Scotland Holiday - review

We had an excellent week. The house was beautifully situated with gorgeous views across Loch Pooltiel to the massive cliffs at Dunvegan Head. It was a joy to wake up every day with that view. The facilities in the house were everything you could wish for: very comfortable, very smart. The house was warm despite the cold outside, and in the quiet of the location I slept like a log.

General information:

The house:

 ➤ Pooltiel House on Skye Scotland is a self catering, three bedroom open plan coastal holiday home. The house is designed around one of its key features: a spacious plot on the coast of Loch Pooltiel with beautiful views. You can enjoy widespread seaviews from the kitchen, living, bedrooms and upstairs bathroom. The pictures on this page give you an idea of how the house is orientated. It is a sea view house. You will find more photos of Pooltiel House under the property photo tab of this site.

Entering the house, there is a hall (with a large separate toilet) that leads to to the open plan living. The kitchen with dining table is on your left. The living with a wood burning stove is in front of you. Both are dominated by large windows that enable impressive views towards the ocean and Dunvegan Head with its cliffs that are several hundred feet high.

In the living on your right is the ash stairway to the first floor and the door leading to the en suite bedroom on the ground floor. On the first floor is an ample landing with two Velux windows. This landing gives access to two bedrooms with the traditional dormer windows and a separate showerroom with a toilet and a big Velux window. All upstairs rooms have seaview.
