There are a variety of books and maps on the area as well as a selection of reading material for all ages. We have included a selection of DVD's, board games and toys to cater for all ages.

The Scotland region

Dunvegan (Gaelic: Dùn Bheagain) is a town on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. It is famous for Dunvegan Castle, seat of the chief of Clan MacLeod. It is also the hometown of Celtic fusion band Peatbog Faeries.

In The Norse Influence on Gaelic Scotland (1910), George Henderson suggests that the name Dùn Bheagain derives from Old Gaelic Dùn Bheccáin ([the] fort of Beccán), Beccán being a Gaelic personal name. Dùn Bheagain would not mean 'little fort' as this would be Dùn Beag in Gaelic.

The village is now home to 4 decent sized hotels/B&B's, a bakery, a restaurant, two general stores, 1 filling station, a garage, a gun shop, a fishing store and a fruit and vegetable shop. It also has a recycling point and other small facilities. The Giant MacAskill Museum, which celebrates the life of Angus Mòr MacAskill was established in 1989 and is managed by Peter MacAskill, father of the street trials cycle rider Danny MacAskill.

Dunvegan

Dunvegan sits on the shores of the large 'Loch Dunvegan' and the Old School Restaurant in the village is widely known for its freshly caught fish from the loch itself.

Dunvegan Castle, home of the clan Macleod for over 800 years is just a 10 minute stroll away.

“Excellent all round”

Reviewed 28 Oct 2012

We spent a great 4 nights at the house. It is easy to find, parking is good, and the house itself is immaculate - beuatifully maintained, and the welcome pack of mild & bread and coffee and shortbread - along with a few tots of Talisker was a lovely touch. Everything was straightforward, and all the machines - the satellite TV, the dishwasher/washing machine etc very easy to use. Beds were very comfortable. Helynn was a very good host, throughout the booking and the stay, making it all very easy. Minor issues - The shower was a bit weak, and the instructions for getting the wifi weren't there, and we couldn't get into the games room. No. 2 is a fantastic base to see the delights of Skye - a trip to the lighthouse at Neist is worth it, and the coral beach past Dunvegan castle is very beautiful.
