        Wonderful Cottage!

        A lovely cottage in a stunning location. Warm, cozy, comfortable, and spotless. Away from the crowds, so a perfect location for a little peace and quiet. Stumbled across this cottage in the early stages of planning our trip to Scotland, and built our itinerary around our stay here. Had high expectations, and was not disappointed in the least! Our time here was much too short...

          Clean, comfortable, cosy.

          We loved our stay at Driftwood Cottage. It was very clean, warm and the view was amazing. The bed was lovely and big and comfortable. The kitchen was great and all the facilities in great working order. Good location, with shops just down the road in Staffin Village. Access was easy and the whole experience was terrific. Would love to visit again. Thank you, also, for mailing my diary to me...greatly appreciated!

            Exceeded my expectations

            Spectacular property that exceeded our expectations. The cottage is beautiful and perfectly maintained. Outside has a path to the beach and seating near the house where you can enjoy the rugged and breathtaking landscape views. Inside had everything we could possibly need. We cooked all our meals and the kitchen had all the equipment we needed. I had a few questions and and the owner answered promptly and with helpful information. I would love to return for longer. I could not recommend more highly! It's a piece of heaven.
