About Sheonagh Beaton

This croft house and land have been in my husbands family for many years. His late great uncle kept his 'beasts' on this land and grew up in an original Skye black house - the site of which is now the drying area.

Dualchas was originally built 80 years ago and has been refurbished within the last 6 years to provide, what is now, a cosy bolt hole for us.

Living in Glasgow we try and visit at least twice a year.

Why Sheonagh Beaton chose Isle of Skye

Dualchas has one of the best views in Digg, the air is clean and there is no light pollution - meaning that on a clear night the sky is quite stunning.

It has a special place in our hearts and I am sure that once you visit it will hold a special place in yours as well.

Wonderful stay on Skye

  • 5 of 5

The croft was very well equipped and maintained so we had no issues with anything. We couldn't have asked for a better home base to explore Skye from.

We would definitely not hesitate in recommending the property or staying there again. I only wish we could have stayed longer!

Beautiful spot. Great scenery. The croft house was magnificent. Completely enjoyed our week.

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay was wonderful. Watching the sheep dog herding the sheep each evening was a highlight. The croft house had all of the amenities, including strong internet and hot showers. We enjoyed cooking dinner each evening as well.

Great stay at this very nice croft house on Skye

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here in the summer of 2016 and I have to say that it was very good. The house is very well equipped, clean and offers nice views. During the day we were exploring the island, but in the evenings this house offered a welcome home base. Beds are good, showers is powerful and doesn't get cold after 5 minutes and there was a nice and well fenced garden for our dog to stay. I would recommend this place to anybody that is looking to spend some time at Skye.

A cosy bolt hole in a remarkable location.

  • 5 of 5

Dualchas was warm and welcoming on arrival and a comfortable place to return after a day out exploring the beguiling enchantments of Skye. The cottage was clean and well appointed and had everything a family of four needed for a week away. The owner provided us with plenty of information prior to our stay.

Though the weather was dramatic and stormy and we peered through the mist and dreich drizzle most days, it was great to have such a cosy base for our adventures. We ate well (great coffee at Single Track, excellent pies at the Skye Pie Cafe and wonderful lunch at Cafe Sia) and had some great adventures on the Quirang, exploring the Fairy Glen, pootling about Portree (swimming at the Fingal Centre) and looking for dinosaur remains throughout Staffin Bay.

Skye captured us with its wildness and welcoming Hebridean hospitality and we will definitely return.

Tranquil beauty

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a beautiful week staying in Dualchas. The weather was fantastic and the midges thankfully non-existent. The house has fabulous views over Staffin Bay and has everything needed for a comfortable home to home stay although we missed the use of a cafetiere! The house was very clean, well maintained and tastefully furnished. Beds were comfortable and we slept very well. Would certainly recommend this property if you want peace and tranquillity in stunning surroundings. Dealings with the owner were prompt and efficient.

Amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

This property ticked all the boxes.

The croft house has recently been refurbished to a high standard and has been well equipped for a stay on the Isle of Skye.

The property has amazing views over Staffin and beyond and is ideally situated for exploring the island.

Would definitely not hesitate in booking again.

Thanks for a great stay.

Skye is a beautiful island to explore. Why not go in search of the dinosaur's footprints on Staffin pier. There are many walks and there is a book to help you in the cottage. Dunvegan Castle is well worth a visit along with the local museum.
