Kintillo Pet-Friendly Cottage Self-Catering

Holiday home
This recently decorated property is located in the hamlet of Holmisdale, 8 miles from Dunvegan and boasts 1 double bedroom, 1 twin bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and dining area and a spacious living room. This old country house is positioned in a quiet spot on a green hillside so there are clear views of the beautiful Scottish landscape to be had from all of the windows in this property. The house has been furnished in an inoffensive way in pale tones of cream and blue and the kitchen has all the modern appliances you'd expect to see in any home.

The village itself is home to various different styles of buildings some of which are old stone cottages and farmhouses and some of which are modern recently built properties. There are lots of well-stocked shops in the vicinity and there are plenty of nice hotels to stop by at and have a drink. Popular tourist attractions like the Dunvegan Castle and a bridge that's rumoured to be home to several fairies are quick and easy to get to from Dunvegan village and there's also the Cuillin Mountains near by. The Cuillin Mountains are well known amongst the rock climbing community as one of the top climbing spots in Britain.

From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has someof Britain's best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.

Self-Catering Reviews

Lovely, spacious cottage, beautiful location (very remote).. Very well equipped (much appreciate there being some basic cupboard supplies as well as washing powder and tin foil -which are often lacking) and comfortable as well as clean. The owner was very accommodating regarding checking in and out and the bottle of wine a lovely touch. The only slight quibble would be the wording of the location description it reads as if there is a restaurant a short walk away but there is just a (licenced) cafe which closes at 4. But the village is actually quite bustling including a lovely local shop, and the cafe is good too. Lovely to really get away from it all for a few days. Recommend Dunvegan taxi, Donda is very helpful (and quick!). Also the Old school restaurant in Dunvegan.

We had a lovely stay in Kintillo cottage.. It is very rural, without WiFi and phone signal. There are plentiful sheep for neighbours roaming freely on the roadside, made for some comical journeys. The cottage had absolutely everything we needed for a weeks stay, including a well equipped kitchen. I’d recommend taking some DVDs for a wet evening (there’s also a VCR if anyone still owns them). There were some lovely walks nearby in the countryside and a quaint little bay 10-15 minutes walk away where we watched salmon jumping out the water. A nice place to switch off from the outside world for a week.

The coordinates provided are not accurate.. we ended up a few hundred meters away but gladly found some really nice neighbors who could point us in the right direction.

Our holiday was thoroughly enjoyed due to the location & breathtaking scenery, it was in a quiet location yet near enough to access places of interest , the cottage was delightful , clean & so very comfortable, So glad we came across Sykes cottages, on our arrival we were greeted by a lovely bottle of wine from the owners, who made sure we had everything we needed by contacting us & let us know should we need anything else we were just to let them know, cannot fault anything about our holiday cottage

I don't know why I did not receive the mails on instructions about how to get the Keys.. Mobile donot work properly in this area so I phone several times before success. I'm very unhappy about payment. It was done twice on my credit card. Even if cancel is done, the currency fees have been on MY SIDE. This is unacceptable Booking must reimburse these fees.

Main bedroom window didn’t open and ransom smell in porch..

We had such a fab week on the Isle of Skye.. The cottage was homely and large enough for the two of us. We were blessed with warm sunshine all week and we think the cottage would benefit from tables and chairs outside to enjoy our meals in the beautiful surrounding countryside. Nevertheless, this is a minor niggle. Its so peaceful! All you can hear are cuckoos and lambs. I would recommend Kintillo as a great base for holidays, nearby shop sells everything. We will definately return.
Mr Matthews

Lovely, warm and comfortable, very well kitted out cottage in an beautiful very quiet location.. A perfect base for people who love to get a way. Would happily return. Tip: local shop/cafe doesn’t open until 11am. Stocks everything but you have to buy breakfast provisions the day before!

You want to get away from it all? Then this is the place to go. Some people don't know what a treat it is to be away from the internet, FB etc etc. Set in a stunning location in Glendale, Skye, it was so peaceful, tranquil and any other verb you can think of to describe quiet (except for the local sheep who set to serenading me one morning......). There's a wee general store 5 minutes down the road that appears to sell everything; if you feel "web starved" then there's the Cafe Lephin across the road from the Gen Store that offers free WiFi or the Glendale Hall. Kintillo is very well equipped, clean and spacious. The cottage is friendly to responsible dog owners, we took our Springer, Mika, and had him on the leash most of the time which is no problem. Once you get "out and about" there will be opportunities to let your dog run fairly free. Just be extra vigilant and observe the countryside common sense rules. A car is certainly needed to get around though there is the Skye bus service which can whizz you to places of interest; car needed to visit the Fair Pools though. The owner, Anne, sent a great e-mail to us with contact details, some of the local rules, local information etc. I had occasion to phone Anne for something or other and she was very pleasant, welcoming and courteous to a fault. Beware the potholes!! I mean it!

