Reasons to visit…….

“When looking for a house to rent our main criteria was calm. We hit the jackpot with Springbank. Special thanks to the Kirks to take care of such a lovely garden.”

“What a comfortable cottage.  We loved the view from the hill out the back.  The garden is beautiful and we enjoyed having our tea on the terrace.  We felt very much at home here.”

“A wonderful week.  Thanks for all the little touches that make the cottage so homely and special.”

….and return

“Third year here – home from home. Scenery wonderful as ever. Hope to be back”

“Our first visit to Springbank – the first we hope of many. The house is ideal and the birdlife wonderful.”

“10th year at Springbank.  Cottage better than ever.”

“Second time at Springbank. Loving the new look and conservatory. See you again.”

“Another very comfortable holiday at Springbank.  We particularly liked having our meals in the conservatory with its panoramic view towards Sleat.  Hope to come again in the not too distant future.”

Enjoy the log fire

“We loved every moment spent here and want to come back again.  We were blessed with winter sunshine and the evenings were warming in front of the log fire.”

“Thanks for a lovely stay in your gorgeous cottage.  Loved the fire, very cosy and comfortable.  Elgol is a gem of a place.”

“Wet and stormy start to week – the wood burner was certainly welcome. Thanks to ‘the Kirks’ for a cosy cottage.”

The wildlife is a winner

“Had a lovely week. Have seen golden eagles on the road to Kylerhea. Fantastic. We’ve enjoyed very much the OS maps and wildlife guides – brilliant selection.”

“The swallows nesting in the byre were fascinating to watch. Hope they got their brood off OK.”

“Skye was everything we hoped it would be, so natural and wild. Hope to return.”


Always take the weather with you!

“A delightful comfortable place from which to see Skye and Cuillins in all weathers.”

“Goregous cottage. Stunning views. Diabolical weather.  The fire was a Godsend.”

“You won’t believe how hot it is. Spent afternoon in garden sunbathing. Had not packed for a heatwave – good job your garden is private!”

“The weather was much better than we expected. Felt like Spain!”

“Weather great to start but deteriorated but who cares. Skye is glorious. Cottage lovely.”

And don’t forget the sunsets

“Fantastic location – we’ve enjoyed walking, bird watching and the boat trip.  The sunset seen from the hill behind the house was amazing.”

“Your cottage is lovely as is your garden. Tonight we watched the sunset behind the Cuillins from the hill behind the house. A perfect way to end our last night here.”
