Upstairs is a king-size double bedroom and a sitting room which again offers spectacular views.

Outside is ample off road parking and a garden with furniture. MacKenzie's Peak is a wonderful base for exploring and enjoying all this beautiful island has to offer.


Lovely house with a beautiful view
We booked MacKenzie's Peak for a short stay with the family. We arrived to find a nice holiday home with a stunning view out over the water towards Rassay. The house was clean and warm with under floor heating in all the downstairs rooms and radiators in the upstairs rooms. All the bedrooms have large wardrobes for your clothes and extra blankets should you need them. The kitchen is large and has everything you could possibly need and more and you could easily host a small feast in this house. The living room in on the first floor and has stunning views over the water. There are two bedrooms downstairs, a double and a twin, and the third is on the first floor which is a double. There is a shower and toilet on the ground floor and a bathroom on the first with a large bath and shower. The owner was very friendly and was easy to get hold of if there was any problem. We really loved our short stay here and would certainly think about staying here again.

Greeted with a smile
Greeted by the owner Nicky on arrival who lives next door with a smile and a welcome box of shortbread. Beautifully appointed cottage, spotlessly clean, a perfect home from home in an ideal location. Games, DVDs, books, jigsaws and even a telescope. The cottage was beautiful but what made it more special were the spectacular views from every room of the sea and mountains. When we visit Skye again we will definitely book this accommodation.

The property provides an excellent location to explore the island and there is a fantastic view across the loch.

The scenery was spectacular and the places of interest are worthy of your bucket list. It was lovely to have breakfast in the morning sitting at the dining table watching the mountain being reflected in the water and seeing the little ferry carrying passengers over to Raasay. MacKenzie's Peak is on the site of where John MacKenzie was born. We could not have asked for a better place to stay while enjoying Skye.

Beautiful house - disappointing garden
This house is situated between Broeadford and Portree. It has beautiful views and is decorated to a very high standard. On arrival we were met by the owner who was so nice and very welcoming. We travelled with elderly parents who were very comfortable in one of the downstairs bedrooms , one bathroom was straight across the hall from their room. We couldn't fault the house at all but sadly the garden with patio was not at all evident. We had beautiful weather for the duration of our holiday but there was nowhere to sit comfortably to enjoy the outdoors. The side and back of house was overgrown, uneven and untidy. I managed to find four plastic chairs next to an old shed but sitting on them was difficult as the ground was uneven. I even weeded the front to tidy it up a bit!! However it is a great base for exploring Skye and definitely would return . A nice outdoor area would make a huge difference.
