“Even better than the photos!”
Reviewed April 30, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

What a great place to stay - modern, clean, cosy(wood burner), amazing location and everything we needed and more. All mod cons, good range of books and maps and kitchen had everything we could want including the basics and a bottle of wine :)
Location lovely. Drumbuie is a beautiful little crofting community with interesting walks - it takes only 5-10 minutes to get to the beach to see scenic views over Loch Carron (make sure you see the sun setting here).
Easy to get to Skye, Loch Maree and Torridon. We left the mist of Edinburgh behind and enjoyed the sunny coral beaches on Skye instead, although I'm sure it's not always like that...
Heather ( housekeeper) and Andy very easy to get in touch with if you have any questions. Responses are so quick - we were so impressed. Thank you for such a comfortable stay in such a convenient and pretty location. Maybe the comfiest bed ever?! Would love to come back! Jane and Simon

We totally enjoyed our stay at Nanyuki, everything we needed was available. The silence of the night and enjoyable local walks were great. We explored further afield, always glad to return to such a comfortable cottage. Would highly recommend Nanyuki.

“Fantastic holiday house with stunning views on the north west coast”

We have stayed at Nanyuki 5 or 6 times now- and will keep going back! It's the perfect place to stay on the northwest coast, the house is so comfortable and well equipped and the location is unbeatable. Just a short walk down to the beach for fantastic views over the mountains and across to Skye. A short distance from Kyle and the shops- but in a very peaceful and rural spot. There's an endless choice of outdoor activities, both in the surrounding area on the mainland or on Skye which is just a short drive away. I can't recommend it enough!

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed September 7, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My husband and I stayed here for several days. It is one of the most well equipped vacation rentals we've ever stayed in. Comfortable, clean, great beds, wifi and quite the tv channel selection for those quiet days! I'd stay here again in a heartbeat. We also had plenty of highland bovine neighbors. Calves too! Amazing!

“Wish we'd stayed longer!”

We loved Nanyuki and would highly recommend it! It was spacious, clean, comfortable, well equipped, well furnished and incredibly well maintained. It had everything we needed for a fantastic self catering vacation! Beautifully equipped kitchen with lots of new crockery, cutlery, cooking utensils, etc. Great shower, lots of storage space, comfortable beds and sofas. Terrific TV reception! Bookcases lined with DVD's, games, novels, and an incredible collection of local travel/hiking/history books and materials that helped us plan our outings and hikes. It was a perfect location to explore the surrounding area and a very short distance to Skye. The one thing we would have enjoyed was a garden/patio area that would have allowed us to eat/relax outside the cottage. The village is incredibly quiet and peaceful; you look out the window in the morning and see the sheep roaming around outside the cottage...it was wonderful! We stayed for four nights and wished we'd stayed longer. Drumbuie itself is a tiny village with no amenities such as a pub or store, so be prepared to drive the short distance to Kyle of Lochalsh for groceries and such. However, the quiet of Drumbuie makes Nanyuki all the more special as a place to get away from it all. There is a short, but scenic coastal trail leading from the village; makes for a nice after dinner meander. The owner, Andy, was a pleasure to correspond with and the housekeeper, Heather, greeted us at the cottage and offered great suggestions for hikes, restaurants and pubs (The Plockton Shores restaurant is well worth a visit...thank you for the recommendation, Heather!). We had a fantastic time at Nanyuki and hope to return one day soon!
