Description

With five star luxury interiors in one of Scotland’s most stunning locations, this apartment will be hard to beat on design or location. Housed in an 1830s harbourside development, you’re staying right at the heart of the pretty town of Portree. Pastel coloured houses sit alongside this bustling port - so you get to enjoy the comings and goings by day and the pure tranquillity by night. And with the most spectacular views from every window, you’ll never want to leave. This beautiful harbourside building has been lovingly renovated, perfectly combining Victorian interiors with on-trend industrial styling, with thoughtful touches and bespoke pieces throughout.
The large open plan living and dining room take in the most glorious sea views. Wonderfully relaxed styling means you get to choose to recline on large leather sofas or perfectly placed window seats. With stone walls, a large wood burner and bespoke artwork, this room is as characterful as they come. And the large antique chest is a veritable treasure trove of board games. The television comes complete with Netflix and a high speed broadband connection. The dining area has a chunky dining table taking in the best of the views, whilst enjoying your morning cup of tea or evening meal. And the feature chalkboard art wall injects some fun alongside the wonderfully moody colour scheme. The handcarfted kitchen is as handsome as they get, with all the mod cons you could need. The thoughtful welcome basket is bursting with delights - from porridge oats (naturally) to biscuits and some of the most indulgent hot chocolate you have ever tasted. Upstairs there are three bedrooms - one double en-suite, one king size double, and one twin room. All exude the same level of luxury with Hungarian goose down bedding, crisp white linen and dazzling views. The beds are hand made, with luxuriously deep carpets. The large family bathroom has a freestanding slipper bath and shower, designer egg pod basin, and underfloor heating.
Positioned right in the heart of Portree - you are part of the picture perfect view. Enjoy wildlife spotting - from the property you’ll see herons and seals (and possibly even dolphins). If you’d like to see more, then take one of the harbourside tours from outside the front door. Once at sea, you may get a chance to spot whales or even a white tailed eagle. You can easily explore this beautiful little town on foot - and there are maps provided for discovering the local area. And for days when you don’t want to cook, you can sample some of the local seafood - from pubs and restaurants to some very tasty harbourside fish and chips.

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.
