  • "Really nice stay."

    Great location. Fantastic modern bungalow. Great views. Nice garden. Nice easy 3 mile bike ride to a very nice pub with great food.

  • "A clean and comfortable cottage in a beautiful location."

    Lovely views of The Western Isles from the front windows and interesting walks from the door. Notes telling us not to abuse the property or steal cutlery were necessary and detracted from the welcome. If you are looking for the isolation that the location suggests, you should be aware that there is a glamping pod in the garden and foundations are being prepared for a second one.

  • "Very nice cottage, clean and comfortable."

    We enjoyed our 2 nights stay and it’s only about an hour drive from the amazing Quiraing mountains! The only improvement would be to replace the washer/dryer because you can barely dry your clothes with 1/4 load maximum. But that’s a small detail, everything else was just great.

  • "-No había indicaciones claras para llegar a la casa, tuvimos que llamar por teléfono al tfno de Booking y seguir sus indicaciones, es decir, un horror después de un viaje largo."

    -No había indicaciones de cómo usar el agua caliente, la calefacción..... -La ropa de cama no era blanca, era muy vulgar y de mala calidad. -Todo era muy básico y precario, no la recomendaría jamás. Ha sido una mala experiencia, no contrataremos una similar nunca.

  • "This is a lovely cottage which is well equipped and warm."

    The only adverse comment I would make is that more attention to detail regarding cleaning of some kitchen utensils - this would not stop me from booking the cottage again. We were quite surprised at how remote it was and after thinking that we had made a mistake we had the most fantastic week there. It was a different holiday as we are not what I would call walkers but even if you are not a "walker" there are some lovely easy walks to do. The cottage is located on a single track road, however, every road user we came across was polite regarding stopping in the passing places - of which there are many. You will enjoy the big dark skies and wonderful views across to the Outer Hebrides and spectacular sunsets. We were blessed with lovely sunny days and on one of our walks we spotted two white tailed sea eagles - fantastic..

  • "The cottage was clean and comfortable."

    It was the view from the lounge window that kept us spellbound. Watching the changing light over the sea and the ever- changing cloud formations was fascinating. The newborn lambs in field opposite kept us entertained and amused. We didn't need to watch any tv! And then, of course, there were the beautiful sunsets! It was a perfect spot! We loved it.

  • "It was freezing cold, and the fuel burner wouldn't stay lit."

    The shower didn't get hot, so we couldn't use it. The hot tap in the bathroom was very difficult to turn off. But overall we were happy with the cottage. It wouldn't put me off using Sykes cottages again.

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.