Excellent property set in a beautiful glen close to the sea.. Skye is a great place to walk and explore.

It was the most beautiful house we ever rented so far in Scotland.. Stunning views with every weather you can imagine. The Whisky-Cabinet has been a very surprising special! We did not miss anything at all!

Sadly, it hardly stopped raining for the whole week! However, as our cottage was comfortable and warm, it was an inviting place to return to after another wet walk!
Mrs Brown

Kintillo was wonderful, we were surrounded by such beautiful countryside and spring lambs, with the cuckoo calling in the distance. A lovely home from home with great attention to detail and the good quality TV was a bonus.
Mr Carhart

Beautiful location, an immaculate cottage which was very comfortable.
Mr Vaughan
March 2016
Very remote cottage which is what we really wanted. Fantastic views from the front door. Cottage was well stocked with everything we needed and lovely and clean. Scenery in Skye is unbelievable. My wife who is a photographer had an absolute blast. Great few days away
October 2015
We recently came to the Isle of Skye and stayed at Kintillo Cottage for 7 nights. The cottage is in Glendale, a quiet and picturesque village just outside Dunvegan. The view from the cottage is picturesque with views of the surrounding hills and sheep roaming freely. There are no cottages in front of you so there is a lovely feeling of peace and being somewhere remote and almost untouched. The cottage has a very spacious and well equipped kitchen with all the pots and herbs you would need, plus the basic essentials to get you started. I even baked a cake! The living room is very comfy with plenty of seating and a large flat screen tv. There are two bedrooms, 1 large double and 1 smaller room with 2 single beds. The cottage is very clean and well decorated. It looks modern but homely. We really enjoyed our stay and it was a great base to explore the island and nearby Raasay. Other amenities close by include village shop/post office, a couple of cafes, plenty of craft/galleries and it's a short drive from the Michelin star 'Three Chinneys' restaurant. I would definitely recommend this cottage. We had a wonderful stay.
Mrs Lynch

Excellent accommodation in a beautiful part of Skye. Had everything you could have needed! There was lots of information on tourist attractions/walks in the area. Had a great relaxing week and would definitely recommend.
Mr Fairley

Kintillo is a serene cottage is a peaceful setting. Ideal if you are looking for some down time away from the daily hustle and bustle. My wife and I enjoyed the peace and quiet and our only regret was that we were only there for 3 nights rather than the full week. The cottage was beautifully presented and felt very homely, there was plenty of space inside. It was 15mins away from Dunvegan and 45mins from Portree - you aren't too far away from amenities (there is a local shop in Glendale as well). Someone has taken the liberty of printing out a great selection of local walks in the cottage, which are great if you are looking to get outdoors and in the fresh air. Would definitely rent again if back in the area.
Mr Schenk

When we decided to go to Skye Duirinish and booked Kintillo we did not expect a cottage like that. It was a perfect base for exploring the north of Skye - especially to make quick visits to the lighthouse. And we had the promised sheep in the morning - not too early of course - great stay.
Miss Lomax

We loved the location of the property, it was peaceful and quiet. The local residents were really friendly, especially in the shop and the information provided by the owners beforehand was really useful. Brilliant holiday.
Miss Montano

