Excellent, comfortable, friendly owner

  • 5 of 5

Fourth time here . Feels like our second home. Family meals enjoyed at the table looking out at the loch. Wheelchair accessible with bedroom and shower room downstairs so good. Brilliant drying room if you have bad weather but have to say we've always enjoyed sunshine. Wish we could stay longer than a week. Love it.

Perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house is very conveniently located for visits to Kyle of Lochalsh area, Isle of Skye and North-West Highlands.

House itself is warm, clean, well equipped and quiet. It was very much like taking our own home with us for a holiday since everything we needed was there, and even more: games, videos, books, etc.

10/10, 5 stars, ticks all boxes, take it and you will have care-free holiday when it comes to your stay.

Great cottage in a great location!

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay in Dornie, cottage was well equipped, comfortable and exactly as described. Particularly liked the open plan kitchen and dining...i think as a family group of 6 we spent most of our time there and it worked very well. Ian (the owner) was very helpful & accommodating. Dornie itself is a good place to be I think, very close to Skye for great days out but also options on the mainland as well weather depending - a central point for that part of the highlands. The only problem really or downside was the midges, bad this year :( It meant leaving any windows open to air / ventilate impossible. Not such an issue on cooler days but on warm days the cottage became pretty stuffy for sleeping. I don't know if midge nets exist for windows (they are pretty small) or how practicable a solution that would be but something like that would have made the stay perfect.

Perfect find in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was even better than we anticipated or had seen online. It is a huge home and was just perfect for the six of us. The location is so beautiful and serene and is a great base for exploring Isle of Skye and the Highlands. We enjoyed lots of walks around there area. The Clachan restaurant nearby was excellent and coffee at the Old School Gallery was spot on! Washing machine and a dryer and drying room were very welcome as we had been on the road for 4 weeks! The house has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Well equipped kitchen. Highly recommended and the owner was very easy to deal with.

A real family home, not just another cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have been in many holiday homes, but rarely you find such a clean, well equipped and spatious house. Situated in a peaceful surrouding, with many intersting places to visit within reachable distance. We enjoyed our stay very much, regrettably we couldn't stay longer. When you love the beautifull Scottish landscape and like hillclimbing, just book this house and enjoy!

The contact with the owner is very pleasant and informative.

Perfect Spot in the Highlands

  • 5 of 5

This house was just perfect for our group with its location close to many Highland sites including those on the Isle of Skye. The house itself had anything you would need - including wireless Internet access. If you are into a relaxing vacation, you can just enjoy the lovely little town of Dornie. The people were so friendly, and we liked walking to the stores, pubs, and tea room right down the street. There were also easy hikes right out the cottage's front door. Highest recommendation.

Dornie has a well-stocked village shop/Post Office as well as The Dornie Hotel (Bar & Restaurant) and The Clachan Pub. Good food and fine ales are served in both.

Nearby Kyle of Lochalsh also has a supermarket, swimming pool and a small gym.
