Lovely

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful location to explore the area. All amenities and gracious hosts. Purchase groceries prior to arrival, we did. Great restaurants in Dunvegan, their hours are limited. The views are spectacular from the cottage and the Isle of Skye is a must see. Cheers R.

Charming cottage in a spectacular location

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely cottage with an amazing view and a wonderful host, Jasmine. She had a fire going on our arrival. It looks over Dunvegan Loch and you can see the castle. Beautiful gardens surround the cottage and there are many Skye-magic walks close by. We also had a splendid dining experience just down the road at The Three Chimneys.

Lovely cottage in rugged landcape

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 spent 3 nights at Kinnemond Cottage. The kitchen is fully functioning, but we'd definitely advise other visitors to buy groceries in Broadford or Portree, since there are no large shops in Dunvegan. Jasmine made us very comfortable and showed us a shortcut to Dunvegan and Edinbane. We had an easy drive to Neist Point, and a reasonably easy drive to the Fairy Pools and Talisker. There was only Wifi in one room, which led to quality family togetherness for parents and two teenagers :) The beds are comfortable and the showers have excellent water pressure. We had a wonderful stay!

Can't imagine staying anywhere else!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED our stay here. Visiting the Isle of Skye was the highlight of our trip to Scotland, and staying here just made it all the more magical. Every amenity you need is provided* (including a washer/dryer) and Jasmine is the absolute best. Her directions to reach the cottage were spot on.

The views are amazing. We loved all the green, the water, even the sheep! The location is close to Dunvegan Castle and Gardens (don't miss the seal boat tour if weather permits!), Neist Point Lighthouse, Claigan Coral Beach, and beautiful scenery all around.

Jasmine was lovely and so helpful; we thoroughly enjoyed our talks with her. And of course I would be remiss not to mention the wonderful dog Murphy. He made us miss our pup back home.

I don't know when I'll get to the Isle of Skye again, but this will be my first choice for lodging!

*Tip on the wifi use: we kept getting dropped from the wifi until we moved into the TV room downstairs. Perfect connection there!

Lovely stay in a large, warm and accommodating cottage with majestic views!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough good things about this inviting property. Jasmine, the owner, from the outset was incredibly helpful with booking the stay, and warmly welcomed us to the cottage no matter our late arrival. Nestled on a beautiful parcel of land with lovely views in my favorite part of the Isle of Skye. Minutes away from the beautiful Dunvegan castle! The cottage is divided into two self-contained flats, one occupied by the owner and the other devoted to guests. The guest flat is spacious with plenty of room: 2 bedrooms, each with their own bathroom and shower upstairs, a tv room downstairs with another bathroom including a bathtub,a living room with expansive views of the water, and a well equipped kitchen including a combined washer and dryer. This was our favorite stay in Scotland, made more so by the delightful Jasmine! Thank you
