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. Only four miles away is the famous Three Chimneys Restaurant, a must for all foodies, and just a 10 minute walk away is the very popular Old School Restaurant, also worth a visit. 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 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.

Note: This property is not suitable for children under the age of 8.

    We are sad to say we're now at home writing this review. The Red Chimneys Cottage is a beautifully thought out cottage, with everything you could possibly need. The underfloor heating is fabulous downstairs and the wood burner upstairs keeps the whole cottage cosy. The kitchen is so well equipped, it's like home from home. The views are spectacular from the cottage. We didn't see much wildlife around the cottage, as it was mostly dark when we were there. But the island has so much to offer when exploring. We wrote our sightings in the thoughtful wildlife book that is there for guests to write what they've seen. The cottage is remote, so be prepared to drive to places if you're out on an adventure. The roads are narrow and a bit tricky at times. Ian loved them with his land rover to play with on them. Thank you to Fiona and Mark for providing such a great bolt hole.
