Kalie is the ideal host! Her place is well appointed, comfortable and has wonderful views. Everything was first rate - the accomodations, the food, the suggestions, etc. We highly recommend a stay there!

This place is perfect if you want scenery and hospitality. We had better views out the front door than we did from anywhere on the Isle of Skye. The whole Apple Cross peninsula is spectacular if you haven't driven through it before. The house was great and charming. We slept like babies and were very comfortable. And breakfast was delicious.

Lovely house and location! The pictures dont do justice. Good breakfast. Karelia, John and Isla were warm and welcoming. Our late arrival was well-accommodated. Special mention of the home-baked cakes that were awaiting us - greatly appreciated after the long but stunning drive. If you are looking for a remote yet comfortable getaway, this is your place! The popular Applecross Inn, with its fresh seafood menu and warm vibe, is only 20 minutes away.

Kalie was a gem! She makes the best breakfast and I loved the black pudding. The area is fantastic for some seclusion and the views are stunning. I can't wait to visit again!
