The Hebrides/Skye region

Hillside is situated in the quiet township of Roskhill in the North West of Skye, a new build for the rental market for 2014.

A handful of houses here with peace and quiet guaranteed. Dunvegan village offers well equipped shops, petrol station, post office, bakers cafes and restaurants.

The village also boasts it's own millenium stone. This can be seen from miles around and you can walk up to the stone via St Mary's Church and the ancient cemetery where the Clan MacLeods are laid to rest. Superb views of MacLeods Tables (mountains) and the village can be seen from the millenium stone.

The World famous Dunvegan Castle & Gardens are approx 5 km away. Dunvegan Castle has been the home of the Chiefs of Clan MacLeod for 800 years.

Further down the road is Coral Beach where you can stroll along the white beach and watch the seals play in the water.

MacLeods Maidens offer a very good walk or off road cycle (approx 24km return) The views along the way are breathtaking, passing Loch Varkasaig, up into the forest, then out into the clearing before looking down from the top of a sea cliff to the Maidens (3 impressive sea stacks). If you do not wish to complete the full walk, why not stop after on 3km and enjoy the remote sandy beach at Varkasaig looking out towards the Cuillin mountain range.

Neist Point is another amazing place. Being the most North Westerly point on the Island, the views are spectacular, steep steps go down towards the lighthouse, well worth the effort.

There are just too many walks to list!!!

In and around Dunvegan are several arts and craft / photograph studios.

The old black house walk in museum is also nearby at Colbost (approx 4km) and is situated next door to the world famous Three Chimneys restaurant.

Boat trips operate from Dunvegan Castle throughout the summer months where you can see the seal colonies and various other wildlife at close quarters. Fishing trips can also be arranged.

Canoeing - Loch Dunvegan and Loch Roag are very good spots.

Fishing - lots of lochs to go fishing in, although you could just drop a line off Dunvegan pier or Neist Point

Skye is part of the Dark Sky programme. You can star gaze from the garden. Many constellations are very clear due to the unpolluted sky. The Northern Lights can also be seen from the croft at various times of the year or from many other places on Skye.

Ideally located for walking, climbing, cycling, bird watching, and many other outdoor pursuits.

Dunvegan Castle home of the Clan MacLeod is a ten minute car ride away.

If you don't want to wander too far, there are lovely walks on the doorstep. The Cuillin mountains are a 20 minute drive away, or if you fancy something less challenging there are an abundance of walks/bike routes to suit anyone, just ask us for more information.

Whether you are looking for a quiet chilled out or full on adventure holiday, Hillside is the ideal destination for the single traveller, couples, families, friends and honeymooners alike.

Portree

The Isle of Skye, Eilean a` Cheo (The Island of Mist) is an Island of outstanding natural beauty situated off the west coast of mainland Scotland and is the largest and best know of the Inner Hebrides. It is approx 50 miles long and 7 to 25 miles broad with a coastline of around 350 miles. Nowhere , infact, is further than 5 miles from the seal.

the geology of Skye represents an immense range of geological processes and around 1000 million years of Scotland's history. there are rocks representative of all three geological periods, Triasic, Jurassic and Cretaceous.

The Cuillins, the Old Man of Storr and the Quirang have long been favourites with climbers. Munro baggers and walkers alike. Naturally, both mountain and sea provide a haven for wildlife which abounds on the Island. There are frequent sightings of seals, porpoise, dolphin by the ever near shores, with rarer sights of otters, basking sharks and whales. Whilst Sea Eagles are plentiful, even the magnificent Golden Eagle has been spotted with some regularity.

The native language is Scottish Gaelic, although a high percentage of the spoken word heard is English.
