The Isle View Nest is a perfect holiday home for a couple wanting to be well located for exploring the Isle of Skye, but at the same time have a comfortable, stylish stay with a sea view to return to at the end of an active day.
It is situated right on the shore of the Inner Sound, with views across Broadford Bay towards the island of Pabay and the Applecross Peninsula beyond. It’s a perfect spot, and with such a large tidal range just outside the property, the view is constantly changing. When the tide is in, the water will be lapping the garden edge, but at low tide there’s a marvellous beach that goes from the garden for miles and miles.
The Isle View Nest is perfectly formed and a couple will love it, the cabin and has its own decking with furniture, just the spot where you can enjoy a bottle of wine. The sliding patio doors lead into the open plan living/dining room/kitchen. There’s comfortable seating, a nice little table and a very large, modern kitchen with all the appliances you will need. The 50” Smart TV is a bonus, too. But the real asset of this room is the wall of glass that allows an enormous amount of light to flood in, but also gives you the chance to simply watch this wonderful coastal scene change minute-by-minute. Beyond the living area is the double bedroom space, which is separated by a low wall, so The Isle View Nest is essentially a studio cabin. A walk-in shower is off of the bedroom.
The Isle View Nest is very well placed for couples wanting to explore all corners of Skye, with The Old Man of Storr and the Quiraing only 40 minutes away. Point Neist Lighthouse is 50 minutes, and the magnificent Cuillin is only 20 minutes away. Elgol and the Sleat Peninsula are also very close. Broadford has an excellent supermarket and plenty of restaurants and bars to enjoy after rushing around seeing the many things Skye has to offer. Beach 100 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
The Isle View Nest can be booked together with Isle View (28284) to accommodate up to 6 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.
