The cottage was equipped to a very high standard. Despite being very lucky with the weather the underfloor heating was bliss! I just wish it had been a bit cooler in the evening so that we could light the wood burning stove. The view and surrounding area was the icing on the cake, just stunning. For the perfect get away from it all holiday in outstanding comfort then you will find it here.

Both location and cottage were lovely. The pigs at the bottom of the garden were the star attraction, very friendly.

We spent a delightful week at Red Chimneys. The cottage was equipped with everything we needed and more. It was a real home from home and the internet was great for two teenagers! The views were wonderful. We will definitely return.

The owner had thought carefully about the interior design of this beautiful property. It was gorgeous, very stylish and furnished to a high standard. We loved every day of our holiday. The owner was always ready to help if necessary and was very friendly. It was a very comfortable place to be, and had stunning views.

We liked the isolated location, the wonderful views and the the character of the cottage. A great break on a wild but beautiful island.

Really loved the location of this cottage which has been renovated furnished to a high standard. Everything about it was perfect. Exceptionally dog friendly and a pleasure to stay in. Great communication from the owner, we would definitely return.

The cottage was warm, cosy and very well maintained by the owners. It was situated in a stunning, relaxed location yet Dunvegan (and other sightseeing locations) were easily accessible by car. Plus, pet friendly ++

The cottage had stunning views across Dunvegan Loch. Also within clear sight was Dunvegan castle the snow tipped Cuillin hills. The house had a traditional farm cottage look from outside appears to have been renovated, furnished decorated to a very high standard inside with all mod cons whilst still retaining some of it's authentic charm. The location on the west coast of Skye was also a perfect base to then further explore the other parts of the isle.

We were looking for peace and quiet and this cottage did not disappoint. The location is off the beaten track with a great view to enjoy. The log burner on an evening was also great.

It was just perfect.

The location of the property is fantastic, the views across to Dunvegan are great. Beautifully furnished throughout and the underfloor heating and log burner really do the job after a day's walking in November. Skye is beautiful and the hospitality given to us whilst there really made our holiday. Well worth the 12 hour drive. It was important to us that it was suitable for our dogs as well and the dog bowls being provided was a nice touch and made us feel that we weren't taking advantage by taking our dogs. They also loved the underfloor heating and log burner.

Very homely well equipped cottage. Fabulous views over Dunvegan Loch, coral beach, Dunvegan Castle, the Cullin mountains and Mcleods Tables.

Position was great with amazing views. The standard of furnishing and equipment supplied was far greater than expected-quality was everywhere!! An extremely comfortable home from home.

If you want peace & quiet with stunning views then look no further than Red Chimneys. An extremely homely and comfortable cottage, it is very well equipped. Underfloor heating keeps the place nice and toasty. There is plenty of wildlife to be seen but you have to keep your eyes peeled. We saw dolphins, whales, an eagle and loads of smaller animals as well as a stag deer. The cottage is remote so be prepared to drive a lot if you go sightseeing and mind the roads, they are very narrow with passing places. Follow the directions on your booking confirmation, you will find the place even if it doesn't seem like it. I certainly recommend this place and a huge bonus is that it is pet friendly. We took our two dogs and they loved it!

We have just returned from a wonderful week at the Red Chimneys. This has to have been one of the best holidays we have had. The cottage is amazing and equipped to a high standard with everything you could ever need. The view has to be the icing on the cake sitting with a cuppa watching the sea, the birds and enjoying the peace makes for that special moment. Cannot recommend it highly enough! Will be back next year for 2 weeks as one isn't enough

We stayed at Red Chimneys for a week in early April. We'd booked the holiday as an anniversary gift for my parents for their 48th wedding anniversary. It was an 8 hour drive for us to get there but as soon as we arrived we forgot how tired we were when we saw the views from the cottage. Looking across loch Dunvegan towards the Claigan coral beach the view never got old. The cottage is clean and had everything we needed , a couple of tiny little suggestions would be more pegs for hanging washing out (there were only a few ) such a s name not to make the most of the fresh blustery air to dry clothes. And the upstairs bedroom lacked anywhere to hang clothes with the storage being drawers. These were just minor things thoug and certainly didn't impact our stay. Amenities are excellent, fridge freezer, dishwasher (we didn't use this) washer, tumble dryer , TV, DVD/ blue ray player , underfloor heating (our dog loved this) and the woodburner upstairs. The information folder mentioned the log basket would be filled with one lot of logs on arrival and the fire made up ready to light however the basket was empty and fire just full of ash. Fortunately we have a log burner at home so it wasn't a problem and we found logs in the store outside There's a great supply of books should you be unfortunate enough to have any rainy days (we had amazing weather with the only rain as we left ) and some cd's to listen to. Beds were comfortable and I slept like a log! Bathrooms were fine with brilliant water pressure for a nice hot shower. The bathroom downstairs which my parents used (they didn't have the en suite shower room) had a lovely big deep bath too. The field directly in front of the cottage has two very friendly pigs in and in the next field we were lucky end to see lambs being born. Plenty of other wildlife to be seen too, we saw a deer at dusk in the pigs field, barn owl, many Hawks and buzzards. We had a lovely relaxing stay and took the recommendations from previous guests in the guest book and visited the oldest bakery on Skye and Jans cakes both in dunvegan. All I can say is it's just as well we were so active during our stay! We had a great week and would definitely recommend this lovely quiet cottage with spectacular views.

This cottage has to be one of the best holiday cottages I have stayed in...ever! It has been upgraded to a high standard and made a perfect base for our holiday. The dogs loved the underfloor heating and we loved the wood burner! There was a telescope for watching the abundance of wildlife surrounding the cottage. The owners had thought of everything and had provided games, books, DVDs for rainy days as well as leaflets about local attractions to visit. It was the perfect spot for star gazing and we even managed to see the aurora borealis during our trip. We will be back again next year!

Arrived at the cottage just as it was going dark so our first impressions included a sensational sunset so we really got the Wow factor. Really lovely & secluded spot away from the towns, but close enough not to feel isolated. We loved the whole place. We have stayed at quite a few rentals over the years & this one stands out because of the attention to detail it has been given. Furnished to a high standard & all the little touches were much appreciated-plenty of towels, all basic kitchen needs, nice soap in the bathrooms & even Christmas decorations. Under floor heating & wood provided for the wood heater meant that even though the weather wasn't great, we were nice & toasty all the time. Highly recommended

A beautiful cottage in an exquisite location. It was great for exploring the island and was so quiet and peaceful for that perfect get away from it all holiday. The cottage was very well equipped with books, games and DVDs should the weather force an indoor day. We would highly recommend Red Chimneys Cottage and will be booking a return visit in the not too distant future.
