Set in a quiet crofting community that looks out to sea is Taigh na Cloiche, a lovely detached house that sits in extensive grounds near Tarskavaig on the Sleat peninsula of the Isle of Skye.
Situated up a rough track, this charming croft house has been modernised and extended to create a cheerful and welcoming holiday home. The main accommodation is open plan with cosy seating arranged by the wood-burning stove at one end of the room and an elegant dining kitchen with a large range cooker at the other.
A separate utility room houses the laundry facilities and has a handy pulley rack for drying wet clothes neatly out of the way. There is also a double bedroom and a modern wet room style shower room on this level and the sunroom at the front of the house has French doors that allow you to really appreciate your surroundings and ‘bring the outdoors in’.
An open wooden staircase leads upstairs to the two bedrooms, a double and a twin, and an attractive family bathroom where there is the choice of a shower or a relaxing soak in the roll-top bath. Off the spacious landing is a study/snug where you can catch up on some work or simply relax with a book.
There is plenty of parking and about 3 acres of rough meadowland grounds around the house, although there are some boggy and raised areas so care should be taken. There are wonderful views out to sea, the isles of Canna and Rum and the southern end of the Black Cuillin mountain range to admire and there is even a stone in the grounds that came from an ancient chapel and is said to have ‘mystical properties’.
