Description

This stunning, detached, circular property has a Malaysian beach hut theme, and has been newly constructed in 2019. It sits on the edge of its own private loch, in close proximity to the popular village of Plockton. The Sheiling offers guests an unforgettable luxury holiday experience with complete peace and seclusion. The property has a large wrap-around deck which extends over the loch, and has a sunken hot tub to sit in and enjoy those beautiful evenings. There is also a floating pontoon off the decking, where guests have access to a small rowing boat, which they can use to spend the afternoons lazing on the loch.
Within the property is a spacious open plan living area, which is finished with a modern contemporary theme. The kitchen area is full fitted and has a superb level of appliances, and there are two bedrooms, each with an en-suite facility. One has a kingsize bed and a private bathroom, and the other has twin beds and its own private shower room. Outside there is ample parking.
The location is ideal for exploring the west of Scotland, you can venture north and see the stunning Torridon mountains and take a visit to Applecross. The property is only a few miles from the Skye bridge where you can explore the magical island of Skye, or perhaps head to the east and visit the popular town of Fort Augustus and spend a day looking for the Loch Ness monster, Nessie.

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.
