This Is The House To Get Away From It All .
Second time staying at this house. We love it, so spacious clean and so comfortable. Lots of light Everything you need to stay. The house is in a beautiful location, peaceful and tranquil and the views of Skye spectacular. In easy walking distance to visit Glenelg Inn, which serves delicious food .drink and always has a fire on. Great location to travel and see the sights. Recommend getting the Glenelg ferry an absolute must , beats the long road around every time. We will be back , to stay at this house again for sure. Love it.

Lovely location
On our arrival the house was clean and tidy. The house is in a beautiful location at the loch side and a short walk to the Glenelg inn.The rear of the property looks out over fields that are frequented by red deer on an evening. When we visited last year we were lucky enough to spot a pine Martin too. If you have a keen eye you could see lots of wildlife in the area such as otters, sea eagles and seals round by the ferry. Glenelg is a beautiful and peaceful , we will be back.

5/5 Excellent

We really loved our two week stay at Solas. The house is perfectly located in Glenelg, within walking distance to the Inn and village shop. Gamboling lambs and noisy peacocks added to the ambiance. For excitement and spectacular views, take the friendly Glenelg Ferry, and drive to Broadford to purchase groceries. The Glenelg Inn provided us with dinner every night. We were not bored at all as the food was delicious and staff were warmly welcoming. The house itself is spacious and well stocked, even with games and DVDs to while away a rainy day, although the ever changing views from the front windows kept us diverted. Having amenities such as dishwasher, washer and dryer was much appreciated over the two weeks. Bedrooms were warm and cozy although the mattresses became a little hard on our aging bodies after two weeks. Bathrooms were modern and towel warmers much appreciated. Instructions on how to use appliances was very helpful, but there needs to be instructions for the AGA stove for non UK residents. Additionally we could have used kindling for the wood stove and a knife sharpener in the kitchen. All in all we loved Glenelg and our home at Solas and look forward to returning next year.
