The following places are ideal day trips to enjoy during your stay at the cottages:

Check out The Skye Guide for more info on the local area.

Both cottages are only about 10 minutes’ drive from the famous Three Chimneys Restaurant. The village of Dunvegan is approximately 8 miles away (20 minutes by car) and home to another great eating establishment – The Old School Restaurant (Local Taxi available).  The Red Roof Cafe is definitely worth a visit for lunch.


Other local facilities include the Glendale Post Office, Lephin, just a few minutes drive away.  This has a well stocked shop and is open 6 days a week (closed on Sundays). The village of Dunvegan also has a good shopping facility and a petrol station.


The nearest supermarkets are situated in Broadford, Portree & Kyle, these are approximately 1 hours drive from the cottages.  This part of the world is remote so a bit of pre-planning regarding food purchase in advance is recommended.


A great feature about Skye is the availability of fresh croft produce. Suppliers of fruit and vegetables, and free range eggs, are within walking distance of each cottage. Fresh locally caught seafood is also available nearby during the summer months.


Portree, the Island’s capital, is some 32 miles away and has all the services and facilities you would expect of a town including supermarket, cinema, good range of shops, hotels, bars and restaurants.
