About this home

Drumgarry is set within a private, secluded woodland. The house commands breathtaking views across the sea towards the Knoydart hills and mountains beyond. The stunning location is complimented by the beautiful, natural gardens surrounding the house.


The house is spacious, sleeping up to 6 people. With master, superking bedroom, bunk room and a 3rd bedroom which can be used flexibly as either 2 singles or as an additional superking. The huge kitchen/ dining room is very well equipped and looks out across the garden to the rear. The living room with real fire, features large french windows opening onto a large deck and seating area, perfectly positioned to take in the gorgeous scenery and views. The house also has 2 bathrooms, one with shower, one with bath and shower.



Drumgarry is in the small township of Ardvasar on the southern tip of the island. There is a pub and restaurant within the hotel which sits at the foot of the house's drive, just 1 minutes walk away and serving excellent food; there are also many other excellent restaurants in the area. There is a local shop 5 mins drive away (but it's also a beautiful 15 minute walk), and there's a large supermarket in the next main town of Broadford.



Being located on Skye, there is access to the many places of interest there such as the Cuillin mountains, fairy pools, dinosaur fossils, clan castles and distilleries, not to mention the Old Man of Storr, black and white coral beaches and the quiraing. Tours for dolphin and whale watching and other water-based activities can also be booked nearby. The house itself is within walking distance of the ferry terminal which links with Mallaig on the mainland, the town where the Harry Potter train terminates. This also allows for access to mainland destinations such as Camusdarach beach and the Silver Sands of Morar. Ferry routes to the various, beautiful, nearby islands and beyond also depart from Mallaig.

    As promised and more

    Drumgarry was comfortable, easy to live in and even serene for our party of 5. Kyle's directions and advice were spot on. I'm already plotting my next visit.

    Great stay in a great location!

    We had a great time staying at Kyle's property for a couple of nights in October 2020. The house was spotless, spacious and a perfect location for exploring the island. Highly recommended!

    Disappointing

    The property had nice views. But it did not match our expectations and was not up to the standard we have come to expect for the prices charged. A couple of examples - we had concerns regarding the poor heating unless you wanted to light a fire in the lounge, here was no heating in any of the rest of the property unless you moved a couple of mobile oil heaters from room to room and these were dirty. The hairdryer had a burnt casing and would have been dangerous to use, no bathmat in the shower room. Overall it did not give the feel of a well appointed cottage more like accommodation for 'students'.

    Great views

    Just home from a fabulous holiday. This house was great, it wasn’t in any of the big towns so was quiet but had the hotel/pub just at the bottom of the drive so didn’t feel too secluded. The kitchen is massive and has everything you could need.the beds were comfy. Took me a couple of goes to get the fire built but was really cosy when it was built. The only thing I can suggest as an improvement is a hand rail on the stairs My mum doesn’t have the best mobility which is why we looked for a bungalow and she did struggle on the step into the house. (Thankfully she could just manage the back door but couldn’t manage the front)

    Really great holiday home

    We stayed in the property for 4 nights / 5 days and had everything you could need. The house is beautifully decorated, set in serene surroundings and beautiful views of the sea. The owner Kyle was so helpful when I had questions and got back to me promptly. It is a wonderful property and I would highly recommend to anyone planning to visit Skye. The owner has put a lot of thought and care into the furnishings and layout of the property. It is extremely cosy and feels like home. We had a lovely evening on the patio using the fire pit eating lamb kebabs, and we loved the peace and quiet of the property in its very private location. The property sits alone in the back drop of stunning scenery. We didn't have particularly good weather and so staying in such a lovely home made a big difference. I particularly loved the gardens. Well done to the owner for making it such a fantastic holiday home. We loved it !!!

    Perfect

    Drumgarry was amazing and we will be going back there one day. It’s private, spacious, clean and has a well stocked kitchen for those that like to cook. The view across the water were stunning and a great thing to sit and watch in the evening or wake up to in the morning.

    Amazing stay in Drumgarry !

    We spent 8 amazing days in Drumgarry with our 2 children and we loved it ! The house is very confortable and very well decorated. The view from the house is just wonderful and the place is very peaceful. Not far away from the ferry, the house is very easy to reach and it's a good starting point for many hikes around. Fortunately we had a very good weather and we were able to swim at the beautiful Point of Sleat ! We strongly recommend this house and all it offers in Skye's island which is a paradise for nature lovers. Many thanks to Kyle who was very available and friendly for our requests. Anne, Bruno and the kids.
