  • “Perfectly located comfortable cottage”
    This was the first time we, as a family, had booked a cottage to stay in for our holidays and we were delighted when we arrived to see it had exceeded our expectations. We were a couple with our two 'children' of 16 and 19 in tow. They had the rooms on the first floor and we took the room on the ground floor with the en-suite. The en-suite was a bit tight and I much preferred using the bathroom upstairs but it was a handy back-up when the others were hogging the bathroom. ...
    This was the first time we, as a family, had booked a cottage to stay in for our holidays and we were delighted when we arrived to see it had exceeded our expectations. We were a couple with our two 'children' of 16 and 19 in tow. They had the rooms on the first floor and we took the room on the ground floor with the en-suite. The en-suite was a bit tight and I much preferred using the bathroom upstairs but it was a handy back-up when the others were hogging the bathroom. The owners have really thought of everything, with huge soft towels in each room, bread, cake and milk in the kitchen and everything you'd need to have a comfortable stay. Dunvegan itself is ideal for Skye, sitting close enough to Portree that the 22 mile drive isn't a trial. Whilst you will find that the shops in Duinvegan can keep you stocked, I would still make a trip to Portree to the large Co-op on the outskirts of town at the start of your break. We found our-self about an hour from the likes of Quirang and the Fairie Pools and only a couple of minutes drive from Dunvegan Castle with it's seal spotting tours I'd highly recommend the cottage itself. We felt at home straight away and could easily have moved in permanently...my wife had suggested it :)

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, 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 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.
