Sgarbh Lodge is a traditional croft house, beautifully renovated and located in the small hamlet of Lower Milovaig. The property enjoys panoramic views over Loch Pooltiel and towards the Western Isles. The name pronounced 'Skarrav Lodge' is the gaelic word for cormorant.

The lodge offers spacious accommodation ideal for a small family. The ground floor has a well appointed sitting room with a large corner sofa and other seating, ideally placed to enjoy the views down to the loch. This room also has a large dining table and seating for four. The first of the bedrooms is located on this level, a twin with an en-suite shower room which again enjoys the views to the loch. To the rear of the property, the large kitchen is located. This is extremely well equipped including a range cooker with double ovens.

On the upper level, two further bedrooms are located, the master with a king size bed and en-suite shower room and a double with an en-suite shower room. All the bedrooms are beautifully furnished and have TV's and hairdryers, and quality bed linen and towels are used throughout. Sgarbh Lodge is situated in several acres of open croft land. Beside the house there is a walled garden with a table and benches, an ideal place to sit and soak up the view and the sun on a summers' day. 

The nearest town to the property is Dunvegan, which offers a few restaurants, petrol station, shop and local bakery. On the outskirts Dunvegan Castle, home of the Clan MacLeod for the last 800 years, is well worth a visit, as is the pretty coral beaches. Further afield Portree is the main population area on the island, the pretty harbour is particularly striking with its coloured buildings and from here boat trips can be taken. The town has lots of interesting shops selling the best of the local manufacturers and many places for a spot of lunch or refreshment.  

Within a five minute drive of the property, is a well stocked shop and post office and Cafe Lephin. For food lovers the famous Three Chimneys Restaurant is within a ten minute drive.  The restaurant is owned by Shirley Spear and has won a host of awards and accolades over the last few years and offers the chance to sample the finest of the local ingredients including seafood.

Local walks include Neist Point and its Lighthouse. The point being the most north westerly on Skye, the sunsets here are just stunning. Basking sharks, dolphins, seals and whales are often spotted here along with a large variety of birds, including the majestic Golden eagle.

The cottage itself was beautiful and spotless, had a wonderful view, and was fun with the sheep and other local animals all around to watch. It was nice and quiet, the kitchen was huge, the bedrooms were spacious, and multiple en suites was very convenient. Not having instructions for the clothes washer was a bit tricky since we never used that model of machine before, but with some google searching information was found. Having another, non-glass, cutting board would have been nice, and a way to sharpen the kitchen knives which were rather dull. These were our only complaints the entire week, however. All in all the experience was fantastic, relaxing, and very fun! We've already been recommending this cottage to friends and family.

Sgarbh Lodge is located on a beautiful hillside overlooking the waterfront. With lush green landscapes surrounding it and the infinite views all around it is the perfect place to unwind. The house itself is pretty spacious and clean, with 3 large rooms, a cosy living room and a really spacious kitchen area. It has all the white goods you would require and the owner is very welcoming.

Sgarbh Lodge was a wonderful place to stay, the location was stunning and very peaceful. The amenities in the house were excellent and the beds very comfortable. It is a short 5 minute walk down to the small harbour to watch the sunset, where we saw seals playing and the Isles of Harris & Lewis in the distance. At breakfast we saw a pod of dolphins fishing, it is a truly magical place. The shops are quite some distance from the property so I would advise to bring plenty of supplies with you. There is a large freezer so you can bring meat and bread etc and pop it in the freezer for later on in the week. We also took our own BBQ as the weather was really good and we used it a lot.
