Set in a rural location in the crofting township of Kilbride where sheep and cattle roam freely, Braes of Kilbride is a spacious, well-appointed, detached holiday home, which offers an ideal base for a family getaway. It is a short walk to Loch Slapin, a sea loch, and the lovely bay of Camus Malaig, with stunning views of the Small Isles, Blaven and The Cuillin; a range of black, rocky mountains in the distance. From this bay, there is a well-known circular walk, which passes through the deserted villages of Borreraig and Suishnish. These villages were abandoned during the Highland Clearances. High Pasture Cave is also within walking distance from Braes of Kilbride.
The area has so much to offer with an abundance of wildlife, including buzzards, golden and sea eagles, otters, red deer and much more. Boat trips from Elgol will take you into Loch Coruisk in the heart of The Cuillin mountain range; this impressive loch is the spiritual heartland of the island and has been voted by the National Geographic as one of the top ten most beautiful places in the world. Marine life such as porpoises, seals, dolphins and whales are frequently seen on the boat trips from Elgol. For outdoor enthusiasts, activities nearby include hill walking, fishing, boat trips, kayaking and pony trekking, as well as the opportunity to discover the many restaurants, as well as the arts and crafts galleries.
Broadford is the nearest town with facilities like a post office, chemists, a hospital, garage, pubs, shops and restaurants, as well as spectacular views across the mainland and the Applecross Peninsula. There are many high quality places to eat in the local area and in Portree, the mainland town on the island. So come and enjoy a week at Braes of Kilbride for a relaxing time, and to be awestruck by the dramatic scenery. Shop and pub 4 miles, restaurant 1 mile.
