Description

Mountain View is a traditional croft cottage that has been completely updated and refurbished and now provides brand new accommodation within a traditional country croft setting. As the name implies, it enjoys stunning views across open hillside to the famous Cuillin mountain range beyond. The attractive cottage lounge looks out through large picture windows to the Cuillins and the volcanic mountains of Raasay Island away in the distance. The kitchen/Dining room is well equipped with new built in units. The two beautifully presented bedrooms drink in the wonderful views. A large, modern family bathroom completes the picture. The cottage is set in two acres of croft land, with its own private gardens for visitor’s use. Set in a quiet lane with access onto open countryside, it is a hill walkers and climber’s paradise.

About the local area

The famous Cuillin mountain ranges are easily accessible and there are superb walks in the area suitable for all abilities. The immediate area is a haven for bird life and sea eagles, golden eagles, buzzards and a variety of other birds are regularly spotted close by. Whilst enjoying a quiet, peaceful, rural location, Mountain View is just 2 miles from Portree, the attractive and picturesque "capital" of Skye. Here brightly painted cottages cluster round the active harbour where some of the finest fish restaurants can be found. This bustling, atmospheric town boasts an excellent selection of interesting local shops, together with bars, restaurants and cafes. There is also a swimming pool and leisure centre. Boat trips also run from Portree harbour to encounter the local sea life close to hand, including the rare sea eagles, which nest in the area. The Isle of Skye is renowned for its mountains, coasts, historical sites and stunning scenery. Surrounded by miles of breathtaking coastline, awe inspiring mountain ranges, amazing, unique rock formations and magical castles and historical sites - the visitor is spoilt for choice. The surrounding area is a paradise for those who enjoy walking, climbing, fishing, sailing, kayaking, mountain biking, bird watching, golf or just totally relaxing and enjoying island living at its best. Just a few miles further north is the Trotternish Peninsular. Here the amazing Quiraing mountain range with its dramatic rock formations dominates the skyline. Formed from a combination of volcanic rock and limestone it is well worth a visit. The pretty fishing port of Uig just a short drive away has a number of excellent pubs and restaurants, a local bakery, pottery and is also home of the Isle of Skye brewery. From Uig one can take a ferry trip to the Outer Isles. Mountain View is the perfect base from which to explore this stunning island.
