The Old Chapel of Ease , Carbo
Converted Chapel | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Lovingly converted and restored with great attention to detail this holiday retreat provides everything the discerning visitor could wish for.
Designed to accommodate just 2 people, the spaciousness and relaxed contemporary ambience immediately impresses as does the cosy warmth from the under floor heating, the elegant simplicity of the plain white walls and the sheer and utter comfort of the furnishings and equipment.
Indeed, guests may even find it difficult to step outside to truly appreciate the wonderful highland scenery surrounding their holiday home.
An entrance vestibule/boot room has a utility area to the side providing a washer/dryer. A heavy door opens into an impressive open area with the bespoke stained glass ‘Thistle’ window filtering gentle light through the gable wall.
This area has 2 exercise machines to help keep guests in trim after having over-indulged in the fresh local produce that you can enjoy.
Along the corridor is the ‘spa’ bath and sauna room with a large window from which to view the scenery whilst soaking in the bath. The bedroom is again an impressive room with King size bed, beautiful fabrics and furnishings and a flat screen wall mounted TV for easy bedtime viewing.
The bathroom/wet room is beautifully tiled in mosaic tiles and comprises WC, bidet, shower and wash hand bowl. A specially designed spiral staircase provides access from the ground floor to the upper floor where the open plan accommodation provides a spacious fully equipped kitchen (including dishwasher of course) and a low settee position beside another large window from which to fully appreciate the lovely views or simply watch the Television.
Carbost is a typical highland village with local village Inn and Shop. It is also home to the world famous Talilsker Distillery and Visitors Centre. Carbost is also a perfect central location to tour the whole island and visit the many attractions on offer.
If you are a keen hillwalking Carbost is particularly well placed for easy access into the heart of the magnificent Cuillin mountain range.

The Hebrides/Skye region
The North West Highlands of Scotland holds some of the world's best scenery as well as hundreds of plant and animal species.
It also has a unique culture and although eveyone here now speaks English, the local language is the Gaelic (pronounced. Gaalik)
Originally named Kiltarigan, Port-righe – meaning King’s Port in Gaelic – was renamed after a visit by King George V. Situated in a natural harbour, Portree is a delightful haven for visiting yachts and cruise ships which return year after year. On a summer’s evening you can watch the local fishermen landing their catch.
Boat trips leave regularly from the bustling harbour. You can try deep sea fishing or go for a leisurely cruise around the neighboring Island of Raasay.
There are many fine seafood restaurants to be found in and around Portree. After a delicious meal why not take a stroll to the village square where The Isle of Skye Pipe Band regularly play on summer evenings. Street fayres are held in the summer months providing fun and games for all the family.
The island’s swimming pool offers regular fun days which the children will love. Local cycle hire is also available. There is a superb children’s playground at the Aros Experience – visitors will also enjoy the exhibition telling the full story of Bonnie Prince Charlie’s famed visit to Skye.
The less energetic can while away the hours watching the local shinty team entertaining the crowd at their home park – Parc na Loch.
For many people Portnalong/ Carbost this is the most inspirational area of the island. The awe inspiring scenery provided by the magnificent Cuillins has attracted countless visitors for over a century. Climbers, walkers, artists and photographers are drawn by the wonderful panoramic views and the challenge to either capture images or conquer the mighty peaks and ridges.
You can watch the local fishermen landing their catches at nearby Carbost and Portnalong. This area enjoys a good selection of pubs and restaurants and children are well catered for. The renowned Talisker Distillery offers guided tours for visitors and there are regular events held throughout the summer months which all the family can enjoy.
