5/5 Excellent

Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We loved the cottage and the area. The newly remodeled cottage by James McQueen is smartly designed and very enjoyable. I highly recommend staying there. Our family has 2 adults and 2 boys ages 14 and 11. Laundry amenity is wonderfully convenient. Nice coffee, tea and milk provided. Important note: Since it is self-catering, be aware of the food shopping options. The Coop in Portree is open until 11pm and can take 25 min to get there, so stopping there on your way to Monkstadt is a good idea. There are food stores in Uig (less than 10 min), but they close at 8pm as do most if not all restaurants. Just watch the clock, not the sun, so you get food before things close. Also, double check these times online in case they change. A beautiful, historical location! Enjoy!

Le problème est que cet hébergement est complètement isolé,il faut parcourir le ne route dont les bordures sont défoncées en plusieurs endroits ( single Road track) Ce qui n’est pas é n’ai rien à dire sur la qualité de l’hébergement mais sur les conditions d’accès.....
