The house itself has spectacular valley views from the balcony surrounding the main 95 sq m open plan kitchen, dining and lounge area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Last weekend myself and 12 friends stayed at the Dunvegan house and although I had seen many pictures after initially booking, I was blown away when we arrived.

The rooms are all very spacious, as are the bathrooms. 13 women and not one argument over showers in the morning!

The whole house is spotlessly clean. Every room is modern, well furnished and homely. Little touches which just make a huge difference, music in the bathrooms, well equipped kitchen. I heard no complaints from the other girls but I can say I got a great sleep in a very comfortable bed.

The kitchen is to die for! Very spacious, open plan kitchen/dining/living area which was fab for socialising.

Over the weekend I overheard my friends describe the Dunvegan as "out of this world" , absolutely stunning" and some of us even looking for another excuse to come and stay for the weekend! :)

The owners Jan and Donald were a pleasure to deal with, very patient and accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble for them.

Nothing I can fault for this house, and our weekend turned out to be amazing. Dying to come back for another visit and if you are staying in this area, you would be mad not to choose the Dunvegan!

We will be back soon, thanks again! :)

A group of 15 ladies stayed 3 nights for a family members 30th birthday weekend. We had an absolutely brilliant weekend. The house is beautiful and ticked every box for us. From booking the house right up to our departure Jan was so friendly, welcoming and helpful.

Thank you for allowing us to rent this great property, I hope to see you again when we come back in the near future.
