Timber House, a self catering property with a difference. An eco-friendly house, larch clad and built to blend into the landscape of this beautiful environment, offers all the qualities of modern living. The house is warm and airy, the large windows give you the most fantastic views. You certainly would not want to miss out on views like these, on a clear day you can see Skye's most majestic peaks, the Cuillins.
There is no where on Skye that is too far for a day’s outing. Portree the ‘capital’ of Skye is about half an hour’s drive from the Timber house. Dunvegan castle and gardens are just a few miles and from here you can also take a boat trip and visit the seal islands and of course the wonderful coral beaches just north of Dunvegan.
The house is detached and has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a utility room and a large open plan ground floor with interconnecting kitchen, dining and living room areas. In addition to the stunning panoramic views across the loch from the open glazed areas, the house has a wood-burning stove to ensure the elements are always kept at bay.
The Timber House is only a few minutes walk from the famous 'Three Chimneys' restaurant, arguably one of the finest restaurants in Scotland. The small hamlet of Glendale, 3 miles, also has a small licensed restaurant, village store and post office.

Absolutely beautiful views , very private although neighbours close by . Outdoor furniture needed to enjoy the outdoor space. Picture windows amazing. Inside house modern and sofa very comfortable. All bedding and towels clean, kitchen needed a clean and the paint on walls needed touching up . Skirting boards and doors needed a good clean very dusty and I cleaned door handles and surrounding woodwork myself. The beautiful lights above the dining table were very dusty and hadn't been cleaned on a long time. The toilet upstairs had a brown stain in bowl...which I cleaned . Kitchen drawers were all clean and tidy. Kitchen well equipped. Overall a lovely stay just needs a bit of TLC...
The Timber House is a real treasure and a lovely, relaxing place to spend a week. The bedrooms are spacious and the open plan living space downstairs offers amazing views from its large picture windows. It's just a few minutes away from Dunvegan and some beautiful local spots, and within striking distance of some of the other main sites on Skye such as the Quiraing, Cullins, Talisker Bay, etc. While the house is showing its age in one or two spots, it has everything you need and retains its cosiness on colder days. We would definitely recommend!
We had an incredible week in Skye at Timber House. Thanks to everyone at Wilderness and the owners for sharing their beautiful house. The design of the house is great. Very thoughtfully planned out, not ostentatious but the quality is in the right places. In particular, the superb design and position of the windows pretty much means you never feel like you're missing out on Skye if you don't fancy going out. The view of the loch is beautiful, and the wilder the weather gets, the better the house works. We loved it. Thanks again
This is a lovely house with spectacular views. It is a very restful place as is Skye. There are some aspects of the house that need some attention such as new table lamps for the bedroom so you can read, and for comfort for children. The bin is broken as well. These are minor things that need to be sorted and they did not detract from the wonderful holiday.
We have stayed in the Timber House several times over the past four years. Although a lovely property, in a great location, it now requires some investment on things such as garden furniture, sofas, crockery and other basics.
The cottage was excellent with spectacular views of Skye and very well equipped. It was lovely to sit at the picture window and watch the changing view including the lambs, birds and seals.
I am very happy for my holidays in Timber Haouse It is a very , very good place , I enjoy. Thank you very much, it was great. I would recommend this location.
We had a magical week in the Timber House - it is so serenely beautiful and we loved watching the seals in the loch. The house is really special, very calming and very comfortable.
Truly superb accommodation with stunning views of the loch. Highly recommend this beautiful lodge to anyone who appreciates style, quality and an appreciation of nature.
We really enjoyed our time at Timber House. The views from every room are amazing. We loved the wood burner and waking up to sheep in the front yard. The kitchen was well equipped. Highly recommended. Future guests may want to know that mobile service in the area comes and goes, though the internet worked well. The house is in a remote area and is therefore extremely quiet, though the wind and rain can be quite loud in the main bedroom, so bring ear plugs if that will keep you awake. We hope to come again!
The most perfect time in the most perfect house. Views from every window. You really can't capture how great it is to live in this space with a photograph. Go!
A perfect place for holidays on Skye. Fantastic views over the bay.
The reviews we read before booking are totally true! A most fabulous bolt hole in a truly beautiful location. Timberhouse is very well equiped; the kitchen inventory was particularly impressive. With no restaurants open it was great to have everything needed to cook a festive feast. The weather threw it's worst at us; a little worrying to see the floor to ceiling glass bowing in the wind!! But Timberhouse kept us warm & snug.
The Timber House was just what we needed...tranquil, peaceful, a great retreat from the fast pace of every day life. The views from the amazing windows were ever-changing from morning to night....every day offered us something new and unique. We even saw otters! This should be prescribed on the NHS as a stress-management tool...absolutely wonderful.
Easy to book, good communication,fantastic building, lovely welcome pack, everything as described and better. I could not recommend this site more, we will definitely use again when we head back North
A lovely house that is stylishly furnished (we'd love to live in a house like this all year round!). Despite it's minimalist design, it is very cosy and it's location guarantees peace and quite. A great place to stay any time of the year.
Great house, fantastic location. Certainly hope to come back.
Timber house is a very pleasant place to stay, contempory house with stunning views. We wish we would have stay even longer. Highly recommended.
Fantastic break in a wonderful contemporary house. The timber house is ideally located in Skye, close to the small town of dunveggan, whilst being far enough away to make you feel as though you are alone in the beautiful setting ! Can't wait to book again for next year.
Skye has got into our blood and we've returned again and again - finding Timber House has been icing on the cake. Every time we looked out the huge windows we didn't know if we'd be greeted by dancing stoats, racing sheep, wandering highland cattle or lazy, basking seals. The only downside of Timber House is how you feel when you have to leave.
We have been coming to the Timber House every year since 2008 and we love it. Great location, great eating less than a mile away at The 3 Chimneys or in Dunvegan, easy access to the rest of Skye. However the best bit about the house aside from it being extremely easy to live in is the most wonderful panoramic views from the windows - stunning! There is always something to see - seals basking on the shores or playing in the loch or an amazing variety of birds. We are always sad to leave.
Timber house is an amazing design. It is so light and clean with very good quality apppliances and comfortable beds and bright modern decor.
We found Timber House beautifully placed just above and over looking the end of a loch where there were lovely views over the water. The little town of Dunvegan was not too far to drive and had some good little shops for our daily needs. There were many interesting cliffs and beaches to walk and explore.
All the administrative arrangements were straight forward.
We hope we shall be able to come back for another visit.
My partner and I had a wonderful one-week stay in Timber House in May 2009. The house itself is very smart and well-equipped, and the location in Skinidin on Skye is lovely with views over the loch toward Dunvegan and the surrounding countryside. The location is convenient to all activities and sightseeing in northern Skye but a little out of the way for southern Skye attractions, although it is still quite easy to get to the Cuillins. In short, we highly recommend the Timber House for a peaceful and comfortable Skye holiday.
\wonderfully fitted out holiday house, lovely area a perfect place to stop on the beautiful island of Skye
We had a wonderful time at the Timber House at Skinidin. The house was immaculate, really comfortable, with lovely bed linen on made beds which was fantastic, and the housekeeper had left us a bottle of wine, biscuits and fruit which were very much appreciated. We have rented many cottages over the years and this was definately the best we have found.
