    • “Lovely spot, very relaxing with no internet or phone signal. Magic”

    A FlipKey Verified Reviewer, Nr Market Harborough, October 2012


    • “The view from the front window at Greshornish Boathouse was just fantastic. It was so calming and soothing gazing across the Loch and witnessing the vast wildlife come and go as they please. The Boathouse was a wonderful place to stay for our first visit to Skye. Very reasonably priced and plenty of walks within a half hour drive. Lovely to take our golden retriever with us to this beautiful place. I would strongly recommend this place to anyone.”

    Mr Roberts, Wrexham, November 2015

    • “Brilliant boathouse accommodation in a beautiful setting. Loved the picture window looking out onto the loch.”

    Mrs Peacock, Stockton-on-Tees, August 2015

    • “The location was perfect, the window looking out over the loch was stunning and kept our dog enraptured. It was peaceful and private yet not completely remote. Loved being at the end of the road, a good place to get away from the hassle of modern living with no phones or internet.”

    Mrs Joyce, Elgin, April 2015

    • “Hours were spent looking out at the wonderful sea views from the main window - with the cosy crackling of the wood burner in the background. Grateful for the abundance of information about local walks and recommendations for things to do in the local area. Very comfortable bed too!”

    Miss Shackleton, Edinburgh, March 2015

    • “We loved Greshornish Boathouse - it was exactly the kind of place we love to stay in; cosy and a little bit different. The views from the living room were amazing and it was wonderfully quiet and relaxing. We would love to go back for a longer stay some time. It was great to be able to bring our dogs too.”

    Dr Sharpe, Annan, October 2014

    • “The Cottage was cosy and comfortable and well situated with some lovely walks right on the doorstep for the dog and a great base for touring the North West of Skye. I would definitely recommend for a quiet and relaxing holiday”

    Mrs Mccomisky, Coatbridge, March 2014

    • “Idyllic location and well-equipped, pretty cottage which was a good base from which to visit all other areas of the island. There was a good selection of books and DVDs. The multi-fuel stove made it very snug and the supply of fuel was generous.”

    Mrs Martin, Newton Abbot, February 2014

About the location


Portree 22 miles.

The village of Dunvegan is set in the north west of Skye and contains a mixture of traditional stone and modern houses, along with a selection of shops and hotels. About a mile from the village is Dunvegan Castle, home to the Clan MacLeod, who have continuously occupied the castle since the 13th century. Only four miles away is the famous Three Chimneys Restaurant, a must for all foodies, and just a 10 minute walk away is the very popular Old School Restaurant, also worth a visit. Also in the area are the Cullin Mountains with their fantastic rock forms and pinnacles, which many climbers would put at the top of their list. Other attractions on the Isle are plentiful - visit the Talisker Distillery or Portree, the island’s only town, set around its natural harbour, which boasts an excellent range of shops, hotels and restaurants, and also offers Sea Eagle trips from the pier, which are extremely popular.
