“Perfect base to explore Skye”

Barbara met us at the house and showed us how everything worked and left us with a thoughtful welcome hamper. House was big enough as only the two of us and had the bedroom at the rear of the property with super views over the loch in the morning. House is well equipped with all one needs. Bed comfy and bedding of good quality. We were lucky to have a week of sunny dry weather and enjoyed sitting in the garden with a glass of wine - in October! The living room is very comfy and we felt very relaxed and stayed in quite a few evenings. Lovely quiet spot just outside the main street in Dunvegan. The village shop has all one needs for basic cooking, plus some decent wines. Great base from which to explore NW Skye. Three Chimneys only a short taxi ride away. Portree 20 mins or so with large co-op. Fab drive over the hills on single track road rather than the main shorter route. Would recommend No. 5 for couples or a family. Thank you Barbara for a lovely relaxing stay.

5,Castle Crescent is a well appointed warm and comfortable house. Barbara welcomed us with a basket of local goodies, as well as delicious home made bread and new laid eggs.
The view over Loch Dunvegan from the kitchen window is stunning, a constantly changing panorama of sky, clouds and water. There are lovely walks from the door - up to the castle and beyond, was a favourite.
The village has all we needed in the way of shops, and there are various good places to eat.
Wifi was a bonus, as the mobile signal is patchy.
Barbara's generosity and kindness made our stay outstanding . We returned rested and refreshed., and looking forward to returning one day.

Lovely house, very well equipped, beautiful view over Loch Dunvegan to McLeod's Tables. And, even more important, a very sweet owner who regaled us (and every other guest, too) with a big basket full of good things, milk, bread, wine, fudge, cereals, free range eggs.
Even the "wee dram" was in the house. We were sad to leave and certainly will come back.

Our family had the pleasure to stay here early June 2015. Barbara was very responsive to any questions before our arrival and was so welcoming and accommodating She left such a nice goodie basket which was so helpful since we arrived late in the evening. The apartment was very comfortable and made us feel right at home - we had everything we needed and what views out of the back windows!! What a beautiful place and we enjoyed so many great hikes on Skye - Quairang, Coral Beach, The Old Man of Storr and the Fairy Pools. This was the highlight of our trip to Scotland.

We enjoyed 4 nights at this wonderful property. Everything you could possibly need is provided for in the house. The owner is very welcoming and accommodating. We had a 2 month old baby with us and Barbara had provided a travel cot with bedding and had it all nicely set up for us in the room. Lovely touch with the welcome pack too.
