A beautiful, gracious house in a quite stunning location. That sums up Kinlochfollart, situated right on the shore of Loch Dunvegan on the west coast of Skye and within walking distance of the village itself.

Overview

Reached by a short drive from the single track road, it has a secluded situation in several acres of its own garden grounds with extensive loch frontage beyond (tenants are welcome to bring their own craft).

This solid, white, Victorian house was once the local manse. The manses of those days were large and spacious, not just because the ministers tended to have large families, but also because they were duty bound to give overnight accommodation to any poor unfortunate turning up at the door in need of it. You may be glad to hear that that is not a custom which is likely to trouble tenants today!

Kinlochfollart (Loch Follart was the old name for Loch Dunvegan) is no exception and will sleep eight adults and two children in considerable comfort.

On the ground floor is an elegant sitting room with open fire, which in turn gives on to a delightful conservatory, perfect for enjoying the sun in midge-free comfort. There is a music room with grand piano, a large most excellently-equipped breakfasting kitchen and a dining room/games room with games and a small pool table which is sure to be a focal point in less pleasant weather. There is also a shower room and a utility room.

On the first floor are two double (ziplink) bedrooms (both en suite), a single bedroom and additional bathroom. On the second floor are a further double bedroom and three single bedrooms, plus a further bathroom. The accommodation is therefore extensive and very versatile.

Map & Local

Dunvegan village has a small supermarket and a bakery, as well as several hotels. The local must-sees are, of course, Dunvegan Castle, the ancient seat of the Clan MacLeod and the Coral Beaches.

For 'foodies' the legendary Three Chimneys Restaurant is just a couple of miles up the road. However, if you don't feel like pushing the boat out quite that far, the Schoolhouse restaurant in the village is also highly regarded.

The flat-topped hills behind the house are known as MacLeod's Tables and offer excellent hill walking. You can also have a go at tackling the mighty Cuillins further south. Boat trips to view the seals in the surrounding waters also leave from the village.

Dunvegan also benefits from excellent road connections to the other attractions of this wonderful island. Portree, the 'capital' is within a half hour drive, from where there are all sorts of boat trips to be enjoyed. You can cross the Trotternish peninsula and visit Staffin, famous for its fossils and the dinosaur bone that was found on the beach there, climb up to the Old Man of Storr and perhaps come back via the amazing rock formations of the Quiraing and Uig, where the ferries leave for the Hebrides.

You may be entranced too by the amazing wildlife which Skye has to offer - otters, deer, porpoises, seals, even the occasional whale in the surrounding waters and, in the sky, look out for the sea eagles which have now been re-introduced here.

Please note: while we make every effort to be as accurate as possible, the actual position of the cottage indicated on the map above and the proximity of the amenities in the Local Info section cannot be guaranteed to be precise and should be used as a guide only.
