The Old Church is perfectly situated to allow easy access to wonderful walks, wildlife & stunning scenery. It is a deceptively large house with flexible accommodation ideally suited to two families or large groups. PETS VERY WELCOME! From the large main lounge there is a fantastic view over Ardvasar Bay & the Sound of Sleat. At the other end of the house there is a kitchen with dining table & additional lounge area looking out over a field that is usually populated with Highland cows & their calves.

PLEASE NOTE:- The information on this advert has information about the house after refurbishment in early 2012. It is more up to date than our own website. Thank you.

Just along the road there is an excellent hotel/pub/restaurant which is exceptionally friendly. There is also a small but well stocked shop in the village, both within easy walking distance of the house. There are many local craft shops & galleries around as well as a host of outdoor activities around Skye.

The house is just under a mile from the ferry terminal at Armadale making a day trip to the mainland an easy choice. The area around Mallaig & Arisaig is well worth investigating as well as the beautiful SilverSands beach only a couple of miles from Mallaig.

Further details indoors

The house is bursting with character with wooden wall panelling, a beautiful oak staircase & some stained glass windows. It is exceptionally well equipped and intended to be a "home from home" - the only thing we have ever been asked for is a toast rack!!

The garden is very pretty and is fully enclosed. There is a selection of garden furniture and also a "Midgebuster" so the garden can be enjoyed at all times.

The Hebrides region

The Isle of Skye is the largest of the Inner Hebrides, having some 350 miles of coastline. Over 1 million years ago the majestic landscape of mountains, moorland and lochs was created by violent volcanic activity. Deep Glens and spectacular peaks were formed during the ice age. The red Cuillins are amongst the dramatic natural beauties of the isle, enjoyed by many climbers both in winter and summer. The island tells of a rich and turbulent history, which dates back to the Iron Age.

Vikings settled and dominated Skye for almost 400 years. Like so much of Scotland there was recurring fighting between the clans. On Skye the Macdonald Clan, known as the Lords of the isle (Armadale Castle) and the MacLeod Clan (Dunvegan Castle were at war for many years.

It was on the Isle of Skye that Flora MacDonald gave shelter to Bonnie Prince Charlie from the English army and helped him to escape to France. A memorial to her can be visited in Staffin in the north of the island..

Traditions are very much kept and around a third of the population speaks Gaelic. The Gaelic College, Sabhal Mor Ostaig, is expanding rapidly and hosts many interesting cultural events throughout the year.


The Sleat Peninsula is often known as "The Garden of Skye". Here the terrain is gentler than many other areas of Skye although no less impressive. There are some wonderful beaches within easy driving distance. The peninsula stretches some 25 miles from the main body of Skye culminating in the Point of Sleat at the southernmost tip. There are a number of award winning restaurants along the peninsula as well as many craft shops and galleries. Armadale Castle has an excellent museum, beautiful gardens with woodland walks and and a lovely Cafe with locally produced goods. Boat trips are available to go wildlife spotting.

"Heaven on Earth"

It's a must.
This is the 6th time i have stayed at The Old Church and it gets better every time.
The owners ongoing enthusiasm to make you feel at home yet part of the laid back lifestyle of The Isle of Skye works.
The addition this year of a bell tower visible from the ferry on arrival and then the constant TLC inside, that has now incorporated an on suite shows that they want you to have the relaxing holiday you deserve
Its truly stunning and i will be coming back next year. THANK YOU.
