Wonderful base for exploring Skye.

  • 5 of 5

Mr. Murphy Miller is a most solicitous pooch who greets you as you arrive at this charming cottage just outside the town of Dunvegan on Skye. We were greeted promptly by our lovely hostess, and Murphy's owner, Jasmine. A fire had been set on a chilly Fall afternoon, and we immediately felt welcomed by both dog and owner. Each of the two upstairs bedrooms has an ensuite, with certainly the best showers in Skye. The views across the garden toward the castle on the opposite shore are marvelous. Jasmine can provide a wealth of information on local sights and hikes. Her recommendations for local restaurants were spot on - try the Red Roof just down the road in Glendale, the baking is just remarkable. Slightly further afield, the Old School Restaurant in Dunvegan never disappoints. And a drive further on to Waternish brings you to chef Michael Smith's (formerly of Three Chimneys) new Loch Bay Restaurant for spectacular seafood. All in all, we spent a fabulous three days in a lovely and comfortable cottage.

Beautiful and relaxing cottage in Colbost, Isle of Skye

  • 5 of 5

Kinnemond Cottage is the perfect place to spend some time relaxing in Colbost on the Isle of Skye. Breathtaking view of Loch Dunvegan from the table while having your tea or coffee beside a warming fireplace. The cottage was clean with ample linens, washing machine and dryer. Jasmine was a wealth of information for us, as this was our first time to Scotland. My mother and I truly enjoyed our time spent in the cottage on Isle of Skye!

Rooms with a view and a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

The view from Kinnemond Cottage dining room is one of the best we have ever experienced in an Owners Direct property. The cottage itself is roomy, very comforrtably furnished and well-equipped throughout in terms of kitchen utensils, maps, guides, binoculars etc. The owner was extremely helpful from the outset and made us feel very welcome throughout our stay. We particularly appreciated having access to the extensive garden with its attractive pond and idyllic vistas towards Dunvegan Castle.

The cottage itself is ideally situated for a thorough exploration of one of the most attractive parts of Skye. It is close enough to Dunvegan with its shops, excellent restaurant (The Old School) and museums and within easy reach of Neist Point, Skye's most westerly and very dramatic location, especially on a windy day!

Dunvegan Castle gardens are amazingly impressive, both in terms of garden design and also the unusual and varied planting. There is an excellent seafood restaurant - Loch Bay - on the Waternish Peninsula, close to the Stein Inn. Portree, Raasay and Broadford are all within easy reach of the cottage and there are some excellen walks - both inland and coastal - of varying lengths in the vicinity. We would particularly recommend the short Two Churches Walk at Dunvegan and the longer (10 miles) but exhilarating walk to MacLeod's Maidens from nearby Orbost.

We would fully recommend Kinnemond Cottage as a perfect location from which to explore the delightful scenery, cultural and culinary offerings of this attractive part of Skye.

A excellent base to explore the wonders of Skye!

  • 5 of 5

Up on arrival the fire was lit and we were welcomed by Jasmine the owner who gave the tour of the property.

This cottage is a home away from home. With everything you could need to make your stay comfortable.

I would highly recommend this cottage to any one looking to spend a week or more on Skye.

Pros - amazing views, Murphy the dog, knowledgeable owners.

Cons - if there are any we didn't find them!!!

A sure hit with our family was Murphy the dog who bounces round and is so excited to meet people. He is an excellent companion when playing in the large garden.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a nice review. I am so glad that there were no "cons" for you. I do always find out if people would enjoy the company of Murphy and keep him well under control if some prefer to have a dog-free holiday. We certainly loved seeing your girls playing with him and he missed them for a few days after you left. We are all hoping that you will return one day. You were perfect guests and we love having families here especially when they are so ready to enjoy what Skye has to offer.

Great location, beautiful views, lovely welcoming cottage

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is ideally situated, short drive to Dunvegan or Glendale. The shop in Dunvegan is well stocked with essentials. Within walking distance of Three Chimneys Restaurant.

Cottage has lovely garden and situated at the top of a hill, with views looking across to Dunvegan Castle, coral beaches and Western Isles in the distance.

Inside it is well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. The cooker is gas powered and we found it to be slightly temperamental.

Owners were most welcoming and very friendly, living just next door but very discrete.

Overall, this was a great base for us to explore Skye!
