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, and are said to have had dealings with the "wee folk" at the Fairy Bridge. Also in the area are the Cuillin 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.

The cottage was warm and cosy even when the weather was really cold and wet.

The Keeper's Cottage is in a superb location with beautiful views across the loch. The cottage was ideal and very cosy. Boating on the loch was an added bonus!

An excellent holiday cottage, very well equipped and decorated to a very high standard. I couldn't praise this property too highly and felt very comfortable and at home. Absolutely terrific place and all praise to the owners.
