The Holt is a cosy, semi-detached holiday apartment adjoining the owner&rsquo;s own home. Tranquil location. The Holt is a cosy, welcoming, semi-detached holiday apartment adjoining the owner&rsquo;s own home. It is situated on the edge of the village of Glenelg and benefits from beautiful views of the Skye mountains to the front and the Glenelg Hills to the rear. Glenelg is an area steeped in history, having the mainland&rsquo;s two best preserved Iron-Age brochs, Dun Telve and Dun Troddan, and the ruins of the Hanoverian Bernera Barracks, built during Jacobite times. In addition to being renowned for its scenic beauty, with the drive to Glenelg over the Mam Ratagan Pass affording some of the most spectacular views in Scotland, Glenelg is a haven for wildlife. The generally elusive otter and pine marten are regularly seen, and for the birdwatcher, there is a host of interesting species to spot, including several rarities. As well as golden eagles, Glenelg has a resident pair of white tailed sea eagles which can regularly be seen fishing the Kylerhea Narrows. Dolphins, porpoises and the occasional minke whale or basking shark can also be seen. Clear nights during the winter months could reward visitors with spectacular views of the stars and the Milky Way. With virtually no light pollution and wonderful dark skies, this is an astronomer&rsquo;s delight and it is possible to witness meteor showers or the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights). Glenelg, Earth is twinned with Glenelg, Mars and has the distinction of being the only village on Earth twinned with another planet! Walking, kayaking and climbing are all activities which can be enjoyed locally, and a trip over to Skye on the Glenelg-Skye Ferry, the last remaining turntable ferry of its type in the world, is both a memorable and enjoyable experience. Pets are very welcome at The Holt and a pet sitting service is available by arrangement with the owner. Ferry point 2 miles. Beach &frac34; miles. Shop, pub and restaurant &frac12; mile..
