Superb, well-equipped cottage in a wonderful location! This was our second winter escape to Red Chimneys for a week in December. The cottage is thoughtfully well-equipped and comfortable throughout, and reasonably priced compared to some of the supposedly more 'fancy' cottages in Skye. We travel as a couple with a small dog but it would also be an excellent base for a family of four. Located in the hamlet of Husabost on the north west of Skye, overlooking Loch Dunvegan, it's quite isolated, surrounded by croft land and with the next nearest property (when we stayed) several hundred yards away (this property was for sale during our first visit in winter 2016 and we looked around it with a view to purchasing it - unfortunately I decided not to go ahead for various reasons, a decision I keenly regret!) Donald the crofter, who owns the land surrounding the cottage, was in the process of building a house for his brother when we visited in winter 2017, to the rear of Red Chimneys about 75 yards away - this will now be the nearest habitation.
The Husabost area is our favourite part of Skye, being somewhat off the tourist trail. We don't tend to visit Skye in summer as it's so busy, but I should imagine this area is considerably quieter than tourist hotspots like the Cuillins, the Quiraing or around Kylerhea.
Glendale is the nearest large village, two and a half miles away. Not much open in winter, just the caf? when we visited, and that was the last day it was open - nothing on the menu other than soup and hot drinks was available, but maybe it's better in season.
A very pleasant, homely cottage in a really peaceful and beautiful location, with plenty to see nearby - I'm sure we'll be back! Charles R 2018-04-11
We have stayed at this well-equipped and furnished cottage before. We love the standard of the furnishings and d?cor as well as the location. This is a beautiful house.

Wonderful Place If you want peace & quiet with stunning views then look no further than Red Chimneys. An extremely homely and comfortable cottage, it is very well equipped. Underfloor heating keeps the place nice and toasty. There is plenty of wildlife to be seen but you have to keep your eyes peeled. We saw dolphins, whales, an eagle and loads of smaller animals as well as a stag deer. The cottage is remote so be prepared to drive a lot if you go sightseeing and mind the roads, they are very narrow with passing places. Follow the directions on your booking confirmation, you will find the place even if it doesn't seem like it. I certainly recommend this place and a huge bonus is that it is pet friendly. We took our two dogs and they loved it! JimAST 2016-07-24
A beautiful cottage in an exquisite location. It was great for exploring the island and was so quiet and peaceful for that perfect get away from it all holiday. The cottage was very well equipped with books, games and DVDs should the weather force an indoor day. We would highly recommend Red Chimneys Cottage and will be booking a return visit in the not too distant future. Mrs Reilly 2016-06-26
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. Mrs Nolan 2016-06-19
