Known as Totternish amongst the locals, this area of Scotland offers some of the most striking landscapes in the country. This spacious, detached house lies only a few yards from the seashore in the scattered community of Balmaquein, midway between Duntulm and Flodigarry, and is fantastically placed for easy access to everything this picturesque island has to offer. The property itself is simple but comfortable and has been furnished to a high standard. It provides cosy, welcoming accommodation for up to six adults with incomparable panoramic views of the Scottish mainland and scenic Skye. Ideally placed for walkers, climbing enthusiasts and those just looking for some peace and quiet, this house is a great location for the holidaymaker that wants some space. The main tourist attractions are all close by and Portree, twenty-five miles away provides a range of pubs and restaurants.

Town: Situated on the Isle of Skye, the village of Balmaquein is situated between Duntulm and Flodigarry, where Flora McDonald famously helped Bonnie Prince Charlie to escape from his pursuers by dressing him as a woman. This stunning island has a wide array of visitor attractions, such as the Skye Museum of Island Life, Dunvegan Castle and the Aros Centre. Portree, the Island's capital is set around a natural harbour and is full of shops, hotels and restaurants. With the Skye Bridge now in place, access to the mainland is easy, but for those wishing to take the 'Bonny Boat' to Skye, a ferry still runs throughout the summer months.
