Description

Bracadale House is a detached, architect-designed property situated on the shoreline of Loch Harport, and is designed to capture the outstanding loch and hill views from all the rooms especially with floor-to-ceiling windows. The rooms are spacious and tastefully furnished taking all comforts into consideration. A very large, bright and airy sun room leads out into the garden, and a central island is a feature of the kitchen. For the convenience of less mobile guests, a sofa bed in the living room is a welcome addition. All bedrooms have fitted wardrobes, and the master bedroom has a large balcony where you can sit out and enjoy the sunrise, sunset or dark skies.

The Minginish Peninsula has much to offer with superb walking for all levels, including Talisker Bay, Glenbrittle Beach, Fairy Pools and the Cullin for the experienced climbers. There are local pubs that have regular live music, as well as craft shops, art galleries and the Talisker Distillery, however it is the scenery and the changing light that makes this area so dramatic. Take a trip to Dunvegan Castle, Coral Beach, Neist Point Lighthouse or the beautiful Waternish Peninsula, which are all recommended and lie on the west side of the island.

Portree, the bustling main town, is where you can take a stroll down to the harbour and watch the fishing vessels unload their catch of the day. Enjoy a sea trip from Portree to see the varied sea and bird life, and also to enjoy the beauty of the rugged coastline. To the north of Portree is the Trotternish Peninsula, which boasts some of Skye’s most stunning scenery. To the south of the island is Broadford, with the southern tip called ‘The Garden of Skye’. Here you can visit the ruins of Armadale Castle and its lovely gardens. Outdoor pursuits include kayaking, pony trekking, boat trips and fishing/angling. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 500 yards.

About the local area

Skye is one of the largest and best known Scottish islands and is particularly famous for its spectacular mountain scenery. It is also home to some dramatic history, diverse wildlife and rugged mountain beauty. The island of Skye makes for a great holiday destination with many visitor attractions, endless walking routes and fabulous restaurants.

Due to its popularity with tourists, you will find many craft shops and cottage museums. As for sports, you can visit the swimming pool in Portree, play golf at Sconser and Skeabost or go pony trekking. Watersports available on the island include diving, canoeing, windsurfing and yachting. Skye is also the ideal place for fishing and birdwatching.

Skye is easily accessible by either road or ferry. The road bridge is accessible from the Kyle of Lochalsh on mainland Scotland making it ideal for a day trip as well as a longer stay.

Lochalsh is truly highland territory full of clans and castles, hills of heather and views of lochs to the sea beyond. Visit the village of Plockton, a picture perfect location or Scotland's highest waterfall, The Five Sisters of Kintail. Where ever you go you are sure to be surrounded by some truly awesome scenery.

The Western Isles is a chain of islands also known as the Outer Hebrides. The main destination is the Isle of Lewis, a fairly flat island with many spectacular sandy beaches, a rugged coastline and a landscape that is worth investigating. Visitors will enjoy lots of activities including fishing, cycling, walking and bird watching. There are many other standing stones and archaeological monuments to visit too.

The rest of the western Isles can be explored using Lewis as a base. Most of the surrounding islands are covered in a blanket of peat meaning they are teaming with wildlife. Spot birds such as Kittiwakes, Guillemots, Kestrels, Hen Harriers and Redshank. With any luck you may even see otters, seals, eagles or dolphins off shore. In the summer months there are many colourful wild flowers to be seen and if you visit later in the season you can enjoy the heather in full bloom.
