Reviews and Comments

"Your accommodation is excellent and very well equipped, the location is stunning. We had an absolutely fantastic honeymoon and we loved the Isle of Skye. We both agreed however that we probably wouldn’t come back to Skye if it were not for your accommodation, simply because we would like to try other locations, as long as your accommodation is available however, we will be back, Calath really did make our honeymoon."

"Having returned from your beautiful house in Carbost, Isle of Skye, we just wanted to thank you. For us, ‘Calath’ was a very comfortable, relaxing home from home – everything we could have wished for in a holiday home, and more, with stunning views from almost every window! Will be in touch again soon to hopefully book another week (or maybe two) for next year"
