Everything ok in the flat. Very good starting point to explore the island. Perfect (and I literally mean it) accommodation for a family with kids.

Iona was a great host, very kind and always available in case we needed something. Her house is located in a very small place on Skye - perfect for relaxing your mind. We had an awesome view through the windows on the beautiful landscape and the many sheep and enjoyed our stay very much. Thank you so much Iona for sharing your beautiful home with us! We would love to come back some day! All the best for you and you family (and Max and Zelda)!

My name is Iona, I live in the main house underneath the apartment with Joseph and our 4 children. We have been letting out the apartment since the end of 2012.

I am from Skye and have lived here for most of my life. I spent 6 years living in Inverness after leaving school but returned to Skye in my early twenties.

Joseph is from Lancaster and is a skilled tiler, painter and decorator. He runs his own business, Skye Tiling, and is very successful and very busy.

We offer the apartment with the idea that it is the sort of place we would like to stay in if we were travelling: clean, well looked after and reasonably priced. Our previous guests tend to agree with us :-)
