Description

With the sea and coast on three sides, the Cuillin Mountain Range to the south west and five islands lying before you, the views from all aspects of this wonderful home are breathtaking. And, you don’t just have the visual pleasure. Literally on your doorstep, lies Harlosh Point, together with croft ruins, the remains of what is thought to be a Viking long house, a chapel, ancient burial mounds, an accessible cave and so much more. The surrounding area is a haven for wildlife on land and sea, where there are regular sightings of eagles, hawks, buzzards, hares, hedgehogs, dolphins, porpoise, seals, minke whales, and even basking sharks. Not to mention a host of sea birds, such as gannets, shags, skuas, puffins, guillemots and many more, all of which can be seen from the property.

Despite being situated amongst peace and tranquillity, accessed by a rough track, this detached bungalow is only 5 miles from Dunvegan (North West Skye’s main town) with a wide range of amenities and what is undoubtedly one of Skye’s major attractions, Dunvegan Castle and Gardens, home to the chief of the Clan MacLeod. A trip on one of the seal boats is also a must. There is so much to do and see on this magical island and within easy driving distance from Seascape House you can be walking in dinosaur footprints, tasting whisky during a distillery tour, strolling the famous Coral Beach, walking or climbing in the spectacular Cuillins or sipping a local real ale in Skye’s oldest pub. And so much more. All of this interspersed with a host of art galleries and cafés.

Seascape House is conveniently all on one level and exceptionally spacious. The large living/dining room is double aspect, commanding amazing views and boasts an open fire. There are four bedrooms to choose from, two containing kingsize beds with en-suite facilities, one double bedded room and a twin bedded room. There is also a a large family bathroom complete with a roll-top bath. The double aspect kitchen is well-equipped with everything you could need for your stay. Shop, pub and restaurant 5 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.
