Beautiful furniture and well equiped

I travelled with a group of 10 (5 couples) in late December and enjoyed a wonderful stay. The property is exceptionally spacious and well equipped, the kitchen dining area is a perfect for entertaining.
The location is remote but still close enough to Skye attractions, such as the Three Chimneys restaurant.
I would definitely recommend the property to any large group looking for a getaway.

The house is new to the market and as such all the furnishings are pristine. The location is right on the Lochside with views of the Loch on 2 sides. There are TVs in all rooms with a 50" Plasma in the lounge. The kitchen is fully equipped with high quality appliances.
Being at the end of a narrow track it is incredibly peaceful and tranquil. The best features are the amazing views and the variety of wild life, Eagles, Otters and Seals all can be regularly seen from the lounge or decking areas.
