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.

"Beautiful view, very central to Skye activities"
As a family of six, with four children aged 21, 20, 17 and 13 we started our 10 day family vacation here for 3 nights. The home felt just like a beach house here in the US. Very comfortable with a g… More

"Perfect spot with amazing views"
I have already recommended this place to several friends, it is such a perfect place to stay. The views from the house are stunning and the large window area with plenty of seating and long, light evenings meant it was idyllic just sitting and watching the tide going in and out and the sun setting over the mountains.
The house is further back from the beach than I had anticipated - and through a field with a bull in it! - and the beach disappears at high tide. But even then, the kids had a wonderful time running around on the grass and throwing stones into the sea. There is plenty to do on Skye, but it was nice to make time just to mooch around the house and beach.
The house is very comfortable, with everything you need for a short stay, a well appointed kitchen and comfy beds.

"A diamond of a place"
The reaction from my kids within a few minutes of arriving after a long wet and windy drive to find Ashaig House looking out onto a beautiful scorched red evening sky and seascape best sums up my feedback. "Thanks dad for booking this place - we love it, and we love you!" Everything was great and the small touches really made a big difference from the welcome bottle of wine, milk in the fridge and washing up liquid already provided. And the kitchen had every utensil you could wish for. The house was a great size for the 4 of us (me, wife & 2 kids - 11 & 12 years old). The kids shared a room upstairs with the other room downstairs being used as a dumping ground. The TV room was only used once in our week long stay as the best part of the house was the front room with its big window looking out to sea. Perfect for playing board games with the kids, or sipping a glass of wine while watching the sun go down. The house while isolated, was within walking distance to the nearest town of Broadford which you could access along a nice scenic off road path. The nearby beach was a treat when the tide retreated and was perfect for a walk along to blow away the cobwebs. While it's a fairly long drive to Portree and the attractions in the north such as Kilt Rocks and the Fairy Pools, the island of Skye has plenty to offer and the views are fantastic along the journey so we didn't mind exploring something new each day. Blessed with fairly decent weather, we found Ashaig House a perfect place to base ourselves. Thoroughly recommended.

Ashaig House is a perfect place (base camp) for those visiting Isle of Skye. It's well located, with all facilities and a AMAZING landscape view. By the way, the house is really new. I recommend this place if you are looking for something good and comfortable.

"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.
