Boasting fabulous views towards the stunning Cuillin Mountains, this three-bedroom cottage is just a five minute walk from the sea and offers simple, cosy accommodation for five people.

Situated in the historic village of Dunvegan on the beautiful Isle of Skye, this property is a charming detached, stone-built location. This lovely home-from-home also provides a fitted kitchen, separate dining room and a lounge with electric fire for colder evenings. Set in glorious scenery, the property also comes with a secluded garden, ideal for ball games or barbecues. The town of Portree and its local amenities is within easy driving distance, as are the local attractions of Dunvegan Castle, making this a wonderful base from which to explore this glorious part of the Highlands.


The house was excellent; it had everything we needed without too much cluttering the place. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. We enjoyed the countryside and meeting the people in the village who were also friendly and helpful.
Mrs Bowron

We stayed at Hillside for a friend's wedding at Dunvegan castle. The cottage is well equipped and the friendly owner has a house at the side would come a visit us regularly to ask if we need anything. Just love the cottage!!!

A great location and cottage, we loved it!
Mr Taylor

Dunvegan is a great base for a visit to Skye. It's quieter than Portree and offers beautiful scenary and several special attractions including Dunvegan Castle and Coral Beach. There are nice local walks through the village and along the Two Churches trail. The cottage is located on the outskirts of town and just a few minutes walk to the sea and amenities. In Dunvegan there is a well-stocked convenience store, a garage, a post office, several good tea shops and restaurants, and the oldest bakery in Skye. The cottage itself exceeded our expectations. It was clean and well-furnished with sufficient space for our family of five which included two teenagers. The only conflict between the kids was over who got to stay in the small bedroom which offered the kind of special, tucked away space that kids love. The landlords who live next door are gracious and helpful hosts. Great effort is taken to help guests feel welcome and comfortable in their holiday home. We highly recommend the cottage which is now among our favourite self-catering properties that we have stayed in the UK. Visitors from North America should keep in mind that like many UK properties there is no dryer. We expected this to be an issue when wet weather inevitably hit, but it wasn't a problem. There is a washing line in the backyard and plenty of clothes pins are provided along with a drying rack that is stored in the cupboard. The cottage was warm and clothes dried quickly. Visitors to the cottage can get their wi-fi fix by travelling to Portree where free wi-fi is available at the visitor centre. Free wi-fi access on Skye was not as prevalent in coffee shops and tearooms as we are accustomed to. This should not deter visitors from staying at this lovely cottage nor from choosing Skye and specifically Dunvegan as a holiday destination. We had no trouble keeping the kids busy in the evenings with the cottages good stock of books, movies, and board games. Skye offered us all a well-needed break from the constant connections to technology that have become the norm and introduced the children to the experience of island life.

Das Haus ist sehr sauber! Der Ort ist klein und beschaulich, alles ist gut zu Fu? zu erreichen! Dunvegan ist idealer Ausgangspunkt f?r Ausfl?ge auf der Insel. Wir haben uns hier sehr wohl gef?hlt! Besonders zu empfehlen ist eine "Robbenfahrt" am Schloss Dunvegan. Vielen Dank!!
