Have been coming to Skye for many years and stayed in most of the hotels, however this time we thought we would rent a house as we were coming for a week to spent Christmas. After staying here I could never go anywhere else, the house is beautiful and pure perfection. The views are totally breathtaking and some of the best I have seen, very peaceful. There was a flurry of snow and it felt so magical, made our Christmas very special.The house felt more like a home rather than a holiday rental and had everything you need and finished to a very high standard. We cannot wait to go back and this time I will book 2 weeks, we did not want to leave.

We had a perfect stay at Salt Winds! The house is situated on top of the hill, with epic views over Loch Bay. These views can be enjoyed in the house as well cause of all the big windows. The way it is located it gives good privacy, while you can enjoy the sunsets or changes in weather coming from the Atlantic Ocean. Salt Winds has everything you need and more than that! Relax at the fireplace, or take a nice bath in the ensuite bathroom. As said we very much enjoyed it, our 6 year old daughter as well! Highly recommended!!

From the day we arrived we knew this was the best accommodation we could have booked, the house is perfect in every way and the views are breathtaking. The master bedroom with the large window looking out to the Loch is amazing. The decor in the house is really quirky which we loved, nice personal touches
The Stein inn is a 5 minute walk and we loved it, we had lunch and it was really nice and wholesome. Kirsty the bar lady and Frank the chef were so welcoming and great to chat to, they made us feel so at home :)
We had our furry baby Brinley with us and he also loved the house and the Stein Inn and was made very welcome.
We fell in love with Coral Beach and the Fairy pools, well worth a visit but you may have to carry your dogs over some stone paths through water at the fairy pools.
The Uig Hotel is dog friendly and lovely welcoming owners, the burger was amazing and Brinley was given some treats :)
We were blown away by Skye, Waternish and the Salt winds accommodation, we will definitely be back.

It was even better than expected, small details that made us love the house and the owner who definitely had thought in everything to make our stay 10 out of 10! We would definitely love to be back as soon as we can! 120% recommend to others, you will not forget SaltWinds if you go! Thousand thanks x

If you're heading to the Isle of Skye for a long weekend or more, and like places that are low-key, off the beaten track, and inviting in all aspects, I'd hands down recommend staying here.
The owners of this majestical piece of architecture have managed to compose an adorning timbre that they can call their own; with a surplus being, that it's open to guests.
The house proposes to the modern drift following a trend that coincides with alluring comfort and sustainable materials that descend into their own ethos, leading to prevailing design. The ceiling to floor windows focus on accentuating light, allowing you to see a view that has its own whimsical personality. You'll see a sunset like you've never seen before.
The leather L shaped sofa is ideal for snuggling up on, with a glass of red wine and a film to watch from their vast collection, that is pleasing to all tastes. There's delicacy and candour in every form throughout the house that is encompassed by the hospitable aurora that you'll feel here. A room should never allow the eye to settle in one place, and at this house the cosy animal skins, rustic furniture, magnificent telescopes, cork ceiling lampshades don't let it but they all eloquently combine the compelling design licks that we all feel happy to be around. The lighting will make you weak at the knees from the tantalising caress of the dimmer switch option.
In addition and in regards to that rendering ache that we all have for an unruffled sleep, the beds have linen sheets and a mattress topper from none other than Soak & Sleep, which will give you that undeniable reminder that you'll have a good night's sleep. Each bedroom, has a view of the water and an impeccable yet simple en suite.
Staying here will give you more of a grasp as to why people that live in the Isle of Skye say; 'We just fell in love with this place, and never left.'
