Red Chimneys Cottage is a bright and airy, detached stone cottage in the crafting hamlet of Totaig near Dunvegan on the Isle of Skye. The cottage can sleep up to four people and offers a ground floor double room with an en-suite shower room, a twin room with an en-suite basin and WC and a family bathroom with a shower attachment.

Red Chimneys Cottage is the perfect base for small families or groups of friends wishing to discover the delights of the Isle of Skye!


The cottage was equipped to a very high standard. Despite being very lucky with the weather the underfloor heating was bliss! I just wish it had been a bit cooler in the evening so that we could light the wood burning stove. The view and surrounding area was the icing on the cake, just stunning. For the perfect get away from it all holiday in outstanding comfort then you will find it here.

We have just returned from a wonderful week at the Red Chimneys. This has to have been one of the best holidays we have had. The cottage is amazing and equipped to a high standard with everything you could ever need. The view has to be the icing on the cake sitting with a cuppa watching the sea, the birds and enjoying the peace makes for that special moment. Cannot recommend it highly enough! Will be back next year for 2 weeks as one isn't enough

We stayed at Red Chimneys for a week in early April. We'd booked the holiday as an anniversary gift for my parents for their 48th wedding anniversary. It was an 8 hour drive for us to get there but as soon as we arrived we forgot how tired we were when we saw the views from the cottage. Looking across loch Dunvegan towards the Claigan coral beach the view never got old. The cottage is clean and had everything we needed , a couple of tiny little suggestions would be more pegs for hanging washing out (there were only a few ) such a s name not to make the most of the fresh blustery air to dry clothes. And the upstairs bedroom lacked anywhere to hang clothes with the storage being drawers. These were just minor things thoug and certainly didn't impact our stay. Amenities are excellent, fridge freezer, dishwasher (we didn't use this) washer, tumble dryer , TV, DVD/ blue ray player , underfloor heating (our dog loved this) and the woodburner upstairs. The information folder mentioned the log basket would be filled with one lot of logs on arrival and the fire made up ready to light however the basket was empty and fire just full of ash. Fortunately we have a log burner at home so it wasn't a problem and we found logs in the store outside There's a great supply of books should you be unfortunate enough to have any rainy days (we had amazing weather with the only rain as we left ) and some cd's to listen to. Beds were comfortable and I slept like a log! Bathrooms were fine with brilliant water pressure for a nice hot shower. The bathroom downstairs which my parents used (they didn't have the en suite shower room) had a lovely big deep bath too. The field directly in front of the cottage has two very friendly pigs in and in the next field we were lucky end to see lambs being born. Plenty of other wildlife to be seen too, we saw a deer at dusk in the pigs field, barn owl, many Hawks and buzzards. We had a lovely relaxing stay and took the recommendations from previous guests in the guest book and visited the oldest bakery on Skye and Jans cakes both in dunvegan. All I can say is it's just as well we were so active during our stay! We had a great week and would definitely recommend this lovely quiet cottage with spectacular views.

Both location and cottage were lovely. The pigs at the bottom of the garden were the star attraction, very friendly.
