With fabulous landscapes, breathtaking sea views and a shoreline location, this stunning six-bedroom property is perfect for families and friends seeking a relaxing holiday on the Isle of Skye.

Occupying a stunning location at the end of a secluded single-track road, this impressive and welcoming property offers glorious views of Loch Dunvegan, and makes a wonderful base for exploring the magical Isle of Skye. Set on the north-western Duirinish Peninsula, this traditional three-storey property is ideal for enjoying long walks along the spellbinding shoreline, rugged cliffs and tranquil beaches. With plenty of space for up to a dozen guests, this is a fantastic base for a larger family or group of friends looking for a quiet retreat. Eagles are frequent visitors, and there may be chances to glimpse a variety of wildlife including seals, otters, deer, a range of wild birds and the famous Dunvegan seals.

Formerly the dower house for the nearby Dunvegan Castle, this beautiful 18th-century property has been sympathetically refurbished and stylishly decorated. It also retains plenty of original features including wooden floors and antique furniture which is juxtaposed with some fascinating examples of modern art. You may spend much of the time in the bright and cosy open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, but the house also has several other charming living spaces to explore including a snug and library.

Stepping into this delightful house you will soon find the wonderful main living space which comprises a kitchen, diner and lounge. The farmhouse-style kitchen and dining area is an ideal space to prepare and share a fabulous family meal, and is equipped with everything you may need including a four-oven AGA and a large dining table, perfect for the whole family to sit round and chat late into the night. The lounge is a lovely place to relax in, with plenty of seating and a traditional wood burner. The ground floor also features a spacious hallway with seats and a baby grand piano, as well as a snug with TV and plenty of seating.

Heading up to the first floor you will find three stylishly decorated and comfortable bedrooms: there are two twin rooms and a double room, each with spectacular views. This floor also offers a family bathroom and a charming open-plan seating area which overlooks the loch. A games room with two extra single beds can be reached via the rear annexe staircase.

The second floor features a beautiful library on the landing, a bathroom, and three further bedrooms: a double room and a twin room with sea views, and a double room looking toward the mountains.

Outside is a fully-enclosed garden with easy access across the paddock to the shoreline which offers wonderful views across the loch to Dunvegan Castle. The property has its own boathouse and you can launch or hire a boat across at Dunvegan Jetty. You can also try your hand at sea fishing or take an RIB boat trip to visit Eigg, Muck and Rhum.

Please note there is a refundable £500 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
