We are Lorraine and Steve Nolan. We live here in Clouds with our son Archie and a growing menagerie of animals. We grow our own vegetables with varying degrees of success, we generate some of our own electricity through solar panels on our land and our hot water is provided by an air source heat pump. In 2018, we'd like to reduce the amount of plastic we use and offer to our guests, so we'll be providing filtered water in glass containers, rather than in plastic bottles. We recently lost our beloved 'Louis', our 14 year old border terrier, but we still feel he's here with us, raising our spirits and being the lovable pesky pest he always was. We do currently have our hens ('Danny', 'BeanoDandy', 'Poppy' and 'Mabel') and hope next year to get a few more sheep and some goats. (Our previous hairy sheep pets 'Freckles' and, inevitably, 'Sheepy-Sheep' have been released into the hills for their retirement - we still see them now and again).
We love living on The Isle of Skye - It's impossible to go half an hour in any direction without being enthralled by the nature that surrounds us. It can get a little wild here at times but that all adds to the adventure that is Life on Skye. We look forward to meeting you, hope you love spending time on Skye too and that you enjoy your stay at Clouds.
Finally, you won't find us on popular travel booking websites such as Airbnb, Trivago or Booking.com - All of these companies and others, are perfectly fine, and we appreciate that they are great for travellers - but we don't really believe in rating our guests with a score, and we guarantee we will do our absolute best to make you feel comfortable and welcome at Clouds, so if you have any issues at all, or would like any advice, no matter how small your enquiry, or at any time of the day - please just ask and we'll try to help.
And if you'd like to read what our Guests really think of us, please have a look at our 'Guest comments' page or our new 2018 Facebook page ...
Lorraine, Steve, Archie and Louis. Always Louis. Love you, pest.
