    “We loved our stay at Scotisay house, the house, location and set up met our expectations.”

    Everything was of good quality and if a high standard. I completely understand that due to COVID things looked slightly different this year - but it would have been nice to know before we arrived that we had no access to a second fridge and a bbq and fire pit that were locked in the garage. I did speak to both the housekeeper and owner who said it was down to COVID and extra cleaning. This made no sense to us as we had been told that non essential items had been removed.that Inside the house there were clearly some non essential items ( eg coffee machine , soft furnishings such as cushions ). While non of this spoiled our holiday - I would also like the owner to know - that with 6 adults it would be nice to have a set of 6 items, ie 6 wine glasses, 6 side plates. There were only 7 mugs and 4 cups and saucers, 5 side plates which makes it tricky when trying to save on time/washing up. There were some other brandy style/wine goblets that were so dusty they had clearly not been used ( not cleaned) for some considerable time. Again non of this spoiled our stay - but if there had been a more considered approach to the crockery ad equipment available then the stay here would have been perfect. Just several niggles - we suspect the real reason we couldn’t access the garage was the owners wasn’t quite ready for the season as his bikes were in the garage!

Summary

The property

Scotisay View Cottage is a luxury 4 star self-catering cottage which, from its elevated position, commands panoramic views across the sea to Skye. The cottage is privately situated and away from the road and so tranquility comes as standard. With 3 bedrooms and 3 bath/shower rooms, sharing a holiday with friends and family is made as comfortable as possible. Even the four legged members of the household are welcome. The house is warm, welcoming and the perfect place to relax and enjoy the panorama of sea, islands and sky. As the cottage is only 5 miles from Tarbert and the ferry terminal, you are soon at your destination after what may have been a long journey but we can guarantee you will soon unwind and settle into "island time". Drinishader is one of the many small crofting communities along what is known as The Golden Road which winds and twists through the East Coast of Harris - sometimes called The Bays because of its miniature fjords. The road is a single track road that connects all the tiny hamlets which have Viking or Gaelic names. The scenery is spectacular, encompassing what is sometimes described as a 'lunar' landscape, with rock that shines in the sun and beautiful lochs and inlets where seals bask on the rocks and a wide range of birds are to be seen. Why is it called The Golden Road? Rumour has it that it cost so much money that the locals wryly observed that "it must be made of gold"! Harris has some of the most astonishing beaches to be found in the whole of the British Isles so be sure to enjoy them at Luskentyre, Horgabost, Seilibost and Scarista - fabulous expanses of sand and dunes with the machair cloaked in meadow flowers from spring until late summer and all within easy reach of Scotisay View Cottage. For those who like to eat out we recommend the Harris Gin Distillery in Tarbert for lunch. Hill walkers will appreciate being close to the North Harris Hills and kayakers can launch from the jetty in Drinishader.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location

No village

Chatsworth 1 mile; Bakewell 5 miles.

The pretty village of Baslow lies at the north end of stately Chatsworth House - home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. The village has many unusual and picturesque features including a triple-arched river bridge guarded by a toll house whose doorway is only 3 1/2 feet high! Baslow offers a range of village amenities including shops, pubs and restaurants. Close by is Bakewell, the capital of the Peak District, and home of the famous Bakewell pudding (definitely not tart!), still made locally to an old and secret recipe. Bakewell is at the scenic heart of the Peak District, and with Alton Towers also within easy touring distance, there is plenty for the whole family to enjoy.