The cottage was wonderful! We felt very at home and were sad when it came time to leave.
Mr Grubb
October 2013
The cottage was spotless, it was also lovely and warm. Glendale itself was a great location, with plenty of walks and places to visit nearby. Will certainly keep this cottage in mind for future breaks. Five stars from me.
October 2013
A fantastic cottage in a lovely quiet part of skye, great base to explore the island. To many places to itemise but the quiraing,the old man of storr,and the cuillin hills are a must.
Mrs Nicholls
August 2013
The cottage was cosy, comfortable and clean. The area was peaceful. Lots of interesting places to visit by car and on foot. People are very friendly. Welcoming staff at the Red Roof Cafe in Glendale. Portree is lovely, as are the castle grounds at Dunvegan and Armadale.
Mr Sloan
June 2013
The accommodation and the area that it is located in provided just what we needed.
June 2013
Stayed in K in the last week in May and were lucky with the weather. I fully recommend the cottage which is modern inside, extremely well equipped with everything you could possibly need - literally a home from home. The central heating is spot on as is the variety of cutlery and crockery all of which is spotless. The view across the river is beautiful and the location is good for touring the whole island. Loved it and will book again.
September 2012
Kintillo is an ideal base for an enjoyable holiday. A true home from home, this cottage has everything you need. Situated in an great location, remote enough for that 'get away from it all' feeling, but a 5-10 minute walk away from the local village shop which was well stocked. Great base to come back to after a long day out exploring the local walks. Bottle of wine on arrival is a lovely touch. Will certainly be back.
July 2012
The cottage was a great base for the North East and West of Skye, plenty to see and do. Fabulous landscape - a very magical place.
Mrs Thornton
July 2012
I absolutely loved my holiday. The location of the cottage was so beautiful and peaceful but there was enough 'scintillation' nearby not to feel too isolated. The cottage itself was cosy, homely, obviously well loved but so super clean and neutral enough we felt we could make it ours for the week. We felt a tiny bit guilty even watching the deluxe flat screen once in a while with such incredible nature outside, but it was a holiday after all!
Mrs Hutcheson

Ideal if you want a quiet holiday away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Wonderful.

June 2012
We had the most incredible time here. The cottage is so perfect as a holiday rental...neutral enough decor that it feels calm, but with just a few small touches to make it feel very homely and cozy and it's obviously very loved. Being teetotal, we were left some fizzy drinks instead of the usual bottle of wine, which felt unbelievably welcoming after a long day's journey from London. The cottage was impeccably clean, the heating is straightforward to understand, there's a deluxe flat screen tv with DVD player, a fantastic power shower but also a bath if you need a soak after a long walk plus a dishwasher, washing machine and dryer (although we dried our clothes on the line and they smelt so good afterwards). Also it's dog-friendly, which is important if you are a dog owner who likes to take your dog on holiday with you! The kitchen was well stocked and we had local oysters and scallops one night from the oyster place just beyond the Talisker distillery. They were delicious and such a treat, but very reasonably priced compared to eating them in a restaurant. As it was summer, the days were very long, but we both slept like kings as the bedroom has good blackout blinds and it's so deeply peaceful there. The cottage is situated on the outskirts a lovely little village called Glendale. The views are uplifting and you can see the sea quite close by, and it's about a 10 min walk away. Willie Campbell the owner advised me to stock up in a supermarket beforehand so we did that, but actually the co-op in Portree isn't too far away. Also Glendale is blessed with the excellent RedRoof cafe which serves beautiful lunches and tempting baked goods and their coffee is obviously sourced by people who wouldn't settle for anything less than an excellent cup of coffee. It ended up being somewhere we went a lot! We also had a meal at the Three Chimneys which was, as expected from a Michelin starred restaurant, very sophisticated food. The holiday was just what I needed and I felt completely different when I came back to London. The beauty of Skye is phenomenal and it's hard not to feel affected by it on a profound level. Kintillo was a wonderful base to experience Skye and I hope to return there as soon as possible.

If you are looking for a complete holiday then this is it. Finding a holiday that allows you to relax whilst still entertaining 2 active teeenagers is not easy. Skye has it all, Fishing, walking scenery, castles, dining etc and to enjoy all this Kintillo is the ideal setting. We had lovely weather for the week and even the feared midges didn't bother us.
September 2011
the house was excellant the children loved the freedom and the view . A great base to see everthing around and pleanty to do if you wish or just relaxing

The cottage was located in a peaceful place and was very quiet at night! The cottage was well equipped and was very comfortable. The central heating was effective so we were warm when it snowed! Skye was excellent for walking and we were near lots of good walks. There was a local shop and nice evening walks in the area. It was nice that the owner had left us a bottle of wine and that there were basic things like salt. The cottage was very spacious.

We've been travelled to the Isle of Skye for several times and love this place. The cottage is situated on a beautiful hillside and inside you find everything you need. A lovely place to stay!

The cottage was very well appointed with all mod cons. It was a true haven with many although quiet, very beautiful spots to visit. Not too far from The Three Chimneys restaurant,which although expensive offered superb food. The whole stay in this beautiful part of Skye was very relaxing and we were blessed with unusually good weather which added to the enjoyment of our stay. We have no qualms at all about returning here in the future!

The welcome pack was well thought out and thorough, we followed some of the recommendations for walks and we were plesently suprised. A good selection of relevant local guide books, which help plan our days.
