Description

Holly View Annexe is an outstanding holiday home on the Isle of Skye, perfect for a short break or a week. The owners are members of the Association of Scottish Self-Caterers and you can be assured of a great holiday. Situated on the outskirts of Portree, Holly View Annexe is only half a mile to the centre of town with its attractive harbour, characterful streets and numerous restaurants and hotels and food outlets. There is use of an electric car charging point at the property for guests with hybrid or EV cars, at cost price. Being on the edge of Portree and set in the mature gardens of Kintaraglen House gives enviable views to the Cullins and of the surrounding Scottish moorland hills, typical of northern Skye. The best of both worlds, and an ideal place for relaxing after exploring the island. Portree is centrally located on Skye and a great starting point to explore the vaious ’wings’ of the island. Only five minutes from the Old Man of Storr and fifteen from the Kilt Rock, Mealt Falls and on to the Quiraing and the other highlights of the Trotternish peninsula. That’s just for starters, to the west you have the joys of the Waternish, Duirnish and Minginish peninsulas to explore too, each with their own charm and all with fabulous views.
Blessed with superb fine dining, gourmets can chhose from The Three Chimneys, Edinbane Inn, Lochbay Seafood restaurant, Kinloch Lodge and a multiude of wonderful restaurants, coffee shops and cafés, Skye has several renowned distilleries; Talisker perhaps the best known. The Fairy Pools are close to Carbost and the distillery and visiting them edge you into the Cuillin mountains. The Cuillin are only nine miles south of Portree, and are often visible from the town. There are countless routes to be walked and climbed throught the island, some well known others peaceful gems. A highlight that many don’t make time for is a trip to Loch Coruisk hidden away in the heart of the Black Cuillin. You can walk to the loch, but it’s a long and arduous journey. Better is to drive to Elgol in the south of the island and take a boat into the mountains. It’s a magical, misty tour! The south of the island is very different to the north, but still worth exploring. Elgol is picture perfect, and beyond the mountains the Garden of Skye, the Sleat Peninsula awaits with its crofting settlements and hidden beaches. Holly View Annexe is truly the ideal base for a Skye holiday. Beach 7 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant ¾ mile.
The Garden Wing can be booked together with Holly View Annes (UK32205) and The Garden Cottage (UK32206) to accommodate up to 8 guests.

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.
