Cosy up infront of the open fire after a day exploring this lovely setting. Superb coastal walks and outdoor pursuits direct from the door.
Skye View is a quintessential seaside cottage, tucked away down a quiet no-through lane that leads directly onto the shoreline, in the pretty hamlet of Big Sand. It is a delightful, traditional stone, detached cottage providing warm and welcoming accommodation in a lovely setting. The charming lounge has a large open fireplace, deep-silled windows and captivating sea views. There are two beautifully presented bedrooms on the first floor and a well-equipped kitchen with dining table and chairs on the ground floor. Garden grounds surround the cottage and a patio with picnic table and chairs provide an ideal spot to sit and enjoy the wonderful views across the sea, with the Isle of Skye clearly visible. There are superb coastal walks direct from the cottage, just a 10-minute walk along the shoreline leads to the sweeping sandy bay of Big Sand, with miles of unspoilt beach and high sand dunes. There are also some interesting caves to explore close by. The village of Gairloch is just four miles along the coast. It is renowned for its beaches, with the awe-inspiring Torridon mountain range acting as a backdrop. Here, there are a good selection of small shops as well as some excellent restaurants and bars. The area is famed for its wealth of wildlife. Dolphins, seals, whales and a wide variety of sea birds are all spotted in the region. Golf, fishing, pony trekking, cycling, canoeing, kayaking and sailing are all local pastimes. With unspoilt sandy beaches and superb scenery, this is an ideal holiday location for all ages.
