Region: From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain’s best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.
Town: Set on the north-west of the famous Isle of Skye, the village of Dunvegan is a quirky mixture of traditional stone dwellings and modern houses. With a wide selection of shops and hotels, Dunvegan is only a mile from the thirteenth century castle home of the Clan Macleod – who are said to have had dealings with the "wee folk" at the Fairy Bridge. Also in the area - with fantastic rock forms and pinnacles - are the Cuillin Mountains, which many climbers consider some of the best in the country. The Aros Centre provides a wide variety of concerts, theatre and cinema throughout the year and is well worth a visit, whilst Portree, the island’s only town boasts and excellent range of shops, restaurants and hotels, as well as a picturesque natural harbour.

The house is lovely, on the edge of the loch.
The view across the water is beautiful. Even the
storms look fantastic. The sunsets are incredible.
The School House resturant serve really good food
but booking is needed.
Dungaven castle is worth visiting, with spectacular
waterfalls. The downside for us was the limited access
for wheelchair users. Skye is just wonderful.

Weather is all of course and we arrived on a beautiful evening, inspiring family members to send photos via mobile phones to all and sundry. The property also impressed with spacious living rooms and bedrooms. Nice walk into Dunvegan for any shopping. Equally for those inclined an averagely challenging walk from the house to the top of eithe rof MacLeod's Tables. Overall exceeded expectations
Excellent Holiday Spot

Everything was great about the location/accommodation.
The only downside is that the owner accommodation shared the same house, by a rear entrance, not what you would expect.
Again, the accommodation had no dishwasher which is a pity but I was aware of the fact that it had no dishwasher though.

If you are looking for a comfortable, relaxing place to stay, with stunning views, this is for you. Lochside is a lovely property, it's position right on the edge of Loch Dunvegan is fabulous and the welcome is warm and friendly. It is perfect peace here and only a short walk into Dunvegan itself. Try the Old School restaurant - it is very good - or, if you want to try one of the best restaurants in the country, The Three Chimneys is only 3 miles away.
