For a hundred years this imposing house has stood in a walled garden at the north end of Skye. A former manse, it has been sympathetically restored and, whilst decorated and finished to a high standard, still retains the atmosphere of a family home.
All the rooms are light, spacious, high-ceilinged, furnished with antiques and provided with an interesting and varied selection of books. The upstairs bedrooms are large en suite doubles with sea-facing views.
The ground floor bedroom (once the Minister's study) overlooks the attractive garden. It is a large room with a double and a single bed,and a private bathroom. It can easily accommodate wheelchair users.
Kilmuir has something of everything; for the walker the Trotternish ridge is on our doorstep and for the less intrepid, there are lovely coastal walks. Ornithologists will find much of interest - there are golden eagles in the hills behind the house and the rasping call of the elusive corncrake, one of the rarest birds in Britain can be heard on neighbouring crofts.
For those interested in the past, Kilmuir has a lively involvement in its history; we, the community, have excavated a 2000 year old Iron Age souterrain (underground passage) about a mile from Kilmuir House.
