Description

Deo-na-Mara is an immaculately clean and well-presented bungalow in an unrivalled location towards the far north of Dunvegan Head. Its views are far-reaching to the striking, white coral beach and Waternish peninsula with its famous village of Stein.

Upon entering the property you are met by a large hallway with the living/dining room off to the right. It’s very spacious and has large windows both sides of the house letting in a lot of natural seascape light. The views are sensational from the seating area.

The kitchen is a good size and has all modern facilities. There’s a door just off from the kitchen that leads out to the rear garden, which has moorland views with two very attractive and weathered croft buildings nestled into the heather.

Further along the wide hallway there’s a good sized family bathroom with rainforest shower. There’s a kingsize double bedroom, a double bedroom, and a twin room. All bedrooms are large, and the two doubles have seascape views.

Deo-na-Mara is set within a large garden, which is fully enclosed, with lots of space to sit outside admiring the natural surroundings and spotting wildlife walking past the door. There are walks aplenty right from the property, with Dunvegan Head a popular circuit. Just across from the property there is a little access track down to a jetty and the coastline for more adventures.

As well as the Three Chimneys restaurant only a few miles away, Dunvegan is close by with many eateries, a shop and of course its castle. Glendale, a thriving crofting community is close to and has places to eat and drink. Glendale is the gateway to the awe-inspiring Point Neist Lighthouse, which guests must visit and experience in the latter parts of the day, or even better at sunset. Beach 10½ miles. Shop and pub 1½ miles, restaurant 2 miles.

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.
