We arrived late tired and cold. And what a pleasant surprise to find a warm and very clean cottage which we felt at home immediately. Fabulous bathroom and shower. Defiantly recommend staying here, and a bonus right next door to a fab restaurant.

About the neighbourhood
Glendale is a tiny village in the north-west of Skye. The views are dominated by the great glen and the mighty MacLeod's tables. In the direct vicinity you will find Dunvegan Castle and castle gardens, the seat of the famous clan MacLeod, the Coral Beaches, Neist Point and its typical lighthouse and Orbost beach.

The property is a 5 minute drive from the famous Three Chimneys Restaurant.

Local shops and restaurants are available in both Glendale and Dunvegan. The island capital Portree is 25 miles, roughly 40 minutes by car.
Getting around
In order to get to see the island, a car is recommended. In case you're travelling via Inverness airport, you can arrange for a hire car there. Other airports like Glasgow and Edinburgh also provide car rental services.
