An Airidh is a new property situated just a short distance from Dunvegan on the north west part of the island. The property has been equipped and furnished to an extremely high level by the owner, and would make an ideal base for exploring this part of the island.
The property is situated on the one level and consists of a lounge with comfortable sofas, flat screen with freesat, DVD, and a wood burner. The dining kitchen is well equipped and offers direct access through patio doors to the outside decked area, the views of the Cullin range from here are simply spectacular and the decked area is an ideal place to sit and relax and enjoy the sunsets. The property has two bedrooms, a master complete with a beautiful en-suite wet room and a twin bedroom. A family bathroom complete with a bath with shower over completes the facilities. Outside the property has a large garden and a separate patio area.
The main population centre in the area is Dunvegan, the village lies on the east side of the head of Loch Dunvegan, and is just five miles from An Airidh. The village has a small selection of shops, restaurants and cafes and a useful Tourist Information Centre. A mile north of the village is Dunvegan Castle, the castle is the ancestral home of the Clan Macleod, and is open to the general public from April to October. Full of items of historical interest the castle and the gardens make an ideal day out.
Located west of Dunvegan is an area called the Duirinish Peninsula, the area relatively unspoilt is dominated by the flat topped mountains of Healabhal Mor and Healabhal Beag, or the Macleod’s Tables. The area is home to a lot of native wildlife and is a perfect spot for some hill walking, no matter what your ability. Neist Point with its lighthouse is located in the most western part of the peninsula. The views of the lighthouse and the sea cliffs are some of the most impressive in Skye, and the walk to the lighthouse always a memorable experience.

A wonderful Oasis of Calm and a true home from home.
The cottage is lovely. The rooms were tastefully decorated, the bed was very comfortable, the wifi worked well, the temperature inside the cottage was just right and the kitchen was well appointed. The other comments on the website about the wet room are not, with respect, accurate: it is great, easy to use and the water does not go all over the room; it was very good. The cottage is located in a beautiful area with outstanding views all around. Dunvegan is excellent for cake (!) and is only 15 minutes away. If only it had stopped raining, the holiday would have been perfect. We will have to come back next year! Thank you for all the nice little touches.
We stayed at this cottage for a week at the beginning of April. It was very clean and thoughtfully kitted out. The welcome basket was a kind touch and the eggs from the chickens we could see were delicious. In a great position for exploring and walking near and far. Visited some great restaurants and attractions a particular favourite being Skye Weavers. This was a departure for us as we normally choose sunshine holidays but we throughly enjoyed our Scottish home from hom.
We had an excellent 2 weeks in this well equipped, comfortable cottage. The standard of this accommodation is exceptionally high. The cottage is well situated with stunning views. If it's not 5 star rating, it should be!
This cottage is well situated and nicely appointed with just about everything one could wish for. One can see that a great deal of thought has gone into making this a great place to stay. The rooms are all very comfortable and the views are lovely. The welcome basket was very thoughtful and much appreciated. The only very minor points are rather tepid hot water in the shower (the wet room can be mopped down with the mop provided!) and no tongs in the kitchen for cooking!
My girlfriend and I were so comfortable at this lovely cottage.Every detail was thought of and a lovely welcoming basket was provided for us. We had lovely weather too and were able to take advantage of sitting outside on the patio and take in the wonderful Harlosh views.I will most definatley return to this gem.
Our 2nd visit to An Airidh, this time with a friend. We loved it. Excellent welcome pack was a thoughtful touch. The position is wonderful and the facilities very good (though crockery is awkwardly placed). One slight criticism: the en-suite bathroom really is a wet room (!): there is no slope so a brief shower sends water flowing right across the floor (no point in putting down a bath mat!). The only way to get rid of the water was to push it back with one's feet for ages!
We have just spent a wonderful few days in this lovely cottage in Harlosh on Skye. We had stunning morning views of the MacLeod tables and evening views of The Cuillin. An Airidh was ideally situated for exploring Dunvegan and the surrounding area. The cottage itself was immaculate and very well appointed making self catering easy. Thank you.
