Description

Druim Ban, an architect designed house, lies on a croft in the charming community of Camuscross, on the Sleat Peninsula. Set within mature, landscaped gardens, and enjoying a view of the sea, Druim Ban also has a working croft surrounding it, managed by the owners who live just down the road. You will have Highland cows, sheep and pigs as neighbours.

The winding road leading to the property in Camuscross is special. You leave behind normality and enter the extraordinary. Pulling up to Druim Ban, there’s nowhere else you’d rather be. With lots of private space right round the property, and seating areas and a barbecue to enjoy, the fully enclosed garden is perfect for a family.

Upon entering the house you arrive in a large hallway. Immediately to the left there is a large boot and drying room, very useful for after a day’s adventure out in Skye. There’s a large family bathroom and a double bedroom to the right, and straight on from the hallway is the large and spacious dual-aspect dining room. Glass doors open out onto the patio area with views of the bay beyond. Outside is also a sheltered courtyard patio, which would make a perfect spot for breakfast, or why not wander down to the end of the garden and make the most of the beach?

The large kitchen is open plan with the dining room and offers lovely views across the garden to the sea. The living room is beyond the dining room, separated by an impressive bookcase. This room is wonderfully light again with great views, and has an outstanding wood burner.

Beyond the living room is the master double bedroom with en-suite shower room. Like the rest of the house, it is artfully designed and decorated. A twin bedroom is to be found at the stop of the stairs, and under the stairs is a clever utility cupboard with a washing machine and tumble dryer.

Druim Ban is a dream house, and one you’ll wish you owned yourself. At the very least you’ll want to return again and again. It’s well placed, fairly close to the Skye Bridge and on the charming and often overlooked Sleat Peninsula. You can see the big hitters of Skye from here and then return to your little slice of Highlands and Islands paradise in Camuscross. Coast 100 yards. Shop 1 mile, 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.
