What our guests say!

We'd like to think that many of the visitors to the Hirsel come as guests and leave as friends, and so who better than they to offer their personal testimonials for their stay with us.  We have shown below some of their own words for which we are very grateful!


A beautiful quiet place to stay, and amazing scenery from the cottage and surroundings. Nice friendly people everywhere and one week was too short for what we wanted to see. Thanks  Rob and Eileen for everything you told us about Skye. We felt very much at home at the Hirsel. Keep on going this way.

Thank you once again Eileen, Rob and Russell and wee pals for a lovely week with you up on Skye. Ord has become a special place for us and you always make us so welcome.

Carol and Ian


It never ties and we shall be back, yet again, next year to soak up this beautiful place once more.

Chris and Dennis


Another fantastic week, thanks for sharing heaven on earth.

Peter and Irene


We have had had a great week at the Hirsel (a real home from home). The weather has been wonderful, made for some amazing sunsets.  Bertie has enjoyed swimming with Dali and Darcy down at the jetty. We have enjoyed seeing otters, red deer, dolphins, seals and much more. A  big thanks to Rob and Eileen for their hospitality, very welcoming and local knowledge, it has made our stay most enjoyable.  Will definitely be back again.

Pippa and Rich


Thank you for a wonderful week as always. So lovely to spend time here in Ord-a relaxing and peaceful place. Next time the new addition will be able to join in and cause chaos in the Hirsel.

After 7 years and 9 (so far) visits there are new attractions and things to see (Skye Farm Shop provides the best home baking and bacon butties ever!), further places to explore ( first trip to Canna) and even more to revisit and enjoy again, but the comfort of the Hirsel remains the ideal place to stay. Thanks yet again Rob and Eileen, for your continued hospitality and sharing Skye with us. Now looking forward to October.

As a retired self-catering provider I was very impressed with the standard of the Hirsel very comfortable and excellent equipment, nothing lacking. As an often returner liked the position, convenience, the sunsets, a lovely week thank you.
