The Old Schoolhouse - Carbost

Self Catering

Carbost Beag, Carbost, Isle Of Skye, IV47 8SE

    The cottage was built about 100 years ago and has a fine outlook down to Loch Harport and the Red Cuillins.

    It has been comfortably modernised while
    retaining its traditional character. Open fires, electric heating and double
    glazing ensure that you will be cosy. The large old school room has been
    equipped with table tennis, darts and other games and the furniture in
    there is fairly old so it is a great place for children and adults to let
    off steam on wet days. It makes an ideal walking and climbing centre being
    about 8 miles from both Sligachan and Glenbrittle. It stopped being a school
    about 60 years ago (but a few people around still remember going to school
    there.) The pool below a spectacular nearby waterfall is much enjoyed by
    some as a swimming pool. The cottage is situated on its own about half a
    mile above Carbost village, well-known for the Talisker Distillery. There is
    an inn (very popular for bar meals), a post office and a small shop. The
    nearest shopping centre is Portree, about 18 miles away.

    Price varies dependent on time of year and occupancy number (£120 - £420 per week).

    Please contact Mrs Peppe for further details.
