  • “We had a really great week at this cottage.”

    It is well located and perfect as a get away retreat to rest and relax. Overall, the cottage was fine, basic but well equipped. My only comments are that the house smelled a bit musty on arrival and could have been cosier if the heating had been on at arrival. The floor in the bathroom also needed fixing, but this didn’t really affect our holiday. The wifi did work, but had intermittent blackouts, mainly after 9pm.

    It is well located and perfect as a get away retreat to rest and relax. Overall, the cottage was fine, basic but well equipped. My only comments are that the house smelled a bit musty on arrival and could have been cosier if the heating had been on at arrival. The floor in the bathroom also needed fixing, but this didn’t really affect our holiday. The wifi did work, but had intermittent blackouts, mainly after 9pm. Also, the driveway up to the house needs attention as it could be damaging to the tires of the car as one turns up the driveway, but these are all minor and easy fixes. Big pluses were the peace and quiet and the daily visits from the cows and sheep! The cottage made a great base for daily trips out and we enjoyed nightly supers at the Edinbane Inn close by. Overall, we had a great time at the cottage and on Skye and would love to return in the future.

The property

Dunvegan 7 miles. This traditional detached cottage on the Isle of Skye occupies a wonderful secluded position on the beautiful Greshornish Peninsula.

Situated up a track road, on a 2500-acre working livestock farm, just minutes' walk from the sea shore, this charming cottage boasts stunning views over Loch Greshornish.

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.

Explore Skye's many visitor attractions - sample malts, visit castles, observe the varied wildlife, or venture out on one of the excellent walks that can be found on the doorstep of this ideally situated Skye cottage.

When the day is done, return to the welcoming comfort and warmth, and absorb the beauty and mystery surrounding this romantic old crofter's cottage.

An evening meal at the nearby Greshornish House Hotel is a recommended treat and Dunvegan, offering all the facilities of a Highland village, is just a 7 mile drive away.

For a memorable Skye cottage holiday experience, The Ghillie's Cottage is hard to beat.

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.

This property only accepts a Saturday start date for holidays.
