Description

A magical location on the western edge of Skye, Mandallagh Cottage is nestled within a small crofting hamlet accessed by a single track road winding through mountains and offering panoramic views of Dunvegan Head and, on a clear day, the Outer Hebrides. Famous for its considerable variety of flora and fauna, dolphins, whales, basking sharks, seals and sea otters are often sighted in the surrounding area. One of two self catering holiday cottages available to rent all year round, this property is within enclosed shared grounds with its own private parking. Mandallagh has an outdoor seating area overlooking the sea; an ideal place from which to watch the sun set. This is an idyllic peaceful location which, with the influence of the Gulf Stream, often enjoys relatively mild winters, however open fires and storage heating is available just in case.

Refurbished to a high standard and furnished as a home, this light spacious bungalow has an immediate feeling of comfort and warmth. The living room gives a family atmosphere around an open fire (coal only) and the quiet sitting room is a place to read or enjoy the view of the islands. With its many books and maps, and sofas on which to relax, Mandallagh is a perfect place to unwind and enjoy the area. With views that are simply stunning, Mandallagh provides the perfect holiday cottage from which to explore all the marvels that the Isle of Skye has to offer.

    Mandallagh Cottage reviews
    We liked the silence and the view on the sea. The cottage was nice for 5 Persons. The dishwasher was out of order and the brush for the toilette was very spoiled and should be replaced. But all the other things were o.k. We liked all the guides and maps in the living room for planning our hiking tours!
    Mr Joos - August 2018
    This was a very good surprise ! Indeed, this is quite far, but the place is so beautiful, and the house is big, comfortable, with all that we needed !!! Is was better than we thought when we reserved it. We would come back with pleasure :-)
    Mr Villalba - July 2018
    We have stayed in this cottage for 9 days. We have had a absolute wonderfull time. The cottage needs some TLC (especially the couch in one the living rooms, and the bathroom). But for the rest the cottage was absolute fine. For 9 days it was our home away from home. The area is stunning, the weather was fine, the sheep where fantastic, the people on Skye are very very nice. We have talked to the owner a couple of times, because of some heating problems, but everything was fixed a.s.a.p. Would recommend the accomodation and the area. It is not full of tourists, which was perfect in our opinion. We have met the most lovely people in this area. I wanted to give 5 stars, but because of the Bathroom I would give it 4 stars. For us the cottage was very big btw.
    Mrs Bakker - April 2018
    If you are looking for a time away from all the noise of the city this is for you. The cottage itself was very calming perfect for a family even though we actually went as a group of 5 friends which was still brilliant. A few things we would say to anyone staying here would be, bring food to the cottage and prepare to cook as it is very far to get to anything around this area. Bring firewood and a lot of it. Apart from that this was such a relaxing holiday with beautiful views and at night you the sky was beautiful as due to the lack of light pollution you can see so much more stars than you can normally see in a busy city. There are sheep and deer everywhere around the cottage which was nice, just make sure you close the gate so they don't get in!
    Mr Selvaraja - March 2018
    GREAT POINTS: Peaceful and quiet location. Clear 'to do' and 'don't do' instructions in the kitchen. Great wi-fi connection. Wonderfully warm and cosy. Cottage kitchen was very well equipped and everything worked, fantastic! The cottage was generally clean and tidy. It was great to have a basic kit supplied such as toilet paper, washing up liquid and dishcloths to get us started. Some great local walking books and Skye information books that were really useful. Excellent recycling information. We liked the trees in front of the house and understand why they are there (unlike lots of people writing in the visitors book) Entry was very straight forward using the box behind the cottage and we had no problems with doors or locks - nice and simple. DISAPPOINTED WITH: The cottage had a few too many nick-nacks/ornaments for us, we had to clear a few areas to put our own items on. Some dishes and pans in the cupboards were not clean. The bathroom shower had very low pressure and a leak around the bath edge soaked anything on the ledge. The bathroom flooring had a gap under the bath where unfortunately we found insects coming in. The bathroom floor had not been cleaned - a quick wipe to pick up the insects revealed dirt and dog hair. We did not use the front sitting room as there was a strong unpleasant damp smell. We struggled to get the tv to work, perhaps the poor weather interfered with the dish signal? The bin at the gate was completely full on the Saturday of our arrival (with electrical and other rubbish - possibly fly tipping by others?) so we were unable to use this for our own rubbish until the following Friday when it was uplifted. We took our rubbish to Dunvegan! A man was randomly wandering round the garden (having left the gate open) when we came back one day. He was a roofer, asked by the owners to check the roof. We let him know about the gate! He returned a couple of days later to work on the roof. It would be helpful to know this was happening so we could plan to be out to avoid noisy roof work. Unfortunately I do not think we would return to this cottage or recommend it to others.
