Property Description

With splendid views of the Trotternish Hills and Loch Greshornish, in the unspoilt north of Skye, this 5 star, detached stone cottage is a peaceful, secluded and comfortable retreat on one of the island’s most picturesque peninsulas. Décor and furnishings are to a very high standard and include the owner’s distinguished collection of Scottish paintings; the kitchen has local stoneware, cast-iron casseroles and an induction hob. Every room looks down to the Loch, where in summer the dawn breaks early and the moon throws a silver path across the water. Skye is the ramblers’ paradise where the Cuillin Mountains can be tackled by climbers or easy walks taken along cliffs and foreshore. The nearby Trotternish peninsula offers some unusual rock formations, where a combination of volcanic basalt and softer sandstone and limestone has caused spectacular landslips and sheer cliffs.
The island, renowned for its excellent seafood and wonderful restaurants, has something to suit everyone. Visit Dunvegan Castle, Neist Point Lighthouse and the old fishing village at Stein. The ‘Blackhouse’ Museum at Duntulm shows how islanders lived in thatched stone houses; the Aros Centre in Portree shows how the sea eagle has been reintroduced on Skye. Ferry trips can be made to the Outer Hebrides or a boat trip into the Cuillins. Tour the island by car or take an easy walk around the 4-acre garden and to the secret shores of Loch Diubaig or just walk out of the back door for 10 minutes for a glorious view of the Ascrib islands. The setting has it all, inviting relaxation and discovery with glimpses of the wildlife, birdlife and sealife. Shop 9 miles. Pubs and restaurants 4 miles.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. We didn’t realise the location was quite so secluded and private - the photographs didn’t sell that point as well as it could have done. Also the building was more spacious in the grounds than the photos indicated. Oct 2012.
  2. A lovely home: very comfortable, very warm, with excellent equipment and great views out across the loch. It is very secluded but TV and internet connections are very good. A car is essential. Sept 2012.
  3. Absolutely beautiful cottage in a beautiful location, AMAZING! June 2012.
  4. Cottage was to a very high standard, although weather was not to good we still had a fantastic time. Great area for walking. Favourite places we went was The Three Chimneys. Edinbane Inn & Red Roof Cafe in Glendale. May 2012.
  5. Very well equiped cottage. Excellent in all aspects. Oct 2011.
  6. A spacious and very comfortable property in a wonderful location with loch views. July 2011.
  7. We thought it was a beautifully maintained and extremely well-equipped, spacious home. Just wonderful in every way. Sept 2010.
  8. The property is in a brilliant location, it is well equipped, spacious, lovely and warm, and has a nice ambiance. Oct 2009.
  9. We had been recommended Diubaig House and were not at all disappointed. It was a proper home as opposed to being simply rented and was very comfortable. Also Greshornish is a wonderful place to be based, secluded but only 3 miles from the main road to Dunvegan/Portree. We would love to return. That says it all, I think! Sept 2009.
  10. The property was of the highest possible quality. Aug 2009.
  11. The overall quality of the accommodation, furnishing and fittings was excellent, beyond our best expectations. Aug 2009.
  12. Apart from the sheer pleasure of living in such a beautiful house in such a spectacular setting we were also very impressed with the personal attention given by the owner. Prior to our visit she sent a pack of information relevant to the house which included amongst other things, detailed directions, photos of places to visit, where we could shop, including opening hours and where to eat out. She also provided three emergency phone numbers of friends who live nearby. In the house there was also a wealth of information to help us make the most of our holiday, some of it written by her. The day before we left she again called, (from Italy!) to check that everything had gone well. We had a wonderful holiday, and even on wet days it was a pleasure to stay in Dubaig House and fully appreciate what a unique home it is. Aug 2008.
  13. Both the quality of the accommodation and the location make this property a Skye paradise. March 2008.
  14. Excellent property in an ideal location. A walking wonderland just outside. Oct 2007.
  15. Despite being on a remote peninsula once inside it was home from home. Extremely tastefully decorated and the owners love of the area is clear to see. It was like a comfy tardis inside. Aug 2007.
  16. The standard of the property - Duibaig House, Skye was excellent. The owner sent lots of very useful info after we had booked and the decor and homeliness of the property was very pleasing. It was a home rather than a holiday let. April 2007.
  17. The location is always conducive to a restful holiday. The local environment and wildlife constantly surprise us with new things to see and do. Aug 2006.
  18. One of our best holiday experiences: a fine property; delightful location; good walking; local fishing; excellent restaurants; the beauty of northwest Skye! July 2006.
  19. An excellent property, ideally situated by the loch. The facilities were excellent. A thoroughly enjoyable holiday. April 2006.
