Number 10

Isle of Skye

An inspired and inspiring escape by the sea. Find deep comfort and daring design in the top-notch apartment; step out to wild Skye


1 bedroom


Sleeps 2


The concept: dramatic sophistication in wild nature. The scene: open croftland fringed by Loch Dunvegan’s bays and rugged cliffs, traversed by a single track to the sea. The views, peace, privacy and welcome from artist Diana and percussionist Alan are magnificent. A modern extension to the couple’s traditional crofthouse, the apartment combines dramatic design with urban comforts โ€“ rugs to drown your feet, a wood stove, a top-notch kitchen. Huge windows overlook the sea, glam chandeliers sparkle, and a black leather sofa sits with Diana’s handmade furniture. In the bedroom: stained-glass windows, a giant master bed and a bath big enough for two. If you want to dip your toes even nearer the sea, the ‘hide’ is a small cabin tucked into the hillside below and bursting with style and comfort: find Skye weavers soft furnishings, Lloyd Loom armchairs, reclining chairs for sea gazing, a cosy wood-burner, soft blankets and cushions and an outdoor table for dreamy barbecues. Return from windswept walks, kick off your shoes and watch cinematic views pan slowly over the waves from Dunvegan’s Coral Beach to the Outer Hebrides.

No.10 is a superb get away from it all hideaway. The welcome we received from Diana and Alan could not have been more warm. The accommodation is beautiful and very well equipped. Lovely relaxed evenings spent enjoying the view of Loch Dunvegan through the sitting room's huge window, kept very cosy by the log burner. An excellent base from which we visited the Talisker distillery, walked in the Cuillins, explored the coast and dined at the excellent Three Chimneys Restaurant. A brilliant holiday.


Our stay was simply the ultimate self catering experience. A beautiful , cleverly designed cottage in a stunning setting. We lacked nothing including the warmest welcome from Diana and Alan and such helpful advice whenever it was needed .

  • Information for all levels, from the intrepid walker to the afternoon stroller. Ordinance survey maps for the whole island available at Number Ten. A favourite walk is to The Coral beach, suitable for most levels of walkers., clear blue sea, white Coral.
  • Boat hire for small parties or individuals to take you to seabird nesting sites while viewing whales and dolphins. Or be dropped off on a small island for the day.
  • Finally we have to mention Jann's cake shop, a chocolate lover's paradise twenty minutes away. Amazing pastries plus a variety of breads, one of which is waiting for our guests on arrival - just one of the items in our extensive welcome pack.
