There’s a rare beauty here: open croftland fringed by Loch Dunvegan’s bays (a single track leads you to the sea) and rugged cliffs with views over Coral Beach to the Outer Hebrides. Glimpse eagles, deer, dolphins and otters on windswept walks in all directions.
Number 10 is a modern extension to Diana and Alan’s traditional crofthouse and studio but you have your own entrance and garden so feel nicely private. Cook the trout you’ve caught that day on your Ghillie Tour in the top-notch kitchen or snuggle up near the wood stove with a wee dram picked up from Talisker Distillery, a 40-minute drive.
If you want to dip your toes even nearer the sea, the ‘hide’ is a small cabin tucked into the hillside. It’s fun to fire up the barbecue but there’s no need to cook if you’re not in the mood, there’s an excellent eatery a 10-minute drive away and it’s only 15 miles to Michael Smith’s Michelin star restaurant in Waternish.
