Cottage Review:  

This property was absolutely disgusting when we arrived. Black mould in every room, broken mirrors and pictures, cheese under the bed and not to mention the constant flies, dead and alive throughout the property. The beds in the twin bedroom are extremely uncomfortable and There are some serious health and safety issues here, mainly windows not being able to open and a detached string used to tie the blind back in bedroom two. There was nowhere to hang clothes in bedroom two. The dirt down the side of the bed was awful, the shelf in the bathroom was hanging off the wall, the fridge needed cleaned before we could use it, a washing machine is provided but there is no tumble dryer or airing screen to hang up washing to dry. I have photographs of all the issues we came across on our stay and I am happy to share these with anyone before they make a booking. I do not recommend this property to anyone, save your money and enjoy a holiday in a nice clean cottage.

Cottage Review:  

Lovely cozy cottage with incredible views. The pictures provided didn?t do the house justice as found it was bigger than we thought, spacious kitchen with loads of room for supplies and well equipped with fully working appliances. The walk books in the living room were very useful for planning what we were going to do during the week.

The house had easy parking for a large van with sufficient space to turn around.

Well positioned accommodation which meant we were able to walk down to the beach and drive to the things we wanted to see easily!

The cottage got good phone signal which meant we could use devices as normal. Tv and DVD player worked well the couple of times we watched television on the evening and there were no issues with reception.

Thank you so much for the lovely stay and i would love to stay again! :)

Cottage Review:  

This is my second time staying at Amber?s Cottage - I had to come back!! The cottage is absolutely lovely, spotless condition, comfortable and quaint. There are wonderful touches to the decor, accentuating the traditional Scottish feel of the place. We spent a lot of our time out and about but it was so wonderful to come back to the cosy cottage. As it?s October, the sun set at around 5pm and we loved returning to the warmth of the cottage to cook together, relax and watch TV, and play board games. The TV reception was spot on, and we had great phone signal and data (NOT THAT YOU COME TO SKYE TO SIT ON YOUR PHONE THE WHOLE TIME). We wandered down to the beach which was roughly a 10 minute walk away and you can see it from the window. The views are incredible. We will 100% be returning to Amber?s Cottage and are sad to be going home! Thank you so much. We?d move in permanently if we could!!!

Cottage Review:  

Stunning location and views. Couldn?t fault what we found to be a very cosy and clean cottage with all amenities you could want. No idea what other reviews mean when they complain about the track. We were there in snow and hail and found it perfectly easy to drive on. Maybe other reviewers aren?t used to the outside world. Didn?t find the track steep, beach was walkable. Although we chose to drive, local shop was excellent and had everything we could need. Local takeaway (hungry gull) was great, reasonably priced and really accommodating!

We had tv the whole time with not one issue. I also had 4G the whole time on EE. But neither the TV or the internet is why you go to Skye! We spend all day making the most of the outdoors, really close to the Quiraing mountain walks, close to old man of Storr, kilt rock and the beach. Spent the evenings cosy in front of the fire. Perfect location in my opinion! Wendy is a lovely host and great at communication.

I want to buy the cottage!

Cottage Review:  

Excellent location overlooking the beach with fantastic panoramic views. Ambers cottage is cosy, very clean and well equipped. Comfortable beds gave us a perfect night's sleep after days out sightseeing. Pet friendly with enclosed gardens (perfect for our pug). This is the 4th time we have stayed at Ambers cottage and it certainly won't be the last. A perfect retreat to escape and forget the current worries of the world. Would recommend anyone to choose to stay here.

Cottage Review:  

Can't really fault the cottage, comfy beds, slept really well. A hair dryer would have been appreciated, but otherwise the cottage was well equipped and clean. Photos a bit deceptive, we thought the sea was closer than it is, the 'beach' not very enticing. Not much in the way of local ammenities in the area, two shops which close quite early and don't open at all on a Sunday. No pubs, you have to go into Portree which is about 13 miles away on a single track road.

Cottage Review:  

We enjoyed a 2 week stay here. The cottage has an amazing view of the Quiraing ridge and the beach. An easy 10-15 minute walk to the beach nearby, or a good walk down to the pier. The cottage was clean, tidy and suited all our needs. The owner and housekeeper were great at making sure we had all we needed. Shops nearby are limited and expensive. We did our big shop at Portree and then just topped up where needed nearby. Portree is about half an hour drive away. Had a fabulous stay here and would highly recommend to anyone looking to get away from it all. No

Not very clean, bedroom light not working, shower not brilliant - kitchen table is a pull out with 4 chairs under which makes the kitchen difficult to work in - no hair dryer or welcome pack - beach is a good 15 minute walk although as all areas in Skye the views are stunning - Portree your best place to shop local are not good
