Wildlife fans will swoon: spot whales, dolphins, eagles, seals, otters and deer; wander through tall grasses sprinkled with bluebells, wild garlic and rare orchids. Stride over stunning hills, cycle your socks off, fish from the shore – there’s much to do and see from your award-winning architect designed retreat on the hill. Inside is equally invigorating: white walls, painted oak floors, floor to ceiling windows for long and wide views, a crisply dressed bed, super shower room, a squashy elephant grey sofa facing the sea and a sleek kitchen on the side. Best of all it’s deeply secretive: lovely Robbie and Ian are just down the hill but you can’t see them and they can’t see you. Instead they leave you alone with a welcome tray of treats and a good bottle of wine. If it all sounds too rustic for you then take heart! There’s widescreen TV with satellite, WiFi, a smart music system, DVDs and designer furniture; The Three Chimneys is a short hop as is the Red Roof cafe. Lovers will feel entwined but there’s a surprisingly spacious feel so you won’t be getting in each other’s way. Sublime.

An Airigh was a dream come true. Ian and Robbie are perfect hosts and made sure every detail was attended to and were always there to lend a helping hand. The house itself is just as depicted and to say it's spotlessly clean would be an understatement. Heavenly to look out onto the sea, the ever-changing skies and the wandering sheep down by the cliff. A perfect house in a perfect spot !

We spent our honeymoon at An Airigh and loved every second in the property. Ian and Robbie, thank you so much for a peaceful and restorative stay. We loved all the local products from Skyeskyns and Skye weavers. We visited both and bought several items for our home. The house was exceptionally clean, kitchen well equipped and everything excellent quality. The view from the property was absolutely stunning. Ian and Robbie were lovely and welcoming and we even got a little tour of their magnificent Croft, with their fruit and veg growing. The welcome gifts were so thoughtful. We will be back.

This beautiful contemporary home for two has magnificent views of Loch Dunvegan from all three rooms and feels incredibly cosy and warm. We received a very detailed email prior to our arrival but Iain and Robbie were on hand (although never intrusive) to provide further helpful information about the area. The house has everything you would need with perfect attention to detail. Highly recommended.

Annie, London

We are thoroughly enjoying our stay at an airigh on the isle of skye. The accommodation is fabulous. Everything you need and more. Great location and Robbie and Ian are just adorable. Weather is horrendous but we don't care, we just hunker down in this warm and cosy living room and watch the clouds drift by. Can we stay here forever please? ☺☺

Francesca, Staffordshire

We had a wonderful holiday at An Airigh . The house suits so well in the wonderful landscape. The interior is a happy surprise of beautiful design. All created with much skill and love. Relaxing on the sofa we enjoyed the stunning views. Flocks of gannets diving for fish. A few times we saw a group of dolphins chasing and jumping over the waves. The 'front garden' is a botanic jewel box of biodiversity. An Airigh has great sense of place! Ian and Robby are very nice and friendly hosts. We felt very welcome and at home. Mind you, they work very hard to restore and manage the croft so well.

Jan, Oentsjerk

Wonderful stay at An Airigh, Ian and Robbie have a wonderful cottage. Everything we needed and more was there. They are wonderful hosts. Weather was amazing .Saw lots of birds including a Golden Eagle. Would certainly visit again and would highly recommend.

Jill, Ashbourne

An Airigh is so special - secluded, intimate, romantic, unique. We never tired of the gorgeous views over the cliffs to Loch Dunvegan. There is a lot to do in the area and we hiked everyday. We even enjoyed the storm that came through and felt very safe and secure in this cozy little home. It can take a bit of driving to get to and from An Airigh but that is also the beauty of it.

Kerri, Venice

Absolutely excellent accommodation in stunning location. The house has glorious views and is very well equipped. The owners are very pleasant and could not be more helpful. I will definitely recommend it to any family members who are looking to visit the Isle of Skye.

Brian, Sandbach

Just the perfect place to spend our Silver Wedding. An Airigh is special and compliments the landscape and view. It's a beautiful calm and relaxing space. It's cosy and bright and has the best of everything available. The bed is comfortable but take eye shades as the light still manages to penetrate through the beautiful Skye Weavers tweed curtains (highly suggest a visit to them). Ian and Robbie were brilliant in answering my many questions before hand and provided a lovely welcome gift. If you need to just get away then this is where you need to go.

