About the local area

There are superb walks direct from the house, including a lovely walk across the Sound out to an island in the bay at low tide. It is just 8 miles from the Kyle of Lochalsh, the charming sea port village that is the gateway to the Isle of Skye. There are a variety of small, unusual shops here, together with cafes and restaurants. A glass bottomed boat also runs from Kyle to view the sea life close to hand. The Gavin Maxwell Otter Centre at Kyleakin is well worth a visit and numerous distilleries and ancient historical sites are all within easy reach. Armadale Castle, seat of the Clan Donald, with its superb gardens and grounds set in 20,000 acres, also houses a fascinating museum and is easily accessible in the south of the island. Boat trips to see the seals, dolphins and whales run from Armadale harbour. The ferry also sails from here across to Mallaig on the mainland. This part of island is known as the garden of Skye and is renowned for its superb walking, climbing, bird watching and beautiful fauna and flora. It also offers easy access to a wealth of historical sites and places of interest. There is also plenty to see and do right on the doorstep. The fairy tale castle of Eilean Donan, enchantingly situated on a promontory in the loch and accessed by a small causeway, is just 3 miles away. A spectacular route takes you past this famous castle and through the amazing mountain range known as the Five Sisters of Kintail and beautiful Glen Shiel, before reaching the shores of Loch Ness. The picture post card village of Plockton is also close by, made famous as the venue for the television series Hamish Macbeth. With its picturesque flower filled gardens, little winding streets and pretty cottage lining the foreshore it is easy to see why it has become a haunt for artists in recent years. With its close proximity to the Isle of Skye and the mountains, hills, lochs and coastline of the Western Highlands, this lovely loch side house makes an ideal base for exploring this spectacular region of Scotland.
