We loved our stay at the long house. The accommodation is perfect, clean, stylish and in an amazing setting. Sitting outside on the decking with binoculars looking for sea life in Loch Pooltiel was a particular highlight. Brenda was a great host and was always at hand to answer queries we had. Will definitely be back in the future.

Brenda's house is a great place for a true nature loving family to stay. It offers everything to feel like home and has a stunning view. Sky is an amazingly beautiful island and I can only recommend to visit and explore it. We had a wonderful family time.
I'm Brenda, a Mum, Dog & Chicken owner and wife to a gorgeous engineer called Gary. We adore our house on Skye and would love other people to be able to sample the stunning views, tranquillity and beauty of Glendale and Lower Milovaig. Also, we are very proud of our 'wee shed' over-looking Loch Poolteil and would be pleased for people to be able to relax and enjoy this special house in a very special place. Brenda.
