Otter Lodge is the perfect location for couples. This superbly - presented pied a terre is situated right on the edge of Loch Harport on the stunning beautiful Western shore of the Isle of Skye. Approached via a quiet no through road leading down to the sea, it offers immaculate accommodation for two in a truly spectacular setting. The main living area is open plan, with generous sized sitting room, a dining area and bright, modern well equipped kitchen. The door opens onto a large decking area with picnic table and chairs and vistas of the sea loch, hills and mountains as far as the eye can see. The double bedroom is superbly presented with hand made patchwork quilt bedspread and colour coordinated soft furnishings. There is a good sized modern shower room. The garden grounds meander gently down to the water’s edge, between small shrubs and grassy banks. Here visitor’s can wander along the side of the loch, pick mussels in season, fish or just enjoy the quiet and seclusion.
Once of our recent customers review for Otter Lodge :- " Otter Lodge is beautifully built and equipped, the views are wonderful, but it was the warm welcome form David and Christine that we will remember most. Many thanks for a lovely week."