    Mrs Ranscombe - September 2017
    Top place
    Mr Colli - August 2017
    Nice house in wonderful location. Amazing views. Not easy to get there, but well worth.
    Mr Martinez - August 2017
    In very quiet place, this cottage have a great view. The place are a little bit secluded but it is okay, we choose it for that!And it was great! We love it! The kitchen, the sitting room are really big and cosy. In the beginning, we have a problem with heating but it will resolve quickly. The only problem is the size of bathroom. For 6, it's very small. We have a great time in this cottage! If I can I will come back!
    Miss Jean - August 2017
    The cottage was fabulous, just what we were looking for - great value in a stunning location. After hitting up some of the busier 'touristy' places on the Island during the day - we were always grateful to come back to secluded Milovaig (albeit a bit of drive from some places on the Island - the peace and quiet and views were worth it!). No fancy trappings but the house was clean and comfortable with all the amenities needed to make dinner for 6 and enjoy a few G&t's watching the sun set! Would definitely recommend it and would love to come back in the future.
    Miss Hamilton Wilson - July 2017
    Will not return to this place. Everything was old and there is some smell in the house. This place needs a serious makeover. The only good thing was it has a very wonderful view of the sea and sunset from the living room.
    Mrs Ping - June 2017
    Travelling 2 Persons and a dog. Well equipped and cosy cottage. Not really suitable for > 4 persons, because of a very small bathroom. Well fenced area, which kept the sheeps out; pleasant for our dog. We find a lot of maps and interesting literature about Skye in the facility and so got proposals for amazing walks. Visiting dunvegan castle, don't miss the seal trip. Visiting Carbost, get fresh seafood from the 'oysterman'.
    Dr Liedeker - June 2017
    We had an open fire, deer in the garden, comfy beds, free WiFi and the whole of Skye to explore. We had a fabulous week and we could have easily stayed for another.
    Ms Bainbridge - July 2016
    This house is so suitable for 7 of us, and we can bring some food to cook. The location of the house is so good to see the sunrise in the morning!
    Mr Li - June 2016
    We booked this stay a bit last minute and the host was able to accommodate. Clean and well equipped both inside and with an amazing view outside. Was the quiet retreat my girlfriend and I were looking for to cap off out Scottland experience. Thank you for the great stay!
    Mr Reckard - August 2015
    Pros: spacious, comfortable, fantastic location in the northwestern corner of Skye with views on the western isles and the cliffs. Nice library in the house, good appliances. Cons: a bit old, kitchen equipment is a bit basic and some things were not in very good condition. Shower not very comfortable. This property is a very good choice if you want to stay in an authentic, cosy self-catering cottage in Skye, but don't expect the luxury of a newly built house. We were very happy though, overall!
    Mr Callens - July 2015
    The house is absolutely incredible!!! The place where it is can not be more beautiful!!! the views are marvellous and the house inside is great!!! it is full equiped, with all you can wish!!! you have teddy bear in each bed!!! :-) we were a group of 9 person and all of us were in love with this house.. we have been 8 days travelling for Scotland in different places, and Mandallagh Cottage is the top 1 of all of them!!! I don´t have anything bad about it... It was really cold when we arrive, beds were very confortable, the kitchen has everything you need, you can wash you dirty clothes... everything is great!!!
    Mr Horta - July 2015
    Mandallagh  Cottage is set in a quiet and stunning location in Skye. The views are spectacular and the accommodation is spacious
    Mrs O'leary - July 2015
    Fantastic cottage, great view, very cosy, very well equiped (kitchen, new dryer, etc.) Far away from everything, but that's what we were looking for. Many books and maps for walks available for the guests, were very useful. The lady who welcomed us was really nice.
    Mrs Grillot - August 2014
    This cottage is excellently outfitted with a superb internet connection and Sky TV. The cottage includes a washing machine, fridge and seperate freezer as well as an electric shower. The building had the somewhat 'stuffy' feel to it, as if it had been left undisturbed for a while but this subsided the longer we were there. The furniture is by now a little worn (its almost impossible to get comfortable on either the sofa or chairs and they are generally protected by throws that soak up dust. Here's the problem. Mandallagh Cottage has some of the most outstanding scenery we have seen at any cottage we have stayed at - simply amazing. But getting to the cottage is a real chore. Miles of single track roads with passing points - you will think that your satnav has gone mad. You get used to it on a longer stay but, with the exception of Dunvegan, nothing else is less than an 40 minutes to an hour in the car to get to. So you need to be well prepared and take supplies with you, because there will be no "Just nipping down to the shops". On the other hand, that's why you go to a cottage like Mandallagh Cottage - to get away from it all. The Cottage manager, Liff Pederson, is incredibly friendly and accessible, nothing was too much trouble for her.
