This was a wonderful place to stay. I was only booked for one night but wanted to stay longer. Great views in a wonderful part of Skye but also wonderful self-contained and really well-appointed double unit. This included a great bath which after a day's cycle was most welcome. Jeni, host, was also really good in providing food and hospitality. Of the five places I stayed on my visit to Skye this was the best.
Great! We stayed here following supper at the 3 Chimneys - it's a brief walk down the road. Jeni was wonderfully welcoming, and provided a rather fabulous cooked breakfast in the morning. The room (the garden room) was very well appointed, and we had a great time.

Not the prettiest or the grandest castle but wow does it make up for this in other ways. Castle tour is so interesting. Gardens are really diverse and beautifully cared for. The greenhouse in the walled garden has a particularly well chosen and looked after plant collection. The boat trip to see the seals is incredible - so close up and the guide was superb - Not to be missed. Overall an excellent great value full day out.
Dunvegan Castle and Gardens makes for a wonderful day out and we loved every minute of it! We did the seal trips: the guide was extremely informative and we loved seeing the seals up close. The gardens were well maintained and absolutely stunning. The castle itself was a great experience. There is plenty of information about the stately home and the history of the MacLeod clan! Overall, a great trip!
