Description

Glenburn House Apt 1 occupies half of the first floor of Glenburn House, a traditional croft cottage set in 12 acres of croft and that leads down to the shoreline. This small but cosy apartment is an ideal base for couples. It is situated amid some of the most beautiful and unspoilt scenery on the Isle of Skye. In the heart of the region known as Waternish, this wonderful backwater is famous for its stunning sunsets, magnificent seascapes, idyllic shoreline and pretty unspoilt hamlets, all untouched by time. The apartment is accessed via a staircase from the owner’s house, who resides on the ground floor. There is a small open plan living area with comfortable sofas and a small kitchen with dining table for three. The two bedrooms both enjoy stunning views across the sea from the skylight windows. A small bathroom with bath and shower over complete the picture.

About the local area

The surrounding area is a haven for wildlife and a bird watcher’s paradise. Golden eagles are resident in the area and local buzzards wheel overhead. Just a few yards from the croft a small lane leads down to a secluded grey sand sheltered cove beach and there are lovely forest and hill walks direct from the property. In the nearby harbour village of Stein there is an excellent seafood restaurant and a friendly village pub which also serves food - full of character, it is the oldest pub on Skye; an ideal spot to enjoy a pint on the grassy slope overlooking the bay. Boat trips run from Stein to West Point and Waternish Point to view the whales, dolphins and seals that frequent these waters. For those who truly like to get away from it all, it is also possible to become a ’castaway’ for a day on the nearby island of Isay. There is a wealth of outdoor activities right on the door step. Hill walking, climbing, sailing, canoeing and kayaking are all local pastimes. The nearby riding stables offer superb pony trekking over open moors and hills. There is even a local diving centre based on Waternish peninsular which offers professional diving trips to explore the crystal clear waters teaming with an abundance of marine life. Cycling and forest walk trails abound. The local area is steeped in history. Explore the ruins of nearby Trumpen Church - the site of the last battle between the MacDonalds and MacLeods - take a walk through a ruined village, ancient brochs, or head to the lighthouse to experience the amazing and dramatic seascape. 11 miles away is Dunvegan Castle, the oldest inhabited castle in Scotland and seat of the Clan MacLeod since the 13th century, which is well worth a visit. Visitors are welcome to wander the beautiful grounds and also take a boat  to encounter the seals closer to hand. There is also a renowned coral beach nearby. The pretty harbour town of Portree is just 25 miles via the hill road. Set around its natural harbour, with spectacular hills and mountains beyond, Portree is a quintessential picturesque fishing village.. Brightly painted cottages cluster round the active harbour where some of the finest fish restaurants can be found. There is also an excellent selection of local shops, pubs and other restaurants. Explore this wonderful area from the homely base that is Glenburn House Apt 1. Please note Glenburn House Apt 1 may be available with the adjoining Glenburn House Apt 2, which sleeps 2 people
