Description

This lovely semi-detached property enjoys amazing views across the heather clad hills of the Sleat peninsula, and makes the perfect base for exploring the beautiful Isle of Skye and the west coast of the highlands. Set next door to the owners’ home, Meadowcroft has been equipped and furnished to a good standard to ensure you have as comfortable and relaxing holiday as possible. Pets are also welcome at the property, and the owner has provided a dog bed and blankets. The Sleat peninsula is known as ‘The Garden of Skye’ with its lush gardens and forests which meet the waters of the Sound of Sleat, where you can find many unspoilt beaches and rocky inlets. The peninsula is the home to the Torabhaig Distillery, the first malt whisky distillery to be built on Skye since 1831. Visit Armadale Castle and its beautiful gardens, the Clan Donald Skye Visitor Centre and the Kylerhea Otter Hide, all just a short drive.
Travel to the northern end of the island to visit Dunvegan Castle and Gardens, and from there take a walk to the stunning coral beach. Portree, the island’s capital, has a lovely range of shops, restaurants and bars, which very often have live music, making for a great night out. For the outdoor enthusiast, Skye is a paradise. Enjoy walking and climbing in the Cuillins, mountain biking, pony trekking and an abundance of water sports including whale watching boat trips, kayaking and fishing, to name just a few. For the less energetic, sit back, relax and unwind and admire the views from the comfort of your chair. Beach 7¾ miles. Shop 6¾ miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

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.
