The Hebrides/Skye region

The Highlands of Scotland are internationally known for its outstanding natural beauty, ancient castles and famous whisky distilleries. You can also sample the country's vibrant culture, with events including the Highland Games and famous Scottish 'ceilidhs'.

Broadford, Isle of Skye

The Isle of Skye in Scotland's Inner Hebrides archipelago has long attracted visitors with its spectacular, rugged landscapes and legendary air of romance. Ashaig House provides the ultimate base for exploring both Skye and the neighbouring mainland. Bask in an early morning stroll across the golden sands of Ashaig Beach, then hop into the car for a few day trips exploring the island's varied geological landscapes, and its history of Clans, Vikings & Bonnie Prince Charlie.

A week based in the comfort and tranquility of Ashaig House would allow four days for touring and walks in different parts of the island, along with a couple of days to explore highlights on the adjacent mainland. The spectacularly scenic conservation areas of Kintail & Balmacara (National Trust for Scotland estates) are a 25 minute drive from Ashaig House, offering a network of woodland trails, or a rewarding hike to one of the UK's highest waterfalls, the Falls of Glomach. The famous Torridon mountain range, visible across the sea from Ashaig House, is accessible within a highly scenic 1 hour drive.

Also, the idyllic village of Plockton, with its selection of cosy pubs, and renowned from the TV series 'Hamish MacBeth' sits nestled in a craggy bay only 20 minutes drive away. The Isle of Raasay, facing Ashaig House, offers a fascinating day trip, with spectacular views across to Skye. The local area also offers a selection of fine establishments serving local seafood.

"spectacular views from a very comfortable house"

A beautiful beach lies just in front of the house looking out to one of the best views in the world. The swimming is great( I would imagine if I was just a bit hardier) and there are facilities near at hand in Broadford just up the road. The house has a well kitted out kitchen comfortable lounge and the bedrooms have all you need with good beds and on suite facilities.
