Overview

Accessed by a short Estate road it is semi-detached from North Cottage and enjoys views over a field to the water and the mountains of Skye beyond.

Inside it is a bright and sunny cottage which has been carefully refurbished and is simply but very comfortably furnished. The sitting room has comfortable seating around its welcoming open fire that keeps it very cosy and is ideal for snuggling up on cooler evenings.

The smart, modern kitchen is spacious and well-equipped. It is conveniently open plan to the dining area with windows at either end that increase the feeling of light and space. Also on this level is the family bathroom.

Upstairs there are two attractive bedrooms, a double and a twin, that are both full of character, with coombed ceilings and dormer windows.

Outside there is parking right at the door. To the front of the cottage is a pleasant and good-sized enclosed grass garden (with furniture), which has uninterrupted views of the Sound and the hills beyond.

Map & Local

The Estate stretches many miles along the shores of The Sound of Sleat opposite the southern end of the Isle of Skye and faces west across 3 miles of sea towards the dramatic peaks of The Cuillin Mountains on Skye and south to the Islands of Eigg, Rhum and Muck.

The nearby village of Glenelg has a hotel/restaurant, PO and well-stocked general store.

There is magnificent scenery on a grand scale herer with 3,000 foot mountains all round about. There are woodlands, a spectacular waterfall into the shallow River Glenbeag and two Pictish brochs to explore, as well as wonderful walks and masses of quiet spots with stunning views to picnic in.

The coast is mainly rugged but at Arnisdale and Sandaig Bay there are sandy/light-shingle beaches and it was at Sandaig Bay that Gavin Maxwell, author of 'Ring of Bright Water', spent 20 years in a lonely cottage on the shore and wrote vividly of his life with the otters and other animals.

The Isle of Skye is very easily accessed by the toll-free bridge and once there you have a whole multitude of museums, restaurants and tourist attractions of all kinds to visit.

Please note: while we make every effort to be as accurate as possible, the actual position of the cottage indicated on the map above and the proximity of the amenities in the Local Info section cannot be guaranteed to be precise and should be used as a guide only.
