10 Torrin is a welcoming self-catering cottage set in amongst the crofts just 7 miles from Broadford on the Isle of Skye. There is a double and a twin bedroom in the main house along with a sofa bed which can used. The Old Barn which has another twin bedroom with en-suite which can be added to your holiday booking. It is excellently located for relaxing walks along country lanes to the shores of Loch Slapin, or explore the rest of Skye, Raasay, Lochalsh and Glenelg.

A lovely house in a great location for a cosy October holiday

Torrin is a lovely place for a holiday and the house was comfortable and cosy for our week of unfortunately not so great weather. We all enjoyed the peace and quiet of the place but still felt like we were staying within a local community, with neighbours quite nearby, people working and even the great Blue Shed café to visit. The location is perfect for setting off in all directions to explore the area and the rest of Skye, and is so near the sea and mountains - it's beautiful. As four single adults and two children, we also used the barn as an extra bedroom and the sofa bed. Everyone was comfortable and cosy, although it was a bit tricky coming in with wet coats and boots etc. as there is no hall or much space to leave shoes, boots or even hang up wet coats, but the open plan living area works well apart from that.
The TV does not work at all - only for DVDs.(but that can be a good thing)
Our main problem was the lack of forks. As a party of 6 staying in a house for 6, we needed cutlery for 6.
There were only 4 forks, 2 wine glasses and 4 mugs, but....having asked the housekeeper for more, she did bring more of all these things on day 2 - thankyou. So that should all be sorted now - pity we had to eat our dinner with a spoon for the first 2 evenings. A few other necessities would have been good, like a ladle and a normal sized frying pan......but any previous review comments about keys etc. were not a concern at all. This is Skye after all - a very safe place.
We enjoyed the family history touches of the portrait and MacQueen tarten, especially as we had 3 McQueens in our party and the books, maps and info left on the shelf were very interesting.
We had a great holiday and enjoyed 10 Torrin very much.

We'd read previous reviews painting a rather dubious picture of the cottage, but it was fine.
It's cosy, comfy and fitted in with what we needed.
The location is good, not far outside Broadford with it's shop, garage, places to eat, a 15 minute walk to a lovely beach with seals
jus off shore.
The cottage was clean, the sofas were comfy, lovely big table & chairs. The kitchen could do with a big pasta pan, otherwise
pretty good equipment wise.
The wall wasn't wet during our stay, I know a previous reviewer mentioned this.
It's a holiday house, things won't be the same as your own home. We found nothing to moan about.
Skye is just beautiful, people were friendly, the ferry from Aramdale to Mallaig is worth taking.
We would happily stay at the cottage again.




Nice cottage, needs updating.

Beautiful located cottage. Views on the red cuillin hills.
Unfortunately the cottage needs some improvement. There wasn't enough cutlery (forks) for 6 persons.
Vacuum cleaner didn't work. The sofa's were old (passed through)
Cleaning could be better (a lot of dust under the sofas)
Although the restrictions of the cottage, we had a great week on Skye. We enjoy the island very much.




Some things to improve... But ok

Beautiful little house. It has everything you need for your holiday. Cleanliness could be better... The stonen wall in one of the rooms was completely wet! Impossible to sleep in this room... No satellite signal for television unfortunately. It could be much better if some of those points could be fixed...
