Seal at Doune

We’re David and Louise and we live here at Doune Bay, Knoydart all year round.  Making your holiday the best it can be isn’t just a job, it’s our way of life.

Doune Bay Lodge is situated in its own cove and looks west across the Sound of Sleat to the magical Isle of Skye and the Cuillin mountain range.

Tucked just 20 metres back from it’s own beach we are totally off grid. The power comes from renewable energy supplied from our solar pv and micro hydro system. 

Recently refurbished, Doune Bay Lodge offers accomodation for up to 12 guests over 5 ensuite bedrooms. The large open plan, living, dining and kitchen area is just perfect for you next self catering holiday here at Doune Bay on the Knoydart Peninsular

Knoydart is known as the last wilderness, but Doune Bay Lodge is a true wilderness lodge. Surrounded by thousands of acres of unspoilt rolling hills, the nearest road is a 20 minute walk and the only sounds you hear come from the wildlife and the ever changing seas.

During the summer season Doune Bay Lodge is available to hire for 6 nights (Sat-Fri), we collect you on our own boat from Mallaig and bring you into our own pier here at Doune. You have the free use of our 8 seater vehicle so you can easily get into Inverie, the main village here on Knoydart. Experience the live music sessions at the community owned Old Forge Pub (the most remote pub on the UK mainland) or the community owned village hall. Pop into our local shop to top up your supplies or have a coffee and a bite to eat at the Knoydart Pottery and tea room. Why not give yourself a break from cooking and book into the Old Forge or The Lookout Restaurant. 

During our winter season we offer 2 and 3 night breaks and you just need to make your own way to Inverie, Knoydart via the main ferry service, Western Isle Cruises From Mallaig. We meet you at the pier in Inverie and bring you to our parking area where we then take a 15 min walk down to Doune Bay Lodge.    

You’re guaranteed a totally unique experience.
