    “The cottage is a delight from top ...”
    The cottage is a delight from top to bottom, situated perfectly, with only a short drive to the local shops, beach trails and the Cuillins. On nice cold November evenings there is nothing nicer to do than get in the hot tub and sit in front of a coal fire (not that the fire was needed with the underfloor heating). At night in the hot tub you can turn off all the lights and stare up to a sky unencumbered by light pollution. The kitchen was superb, and had everything required for a full Christmas ...
    The cottage is a delight from top to bottom, situated perfectly, with only a short drive to the local shops, beach trails and the Cuillins.

At night in the hot tub you can turn off all the lights and stare up to a sky unencumbered by light pollution. The kitchen was superb, and had everything required for a full Christmas dinner to be cooked. The cottage's internet was very fast and useful as none of our phones had any reception on Skye at all (3 and vodafone). Local restaurants were few and far between, but the cottage is 4 miles away from the 'Three Chimneys' gourmet restaurant, which was exquisite. I could not recommend this cottage any higher and I fully intend to come back again in the future when I plan to complete the Cuillin ridge.

The property

This detached cottage is comfortable walking distance from the centre of the village of Dunvegan on the Isle of Skye and boasts a wonderfully relaxing hot tub.

This beautiful cottage has lots of space and is ideal for a large family group or group of friends who will appreciate the unspoilt beauty of the area.

Privately situated, with far-reaching views across the surrounding countryside and over to the famous MacLeod’s Tables, this cottage is in a most desirable location!

The heart of the home is the large open plan living area with a well-equipped kitchen, a generous dining space and a large sitting area with a corner settee to sink into.

Here is where you can gather at the end of a busy day for pre-dinner drinks, while someone prepares the meal.

After dinner, guests can retire to the welcoming sitting room with its woodburner and recliner chairs.

There are four comfortable bedrooms, one at ground floor level, and there is a bathroom and a separate shower room.

On the upper floor a further quiet seating area is provided, ideal for reading.

From the sitting room, French doors lead out to a private, south-facing decked area complete with hot tub, from where the mountain views can be really appreciated, whilst perhaps sipping a glass of champagne or enjoying a barbecue in the afternoon sun whilst taking in the spectacular sunsets!

The village of Dunvegan has excellent local amenities and is ideal for walkers and cyclist who want to leave their car at home whilst exploring the area.

By car, Skye is easy to explore as the island is relatively small and most places are easily accessible.

As you would expect, the wildlife is magnificent and eagles really do soar overhead!

The beauty of the island will not fail to impress and the popularity of Skye is easy to understand.

At the end of a wonderful day, guests will enjoy a soak in their very own hot tub and the utter comfort of their cottage.

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.
