Guest Reviews


    • “A Happy Return”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We had stayed in this cottage many years ago and loved the area, in later years we have stayed in Ghillie's cottage and love it's situation and seclusion. Keeper's cottage was a very acceptable alternative with great views, also it's very quiet as there's so little traffic going past.We think it's perfect for two people, but would be a bit of a squeeze for four, especially when the table is in use.My husband especially enjoys the freedom to fish and I relish the quiet and the views. The amenities were all as advertised and were no problem at all. The cottage is nicely placed to allow discovery of the whole island. We would definateley return.”

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.
