Description

Loch Long View sits in a commanding position high above the water on its own spacious plateau, with far reaching views of the loch and surrounding mountains. The cottage has been thoughtfully constructed with an exterior of Siberian larch, which has aged beautifully and compliments the dark green framed windows. Set within a 500-acre croft, there are sheep and Highland cows roaming the hillsides, as well as lots of other wildlife including red deer, pine marten and a variety of eagles. There is plenty of space around the cottage and a large garden, making the property ideal for pets too. At the back of the house and up the hill is an unfenced loch, home to brown trout.

The interior has French oak flooring throughout. On the ground floor there is a dual-aspect kitchen with lots of natural light and views along the length of Loch Long. With an Aga, which also provides heating for the property, guests can enjoy more traditional cooking, however, there is an electric oven and hob too. The large living room has a grand wood burner to cosy up infront of, and there is a bathroom also on the ground floor.

The French oak continues to flow up to the first floor, and with the abundance of natural light, works really well giving the two bedrooms a very spacious and calming feel, especially as the windows act as frames featuring the surrounding Highland landscape. Both the master bedroom and the twin bedroom, have unsurpassed views along the loch and the mountains. There is a bathroom between the bedrooms leading off the large landing.

Loch Long View is perfectly placed to explore the Isle of Skye with the bridge across to the island only 10 minutes’ away by car. Wester Ross with its highlights of Applecross and Torridon for more mountains and secluded coastline are also close by. Shop, pub and restaurant 3½ 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.
