Description

Seaforth Cottage is set in its own delightful cottage gardens and enjoys stunning views across Loch Bracadale and the surrounding hills. Approached via its own short private track in the pretty hamlet of Portnalong, this traditional single storey cottage has been lovingly cared for and updated by its owners. With many original features it offers a warm, cosy ambience in a wonderfully private setting. The lounge has a superb exposed stone wall, with feature wood-burning stove set in original fireplace. It looks out across the pretty gardens, with mature flowering shrubs, lawns and trees. It is totally secluded and a real asset to the cottage. The kitchen / dining room is modern and well-equipped. There are two pretty bedrooms (the main double bedroom has an attractive inglenook fireplace) and a modern family-sized bathroom. Situated just off a quiet country lane that leads down to Portnalong harbour, on the Minginish Peninsular, the surrounding hills and open countryside make this a walkers, climbers and cyclists paradise. The Cuillin Mountain range and Macleod’s Tables are both within striking distance of the cottage.

About the local area

The attractive hamlet of Portnalong has a pretty harbour and there are some superb walks direct from the cottage as well as a lovely beach at nearby Fiscavaig. Although small, Portnalong has some excellent local facilities. Just a few minutes’ walk from the cottage is Minginish Community Hall, with a very attractive café providing meals and cream teas. There are a wide variety of events and activities held here, including badminton, ceilidh classes, craft fairs and even a ‘yummy mummy’ toddler group, all open to visitors.  There is also a local pub and restaurant close by. The whole region is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream.  Sub-aqua diving from the pier, canoeing, sailing, and kayaking are all right on the door-step (for those wishing to bring their own boat there is a slipway for visitor’s use at Portnalong harbour). There are numerous places of interest within easy reach.  Talisker Distillery is situated just along the road in the nearby hamlet of Carbost.  Dunvegan Castle, seat of the Clan MacLeod since the 13th century and the oldest inhabited castle in Scotland, is just a short drive away. Visitors are welcome to wander the beautiful grounds and also take a boat to encounter the seals closer to hand. The beautiful coral beach nearby is also worth exploring. The pretty harbour town of Portree is about 20 minutes’ drive away. Set around its natural harbour, with spectacular hills and mountains beyond, Portree is a quintessentially 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 as well as a superb leisure centre with a 25 metre swimming pool, sauna, steam room and table tennis, all available to visitors.
