Please find below a selection of self catering holiday cottages to rent in Dunvegan on the Isle of Skye.
Dunvegan offers a heady mix of stunning scenery, historic sites and magical myths - not to mention a lovely selection of Dunvegan holiday cottages.
Once a thriving port, today's Dunvegan is a charming village in an enchanting setting, just a stone's throw from Loch Dunvegan and framed by the imposing peaks of the Cuillin. Although small, it's the main centre of northwest Skye and caters for all your everyday needs - a Tourist Information Office, petrol station, Post Office, selection of village shops and a popular restaurant.
It is also home to the island's most celebrated landmark, Dunvegan Castle. Perched on a rock with sweeping loch views, this impressive stronghold has been the Macleod Clan's family residence since it was built in the 1200s. Numerous treasures on display include the 'Fairy Flag', a sacred piece of silk with mysterious powers. Do explore the delightful castle gardens, or perhaps take the children on a seal-spotting trip from the loch-side jetty. It's also worth the short drive on to Claigan, from where you can discover the most incredible coral-sand beaches.
Back in the village is the Giant Angus MacAskill Museum, devoted to Scotland's tallest ever man, while things to see and do nearby include Iron Age Forts, a piping museum, mackerel fishing - even spotting basking sharks off Neist Point. And if you're a keen mountaineer, the neighbouring Cuillin range rank high amongst Britain's most challenging.
So, whether it's the fascinating heritage or the mesmerising beauty that brings you to this remote corner of Skye, a Dunvegan cottage will make the perfect retreat.
