WE SPENT 3 NIGHTS IN THIS LOVELY COTTAGE AND WISH WE COULD HAVE STAYED LONGER. IT WAS AN EXCELLENT LOCATION TO EXPLORE ALL OF SKYE. JUST A SHORT DRIVE TO THE FAIRY POOLS, AND YOU CAN WALK TO THE TALISKER DISTILLERY. THE VIEW IS BEAUTIFUL OVERLOOKING THE TINY TOWN OF CARBOST, LOCH HARPORT AND THE CUILLIN MOUNTAIN RANGE. THE COTTAGE WAS VERY CLEAN. THERE WAS A WASHER/DRYER WHICH WE WERE HAPPY TO HAVE. THE WELL APPOINTED MODERN KITCHEN HAS EVERYTHING YOU NEED. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS RENTAL AND WOULD STAY HERE AGAIN.

My wife and I absolutely loved Dorothy's place. Being at the top of a very tall hill overlooking Carbost with the water and the mountains in full view (not to mention Talisker Distillery) was even more picturesque than we could have imagined. And the house itself was spacious, clean, and quiet. Truly a wonderful retreat to which we looked forward to returning every day after time spent hiking, exploring, and eating and drinking in the surrounding area. Highly recommended!

Dorothy's house on Skye is absolutely immaculate. There were only two of us that stayed there for a few nights but it would suit 2 couples or a family perfectly. The house is well kitted out for cooking and relaxing. Very tastefully decorated and everything was to a high standard. The location is not right on the loch but on the road above, situated as the middle house in a row of three. The views from the house are gorgeous. There is a tiny store nearby for bits and pieces and we used it. There is an oyster take away place nearby which we did not use. Anything else requires a drive to reach.

Very sorry to not have met Dorothy, but the cottage was amazing. Definitely 5 Star, brand new, modern and had every amenity needed. Loved the view and the little town of Carbost. Folks at the Old Inn were very welcoming and friendly. It was tricky finding it at night, but the folks at the Wee Stop in town provided good directions.

Tigh Fraoich is a beautiful house in the most stunning location with incredible views. It is in a location that is a great base to explore Skye from. The house itself is very spacious, spotlessly clean and full of all the amenities you could need, and more. So much thought has been put into decorating and there are lovely touches all around the property. There are even lots of maps, books and other information to help you to make decisions about where to visit on the island. The kitchen is huge and fully equipped if you want to stay in. There is a great little pub a few minutes drive away if you don't want to cook. Dorothy's instructions and correspondence prior to arriving were great and we had no trouble finding the property, despite it being quite remote. We loved staying here and can't fault the property. We only wish we had booked for longer to enjoy it more! Would definitely recommend to others.

Mrs Morisson was a splendid host, going out of her way to show us to the chalet and helping us to settle in nicely. The chalet itself is immaculately situated and up kept, and words alone cannot do the home justice. There was everything we needed to make the stay a thoroughly memorable one. If the views from the chalet weren't enough, the amenities and kitchen facilities were ample for us to cook up plenty of heartwarming meals. The beds and sheets were clean and luxurious, ensuring a good night's rest. The sofa in the living room was comfortable enough for me to fall asleep on after dinner on several occasions. All in all, it's safe to say that this is one of those finds on Air BnB that will undoubtedly prove to be something special.

My name is Dorothy and along with my husband we have been letting self-catering properties since 1990. All the cottages have built by ourselves using the skills of local tradesmen. Each house/cottage is different and have been constantly upgraded over the years. All the properties we have are in the area of Minginish where both my husband, myself and our family grew up in. As we live near to the house a short call or text to us is all that is needed if you had a problem or are in need of some help.
