    Due to unexpected work meeting I had to leave early. I only spent one night there, but there were a number of issues. The attached wall heaters in the living room and bedroom did not work. Even though the outside temperature was about 2.5 degrees the cottage was very cold. There was dimplex free standing heater in the bedroom and a fan heater in the living room even with these it hardly warmed the cottage up. There was no remote for the TV and I could not get the Freesat box to work. I couldn't find any instructions for anything. The main bed was very uncomfortable the mattress was in need of replacement. The cottage was very clean. If I hadn't been called back for work I would probably have gone to a hotel/B&B.

A holiday in this Skye cottage offers fishing for wild trout and salmon in the nearby Red Burn river, plus lovely wooden boats are also available for guests' use on the owner's private hill loch stocked with brown trout.

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. 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: Until the 29th April 2017 this property accepts two well-behaved pets. From the 29th April 2017 this property will be pet-free.
