Kirsty's place was idyllic! Less than 10 minutes from Portree, we found the cottage centrally located for exploring Skye. Most site seeing locations we visited were less than an hour away. Inside, the cottage was charming, quiet and clean, with a beautiful view of a small lake, which was actually the finger of an ocean inlet! The cottage is beautifully decorated, and has plenty of room for 3-4 people. The kitchen is spacious and fully equipped, with lots of cupboard space for any groceries/supplies you may bring. While we didn't use the fireplace - we loved that it was available, and it would have lovely had it been a little cooler outside. There's also a library of DVDs and books if you're so inclined. Another nice feature is in the bathroom - where there's a "power shower" that you can turn on/off during your shower. (I like this for saving water and also for being able to suds up). Since we had been traveling in Scotland for several days prior to arriving on Skye, the washer (and especially the dryer) was extremely welcome. And I can't conclude this review without thanking Kirsty and her husband Ewen for their timely communication - and Ewen's assistance when we Americans couldn't figure out how to lock the door (their system is different than ours in the States). I reached out, and within an hour Ewen stopped by and showed us. It was incredibly helpful that they were nearby and so accommodating, and all of the above added together truly made our vacation one of a lifetime!
