Cottage details

Welcome to Dunmara our homely cottage on the beautiful Isle of Skye. Dunmara sits on the hillside over looking Caolas Scalpay, the narrow sea strait which separates Skye and Scalpay and as such offers amazing views north and south from its large windows.

Dunmara is our own personal mountain retreat which we have established to use as a holiday home in the Scottish Highlands. It is cosy, warm and relaxing in a beautiful location, and has been decorated and set up with this in mind. The cottage was built in the 1970s and has been adapted to make it a practical base for walking, hiking, sightseeing and generally enjoying all the Isle has to offer. What it is not, is a purpose built modern soulless rental property – it is our home in the Highlands.

The cottage is fully centrally heated.

Spacious lounge

The lounge is a spacious well furnished room in which to relax and unwind after an enjoyable day on the island. There are fabulous views from the window looking back towards the Kyle and the mainland, and the wildlife which can be seen in the sea, air and land all around.


The kitchen is fully equipped with a modern electric hob and oven, a microwave, slow cooker, fridge,freezer,dishwasher and all the necessary utensils for a fully functioning kitchen.

There are four good sized bedrooms, two with double beds and en-suite bathrooms, and two with twin beds.

Off the rear entrance hall there is a drying room fitted with rails & hangers and shelving to dry off wet clothing and boots if the weather has been a little unkind. In addition in the laundry room just off the kitchen there is a washing machine and a tumble dryer if required.
