The Property

A charming detached whitewashed stone cottage set on a pretty hillside, in the village of Dunvegan on the magical Isle of Skye. This Skye cottage is privately situated, accessed via its own driveway, and has fabulous views overlooking Loch Dunvegan and across to the famous MacLeod's Tables, curious-looking hills named as such due to their flat tops. This Skye cottage is perfect for a family or group of friends who want to explore the beautiful Isle of Skye and soak up the fabulous scenery. There are three bright bedrooms in this Dunvegan holiday home, with the ground floor bedroom boasting an en-suite shower room, making this a great cottage for the less mobile in the group. The sitting room in this Skye cottage has a welcoming open fire, perfect for cosy nights in, and leads through to a spacious and very well-equipped kitchen with dining area, so when the chef is preparing lunch, company is never too far away. Most of the rooms in this Dunvegan cottage boast loch views, so no matter the weather, you can enjoy the fabulous location. To the front of this Skye cottage there is a neat paved patio area, from which you can simply gaze out across the Loch and enjoy the peace, tranquillity and views, or perhaps enjoy a morning coffee or pre-dinner drink in the early evening sunshine. This Dunvegan cottage is within easy walking distance of the very good facilities that the popular village has to offer, and there are good local hotels and restaurants, as well as live music in the pubs during the summer months. Just a short drive away is the world-famous Dunvegan Castle, offering interesting tours and lovely walks through its pretty gardens. Boat trips out to the seal colonies are well worth taking, and you can watch the lazy seals languish in comfort at close quarters. Further on from the castle are the amazing coral beaches at Claigan - one of the most beautiful coastal locations on Skye. From Dunvegan you can tour the whole of the island, and with so much to see and do, your welcoming Skye cottage will ensure a perfect holiday.

About the location

DUNVEGAN

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. 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.
