Although Bruchlas has been available only for a short time, the feedback has been fantastic. Thank you everyone for your comments, and to those who've yet to visit, please take a look.

April '14 We came expecting to have a nice vacation and we found heaven!

We’ve had a fantastic week sharing this lovely house with our good friends, grandparents and friends from Sidney. We’ve seen 8 new lambs come into the world across the fence, seals at Plockton, the fairy pools and wonderful pub lunches. This is the second time to Bruchlas and we’re just as tempted as we were the first time to find our own plot of land on Skye and build a cottage of our own.

April '14 This is out first visit to Scotland and what a week… and the house is wonderful

April '14 What an amazing week we’ve had. From the moment we arrived and sat in the living room soaking up the view, we’ve loved living in Bruchlas..and it does feel like home.

March '14 What an amazing sunny week – fabulous walks, views and time relaxing in the house….wonderful to be reminded why we love it so much up on Sleat.

March '14 Thanks again Clare – we had a wonderful 2 weeks. Weather was great, needless to say the house is its usual, comfortable, warm and so relaxing. We will be back again.

Feb '14 Great to be here again – weather wet and wild but mild.

Feb '14The wet, wild and windy weather continued this week but still had a great time watching the weather and lots of wee walks. Will definitely be back!

Jan '14 What a wonderful start to the New Year! A fabulous visit to Skye and a great home to stay in – we have loved it and will definitely be back to Bruchlas!

Dec '13 Absolutely loved it, thank you so much Clare. You really cant go wrong with Skye, every day whatever the weather its just beautiful.

Nov '13 The cottage has been superb, highlighted by all the little personal touches and extras, I would recommend it highly.

Nov '13Another fabulous week – Sunday sunny and hot enough for short sleeves. (6th visit)

Nov '13The house is a true home from home with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay (and more)! A particular favourite was the ‘hot pod’ which made for many a cosy night.

Oct '13 We will be leaving in the morning with very heavy hearts… Highlights to name a few..Old Man of Storr, Calum’s seal trips, Talisker tasting.…a late night dash to glimpse the Northern Lights. Memories of a lifetime.

Sep '13 Beautiful house and view…Lovely fire, dvd collection, kids toys, books, open plan.

Sep '13Coming back next year, cant keep away.

Sep '13An amazing house, lived up to our expectations and then some! Early morning views of the sunrise were stunning and we got plenty of great photos from Bruchlas as the light changed throughout the day. …we will definitely be back.

Aug '13Third time, third delight. It all started though with three days of spectacular wall of vertical rain. When the sky turned blue, the delight was so much greater. The contrast unbelievable. All this and your charming home…

July '13Another lovely week at Bruchlas – it feels like coming home now!

July '13You placed a beautiful thing in a beautiful place…hope to return next year.

March '13Fabulous as always back soon! (5th stay)

March '13Back to Bruchlas for the fourth time and it is as wonderful as ever.

Feb '13 We’ve absolutely loved our week here. All kinds of weather ad enjoyed being in this most fabulous house as well as getting out and about.

Feb '13.. could stay here sitting by the window forever.

Feb '13We all loved it – accommodation hard to beat and we’ve stayed on a few in Skye. There was a ‘fight’ over which double bedroom to have as they were both great. Downstairs waking up to sunrise over the mountains from your pillow and at night (upstairs) watching the stars through the velux windows.

Feb '13I saw the book collection and wanted to stay for a month..

Jan '13 A week to hunker down in front of the stove. ..
