Description

Sealladh Breagh itself is set in a generous spot surrounded by crofting land, so sheep and cattle will often roam past the garden fence. The property is elevated and has a private driveway leading up to the generous parking area. On entering the property, the hallway is visible stretching the length of the ground floor. To the right initially is the master bedroom with a double bedroom and en-suite facilities. It is spacious and very light with large windows. There are two other bedrooms off the hallway, again very spacious, and a large family bathroom. At the end of the house is the kitchen/dining room that is triple aspect with a door leading out to the utility room and rear door to garden. It is a farmhouse-style kitchen and a very inviting space to sit, relax and enjoy hearty home cooking. There is also a door out onto the wonderfully located decking to enjoy west-facing views as the evening sun dips towards Macleod’s Tables on the far western side of the island. The pièce de résistance though is the living room in the central part of the house. It has a fantastic feature wood burner, triple aspect with huge windows letting in those mountain views, and a patio door out onto the fantastic decking. Sealladh Breagh just keeps on giving, the stairs lead to the first floor which is open-plan and contains both a cinema area and a games room area with pool table and table football. It takes this holiday home to the next level. Once you arrive, you won’t want to leave.
All the family will enjoy spending time up this magical glen on the Trotternish Peninsula. Sealladh Breagh is in a truly wonderful location on the Isle of Skye. It’s nestled at the end of a small road at the foot of the Trotternish Ridge, but on the western side, the far less visited side, and situated in Glen Hinnisdal, a truly hidden gem. You can walk up onto the ridge to join the Skye Trail from the road end, go hiking and stroll from your doorstep to fly fishing areas which the owner who lives on-site can advise you on.
You are not far from the main Portree and Uig road, being only a few miles away, so you can be in Uig and Portree in no time at all, where you will find bars, cafés, restaurants and lots of other things to do. The Fairy Glen is only a few glens away, and a highlight for any visit to the island. A short drive via Uig and over the Trotternish Ridge will get you to the Quiraing, Staffin with its dinosaur footprints, Brothers’ Point with more dinosaur footprints, and the truly memorable Old Man of Storr. The Trotternish Peninsula really is a spectacular location for a holiday and many would argue, the best spot to be for a trip to the Isle of Skye. Beach 4 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 6 miles.
Sealladh Breagh can be booked together with Taigh Iasg (ref UK30003) 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.
