Great “home base” for the Isle of Skye!
Very cozy place to stay when exploring the Isle of Skye! Well appointed and apparently newly-remodeled kitchen! Owners very responsive and kind. Doesn’t hurt that there’s a pub next door that has excellent local fare and pints to accompany. Nearby hotel (next door in the other direction) also has good variety of local meals (and pints).
Beautiful, great location and a fully equipped kitchen.
Comfortable house, very cosy and homely. Decor lovely. Lots of extras provided, which was a surprise eg dishwasher tablets, fairy liquid, detergent and softener. One small thing to make it perfect would be a few more coat-hangers. We have had a great week and enjoyed the Cava.
Comfortable and well decorated house. Nice village
We have enjoyed the stayed very much. I liked most the walks and the views.
Great accommodation good location. Perfect for hillwalking base
Excellent location and base for hillwalking holiday. Having the pub next door saved having to cook. Having the barbecue was great for cooking outside on the sunny days.
lovely property and well equiped
We enjoyed our stay at Dornie and would recommend it. The scenery around is breathtaking and if we visit the area again we would be booking Eilean Donan !!

A perfect spot to tour Skye and Applecross
We searched for a self catering place in the isle of Skye and are happy to say that we have found a superb house!
The location: the house is quiet yet - a short walk away and we have found ourselves at the entrance to the Eilean Donan castle. Dornie is well placed as a starting point for any Skye trip but also for the Applecross peninsula. We have found it a much better location than at some place on the island, where one has to drive quite a lot to reach other locations
The pub: right next to the house is the Slachan pub : a charming small local pub with great atmosphere and nice visitors. We highly recommend it!
The house: the place is roomy - a family of 5 easily fit inside. Everything was in order and felt clean and new. When we cooked - it was as if we are the first to use the kitchen. The bathroom is modern and new - I have to say that it was beyond our expectations - the pictures do not do right to the place. It is much better than the images on the vrbo site.
Beyond kitchen and bath - we had fun playing with the board games and watching TV. A very pleasant stay!
The hosts: Bernadette and Douglas did all they could to make our stay a pleasure - we have not met them but they have even sent Doug's brother to bring us a present!
Overall - a perfect base to travel in the area!
Dornie is located at the meeting point of Loch Duich, Loch Alsh and Loch Long and only a short walking distance from the world famous Eilean Donan Castle. Within easy reach of Kyle of Lochalsh, Applecross, Plockton and the magical, mystical Isle of Skye.
