  • "Barry and Debbie were the perfect hosts."

    Advising us on where to go, what to see and where to shop. And a most welcome find in the fridge of milk and wine and home baked bread for us. Very friendly and so helpful without being intrusive in any way. Everything you could possibly need in the cabin too. It was a lovely find.

    Having such wonderful hosts and beautiful accommodation turned a tough week to get overcome into a delightful and memorable week away. The cabin is spacious, beautifully decorated and has every utensil and home essential you can think of and more. We will definitely be recommending and looking to stay again in the future - thanks for an amazing week away!

  • "The photos advertising the cabin are somewhat false."

    I did not expect to see the owners property with scaffolding and scrap piles of wood on the floor as part of my view. I certainly don’t expect to see the owners in a hot tub with friends as part of my evening view. More thought could have been done to the cabin in consideration to hot weather during months when the midge are active. Midge screens on the two smaller windows to allow occupants to open and receive fresh air. A suitable fan was supplied during the last two nights of our stay but should be left in the cabin to give an option to the client. The oven and hob were really good and made cooking easy but the heat inside the cabin made it a task which we refused in the end. There is no need for a dish washer as it is designed for 2 persons only and I’m sure better use of cupboard space would have been useful, particularly considering the lack of counter top. The cabin is really well presented on arrival, very clean and the shower is great. A shame it was more let downs than positives. We found ourselves delaying our return to the cabin everyday. We will NOT book the cabin again.

    Thank you for your review Bryan however we feel it unjustified and untrue. To take your points in order: The property listing details that there are two rental properties at the same location and that we live on site. The photos are unedited images of the exact property inside and out and clearly show our home in it's location through The Cabin windows. We do have two small single story scaffold towers up at the moment as we are in the middle of replacing our old leaking roof. We apologise if this affected your stay in any way. We are sorry that you found it offensive seeing us use our hot tub 30 metres away, we have difficulty understanding why that would be but please understand it was not our intent to upset anyone. It is true we had not adequately considered the eventuality of getting unprecedented temperatures here on Skye, the minute you asked for a fan we provided two small units and ordered a new large floor standing fan which arrived and was provided to you the next day. Had you asked for this earlier it would have been provided earlier so your implication that we waited until the last two days of your stay to assist is misleading. The large fan will remain in the property in case we ever experience such high temperatures in the future. Midge screens are a good idea although with the entire window opening outwards it makes permanent fixed screens unfeasible, but we will investigate and source internal screens for those two windows. Thank you for the comment. We have never had a negative comment regarding the provision of a dishwasher, we know that many of our guests have used it in the past and we think it is better to provide facilities that may not be used than not but thank you for the feedback.

  • "We loved our stay thank you, the cabin had everything we needed and the Isle of ..."

    We loved our stay thank you, the cabin had everything we needed and the Isle of Skye has a lot to offer, the only thing that let it down was the postcode not being correct and took us to another property which then took nearly an hour to find the cabin even thought it was just down the road

    Thank you for your feedback Paul. The supplied postcode is correct but because of our rural location it occupies a large area and the centre of the postcode where Satnav tends to take you is a few hundred metres away. This is why the arrival instructions have detailed directions to get you to the property including GPS co-ordinates and what three words to our exact location. We are now sending arriving guests a google map location on the day of arrival to assist with finding us. Property Owner

    Although different owners we have no hesitation in saying our holiday was ideal and the area and scenery is difficult to beat. Debbie and Barry being the perfect hosts always ready to help, their knowledge handy when thinking up trips. The home made bread was really good and the milk, wine, tea coffee etc ideal.

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.
