Reviews

“We are sad to say we're now at home writing this review. The Red Chimneys Cottage is a beautifully thought out cottage, with everything you could possibly need. The underfloor heating is fabulous downstairs and the wood burner upstairs keeps the whole cottage cosy. The kitchen is so well equipped, it's like home from home.The views are spectacular from the cottage. We didn't see much wildlife around the cottage, as it was mostly dark when we were there. But the island has so much to offer when exploring. We wrote our sightings in the thoughtful wildlife book that is there for guests to write what they've seen.The cottage is remote, so be prepared to drive to places if you're out on an adventure. The roads are narrow and a bit tricky at times. Ian loved them with his land rover to play with on them.Thank you to Fiona and Mark for providing such a great bolt hole.”

“We visit Skye twice a year and have found a second home at Red Chimneys!All the best views on your doorstep. Looking across Dunvegan Lock the Sun rise above the Cullins on the left and Coral Beach to the Right. Seals Otters Deer and Peregrine Falcons all seen from the Garden!Underfloor heating and a wood burner kept us cosy and warm in November.Well equipped kitchen for self catering and Three Chimneys restaurant just down the road for a special night out.Large contained garden for our two Beagles to explore. Trouble free relaxation in the most beautiful peaceful location we have found to date. We got home and booked again, the next available date, in January.Perfect”
