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, and are said to have had dealings with the "wee folk" at the Fairy Bridge. 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 islandís 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 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

The uniqueness of the accommodation was fantastic and the little beach next the property was perfect for the dogs. For a cottage that accepts dogs the cleanliness was excellent.

Mrs Duncan, Perth, October 2013

Wonderful secluded location. Ideal for getting away from not all. The Greshornish Boathouse was a gem and an ideal cosy base camp after long days exploring the locality.
