Number 16 is a modern house built in the style of a traditional Skye farmhouse. It's uniquely situated on the shoreline of Loch Dunvegan. Sitting in a spacious three-acre plot, it offers a unique spot to visitors: tranquil but not remote. There are spectacular views of wildlife like deer, dolphins, seals, eagles, otters all year round. The property has private access to the beach which offers great opportunities for people wanting to venture out on the loch with their kayaks.
The property is single level with underfloor heating throughout. The decor is modern and bright. The spacious kitchen with dining area overlooks the always changing loch and the outer isles beyond. The kitchen is equipped with all modern conveniences. You will enjoy your breakfast while watching seals having their morning sunbath. The lounge is cosy and comfy and is equipped with a wood burning stove.
There are two bedrooms available to guests. One with a super king size double bed and one with two single beds. Both bedrooms have private en-suite bathrooms with toilet, washing basin and shower. The en-suite of the double room also has a bath. There is a separate toilet in the hallway. The utility room has a washing machine and a tumble dryer.
Close by (a mere 3-minute walk) is the famous Three Chimneys restaurant for excellent local food (lunches and dinner, timely reservations required). Further restaurants and shops can be found in Dunvegan (5 minutes by car) and Glendale (5 minutes by car) and Stein (Michael Smith's Michelin starred restaurant Loch Bay, roughly 20 minutes by car). The island's capital Portree is 25 minutes by car.
Great walks are available in any direction within the direct vicinity of the property: shoreline walks, Macleod Tables, Uiginish point, Neist Point and Coral Beaches to name a few.

Fantastic cottage in an amazing location
Wow, what a stunning spot to spend a week! The view of the loch from the kitchen was amazing, as were the seals that kept us entertained just a few yards away. Cottage was spacious and very comfortable, we loved our stay. So much to enjoy on this beautiful island, but make sure you walk from the cottage along the loch to take in the peace and the wildlife, wonderful. We didn't want to leave!
Number 16 was a great house for our family of 4. Its much bigger than the pictures make it look! Spotlessly clean when we arrived! Great utility room with space for drying boots and waterproofs and plenty of living space for all of us. Views from the kitchen and lounge out to the Loch were wonderful. The house had absolutely everything we needed and was super comfortable. It was really easy at high tide to get our kayaks down to the Loch side for a paddle with the seals! (at little bit harder at low tide but perfectly manageable).
Was bigger than expected pictures dont do it justice. The only objective as other reviews have said the double bed is very hard - but it did not spoil our time there. Saw seals out of lounge window when the tide was in had a regular buzzard catching it s food. A visit to Dunvegan Castle is worth a visit - we also took a drive all around Skye - the waterfalls and scenery are to die for. Would come to Number 16 again
No 16 skinidin is in a truly stunning location.As the light and the weather changes so do the stunning views. The bedrooms are big and spacious. The kitchen has all equipment needed into order to self cater. The lounge also offers exceptional views and light. Compared to other holiday homes we have stayed in we found the lounge furniture functional rather than homely and the second living space had only two small chairs in and a coat rack. It would have been nice for this space to be more comfortable...perhaps housing some games, card, books etc and a pair of binoculars to watch the seals on the rocks in the distance.
