Overview

It is within a five minute walk of the beach and Tarskavaig Point with dramatic views of the rugged Cuillin mountains. The house stands in quarter of an acre of mainly grassed garden. There is a decking area to the front, accessed by patio doors from the dining area, so the wonderful views may be enjoyed when sitting either inside or out.

The internal design is indeed stunning. There is an impressive kitchen-dining area with solid oak wood flooring and a high ceiling with Velux windows to give the maximum amount of natural light. The kitchen is superbly fitted and equipped and there is an additional entrance hall/boot room and WC.

An arch leads through to the sitting room with wood-burning stove. This, with underfloor central heating and double glazing throughout, ensures that the house is a warm and cosy place to return to after a day in the hills or sightseeing. There is also a downstairs double bedroom with en suite double shower.

Stairs from the living area lead to a gallery which provides additional seating with a spectacular outlook to the Isles. Off this are three more bedrooms, the family bath and shower room and a playroom for children.

Map & Local

Sleat is known as the 'Garden of Skye' which, lush and green, is entirely different to the rest of the island.

The traditional crofting community at Tarskavaig is reached by a single track road from the main Armadale - Broadford highway, readily accessible either by the bridge or ferry from the mainland. Rarely indeed will you not find yourself face-to-face with deer as you make your way to the other side of the peninsula.

The coast line on this side is quite stunning, rugged with rocky headlands, beaches and the ruined castle Dun Scaith to explore, all affording great opportunities for waterside picnics, with arguably the best views of the Cuillins on the whole island. Look out for seals here, they are perhaps as common in the water as the deer are on the hills!

Walkers and climbers will hurry off to the Cuillins. For something less strenuous and closer to home, you can take boat trips from Ardvasar (with shops, cafe and hotel) or visit the gardens and visitor centre at Armadale castle. To the north, Broadford is the place to go for supermarket shopping and petrol. Beyond there all the attractions of Skye await - Portree, Dunvegan Castle and the Coral Beaches, the Old Man of Storr and the Quiraing, the golf course and the ferry to Raasay at Sconser - the list goes on.

Sleat is also well off for excellent places to eat. The Hotel at Eilean Iarmain does excellent bar meals and has regular Ceilidh evenings, or for another special evening out, you can visit Lady Claire MacDonald's Michelin Star restaurant at Kinloch Lodge or Toravaig House.

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.
