“We loved our stay at The Two Byres. The house is stunningly beautiful and in the perfect location. Loved the linen bedding and the kitchen was superbly equipped to allow us to do our own cooking. The attention to every little detail really shows, thank you. Would love to return some time!”

Roberts family (2022)

“Fantastic accommodation. Will return again in future if we holiday on Isle of Skye. Great attention to details. This is a home away from home.”

Jawaz and Belinda, Surrey (2021)

“Very well communicated arrival and information especially under the COVID restrictions. Absolutely amazing house in a beautiful and quiet location. We would absolutely be recommending to friends and have already had friends enquire about the house from our pics. Would love to come back soon!”

Emery family (2020)

“We loved to be in individual contact with you. Thank you, Hanne, especially for calling at arrival. Very comfortable beds and sofas. Standard of kitchen utensils is very high, especially the Jura coffee machine.
The house is very cosy and modern. The views out of the windows are amazing. The bed linen is perfect. Loved to walk on the wooden floor. Everything was clean and beautiful. And so much more… We didn´t want to leave the house, would like to return as soon as possible.”

Katrin and Monika, Germany (2019)

“I have never seen such a well outfitted place in my travels. And the setting is stunning. We do hope that we can return! Thank you for sharing your home!”

Anne and Michael, Switzerland (2019)

“What a wonderful Easter we have had at The Two Byres this year, exceptional weather and amazing views. Our fourth visit here and the house and landscape never cease to impress. We had a great time at the Coral Beach, Talisker Bay, Dunvegan Castle + Gardens, and a very lengthy walk at the tip of Skye along the Quirang. We love coming at this time of the year – great weather and less crowds. Looking forward to returning next year.”

Jessica, Andrew, Katie & Sophie (2019)

“We have had a lovely time on Skye – we have been all over the island varying activities by the weather, but scenery spectacular no matter. The house is very well thought out, welcoming and comfortable. Sometimes hard to get out as so enjoyable looking out the beautiful windows!”

Karen and Andy, Inverurie (2019)

“House and views are breathtaking, even better than the pictures on the website. Perfect cleaned everywhere. Very tasteful, beautiful architecture, appropriate to the landscape. The beds were comfortable, we enjoyed the bedlinen. The kitchen is very well equipped, you can prepare really everything you want from cakes to roasts … The knives are sharp 😉 and there is a tap with boiling water, wow.

We would highly recommend the house to friends. Its really special, the place, the views, the architecture, the decoration. We enjoyed every day and will return.”

Christina and Stefan, Stuttgart (2018)

“This really doesn’t disappoint and even exceeds the expectations we had when we booked. Clean and smart throughout. The owners have thought of most things you could want. This is a stunning property that was comfortable and stylish, it enabled us to take full advantage of the beautiful location. Perfect!”

Tonkins/Howe family, Somerset (2018)

“Absolutely gorgeous house! Immaculately presented, very high standard.
Would maybe appreciate a telescope to take in the fantastic views but that’s just a personal preference! We loved it so much we have booked a further 2 weeks in June 2019 and possibly Christmas 2018.”

Denise and Ian, Lancashire (2018)

“Everything about Two Byres was perfect and Hanne was so helpful. The weather was not too kind to us but the fact that the house was so comfortable and bright meant we were content when forced indoors to read and enjoy the amazing views when they appeared.
I’ve never stayed in the same holiday accommodation twice so sadly it’s doubtful that I would return but I would certainly recommend it to anyone visiting Skye.”

Debbie and Carole, The Dale (2018)

“The house is immaculate. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It’d be hard to beat for quality of accommodation. Your beds and the linen are the most comfortable we’ve ever slept on.”

Genevieve & David, London (2017)

“Additional information about things to see and do, great location and wonderful house. On top of that a great welcome “basket”. The interior is tastefully furnished, very comfortable and lovely as well on the outside. Kitchen very well equipped, Wi-Fi Computer works great, good bikes. We had a great time at the Two Byres and we fully recommend the house to friends and family! Looking forward to coming back.”

Fam. Tschumper, Switzerland (2017)

“The best house we have been in and we have stayed in a few very acceptable places. Very high standard of cleanliness, fantastic attention to detail.”

Tony, Elke, Kris and Kim, Fife (2017)

“Booking was effort-less and the arrival could not have been easier. An amazing house with furnishings all chosen with great care to make it the best holiday house we have ever rented. We had a great holiday and would love to come back some day. If we decided to come to Skye again it would be the first place we check.”

D. Gibbons, Forest of Dean (2016)

“The Two Byres is a spectacular property, beautifully furnished and maintained, with everything we could have wished for. We would recommend it to anyone in a heartbeat. Thank you for sharing your home with us!”

Tara & Simona, Toronto (2016)

“We have recommended the house to all our friends! The house gives us everything we need for a family holiday in a beautiful place and we are keen to return soon.”

Jessica, Andrew, Katie & Sophie (2016)

“We had a wonderful time at The Two Byres, the house was equipped with great thought and attention to detail. It had everything we needed (and more!) the welcome gifts and bread, etc made the arrival so much easier, this is a thoughtful touch! We will consider returning, we will certainly recommend to friends. We wish you all the very best of luck in the future with your venture.”

Jon & Roxanne (2016)

“We had a wonderful stay at The Two Byres. The view from the house was beautiful, we woke up each morning in awe. The house is brilliantly and thoughtfully equipped with everything we could need and was immaculately clean and sparkling when we arrived. We went on wonderful coastal walks each day and had two delicious meals at the Lochbay Restaurant.”

J.M., London (2016)

“We could not wish for a better holiday. The house is spotlessly clean, well maintained and very well equipped. The Two Byres is so stylish – stunning in fact – but also very comfortable, with a lovely relaxed, peaceful atmosphere and a good ‘feel’ about it. The setting is spectacular, with the most amazing views.”

