“Fantastic house, warm and cosy with plenty of space for everyone.”
A tiny bit of feedback is that I had asked if there was a dvd player and was told there was, but there isn't! Just so you know if anyone asks you in the future, to save them looking all over the house! It wasn't a problem at all, the kids were happy without watching any films, it was just a bit puzzling as we couldn't find it! No other issues other than that, we had a great week and Mr Macrae couldn't have been more helpful, we had a nice chat on the phone when he called mid-week to check we were getting on ok. Many thanks, Katie

Druidaig Lodge is a traditional, Edwardian sporting lodge, in a stunning location near the Isle of Skye, the Five Sisters of Kintail, Loch Duich and the famous Eilean Donan Castle. The lodge offers spacious self-catering accommodation for up to seventeen people in what must be one of the most popular and beautiful stretches of the west coast of Scotland.
For sheer scenic beauty, Druidaig Lodge is an unbeatable holiday location and a perfect self catering choice for large groups or families, especially if you want to visit castles and tour the Isle of Skye and mainland Scotland, all of which are within easy reach. For those preferring a quiet relaxed holiday, there are five acres of garden grounds that lead down to the loch shore: from here the beautiful mountain backdrop surrounding this most attractive property is absolutely stunning.
Fishing on Loch Duich and in the hill lochs above the house is included in the rental, and there is a private slipway on the loch where you can launch your own boat either for fun sailing or serious sea fishing. Salmon fishing on the River Croe at Kintail is also available. The area is also a haven for walkers, climbers and birdwatchers, and there is no end of possibilities here for enjoying all of these activities.
Please note that the narrow beds on the second floor are most suited to children.

About the location
Kyle of Lochalsh 9 miles.
The picturesque village of Dornie sits amidst the stunning West Highland countryside, just nine miles from the bustling village of Kyle of Lochalsh. The village itself, a walker’s paradise, offers good amenities including a village shop, a local pub and numerous walking and cycling opportunities, with stunning views of the coastline and mountainous regions beyond to be enjoyed. Nearby Kyle of Lochalsh, known as the gateway to the Isle of Skye, offers a range of shops, hotels and restaurants and boasts a busy harbour that plays host to a variety of cargo, fishing and occasional passenger vessels. Nearby Eilean Donan Castle, one of Scotland's most famous and popular sights, is perched at the end of a stone causeway on the shores of Loch Duich, whilst further south is the Glenelg Peninsula, a tranquil backwater, which is beautiful, remote and relatively undiscovered. An easy drive north of Kyle is the charming village of Plockton, famous for its palm trees, yacht-filled bay and the nearby hamlet of Duirinish with Highland cattle which wander the streets! Alternatively, cross the Skye Bridge to Skye itself and explore all that the mystical Isle has to offer.
