Interaction with Guests
I am normally there to welcome guests in person when they arrive. I will be able to assist with trip and excursion planning and answer any questions about the history and culture of the area and about the house.
World famous restaurants on the island (Kinloch Lodge 10 mins, Three Chimneys 45 mins) are within easy reach with other high quality dining experiences at Toravaig, Isle Ornsay and Duisdale even closer.
Skye's upgraded road system puts this location only 15 minutes by car from supermarket and other shopping in the village of Broadford, only 30 minutes from the extraordinary Cuillin mountain range and 10 minutes more from Skye's capital Portree.
Skye is an extraordinary holiday location and a stay at Bunaite is a perfect introduction to this unforgettable island destination.
Fantastic for wildlife! Otters, golden eagles, sea-eagles, red deer all live within walking distance of the croft and may be seen by the sharp-eyed nature lover or the just plain lucky! Maps and guides are available for walkers and cyclists. Walk along the shore just below the croft to the ruins of historic Knock Castle, visit the MacDonald Clan visitor centre just a 5 minute drive away or study or go to a concert at the nearby Sabhal Mòr Ostaig. Walk to the Point of Sleat via the golden beach at Camas Daraich or cycle over the twisting turning track to remote Tarskavaig village with its astonishing views of the mighty Cuillin mountains. Observe the working croft next door with rare sheep and rare hens, ponies, geese and more.
Room to park at the rear of the house. Bunaite is 4 miles from the ferry terminal at Armadale which has a regular car ferry service to and from Mallaig on the mainland. Mallaig has further ferry services to other islands such as South Uist and Canna, and a justly celebrated rail line to Glasgow (West Highland Line) . The local bus service links Ferrindonald not only to Armadale but to other parts of the island such as Broadford, Sligachan and Portree. Change buses at Portree for the likes of Uig and Dunvegan. We are 18 miles from the Skye Bridge.
No smoking. Not suitable for pets.No parties or events.Check-in is after 5PM
Smoking outdoors. In exceptional circumstances dogs may be allowed by prior agreement but Bunaite is situated on a working croft so dogs must be kept on a leash at all times as the hens and geese roam freely and the crofter, my brother-in-law, has a sheepdog.
