  • “Lovely secluded location close to Uig ferry terminal which suited us.”

    Facilities were good. Cottage was cozy and comfortable. Decor was very dated and could do with some modernisation and beds were a little uncomfortable. It was warm and with nice views worked well for us for a short break. Appreciated the welcome pack especially for the dog! Ended help with the TV and got a very quick response which was appreciated.

Resting on the North of the Trotternish Peninsula is the small village of Duntulm, on the majestic land of the Isle of Skye, Scotland. Here you will find the remains of Duntulm Castle which was thought to have been a dun, or broch. This castle is nestled on a sheer cliff and can be reached by a well-made coastal path, promising breath-taking coastal views which looks across The Minch to the Isle of Lewis. For local amenities a short car journey will bring you to the coastal village of Staffin, where you will find a choice of restaurants, two shops, a part time opening Post Office, as well as a Staffin Slipway for sailing enthusiasts and the only sandy beach in the north of Skye. Further afield attractions upon this part of the isle include the 674-meter-tall landslip and the Quiraing, both offering superb walks amidst breath-taking scenery.
