“Everything and more....”
Reviewed June 13, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

From the moment we walked through the door we knew we had made the right choice. We had 3 families made up of 6 adults and 6 children (half aged 6 and the other half aged 8). The space blew us away. Plenty of cupboard space in the kitchen to store supplies. Well equipped kitchen. Washer and dryer do keep the troops looking clean. The dining room was spacious and everyone had plenty of arm space. The bedrooms suited us perfectly. The grown ups all got beautiful bedrooms with plenty of drawer and hanging space and the children loved having a boys and girls "dormitory/ area". The bathrooms were clean. We could not fault the house at all and all of us would strongly recommend it. The location was also a hit, we spent a lot of time on the Isle of Skye. Dornie itself is a beautiful village. The store and post office were a bonus plus the castle bring within walking distant. Can't wait to stay again.

“The perfect place, the perfect surroundings and the perfect house.”
Reviewed January 26, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Arrived on Hogmany, two families, one from Canada.We really wanted to give our Canadian family a Scottish New Year and at the Red House it was just perfect. It helps being so close to Eilan Donan Castle but the icing on the cake was the owners son piping in the New Year, just made it very majical for us all. Memories that will be cherished, cannot thank Michelle and her family enough.
Oh the house was very large, very comfortable, a home from home. The stunning dining room accommodated 11 of us easily, we had great games nights here.
The garden at the fron was lovely, we were so very lucky to see otters just beyond the house on a number of occations. We adored Dornie and will be back, hopefully to this stunning house. Thank you so much.

“The Red House Dornie Amazing Family holiday.”
Reviewed November 2, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The Red House in Dornie as got to be the best holiday break I have had, The owners are very friendly and give you a warm welcome on arrival.

The house its self is very spacious although it is a large six bedroom property it is still surprisingly warm and clean.
Our part had 5 children three of which are teenagers and 5 adults, and we still had plenty of space.

The location is fantastic, if you appreciate outstanding views this is the top place to stay.

“The best rental we have had ....so far !”
Reviewed August 30, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This is an excellent property - spacious and comfortable, at least as well equipped as home, and in a brilliant location. The web site doesn't do this well looked after property justice really - the rooms and furnishing are extremely well proportioned and appointed, and everything works ! We managed 12 adults and 3 little ones at one point during our stay, and the house easily absorbed everyone in comfort.
It has lovely outside space to front and back too, with a barbie grill and a great deck at the back, and a breakfast bench in the front garden about 5 or 6 metres from the Loch shore - perfect for sunny morning bird spotting and cat tickling !
The owners were friendly and helpful, and although an expensive property due its size, I think it represents very good value.
Dornie is a lovely little village, well situated for local wanderings, and a great launch pad for expeditions to Skye, Applecross, and beyond.
Highly recommended.

Liked best: The sunsets across the lock from the upper windows - priceless !
Liked least: The Back steps up to the deck proved impossible for my elderly relatives - a very minor gripe.

“Fantastic place to stay especially for a large group”
Reviewed January 13, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We stayed in the red house for New Year and had a brilliant stay. There were 11 adults, 1 toddler and dogs but the house was plenty spacious for us all. Unlike most places for large groups there was plenty of space in the Kitchen to cook, enough utensils, a variety of large pots/pans, storage space and laundry facilities. The lounge and dining area were also plenty big enough for us all, and all bedrooms were a good size.

The location was superb for exploring the local Munroes, Isle of Skye plus some great coastal/buggy walks. There really was something for us all.

Definitely recommend staying here!

“Wonderful!”

My husband and I rented the Red House the week we were married at the Eilean Donan Castle. We stayed with a handful of our friends and found the house to be clean, comfortable, and roomy enough for the ten adults (four couples and two solitary gentlemen). The castle was a huge draw for us and we were thrilled that there's a great view of it from the front garden and it's a mere 3 minute walk from the house. A fantastic pub, The Clachan, is located @ 60 feet from the front door and the village itself is a great home base for hillwalking or exploring Skye and the Highlands. We had an amazing time here and can't wait to return. Enjoying a cup of tea on the picnic table in the front garden is the perfect way to begin a morning. The location and value of this place can't be beat - highly recommend!