Su, Aberdeen

We stayed a week at An Airigh and couldn't have been happier. The accommodation itself is outstanding, with great attention to detail. Despite being very modern, it is also very cosy and homely. It's in a remote, North Western corner of Skye and is very peaceful. Opening the bedroom curtain every morning to see the wonderful scenery, including the snow-capped mountains of Harris across the water, was magical. All email communication with the owners was efficient and friendly and it was a pleasure to meet Ian when he popped round to welcome us. All in all, a thoroughly lovely holiday.

Jonathan, London

An Airigh is an place of calm, tranquility and luxury. Amazing and stunning property with picture postcard views - everything you need for a fabulous holiday. Ian and Robbie have created a luxurious place in a great location for you to explore the whole of Skye; whether its to visit the Fairy pools, distilleries or the Three Chimneys or just sit and relax; watching the views from the comfy sofa. Nothing has been forgotten in this property to make your stay great and nothing is any trouble for them - they make you feel so welcome - it's a home away from home. We did not want to leave!

James & debbie, Glasgow

We had a fantastic week on Skye at An Airigh. The setting and scenery are fabulous and An Airigh is a great base from which to explore. Robbie and Ian were extremely welcoming and have created a lovely place to stay.

Luke, London

We had a fantastic week on Skye at An Airigh. Amazing setting and base from which to explore the whole island. Beautifully furnished with local crafts (most of which we subsequently visited and bought). Robbie and Ian were extremely welcoming and on hand if we needed anything. Would happily return again to escape busy city life.

Michael, Cambridge

An Airigh is an outstanding location, fantastic views over Loch Dunvegan and a great base to explore the Isle of Skye. Ian and Robbie were great hosts - if you are planning a visit to the Misty Isle then this is the place to stay!!

Paul, Preston

I asked the question why choose this area of Skye to live, after the week I know the answer, Galtrigll is a very special place. Everything in An Airigh is first class, so easy to step through the door and just relax, the accommodation is so well designed and very clean and warm every thing so easy to use and so so comfortable. We got a very warm welcome from Ian and Robbie thank you. The shop and cafe, also Skye weavers are worth a visit every one so friendly. Glendale web site is full of useful information.

Gavin, Inverurie

We had a lovely time. An Airigh was perfect, the standard of the accommodation was amazing and tastefully furnished with some of the local products. The views from An Airigh are breathtaking and the loch provides a wealth of wildlife to keep you occupied. Ian and Robbie have provided everything you need to plan anything from local hikes and site seeing, our expectations were well and truly exceeded. We would recommend An Airigh to anyone.

Andrew, Poole

So comfortable, so peaceful. Drinking in the view every day is definitely soul-restoring. Attentive (but never intrusive) hosts. We loved it.

Melanie, Lincoln

A peaceful location with stunning views across the Loch where we spotted porpoises feeding and gannets diving. The strategically placed sofa affords the perfect panorama where you can spend hours watching the ever changing weather and amazing marine wildlife. The silence strikes you; perfect for total relaxation. Ian and Robbie are on hand if needed but will respect your privacy and leave you alone to ponder or paint meditate or muse. Recommended for anyone needing a place to retreat, relax or recuperate.

Martin, Newcastle-upon-tyne

We had an absolutely fantastic stay in An Airigh and have already recommended it to a number of friends and family. An unbelievably beautiful setting, with incredible views, and such lovely hosts. Everything we could have wanted was provided for - the property was really well presented, tidy and an ideal and very thoughtful design for 2. Already missing the log fires coming back from one of the many local walks on the mountains or beaches. A perfect getaway - we hope to visit again soon!

Rowan, London

Our favourite 'hidden bolt hole' There is simply nothing better, it' s relaxing and beautiful. A little corner of calm with it's amazing views, caring owners who really mean it when they say if you want anything just ask. Lovely vegetables (thanks once again Robbie) . Ian and Robbie really go that extra mile and reminiscing on our recent stay just puts a smile on my face.
