Karinya is in a fantastic location for visiting Skye. Out of the hustle of Portree, it sits with a view toward the Red and Black Cuillin Hills.
There is a brand new sauna downstairs, a fire in the living room and a well thought out layout with a BBQ available on request outside.
Located 15 minutes from the Talisker distillery and about 20 minutes drive from the Fairy Pools on the main circular road around the north end of the island. Only 2.5 miles from the ever popular Sligachan, which is a central point for embarking on any walk or expedition in the Cuillin Hills.
Ideal for your exploration of Skye and venturing into the mountains, or indeed to get away from normal life.
We are delighted to add Karinya to what we can offer here on Skye.

Great stay on Skye
Fantastic place for visiting Skye. We didn’t want to leave. The house is perfect for a base while walking, mountaineering or visiting the Fairy pools... especially as you can take a sauna after a day in the hills or make a nice roaring fire (remember that Skye is a destination if you want something more remote and beautiful ...so don’t go looking for a shopping centre if you want to take your holidays there - perfect for us). It was immaculately clean too. I’ve stayed in a lot of places all over the world and this is in my top 10 - hope to stay again some time soon. Thanks a million.August 2020

Great place to stay
Exceeded expectations. Spacious. Everything so clean, equipped and finished to a high standard. Most important, the beds were so comfortable with lightweight but warm duvets. The log burner was cosy on a rainy day. Location great, lovely to sit in the well placed chairs to look out at the hills and waterfall. Would definitely go back.October 2020

Beautiful holiday home on Skye
Fully equipped home, warm, bright and comfortable. My friends and I used it as a base to go on hiking trips around Skye. Perfectly located, not too far from portree, but tucked away that we felt isolated enough - a huge plus given that we were hoping to escape the city.May 2021

We stayed here in November which is really cold, wet and windy but the place kept us very warm, especially with the sauna. Bedrooms: Beds were comfy and warm and plenty of storage for all your clothes for a good while, rooms were also equipped with hairdryers and the top floor master bedroom was fitted with a ceiling fan incase you got too warm. The upstairs bathroom was great really enjoyed the deep bathtub Theres also a twin bedroom upstairs which we never really used apart from one night this room is alot cooler. Downstairs bedroom with its own bathroom also was pretty nice, the shower has a full body function but you cant use it at the same time as the shower head. The main bathroom was where the sauna is located the sauna was amazing and is the highlight of this property we were in it almost every day of our stay, the shower in the main bathroom however we couldn't get it to turn on because the water dial was stuck. The livingroom/Dining room was very spacious the sofa however is in parts and wasnt connected together so parts of it would slide away from each other but it was comfy nonetheless, this room also has a fireplace with plenty of wood and firestarters provided although we never used it as the house was pretty warm as is, the dinning room was great pretty big table for 6 people. The kitchen has everything you need apart from there was no bin bags provided so id recommend bringing your own theres also Portree shops to get supplies its a 20 min drive. Other than that everything worked as is theres even a dishwasher to make life easier. Utility room was great too has a washing machine, dryer, iron, hoovers and mops and also has a backdoor which was useful to us as we brought our own little hot tub which we sat out the back where theres a hose and power supply on the outside. Garden is a pretty decent size with benches, BBQ in the shed and plenty of space to park cars again round the back was great to place your own hot tub like a lazy spa.November 2021

Great Home on Skye
Great stay on Skye, the house is wonderful, has everything you would want and is in a great location. A bit hard to find at night, just need to drive slow and you will see it.January 2022

Well needed rejuvenation away from busy life’s and the city life. Beautiful space-well maintained with a fire when it’s blowing a Gail. My little family loved everything about the home as well as the hiking all around. Thank you. Highly appreciated. The Weiler/Lumsden family.March 2022

What a lovely cottage. Everything was excellent from the standard of the property and it's contents to the location. We loved that we were not in a busy place and loved the surrounding wildness right at the doorstep. This was a family celebration and we all had a super time and mainly due to where we stayed - it had everything anyone could need and really appreciated the bottle of wine left, we used it to toast the 2 birthdays we were celebrating. I would highly recommend this property and it will be the first to book should we visit Skye in the near future. Thanks so much for it all. Marion GunnMarch 2022

Perfect family retreat
We reserved this as a break from the big city. Our oldest daughter is at University in Aberdeen so we came from the US to visit her. We stayed at Karinya for her 21st birthday. Lots of hiking, exploring and just being together outside - it was time for a break from our Minnesota winter. This property is beautiful, fully stocked. Beds were very comfortable, kitchen perfect for family dinners - if coming from the south/east, shop before you get here - if not, the Co-op in Portree is good enough! If visiting or dining in Portree, check hours ahead of time - shops tend to close very early. Loved it here and would come back in a heartbeat!! THANKS BEN!!April 2022

Our stay in Karinya Crossal Cottage.
Excellent stay in a cosy house. We were 3 couples without children. Very clean and comfortable. The only negative point was the noise from the road just under with big traffic especially the week-end.May 2022

Wonderful, spacious and spot home-away-from-home on Skye
Myself, husband and 82-year-old mum spent four days here in June. With the downstairs bedroom en suite, in addition to a second double upstairs, this was perfect for us, with Mum able to sleep downstairs and avoid any stairs. The house was spotless and well-presented with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. I would say the non-stick frying pan perhaps needs replacing to make scrambled eggs less of a chore. We also found the location to be centrally situated with a good range of restaurants within fairly easy reach. Our favourite restaurant was The Old School in Duvegan and fyi there is a fab bakery across the road (the bakery closes at 2pm). Portree has a big Co-Op for groceries but we shopped before travelling to Skye.June 2022

Immaculate modern house w stunning views on quiet road
Spacious modern house off the busy roads but still conveniently close to Portree and easy route to Dunvegan. Very polite and professional management contact. Plenty of room for family of four. Super-nice showers, laundry room, kitchen, and nice extra touch of a sauna after a hike. And incredible views right out the front door.June 2022
