    It is definitely not a 4 star rating but is comfortable. Lacking was an outside sitting area and an enclosed area for dogs. There are great walks starting at the front door. Speed is a problem for some of the road users so keep an eye on kids and dogs. Great walk down to the beach and mussels and cockles galore. Found our very own 'fairy pool' and waterfall too. The oldest bakery in Skye down in Dunvegan sells the most gorgeous chocolate cake. Would we be back? It would be a definite yes!

Set on a 2500-acre working livestock farm, this Skye cottage has been restored to provide well-equipped and comfortable accommodation for all guests.

Outdoor and fishing enthusiasts at this Skye cottage will enjoy taking advantage of the traditional wooden boats available for use on nearby Loch na Stapaig (Apr to Sep) - the owner's private loch which is well stocked with brown trout.

Guests are also welcome to try their hand at fly fishing for wild salmon in the Red Burn river.

The area surrounding this Skye cottage has much to offer in the way of wildlife; take a look out of the window to catch a glimpse of the renowned sea eagle or take a two minute stroll to the seashore to spot the elusive sea otter.

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.
