Luxurious, shoreside hideaway on the Isle of Skye with uninterrupted views to the outer isles. Five star accommodation for two which comes with its own private beachfront cabin bolthole. Perfectly summed up by owner Diana, interior designer and artist: We wanted to create something that was as dramatic as the scenery that surrounds.
Number Ten is a romantic retreat for two people a wing attached to the home, studios and gallery of local artists Alan and Diana Mackie. It has its own private entrance and garden, as well as a glorious little cabin bolthole with wood burning stove, right down on the beach. The main property is set just above the shore, with uninterrupted views across Dunvegan Loch to The Coral Beach and the Outer Isles. Interior designer Diana, has created this luxurious space for two people to enjoy.
A beautiful mix of coastal moorland and mountains. Number Ten is set in the middle of a five acre field just above an intimate beach, only frequented by otters and bird life. A perfect area for the walker, historian, bird watcher or just put your feet up and enjoy the stunning uninterrupted views of the Outer Isles. We have the world famous Three Chimneys restaurant just ten minutes away. Plus a wonderful confectioner and a choice of restaurants in the area. Dunvegan Castle is forty minutes away with beautiful award winning gardens. Seal watching boat trips are very popular. Skye offers a huge variety of activities.
A flight to Inverness and then car hire. A three hour drive through breathtaking scenery to Number Ten. We have a bridge across to the Isle of Skye.

The living area features a wood burning stove with a large sofa, perfect to recline on and enjoy the stunning views through the full length windows. As darkness falls, lighting is provided by stunning chandeliers. Even though you are far from the madding crowd, Sky TV, a private phone line and broadband and wireless internet access are all available. The kitchen is fully equipped and will satisfy the most enthusiastic of cooks. A dishwasher and washer dryer are also included. The bedroom has a stunning black glass chandelier for the romantically inclined, and stained glass windows dapple the room with colour. The king-size bed has a custom made, subtly perfumed bedhead fashioned from whisky barrels, and is dressed with sumptuous silks and velvets. The adjoining bathroom has a separate bath and shower, both big enough for two to enjoy! The whole apartment has underfloor heating and deep-piled rugs. Coal and firewood are also supplied.
Parking and a private south facing garden overlooking the sea. It sits in croft land just above the shore, with uninterrupted views across Loch Dunvegan to the Coral Beach and the Outer Hebrides. For Diana, an artist whose seascapes and landscapes are inspired by the ever-changing beauty of this coastline creating a garden on this wild coast was the ultimate challenge.
