About Sheonagh Beaton
This croft house and land have been in my husbands family for many years. His late great uncle kept his 'beasts' on this land and grew up in an original Skye black house - the site of which is now the drying area. Dualchas was originally built 80 years ago and has been refurbished within the last 6 years to provide, what is now, a cosy bolt hole for us. We have decided to extend the cottage by one room and work will start in Sep/Oct 18. We are very excited as this will give us more room and a beautiful picture window to enjoy the fabulous view. We hope that you will enjoy it too.
Why Sheonagh Beaton chose Isle of Skye
Dualchas has one of the best views in Digg, the air is clean and there is no light pollution - meaning that on a clear night the sky is quite stunning. It has a special place in our hearts and I am sure that once you visit it will hold a special place in yours as well. We are now on Facebook and Instagram - just search Dualchas Cottage and you will be able to find all sorts of interesting facts and pictures - please feel free to share your stories and photographs

The Perfect Retreat
I loved my stay at the crofter's cottage from the first minute to the last. It is a lovely cottage, in very peaceful but dramatic surroundings. It is ideally placed for the northern and eastern aspects of Skye, being very close to The Quirang, The Old Man of Stor, and other attractions. It is very comfortable, and well kitted out, and very well looked after.
Thank you Neil, glad you enjoyed your stay.
Perfect location for all the good walks!
The view is astonishing, especially when the sun rises in the morning. The cottage is lovely decorated and has everything you need. Only downfall is the WiFi and there is barely any mobile reception, but obviously that’s something you face on the whole island. We had an amazing time and would definitely come back! The sheeps and little lambs are right in front of your door-amazing!
So glad you enjoyed your stay.
WiFi is very sporadic throughout the island and mobile signals come and go but that is part of the charm.
Happy to have you back any time
Beautiful spot. Great scenery. The croft house was magnificent. Completely enjoyed our week.
Everything about our stay was wonderful. Watching the sheep dog herding the sheep each evening was a highlight. The croft house had all of the amenities, including strong internet and hot showers. We enjoyed cooking dinner each evening as well.
Glad you enjoyed your stay
Wonderful stay on Skye
The croft was very well equipped and maintained so we had no issues with anything. We couldn't have asked for a better home base to explore Skye from.
We would definitely not hesitate in recommending the property or staying there again. I only wish we could have stayed longer!
It was a pleasure having you. You are welcome back any time.
Great stay at this very nice croft house on Skye
We stayed here in the summer of 2016 and I have to say that it was very good. The house is very well equipped, clean and offers nice views. During the day we were exploring the island, but in the evenings this house offered a welcome home base. Beds are good, showers is powerful and doesn't get cold after 5 minutes and there was a nice and well fenced garden for our dog to stay. I would recommend this place to anybody that is looking to spend some time at Skye.
A cosy bolt hole in a remarkable location.
Dualchas was warm and welcoming on arrival and a comfortable place to return after a day out exploring the beguiling enchantments of Skye. The cottage was clean and well appointed and had everything a family of four needed for a week away. The owner provided us with plenty of information prior to our stay.
Though the weather was dramatic and stormy and we peered through the mist and dreich drizzle most days, it was great to have such a cosy base for our adventures. We ate well (great coffee at Single Track, excellent pies at the Skye Pie Cafe and wonderful lunch at Cafe Sia) and had some great adventures on the Quirang, exploring the Fairy Glen, pootling about Portree (swimming at the Fingal Centre) and looking for dinosaur remains throughout Staffin Bay.
Skye captured us with its wildness and welcoming Hebridean hospitality and we will definitely return.
Skye is a beautiful island to explore. Why not go in search of the dinosaur's footprints on Staffin pier. There are many walks and there is a book to help you in the cottage. Dunvegan Castle is well worth a visit along with the local museum.
