Surrounded by 87 acres of wild land, with its own seashore, Corry is a historic house in a world of its own. Built in 1790, Corry is one of Skye's oldest and most beautiful homes, hidden by trees, and sitting a hundred feet from the shore of Broadford Bay. The rest of the treasures of Skye are in easy reach, and Broadford and its restaurants are a walk or a short drive away.

Built in 1790, Corry lodge is an adored family home, with a personality and a story of its own. While it is lovingly prepared to welcome guests, it is also an old house, well-worn with highland life.

This is one of two rooms on the second floor of our left wing (the other is listed as the 'snug room in historic highland home by the sea'). The bedroom has an antique four poster bed, with views over the garden; in the winter, when the trees are bare, the sea (only a hundred feet away) can be seen; in the summer, the sea is hidden by the trees . If you are approaching 6 foot or over however, the bed would be a little small and the sister, 'snug', room would be better; would also note that in the summer, the sea is more a glimpse through the spectacular trees that shelter the house). There is an ensuite bathroom, with a traditional bath with handheld shower. The room is approached down a short corridor from the main entrance hall and up a short flight of stairs.

Tea and whisky on arrival; there is a sheepskin hot water bottle for cooler nights; Skye soap in the bathroom; and a kettle and everything needed to make a cosy cup of tea.

Akses tetamu

The Corry estate, with its woods and fields and coast is available for all guests. Guests are also welcome to use the sitting room, where a continental breakfast is also available from 8 a.m. This has cosy armchairs to curl up in after a day outside. There is also a veranda for those who would like to sit outside and watch the natural world.

Interaksi dengan tetamu

There is always someone at Corry. We are delighted to answer questions We are delighted to answer questions and to share recommendations, but there is a lot of work to do on the estate (and dogs to walk) so we may not be always on hand in the house. We provide a great guide to special local places, and the sitting/breakfast room is full of maps and local travel information.

Depending on which of us is in the house at the time of your stay, in addition to English, we speak Gaelic, Chinese, French, German and a little bit of Italian and Spanish (and if the speaker of the relevant language is away, they can always be found on the phone).

Tea and whisky on arrival, sheepskin hot water bottles for cooler nights, Skye soap, kettles and tea in all rooms. While the Lodge is lovingly prepared to welcome guests, it is also an old house, well-worn with highland life, where the wild outdoors meets the settled world.

We have many visitors from around the world (and travel a lot ourselves) so we keep adaptor plugs available in the house (and hope that guests leave them for others to use).

We have our own guide to the special places on the estate, and across Skye, which is shared with guests. We are happy to make recommendations on restaurants - early booking is advised.

There is a medical centre within walking distance from the Lodge as well as a hospital (with a helipad) for any emergencies (the helipad is often called upon to evacuate distressed mountaineers but is available for all medical emergencies).

We have two dogs: a large Scottish deerhound and a small corgi (all the way from Beijing). While the house can be busy in the day, in the evening and at night, the main house is a haven of peace and quiet.

There are no cooking facilities, but restaurants and cafes are in easy walking distance.

The house is an oasis of calm and we ask all of our guests to be thoughtful about noise in the evenings and early mornings.

We have two dogs already in residence so we are not able to take additional pets.

Corry Lodge is non-smoking. Smokers can smoke outside but we ask everyone to be vigilant with regard to fire hazards. Skye can usually be counted on to deliver some rain but summers are increasingly dry.

We ask our guests not to eat meals in their rooms.

Most of our guests find that the wild landscape and fresh air send them to sleep fairly early. Whatever the evening hour, we ask all of our guests to keep conversations low so as not to disturb others.

Parking is available at the rear of the house; we ask our guests to park with consideration for other vehicles and to keep the level of evening conversations low in areas around the house, again as consideration for other guests.

Corry Lodge is also home to Corrymhor and Kyle, our Scottish deerhound and our older corgi (who comes all the way from Beijing). Both are friendly and love affection but from time to time, when the house is full, may be grateful for a bit of space.

We are not able to accept children under the age of 10. We are able to find additional beds for children above that age (there is an additional charge).

within the check-in window, guests are kindly requested to provide rough arrival time within one day of arrival; there is a late fee for arrivals after check in times; UK 10 after 9 pm increasing by UK 10 for arrivals after 10 pm and UK 20 for every hour after that (we have to be up early to walk dogs so late arrivals are very difficult for us).

The Corry estate is a beautiful area of unspoiled nature. We ask our guests to treat it with love and respect.

We had a great one-night stay overall ! The house is beautiful, if you like old buildings, well located by the loch, and Jeanne-Marie and her staff were very nice and welcoming. Only the breakfast might need some improvements, as no hot meal is offered. Would recommend!

My boyfriend and I loved our stay so much that we stayed an extra day. The house is stunning and filled with history. Breakfast was simple and delicious, the view from the dining room is so lovely you could sit there for hours. The staff (especially Joe) were really charming and helpful. We received excellent recommendations for places to eat and things to do. We loved walking around the grounds and the shore. The house is really close to town but seems like a world away. We highly recommend staying here.

This space is so unique! We were greeted warmly by Joe, who offered great stories and recommendations. We loved the quiet and solitude. Breakfast was nice, and breakfast conversation with other guests even better.

We are on a tour of the UK and so far have stayed in 10 Airbnb's ranging from good to superb.. We had paid £217 for two nights here and as the reviews appeared so praising and interesting, I was looking forward to our stay. I have to say it reminds me of the story of the Emperor with no clothes. This place is not "quaint" or "quirky", It is downright neglected, as are the customers. On arrival you are greeted with delapidated buildings and signage after which you have to navigate a badly potholed driveway one of which had a tyre damaging drop into it. The parking area is muddy,and crowded with cars. Although there is a strict list of house rules and guidelines on booking, nobody answered the phone when we tried to ring three times before we arrived. The weather was bad but there was nowhere pleasant to sit and the tv was broken. The room was cold as the heating wasn't working, one roll of loo paper, one small bar of soap, no toilet brush and no tea or coffee in the room. The dogs can roam the house as stated on the description but unfortunately they are quite smelly and on stepping out on the first day there was a fresh faeces near the front door. Breakfast was minimalistic at best and I couldn't wait to get out of this place. This review is scathing because it has been a very busy season on Skye with plenty of customers paying good money. More should be done to make it a more comfortable experience. On the plus side, Joe was friendly and kind enough to put some washing through his machine for us and the old delapidated bath is quite nice to stretch out in. The star reviews have been modified to reflect my wife's opinion that she didn't think the place was quite as bad as I did.

This is Jo. As is clear from the listing, there are no televisions in the house: you observed a video screen in a private part of the house; it was not broken, simply, as I explained to you when you asked, not connected to television networks. When you asked about the heating you were shown the radiator settings in your room which you were able to adjust. The dining room is equipped with chairs, books, facilities for making tea and coffee (facilities for making tea also in the rooms) and even whisky. You were indeed here during a busy season and notwithstanding the fact that we had many guests in the house, I did indeed do your laundry for you. Your wife's comment was 'What a gorgeous place'.
