The Property

Uig 7 miles. This compact and comfortable self-contained apartment, forming part of the owner's home but with a private entrance, is located on the northern point on the mystical Isle of Skye. From this apartment on Skye, there are excellent views across The Minch to the Outer Hebrides, where you can often encounter startling sunsets across the sea. This Skye apartment is ideal for a couple wishing to explore the staggeringly beautiful, romantic scenery together, and luxuriate in the peace and tranquillity of this celebrated island. The neat accommodation is set across two floors, with an upside down layout offering a spacious ground floor bedroom that overlooks the front garden, and a well-equipped, first floor open plan living area with large Velux windows, allowing for fine views. The garden to the front sits beside open fields, where sheep graze contentedly and the only sounds to be heard are soothing birdsong; a lovely outdoor area for an early morning coffee or a summer evening's glass of wine. Just a short distance from this Skye apartment is the grave of Flora MacDonald, who famously assisted the escape of Bonnie Prince Charlie after the defeat of the Jacobites, an action romanticised by the haunting lullaby of the Skye Boat Song. Also very close to this charming apartment near Uig is the Skye Museum of Island Life, which is assembled amongst a cluster of thatched cottages, and well worth a visit to gain insight into island traditions from bygone days. Sheer sea cliffs, isolated beaches and jagged black peaks provide sublime, varied scenery for adventures with your loved one. Skye is a unique setting for a romantic getaway, and this cosy Skye apartment is an ideal base to ensure you enjoy a memorable stay on 'The Misty Isle'.

About the location

UIG

Portree 14 miles.

The village of Uig (pronounced "oo-ig"), at the northern tip of Skye, rests on the shores of Loch Snizort, Skye’s largest sea loch off the Atlantic. The village boasts two pubs, two shops, a hotel, a filling station and cafe, as well as two other businesses well-worth a visit. Uig Pottery sells a range of high quality pottery produced on-site, while the Skye Brewery sells its own superb real ales from the brewery shop. Sheltered by high ballistic cliffs, the bay is one of the most beautiful in Skye, and is home to the ferry crossing to the Western Isles. Wildlife in the area includes golden eagles, sea eagles, puffins, pilot whales, seals and dolphins. The attractions of the Isle, including the main town of Portree, are all within easy reach of this tranquil base.