Ruth and Rachel, St Helens (2015)

“We could choose either to drive along the small roads for visits or fishing around Skye or relax watching the weather changing through the large windows, with a glass and the fire in the stove. Thanks for the attention to detail, from the bed linen, the home equipment to kitchen tools, bikes and the smoking oven … We hope to have the opportunity to come back soon.”

Sophie, Gilles, Saskia, Tristan and Léandre, France (2015)

“Our holiday at The Two Byres was wonderful. The house, the landscape and the management could only be said to be marvellous. We would happily consider returning, and certainly recommending it. A dream.”

Judith, Jacques & Isabelle, Belgium (2015)

“The Two Byres – the most perfect place to enjoy the most perfect holiday! The Two Byres provided us with the best possible setting and base from which to explore the beautiful Isle of Skye. The house is brilliantly and thoughtfully designed to take full advantage of the breath-taking scenery and provided us with the right mix of social and private space. It is decorated tastefully and equipped with anything and everything we might have needed.

It must rate as one of the best we’ve stayed in ever! Wish we could have stayed longer than the 2 weeks we did … but there is always a next time! We will be back!!”

Stuart, Christelle and Tanya, South Africa (2014)

“La maison des Two Byres était un cadre exceptionnel, chaleureux et accueillant pour notre semaine à Skye. Nous n’aurions pas pu rêver de meilleur endroit où passer cette semaine : c’était calme, propre, extrêmement beau, et par moments magique. Hanne fut une hôte parfaite, toujours à l’écoute et nous recommandant de nombreuses activités. Nous les recommandons sans aucune réserve, et espérons y revenir un jour.”

Anne & Bruno S. (2014)

“We really did enjoy Isle of Skye and your beautiful Home, the views and constantly changing light, marvelous.”

JG, Netherlands (2014)

“Return visit, and hopefully will return again and again. A very special home in a very special location. Lovely welcome pack – house is fully equipped home from home and everything we needed was there. First class!”

Jude & Gordon, Glasgow (2014)

“We enjoyed the house very much, as we did the walks on the peninsula. We very much enjoyed the cleanliness of the house, down to the dishes, glasses and cutlery, which we encountered the first time to such a high standard in a rented holiday house.”

A & K (2014)

“We loved the holiday and the house. The standard of equipment was very high. Used the kitchen to it’s full potential. Enjoyed sunny times on the sheltered terrace and cosy times in front of the fire. More than satisfied with our stay, would definitely consider returning and definitely recommend to friends.”

Irene & John, Jersey (2014)

“Thank you for your hospitality and the use of your lovely home in Waternish. Matias had a very special weekend, and I could not have hoped for things to have gone better than they did – nor for the house to be more beautiful than in it’s pictures! We look forward to coming back again, though I don’t think that we’ll ever be as lucky with the weather!”

Pearlie & Matias, London (2014)

“Thank you for a wonderful half term week in your lovely house. It was very windy and often the rain was torrential, but it did not spoil our enjoyment of the beauty of Skye. We were not expecting the weather to be good, which is why we selected such a well appointed and comfortable house. Having seen the photographs we were expecting it to be good, but it was even better than we had hoped. The quality of furnishings and equipment is first class. We would have no hesitation recommending it to our family and friends.

We took day trips to Neist Point, Uig, Kilt Falls and Portree. We ate in some lovely places including The Three Chimneys which was excellent and exceeded our very high expectations. We also had some great fish and chips and mussels in The Stein Inn. We would also recommend The Arts Cafe near The old Man of Storr and anything and everything from Jann’s Cakes!”

David, Melanie, Anna and Lucy, London (2013)

“We had a wonderful holiday on Skye, The Two Byres is in a great location with views of Loch Bay from almost all of the windows. The house is so well designed and equipped we had everything and more than we needed. We have stayed in a lot of self catered cottages and this one is by far the best in terms of comfort and luxury, we felt at home and well cared for. We drove around most of the island and planned some fantastic walks, our main aim was to see some wildlife and we were lucky enough to see eagles and dolphins. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing place to holiday then Skye is the place and The Two Byres is most definitely the accommodation to book.”

Lorraine & Richard (plus 2 older sons), Farnham (2013)

“The house is truly amazing! Beautiful location, the house is stunning, the sun is shining, and we are sitting on the terrace with a glass of wine … having a great time! We enjoyed it so much, when we visit Skye next time we definitely will book the house again.”

Nathalie & JP, Amsterdam (2013)

“We had a wonderful holiday on Skye, Waternish is a lovely spot. We really enjoyed your house both from the inside and the outside. It was very well equipped – we didn’t miss anything and felt very much at home. We were happy to have all your good suggestions about where to go and where to eat. We enjoyed having dinner at the Edinbane Inn on a Sunday where there was music. We also liked Stein Inn where we had a good lunch. We hope to be back some time in the future.”

Marianne & Peter, Nødebo (2013)

“We have visited Skye many times, and the Two Byres brings a whole new dimension. The house is stunning in its design and comfort and practicality, it enjoys the most spectacular of views and enjoys the sunshine morning and night. It was simply spectacular and we hope to return.”

Jude & Gordon, Glasgow (2013)

“The Two Byres was more than a cottage; it was a home for us, a special home where we felt so well that we are eager to return as soon as possible. All was so extremely well prepared, thoughtful, attentive and comfortable in every detail, that we felt immediately at ease. Actually, the stay in The Two Byres made our visit to Skye special. Not only for it’s exquisite interior and architecture, also the views were gorgeous, changing constantly with light and weather – it was pure pleasure!”

Gesa & Michel, Geneva (2012)
