Welcome to Falcon's Cliff!

The interior of Falcon's Cliff

Falcon's cliff, Dornie, is the perfect cliff top base for your holiday with breathtaking views over the historic Eilean Donan Castle (home of the Clan MacRae), the Cuillin mountain range on the Isle of Skye and stunning local Highland scenery of mountains and lochs of Lochalsh and Kintail.

The modern superbly equipped accommodation is attached to a traditional house located above the picturesque village of Dornie. The scenic village has four shops, a post office, two pubs and a hotel which provides delicious freshly caught sea food and local produce.

Picturesque Dornie Village

The village of Dornie is located 9 miles from the Skye bridge and the Isle of Skye. Dornie is also 15 miles from the National Trust village of Plockton and it's beautiful harbour. The village of Glenelg with it's ancient brochs is 20 miles away over the breathtaking Ratagan pass.

The castle at sunset

The cottage is ideally situated for walking, hillwalking, climbing, horse-riding, bird watching, photography, fishing, golf, nature excursions, genealogy and for fans of the film "Highlander". A wooden post in our garden overlooking the castle was used as a gallows in the film.

The sitting room area

The extraordinary range of habitats from deep marine to mountain tops within a relatively small area is one of the most fascinating aspects of the scenery and wildlife of the Highlands. With luck you may see an otter, golden eagle or a rare sea eagle.

If you take a boat trip you may be fortunate and see marine creatures such as porpoises, dolphins, basking sharks or minke whales in the waters around Dornie and Skye.

Falcon's Cliff is named after the peregrine falcons that nest near the house and are usually seen hunting over the garden. This year we were also lucky to have a pair of golden eagles nesting nearby and they are often soaring overhead or hunting for rabbits on the hillside.