    Mr Mcclue - July 2014
    Great location with beautiful views all round. Wish we had more time to stay. The only drawback is that the cottage only has one bathroom and could do with an additional one. Other than that it's good value for money.
    Mr Borkar - June 2014
    A beautiful, spacious cottage with an open fire, great kitchen and spectacular views. We swam every day from the rocks of Loch Pooltiel and loved our walks around the headland. This is a lush, hidden corner of Skye, well worth exploring. The Neist Point lighthouse is a good walk destination (we saw black guillemots there) and the tea room in Glendale is lovely.
    Mr Eliot - May 2014
    Very confortable place with great view
    Mr Flichy - April 2014
    Location was amazing. From the lounge window we could see the sea, the headland and a waterfall. The cottage was comfortable, nicely laid out with all you need for a short break.
    Mr Hayward - April 2014
    the trees at the front COMPLETELY block the view!! One WC and bathroom for seven beds is not quite enough
    Mr Manser - June 2013
    The views were amazing and the house was cozy.We really enjoyed our stay.
    Mr Brown - August 2012
    Cottage is comfortable and well appointed with wonderful views. The location is rather remote and not recommended if you plan on touring Skye, but for a get away and / or just chilling it would be excellent. Criticisms would be that there is a second cottage just behind (in the same grounds) which was not apparent from description. This didn't cause us any problems as couple were very friendly, but could be an issue as parking is restricted. We had two cars and struggled to get parked and get the cars turned for going out.
    Mr Connon - August 2011
    Absolutely great if you want a remote location, great for walks, sightseeing and those who like fishing both sea and river game fishing. House well equipped with all the essentials, though make sure you bring washing machine/dishwasher powder. There was a smell of damp from the very front lounge area, a broken gutter/downpipe responsible for this. But don't let this put you off fine value for money accomodation in a great location.
    Mrs Raine - August 2011
    On arrival after taking an unscheduled route via the Mallaig ferry, we were welcomed with a jaw-dropping red sunset overlooking the Outer Hebrides in one of the two front rooms. We travelled with our 1yr old and 10yr old and the dog who all loved the experiences on the island, the week passed too quickly and wished we'd stayed for 2! The housekeepers (Fiona and Lindsay) really made our stay, not only did they contact us most days to ensure we had all we needed, they babysat for two nights whilst we had dinners at the 3 Chimneys and the Old School House. Those times away from the kids to spend time together as a couple was invaluable (as those with children will understand!) Thank you again for a lovely stay, highly recommended for families or a romantic get-away for all ages.
    Mr Evans - July 2011
    We have really enjoyed our stay at this lovely cottage. The location is a very quiet one, and therefore ideal to relax and – with any luck – to watch rare birds and marine creatures. The cottage is very spacious, all rooms are stylish and comfortable furnished, and the house is overlooking the sea. The landscape hosts very stunning places, and it is a great pleasure to explore the surrounding area. We also warmly recommend trying the delicious offerings from local crofters.
    Ms Pazek - July 2010
    I have just returned from a 3 day stay at Mandallagh Cottage on the Isle of Skye, booked through yourselves. It was the best self-catering experience I have had. It was a very reasonable price, particularly as only 2 of us were staying... and it would be ideal for families, although I agree with others, that in those circumstances it might be good to have an extra bathroom/toilet - tho it was perfect for us. It was beautifully decorated with brilliant homely touches, soft furnishings and "nick nacks". The views from the second sitting room are amazing with sea and western isles views, as is the general location of the cottage. Before we went, I was a bit concerned that I would find the single track road driving a bit scary but it was totally fine, with plenty of passing places and mostly a wide open landscape. The facilities were great including Sky, wifi etc... to entertain on a rainy day, tho we mostly had fine weather. The housekeeper, Liff, was great and really helpful and her knowledge and support really enhanced our holiday. It was great that we were able to book just for part of a week, even though we stayed during summer holiday period. All in all, we had a wonderful stay in a wonderful cottage on a wonderful island.
