Guest feedback & photos of The Old Croft House

“Ian & Helen have provided a “stunning” get away from it all holiday home; it’s beautiful. The views from the house are breathtaking. We had a fantastic holiday spending quality time together as a family. We had plenty of walks (information provided, maps etc in the house). We also spent time relaxing and making the most of the views from the amazing extension on the side of the house that has large windows that enable you to look out to sea and the surrounding countryside (binoculars provided) Ian & Helen have thought of everything and as a “Hotelier” that’s a real compliment. To sum up our holiday it was “Exceptional” We’re already planning our return next year…”  by Paul, from the UK

“It’s an amazing place and in the nicest location on Skye.  You’ve done the house beautifully and thoughtfully, we didn’t want for anything – it’s one of the best holiday rentals we’ve had.” by Bridget from England


“We loved staying at your house.  You were right, it was good to be away from all the hustle and bustle of Portree in summer …  Such a wonderful location.  The kitchen is extremely well appointed.  Your towels are super soft and fluffy.   The garden is really coming in beautifully.  Another gorgeous sunset at your house.”  by Dagmar from Germany


“Such a wonderful week in your gorgeous cottage!  We have loved every minute, it is such a relaxing, peaceful place.”  by Tom and Clare from England

“We had a wonderful stay at Ian’s house in Balmaqueen. The location is excellent, the perfect starting point to some of the most spectacular hikes and sites; also nearby are a few nice cafes for lunch, and Portree is only 30-40 minutes’ drive (a most scenic one). The house is fantastic; it is obvious that the owners put a lot of thought and care into the remodelling. The bedrooms are modern, comfortable and cosy, and the new lounge offers beautiful views of the hills and the sea. The pictures cannot possibly do it justice. I’ll also add that the house has everything you need for however long your stay is (washer, fully equipped kitchen, proper internet, etc). We loved our stay!”  by Coralia from the U.S.

“Beautiful house.  A perfectly peaceful setting with wonderful views.  The house had everything we needed, very comfortable beds and an amazing bathroom.  We have had a very relaxing week and very warm and comfortable too.  We spent hours looking at the sea and countryside and enjoyed eating home made bread and cakes with all the time in the world.”  by Glenn and Helen from Scotland
