisk, driving around Skye, Coral Beach, Plockton, Sleat, Buth Bheag (nom, nom!), bird watching outside the window, playing with Griff and the weaether. We will be back.

The Cottage is Exceptionally Comfortable
Firstly, we would like to thank you Lisa & David for your very warm welcome and for the welcome gifts – very generous of you. the cake was amazing, the eggs very tasty and the bottle of wine superb. The cottage is exceptionally comfortable, very clean and warm and a pleasure to come back to at the end of the day. The location is stunningly beautiful and will stay in the memory as a wonderful holiday. It is very well placed for visiting Wester Ross and beyond and the Isle of Skye. Have had some wonderful views despite the showers in between the sunshine.We would love to come back here. Thank you both once again. Recommend the Plockton Inn for seafood.

Hope to Return Some Day
We’ve had a perfect week here and will be sad to leave. Walking highlight was the Point of Sleat on a warm, sunny day.The views were incredible. A fish van comes to the door on a Tuesday between 10-10.30 – would recommend. Also the delicious preserves at Rowan Barn, Plockton. Our hosts have been so kind and generous and that has made our stay extra special – thank you. Still more to do and see so hope to return some day soon

Had a Super Time Over New Year
Many Thanks. We made it up some munros (despite the weather) saw some snow. Enjoyed the Plockton Inn for tea & the fresh eggs and fizz were a thoughtful touch. Many thanks for such a warm and comfortable stay.

An Extremely Memorable Week
7 whole days of blue skies, the only exception being when the sky turned all shades of pink and purple for the HUGE sunrises right outside the bedroom window….The Cottage is superb. The location is great for touring around and exploring Skye…such scenery. The drive to Glenelg is an absolute must do.Staggering viewpoints over to the Five Sisters and Loch Duich. But the real treat was to visit the Brochs at Glenelg, 2000 years of history couldn’t be more tangible and yet so other worldly. Amazing. Hope to be back one day.

A Big Thank You
For a lovely holiday in a fantastic cottage. It has everything that you could need and we thoroughly enjoyed watching the birds at the feeder. The eggs, wine and cake were very much appreciated (cake was delicious!). Views and surrounding area are beautiful! We’ll most definitely be back.

Great Cottage – very comfortable – thank you. Amazingly beautiful location, wish we could take it home. This is a great base for exploring the area. Spent many hours at Kylerhea watching otters & Eagles (and lots of seals). Saw deer, eagles, sparrowhawk, great spotted woodpecker, hen harrier and many more birds from the cottage. Thanks for the cake (lovely), wine and eggs. Can’t wait to come back. Thank you

Had a Wonderful Stay
Weather has been warm and sunny for almost the whole time. David and Lisa, thank you for making our time here extra special, we hope to return again in 2017..
Posted by Retia & Pete 4th June 2016
The cottage is a home from home. It is helped by the fact that hosts are both amazing people who will help from advice through to making sure you have a satisfactory stay. We stayed from the 3/10/2015-19/10/2015. Great wifi, so good if you have Sky go you can watch your favourite channels in the evening, after walking the wonderful region during the day so much to do and great restaurants in the area.

We spent an enjoyable week in the cottage from 02/05/15. The setting was lovely and the cottage itself is extremely clean and modern. We will definitely be back and would recommend the cottage to everyone.

Arrived at Shinglebay today!
We arrived today to a very warm welcome from Catherine. A superb cottage in an idilic location. Beautiful views of the mountains from the main room and the loch only a few metres away, also visible from the cottage. We feel very lucky to have found such a gem for our week climbing some more Munros!
